Real Account



In a world driven by fictionalized friendship, courtesy of the program named "real account", the table suddenly turns, and the cybernetic world turns real! how will they survive?

Kind of a SAO crossed with facebook and a goofy looking monokuma-esque host. Bascially a large amount of people are sucked into a social network and forced to play games where they lose not only do they die but their followers on the network do as well. At the same time, those on the outside world are allowed to unfollow anyone but if someone reaches zero followers then that person dies.

It is a very interesting manga so far with a couple chapters out.

Definitely caught my interest with the first chapter. A good introduction of the MC and sets up the plot nicely. Wonder who the person is who saved him.

Seems like this will be one of those manga where everybody except the MC could die, so better not get attached to any characters just yet. And I forget the name of the artist, but damn, isn't he also working on that Iron maiden manga as well? Does this mean he's putting it on hiatus?

Also, does anyone know if this is weekly or monthly?

i am welling to bet that the girl at the end of chapter 2 was the person who save him. she may have seen how he was going to block off his sister to keep her safe and follow him. also that guy/girl shown on page 40 could be.

just read both chapters and all i can say is that this is great. it caught the truth of online social at it core in such a twisted way. i will be looking out for more chapters.

My theory is that the girl is a stalker who goes as far as change her face to be like his sister so that she can pretend to be the real sister once she gets rid of the real one. Yandere to the Max!

Bump, I'm reading this. I've got an observation that rocked me about this manga. I'm about to share them because nobody mentioned it in this thread.


This manga is about suicide, y'all. No, really. Think about it. This is an Aesop about people who kill themselves over Internet-related incidents. When Marble started killing people and then went into this speech about the ugliness inside of human hearts, I began to realize that the author of this manga was attempting to tell us a story about the people who committed suicide because they felt they were alone.

Haha, it reminds me Ring, and a bunch of other anime that came out in the 80's about people getting killed through television and so on.

I'm not very impressed by the premise or the setting of the manga. Wow, so original. Modern technology is bad. People are crappy. Yeah, is basic thing of philosophy.

Back in Ancient Greece, Diogenes was making the same point that Mr. Marble of Real Account is making about the shallow nature of human beings.

The art is pleasing, however, and the artist sure does know how to draw people dying in gruesome ways. I wonder if they spent some time looking at morgue corpses, or if they went to Medical School for a while.

No, I believe this is a sequel published in a different magazine. The story is basically starting starting from the beginning but this time told from the
Spoiler for part 1 spoiler:
point of view.

Quite frankly, I liked the first part although it was too short. But this does sort of make it more interesting. I'm predicting that this protagonist maybe more ruthless and less moral than the first.

Yeah, I'm super curious about that too.

Anyways, ch 2 is finally translated, kinda predictable that he would get someone to follow him and vice versa. New girl seems ok I guess. But lol at the Fuuka reference.
