can't expect much from a shounen

I think there are many who find this manga unrealistic and contains lotsa cliches. I guess that's just how shounen series are, since they're for teenagers.
Nevertheless Eden no Ori is quite interesting to read, because sometimes it can surprise you; you won't see it coming. But following these last chapters I think the manga is gradually becoming more boring and embarrassing. inappropriate lines in inappropriate times, stupid reactions in life-risking situations, stupid ideology wins the argument, and many more.
well as far as I'm concerned, we can't expect much from a shounen, this is also the reason why I'm more fond of seinen,

Okay, we're pretty far in the story here and while it is blatantly obvious that the airplane was carrying a freakin' dream team of red shirts and conveniently classmates super students. Even Mr. lame-ass-gets-the-girl(s) is a true leader who only shows his true power while outmaneuvering dinosaurs (note: there are no dinosaurs, really). Come on, this is totally a set up. My inner geologists (my parents -lol I ate them) are screaming at me and they're not screaming "Take out the garbage!" because that is my bruders job. I'm screaming "Google did it!" at the moment. Sentient Mushroom Head is just stupid enough to trust google maps.

Plot: Like I said, Google did it. Someone compared this to Lord of the Flies? This is almost nothing like Lord of the Flies and nothing to compare it to. Read a book. I think you'll find everything has been done so really good authors just do it well.

Characters: Nice to be able to remember them. I don't care about them, fine if they die, plot moves on. But I do know who they are/were. which is nice. I wish they would show more of the other group with the hot delinquent and his car keys and quarters... that guy is so cool. I wouldn't mind if it was just them but he is a nice foil. And the leader guy for the big group is cool too for once. Which is why HD is needed in the first place. Having him and leader guy together would draw attention away from leader guy but with no hot delinquent, leader guy would have no one to be better than.

Art: I just finished rereading Zippy Ziggy so I'm like "wth with these LAME reactions?!" Although besides everyone seeming to have facial expressions only for varying states of "I'm concerned~" its really nothing to be concerned~ about. A couple times I have thought to myself "lol, boobs don't work that way." On another note, I practically did backflips when the mangaka got their geology right. So easily pleased.

Btw, I'm bad at names so thats why I call maruma/marima/mikaela Sentient Mushroom Head and others other things. Sorry if there is any confusion. If it makes you feel better, I don't know what I'm talking about either.

I have my reasons. First, characteristically, like everyone said here, there's no way junior high school teenagers would have such excellent physical features such as tremendously big boobs or capable of bare-handedly fighting creatures that are 20 times bigger than their body. They are, mostly, kids. I don't think not even a ferocious, should-be-extremely dangerous giant 'ancient' bear could not kill the main protagonist in every possible way. I can't count how many times the main protagonists have encountered and avoided near-death experience, but I'm sure every count is substantially pointless. The characters are not left out of the shounen border, so the readers would often see many elements of naivety and innocence. Second, putting aside the interesting plot, the author seems rather want to introduce some 'ancient' animals in a more dramatic way by frequently setting up a dire situation in sequence where the animals would corner the characters, they fight back and overcome their fear, charismatically overpowering the enemy. Instead of displaying variety of extinct animals, the author seems only interested in those with life-threatening features such as Sabretooth tiger or Arctodus bear. Although, I found this is the only thing that carries the story in advance. Thirdly, the unnecessary youth-related tendencies like youth romance, extravagant sensual shots or inconsistent behavior and personality, largely contribute to its failure to convince the readers to sympathize with the characters. Looking just how 'lucky' the group is, I can't tell if they're really in some situation or still on vacation.
Interestingly, the advancing story, with addition of mysteries covering the island and theories that make up for most of the revealing truths, is somehow able to make me stick to it for a long time. The naive characters with their optimistic view on the events before their eyes are simply captivating, for I would want to know how they would end up at the end of the day. Personally, I think there would be some sort of twist or unprecedented set-up, although I can instinctively predict what this is all about. But so far, the story has never been dissatisfying enough to make me stop from following. No, it has nothing to do with the ecchi stuff. bigrazz

Its starts Ok, but then goes down hill

This is an ok manga but has some problems. I think its biggest strength is that it has some momentum. The characters have goals and they move towards them. This keeps the story moving forward. However, some of the characters are not very deep and are your cookie cut-out types with many cliched backgrounds.

The art starts off so-so but gets better and more consistent. As a survival story its ok, but could be better. It doesn't quite have the horror level that other stories have. In part this is because its still shounen, and the drama is not quite there. The ecchiness is sometimes just thrown in randomly and detracts from the story line. I mean its a dangerous place, but the girls in this story are constantly taking baths in rivers and streams etc. sometimes by themselves with no weapons. The anatomy of the girls is a bit ridiculous too as most of these characters are supposed to be in junior high (13-15yrs) but they are built like porn stars. Many are ultra-kick butt like the girl who is a nidan (2nd degree black belt) in karate, the delinquent who looks like he's in his 20s and is a genius badass, etc. Yet again many of them are supposed to be in junior high. Meanwhile, the adults come in various assortments such as: dumb, weaker, incompetent, cowardly, murderers or wannabe rapists. We also have some of the female adults that seem to be attracted to these children, which is just bad.

