What do you think would happen to the sales figures if the heroine wasn't still pure-pure; ready for 22yo lead plucking? Think before you ask such things.


Thanks for the answer...

I'm not even upset. I'm just calling out a spoiler. The least you could do is edit it out.

It's whatevs though. Do what you want.


By highlighting drug usage x escape as a spoiler, as well as quoting, all you've done is draw people's attention to an otherwise skim-over comment. I thought you were green and hadn't read the manga. Tch. I'm disappointed in you.

But why did school girls get drugged/raped and how did the heroine escape--that is the question. The 'why' is what you should be thinking on.

...Ok, I'll stop teasing you. Yes: I didn't think the usage of drugs and the heroine escaping, when no-one likes used goods, would've upset you. I'm sorry. (Female love interest in survival manga are ALWAYS rapebait. ALWAYS.)

In life, accidents happen. Crying changes nothing. To be a man one must take such things in their stride and walk onwards.

A simple answer would have just been 'Yes, there is rape'.

You basically just spoiled parts of the plot =/


I'd never spoil the raping of schools girls and displease a fellow man. FYI, without a certain degree of context, stating there's rape alone isn't spoilerific; simply factual.

FYI(2), the trailer showed both of what I referred to. That's how I knew it'd be in the anime. I'm real smart, me, y'see.
Yes, the trailer shows the heroine getting fondled by a fat guy and there's a glimpse of a school girl being pulled in a room. However, you went into detail about them being
That last part is significant to the plot. Anyone reading that could now make the connection once the anime explains the game.

No, it just has a fat guy trying to rape the heroine and a flashback where school girls got drugged & raped... but the heroine escaped.

...wait, maybe the answer is y/n since, even though there wasn't any rape in the present, there was in the past?... Idk.

somehow I have a feeling that this will be like with Zetman - filler ending, censorship, etc. Another epic manga will be ruined. Japanese really do not make decent animes recently

I wonder how much they'll censor this. I think the manga is good but it just seems like Gantz and Battle Royale combined, but not as good as either. I'm hoping the anime will make me more interested.


It's airing on AT-X, so no censor.
Best news ever!

Doesn't seem all that interesting to me, even if it's Madhouse.I'll probably end up giving the first episode a watch just to make sure.
