One day, he awakes in what appears to be a tropical island, though he has no memory of how or why he has come to be there. While wandering around, Ryuuta sees someone and calls out for help. The stranger responds by throwing a bomb at him! Now Ryuuta realizes both that his life is in danger and that he has somehow been trapped in a real-life version of his favorite game!

HELL YEA CROSS GAME!

Everyone should read literally every manga that Mitsuru Adachi has ever released, and he's been writing since the 70's. Best mangaka out there.

Wow no comment about Btooom!? I love what was released from it so far. Reminds me a lot of Battle Royale, but just more action and explosions in comparison to psychological horror

love your comment! I agree that it's alot like battle royale, but not to the point of plagiarism. I like that they use bombs in btooom as opposed to guns in battle royale... to me the bombs involve more strategy to use instead of just shooting up people.
