In the middle of Shibuya's scramble crossing, one boy finds himself able to hear the thoughts of the people around him. Unsure as to why he's there with nothing but a mysterious black badge with a skull on it, Neku Sakuraba is quickly spotted by a girl who demands to make a pact with him, explaining that she requires it to not get "erased" by malicious creatures known as the "Noise." After forming the pact, the mysterious girl defeats the Noise and introduces herself as Shiki Misaki, along with her stuffed animal Nyan-tan.

Shiki explains that the two of them must join forces for the next seven days, as they are part of the "Shinigami's Game." Much to his dismay, Neku reluctantly goes along as an invisible wall prevents him from leaving Shibuya. Not only will the duo need to protect themselves from the Noise using "psychs", abilities gained from badges, but they are also required to clear daily Missions given under certain time limits.

As he clears the seemingly needless Missions one after another, Neku is left wondering about the true nature of the Shinigami's Game.

The World Ends With You is a manga that, sorry to say, I'm disappointed with. I am a fan of the game which made me want to read the manga in the first place. The art is average, the story is loosely based on the game, and the humor is very childish like. However, it only shows the first part of the story and not the rest like the game did. In my opinion, the DS game was better than the manga. So, I recommend that you should just play the game and not bother to even read this.

I didn't play the game, and I dun own a DS, so I have noooo idea what the comic is about at all.

Really really very poor for a one shot, seeing how it is from a game.
The story seems like Fate/Stay Night, with a main protagonist suddenly landing in a game. But unlike Fate/Stay Night, see no action at all, all I know is that it's some kind of game, and other small details. Supposed to have plot, but terribly messed up, focus jumps here and there.

Commendable art, but not surprising, it looks something like from Kingdom Hearts or any other similar Square ...

I had high hopes for this manga because it is from one of my favorite video games "the world ends with you" but... The manga was horrible, it only has two chapters. The first chapter has a very strong beginning but the second was HORRIFIC. After Neku is given his first mission to reach 104 building, it just has a picture of a few noise then... 7 Days Later... WHAT KIND OF REAPERS GAME IS THAT, Neku doesn't even finish any of the reaper missions or beat the game master. The art was pretty good though, especially the color pages. I found enjoyment deeply staring ...
