February 23rd, 20XX.
Looking for a job in the famous TV station at Odaiba, college senior Jin Mishima attended the recruitment orientation. Not far away from the station, Nanako Okano, a gothic lolita trying to attend a concert, found out that her friends tricked her about the concert ticket because of jealousy. The two bumped into each other and "reunited" -- they were junior high classmates -- moments before an earthquake of Richter Scale 8.1 turned the island (the entire city, in fact) into ruins.

Top-Quality Disaster-Survival Manga   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

It's been months since I read this, but I still can't forget it. It has five things that have been staples of a certain kind of science fiction for many decades:

Disaster and a subsequent struggle to survive;
The Inevitable attendant suffering, some of it grotesquely impactful;
An everyday guy forced to become a hero;
Love in the ruins;
And, above all, relentless suspense.

Regarding the suspense, I remember that I had to force myself to put this down every few chapters so as not to end up reading it too fast and missing all the pleasure this great story had to give.

(For the reader who disliked this story because it had rape in it, be aware that human nature is such that just about every time social order thoroughly breaks down, and so some men feel they can get away with it, there will be rapes. It's sad but true. Anyone telling a story of such a breakdown has to put them in to be realistic.)

WOW. This is intense! I have only read four chapters, but I am really impressed. Thus far it is very realistic and it is scary to think that things like this actually do happen. I started this just on a whim, but now I am checking frequently just to see if there is another released! lol. READ IT!

I've only read the first chapter, but I'm hooked. This manga is quite different (and this is a good thing).

I can't wait to read more. The author sounds quite interesting too.

But in page 1080 in the last chapter in the main room of the protagonist house, there is cameo of a painting by the great master Zdzislaw Beksinski,That! that alone gives this manga a rating waaaaay over 10!

Over-all Good

I can't say that this is one of my favorite manga series but its a good read all the same. This series seems like it has been researched heavily but in a situation like this, you can probably make up as much as you want. If I had to decide on a weakness, it would be that the main characters are not very interesting. Still good over-all though.

predictable, stiff.

I read the first two volumes and was unimpressed. It seems very ... 'stiff'. Every event and solution to the problem follows on just as you'd expect it would given the genre, tone, and plot. That can be done elegantly ... but here it's just dropping the tropes you'd expect.

I think I would have preferred it if emo-chan didn't go through her character development. Sure, she was a ridiculous person, but following that stupid-girl-reluctantly-grows-up-due-to-disaster-thing without any variation and just falling into place as you'd expect ... *yawn*.

I dunno. Maybe I should just stop reading survival manga. I imagine if you actually like these tropes or haven't encountered them much you might like it - though I still think it beats you over the head with them a bit.

Also, the 'let's educate the reader about earthquakes' thing annoys me. Show don't tell.
