Finally, a shounen manga with a decent female lead! For that alone it deserves a ten. Hotaru is funny (especially the way she speaks in Japanese) and holds her own in battle, even saving her comrades on occasion. Take that gender stereotypes! Props to sensei. The art is nice, as well, and the plot concept is fresh. Definitely give this a shot (pun intended).

this manga is totally refreshing.
rather than about a-boy-who-save-world, instead this manga is about survival game which can be very interesting and exciting. and still there's no dead men appeared.
it's totally calming when there're too many manga about apocalypse and dead men and betrayal and corpses and cruelty and chaos and supernatural power and fanservice. and still can be exciting.
it even has a touch of reality. well, even ero-mangaka is depressed right? including host too.
the art is very nice though it's said it was a debut manga. seriously? it's too good. i almost forget that this is actually debut manga because the art is very neat.
and yeah, you don't often see a host and ero-mangaka teaming up in survival games and a girl-in-boys-uniform joins them. and doctors might like survival games too.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
but i've never felt so contradicted like this before. i really wish the heroine were male because.....oh God! she's too cool!!!

This is the first time I've commented LMAO but i have to say i really love this manga!
It's originally a oneshot but it's being remade into two parts.

The story is original, also since it's about survival games which caught my interest fast.
The art is really nice and Matsuoka, Yuuki and Hotaru are all pretty interesting characters.
I definitely recommend everyone to read it!
You don't usually see a host and hentai mangaka teaming up in survival games ahaha
