Kominato Riku is a high school student who aims to be a game designer. The girl next door is his childhood friend Haju, is in love with him, but he has fallen head over heels for the school idol Riko. And lastly, there is the transfer student, Nodoka. With that all said you'd think this is the start of some love-comedy harem, but a rumor spreads that Nodoka's received a message that says, "you will die soon." Riku and the gang's fate will change in a major way. Who will live, and who will love?

A thousand times we die in one life. We crumble, break, and tear apart until the layers of illusion are burned away and all that's left, is the truth of who and what we really are. Is what you’re living for right now is worth dying for?

This manga undeniably will send chills down on your spine. I just though this is just some your average harem manga but seem like I mistakenly judged it. With completely dark side story brought in a new horror you will never expect. Don’t stop yet, because our nightmare is just a beginning. The true nature of this dark read more

Everything you thought about the harem genre to be destroyed in one manga.

This manga has an exceptionally dark story line that has a mix of mystery together with the story. I would describe this manga as something really 'messed up'.

People breaking down and losing control of their logical thinking and going to extremes to survive. In other words, the story is much like a 'death game' story where everyone will stake everything to survive.

Character developments are well done. The characters change and adapt through the course of the story and have interesting backgrounds. Its a story that keeps you engaged and wanting to know what read more

Mousugu Shinu Hito (English: Seeking for Death) is a very harsh deconstruction of the harem genre.

It asks the question of why would all of these women want such a passive an indecisive man's affection in the first place, and answers it with pure cynicism.

Like most harems, where females vie for the MC's affection because "He was kind to me", the women end up flocking to Riku Kominato for the same reasons, but this is where the similarity ends.

Due to the "Die Anyday" video, any woman in Riku's "harem" will eventually die if they are not chosen by Riku. This is where the main conflict occurs, read more

Mousugu Shinu Hito shows the true human nature in its purest form. a living being's will to survive no matter what, to do everything they can to not DIE.

Kominato Riku, as said in the synopsis, is your generic high school student with a liking towards videogames and therefore wanting to become a game desginer. Nothing special there, is there?

And then the ''Die Anyday'' trend of video's began to happen. And to make a short story even more short. It fucked up his life.

This harem wasn't 'kindly' built up. it is a pure forced thing and that is was I love it. little bits read more
