Japan is a brilliant Asian model of success and obligatorily. But how would this country manage to manage a large-scale sanitary crisis? What would it happen if, to Shinjuku, one of the biggest districts of Tokyo, a man came to empty of his blood in the street at broad daylight? How would the political and sanitary authorities manage the drama? Think, please, about the question as long as you still have the possibility of it because for the professors Onodera and Sekiguchi it is already too late! An emergent virus begins to insinuate itself slowly into the arteries of the Japanese capital?

Since there was only 1 non-preliminary view here it goes:
The biggest advantage of this manga is that it tells a short, interesting story relatively quickly.
The art is fine even though it focuses on blood much too much when it doesn't (would much rather the panels focus on character emotion)
The characters are OK, but not fleshed out and sort of cookie cutter, and I know it is short but there are series that can do more with less time.
However it was a nice brisk read and anyone interested in the premise should give it a read cause it isn't much of a commitment

So what do you get when a cold-like -deadly- disease makes someone's eyes go bloodshot, bleed then make the person pretty much 'explode'? You get an epidemic that makes Japan go nuts.

So Emerging is about a viral infection that spreads incredibly easily and produces pretty ugly symptoms. A family doctor, a cool, collected doctor and a Ebola-obsessed doctor manager band together to fight a disease that makes people go boom. Well, sort of. If you want the technical side of things, it just puts a lot of pressure on the blood vessels and the blood needs somewhere to go so it squirts out at wherever read more

So I'm guessing there is going to be some renewed interest in this manga considering the world's current situation with Corona virus. I myself began reading it for the same reason, and while it isn't anything amazing, it is definitely an interesting read that you can probably breeze through in just over an hour.

An aspect I liked about the manga was it's semi realistic take on how a modern day Japan would respond to a pandemic. The virus itself is where the horror part of the manga comes in, and also where the art is at its best. Infected individuals turn into these bloated read more

Ok, basically you have a virus that no one has ever seen before, and drop it right in the center of one of the worlds most crowded cities....sounds like a lot of sci-fi books right? well, it is, but its pretty unique in manga. few mangas address the very real possibility of a viral infection appearing, spreading quickly, and being unable to stop it
while the story is very original, the art is nothing special, and as far as characters go, the ones in this series are pretty flat. what rlly brings about the believability of the story and the detail that the author goes into read more
