A simple premise but with proper buildup and a dark twist. I really liked it from what I saw in the raws but reading the first chapter has kept my interest for the rest of the story and how it will all unfold. 

 

Seems like it is getting positive reception online from nippon so hopefully it survives. I also really enjoy Posuka's art style.

Read it in the Shonen jump

I like the Premise, and has Premise.

Everything all happy, until the daily Exams....

 

 

Though, it doesn't seem like a typical first chapter and bring down some value for me.

 

Unless I have higher expectations, Typically First Chapter for upcoming series is similar to a One-Shot in terms of length of being a complete story, but also allows room for the following chapters. (First Chapter for mini series does not following this plan)

Here it just: Wah, we are not loved, we are just a human farm food. There are real Demon. Let Run away.

I see finding out the truth was the point, but wish they directed how they plan to escape more.

Such as why the Fence was a danger zone and possibily the escape path.

Very interesting story so far. Read the first chapter a few days ago and I just saw that the second chapter has been put up. I really liked what they did with the second chapter. You have this simple set up of a bunch of kids in an orphanage but they discover something very dark and sinister going on. Basically the life they thought they were living was a lie. So they give themselves a date to try and escape by but they are confronted with these obstacles and they have to get through them before they run out of time. That is just a good setup for a mystery/horror story. Then you get puzzle solving aspects with them figuring out how to get past these specific obstacles without getting caught and the bigger mystery of why all this is happening in the first place works well together. I don't know if this can be a really long series but I guess that all depends on what the world beyond the orphanage is like.

 

Also I have to say that the art really makes this series a lot more creepy that it otherwise would feel. The art style is very cute and when you see some of the horror elements it is really unsettling. Also this does feel like a very nontraditional series you would see in WSJ. So it is nice to see them try a different type of series.

I didn't expect that I would get an interest in this story that take place in an orphanage in which the   main charaters are kids, But when  they dared to  go  to that forbidden place and found the  body of the little girl and those "demons" along with their " scary mom" who is working with the monsters is when the story became interesting.

 

In the second chapter, hidding their emotions the way they did  was amazing even though we haven't seen Ray that much in this chapter. I also like how they are questioning a lot of things  like their mother motives or the reason behind the tests.

This is pretty interesting. Not exactly the most original premise ever, but it's well written and the details are interesting. Since they're in the year 2045, there could be some sci-fi component to the demons too.

However, if Mama started out the same way as the children, she's been there for at least 30 years, so I guess this has been happening at least since our present day. Wouldn't surprise me if the plot was something like "the 2011 earthquake brought up demons from hell, and 34 years later, they rule the world" or so.


 

Though, I'm sure Norman's ass is gonna get killed.

 

Or he becomes Daddy. But he's on the Jump-coverpage, so I guess he'll be a main character.

I don't think a manga has actually pulled off a jump scare on me like that before.

Any idea about the survey part? didn't know english shonen jump can fill out survey.

Me think scans stopped until it on English jump again

Chapter 7

 

XYZ (can't spell it otherwise >_>)... Satan?


 

Also interesting how the demon's table and room are made up of gears, I wonder if that is just a design-choice or is important.
