Mishima is your average spineless pushover, working as a repairman for the Exopolis Tower, Tokyo's largest and hottest highrise business and entertainment building. He promised to come home in time to celebrate his son's birthday, but when he lets his pushy boss saddle him with overtime, the task takes him all night. On the morning subway train heading home, a massive earthquake strikes and collapses both the Exopolis Tower and its underground train lines. Now Mishima is trapped deep underground with the other passengers of the train, some of whom are less than cooperative. Will he be able to take the initiative for once and lead them all to freedom, or will they starve in their underground prison?

Metro Survive takes place in the middle of the city, Tokyo. As the name describes the entire plot, there's a lot more to uncover from this. Metro Survival brings up emotions from the bottom of the heart, uncovering the true heart of a human being. People in despair, people that have totally given up all hope of life and people struggling for their life.

The story's main protagonist is a person called Mishima Shogo, a young man with a wife and a little kid working at the brand new paradise of entertainment. The Expolis Tokyo where the entire plot is unfolded at. It's a paraside of read more

Manga: Dragon Head
Dragon Head was in its element when, following an earthquake, three people found themselves trapped underground after their train derailed, surrounded by corpses.

Where as DH's characters don't stay underground for more than a few volumes, Metro Survive's tale of survival starts and finishes with its character underground. The two are different, as a result, but to begin with the feelings of claustrophobia and panic expressed make it easy to link the titles.

(FYI, DH goes to shit after its early earthquake/train drama.)

Manga: Hyouryuu Kyoushitsu
In both mangas a group of people experience a catastrophe and end up in an isolated environment... then starts the game of survival.

Manga: Tobaku Mokushiroku Kaiji
Kaiji and Metro Survive both put normally stifled and weak everymen into do-or-die situations which allow their character to shine. Also, there is a lot of "heartlessness for the sake of survival" in both.

Manga: Emerging
Although stories of these manga are completely different (apart from the fact that both of them deal with extreme survival situations) both of them are quite short and have the same feeling of urgency and desperation at times.
I'm sure that if you enjoyed reading one of them you'll enjoy the other too.
