At Grace Field House, life couldn't be better for the orphans! Though they have no parents, together with the other kids and a kind "Mama" who cares for them, they form one big, happy family. No child is ever overlooked, especially since they are all adopted by the age of 12. Their daily lives involve rigorous tests, but afterwards, they are allowed to play outside.

There is only one rule they must obey: do not leave the orphanage. But one day, two top-scoring orphans, Emma and Norman, venture past the gate and unearth the horrifying reality behind their entire existence: they are all livestock, and their orphanage is a farm to cultivate food for a mysterious race of demons. With only a few months left to pull off an escape plan, the children must somehow change their predetermined fate.

The setting of the manga is established in first chapter itself. And after reading one chapter I knew this series is going to be great. So, try the first chapter atleast to witness the magnificent art and gorgeous color pages. Its extremely fast paced and intense throughout. With each passing chapter there are new developments, plot twists, mind games and subtle character development. There has never been a dull moment in the 43 chapters I have read so far.

A dark, thrilling manga. The beginning seems a little cliche, but as you go on you can't stop reading. It's crazy how so far (chapter 34) there's no filler, no unnecessary scenes, every chapter is very rich, strong, and will leave you hanging. Even by chapter 7 I've came up with so many theories! The author knows how to deliver a story, and there are unexpected, brilliant plot twists every now and then. Don't worry though, it's not the tiring and absurd type of plot twists! It'll make you excited and come up with new theories!

Each time it updates I stop everything I do to read it.
It's becoming more and more interesting as the story unfolds. I can't get bored of it. This is oh so well written each chapter's cliffhanger is killing me.
Honestly I don't have enough praises for this manga... One thing for sure : don't pass it up !!!

You know I like this kind of dark and depressing stuff, but GOD why did it have to be so cute in the beginning?? It was obvious something terrible was going to happen eventually, but the reveal was s o much worse than I expected. Damn author is just cruel. And that was just the first chapter. I could barely bring myself to look at, much less draw a dead loli. Time to cry myself to sleep.

It's still too early to comment on the story. It looks promising and even though the concept of "demons raising young kids like livestock, then eat them" may not seem appropriate for a magazine like Weekly Shounen Jump, so far there was only one gruesome scene; most of these chapters simply show the 3 main characters making plans to escape this fate. If you want to start this series, wait until more chapters are out.

Speaking for myself, but seeing the cover picture was an obvious hint that it was a bit dark with the numbers printed onto their necks despite the happy colors on the first few pages. The first chapter was pretty much interesting because you'd think what am I suppose to expect? But in a sense, you have a similar Owari no Seraph introduction cliche, jailbreak right at the end with an interesting change and a somewhat HxH sense in terms of trying to outwit each other.

The characters with where I've read being only 6 chapters so far doesn't give any good solid ideal review yet but it's a good series for being only as the introduction so far, the characters fit to their ideal impression and trait.

After continuing with more chapters, I have to say up to date of where I'm at presently (ch. 32), there isn't a chapter that had let me down. I've been hyped one chapter after another, my brain is always rattling up a new theory or ideas. It's really an intense series where you can't EVER predict what will happen at all. This is beyond worth it, this is a golden series for myself, I can't wait to be able to buy it in English one day.

that threw me off 180 degrees, judging by the cover i thought it was just ganna be a light shounen/shoujo adventure manga about chasing dreams with struggles and trials, then out of nowhere *SPOILER* i see a container that holds a dead little girl to be used as meat product, and im just like reading the chapters with a (@.@) expression. the darkness scale of this manga definetely tops battle royale and hunterxhunter put together. interesting story though, its only slightly cliched, i could clearly see theres a heavy basis on some popular novels, and other stories, but still some great storytelling, art, and characters

A promising start, presenting some of plot twists at the beginning.
After reading the first chapter, from the plot, it seems too predictable.
First chapter alone could explain how the ending of story.
It's like read Gantz combined with SNK.
Where humans had always been victims and weak creatures as the lowest point of the food chain from the stronger creature which comes from nowhere.
Then comes the heroes who tried to stop this 'something undue happened'.
and then WHY? Why this is happening?
*a little spoiler* the 'First Blood' was a loli, a dear little sister ;(
interesting, isn't it? biggrin
