With the space program attempting to travel to Mars, 21st century scientists were tasked with warming up the planet so that humans could survive on its surface. They came up with an efficient and cost effective plan of sending cockroaches and mold to the surface so that the mold would absorb the sunlight and the insect corpses would serve as a food source for the mold.

It is now the year 2577 and the first manned ship to Mars has landed on the planet and the six crew members are ready for their mission. But what they find are giant mutated humanoid cockroaches with incredible physical strength. The crew members are easily wiped out, but not before sending a transmission back to Earth. Now, humanity will send elite warriors to exterminate the mutated bugs and claim back Mars.

omg this manga. this manga is just... wow... talk about despair-inducing.

in a nutshell, the manga is about human-sized cockroaches who were sent to live on mars so that humans could colonize it in 500 years but the humans definitely didn't plan for them to be human-sized and... evolve to be intelligent as well. so, if you dislike cockroaches, insects, bugs, anything like that in general -- AND THE GORE -- well, i recommend that you should not read the manga because lord, there's so many references to bugs.

the suspense is so great and i love how the art is so action-oriented -- it just read more

All I can say is this is Attack on Titan 2.0 It can (not) get worse. This some deformed child of Gantz and Attack on Titan and inferior in every way. This is one those manga's where it thinks violence equal maturity ( which is not how maturity work by the way) and is completely skippable if you read any of the other titles I just mentioned.

Well, where should we start? Well Earth population is getting out of hand and the people of earth want to colonize Mars. So Earth government decided to send roaches and some specail moss to Mars to quote on quote read more

Both deal with a team of people sent out to fight against an alien threat that is constantly becoming stronger. They both also constantly drive home the fact that "no one is safe." Lots of balls to the wall awesome moments as well.
Humans fighting a losing battle against monsters, both titles contain a factor of mystery pertaining to the monsters, and there is plenty of gore and death.
