After an airplane crash during a school trip, Oribe Mutsumi and her classmates were stranded on a seemingly deserted island. Mutsumi found the other survivors, and used her wilderness knowledge to help them. She expects that they will be rescued in about three days, which doesn't seem so long to endure. However, she didn't account for the fact that the island is populated with gigantic killer insects. Her knowledge of butterflies, wasps, and more may be the only thing that will help any of her classmates survive to be rescued!

Hirose Shuu replaced REDICE, due to poor health, as the illustrator of Kyochuu Rettou from chapter 21.

Preliminary (7/24 eps)
Im a big fan o survival anime horror and I gotta say I was not disappointed with this manga. One I would recomnd in a BIG way for anyon loking to read something strange and out of th ordinary straight out of there favourite b movie style manga.

This manga is like trash tv, it sucks ass but you still want to know what happens next. The plot is pretty straightforward, they got stranded and need to find a way out.

This is something you would read if you're really bored as once you read it you'll be falling into a rabbit hole. Had to bleach my eyes after seeing some things in there that will forever be engrained in my head.

Oh boy, here we go again.
This time, instead of Zombies, we got bugs.

Yep, bugs kills people. And a very huge one.
Of course we got a load of girls and some guys. And a lot of... uh... fanservice, like borderline hentai.

The story is kinda ok, its about MC who stranded into an island, also a survivor from plane crash, finding survivors, get out of island... right?
From the point of whole manga series, the biggest, biggest weakness is Character.

As I mention, I don`t even like character a lot. We got a MC which knows a lot of bugs behavior, yadayadayada, I know everything type character, she is ...
