I really can't be bothered to take the time to read 60+ chapters of raws, I can do a few, but 60+.. oh god no... So I can say up to chapter 39, the manga is honestly not too impressive.. HOWEVER, I am really excited to see this adapted into an anime because the manga does have a lot of potential, I just don't think its paced well, and they never show a character enough for you to actually get to like them. I really do think the anime could be one of my favorites of whatever season it airs. I just hope its not a letdown like most modern "horror" anime..

I don't know much about the story, but Sawashiro Miyuki as the girl would seem to be mighty appealing if it does happen. Though I don't know what her personality is supposed to be like...but how could you go wrong with Sawashiro Miyuki voicing a zombie girl? Turn on the rasp!

Basically the character was made with her in mind lol :P

It's a battle horror much like Kiseijuu (Parasyte) manga.


Sadly, for a battle manga the action scenes leave much to be desired.

Are you saying this based on the current translated chapters? Cause I believe there's a lot of battle past 60 chapters, maybe you should check out the raws which is over 100 chapters already. :)

Wow it's getting animated?

Why do people keep going Pupa this Pupa that? It's nothing like Pupa.

I read the first volume and it's simply amazing. I hope it's gets a great boost in sales and I hope the adaption does the manga justice.

Looks interesting.

Horror, mystery? I'm in! Will definitely watch.

Damn, just sneaked a peek at the latest raws cause the scanlation team is about 70 chapters behind and I'm not regretting it a little bit. Just hope this will be another faithful adaptation cause I can see it being quite successful if it follows the manga completely.

Well horror is always welcome, but I also hope it doesn't get censored to oblivion.

How hype are you

PV is quite good. Anyone recognize the voice in the PV? Sounds like Mitsuki Saiga.

I'm pretty sure that's her voice, yes definitely her.
Still that's the manga PV. Now I'm all curious about the anime cast!

I don't know about others but I want Sawashiro Miyuki as Touka :P


Ohh that's definitely my headcanon choice for Touka as well.

NO, another PUPA, NOOOOOOO

I hope this turns out to be good.
It has gore but the setting is nothing like Pupa. It has a lot of conflict, a very deep social/racial standing and different perspectives from both the main guys and the opponents. You will find this a good series.


yep, I caught up with the manga, very interesting. Hope for some R+ Rating

I just caught up to the manga as well, and I have to say, it's a very engrossing read. It's not a masterpiece but it is definitely pretty good. I'm looking forward to the anime!

Caught up to the manga and I can say that I'm looking forward to this as I'm always down for a Psychological thriller.

Someone should add it on MAL. I'm going to watch it for sure.
