Description: Meet Sakai Hiroaki, a high school teenage mastermind with a genius-level intelligence and a lack of interest in anything that is easy to him.

During one unlucky day, in an attempt to stop a student from committing suicide, he ends up committing suicide himself.

After he awakens, he finds himself not in the real world, nor in heaven, but in purgatory, along with a group of others who did the same: commit suicide.

Sakai discovers that he and his peers are subjected to never-ending intense death games in this world for reasons unknown to him, and he tries to find a way to escape.

Also, while scanlators did a great job (as always, thank you Kirei Cake), they unfortunately mixed up 罪 and 罰. Chapters should be called "Sin of ***".

*thinks about chapters read*

*looks at genre tags*

Where do you see harem?

Further. It gets members gradually as you will see when scanlators catch up. Well maybe it's not a harem, but there's a strong bias towards female characters.

Spoiler

This must be the 2856th manga series with the same looking generic MC and harem.

And it reminds me of Kami-sama no Iu Toori. The MC will never be the first to play a game. Then, he will figure out what to do.

Yeah sure make your self believe that. for starters this author doesn't do harem.

You sure? The hairstyle the MC has plus his sharp eyes and small pupil is actually a combination quite rare for MC in a manga medium. Lelouch Lamperouge is one of the few similar MC i can think of, and even then, there's still differences between two.

If you're talking about his clothes, then that was basically Japanese standard school male uniform called Gakuran. Nothing's wrong with so many characters, who are still in high-school, wearing the same thing.

 

And, where do you actually see harem? True there's an unbalance between prominent male and female characters as of now, but that doesn't actually automatically means harem. If you're actually trying to use harem as a basis for your complaint, try to do that when there's a harem tag for the manga, or at least when canonically two or more characters are romantically interested in one person.

If you die, but your enemy didn't kill you, you win!

Well, that's pretty different.

 

Definitely a 'Victory Pose' you don't see everyday.

 

And your idname is so fitting.

Well, that's pretty different.

I guess their plan blew her mind away.

so if the killer lose, she won't get resurrected?

or only the people that killed by the killer

She will be resurrected.

 

The only condition where any participant will die permanently is when everyone is dead during the game.

So actually, even if the killer wins, as long as she didn't also die, the other participant will also be resurrected, i believe. It's just, well, the killer will be the one to gains the most Points. Remember that everyone's ultimate goal in that Purgatory is to be resurrected for real, by collecting Points until the counts on their chest hit zero.

so if the killer lose, she won't get resurrected?

or only the people that killed by the killer

 

I think all person died in that game (including the killer) will be resurrected because the game finished without everyone dying...

so if the killer lose, she won't get resurrected?

or only the people that killed by the killer

I got the feeling that Sakai winning the game by getting killed is going to be a running trope for him.

 

I mean, look:

Spoiler

He already kinda declared something that if you look at it the other way, means that he won't hesitate to die if it is to ensures victory.

Doesn't look like it'll let them select 0 points on purpose.

 

This then further prove that Prim's idea of battling each other at the start is not effective. Agreed?

it feels like this manga has too much room for plot holes and they are gonna use it, still gonna give it a chance, I hope it gets up dates.

No? Not everyone will be using a point.

It's always one person uses 1 and the other one uses 0.
Hence, everyone will lose at least once following this strategy.
Since the killer can't lose a battle, he has to use 1 or more, so they know who the killer is.

The only flaw I can see is that if someone who is not the killer fakes it and uses 1 point.
Then you can't really tell who is the killer.

body different is another thing but...  possible killer is one in those 3 girls ...so the MC. will sure get rape at this rate :x  ,  if he want to survive now need to team up and stop killer by tie her up for the rest of time ... with the rope of love ...

Well, there was huge flaw, which would make this cyber battle pointless.
You could choose how many points use in battle.So everybody(including the killer) would give 1 point.

There aren't really any logical reason as of now, but if i understand this right, it was because that plan basically kills the game's thrill and suspense, and doing so is dangerous because it was implied that that could anger the "Game Dealer". It appears that these mysterious Dealers want each and every game to be a spectacular death game show.

That aide, can someone explain why having everyone battle in the beginning wouldn't work? The strategy suggested by Prim.
If the killer loses in a battle, the others win, and if the killer resists, it would be obvious who the killer is.
Y is this no good?

In my opinion the actual route is

Yeah, and if the killer kills them tonight, he gets 4 points for 11 total.
As the Hat Girl said, 11 would be enough to kill everyone tomorrow.

What about building a barricade in your room? put stuff on the door to slow down the killer, the electroshock will last a few minutes, if the killer cannot break your barrier in those minutes it'll become dangerous for the killer to keep attacking.  

 

That strategy sounds like an action-horror solution to a psychological-horror problem, which means it's guaranteed to fail in the most spectacular way possible.  Serious answer is the barricade only works if the killer uses paralysis before opening the door.

 

When the dealer was explaining the rules (at least in translation) it seems like they were ambiguous as to whether anyone can get points by killing or if that only applies to the killer, or what happens (or doesn't happen) if a 'battle' results in a tie. For that matter, Kagamiya's explanation made no indication whether randomly killing everyone during a game (outside of the game's rules, as long as you 'win' the game itself) would the affect the overall score counter.  I'm guessing publication would include 'supplementary' materials just to explain all of the insane corner-cases, unless the author is trolling.

Apparently, the official name for this series is "Rengoku Dead Role" (where Rengoku means Purgatory).
I'm going to keep the Purgatory in the name, but I'd like your opinions as to whether to keep the "Roll" or change it to "Role" from now on.
Thanks for reading~

Roll with it.

Jokes aside, I think you should change it. It helps avoid any unnecessary confusion down the line, and is as you said closer to the original title.

Soo, Town of Salem game?

 

Kind of like an sk-mayor hybrid vs. a bunch of vets with no alerts lol
