One ninth-grade class, 42 students, marooned on an island and forced to kill or be killed in a government-sanctioned, televised game called The Program. The rules: after three days, only one student can remain alive or they all die. Weapons are handed out and each student is sent out into the field alone - unprepared for the horror that awaits them. Many classmates quickly turn on each other in this twisted battle for survival, but amid the betrayals and rising body count, new friendships are forged and existing love gives new meaning to the phrase, "Till death do us part."
Story by Koshun Takami and art by Masayuki Taguchi.
