The following voice actors make up the cast:

The manga was recognized in two consecutive years, 2019 and 2020, at AnimeJapan as one of the top 10 “manga that fans most want to see turned into an anime”.

The manga was published in Japan in two parts. The first part was pre-published between 2013 and 2014, and the second, titled Tasûketsu: FINAL KEQ, between 2015 and 2017. The third part, Tasûketsu: Judgement Assizes, was released on GANMA! in November 2017.

The story follows a group of five individuals living in a world experiencing a massive series of disappearances. A self-proclaimed “Emperor” gathers five people through private messages and involves them in a game. The participants are faced with this question: “Do you wish to live or die?” However, there is only one rule: “the majority dies”.

Previously, the manga inspired a short anime series, called Tasûketsu: Judgement Assizes, which was funded in 2020 through a Campfire campaign. The project was released in January 2021 with a different voice cast.
