■ Synopsis
Kill 12 people? 12 year-olds play. 12 death game.

Death March Club

Just another elementary school in Tokyo—with a “LOSER” class where all sorts of drop-outs are brought here. Reycho is an oddball who’s in this class. On one summer day, Reycho’s class was on its way to a school trip when the bus was caught in a rock slide.

The students woke up… only to find themselves in an amusement park under the sea. It must have shut down a long time ago. Reycho and his friends were trapped in a deserted and spooky ruin. A clown appeared from out of nowhere… and it demands the kids to play a game to kill each other! Without time to understand what is going on, Reycho and his classmates are dragged into a game of life or death!

How will these kids survive this insane situation? While they are at their wit’s end… mysterious and uncanny powers awaken within them.

At the same time… an emergency situation took place above the waters.

■ Characters

A sixth grade boy.

Death March Club

A curious boy who sticks his nose into everything. He steps up to the plate in a crisis situation, not because he is courageous, but only because he is not aware of the potential risks. He is definitely a brat, in both good and bad ways. He is an immature and naive boy… and oblivious when it comes to girls.

A sixth grade girl.

Death March Club

A happy, but crazy, scatterbrained, and ditsy girl. She is totally off-key and usually ignored by others. She plays dumb, but actually has a brilliant mind. She is one of the first to notice the conspiracies plotted by the grown-ups.
