This story starts with the tradgic tale of Meguru sister in need of a $100 million for a hert transplant and how they money was stolen by those who helped him. After this event Meguru finds himself along with 9 others in a life or death game in exchange for money. Meguru is a verry kind person giving everyone a fair chance and helping those in need. This is a verry griping manga that will have you on the edge of your seat. I highly recomend this manga to all. Its definetly one of my favorites

What makes a good short manga? Most manga are written with the idea in mind to make them go on for quite a while, or even with a full set plot in mind, may go on for several volumes. In this case, Life is Money spans only 3 volumes, which is, in my opinion, the perfect length for this story.

With the amount of survival manga out there such as Cage of Eden, this genre of manga has it tough to set itself apart from others especially with respect to the originality of the concept. That being said Life is Money does not have the most original idea, however the development within the idea surpasses many other survival manga and thrillers.

We all have something we want to save, in the case of Meguru its his dying sister, with his mother dying trying to obtain enough money to save her daughter, a myriad cost of one hundred million yen is needed. Meguru being scammed countless times, read more
