Based on the manga, it's the hell of a psychological drama.
I liken it to "Liar Game," where people manipulate each other for money by lowering their debts. Both have tons of puzzles in a game that will test their humanity, morality, loyalty and, of course, friendship. So it comes down to the premise of "Tomodachi Game" that should be translated as "Game of Friendship".
The drama was very well planned, starting read more with the story that is not at all simple, it is rich in tormenting elements, where they test all the feelings of the participants and stirring the feelings of the spectators.
The quality of the cast here is irrelevant, after all they are all players of distinct minds who act differently under the pressure of a complicated game with a soundtrack that helps and much to give the climate of tension necessary for the story. Reasoning in a limited time to choose the correct answer is undoubtedly torturous, experiencing real tension and emotion is difficult even for those who watch, imagine who plays.
"Tomodachi Game" explores all the variables and perspectives of the participants, just a wrong answer and you are out of this game! Where friendship will speak louder than money or money will speak louder than friendship!

    This pre-movie drama is really interesting. I'm a little disappointed by 3 of the 5 main actors, who are very weak.
    But Yoshikawa Ryo and Yamada Yuki really level up the acting game.

    I'm just annoyed by the (useless) changes done in comparison with the manga, but... We'll see how the movies are made. I just hope they're not forcing a love-line between Sawaragi and Yuuichi, when she don't even appear a lot in the manga.

    (and if there's a hint of romance in the manga, it's between Yuichi and Kokorogi)

      That is not call low. Drama that are between 7 to 10, that consider to be good already. And sometimes, even it is not out yet. They start rating them already.