The story also suffers from the common shounen cliches, you know things that we've seen in hundreds of other manga like "must save everybody!" and "must protect my precious friends!" and so on. The male lead is your typical perky hero, who suffers numerous blows to the head which result in no real damage whereas other people in the story become seriously impaired. I guess his head is just harder.

There are some other things that bug me about the story, but I don't want to get too long winded and others have already mentioned some of them. Don't get me wrong the manga is not horrible and can be entertaining, but some of the shounen qualities I think actually drag it down. After reading about 80 chapters I would say it rates about a 7.
<------------------EDIT---------------->
Well I finished it and I have to say that I think it went a bit downhill. The smarter students stand around Akira the main protagonist giving info dumps which was kinda bad. It wasn't necessary to explain every single detail and there just should have been better ways to go about it. We get some lapses in thinking from the mangaka like when our hero leaps down a darkened shaft with no light but he can see the exit and the room he falls into when a few pages before another character was saying how dark it was and they had a flash light. A beastie that was hibernating but should have been dead due to lack of oxygen and other mistakes. More fan service is thrown in, a few plot lines are totally forgotten like the "friend" who was watching them at a distance and we never find out who the masked person is. What happens to those people? Then there is the real big discrepancies like
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
if they are all clones then how did they end up on the plane? Who put them there? Everyone else on the island had been dead for a long time.
So it doesn't make any sense how they ended up there. This is why it feels like the story is a bit incomplete and the ending a bit rushed. All in all disappointing.

i really like this manga because the story and drama is pretty good and there is a lot of interesting characters. and i personally disagree with people who say the arts bad because first of all the art of the animals like the saber tooth lion was really cool and i know the character's art is a little less serious for this serious survival story but thats the defference between Seinen manga and shounen manga cause if it was dark, depressing but amazing art it would more a Seinen manga, and i like the art the way it is cause it gives a less depressing vibe

Each person has their own likes and dislikes, but I rather like it. I know it's the standard to try to compare this with other things and to read it with a judgment already in mind (I assure you, it is NOTHING like Lord of Flies in terms of plot), but it is similar in basis that they are 'stranded on an island', but you'll find you'll enjoy the read if you just take it in as it is and don't form an solid dislike-dislike opinion based on the beginning chapters.

It's an interesting read. Sure, the set-up of romance is fairly common, but guys, that's nothing to turn you off about. It's not the MAIN thing. The main thing has PLOT. And the characters go under character development that a lot of Shounen manga don't have the time to do. The goal is pretty much clear at the beginning: To survive, and get helped/possibly rescued, but it's how they react to seeing extinct creatures and trying to make it out alive that's interesting.

THE ENDING THOUGH.

DID NOT EXPECT IT. Like as soon as we got into realization about what the school was and the picture, I was like--ARE THESE GUYS GHOSTS??? I still don't understand, but definitely was a twist I didn't expect.

sure, the story is kind of cool, but the art does not work with the story at all. And the characters are really simple.

The main character - simple hero
the girl - extremely attractive girl that has features that she should not and is in love with a wimpy main character


the rest of them are just plain boring, they really don't have much dept, no matter how you look at it. Unlike other amazing mangas like "battle royale", the author just can't handle this many characters.

Despite the previous comments from these people, they are but only a small majority of haters. The manga is an amazing manga taking a fast pace and strong viewpoint from characters. Despite being similar to "Lost" as people say, it has its own set of uniqueness and interest that easily blow other manga out of the competition as seen by its obviously high ratings.

The plot is awesome. Especially when they start getting into the information and history of the island, it's almost impossible to guess what this is all about and trust me, you'll be shocked about some of the things. There are so many mysteries and questions about the plot, as well as the characters that keep the manga interesting. Animal fighting? No, this manga isn't only about animal fighting, it's about much more.

Characters, there is a large majority of characters that are given screen time and later not as much. However, that's a given. A lot of characters are still developed and kept interesting with a few questions about them. Though the girls may seem useless, they're not. Both male and female characters have development and change for the best.

The art is good. It takes the typical art style that actually looks really good and the animals look so detailed, as well as the backgrounds.

There is a lot more to the manga than meets the eye. The author doesn't even forget characters he's made without names. It's obvious there's a lot of work and dedication into it and the ratings above also show this. Ignore the minority that says not to read it (I mean, really, one of the people gave it a 1 because they didn't like the heroine... grow up a bit), so... give it a try, most people won't regret it.

This manga has a poor plot, bland characters, a serious lack of realism in what is supossedly a survival story and really embarrassing lines.

It also has lots and lots of fanservice. The manga basically runs on pantyshots.

I won't bother repeating other peeps' criticisms, which pretty much are all spot on. I'll just mention my own pet peeve in this story: if indeed you were to find yourself on a super-ultra dangerous island full of vicious prehistoric animals, one of your first priorities would be weapons - like, say, let's take advantage of all the aluminum or other metals in the plane, as well as fabrics, and let's make some weapons. Instead, here we have one of the hotties as a martial artist, giving wimpy looking kicks to wild animals... Can anyone say CRUNCH? DIE. All of them should die, 'cos they are all prime candidates for the Darwin Awards.
