Description
February 23rd, 20XX.
Looking for a job in the famous TV station at Odaiba, college senior Jin Mishima attended the recruitment orientation. Not far away from the station, Nanako Okano, a gothic lolita trying to attend a concert, found out that her friends tricked her about the concert ticket because of jealousy. The two bumped into each other and "reunited" -- they were junior high classmates -- moments before an earthquake of Richter Scale 8.1 turned the island (the entire city, in fact) into ruins.

caution   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

The manga was done really well, the story was above average and the art was excellent for the style used. Starts really good, then it gets a very dark and honestly I didn't look at all the tags and I did not expect for there to be rape in it which is my own fault but if your able to overcome that then it gets better. To summarize the manga starts at the day of the incident and goes a good distance into the future so no worries about it ending half-assed.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
(in the final chapter)

So again my real caution is read the tags so you are prepared what you are getting into. Overall a very good read and will inspire you to think closely about humanity in the face of disaster.

But in page 1080 in the last chapter in the main room of the protagonist house, there is cameo of a painting by the great master Zdzislaw Beksinski,That! that alone gives this manga a rating waaaaay over 10!

the characters are pretty likable, have nice development and by the end they turn to better. the art is appropriate for the theme and the atmosphere. it is informative and quite realistic (though the real earthquake show japanese are relatively calm...). sometimes the pacing is slow but by the end it got exciting and it finish in a good way. a good read.

Over-all Good

I can't say that this is one of my favorite manga series but its a good read all the same. This series seems like it has been researched heavily but in a situation like this, you can probably make up as much as you want. If I had to decide on a weakness, it would be that the main characters are not very interesting. Still good over-all though.

I only figured out how to work irc on my final try a few months ago so I didn't pick up this series until the day viscans released ch45-48 and I spent the many a hour that day reading from chapter 1 til 48. I can assure you that it is consistently great and had a very satisfying end.

Picked this up about a year ago. This is the very first survival manga that I have read, and it was quite informative. It has a nice touch of realism, and can get you thinking about what might happen if a disaster of this proportion takes place.
It's also scary that there's a massive earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan today. Got me into thinking about this manga again. sad

Usamaru must be a big Paul Simon fan; "51 Ways to Save Your Lover" is obviously a clever homage to Paul Simons famous song "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover".

Not a bad story, it's a little contrived and apocalyptic, but so are most disaster tales. I'm enjoying it.

I disagree with Aikanaro. I think the information about earthquakes and its consequences that the mangaka has incorporated are very realistic and enlightening. The plot is so far very good. But then again I haven't read that many survival manga so I don't have anything to compare this to. IMO, it is worthy to read. I actually like the main characters and I'm looking forward to see how they fare... and is that a little dash of romance I see there? Hee.

predictable, stiff.

I read the first two volumes and was unimpressed. It seems very ... 'stiff'. Every event and solution to the problem follows on just as you'd expect it would given the genre, tone, and plot. That can be done elegantly ... but here it's just dropping the tropes you'd expect.

I think I would have preferred it if emo-chan didn't go through her character development. Sure, she was a ridiculous person, but following that stupid-girl-reluctantly-grows-up-due-to-disaster-thing without any variation and just falling into place as you'd expect ... *yawn*.

I dunno. Maybe I should just stop reading survival manga. I imagine if you actually like these tropes or haven't encountered them much you might like it - though I still think it beats you over the head with them a bit.

Also, the 'let's educate the reader about earthquakes' thing annoys me. Show don't tell.

How exactly is this sci-fi again ?
And yeah, lovable characters, superb art, as atmospheric as it is powerful, and good storytelling. I certainly don't see any reason not to read this.
