Description
In the immediate future, a giant meteorite has collided with earth. All living organisms, including mankind, have been wiped off the face of the planet. The government, who had foreseen this outcome, took measures to counter the worst-case scenario. In particular was Project "7 SEEDS", in which five sets of seven gifted young men and women were carefully selected and placed into teams (Spring, Summer A, Summer B, Autumn and Winter). Each participant was then put under cryogenic sleep in hopes of preserving the continued existence of mankind.
When those men and women awoke, they found themselves suddenly thrust into a cruel world. While bereft and grieved over forever losing their loved ones, they sought to find ways to survive.

Note: Won the 2007 Shogakukan Manga Award for shoujo manga.

no less than a masterpiece...   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

Well I don't usually leave review on public site but I made this exception for 7seeds.
- In general: just finished volume 14, I guess it's far enough to say that this manga is very great.Through out the long run, it keeps getting better and better (which it's rare 'cause lots of series go downhill fast) It's very dramatic at times, but I still found it enjoyable. Tamura did a great job with balance story details, one of the reasons why I like 7seeds more than her previous work, Basara.
- The plot: the idea is novel worthy and stand out in so many ways, even the message 7seeds' carring is very different too. It may started off little slow but it needs time to get details sharpen. Tamura is story-wise master, which she proved by Basara, but I'm still amazed at her knowledge on this one, every little things she wrote has some meanings with it, you must read through carefully or you'll miss it. The humor in 7seeds is very subtle, and charming too.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
My favorite part must be the arc about Dragon King's Palace, a masterpiece in its true meaning that I'll never forget, it just took all your emotions out.

- The characters: good story comes along with good characters, of course. Though it has many characters, they're still be able to stand out in their own personality. btw, the characters connection in 7seeds rules!
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Not all characters are likable but still, you will fall for them.

- The art: not something I really care, but even if you don't like it at first, you'll get used to it though.

My overall rating is 9.5/10, but I may change it in future since it's not going to end anytime soon, and believe me, I'm at volume 14 and still clueless about the ending, way too unpredictable.

Art maybe somewhat of a distaste for some, but it'll grow on you as you read along. Pacing of the story's well done, and its depth in portraying the different characters' background and development on equal allotment are its greatest strength. Read thoroughly and you shall not be disappointed

Best manga

I've read more than thousands of manga and this is the one and only one that touches me as much. The depth and complexity of the story stocked me! Some say that the art work wasn't that great but I think that each character's face and expression delivers exactly how they feel, you can feel their sorrow by looking at their eyes. This is not a romance story from a soap opera or a Cinderella type fairy tale but it is a sincere and logic work.

Even though the story included lots of characters and complicated relationships but it doesn’t affect her ideas and presentation. Each section of the story is cleverly linked together.

I am already reading Vol 12 (of course in chinese) and I would like to included some spoiler for the ones who had waited too long and wants to know where the story is heading but I didn't know how to put it in a spoiler box..

i've been reading manga for nearly almost 8 years now (wow long time) and mangas with a good plot are hard to come by...however, tamura yumi-sensei has never failed me. basara was 5 stars and i'm really enjoying 7 seeds...her ideas are novel and she unfolds the story at a good and steady pace. some ppl don't like the art...but it's really not "that" ugly. it's unique and it starts to grow on you after a while.

now that storm in heaven has picked it up i'm sure the releases will be faster (well at least i hope)

i may take a vol or two to get you hooked but that's cause the storyline can't be thrown in your face that quickly...so just give it a chance

oh and those looking for a typical shoujo manga...this is definitely not it
there is a romantic sub-plot (but it's not the major story)

all in all this manga is awesome...read all 7 scanlated volumes in one sitting smile

I'm currently on vol.6 right now, and I must say I really like this manga a lot. I actually love the artwork , and of course the plotline is superb. But still, the characterization is the hightlight above all, 7seeds has some very unique characters.
I remember when I first read 7seeds, I thought it was too shojo for me, and I don't like the main girl that much (darn! the actual main girl appear in vol.2!!). But follow the story, it gets really good that I'd finished 5 volumes in 1 night.

I say it's a must read, for ppl who wants to read a great manga. Highly recommended! Seriously, ppl who turned down this manga after just few early chapters don't know what they're missing.

Considering the picture BakaUpdates put up for this series... i really didn't want to read it, but reading the comments did help and I started on it...

I must say... its ALOT better than I thought how it would be, at first i thought it was gonna be like battle royale of something but it has gotten way more interesting with the survival and stuff.

The art is good and the story plot is really awesome! It keeps you on edge trying think what will happen next! I didn't want to read it at first because of the horror. But it's not as gruesome as some may think. And this has got me really liking the horror genre! If it wasn't for this, I wouldn't be reading Attack on Titans! <3 Read it you will enjoy it. I can't wait to read the ending of this manga!

This is one of the few manga in recent times that had me forgo sleep in order to read all that is available in English. The story is okay, but what truly shines here are the characters - the inner-struggles they all face and how each one responds differently to the situation they were thrown into. So far it's shaping up to be one of the more memorable manga series in years. [I also LOVE the art, but I've always been a fan of Yumi Tamura's style.]

Scary and Suspenseful

The artwork is rather average, but in a manga with this interesting of a plot, I've managed to forget about that fact.
It doesn't focus on character relationships that are moving too fast. The only "romantic" realationship so far is Hana and Arashi, but they don't know that they're both alive.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
It did seem kinda ... when Team Winter was introduced and all but one were killed off in a single chapter, but it did become a rather decent plot point...
Also, when Team Summer B was split in two, I began to wish the story would get to them sometime, because half of that team became almost non-existant.
People might be commenting that there are too many characters, but there aren't as many as they say. There can be 35 characters maximum, and there isn't that many. (28 characters if you get rid of the dead ones that never became major-major... 21 if you don't count Team Summer A, as they are also non-existant at this point... 17 if you consider that part of Team Summer B haven't appeared in so long... 10 if you remove Team Autumn because they're... youknow... so 10 characters that actually matter at this point...)


But to sum it all up:
Face it: it's a really good manga that is a total must-read. A great horror manga that really has you at the edge of your seat wanting more. The art my not be the best, but before you know it, the art will be forgoten and you'll be so wraped up!

Another super manga   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0
by Yuenchi
July 23rd, 2008, 4:16pm
....A super manga, with artwork close to ugly. Still it's awesome. Sometimes I think only mangaka with unpretty artwork can create the best manga, while perhaps mangaka with pretty artwork don't need to create anything spectacular to gather fans so they don't. Or something like that (with some exceptions, of course). Still I wish 7 Seeds had a better artwork, just to make it perfect.

I've read till vol 9 and I don't want to think about this manga at all because if I do then I can't wait to read the next volumes. And one more thing, there's no way this manga can end happily because well, considering the situations how can any of them be truly happy? That of course if they manage to survive.

I'm not giving a rating higher than 9 only because it's not finished yet. Tamura-sensei with her tamu-tamu time has created a powerful manga, a must read.
