Tohyo Game’s conclusion is screwed up

I mean, seriously screwed up. In the best way I can think of.

Anyone else who was anxiously waiting to find out why Shuusuke was the votekeeper of the previous game will find at least some level of satisfaction as detectives investigating the deaths at the school learn more about what’s going on — and what’s been going on — in the opening pages of the manga. After the Volume 2 cliffhanger, I almost flipped a table when the tension was resolved so easily, but that opened the door for the rest of the story.

Tohyo Game’s second volume brings a new dimension to the series

tohyogame_v2_tp-714x1024My newest review at Girls in Capes focuses on the next volume of Tohyo Game.

It’s really this volume that introduces my favorite aspect of death match stories: the revealing actions of the players as they try to survive.

Volume Two of Tohyo Game features quite a lot of this. Several characters scheme various methods to stay alive, with one character openly suggesting a sacrifice of a student in the next round. And, true to the death match genre, the schemes don’t exactly go as planned as desperation takes hold of the remaining players.
