High-school girl Yuri suddenly finds herself on the rooftop of a high-rise building. She's trapped in a bizarre world surrounded by skyscrapers, where a masked man cracked open a man's head with an axe before her eyes. Finding a way to survive this bizarre world, find her beloved brother, and escape becomes her top priority, but she is beset by danger not just from the mysterious Masks, which possess both inhuman strength and cruelty, but other survivors turned cruel or desparate by the insanity of the high-rise world.

Not my thing

After 20 chapters with no content whatsoever and having the manga trying to create an impact with all ridiculous kinds of deaths and senseless behaviours of the "normal" guys I can say this is not my thing and this is nothing but crap in my book. I can stand gore, killing and some wickedness but if it has a purpose, 20 should have been enough to give the reader something and there is nothing at all, not something tolerable in my view.

I Like the Fanservice, but can't follow the story

It's all over my head! I suspect this story is related to some genre or other of videogames, and for those who play video games, it's easy to follow the story. I'm not one of those.

Also the translation is poor. Must have been done by someone for whom English is a second or third language. I find it irritating.

Not well suited to me, 'cept for the good drawing, some of which is a little bit sexy occasionally. This thing is obviously aimed at boys and young men, so of course it would provide some stuff they like—that is, fanservice.

No Satisfaction

The chapters are short and do not leave the reader with any real satisfaction because so little happens. There's also a lot of unnecessary dialogue that blatantly says what is about to happen ("Wait! Is he going to bla bla bla?" Then bla bla bla happens).

The pacing is good at first, but starts to become repetitive with each chapter. The plot is overly contrived. Character development is rushed and bizarre.

Making the MC's so overpowered and capable right from the start was a bad idea. You don't really feel as invested in their survival.

At first I was bias towards the volume cover and thinking "meh". After seeing its updates here and there frequently, I was already curious. Then after realizing it was done by the author of Ajin, I thought "why the heck not?", boy it was worth it.

With experience and being used to slow pace along the repetitive sensation and the given genre, I gave my patience to see through the plot and "plot" (lol).

Yuri's relation to others especially Sniper Mask and her brother were however my main focus. There's a lot of subtle hints so it was entertaining trying to piece things up.

Despite some unnecessary fanservice (and censors [from scanlators?] depending how you've read it, it's more hilarious lol) it wasn't that bad. Not to mention using "masks" as a theme of abilities and powers is pretty catchy, and interesting for me.

It's a fun series more than I've expected in a nutshell.

This manga was really good-the chapters were so short though, I didn't realize I had read through 50+ chapters. I like the plot development, and how Yuri adapts so quickly to it.

Or rather, too quickly. I have a sneaking suspicion that she has the amazing hidden abilities of a killer-somewhat like Nagisa from Assassination Classroom, but she's more...determined. Though, Yuri does have a certain sense that screams 'killer' in her.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I like how, in the end, Yuri and her friend (forgot the name already, lol) made a team-they're already pretty close, too. Her brother, on the other hand, is kinda...well, he's something like Yuri in terms of determination and killing instincts, but he's also really smart.

The masks, too, were amusing. The smiling ones with cracks are to be killed, and even within the smiling ones, there are different types, including blood thirsty types and just plain mad types. Then the neutrals (the shy, geek type was a little too much, wasn't it = =) and the angry masks. The angry ones are most probably my favourite type XD

The girl with Sniper was suspicious, though. Her being God without her knowing, her behaviour when giving Sniper her phone...I hope Sniper finds out why she's God and what it means, soon. What's weird is that I expect her to lash out and kill Sniper suddenly cuz his mask's cracked. The tension's going to be pretty high, soon! <3

The manga is a really good read, though. A little blood (okay some people may find this an understatement, though the gore isn't family-friendly), random titbits of knowledge...amazing potential, I hope they update soon! biggrin

I should have waited until it was done. The chapters are pretty short, even shorter than weekly manga, and information is given very little at a time. I really want to know why she's there, what's up with that 'world', who's running it and why, etc etc.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Yuri suddenly finds herself in a room with a dead man and an axe-wielding killer straight out of a horror movie. There's no exit going down, so she has no choice but to run to the rooftop where she realizes she's not even in Tokyo anymore but somewhere that's full of skyscrapers. There's nobody else there except for her and the killer, though she manages to contact her brother who gives her some information about the 'world' they're in. Determined to reunite with her brother, Yuri crosses rope bridges that connect one skyscraper to another. But it's not only the height that she has to worry about.

Yuri is pretty much an average person, making it easy to sympathize with her. Fortunately she's still got her wits with her, and like in a video game she (mostly) picks up what she could and should. This story is kinda like an inverse of a zombie apocalypse-- it's more dangerous to be above ground, and there are very few enemies and she mostly faces them one by one but boy are they dangerous. Despite being set in broad daylight it doesn't take away the feeling of dread of what danger Yuri could possibly face.

The art is pretty nice, and I like how the killers' masks are that eerie smiley face. I rated it 9/10 only because the panty-shots and fanservice are kinda annoying. Of course it's very easy to give an excuse for it as she's wearing a school uniform skirt and she's running around and crossing rope bridges from one skyscraper rooftop to another, but it's like the mangaka is going out of his or her way to put in fanservice. Oh well.

When it's finished I hope it gets an anime series (with lesser fanservice shots).
