Natsu Iwashimizu's last memory of her family is eating her favorite meals with them. Unfortunately, she wakes up from her dream only to find herself in a sinking ship, being rescued by three strangers: Arashi Aota, whose kind-hearted personality does not match his quick temper; Semimaru Asai, who enjoys ridiculing Natsu's meek nature; and Botan Saotome, a skillful woman seemingly aware of their situation. Following the four's successful escape, they sail to a deserted island.

Unbeknownst to them, the mysterious island is Japan. After a meteorite landed on Earth, humanity was wiped out and the environment changed drastically. To repopulate the country, the government initiated the "7 Seeds" project, consisting of five groups—Spring, Summer A, Summer B, Autumn, and Winter—each with seven young healthy individuals and a guide. Natsu and the others were put into team Summer B, whose members are considered failures by society.

To get more supplies, the group must find one of the seven shelters built by the government. In a hostile, unfamiliar world with no loved ones to depend on, the quartet must learn to cooperate with each other to ensure their survival.

In 2007, 7 Seeds won the 52nd Shogakukan Manga Award in the shoujo category. It was also nominated in the Best Comic category for the 49th Seiun Awards in 2018. In the same year, the series ranked 10th on Kono Manga ga Sugoi!'s list for female readers.

The series was released in Chinese by Tong Li Publishing Co., Ltd. from January 6, 2004 to May 28, 2015, up to the 25th volume; and in French by Pika Édition from March 3, 2008 to October 20, 2010, up to the 10th volume.

The manga was adapted into a radio drama that was broadcasted in Japan from December 9, 2003 to February 6, 2004. The radio drama was then released as three drama CDs from March 26, 2004 to May 21, 2004. A fourth drama CD was later published and bundled with the release of the limited edition 35th volume on August 10, 2017.

Survival, post apocalypse mystery with some horror, comedy, romance and drama. And all of it done well, with complex and heavy topics discussed in a relatable way.
Its really something out of the ordinary, the story develops well and the mysteries are gripping and smart with aspects of science but understandable.
Simple art, but strong expressions and amazing sceneries.

Individual and interesting characters with thrilling, emotional and crazy backstories but also just regular people like us, with (mostly) realistic reactions.
Each arc tops the last and it never gets boring.

Please dont get discouraged in the beginning or spoiler yourself!!

I've contemplated back and forth on whether I wanted to write a review on this series. It's storytelling and world building is so complex and intricate that I've felt overwhelmed by how I could even begin to describe my love for this manga. However I'll try my best, since I really feel the need to convey what a special series this is.

Mixed Feelings
If you woke up from a cryogenic sleep in a hostile dystopian world with the order to rebuild mankind from the ground up, what would you do? Within that question lies the foundation of 7 Seeds. What would a person do under these circumstances? Even more, what would a person without any survival experience handle a more primitive lifestyle with dangers around every corner?

As questionable as it would be if the government chose inexperienced and traumatized people to save mankind, it’s interesting from a psychological perspective. Because some of these people can barely take care of themselves, and now they have even more weight ...
