Bokutachi no Ikita Riyuu is a hard one to review because I have a personal attachment to it, I was one of the few people actively reading it towards its run so I may be a little harder on it than most but I still feel this review needs to be made.
Story (4): The story is honestly abysmal it has a decent concept but eventually devolves into hide and seek with a monster, plot points are outright dropped before they have to be explained and characters always seem to actively not know what's going on even when it's obvious
Art (7): The artwork is very nice
to look at, as with all Manga Box work the art is higher quality than the storytelling.
Characters (4): The characters are nothing more than one note, there are lots of betrayals and character motivations being revealed but they mostly fall flat, foreshadowing devolves into just showing you stuff and making you guess what it will mean later, in almost all cases I predicted who was going to betray who.
Overall/Enjoyment (5): Overall the series is a fairly fun ride from start to finish however it starts to dip towards the middle when it's mostly just running with little plot progression, however in the end I enjoyed it and I felt the story justified it's own existence by surprising me at the end.
