thought provoking aside from the end

Really nice world settings and moral and philosophical questions through the chapters. Aside from the last 10 or 20, where all it becomes a "oh no, we have more problems of the same type of before" and every time is a rush against the clock that becomes a bit tedious and repetitive.

Charachters that didn't amount to much during the previous 100+ chapters - aside from Natsu that takes like 20 pages to reflect on the fact that now she is improved and finally discovered that her hands have fingers, or that she can breathe or that she can open her eyes and such trivial stuff (in comparison to other characters) - and now they want to preach something important but they way they preach it keeps being pathetic, as they speak from a high horse (like I am doing) without being even able to ride an horse.

If one takes those 10-20 chapters as a side story, the rest is really nice, with a lot of open questions like: what happened to the rest of the shelters? What happened to team winter? How much time passed from the disaster? And so on.

One of many masterpieces authored by Tamura Yumi

If you haven't read it, read it until the end of volume 5. If you don't like it, maybe it's not for you.

For many readers, it may be difficult to get the appeal of this manga due to the slow setup and unusual art style. But, once you understand the appeal, you will get hooked.

While the plot is great, the main appeal of this manga is the character development. The author really knows how to portray such a deep emotion of her characters. The emotions range from love, hatred, spite, guilt, fear of inadequacy, loneliness, etc.

Have Faith in My Review

7 Seeds is a masterpiece. You might think that this is just another manga about apocalypse and action, but this manga is more than that. This manga is about humanity through and through.

The characters are magnificently portrayed by Tamura Yumi that I dare say they were real people and she wrote this manga based on them. Each of the character has their own equally interesting story, thus the narrative is told from multiple characters' point of view. Some of the characters may be not into your liking, however they will grow as you read, eventually you will find yourself sharing the same sentiment as the characters and you will understand why they behave the way they are. They are relatable. I have to say that the character development is exceptional. However, there is no set main character which might be confusing to some.

About the storyline, I am still in awe by how the mangaka managed to wrote something so complex but at the same time is so simple like this. Everything about this manga is well-planned, as if you were reading a historical book or a documentation of real event. Since this manga is a science-fiction, there is a lot of unbelievable stuff at first, but do not drop the book yet, it will all make perfect sense in the end.

I had hoped the mangaka would speed up the story, yet when I reread the manga I realized that there is no part that could be omitted. Many people complained about the art style, but personally, I do not mind it.

I highly recommend 7 Seeds. This manga is deep but not hard to comprehend, perfect for young adult looking for something to read after work.

7 Seeds Review

Stupid dialogue (and translation), ugly art (and scans), boring characters, no end in sight.

I've read about 2 volumes of this trash and it does not get any better. If you can stomach all of the above this is a manga that will keep you busy for a while.

Here's a quote to sum up my feelings:
"Why do I need to do this?"
"Shut up and just do it"

This whole ordeal feels rather uninspired and if what is set-up in the second volume true there's nowhere to advance the story to.

Best Manga I Have Ever Read

I recommend it highly. The more you read, the more it grips you. It will make you laugh and cry and become more invested in it's characters and their survival than you would have thought possible. Genuinely, this is my favorite series of all time, and the Manga I find myself thinking about the most. I can't wait for the Netflix adaptation of this series coming out in a month from the time of me writing this!

I was hesitant to pick this up for a few reasons. I wasn't crazy about Tamura Yumi's art style, I thought it may be too much into the realm of sci-fi for my tastes and I wasn't sure I'd like multiple POVs. Little did I know all the things I thought I wouldn't like about it turned out completely wrong. Firstly, if you're put-off by the artwork, just hang in there. I think Yumi's art gets waaaay better as the series goes on, and I'd some a lot of the men are just downright pretty now!

Secondly, this series has a wonderful blend of action, romance, sci-fi, drama, etc. It's got something for everyone, men and women alike. Romances are usually what draw me into a series, but in this case I'm heavily invested in the plot and the labyrinth of stories that Yumi has magically weaved together. Each character, even minor ones, have some sort of growth or feel fleshed out enough to where you actually care about them (even if you don't necessarily like them). This series wonderfully explores the depth of human relationships and how people grow through experiences.

