[edit by mod,possible spoiler]

From Narutaru mangaka Mohiroh Kito comes yet another enthralling manga. I read up to chapter 30. It shares much in common with Narutaru as it delves into the psychology of each teenager and the problems they face before they're forced to pilot Zearth. Because even if they win not a happy ending awaits them. In the end of volume 5 more about the game's plot is revealed. The manga will probably have as many volumes as Shadow Star and till know it is as good as the former in making the reader feel like reading a psychological thriller.
Character developement is outstanding as each character has a distinct personality and psychological problems.Some of them manage to overcome them, others dont.

If you liked Narutaru I'm sure you'll enjoy this even more. In terms of character developement it's on par with Evangelion manga and even better in some cases. I dont like mecha manga or anime but for this I'll make an exception

yeaaaa i was not really expecting this mang a to have a happy ending nor did i want it to have a happy endiing. but anyway i dont really have nothing to say other than this was a nice manga, worth reading, and would kinda confuse you in the ending. yayyyyyyyy

story wise- this manga is awsome
art wise - kinda different than the others but you get use to it so nice art for me
character - i didnt like that every single femal character look almost like guys especial when they all are flat chest "every single one of them" but o well

i give this manga a 9.5 because i kinda got confuse with the ending but in a way kinda understand what the author was trying to say

Did'nt particulary liked it. at first it looked good, but i'm not really into mecha. but even without that, i did'nt feel any attacment to any of the charactere. they were boring, maybe some did have great backround, but not enought to satisfy me. did'nt even cry or feel sad. it was really without emotion that i read it completly. why? curiosity. i really just wanted to know the story behind everything and what will happen to all of them.

Entertaining but not a masterpiece

It's entertaining but not really a masterpiece. For starters, just the same story every 2 pr 3 chapter, except with the focus on a different child. The Kids are in the 7th grade but sure don't act like it. They just seem to accept things too well which is something 7th graders are not normally good at. No 7th grader would ever be so well adjusted or self sacrificing. My biggest gripe is they never show the friends or family of the character after the battles so you never find out what happens there and that's a major letdown.

Wellm subject says everything.. its great. If you like psychological drama, go for it - altrough its pretty depressing at times. Plus, I think they should make kids younger, because their minds are pretty mature and they must deal with mature matters in story.. so why not make them two or three years older?smile

this is bullshit man, i dont get how can anybody read this, look what kind of fun can provide me this shit if u know u are gonna watch how every single character dies one by one so fast that sometimes you dont even remmember their names, characters with future and a lot of things to live and lot on their minds because they die after they pilot so everyone is fated to die , man that is not fair, there are things dark but this man does not make sence , look if you want to read something good then read historie or akira or who knows, but this is far faaaaaar from being fun , i fucking waste a lot ot time , i cant understand why this shit was serialised and how i read it till the end, this is really true, its a pain, and it does not worth reading it, i only give a 9 because there a LOT of bullshit out there and after all the plot was something above good, anyway, if u want to read this, my opinion is that its not worth readin , is a pain, like reading some shoujo or something like a guy who has a crush on the most popular girl in school and always the same shit
