^^It's licensed in Thailand already but I don't think it'll come over to the west. Check it out guys! This manga is really awesome! Think of it as sport manga meets cosmic horror! It's like Gantz with no awesome weapons or action, just run and hide to survive.

The realistic art is just right for this genre. The awesomeness of how awful looking the monsters are too. I bet the mangaka definitely uses computer generated graphics to make this series since it'd be such a pain to draw it alone.

And you know what!? His 2 early manga before this one are about sport. I want to see the expression of his fans when they discover that the new sport manga just isn't one.

I have no idea. That's why it's mystery genre. But the monsters come up from underground. Some of the monsters are really big, as big as a skyscraper. Some of them are so ridiculously big that their entire body cover a big chunk of a city.

What more awesome is military respond to those monsters though, I have no idea how come they have really large metal walls underground the city to isolate the monsters, the wall as tall as a skyscraper.

The story first seemingly ends at vol. 4 but then continues vol. 5 with another person's perspective. Then the character I thought had died reappear again, but I can't see the main protagonist from the first arc, I hope he survives. I'll really cry if he does not.
