The mangaka is such a tease. 7 chapters in and the main female lead only shows up for like 3 pages. Although, those were some nice 3 pages =D

I love how the covers are mimicking a xbox 360 game. I guess the mangaka is one of the few 360 fans.

I almost didn't read it because you compared it to Gantz >.<

It has similar elements, but I'd say this is MUCH better in terms of storytelling, and is more interesting.

Feels like a mix of gantz and elements from bomberman still a fun read

It definitely has the Gantz and Battle Royale kind of atmosphere to it. I love survival stories so I'll follow this for sure.

It's a nice Battle Royale-type manga, many clichés from the genre though, btw it seems that the author plays a lot of FPS since the in-game costumes of characters look like Halo armors, the enviroment look like Modern Warfare and the whole bomb thing like bomberman(even if this last one is not a fps), but the manga has managed to mix all this elements and make it interesting...
