If I look at this story overall I really enjoyed reading it. I'm personally not affected by "plot" in manga, I feel that sometimes it's a good break in between all the death an agony of many chapters so yeah this manga has some echhi to it but not enough to destroy the whole story. I do warn though the ending leaves a lot for you to wonder, and it was the only thing keeping me from giving this series a 10

The plot was okay overall, but the characters were quite...undeveloped. Like how everyone stayed the same in the end-the once untouchable genius opens up to his friends, the main character (aka the hero) saves everyone by his righteousness, his childhood friend who's head over heels with him, and the school delinquent who turns out to be a kind person. Everyone is the same throughout the whole story-and considering that this has 185 chapters (to the dot), the only thing that really changed was the plot. Or more like, what happens.

As one review said, the technology doesn't add up. Not only that, the timing, and the bodies, too. At Memorial M, why are the traps all around? And if it's a grave, why are there 2 Chimeras? Graves are usually made, and preserved, with a certain degree of respect. Having 2 Chimeras at the bottom of the grave...ain't the best way to show respect. The bodies in the School, too. Why would there be a virus which attacks people (and a robot, too) lurking in a container, having already killed off goodness knows how many people? In the end, the use of the School wasn't explained. In fact, it only served to show that they were in the future. And why does the School prevent the animals from entering? Shouldn't that be used on the other places, too? And what's with all the bodies everywhere? There was no indication as to what killed them, or at least none that I could tell. Also, what do they mean the Sensei could probably figure it out? He wasn't dead, was he? O.o And...if they were already dead...why could they die again...though sometimes, they deserved it.

But it was also good, in a sense. (Excluding all the eechi parts. Sometimes, it was overdone, even for eechi. But that's what I think.) How there was different 'tribes', and the different weird titbits of knowledge added in (like the smallest country in the world, or how those at the Research Center (or Pyramid) were being controlled by the Whistle Blowing and all) was quite interesting.

Overall, it was average. Kinda...stereotypical though. Pushed this manga away for ages, thought it was another boring survival manga. The distopia of it all, and the extinct animals in the future-kami.

And I just realized...the students might not have made it back, according to a time chart. The mom died approx. 40 years after the students died right? According to them, the spent 3 years (right after they realized they were in the future or somesort) and a few months before that (let's say 1 year max). So in total, 4 years on the island. So why did the mom not see her son again? Just wondering, not sure if it's true...

This manga was like a crudely combined rip-off of Jurassic Park, Lord of the Flies, sudden space distortion, and boobs. And that was NOT a compliment.

It's kinda sad that I guessed the absurd ending from the first 10 chapters..... I waved away the idea thinking that it would be far too cliche and that the author would know better than to pull such a "twist" on us... but NO, THE DREADED ENDING CAME ANYWAYS. -_-

Well, the disappointment aside, too much fan service for a girl like me, who honestly just wanted a good manga with deep plot. I guessed I expected too much. Jurassic Park suits my tastes more....

Seriously though, the manga had 0 character development. It was nonexistent. No joke. In fact, there were some pretty cliche main characters:
- delinquent hero w/ most popular goody-two-shoe girl as girlfriend, and random typical harem girls.
- top nerd dude w/ his genius computer
- perfect-at-everything cool-headed dude, who is also tall (superrrr cliche)
- Warped popular kid (seen too many already in 2D, jocks aren't all that bad y'know.)
- Cute young girl as part of the harem. (She's actually the only person not quite so cliche, y'll see why...)
- bunch of perverted children let loose on an island. ----> many panty flashes!!!

The villains were also kinda lame...... Yeah. Lame.
__________________________________________________________________ __

I aguess the manga was just able to piss me off because it had a combination of everything I didn't like.....

Nonetheless, it had some good moments too. (But they were overshadowed by stupid mistakes, fanservice, and "oh Sengoku is our hero" crap.)

I won't comment about how the ending was rushed or anything, but just from reading the series very early on I could already guess at the ending... This so called 'plot twist.' There was a second possible conclusion which was presented later on also, but honestly it didn't have enough evidence to support it. The only thing I'll add about the ending is it doesn't answer too much, and if the mangaka had more talent he would have accomplished a lot more despite it being rushed. I am glad I didn't expect much from it based on the previous chapters (honestly I wasn't expecting much from beginning to end) but it was a nice break from the standard more 'mainstream' things which can be found anywhere.

In short, it wasn't anything original and was very predictable (in my opinion), but it is a nice break the usual Shounen you find everywhere.

