As the Gods Will Plot with Spoilers
Shun Takahata, a high school student, spends a lot of time playing violent video games. One morning at school, he complains about how dull his life is, but then he finds himself compelled to play in a game of Daruma-san ga koronda. With death as the punishment for losing. When the Daruma doll turns toward the chalkboard, a button on its back is revealed, which the students may try to push in order to stop the game before his timer runs out, but everyone in the class dies except Shun.
After the game, Shun meets up with his buddy Ichika Akimoto and heads to the school gym. There, they play a Maneki Neko game in which students dressed as mice try to toss a bell through a hoop connected to the collar of a huge beckoning cat while avoiding being eaten or crushed. The game is won with the help of Takeru Amaya, a disturbed student who appears to relish the chance to see so many fatalities and who, after winning the game, murders all the other survivors save Shun and Ichika. A sleeping gas emitted by the big beckoning cat then knocks the three of them unconscious. They wake up in a room with other students within a huge cube hanging above Tokyo.
The next game is Kagome Kagome, in which pupils are blindfolded and must identify which of four floating Kokeshi wooden dolls is behind them within 10 seconds after the conclusion of a short song. If they don’t, they’ll be struck by a red laser and the dolls will use telekinesis to destroy their bodies. If the Kokeshi lose, they will erupt, and one of them will release an answer key, which will unlock the doors and allow the pupils to go to the next level. By winning the game, Shun encounters and rescues Shoko Takase, and they reconnect with Ichika and Yukio Sanada, whom they prevent from being murdered by a fifth Kokeshi by holding their hands.
The Next Level
The four go to the next level with Eiji Oku and Kotaro Maeda. Where they must use their keys to open a huge smiling head. Amaya enters the room with three additional keys and murders a prisoner he has brought in. The enormous head rolls away to build a tunnel into the next chamber after the seven survivors utilize their keys. Meanwhile, each player is shown on television screens for the rest of the team to watch. Shirokuma, a white polar bear that comes to them within a freezing chamber, is the following game.
The pupils must all answer the white bear’s questions truthfully, or else they will be compelled to murder the one they think is lying. Shoko and Yukio are murdered, and Shun quickly learns that the bear is the actual liar and that its true color is black, allowing him to win the game and survive with the other four pupils.
The last game
The last game, represented by a Matryoshka doll, is a kick-the-can game that must be finished before sunset. The remaining five each choose a stick, and whomever gets the red one becomes the “Devil.” Whoever’s visage is seen and is summoned by the “Devil” is apprehended and imprisoned. Kicking the can in the center causes it to explode, killing any surrounding players. Takeru obtained the red stick, and three pupils were quickly apprehended. While Shun sought armor to hide his face. Shun falls into the water while chained to Takeru’s armor. Shun climbs back up, having released himself from the armor, while Takeru struggles to pull the armor up to prevent being dragged down. Both sprint towards the can, and Shun is the first to kick it, winning the game.
The Matryoshka doll
The Matryoshka doll indicates that the explosion was a hoax and that they will not be harmed if they lose the game. They had a popsicle party where they discover their destinies on the wooden stick, and the final game was just for fun. Shun and Takeru survive, but Ichika, Eiji, and Kotaro are murdered by a Matryoshka doll that disintegrates them with lasers. Shun and Takeru exit from the cube to witness people cheering for them, while a hikikomori, who has been watching them from his chamber, leaves his home, perhaps to discover the true identity of “God.”
Takeru rejoices as Shun kneels in sorrow at all of his losses. declaring that “there is no God.” One of the Matryoshka dolls corrects him and says that the lethal games would bring them to “God,” as it depicts a vagabond who was also a spectator of those games and the “God” behind these death games.
