Yoshiki is the master of the locked room mystery. In this series 5 Japanese teenagers who all play the popular phone game Rabbit Doubt decide to meet in person. After a night of karaoke the 5 friends and one innocent bystander wake up in a locked room with barcodes on various parts of their bodies.

The group finds out that they are playing a twisted real world version of the game. With the cryptic message “The liar must Die” found on one of the walls it isn't long before bodies start turning up. I really enjoyed how quickly the plot moved. The characters were also well written. The reader quickly becomes invested in the story and the drama of the situations. The art is fantastic and really manages to give readers the same experiences as the characters.

I’m really looking forward to the next volume.
