Gantz

Gantz

Kei, a cynical and arrogant high school student, has minimal regard for others; so it's much to his surprise that when he's asked by his elementary school friend Kato to save a drunken bum laying on the subway tracks, he actually complies. However, no good deed goes unpunished, and they are swiftly decapitated by the oncoming train. Kei and Kato awaken in a nondescript room occupied by a black sphere and a variety of other people, and thus begins Gantz's game. In it, the players must face off against aliens in battles where death is inevitable and rewards are minimal. Unfortunately for them, this is just the beginning of their nightmare - at least, for those who manage to survive...

While not 100% similar, both involve players who have died and must battle it out (either with each other, or against external monsters/foes) for a rare and special prize. Dying in the game leads to a permanent death. I do think Gantz is the more superior of the two, but both will likely appeal to the same audiences.

Cock Robin wo Korosu no wa

Two high stakes games manga that pit players with a mysterious body mark against each other one on one. Both equally as uninteresting but might appeal to the audience due to the themes.

Real Account

Real Account

In the near future, everyone is hooked on the newest social network called Real Account, a service where the top users have hundreds or thousands of followers. One such user is Ataru Kashiwagi, an insecure student who retreats to the virtual world to escape his loneliness – even if his countless 'friends' don't know the real him. But soon, the network becomes all too real when he and 10,000 others are transported into the virtual world. They're greeted by the cheeky mascot Marble, who informs the group that they must beat a game to go home, but there's a catch: dying in the game means you, as well as your followers, die in real life. In such a fickle world where looks are everything and unfriending is as easy as a single click, will Ataru or any of the others survive till the end?
