It can be rough transferring to a new school—even more so if you don’t want to make any friends, like Nobuaki Kanazawa. But the reason for his antisocial behavior soon becomes clear when his class receives a text from someone called “The King.” Included are instructions for the “King’s Game,” and all class members must participate. Those who refuse to play, quit halfway, or don’t follow an order in the allotted time of 24 hours will receive a deadly punishment.
