Some time ago, the asteroid Kumaria exploded in the depths of space.

The resulting fragments became a meteor shower that rained down on Earth, and for some reason, bears all over the world rose up and attacked humanity! In "Man vs. Bear," the bears ate the humans and the humans shot the bears, resulting in a seemingly unending battle and a cycle of hatred. In the end, a giant "Wall of Extinction" was erected between the humans and bears and a state of mutual nonaggression came to pass...

I started reading this manga because of the simple reason that I was in the mood to read a dorky story about about bears and high school students. I probably should have known from the scantily clad girls on the cover that I was getting myself into something else.

Yuri or shoujo ai stories can be compelling when they are done well and done respectfully, and when they have the proper development of a relationship and emotional investment between the characters. This story doesn't do that. It is yuri in a mostly fanservice sense, with lots of panty shots and girls hanging out ...
