The series introduced a dystopian world where Tokyo is abandoned and trapped people are pitted against each other in dangerous and deadly games for a little more time to live. And when it comes to survival, there’s nothing called a moral compass. What comes first is one’s own survival, no matter how much betrayal and treachery it takes.
