It's been 3 years since I've last finished the manga. Times has changed... Alive's Anime has been canceled, The author of the manga died, and the series has been dead quiet. We need a Revive! This Series was an amazing one and I cannot accept the fact that this series will not be turned into an Anime! I LOVE Alive The Final Evolution to death! .______.
Whoa, the auothor died!? That's sad :/ I just finished the manga and freaking loved it. (However, no Nami ending, ffs. >_>) And an anime would be awesome. D:


He literally wrote the last chapters on his death bed. You can sense his voice coming out in the last chapter the mc says at the end" I'll keep living"
and there is a scanlator note " there is a poignancy in the way these last pages of this last chapter were written. As some of you may know, the author of alive finished this series on his death bed. The narration you have been reading probably contains the authors exact thoughts as he faced his own death. Sort of like someone speaking to you from the grave."

There's better stuff waiting to be animated. Alive was decent and I doubt the anime would be something great. Sad but true.

Sad, this manga is really good. It sucks that a lot of crappy manga are getting animated instead of this.

This stinks! I was looking foward to it too! I guess I'll have to give the Manga a try... wouldn't have known about it, if it weren't for the fact that they were going to be making the Anime. But... this does explain, why it isn't on my list anymore.
