Synopsis of Tomodachi game

Katagiri Yuuichi believes friends are more important than money, but she also knows the difficulties of not having enough money. He's struggling to save so he can go on the high school trip after promising his four best friends that they would all go together. However, after all the money has been collected from the class, it will be stolen! The suspicion falls on Yuuichi's two friends, Sawaragi Shiho and Shibe Makoto.

Shortly afterwards, the five are kidnapped and wake up in a strange room with a character from an old anime. Apparently one of them put her in a "friendly game" to pay off her enormous debts. But who was he and why did they have such debts? Could they have stolen the class money to pay for entry to the game? Yuuichi and his best friends must succeed in psychological games that will test or destroy their trust in others.
