Btooom! (ブトゥーム)Sakamoto Ryuuta is an unemployed 22-year-old who lives with his mother. In the real world, there may be nothing really special about him, but online, he's one of the world's top players of the combat game "BTOOOM"!
By INOUE Junya
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! Will Ryuuta be able to survive long enough to figure out how and why he ended up here?[tethysdust]

i'm reading this.
Himiko is hot!
And the story is well done.
Not a masterpiece but quite enjoyable.
the plot is fluent... good action... and himiko is hot (ops, i have already said this)
so intresting because myself is a gamer too and i play lots of first person shooter too XD
too bad it's xbox ; u;
not ps3 ; u;
I like it, it isn't a masterpiece but you can enjoy it and it is really easy to read and very nice. It has a cool plot for the ones that like videogames (for me 2). The plot resembles battle royale but it less ecchi and violent
I caught up to the recent chapter, I find it interesting,,, looking forward to the coming chapters!!! I can't get bored of a series with many characters giving their all trying to trick, outsmart, ambush and eliminate each other in order to survive, and the bonds created between some people under such circumstances...
I'm surprise that there's not more people reading this right now...
This is a pretty manga, and, as far as I can tell, the anime is pretty popular!
PS: BTW, the chapter 52 just came out today!
I didn't enjoy what I saw of the anime, it wasn't too bad, just not my thing. However having a skim through the pages of the manga, not too bad. I'll definitely check out in the near future.
S2S just dropped the manga unless they can get a translator for it soon.
