Synopsis

Neku Sakuraba, a 15 year-old boy with a hobby for music and graffiti, wakes up in what seems to be the Shibuya shopping district of Tokyo, Japan. With no idea why he's there, he opens his hand to realize he is holding a strange black pin. After flipping it with his hand, the thoughts of the people surrounding him began to flow into his head at once. Surprised, Neku discovers he is able to read the minds of others, and assumes it has something to do with the black pin he is holding.

A cellphone starts to ring in his pocket, and he can't tell whether it is his or not. A text message appears: "Reach 104. You have 60 minutes. Fail, and face erasure. -The Reapers". After discovering he can't delete the message, a timer of 60 minutes imprints onto his right hand. Neku is in Shibuya to play the "Reapers' Game", which spans a total of 7 days. All Players of the Reapers' Game have a black pin with a skull embedded on it.

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.

Story:2
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.

Art:6
Commendable art, but not surprising, it looks something like from Kingdom Hearts or any other similar Square read more

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 read more

The world ends with you is probably my favorite game of all time.
The manga on the other hand, is not very good at all. It leaves out a whole lot, doesn't really get the characters personalities correct, and doesn't really had a story all together... Really, if you had no idea about the game at all, i could imagen this manga leaving you very confused as to what, who and why anything is really happening.
HOWEVER, there were some things I find somewhat redeemable. I did quite like the art style it was drawn in. It's not anything show stopping or even unique, but i read more
