The manga centers on Eyama Aito, a depressed high school student who is a victim of bullying every day. He receives a letter on the last day of school before summer vacation, inviting him to a "confinement game" where he can name any person, who will then be confined for a month. Aside from murder, Eyama is allowed to do anything to the person, with the promise of a money reward at the end. For his target, Eyama picks Aya Kirishima, the ringleader of the pack who bully him.
Futabasha published the manga's first compiled book volume in February 2016. The manga's eighth compiled volume shipped on December 12.
Production I.G launched a global version of the Anime Beans app on December 17. The global version features all the anime on the Japanese app, and 10 of the anime currently have English subtitles. Production I.G plans to subtitle more of the anime on the app in the future.
Production I.G launched the Tate Anime app in June 2017 and it ended service on May 31. The app offered short (about three-minute) anime that update on weekdays, and each series had 10 episodes. The anime was presented vertically for smartphones. Production I.G rebranded the app as Anime Beans in June, and it no longer features exclusively vertical anime.
