AS THE GODS WILL bursts onto the screen with a CLOCKWORK ORANGE-style daruma doll leading a class of students in a lethal game of Red Light, Green Light. If the doll sees someone move, it makes the person’s head explode, which promptly triggers further panic, and further explosions. Shun, a bummed-out teen obsessed with violent video games, wins the game, if only because none of his classmates made it through. The poor guy is hardly at the end of his troubles. Further trials, involving among other things a giant good-luck cat and nightmare nursery rhymes care of creepy kokeshi dolls, await the school’s few survivors, among them Shun, his crush Ichika, and Takeru, a goon with psychopathic tendencies.
