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?

Holy shit, this was actually a really good read. I wasn't expecting to be impressed at the beginning, but reading the whole manga transformed my score from 6/10 to 9/10.

The first third of the manga feels like it would be another dark, edgy, shock-factor story, however, it really finds it's tone in the last half. Don't go into this manga thinking you'll get a super-serious drama/suspense/horror masterpiece. There are many moments where it shifts from dark to comedic, shocking to absurd—it complements really well most of the time. When a character dies, you feel empathy, and most of them have interesting backstories that are at read more

[Major spoilers down here!]

My review will not be really long because i don't think i have a lot of things to say but there's time when you gotta differ bullshit than real story

I don't dislike gore, it's pretty interesting but i don't like gore for gore. Take berserk's eclipse, it's probably the most horrifying things you could ever watch and it's well-placed gore, Gatts is like living a fucking nightmare, it's just great and the art is stunning! But in Shokuryou, it's bullshit, half of the gore is useless and put here for gore, there's time where it's nice but you can't just fill 90% read more

Shokuryou Jinrui is entertaining. It's grotesque and certainly what you would want from a body horror manga. I can't say I saw a huge amount that really shocked me though. It reminded me a lot of Gantz but stupider. If you know anything about biology and evolution then a lot of the backstory is going to seem dumb as a rock

Autistic gripes with the backstory (spoilers):
The aliens require food CONSTANTLY, breed like insects BUT also are incredibly intelligent?? There is no organism that even approximates this in reality and E. O. Wilson demonstrates with the concept of convergence, that if you don't see it on read more

Personally I’m a big fan of horror and body gore; originally that is how this manga was peddled to me via TikTok. (surprise, surprise. Who else remembers that?)
Even though it does seem pretty “ordinary” to the genre for the first few chapters, I wasn’t in it for the story at the beginning anyway, buuuut that’s what I ended up staying for.
In everyday life I’m a forensic scientist and there were a couple things that made me rise my eyebrow a little bit, since they would not really be biologically sustainable. I’m aware it’s all fiction, but it was enough to break immersion read more
