Tokyo—a bustling city brimming with technology and culture—is the heart of Japan. It is the center of the country's government, acts as its economic hub, and attracts thousands of people from tourists to businessmen worldwide.

All seems well, until a terrifying 8.1 magnitude earthquake brings the city to its knees. The calamitous event destroys schools, hospitals, and other critical national infrastructure—leaving hundreds dead and thousands homeless without food or water.

Jin Mishima is a 21-year-old college senior who is caught up in the earthquake. Accompanying him is his old friend, the outlandish gothic lolita Nanako Okano. Together, the two must survive the harsh social and practical realities brought about by the earthquake—in a Tokyo where crime is rife, no person is safe, and only the combined effort of the survivors can end the anarchy of the city's crumbling society.

This is the first time I stumbled upon a survival manga based on real life disasters. The story line isn’t propelled by generic disasters such as being stranded on an island, or stuck in a boat but is driven by realistic phenomenon and encountering people while attaining a new outlook on life.

The story is nice and simple, it’s simple in a sense that as a reader you will be able to understand pretty much anything the story throws at you. However behind this seemingly simple story is riddled with the complex human psyche and philosophical notions. The great thing about this manga is ...

Kanojo wo Mamoru 51 no Houhou suffers from BTS (Bad Title Syndrome) [I read about this from another review], as in the name has nothing to do with the manga at all. It is mentioned in the end, but still doesn't make sense.
And no, there is no romance depicted.
Sci-Fi - I have no idea as to why that genre is given.
Action is not your usual one. People running around saving themselves and stuff, that sort of action....if it is considered in the action genre.

KwM51nH :P is not for childern. Not for the faint-hearted either.
It shows the true colours of human - good, bad, really bad ...

The story is based on real life events with some fiction added to the story line. The manga reveals how humans can be cruel and merciful during a life threatening crisis.

The author shows that humans are savages by nature, but there are good in people too. I personally believe this story was very well thought out. The main character is a good-nature 21 year-old that is in conflict with himself.
