I'm reading it, but because there basically seems to be no rules and the power difference seems to be so big between the characters and 'god', it's hard to get that excited about it. Part of reading these kind of manga (Gantz, Battle Royale, etc) is trying to see the characters overcome the rules imposed by the system, but here it seems like whatever they do they're just dancing around for 'god's entertainment anyways. The other thing is, in the previous manga I mentioned there's a lot more attention paid to the characters, we get to see how people respond to their situation, and whether they develop into heroes or crack. The characters also last much longer so you get attached to them before they get offed. The cast just switches way too quickly in this manga so you don't really get attached, and the main character has PLOT armor too so you know he's not going to bite it.
