Feels overated
The mc does aint likable, u cant really relate to him as he is like i am evil because everyone was hiding behind a mask, they were hating me while they put the mask of friendliness. Like bitch, if people are being friendly but dont like you, that doesnt indicate that you should be a shit stain.
Regardless i gave up as soon as i readched volume 2

Eh it has a lot of issues, but I was still entertained. I will say though that the webtoon After school Duty is a more realistic take on 'teenagers having to fight in a warzone' (even despite the fact that that one involves aliens).

It's a really interesting take on war centric mangas

First off, I'm really excited to see Yoko Taro writing a manga series! I honestly think he has a valid view on war and death, which is very realistic. I'm glad to see that his thoughts have made it into this comic and has created a unique story with a female main character and strong female characters in general. While it starts off with a hopeless situation, it /is/ foreshadowed that something might happen to put the actual MC into the foreground within the first few pages. I feel like the male lead is a little tropey, but it's also very refreshing in a way? Because usually you don't see the males being placed in the yandere/pining for love role, which is most definitely on purpose (knowing Yoko Taro's preference of 'gender actually doesn't matter' for main characters).

Anyway, don't listen to the naysayers and definitely check it out! The first 10 chapters or so is kind of a prologue in a way, and showcases a lot of the situation, especially in the early chapters. I honestly can't wait to read more because from a writer's point of view, the characters are very interesting. Mashiro is definitely a great main character, I think, and she shows to be a competent person.

Yet another doom-wanking.

This is an annoying trend on media: they try to milk something for shock value and do a sort of dystopian setting yet they don't think things through.
Turns out there's a set of humans capable of having special powers (yes, it's not really well explained in detail, even though it's been more than a year of serialization) and the japanese government tries to train them and weaponize them? From here onwards the logic of the story will downspiral straight into a cesspool of stupidity.
-They literally send 50 persons to die, unsupported and with faulty intel. The gory details are incredibly good I must say but I always judge a manga by its writing not art. This is pure stupidity as they lack the material to even conduct proper research on that battlefield. It's basically throwing away human resources.
-We get a genki-type commander whom may have been the MC of another story. Don't worry he dies.
-The administration are basically saturday morning cartoon villains, going from molestation, throwing away their valuable resources (they spent a fucking year training those fifty students in a hightly developed school, talk about sending money down the sinker) and going as far as saying: we don't need "selective criteria". This is balls to the wall retarded, this is the JSDF, discipline and a sort of stable profile are a minimum requisite. But this is horror-manga japan, being total assholes and lacking human emotions is widespread.
-The MC is totally unlikeable: the reason he became a monster? Because he had handed everything (read: he forced them to give him everything) and "saw the dark side of people". Newsflash: everyone knows people lie and say bad things, it's called growing up. The fact that he's the worst of the bunch (forcing people to have sex with him is basically rape; he could have saved his senpai but didn't, instead simply told him "behind"; forces someone to commit suicide for simply making a comment with the hopes to help her friend that involved the absence of the FMC... well, the list goes on) is sore thing because we will have to spend the whole story with him. He fucking manipulates emotionally the FMC (which is a character I'm fond of) and is stated to be along her one of the only two characters that will survive.
This is fantasy, reality can go fuck itself, in a story we expect all characters to be given (at least partially their due), the author basically spits on properly written characters and storyline. This is the bad-boy archetype brought to the extreme, he's just a manchild.
The least of offenses goes on. The author certainly should stick with video games as this time his bout to make a manga has been a horrible drivel of pseudo-intelectualism and defeatism on life.

Crazy start. The manga launches you into a truckload of gore in a warzone. Then it kills pretty much 90% of people you think might have a main role in the manga. Then de-escalates to some typical school setting with supernatural powers. So uh... I don't know really.

BUT I like the MC. He's a psycho yandere who's smitten with a chick that has a berzerker mode. Have to love psycho yanderes.

it's good,, handsome male lead , cool female lead.. but why did the male lead in the"cover photo" died? it's seems like the cover photo needs to change with a psychopath bastard and a beast powered female lead? since it's sci-fi and a supernatural genre manga i hope that the handsome male lead could come back to life ... ahaha well i hope that you'll release the new chapter soon <3

Super powered kids being groomed for war

UPDATE 2: I like the characters and the world well enough, but the plot line is just all over the place. Too many new things are just constantly getting thrown at the reader. Nothing is really set up and developed. It is just one new thing after another getting thrown at the characters that they have to deal with if they want to live. The promise of this series being anything good is quickly drying up.

Score: 2 of 5 (20 chapters read) The plot is really in want of a direction. I'll probably check back with the series in a year, but I can't recommend it.


UPDATE 1: Takes a few chapters till you find out who the real MCs are. Apparently they did have one adviser that got killed early in the mission, and them being unprepared planed?(nothing explicit) They do get back to the school and the plot looks to now focus on develop and introduce new characters at the school. The goal/motivations of the outside forces have yet to be really explained to the reader so the characters are really just reacting. There are outlines, but noting clearly laid out. Hope the MCs will get a course of action in the next 10ch because just contently reacting makes a meh story.

Score: 4 of 5 (10 chapters read) still shows promise but I'd like to see the MCs get some direction


ORIGINAL: This series is "accurate" in the effectiveness of tossing teenagers into a war zone (even with their limited special powers). However, it is wholly "inaccurate" in how teens would have been trained prior to being sent into such a combat zone. True they don't totally fall apart, but they in no way give the off the feeling like they have been preped to fight in a combat zone. The fact that no one over 20 is in the group to lead them also makes no strategic sense.

Score: 4 of 5 (3 chapters read)
It's a wild start. It could be interesting or it could be a bloody mess. I would think that by ch 10 or 15 the general direction they are going should be clearer.
Read if you like super powers and lots of violence.
