Real Account (#2)

Definitely a dark series with some explicit art and themes. I'm loving the intensity of it! This volume concentrates on one game and kills off a lot of people ruthlessly. They get into teams of ten then all their deleted tweets are made public and they must try to kill each other by finding dark tweets that will make their followers drop them. Ataru has joined with a few people trying to team up and stay alive together and we get to know these characters a lot better. Akuma has some shocking secrets revealed and one of the main characters,at this point, surprisingly gets killed. This is really getting deep by examining the ruthlessness of social media.
