Synopsis/Plot Summary: Still living with his mother, Ryouta Sakamoto has nothing so far to show for his life other than being Japan’s top player for the popular online game “Btooom!” When he suddenly awakens stranded on a deserted island without any knowledge of the situation other than noticing a green crystal embedded in his hand, he realizes that the game he’s #1 at has become a reality. In order to win the game and escape to their normal life, a player must kill seven other participants, taking their crystals as proof of victory. Ironically, Ryouta runs into his in-game wife Himiko, and the two team up to survive and escape the island together, all while getting to personally know each other for once.
7. Kamisama no Memochou (Heaven’s Memo Pad)
Synopsis/Plot Summary: Narumi Fujishima has a hard time fitting in at school, typically isolating himself to the roof of the school building. But enough about him. When encountered by Ayaka, the only member of the Gardening Committee, she introduces him to a place he’ll feel right at home. A place for NEET Detectives. Ran by super-cute loli Alice (age unknown) who works directly from her room on the third floor of the Hanamaru shop, she is an expert NEET, hikikomori, and hacking specialist. Think well air conditioned space, big comfy bed, lots of computer monitors, not to mention plushies (and a fridge full of Dr. Pepper). Along with other colorful members, the NEET Detectives work together using their diverse skillset to battle against gangs, thieves, drug lords, you name it. Who said NEETs were useless to society?
