But one day, a student by the name of Damon Maitsu, the Ultimate Debater, awakens within the school alongside 15 of his newest classmates. And to make matters worse, they discover that they are forced to partake in a killing game which will be documented for the world to see. Now Damon and his classmates must work together to survive the killing game and uncover the mystery of Eden's Garden.
