And I'm not even sure why. But the atmosphere is great and the way the author conveys the story has a very realistic feeling to it. There is no real main character but the whole of the class stands in focus. We have interviews of the students between different scenes, where they comment the current situation. It really does add to the atmosphere. I'll give it a 10 for now to push it a little and because I hope it continues this way.

Exceptionally well crafted and thoughtful-- the author is a master of suspense and storytelling! The split perspectives and panels add a sense of realism to the webcomic, and the author can easily CONVEY atmosphere and expression with pictures instead of words. Hence intense moments hit you HARD and are ABSOLUTELY NERVE WRACKING, especially in the 'stop-motion' scenes where events happen in super slow motion and are therefore so agonisingly tense you just may begin to hyperventilate.

Great character development too! You begin to develop a sense of 'kin' with the characters-- they're flawed but human. So be prepared to cry... Or at least, curse and swear under your breath for their poor souls.

Warning: how the hell is this shounen? no happy endings with rainbows and lollipops :/

What do you expect when you throw a bunch of ordinary Korean high schoolers thrown into military combat against mysterious and f*cking DANGEROUS EXPLODY-STABBY PURPLE BLOBS?!

A sea of dark and angst, a beautiful but small ray of friendship, and a crapload of PTSD.

10/10 must read,
- also end scanlation notes are wonderful and helpful! Thanks biggrin

this is one of the greatest survival horror out there. the characters are real.they are normal human beings with quirks and foibles. there are no archetype like in normal manga with super cool jocks or the big busted females - they are just teenagers trying to survive. so you feel for them, they are not puppets to extend the plot = they are living characters.

one thing very weird and peculiar about this is that they do all this for 'extra credit'. man, you gonna die and they bribe you with 'credits?' i dont know whether this is too unrealistic or korean students are that way.

but still, goddamn great webtoon.

This manhwa is a dark one. It shows a very small slice of the nasty stuff that would happen in a real war, except in a post-apocalyptic setting where the invaders are unknown cellular creatures. The feel and atmosphere is very well done and realistic as RoxFlowz describes. It shows the grittiness of war, emotional scars from the fights, and the bonds between the students who, by volunteering, put their lives on the line. You will often times wonder whether or not any of the students will suffer from PTSD. Although its main focus is the trials of a singular class, a dull but brighter light is cast upon two in particular.

Normally I don't read action manga because they make danger look like a boys' ego-fest. This story couldn't be more different. The characters include both boys and girls and they are thrown into a situation where the danger is 100 percent real. There's a preliminary training period (no magic powers here) in which you can get to know the characters and gradually get scared on their behalf. Then it's battle and danger for most of the 51 chapters.

Great pacing, great drawing, great character building, and great battles!

I loved almost all of the characters especially Bora, and I really hoped that they would all make it out. I had so many hopes for them, but as this is an action horror someone had to die, and yes even important characters died. This manga was sad, exciting, funny, and just great overall. The characters were all developed and the plot was awesome and unique. Also, this should have a tragedy tag on it cause I cried my heart out.

This is a rather psycohological series, it doesn't have that much great action or brilliant plot twists. This is a realistic series(with pruple floating exploding balls) which will make you care about the caharacters more than anything. You will feel them. And hate some of them. Find them silly and likeable. Art is alright i guess, not colorful so that you will feel more and more desperate. Any Ha Il Kwon fan should read this.

The best action manhwa

Whoa. I started reading this manhwa in Naver, but the update was too long i have to waited for it come out every friday Dx i love this series, it shows a reality life, how they managed to survive and found myself got addict with this manhwa. In other series, the MC used to be the greatest, or should i say the toughest from everyone else, but this series show a different and unique storyline where the male MC was just an ordinary person who get scared at times and still trying to protect the girl MC, there's absolutely a lot more who is more handsome and cool from him. But that's what i like from this series. This Manhwa mix up my feeling with happy,sad,anxious and also curiosity about the life in war in realistic way. I also found it weird why they have to do it for extra credit. But i thought that maybe most of them doesn't really care with extra credits and join it because they actually curious about the war (me sometimes want to feel how is the war too lol) anyway, this manhwa is worth reading. Looking forward for author's next manhwa, and i hope maybe he can make the sequel of this (with them all already goes to university and then meet up again because of that purple creature with more thrilling stories) wink

I liked the manga alright for various reasons stated before me here : the diverse and compelling crew of characters and their day-to-day interactions, the storytelling that makes measured use of narrative tropes (interviews of the students, splitting the groups), the fact that social commentary is not thrown at the reader's face by idealistic and unrealistic spoken or inner discourse.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
1. the high-school setting (and target audience ?) felt quite forced given the premiss : putting the supposedly trained adults (the parents) in shelters and sending teens to fight, training them on the school ground.

2. I know South Korea has a very competitive educational system, but come on, who's reasonably gonna get butchered for a few credits that may very well be useless in the near future ?

3. I could have used more of the main protagonists being ugly, getting killed or having more edgy behaviours ; it's certainly not as black and white as most action man*as out there, but still it felt like they were a bit too much PTSD-proof.
