In the real world, Ryuuta Sakamoto is a 22-year-old unemployed loser who lives with his mom. But in the online video game "Btooom!" he is one of the top 5 players in the world. One day he wakes up on an island with only a utility belt full of explosives and no idea of how he got there. When the first person he meets tries to kill him, Ryuuta soon realizes he's been dropped into a real-life version of his favorite video game, where the explosions are real, the deaths are permanent, and the only way out is to literally kill the competition.
