Title: Darwin’s Game
Original Title: ダーウィンズゲーム
An unknowing Sudou Kaname is invited to try out a new mysterious mobile app game called Darwin’s Game, but later realizes that he’s in for more than he’s bargained for when he finds out that there’s no way to quit the game.
DISCLAIMER! This is the review of the 4th chapter of this manga. By being a review of a single chapter it can contain various SPOILERS. Read at your discretion.
This chapter describes what happened to Kaname right after the battle with Banda and it showcases the little things that I really appreciated when watching the anime: the fact that Darwin’s Game has a gatcha system as the majority of the Japanese mobile games.
Also in the manga this part seems more fictionalized with more small parenthesis that weren’t present in the anime.
I think I like how the police’s investigations help explain a bit how the game is still undiscovered from the ones that aren’t participating. This increases the realism of the story without leaving anything to chance.
This is also the chapter where things start to become a bit more gory with the appearance of the “Eight”… but we also have the introduction of two other characters that in the anime are presented only later.
