The world is in a war against an alien race called "Mimics," who have taken over most of the world with a mission to eliminate the human race. Keiji Kiriya is a new recruit in the United Defense Force, which is battling against these "Mimics." On his first day of deployment, Keiji and his unit encounter "Mimics" and are all killed... Or was it all a dream? For some inexplicable reason, after every time he dies, he is resurrected and returned back to the day before the battle. Why does this happen to Keiji and how can he escape from this never ending cycle?

Some years ago, I found myself bored and searching for something good to read. While I was looking online for something similar to the "Forever War" and " The groundhog day," I came across this book, which story wonderfully mixes the time loops of "the groundhog day" with the war against some nonhuman beings of the "Forever war". I wasn't really expecting something that great, but I was proven wrong.

The story is really well written; I really enjoy reading it. The main concept of the manga is having a time loop during a battle that is taking place between the human race and some kind read more

This is going to be a quick review since there is only one chapter out so far and basing it on story and such is unfair.

The manga All you need is kill is written by Obata Takeshi who also did Death Note and Bakuman so my expectations were high when I saw this. This doesn't disappoint. This manga reminds me of Groundhog Day and after reading the first chapter you will see why. There is great art, the story is solid, and its got plenty of room for excitement. On first impression I'd give it an 8 but the capability is there read more

User Recommendations

+ A repeated situation full of killing and gore
+ Very psychological and the stress of the situation the characters are in takes a heavy toll on them

- Kill is about a large scale battle of humans vs. alien-like creatures while Higurashi is humans killing other humans and curses in a small village
+ A time period of just over a day repeats inifinity and ends each time with someone dying before everything is reset with most people not realizing the repetition is happening
+ The character who remembers every repetition uses that to gain knowledge and skills as they try to find a way out of the repetition

- Hakomari is a novel series and has more than just the repeated schoolday while Kill is a manga that involves humans fighting against alien-like creatures for survival
