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.

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.

I just binge-read this and I made the effort not to drop this just so I could make a proper review.

This was a terrible horror manga. You could put together a random series of gore images and get a better result that the whole 7 volumes of Shokuryou Jinrui. Why? Because the plot is an absolute mess and the characters are a joke.
It's pretty common to read people complaining about plots and disregarding it because, well, yeah, sometimes some mangas don't have good plots but they're still enjoyable. This is not the case. I will not spoil anything so more people can feel inclined to ...
