This manga gives me mixed feelings, for one part i despise bullying with all my heart and the fact that because of his suicide other people have to suffer (good people to boot) is very unfair.

But on the other hand we see how Makoto struggles (and grows quite a lot) to save these six people, and that made me like him and the manga. Which is why i recommend it, don't let its low rating discourage you and judge it for yourself.

Although only 8 chaps are not enough to rate this manga quality, i'm hoping for an interesting development which won't make me rage much (a bit it's acceptable).

Originally I thought the manga was really dark, has gore in it or the protagonist turns dark at the end. or some sort of revenge but i was wrong, the manga gives a really good example of what lifes like being bullied and it reminded me of what happened to me when i was young.

this is actually a story where the MC becomes the good guy at the end and start to learn the meaningful of life. alot of people might dropped this at around chapter 20 or so but it does gets better later on until the final chapter. Endless time travel and loops is also pretty interesting

was not disappointed at all even after reading the last chapter. was so worth it. too bad there are only 5 chapters available in english, hopefully someone picks this up soon in the future

When I started reading this manga what I was hoping for was bloodshed,carnage some sadistic turnover for the MC and here I am disappointed at what I read.I was hoping for retribution and what I got was nothing.Just plain disappointing and towards the end of case 1 they try to make the girl bully as a victim so I just dropped this.No retribution for the the bullies except some minor shunning by classmates and thats it.I personally love more of carnage kinda scenario with the MC going batshit crazy.I don't like saints so this one was not my cup of tea.

Read the raws up to ch 19.
There is a large group of boys that are really sadistic in the way they torment the MC. Seriously they have no problem maiming or killing people. The leader of the Bully's is a handsome popular student whom his peers and teachers take the side of, usually through his manipulation.
most of the souls the MC tries to save are people that have tried to help the MC.
As for the others: his father is taking out his frustrations on him and then there's his crush/gf of the bully. I dislike how they are trying to portray her as a victim now. Firstly she is secretly one of the instigators of the MC's bullying while she pretends to be nice to the MC so he doesn't commit suicide. Then she violently attacks the 2 girls that stand up for the MC. Now that her true nature is exposed to the rest of the class, she is being shunned by her peers including her bully bf. Now that she is on the receiving end, we are supposed to feel sorry for her WTF.
