Plot Summary:
Makoto Hashimoto, a student of Shikanotoride Junior High School, is an unlucky girl who fears that her class will be picked for the year's "Program", an event hosted by the government that forces students to kill their classmates to survive. However, when she hears that all 50 Programs of the year have already been executed (making it 100% unlikely that she will participate in one), she decides to go with her class in the year's field trip without fear. In a sudden turn of events, her class is captured and held captive by the government and informed that the class will now take part in the new Navy Exclusive verison of the Program.
The manga follows the point of view of Girl #10 Makoto Hashimoto (橋本真恋人 Hashimoto Makoto), an unlucky girl who fears that her class will be chosen to participate in "the program," a mysterious event that forces students to kill each other. Makoto attends Shikanotoride Junior High School.

This manga was released straight to tankobon (graphic novel) format, therefore there was no serialization. However, a thirty page preview ran in Akita Shoten's Young Champion Magazine. The problem with straight to tankobon manga is that there is no indication whatsoever of when the next volume might be released.
Though the author is the same, the artist has changed from the original manga. The realistic grit of Masayuki Taguchi has been replaced by the lighthearted cartooniness of Hitoshi Tomizawa. Also, though it is still written by Koushun Takami, the original story is based on the universe of the films rather than that of the original novel.
