The Tasūketsu manga's first part premiered in 2013 and ended in 2014. The manga's second part Tasūketsu: FINAL KEQ debuted in 2015 and ended in 2017. Tasūketsu: Judgement Assizes, the manga's third part, premiered on GANMA! in November 2017.

The manga's story follows a group of five in a world where people have suddenly disappeared. A mysterious self-proclaimed "Emperor" gathers five people together through anonymous messages and has them participate in a game. Participants answer the question "Do you want to live or die?" The game has only one rule: "Majority dies."

The manga previously inspired the Tasūketsu: Judgement Assizes anime short that was funded through a Campfire crowdfunding campaign in 2020. The anime short released in January 2021 and had a different cast from this new project.
