The student Kaname Sudou receives an invitation from a classmate to play the mobile game “Darwin’s Game“. When Kaname opens the app, a snake springs from his display and bites him on the neck, causing him to lose consciousness. He wakes up in the hospital room and realizes that there is no bite mark on his neck. On the way home, he thinks about his experience and dismisses the surreal experience as a hallucination.
On the train, curiosity gets the better of him and once again he opens the app. However, since it seems to be like any other fighting game, he decides to start his first match. His initial relief lasts only a short time, however, as his opponent in the game unexpectedly appears right in front of him and tries to chase him with a knife. While desperately running for his life, Kaname counts one and one together and has to admit to himself that “Darwin’s Game” is no ordinary game, but a brutal fight for survival.
The mystery anime series is based on a 2013 manga series and aired on Japanese television between January and March 2020. Publisher “peppermint anime” released the series in two volumes on DVD and Blu-ray. The original manga series is from FLIPFLOPs.
