i just love it <3

Will there be omake chapter in last tankobon?

Seeing as it'll have more chapters then normal I doubt it.. but I'm still hoping for one :P !

 

I dont care if anyone would be revived and I dont see how that would define an axed ending or not. The ending is still nice in my opinion.

Yeah... Dragonball did it and look how they're doing :P ! Magical dragonballs... Algorithm of Destiny... what's the diff ?

Bleh, your typical axed ending. Would've been more satisfying if they had revived everyone that had died along the way.

Welcome to Not Alive 2. After five years in development, hopefully it will have been worth the wait. To listen to a commentary node, put your crosshair over the floating commentary symbol and press your primary fire. To stop a commentary node, put your crosshair over the rotating node and press your primary fire again. Some commentary nodes may take control of the game in order to show something to you. In these cases, simply press your primary fire again to stop the commentary. Please let me know what you think after you have had a chance to play. I can be reached at mikamis@nyansoftware.com, and my favorite class is Cat Paws. Thanks, and have fun!


Amamiya Kyouko was one of the cutest waifu's I've ever seen. I found this series because of Aereus's avatar; it was lying in my follows since then and only recently I have finally got to read the manga.
My only regret is that I didn't read this sooner, my time with Kyouko was way too short.

The next day I had to see the school psychologist, because people were worried about my mental state after reading that story.

And then your school had to get a new Psychologist because... well we don't talk about what happened to the old one :3

Would've been more satisfying if they had revived everyone that had died along the way.

 

Funny, because that's exactly what I hate in a story.

Not that I like seeing characters die, but reviving people is like laughing at the readers for all the tears they may have shed for the victims.

 

I hate revival endings so much that I once wrote a story about it for a school competition.

It was about someone losing their closest friend and going on a journey to find a magical artifact to resurrect them.

It ends with the protagonist's despair after finding the artifact and realizing that it had been overused centuries ago and become unusable as a result.

 

I even won a price with that story.

The judges said they liked how I portrayed the protagonist's feelings when the friend died; they disliked how I telegraphed the ending when the protagonist set off to find the artifact; and they absolutely loved how I completely smashed all their expectations with the unexpected ending.

Bleh, your typical axed ending. Would've been more satisfying if they had revived everyone that had died along the way. Some of them were actually enjoyable and didn't deserve what they got in the end. Especially maze, sure she was cheating, but she got screwed royally. 

ugh. Still a crummy ending. Don't get me wrong, the overall story is hella good, but most mangateers just have this darn issue with ending the manga on a good note. Why not have the two kiss or something, they're were building up that relationship for hella mate.

ALL I WANTED WAS  BLOODY KISS AND I LOVE YOU WHY IS IT SO HARD WHYYYYYYYYY 

Well they get married... does that count?

The cover for volume 10 has been released.

Spoiler

It feels really special to see another series come to a close

This ending gave me a very... SAO-prequel like feel to it. Was alright.

 

Enjoyed it nonetheless. Will look forward to the next work of the author.

It's a little sad to see it's over. I feel like it did get a little bit lax in the end, plot threads avoided or forgotten in some instances, but I do like the way it ended. All in all, I really did enjoy this one. 

thanks for the series, author and waterflame scans!

Thanks for the scanlations, Waterflame!

First of all that was some ride and I think it's awesome that they turned the game into something enjoyable. However, I would like to give thanks to Waterflame scans as I've been following this series ever since they picked it back up in 2012. Then they seem to have shelved it until this year, so I would like say thanks for not dropping this and finishing it even after so long of not touching it.

Umm... we started working on this series July 4th 2015 not in 2012... But thank you none the less :P

Still a bit confused by how they brought her back to "life"? I enjoyed the series overall but the ending left me wanting something different.. Maybe a shorter timeskip, Mikami looks like an old man and Kyouka still looks like she's a grade schooler. 

Basically when Not Alive fell apart she was still suck in the Sandbox(you know a place you'd put viruses) so by recreating the game and then by having her brother do the same thing (play the game with the algorithm they were able to break the game allowing them to once again like in the main story access the Sandbox) hence how they were able to get her back. 

And so it ends. Thanks for all your work, waterflame!

Quite cocky of him to claim he "created" the game, when all he did was remove permadeath from it...

 

That aside, it's nice to see the author didn't completely forget about the childhood friend.

 

If I recall correctly he wanted to study how the game worked so he could make an better game but hell he might of gone the ALO arc way :P Take the base code of SAO. Change a few things and call it a new game :3

 

mah rcon scene where he cheats ;(

maybe he hasn't had the experience of using server remote control, could've been better, but i still see this being animated in the next 10 years

Well it wasn't very popular... It didn't even get a mention on the cover of the final issue. But if it get's an anime more not lives the better :P

Well, it was a pleasure to follow this manga so many years. Thanks to the mangaka and Waterflame Scanlations for everything.
