Junya Inoue's original manga centers around Sakamoto, a NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) young man and a top-ranked player in the online combat game Btooom! One day, he wakes up on a tropical island without remembering how he got there. He sees a figure in the distance and asks for help. However, the figure responds by throwing something at Ryūta — a "BIM" bomb.
First-time series director Kotono Watanabe (episode director on Chihayafuru, Aoi Bungaku Series, Puella Magi Madoka Magica) directed the project at the studio Madhouse, and Yousuke Kuroda (Best Student Council, Hayate the Combat Butler, Hellsing, Highschool of the Dead, Mobile Suit Gundam 00) wrote the scripts. The 12-episode series aired from October-Deember 2012.
Yen Press is releasing the original manga in North America.
Update: Steven Foster is directing the dub. Thanks, getchman.
