The manga follows the story of two childhood friends, Uzuki, who is a timid crybaby, and Haruto, who always protects him from bullies. One day, they are kidnapped and forced to participate in a death game set up by an anonymous mastermind. Boku No Kamikakushi was brought to life at Nobuhiko Okamoto’s Snack Time event on February 10, where Takuya Eguchi (Loid Forger in Spy×Family) and Kazuki Ura (Isagi Yoichi in Blue Lock) made guest appearances. Okamoto’s fellow voice actors read the manga and brought the characters to life, with Eguchi taking on the role of Haruto and Ura portraying Uzuki. Okamoto expressed his gratitude in his post on X after the event, where he compares Eguchi’s portrayal of Haruto to “the sun,” and Ura’s as “perfect” for Uzuki’s “pure” character.
