    There's seem to be a trend lately in WSJ of manga starting with the MC confessing his love in the first chapter (3 this round and 1 in the previous one).
    Anyway, I can't say I was really impressed by the first chapter besides the art which was expected. The 2 MC didn't do anything for me to even start liking them.
    But well, with this kind of setting, my opinion can change pretty quickly with the next chapters.
    So far my feeling for this round is : Poro > U19 > Dr Stone = Hungry Marie > We Never Learn.
    But I expect the order to be the opposite in Japan.

    Let's discuss ratings of the 6 newbies in the shueisha thread. But for me poro is bottom last. Can't figure out the rest rigth now.

    Read Hungry Marie, U19 and this one (might as well read the other 3 because discussing is fun)

    I love the art in this one, especially the nature. I haven't read a lot of survival stories, but I feel it should be essential that the surroundings are interesting. The series has a good, unique setting with visuals to back it up. The characters... they're certainly interesting with well-defined personalities, but depending on the direction they will either turn very annoying or very interesting. The girl is the most interesting love interest so far.

    Something this manga has going for me, is that it got me interested on it's own. U19 interests me because of Kids Next Door and Hungry Marie because of Beelzebub. If you removed those influences I doubt I'd be following them.

    I am not convinced. I don't know what the story is (aside from basic survival), and that troubles me a lot. The characters are also pretty bland. Hopefully it'll improve...

    Solitary confinement is one of the worst punishments you can receive - within just weeks it can cause semipermanent damage to one's psyche. We're social creatures for the most part, and our brains are wired to need social stimulation. Obviously hermits exist, but these are very few and far between; the exception, not the rule.

    It's hard to imagine how being in essentially forced solitary in the dark for thousands of years wouldn't have resulted in madness but rather leave these kids apparently unscathed. Maybe they'll address it at some point.

    Or maybe it is just a manga and nobody cares if it is that much realistic

    The counting for thousands of years ans being a random super genius is such a Hiruma thing lol. But the other guy....I dunno. They really should both be a tad more insane.


    I'm guesiing that the guy he saw sitting is going to wake up at some point. Or probably next some girl but not the one he likes.

    I wonder if there are evolved animals/creatures in this world. The thought about what types of antagonists there could be (if there even will be antagonists, although the drama tone of this series makes me think there will) besides other awakened humans.

    The evolution of animals depends on how much fantasy the author wants. If he wants to keep it realist, at most there would be something like very big wolves, bears or some other predator that became the top of the food chain. A less realistic scenario could be a planet of the apes situation, monkeys overtook civilization and kept it afloat. An then there's full fantasy, dinosaurs, monsters, aliens or whatever.
    I hate quacks.

    This manga deserves to stay at least a year just because of that.

    Es21's author's story, huh? Boichi drawing a sci-fi... yep, gonna read it.
    My last time with a weekly upstart in jump was Nurarihyon no Mago, a shit packed in olive leaf, got to drop it.

    Average chapter, but with interesting traits, i don't like the birds below mammals chances of surviving, but is nothing. That Trump sure has plenty of thoughts to take action xd.

    Anyone else think counting every second for thousands of years is dumb? Lol my first thought was you didn't lose count, really?

    Considering it was mostly a madness mantra, and had literally no distractions except the void calling to kill him, no.

    It's a thing Hiruma did in Eyeshield for like a year and some months while holding conversations playing football and...well living. I think the author just likes absurd minds lol.

    But being unable to do nothing and just keeping count should drive him insane lol.

    At the point human bodies petrify and somehow stay active for 3000 years with no degradation, I'm not fully convinced they're technically "human" anymore.

    The state in which they were in is already absurd, so it kinda gives a free-pass on whatever happens during it.
