Just finished the first volume of Btoom!!. So far, it's definitely in my keeper pile. It's reminding me a lot of series like Battle Royale, Gantz, Attack on Titan, Bloody Monday, and Cage of Eden in that it isn't sugar coating the violence. The protagonist has his flaws, but for me that only highlights the difference between his true character and how he came to perceive himself in the gaming world. It's not my favorite of the ultraviolent genre, but it does gain major pointage in my book for not resorting to using guns. So far- B
Go Team Rabbits!
