Suicide is on the rise for no apparent reason, affecting adults and children alike. All they have in common is accounts in a brutal online game called Dystopia. When tragedy strikes a woman named Hitomi, she soon joins Dystopia and explores its horrors. But when she realizes the game feels a little too real, it’s up to her and a genius hacker named Shunsuke to figure out what’s really causing these deaths.
I read this based on a rave review and a love of high risk game stories. There is no high risk game here, so don't be drawn in by that. The connection between the game and death is tenuous at best, and never really explored. The characters are never developed, even in a superficial way. The manga is short (its one redeeming quality) which means they rush through the story, leaving it thin and full of wholes. There is some random rape and violence and gore that is supposed to shock and titilate but it is very poorly executed. I wouldn't recommend even wasting the short amount of time necessary to read this one.
