Escape Sheep Land

Original Title : エスケープ・シープ・ランド
Romanized Title: Escape Sheep Land
Author: Baba Okina (馬場翁)
Link: Kakuyomu, chapter 1 is here
Status: 1 chapter, ongoing (weekly, Monday)

This is a new WN by the author of Kumo desu ga, Nani ka?.

Description (translated from Kakuyomu):
Quote:
Kashiwagi Daigo's life had broken.
Thanks to the father he'd never known, and above all, the mother who didn't hesitate to beat him since he was little.

But the way that day broke was something else.
A sudden kidnapping. Guys with ugly mascot character masks wielding stunguns.
And this is what cinched it.
"The game's content is exceedingly simple! Just survive seven days! Right? Isn't that easy?"

A death game full of mysteries begins at a huge amusement park on a remote island...!
Some of the story elements resemble Battle Royale. It's still early, so it's hard to say what the story will evolve into, but I'm enjoying the protagonist's dry perspective. There's a single heroine so far, Yuu (優).

He is probably using this novel to desblock his writhing his last chapter Sophia jugement was terrible he needs new ideias.

Can't say i like the whole battle royale here sonds too forced but if that helps Kumo then all the better.

Yeah, that's what I thought, too. I'm guessing the author has a good relationship with Kadokawa and they said "Hey, why don't you help us out by contributing to Kakuyomu and maybe it'll indirectly alleviate your writer's block?" I personally don't expect this WN to last more than a few months, and am not worried that Kumo will go eternal. The next Kumo chapter is the culmination of the entire arc, so it's obviously going to be hard for the author to write. After that, it'll return to being easier for her.

The plot may sound forced, but I think anyone who can read it should give it a shot. Death games have been done before, but Baba Okina's narration style makes it a lot of fun. I avoided commenting earlier to give people a chance to read chapter 1, but some of what intrigued me was
Spoiler for 1:
