King's Game


Nobuaki Kanazawa and his classmates start receiving anonymous text messages from someone called King. The text messages were orders for the party game “King’s Game”. The king gives orders and you have to do them, if not you have to take the punishment. The class thinks it’s a joke and makes nothing of it until students start dying. Nobuaki loses his girlfriend Chiemi Honda and finds himself the lone survivor.

Nobuaki moves far away from the tragedy and transfers to a new high school. Still hunted by the past events of the King’s Game, Nobuaki ties to distance himself from the other students. A friendly girl name Natsuko Honda takes an interest in Nobuaki, but he only wants to be left alone. Nobuaki fears that the King’s Game may reappear, and the other students start to think poorly of Nobuaki.

The King’s Game begins again. The first order was for Nobuaki and Natsuko to kiss and the students think Nobuaki is sick to find an excuse to kiss Natsuko. Nobuaki quickly argues that the game is real and they’re all in danger, but no one believes him. Natsuko finds Nobuaki and kisses him because she likes him. Soon after the kiss a flood of orders were received and students start dying. Nobuaki is determined to find an end to the King’s Game.
