Ryu stows away on a space vessel, only to be found by the crew when it's far to late to return to earth. So they stick him in a spare sleep capsule instead. Things take a turn for the unexpected, however, when Ryu wakes up to find himself the sole survivor of the expedition, the spaceship having crash landed on a grossly mutated and wholly unfamiliar Earth. Joining forces with fellow survivors from a different crash, Ryu and his comrades fight to survive on this new and deadly Earth as they search for any humans that might've made it through the mysterious apocalypse.

An underappreciated gem

Bluntly, The Way of Ryu is one of the best science-fiction manga made to date. Shotaro Ishinomori was a genius artist and this is one of his very best works. Although it is misunderstood by many, and respectively underrated. Back in 1969, no manga artist had done anything like this before. The story, while seemingly simple, is profound. Sequentially, several forms of civilization, futuristic cities, strange objects and mysterious life-forms are discovered and basically trigger certain events integral to the manga. What are they? Where did they come from? What do they do? These are all questions one asks oneself while reading the story develop. The end result is quite chilling. Very highly recommended.

First of all, description does a bad job conveying what Ryuu no Michi is about. I didn't expect anything from the series besides maybe a silly adventure, literally what the manga title said, but it turned out being completely different.

Postapocalyptic world serves just as a tool for author to express his beliefs regarding human present and future. I won't spoil the details, but you should expect all the usual themes a typical "aware" post-war person would probably come up with, poured over the reader with ever increasing pace.

Personally, I prefer my manga to not seethe with author's opinion so much, especially when it borderlines with populist rhetorics backed solely by emotion. The title won't get into my favorites list, but it certainly was interesting enough to observe how person from forty years ago would imagine the future and what affected his opinions.

As the title suggests.... What did i just read confused !?!!!?

The story was almost invisible, and the characters didn't have much depth imo. The only reason i continued reading is i liked the art work.

If you are going to read this for a story, just stop. The manga IS Interesting, but there isnt really a storyline besides "stuff happens, and it will continue to happen"

Totally gives you that feeling of adventure and mysticism. It's like evolution has gone out of whack with all the creatures we see in this manga. I really recommend it because it has some themes we hardly see anywhere else.
