Be careful what you wish for. Outsider Ryohei Arisu wanted nothing more than to leave his mundane life behind, but a careless wish on a firecracker brings him to the post-apocalyptic Borderland, a dark parallel world where danger lurks around every corner and survival is not guaranteed.
To survive, Ryohei and other unwilling participants must win a series of deadly games, each more dangerous than the last – but to return home, not only his skills but Ryohei’s humanity will be tested.