Lastly, if you pick it up and are immediately put-off by the supposed main character, Natsu, don't be! Natsu is a weak and timid girl who can't think for herself...or at least she starts off that way. Like every other character in this story Natsu grows and now I find her rather endearing. Also, in the second volume you'll find that Natsu isn't the main character at all, she's one of many. Then you'll meet Hana, a feisty tom-boy who is skillful albeit a bit rash in navigating the foreign lands. I've really enjoyed reading multiple POVs in this series and I feel it only adds to the depth and relations of the characters. There are no wasted scenes either. The author does a fantastic job of planning ahead in her story; seemingly meaningless concepts and events that happen early on almost always come back later with great significance.

This is a phenomenal story and I'm sad that it's not completely scanlated yet! There's nothing black and white in 7 Seeds, everyone has the strong points and faults. But you can't help but want them all to survive and succeed in this new world. This series has made me cry several times, but I still love it to pieces. Definitely give it a shot - there's a reason this is an award winning work!

As expected from the author of Basara  
by XileDragon

Another masterpiece by the same author as Basara.

Yumi Tamura has a natural talent to bring the audience into her characters, and the multiple protagonist structure of 7 Seeds helps her explore characterization more than ever before. Her stories are never perfect, and there are times where it drops off in terms of quality, but time and time again she is able to create impact moments that truly make us feel the emotions of the characters. Just want to take a moment to say that the team Winter section was one of the most emotionally captivating parts that I have read in any manga... I still have trouble thinking straight when I recall that part.

Just like Basara, 7 Seeds starts out a bit slow, and it took time for me to get into it (perhaps because I am not part of the targeted audience of Josei genre?). But once again, it managed to draw me in after a few volumes and needless to say, it has been quite an adventure. I will refrain from putting this above Basara before we get to the ending, but given the author's track record, I don't expect to be disappointed.

A highly recommended read for all manga fans. For male readers, look past the Josei artwork and tagline, or the shoujo/female centric point of views, and you will be captivated by a storytelling and characterization masterpiece.

If You THINK you know what a great manga is, this manga will change all perspectives of that being the case!

I have been reading manga for almost 11 years, ever since i was in middle school and found my first manga on the bookshelf in my local library and since then i haven't looked back. But as i got older and especially since going to college i usually get bored or tired of most manga as they seem to follow a certain formula and eventually just become too cliche and boring.

However, if you are one of those long time readers or just simply fed up with most manga on the market, 7 seeds breathe fresh air into my reading experience. I love Yumi Tamura, especially after Basara being one of the first manga i read when i was still new in reading, but she completely knocked me out of the ballpark. the emotions you think you can disconnect while reading is impossible especially once you read the Winter's section.....goodluck with that notion, but its not that....its like reading a manga that is completely set off from any other manga within its genre. You have the romance, supernatural, and post-apocalypse genre before and they eventually follow a formula, but this manga have set itself into something completely unique of its own. It is driven by the characters, where they are telling their story and not where you are guessing what the mangaka was doing or she was forcing to drive these points forward....

Its hard to explain as the amount of love and emotion i feel for this manga can't be put into simple words but i highly, highly, highly recommend as someone who has been tired of most of the manga out on the market and 7seeds gave me hope into start reading manga again when i was on a long, long, long drought. I highly, highly recommend 10/10 isn't enough.

This manga is really something cool, and it has way more dept to it than i first thought, but the fact that
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
hana and her boyfriend arashi haven't reunited yet is getting on my nerves......and now hana is having feelings for that other guy?......well, could be my imagination.......and i refuse to believe hana is dead.........im still waiting for that fated reunion so i doubt the author would go off and kill one of the main heroines
but to top it off, there is always sonething wrong, it adds plot but its still annoying, i just want them to have at least one normal day. T.T
