Mai Yashiro (22) was an average office worker until the day a video game console arrived in her mailbox. The game she is forced to play, "Nightmare," is a dangerous game in which one risks both the lives of the ones they love and their own body!! If you refuse to play, those dear to you die. If you lose battles in the game, parts of your body (your arms or legs, your voice, etc.) cease functioning. The horror of this game spreads throughout society in a flash, and, to fight it, Mai's company creates a "Nightmare" Strategy Team. After being assigned to this team, Mai and her dependable comrades boldly rise up against this hellish game. Adapted from the super-popular novel which has received over 40,000,000 hits online!!

I'm here to review one of the most underrated mangas in the whole world. It's one of my absolute favourites so I thought I'd review it.
Anyway, this manga is about a deadly game. "Didn't I read it somewhere?", "It's just a SAO ripoff"... That's how people go when the hear what this manga is about. And this manga isn't even close to SAO. This manga has something original in it, something that would make you laugh, cry, be afraid of the dark, and excited.
Everything about this manga is just perfect, amazing story, amazing art, interesting characters with mysterious past, and shocking plot twists that read more

(!) If you want a quick(er) review, you can skip the first part below or jump straight to conclusion.

First of all, what I consider a manga should be like? In my opinion, it is a form of entertainment that is somewhere in-between anime and novels, but on the other hand it's something unique. Going straight to the point, "Online: The Comic"is just neither of the three of them. Plain text is approximately 80% if the manga (well, it an exaggeration but you get the point). And it's probably ok as long as the drawings complement it right? Yeah, except that they are not...
