With the upcoming inter high basketball tournament coming up, Akira Takashiro and Eiji Kudou declared a competition: whoever scores more points in the tournament will confess to Miku Aizawa, the girl they both have had a crush on since childhood. However, just as the rivalry was to be resolved, an earthquake knocks Akira out. When he wakes up, he finds hideous monsters swarming his school, leaving tons of corpses and blood on the ground...

Where is Eiji? What is happening? And why? As he moves on, shocking revelations will be unveiled, and maybe there's something deeper that the government is hiding.


Hakaijuu was published digitally in English as Creature! by Media Do International/Akita Publishing from September 18, 2018 to April 7, 2020.

From the first moment this manga looks like another sports manga of two friends who are fighting to ...

Is it really that hard to make a manga about humanity fighting against monsters and then actually keep it being about humanity fighting against monsters?

Look, I understand how tempting it is to go the “humans bad too” route. Betrayals, deranged individuals, abuse of authority, abuse of strength, government being useless and perfectly okay with sacrificing common citizens, I’m not saying it’s not realistic, I’m saying it’s boring to get this very shallow take when you could instead get cool monster fights. Is it too much to ask for to have a story about an alien threat and the focus not being on infighting between humans? ...
