Description
Deronga Five Alpha is a dying unstable planet which according to studies, used to be a very lush planet with all kinds of different species. The current state of the planet is a horrifying place where vicious carnivorous creatures fight in the “survival of the fittest.”

Captain Bagures, the leader of the research spacecraft, is a cold and cruel woman who, despite the warnings, unnecessarily sends a military team down to the planet for research. The end result was a catastrophe with the team being slaughtered by the creatures on the planet. The leader of the team, Cannon, vows vengeance on Bagures before seemingly dying.

Jump to 20 years later, a spaceship comes near Deronga Five Alpha to see the end of the planet. As the planet explodes, a foreign object attaches itself onto the spaceship. As nothing can survive a planetary explosion, the crew investigates the object only to find out it is one of the creatures from the planet Deronga. As the story progresses, the creature goes into a rage after seeing Bagures, now an extremely important person in the military, on the monitor screen. Could this creature be Cannon and how do you stop something that can withstand a planetary explosion?

This series is action packed with continuous scenes, no cliffhangers and very little space for much thought other than what you see at first. But then again, it doesn't do a bad job at it! The only problem with this series is that it could've become so much more specially:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the noah's ark-like goal and not really that important but it would be a nice touch if the author would've gone in depth with the experiment and explained a little bit more about the monsters


Wish they could've given a little more room for character development since the feelings of the special soldiers (and I'm not saying anything more specific since it would be spoiling) change drastically and doesn't let the reader appreciate the contrast.

Either way, this series was really fun and I really liked it and I wish it would've become more.

Wasted

Soldier has life wasted by officer, soldier returns to life as monster in search of revenge, action ensues. Sounds like a great action packed story right? It is, but its bungles the execution.

Half the story is actually spent following a pair of random soldiers trying to survive between the monster attacks and a psychotic civilian. The other half of the story is mostly played out via a series of confusing and poorly conveyed action scenes where the military tries to fight off the monster.

Lacking...

Read all 3 volumes a while back. The ideas are interesting but just not carried out very well. The character development is poor and the design for the culture and settings range from cliche to bland. There's really not a lot to say about it, that's why I think the best way to describe it is to say it's 'Lacking'.
