With the space program attempting to travel to Mars, 21st century scientists were tasked with warming up the planet so that humans could survive on its surface. They came up with an efficient and cost effective plan of sending cockroaches and mold to the surface so that the mold would absorb the sunlight and the insect corpses would serve as a food source for the mold.
It is now the year 2577 and the first manned ship to Mars has landed on the planet and the six crew members are ready for their mission. But what they find are giant mutated humanoid cockroaches with incredible physical strength. The crew members are easily wiped out, but not before sending a transmission back to Earth. Now, humanity will send elite warriors to exterminate the mutated bugs and claim back Mars.

Mutant humanoid cockroachs as enemies with Gantz-level gore and up its character-kill-off plot by a few notches, then you got this manga. Rarely a manga leaves me with such a digusting taste in my mouth.

Rate 7 not because its average (its quite great even though not for everyone's taste), but because its too much for me *__*

I think this manga.. is a must read.. for those who wanted something 'fresh' rather than same old plot no one die.. I'll comeback and kill of you all and that kind of stuff. smile fresh and great plot.. full of puzzles.. read it you won't regret it. 10/10

Read the first 2 chapters and I was like 'dafuq?' It's like those characters were created for the sole purpose to die a horrible death. Like supercyc said, how can anyone get attached with these unexplored extras when they die, like, 2 pages after their first appearance?

But the teaser in chapter 6 seems to give this series a new hope. If the first six chapters are the prequel of the events in the future, I guess it all makes sense that the author had to kill the crews and spare a few.

I have the feeling that this series is going to be legend- wait for it....

this is a great manga, great art style, great delivery.
The thing i hate about it is that almost everyone is dead in the first 2 chapters
Out off an entire crew (2 technically)- of unexplored characters (and a flashback doesn't entirely count), they're all dead like cannon foder in split seconds. how can someone get attached to these characters when it's expected for them to die.

In the 4th chapter something happens that might show that terrible misconceptions about evolution aren't the author's true state of knowledge and

the roaches are creations made the same way as the bugs #2 guys.
At the end of the chapter though it goes back to the way it was, or does it?

Something might have actually helped in the roaches' evolution into what they are now.
Overall: great art, great action, plot starting to unfold. Looks like something between Zetman and Gantz, and near Gantz in my book.

I like the combination of muai thai and locust legs :).

ParafinLove, you were too quick to comment on this bigrazz .

No matter what the story is about, but anything base on cockroaches is deeply disturbing ~_~........... This manga gonna give me nightmares. I wouldn't be surprise later on we see these alien creature have wings and fly which we all know some do.

It bothers me when someone talks about a series based on the first chapter. This series is amazing. The art is awesome and the plot is complex; it leaves you wanting more after every chapter.

The synopsis says it all but then comes the... surprise of the design of the cockroaches. The fact that the crew is sent there to kill them and take the land is the icing on the cake. I like to believe this whole thing was unintentional but eh.

Rating: 1/10 for being funny in a horrible horrible way.
