Treating non-successful suicidal patients requires a lot of money and resources. With low budget and a personal respect argumentation, a doctor will ask a non-successful suicidal patient if he/she still wants to live on or not. If not the government will respect his/her wish. However, the government doesn't just simply kill them.

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.

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

I've gotten through volume 4 and at first i was a little skeptical about this. The main character and the rest get dropped off (how nobody knows) on a random island and watch while people die, then freaking out. They all tried to kill themselves before and know they're afraid of dead bodies, wimps. Anyway i like how Sei goes from being kind of in the back, he doesn't really think he's all that good at anything. To taking down a deer, and getting a hunting dog. He's pretty realistic as a character so i love that, and it depicts what a lot of suicdes are like. I mean he just doesn't know what the heck he's there for but on the island he figures it out. Ryou was a little odd to me at first, he was all into surviving and for a suicidal person that's a bit strange but then you figure it out and it makes sense. Kei still confuses me but hopefully we'll get to know why soon. The one thing that irkes me about this is what they hell that girls name is, four volumes and nothing, come on she has to have a name, sense she in the romantic intrest to the main character. We can't have him falling for some nameless chick.

All in all i have to rate this a 9, hoping it gets way better. smile

Great survival manga

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.

i thought it would be a depressing manga, given the title. But its not, and ever since i read "my side of the mountain" ive been in love wit living close to nature types of stories. It really makes me thing y im alive and be thankful for it. I'm sure that everyone has once thought of killing themselves, and so yea....really good manga. The art kept me away from it for awhile tho

Once again, Mouri Kouji teaches while he entertains! A story driven educational guide to survival is one thing Jisatsutou conveys to its readers other than the deep psychological aspect. Who has the will to live? Who has no will to die? Such thematic questions sprout more questions along this excellent read!

The best series of Mori Kouji

I really like all of Mori Kouji's work but this one stand at the top it even surpassed holyland
it's one of the most realistic survival manga.
in other survival mangas, authors forget about basic survival (gatheric and hunting for food) and focus solely on fighting other humans
and lets not forgot about the most essential fight for survival. "The inner struggle"

Great manga, with certain drawbacks   
Rating: N/A

Quite frankly... the art sucks. The face is wayyy too damn large. The anatomy is weird. The faces aren't all that good either, or rather, they're bad. The art's a huge drawback to this manga, and honestly a waste.

The story in comparison isn't that bad at all! As expected for a seinen, it's nothing of those cliche shonens. May not be the only one, but still original enough.

The one thing though, although this might not be a negative point, it still bothered me alot to the point I was close to dropping this. I don't like the fact that they show the animals getting cut up. Of course, this isn't necessary bad, he needs it to live so not animal torture either... it's just... I don't like seeing cut off deer heads and intestines and all those meat details ><. I'm born vegetarian, partially cause of family religion but mostly because I'd sooner eat a human than kill an animal. I squint whenever he cuts that deer's belly open ><|||.

All in all, it's a huge waste that the art isn't even to an average point. The art is near unbearable... But otherwise a great series and definitely worth the read.

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.
