Since its serialization debuted in Bessatsu Shonen Magazine in 2011, the manga series "Kamisama no Iu Touri" ("AS THE GODS WILL") has received praise from a growing fan base with the help of its stunning summary developments and incredible intensity.
Its popularity has led to its sequel "Kamisama no Iu Touri 2" currently being serialized in Shukan Shonen Magazine.
Now, prodigy and film director Takashi Miike does the unpredictable? bringing this tale out of the film world’s off limit, to the big screen.
Shun Takahata (played by Sota Fukushi) is a high school teen bored with his humdrum life.
But one day, a mysterious Daruma doll suddenly appears in class and announces the commencement of a game with their lives on the line.
A Daruma doll, a beckoning cat, a Kokeshi doll, a polar bear, and a Matryoshka doll...
One after another, these strange, talking manifestations of popular toys present games that the students must pass.
If they don’t, instant death awaits them.
Is this really a game? If so, what is it for? Who are “God’s children”?
And what awaits Shun and his classmates who survive these games?
