The 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.
Btooom! ran in Shinchosha's Weekly Comic Bunch and Monthly Comic @Bunch magazines, and the 13th volume shipped in Japan in January. Yen Press is releasing the original manga in North America, and the fifth volume shipped last month.
