Survival Manga

January 29, 2013

Manga

When I first saw 7 seeds, I looked at the cover and thought to myself: “Ugh, not agian one of those cliche shojo manga with saucer eyes.”, but something about the setting intrigued me, so I kept reading despite the old drawing style and the slow pace of the first volume. And I’ve recently caught up to ch 120 and BOY was it a good read. I think one of the strong points with survival mangas is that you can usually enjoy a variety of characters and are not limited to a single hero trying to rescue the whole world (looking at you, Ichigo and Son Goku). So if you enjoy survival manga and apocalyptic worlds, this one develops slowly and gets progressively better, especially the survival arc of the elite team reminded me a lot of Battle Royale, but I won’t tell more. Read for yourself!

    Ah, a true classic. Also quite depressing at times. Thanks for the post, I was missing some chapters after a HDD crash.

    Sure did, and I agree that it’s seriously awesome. That continuity in the form of damages on the city’s infrastructure is seriously cool.

    This is a little necro, and no one will probable see it, but found out another good manga :
    Gate – Thus the JSDF Fought There!
    For mediafire links:

    or online reader:

    The history begin with a portal to a parallel world (medieval fantasy) opening in Tokyo and the JSDF going to the another side on a reconnaissance mission. Manga try to be somewhat “realist” in the context.
    Look at the above links for a better summary.
