Superb, Suspenseful, Very Close to Real

I'm an old man who reads manga, and I've been doing it for 5 years. I used to find lots of manga that were of interest to people who have been through a substantial portion of their allotted span, but now they're becoming few and far between. I can't complain. I knew going in that manga was pop fiction mostly aimed at very young people, and I learned pretty quickly that it was also very formulaic.

THIS, on the other hand, has none of these drawbacks. Its about learning to survive in primitive surroundings, and, as an extra added attraction, learning to WANT to survive. Over and above that, there's almost NOTHING DUMB in it. The struggles these characters have to go through to keep from starving on the island are all believable, and some are harrowing. The characters themselves are all very distinct, and some of them also actually think about stuff a lot. What I've seen so far of their equally difficult struggle to WANT to survive makes sense, and involves a lot of very interesting thinking and talking.

In short, these drawn characters seem amazingly like real people. This mangaka has created a brand new concept for a story, told it in a fascinating way so far, and elicited a great deal of sympathy in this reader for his conflicted, and conflict-ridden, characters.

It's a real winner. I recommend it to everyone.

The art isn't spectacular, but that doesn't matter here.
This series is about a group of people who wanted to die and then was put onto a deserted island with no laws or rules. Personally, I think it's very good and it touches a lot of sensitive emotions.
Even though everyone wanted to die they end up fighting to live.
It teaches you about the simple beauties of life and what it actually means to live.

Now that theyre trying with all their might to survive. And our main hero is slowly gathering some intel on the real reasons behind this island. I've gotten really interested in this series even though I found it creepy with the first few chapters.

I think Illuminati manga will be releasing volume 3 pretty soon which I think is between now and 2 months. So I'm looking forward to more

Although the author often does excessive info dumps in the narration, I found them acceptable since most of the info has to do with survival wilderness basics and was pretty interesting to a suburb citizen like me who wants to eventually do some serious outdoor hunting/hiking eventually.

This being a suicide manga and with me having little thought of suicide myself, I was somewhat disconnected with the characters a bit. The main lead had issues that he kept repeating to himself quite often. BUT I felt the main character does progress through his hurdles at an enjoyable pace as well as many of the supporting cast being given time to develop as well.

The themes of the story, although some very serious in topic, are presented in an enjoyable format that let me keep reading all the way until the I reached the last available chapter (60). The supporting cast and their back stories also interesting enough to keep me reading.

Die or live?

People there can choose whether if they want to die or to live one more time. They've tried to commit suicide one or several times in the past but still alive. Now they all gather here in the deserted island, they already known as dead in the government record, noone will care for them anymore, they have to care for themselves.
This manga is still on-going, so nothing much to say but I still have a possitive thought that this is one of the government's treatment for them since normal method didn't work.

this is such an awesome story and it really is. We have seen and read many manga about survival but this is different. It's a survival of the suicidos. It's ironic;however, because of that, the story is much much more interesting than the other. Why it interestes , you ask? Read the manga and you will get your answer!

The manga also provides a lot of the protagonist's thought which is very meaningful and encouraging to us, the readers.

Truly a masterpiece! I wish some groups will start to translate it again since Red Hawk has dropped it. Perhaps they have not dropped but it has been a long time (+250 days ) of the last chapter.. Kind of sad

I don't know if this is a good or bad thing, but reading this manga gets me really pumped up... and I have an urge to scream or shout to relieve the angst building in me. I think it's because I get so excited I start anticipating the next chapter before I've even finished the previous chapter.

Anyhow, this manga really caught my attention, and I love how they go into detail about the survival techniques and necessities! The brilliant suicidal leader and the main character are portrayed pretty realistically---and they are so badass! I love the character relationships and jobs in this manga!

Now that i'm waiting for the next chapter to be scanlated, i'm searching for other survival island manga stuff. biggrin biggrin biggrin

A simple thank you in this manga made me tear up. I felt like a fool for doing so, but I could not deny the effect it had on me. Some may be disturbed in the first couple of chapters, but please continue reading, they are just humans

Great plot. The protagonist's growth is believable and interesting. There is also an exploration on society building and justice. There's a few disturbing scenes but all in all people are good to each other. The only problem I'd add is that the art is not as good as it can be, but it's still good. One of the best survival manga out there.
