The Tomodachi Game manga has been around for quite some time. It is an original concept by Mikoto Yamaguchi with a story and art by Yuki Sato.

While Mikoto Yamaguchi is known for the story and art of the Scumbug Loser manga, Yuki Sato is responsible for the art of the Sherlock Bones and Yokai Doctor manga, as well as the ending illustration for Attack on Titan episode 5.

Kodansha published and serialized the manga in Bessatsu Shonen Magazine, which was aimed at the shonen audience. The manga has been so popular that it has produced two live-action films and a television drama adaptation in 2017.

The manga follows Katagiri Yuuichi, a high school student, and his friends. Yuichi and his colleagues were duped into playing a series of friendship games after a theft incident at school.

The host of the games, the mascot Manabu-kun, informed them that they owed a large sum of money. Torn between friendship and money, Yuichi decides to find out the truth behind their predicament and Tomodachi Game's real traitor.

As part of the final arc, the manga recently released its 100th chapter. After seven years, the Tomodachi Game manga has reached the end of its final arc, which was announced in August 2020.

The manga's last arc will focus on the events that occurred following the first Tomodachi Game. The Adult Tomodachi Game marks the start of the final arc of the Tomodachi Game manga.

In case you’re not a manga reader, the anime will have enough source material to cover, allowing for future adaptations if the show goes well.

The series has released a total of 20 volumes as of April 8, 2022. It has been running for quite a very long time now due to the frequent hiatus from the creator.

The last hiatus reported was due to the author giving birth. Since then, it has been quiet after the return of the Tomodachi Game manga.

Regardless, the manga can be read in its original Japanese print on the Pocket Shone Magazine website. In terms of English release, both Kodansha US and the Manga Plus website don’t host the Tomodachi Game manga.
