This is a nice treat for all Resident Evil fans.
For those who are not familiar with Resident Evil games (no, not movies, they are completely irrelevant), this manga will not serve anything worthful.
Coming back, I've never believed that CapCom can make a really outstanding scenario, however Resident Evil always been a great series with all parts connecting to each other, completing a bigger picture.
This manga, taking a place in the canon story, with the debut of our new character Piers, is taking place before the events of Resident Evil 6, probably around same time of Resident Evil: Damnation.
Our test ground is now a high reputation desolated school, having characters from within and outside with different and -unexpectedly interesting- personalities. Starting from a zombie schoolgirl, experienced professor comes to investigate, however he soon realizes that he is faced against something similar to T-Virus, but not entirely.
With nice drawings (I was actually surprised, wouldn't wanna see anime-ish Chris), and a story that is having a curve towards the last installments of the series, it is basically watching a gameplay of the game that you can't have. Those who played Resident Evil 6 will understand what I'm implying, so no spoilers here.
Do not expect a Ryukishi level scenario, after all it's Resident Evil and the deepest it can go is already given ten years ago. However, you can expect something not entirely action but a story and fright. Yeah, the feeling of desolation with monsters that are not easy to kill without being killed. Those shiny short-skirted high school girls are just a trap! read more
