"I don't want it to end..." Akira had made up his mind to confess his feelings to Himeno, the girl he liked, on the day they graduated elementary school. But what was waiting for him in the classroom was Himeno like he had never seen her before! Before they knew it, Akira and his classmates were trapped inside the school, unable to escape. Who was doing this, and why? Mysterious forces close in on the 11 fearful children, as if to laugh at them. This is the story of a harsh fate that awaits them. Does a hopeful future await them, or an ending filled with despair...?

A psychological horror type manga directed more towards kids than adults (as I'm sure you can pick up from the dialogue in the first chapter)

Middle school graduation day, boy goes to tell girl his true feelings, ends up waking up locked in his school with 11 other classmates, and the plot begins from there. I've watched/red plenty of students trapped in the school types, but this ones got just enough creativity to the plot to make it unique.
The arts lovely, all the students are well drawn and have their own distinct design, instead of being the generic character types were all so used to (except read more

A group of people wakes up and finds themselves trapped in school, very original,
I haven't finished reading all of it since it hasn't been translated, so my opinion might change,

The story is pretty good, twists and all that, the pace of it is nice, but it's getting old, if this gets more twisty on chapter 4...ugh
Art is awesome, clean and well thought
Everyone seems to have horror character personality, also, they're only like 12-13, the romance theme is a little to much, one of the character keeps punching the MC, that was over the top,
The monster was creepy, I enjoyed it very much, some of their read more
