SAVING YOURSELF IS EVEN HARDER
IN EXCITING NEW MANGA SERIES
An Innocent Game Turns Deadly In New Sci-Fi Manga
One summer, fifteen kids innocently wander into a nearby seaside cave. There they meet a strange man who invites them to play an exciting new video game. This game, he explains, pits one lone giant robot against a horde of alien invaders. To play the game, all they have to do is sign a simple contract. The game stops being fun when the kids find out the true purpose of their pact.
