The Darwin’s Game manga by FLIPFLOPs duos, consisting of artist Yuki Takahata and writer Shu Miyama (Ginko), began serialization in January 2013 in the aforementioned magazine. In 2020, it received an anime adaptation by studio Nexus, with Yusuke Kobayashi, Reina Ueda, and Nichiki Omori in the main cast. Yoshinobu Tokumoto directed the anime, while Shu Miyama (writer of the FLIPFLOPs duo) wrote the script. The franchise also has a light novel, titled Darwin’s Game: Flag Game, written by Shu Miyama and illustrated by Tayaki Takaha. The manga has not been licensed in English yet.
Funimation initially streamed the anime, which is now available on Crunchyroll in select regions. The streaming platform describes the plot as:
Kaname Sudo, an ordinary high school student, receives an invitation email to try a mysterious app called “Darwin’s Game.” Kaname, upon launching the app, is drawn into a game where players fight one another using superpowers called Sigils. Without knowing the reason for all this, can Kaname survive furious battles against the powerful players who attack him?
