this is sad... how many chapters/volumes left before this manga end?...

That stupid bitch didn't say shit!

 

Something tells me that religion is involved in this again.

> kid crawls inside

> cave collapses

> The End

> motherfuckers never explain why it "ruined the village"

 This (last?) arc is exasperating AF, and this whole manga by extension--especially now that this is apparently the last volume (excluding the bonus volume), which means this is more or less the end.

Holy F ! Did you came from the future?

 

Actually, yes.

"I'll tell you!" x3.

Fucking. Finally. Now someone feels up to answering his goddamn simple question that's been the exact same thing since he started asking. Jesus, was that so bloody hard?  For people who hate them so much, you'd think they would complain to their hearts content at every moment they can.get, rather than consider even the mention of their names taboo, bottling it up like some angsty teen that doesn't know how to express themselves except for lashing out.

 

Whatever damage the family did, they didn't do enough. Instead of violently attacking an innocent man like some savages, and condemn others by association (the sins of the father are not the sins of the son), all they had to do was answer the question of where they went, point him in the right direction, and he'd be on his merry way. But the way they all acted makes me wish the family had taken a giant shit explosive diarrhea in that village's drinking water supply.

They didn't tell him, it was someone else.

Aside from his own mother and sister, who seem to be a exception, it seems like this comic is saying men are much more likely to survive an environmental catastrophe than women, by merit of the ratio shown.

Maybe?

 

If the MC was female there's a 95% chance he'd be dead by now. There's no way he would've had the knowledge he does if he were raised as a female in that society, and the physical strength he has needed to survive. Fighting the bear or fending off the dogs could have easily meant his death were he weaker.

 

While women need to eat slightly less and can survive traumatic situations more often(such as plane crashes) they're physically weaker by a large margin, and considering the time period most of the women would have been housewives or that sort of thing, so the change to a rough lifestyle would be harder for them then someone like a blue collar worker who is used to labouring long hours. On top of that they would have a harder time escaping being trapped under rubble, building, digging, farming etc. as well as fighting and fending off animals, and also hunting them.

damn the cliffhanger...

"All right! I'll tell you! I'll tell you all of it! I'll tell you!

 

 

Find out on the next episode of Survival balls Z

I gave him five bucks, then he punched me in the nuts and ran away. Dropped his watch, though."

Remember it's a late 70's manga in a patriarchal Japan.

In a post apocalyptic world good shoes like those must be hard to come by, yet he ruined one so casually!
This is where I draw the line, that man must die.

not the shoes.... that t-shirt can withstand a apocalipse

ohh man cliffhanger.....

The creativity of the faces when Satoru comes to a new place never ceases to astound me. Pretty different from the generic faces in todays manga

 

I like the fact that the author doesn't use the stale huge-eyes-with-impossible-hair style. That's why I haven't bothered reading the remake. Looks so generic.

 

That said, you can always tell when a character is a main or a mook. The bad and good characters are pretty well-differentiated, too.

MC encounter group of assholes part 15661489.

it feels like the darkness from the situations changed since the first chapters, now its more against humans than nature still seems like a little bit lighter

I'm surprised Satou didn't give them the general direction of the village upriver; he did make a promise to return there someday after finding his family, and that's a better option than middling around for scraps in their own area any longer.

The character's sheer uselessness overshadowed everything else for me. She was literally less useful than the bear that tried to eat the MC.

She was jobbing so they could further showcase MCs will to survive and mental fortitude, haha...

At least she had some sex appeal.


I dunno, man, I can't for the life of me see how having a rack makes up for the other stuff. The character's sheer uselessness overshadowed everything else for me. She was literally less useful than the bear that tried to eat the MC.
