From Kodansha:
Like many of his peers, Ataru Kashiwagi has found himself addicted to the newest social networking service, Real Account. But one day, Ataru and almost 10,000 other people, get sucked into the Real Account Zone, where they have become players in a series of deadly games. The basic rules of these games are simple—if you lose all your followers, you die in real life, and if you die, all of your followers die with you. As these depraved games decimate the players around him, Ataru must use quick thinking and his knowledge of Real Account to win each round and return to the real world. But when true friendship determines whether he lives or dies, can Ataru really survive when the only people he can count on are his Internet friends?

Very interesting and entertaining

Well, I liked the first part more than the second. The first MC and the other character's were better. The second MC is just the worst. The story and the explanation are clear and easy to understand. Thankfully there's not much ecchi.

I completed this one and enjoyed it very much, but was disappointed when I read Real Account II. There are plenty of improvements, like the art and Marble's personality, but I liked the characters and story in the first more.

Generic ecchi death game

It's entertaining but really not novel at all. It's like the Hwang Mi Ri of death game stories. On the side, you have a clingy girl or two who hang onto the MC that solves/survives through the death puzzles. Fanservice boob/panty shots once or twice every chapter. The twists in each of the death puzzles aren't that amazing. A lot of times, it's solved by the mangaka adding a new element just so that the MC can solve it. It brings the story down a notch.

Probably, the most interesting thing is the parallel story going on.

Read until chapter 62 in raws. The story ties up quite well by then, no spoilers. It's compact and not wishy-washy.

It does jump to a different MC at one point, and I felt that it linked up decently when it was after the MC revealed a fake identity. Naturally, we'd want to know the "real" one.

Throughout the series, however, I did feel that the games were overly simple and the MCs were slow to come up with solutions, when solutions were incredibly straightforward compared to Iutoori and Liar Game etc. This series is sorely lacking a genius character that makes the reader excited in Play/Die situations.

I don't understand.. There are 2 Real Accounts? Two parallel stories? Though there is only one here in MangaUpdates, I just read until chapter 1 of the first, and c25 of the second.. which is called a sequel.
Wonder what happened.. it's not a One Shot vs Serialization.

Still, pretty enjoyable. The games and the solutions for each.

The premise is such that it could have been very interesting but of course it's written in a very cliche way with nearly everything going in the protagonists way. Not to mention his luck and any real lack of danger since we know he is the MC so therefore he will __ (win/com out on top/survive) etc etc

only a few chapters have been released so far, but I'm definately looking forward to this manga's progression in the future! I actually wasn't expecting all that much but so far it's very exciting and intense and I can see it continuing to develop into a real great story. it also really hits home with the whole social media controlled distopia (well maybe distopia isn't the right word) in today's technological society.
anyway, glad I picked this up, and I reccomend others to keep an eye on it as well.

So yeah. At first i thought it will be like SAO with all of those fighting and such. But it wasn't like that. It's one of those story plot that have the same opening and theme however completely difference flow.

Art isn't a bad thing as well. No flashy fan service (sorry i don't like ecchi). Just right.

It's really nice as well since so far it's been sticking in what normal people CAN do without game modification or anything. Strengthening bonds (so far)....

So far i can't thing anything more but it's promising story. But i'm gonna stick with this story as long as it will not go down fall.
