It's a day like any other, and high school students Ie and Kazu are on the bus home from school when, suddenly, it floods with a mysterious gas. The pair pass out and wake up to find themselves aboard a truck packed full of human bodies. They're surrounded by rows of frozen corpses... and a staff of living human beings sawing them into pieces. Where are they... and how can they escape from this nightmare?

I've just started reading this manga and I absolutely love it. Lets go through an overview ( I'll try my best not to give spoilers)

So the story starts with Kazu and I'e, who are both high schoolers. They go on a bus and I'e finds that everyone on the bus are gassed(kind of like in battle royale). He wakes up in a strange facility surrounded by corpses. Then he meets other people stuck in this place, Natsune and Yamabiki. Natsune seems to be very violent and Yamabiki Well the four of them band together to try and escape the facility and discover weird things read more

Do you like gore and monsters? Then this manga might be right up your alley.

*This is a spoiler free preview*

Shokuryou Jinrui can only be described as "repulsive made beautiful". The first thing to draw your attention is the top-notch art with great character designs. The touch is realistic and the gross stuff comes off as sickening as it can get - just like it should.

The story is pretty standard survival horror which brings close the ugliness of the human nature but there's also some more imaginative twists. If you've read the authors' previous work Apocalypse no Toride the pattern seems familiar: an isolated place, read more

After reading the first few chapters, this manga didn't seem particularly different or inspiring.

I was very surprised to find that I was REALLY enjoying the story as it progressed. Like, a lot.

The plotline is definitely unique, and very interesting. The pacing of the story is great. One of the charms of this manga is the way the plot is gradually revealed to you, instead of giving you a massive read more

I don't ever write reviews, but I feel like this title deserves it since it's so underrated. Starving Anonymous is one of the most underrated manga I've ever come across. It's not quite a masterpiece, but it's worth the read.

story: 8/10

If you're a big fan of cosmic horror, then you should definitely check this out ASAP. On the other hand, if you don't like graphic gore and sex stuff then you might want to reconsider. I personally didn't have a problem with it after the first chapter or so.

The story really gets you hooked from the start. Some foreshadowing is done in the read more
