This manga has decent art.
The plot is interesting too. (There are several arc to it.)
Although this turn out to be another super power and hot-blooded teenagers manga. (etc. bleach,one piece where protoganist is strong.)
Overall, its still is enjoyable for the first arc.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
it might start all normal but then the suicide thing happens of course you already knew that was gonna happen what you didn't know was that was almost completely irrelevant it just serves as a jump into a battle / romance / friendship manga with heavy psychological overtones that said the main lead is a unbearable naruto type character who can't believe that his best friend tried to kill him add in the fact that the best friend kidnaps this sakura type character yada yada yada you will love the villains hate the bleach like way that none of the main character friends die and the relationship you want to happen don't. all in all it is a good manga just more of the type you watch like a movie instead of getting into it

I think the description is a bit misleading to what it's actually about - the suicide virus aspect quickly falls into the background. For the most part it's kids with superpowers chasing other people with superpowers, with fights whenever one group runs into each other.

Despite the concept being nowhere near as interesting as you'd think from reading the description, it's well executed.

I can not believe that I went and read so much of the story. I quickly realized that the artwork is sub-par but the other problems have to do with the story itself. While I have to admit that the quality of the story is high, the feeling of the manga is the same that you get from death note and other such very dark well written pieces. Not worth reading unless you like dark and depressing and evil.
A very ugly type of story that delves deep into the worst of human nature.

hated the main dude

I can't believe this manga got a 8.8 rating damn. Oh well i actually didn't like this manga because it feautres you typical hero who still believes in a friend that actually tried to kill him and also kidnaps his other best friend--that girl. After reading naruto, i just coudn't handle going over that frustration again. Yes the villains are interesting but you are not supposed to root for the villains, you are supposed to root for the hero and so hero's character has to be good and unique and it just isn't. I read 30 chapters of this and just gave up because of this dude. Also the hero's allies generally do not die and that is frustrating. Other than the hero's character this manga is ok i guess. Art is good and plot is ok though cliche at times but cliches work sometimes so i don't mind. Others might like this more if they like heroes who are fully good and naieve but i don't.

The manga had a great start with brilliant character development. The plot is great though it was a little more shallow after the first arc. This manga is definitely worth reading.

I have too much homework and because of this (freakin addicting) manga now I have to be up till 3am; great. Anyway, I came across this manga 4 hours ago, couldn't stop reading, neglected my tremendous amount of homework, and finished up to volume 18 already.
thats all imma say since im in a hurry. hope it was useful. oh, and usually i dont read manga like this, or with this kind of art but im addicted.
Word of advice: Make sure you aren't busy, or I gaurantee you won't get anything done-__-

I like the story until 1st arc finish... After taisuke's gone and found out again, the story seem less attractive. And anyways, the artwork is the one i trully admire. For characters, i don't really like the taisuke's character... sometimes he could be a dumb. He remainds me of naruto, but naruto's better..

I was reading this, and i was wondering to myself why i was reading it. Something about this manga made me finish up to vol 16 in 1 day. I thought about how stupid it was with all of the brainwashing and insanity. I didnt really like the plot and the antagonist was gay. Probably the only thing i kept looking forward to was the relationship between Taisuke and Nami. Im a sucker for romance.

Dunno why i liked it when i hated everything about it. Weird.
