Manga about a deadly survival game are some of the most emotionally intense, high stakes manga in the world. That being said, it's hard to figure out which are truly the best survival game manga. This list is here to help, with ranked recommendations influenced by the votes of readers like you!

Some survival game manga are great because of how seemingly ordinary they are. Koushun Takami's Battle Royale takes viewers on a journey with a group of students who are forced to fight for their lives. Others, like Future Diary by Sakae Esuno, are far more fantastical - the characters aren't just fighting for their survival, they're fighting for a chance to become gods. Whether you like your survival games chillingly ordinary or out of this world, there's something on this list for you. 

Let the world know what you think by voting up the survival game manga recommendations that you think deserve a top spot on the list.
