■ Introduction

I remembered.

They killed my little sister… they killed Misa.

Because I was hurt. Because I was about to die.

There can be any number of reasons for it.

But I can’t forgive them.

It’s unacceptable.

I will kill them all.

■ Summary

Exile Election

When he came to, he was standing at the entrance of the amusement park.

“…If you don’t do it soon, it will be too late. Look, the monster is right there—.”

Right after that, a monster he has never seen before with a strange voice raided the plaza and began to devour people. The monster’s appetite settled, and after it hurriedly left, there were 12 survivors.

“Like I said earlier, the only humans that were saved are those that are here now. But I cannot allow all everyone here to survive. That said, from this point on the number of people… will be decreased until we have just two people.”

The words that followed were far worse than can be imagined.

“Everyone will choose. Who should survive. So then, who should survive?”

■ Setting

Exile Election

Outside of “Aliceland,” the amusement park where the protagonist and company are based, is a devastated world in every respect.

There are monsters wandering the outside, and since they will undoubtedly kill and eat you if you encounter one, escape is impossible.

The protagonist and company, imprisoned in an amusement park that can be called a last fortress or even paradise, must participate in a death game called “Exile Election,” prepared by a mysterious mechanical doll named Alice, in order to survive.

■ Story Overview

Exile Election

The goal of the protagonist, Kaname Ichijou, is to get revenge on the nine people who exiled his little sister in the very first election.
