When Hotaru moves into a new apartment alone, thereís a mysterious man standing nearby the apartment. Hotaru decides to confront the man, who turns out to live in the neighbouring apartment. The next day at school, Hotaruís best friend Kanae tells Hotaru that a host tricked her out of her money. When Hotaru goes to confront the host, he happens to be none other than Hotaruís neighbour, Masamune?!

Note: Most of the plot framework, as well as the protagonist, was changed for the main story compared to the original oneshot. The setting remains the same.

Honestly the lines are cheesy, sometimes the art is a little out of proportion, but this author really does a great job of developing each and every one of the characters. Also the genderbent main character is awesome. This manga really does well with incorporating a lot of different interests for a wider audience, so I think everyone should give it a try!! The interaction between characters, the "antagonists" and the action + hints of a romantic subplot really make it a good read! biggrin

Finally, a shounen manga with a decent female lead! For that alone it deserves a ten. Hotaru is funny (especially the way she speaks in Japanese) and holds her own in battle, even saving her comrades on occasion. Take that gender stereotypes! Props to sensei. The art is nice, as well, and the plot concept is fresh. Definitely give this a shot (pun intended).

this manga is totally refreshing.
rather than about a-boy-who-save-world, instead this manga is about survival game which can be very interesting and exciting. and still there's no dead men appeared.
it's totally calming when there're too many manga about apocalypse and dead men and betrayal and corpses and cruelty and chaos and supernatural power and fanservice. and still can be exciting.
it even has a touch of reality. well, even ero-mangaka is depressed right? including host too.
the art is very nice though it's said it was a debut manga. seriously? it's too good. i almost forget that this is actually debut manga because the art is very neat.
and yeah, you don't often see a host and ero-mangaka teaming up in survival games and a girl-in-boys-uniform joins them. and doctors might like survival games too.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
but i've never felt so contradicted like this before. i really wish the heroine were male because.....oh God! she's too cool!!!

This is the first time I've commented LMAO but i have to say i really love this manga!
It's originally a oneshot but it's being remade into two parts.

The story is original, also since it's about survival games which caught my interest fast.
The art is really nice and Matsuoka, Yuuki and Hotaru are all pretty interesting characters.
I definitely recommend everyone to read it!
You don't usually see a host and hentai mangaka teaming up in survival games ahaha