The idea was great but there are too much "sengoku-kun is our leader" or "akira is our saviour"
and what's up with the "pose" when mariya talking he always touch his glasses, when that "trap boy" talking he always flick his hair. so annoying

my conclusion at the ending is something like this..
warning: if you haven't reach 150++ or completed reading this manga, please don't read the spoiler, cause i don't really like to spoil anything, manga means to be read and look..
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the plane, 2307, should have been crash that exact coordinate and time and can be found later at the sea, with all the passengers, including ca, co/pilot, maybe, have died. all of that would happen if the Eden Project didn't exist.
Because they finished (or maybe half or 1/3 finished) the Eden Project, instead just crashing and all of them died, they get sent forward into the future. (100 or more years), so that they could get so that they could do 'some trial' whether or not they survive.

there is also a probability something like this..

all of the experiments with the extinct animal, is so that they could make their clone.. but i would like to deny it, cause at chapter 184 explain that the revival of extinct animal is her grandpa's wish

the ending is kind of sad, cause most of them won't be able to meet all of their family they left at japan,,(well there is 'Tragedy' tag for this manga), but absolutely not a cheap one, just kinda,, in a rush, but enough hints

At first glance, it reminds me of Jurassic park. And they are very really similar (frustrating).
The ending is certaining a twist I did NOT anticipate.
This manga is quite long, 185 chapters I think. For me, it required some patient because I could more or less guess what was going to happen every other page.
I was not interested in the ecchi aspect of it (not that graphic), but the action and the adventure part of it. And there was not enough of those for me to rate this an 8 or above. It has some exciting parts to it, though.

Having read all of it, I have to say that even though the journey reading it wasn't all that great, the ending was surprisingly satisfying. Like some others say, this manga could have been even longer if they had taken that twist at the end further (ie include the real world).

After reading a few chapters, I had the impression that this is a remake of another popular manga. Turns out, I was right.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Take Drifting Classroom, add lots of fan service, romance, great art works and a wonderful new manga is created.
-the delinquent hero.
-the childhood girlfriend.
-the top nerd.

In the very first chapter, we see that the plane pass through a blackhole as the sky disappeared. A coin was flipped in to the air and one by one the people started disappearing. At first, I thought the plane had cracked in half. But we later see that the plane was in whole. So how did Sengoku ended up outside the plane? Most likely, Sengoku was running towards Rion, and the movement caused displacements which thrown him outside the plane while it was passing though the blackhole and he somehow landed safely on the ground.

The ending was not unresolved, it was just not well thought out.
-Hades was a minor character, so he just didn't matter.
-They found a security robot, why didn't they take a look at the videos in the HDD. And that's not even how to crack an encrypted HDD!
-Why doesn't the animals attack the school? If they had that kind of technology, why didn't they use that on the Antennas instead of using traps?
-Buildings do not fall down after just 100 years and we know the director was not cheap on cash!
-We know that there are no lands surrounding the island and the virus immobilizes the victims 1 hour after infection. So it's not likly it made it off the island. Plus, someone would have fallen into the sea, and the salt water would have cured them. Or that someone would have figured out the cure, so it's not likely the human race is wiped out.
-They spent 3 years building a Huge boat to house everyone. Just get off the island and go bring back help!!

All in all, the whole time while reading this, my mind was screeming, "You dumb ass, why didn't you do this or that!!!" Maybe the author was trying to educate readers what not to do, but really, the author should have just put in a Mr. smarty pants character. There is too much characters and not enough screen time for them. I hated how the author wasted frames to explain simple terms like photosynthesis and DNA which made the main character/readers seem dumb. Yet the battle tactics they employed are retarded at best. They serve as harbingers for more disaster to come.

Sadly, it seems that this manga was axed and there wasn't enough time to tie up all the loose ends. So many questions left unanswered. Even ignoring some of the minor-ish plot holes like
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The tech on the island wasn't nearly as advanced as it was supposed to be, considering that at least 50(more like a 100, 40-50 for the project, and another 40-50 for the facilities to decay) years have passed since the plane disappeared. Although, I think it was intentional. Otherwise it would've been a serious giveaway.

Judging from the hints in the plot, the big picture ending was as intended. Although some of the questions remain...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Clones or time travel? Clones are unlikely because they retained all the memories. Time travel is contradictory because the plane somehow landed. Was the island aimed for the plane? If so, why was it kind of like a cemetery for the passengers and not a welcoming party?
"They were already dead" theory I don't like.
Hades? Probably crazy student... Who knows?
The outbreak? And the island was just abandoned?
Is the outside world already dead?

Only read if you can stomach the mostly unresolved ending. Otherwise it's great.

Nishikiori killed this manga. His ark was bad and, probably, killed the ratings.
