"Death Game Park" is an action thriller reminiscent of Kinji Fukasaku's "Battle Royale." A group of young adults have been forced to participate in a "death game" for an unknown purpose. Unable to call for help, they have to muster their strength in order to survive and find a way to escape. Note: This is a Mobile Drama (BeeTV) and has around 24 episodes with the episodes being around 5 minutes each. read moreHowever, the subbers (TV-Nihon) have merged this all into one long "movie."

I just finished watching this, and I can say, I'm bit irritated, but on the same time, really satisfied about what I had watched. "It's like a Battle Royale", got me interested about this drama, but to be honest, saying "the movie is like SAW" would describe it better. (To me, this isn't really bad thing, since I could watch SAWs anywhere, anytime. ?)

STORY
What comes to story, I enjoyed it read more a lot, though the start of the game was such a cliche. You know right away, who is the main character, and who are going to be with him the whole time. Story goes smoothly, and since I watched this as a "movie version", I didn't even notice how almost 2 hours passed by. Small warning about the ending; Mindf*uck and if you've seen the video 'angry German kid' in Youtube, well, beware, you might see another one in the end of the drama.

ACTING/CAST
To be honest, I started to watch this only because I knew Aibu Saki was acting on it. Well, she only showed up few times. Anyway, the whole cast was great. About acting I can't say same. Few actors did well, but few didn't. Death scenes had really crappy acting and another scenes, where I just wanted to hit my head to wall, was during scenes when the maincharacter had a headache. When you watch it, you know why. Fight scenes were made well, btw.

Though there were lots of not-so-good acting in this series, and I don't remember anything about the soundtrack, I'd watch this again. I found this entertaining, since the plot was bit different from the usual 'death game'-plots and there were few scenes, where was really good acting and the use of camera etc. was amazing, especially during last 30 minutes.

Basically I freaking love this! I loved it the first time and I loved it this time around too! This drama is everything I want! Sexy actors, crazy plot, confusing questions, great action, I was even impressed by the camera shots in this! The only really why I've knocked it down to a 9 from 10 this time around is because A. I wanted so much more information! I want character backstories, read more sequels, more episodes etc. and B. That ending!! It's a freaking amazing ending but makes you go 'ah crap there's no sequel. It needs one!'. Luckily I have the book so maybe I can get more info from that in future.

    Reminded me of Riaru Onigokko at first but finally it's more like SAW.

    Anyway i gave 3 stars for the cast but it deserves only 2 stars imo. There was action all the time but i was bored all the way. Story was good but they should have exploited it more, it's a waste.

    Well, i guess it was decent enough for a mobile serie.

    I'm a little confused with the ending. At first i thought its a prison game and all died, but the strange matrix scene in the end and with the bad guy on the computer all the time, made it look like it was all a virtual world. So i thought that maybe no one died, because it was not real.
    Did someone think the same way or are my thoughts to absurd? XD

    I'm so happy I watched this because I honestly didn't really think it'd be that great. I think it would be a lot better if it was made into an actual drama or a movie instead of a mobile drama. I think the ending made perfect sense. I had a couple issues with some of their reactions to things but over all it was nice and worth my time.
