Hold on a moment, friend.
If you get really mad about racism, gross things, comic gore, and general offense,
this series really might not be your cup of tea.
The weak of heart won’t do well here.
“But these tears were different.
It’s as if a screaming pain inside me that had been locked up a long time ago had finally busted out by using my tear ducts as its escape route.
And when it finally got out, it shouted…
‘You don’t deserve this.'”
Wait a second!!!
Gakkou Gurashi! is best read knowing as little as possible going in. I don’t mean “the twist of chapter 1 must not be spoiled!” or anything, just that, seriously, the less you know the better. It’s a series that really gets you thinking a lot, and you don’t need my thoughts getting in the way of yours. In light of that, right here is gonna be a mini-review for anyone skeptical as to why I’m recommending the series, while the rest of this article is for those who remain unconvinced, or for people who are already reading the series. Gakkou Gurashi! is a zombie apocalypse/slice of life psychological and survivalist drama manga that I seriously consider to be a masterpiece…for a good while. After that while, it isn’t as good (to put it lightly). I really think everyone should read “part 1” of this series, though, because it’s beautiful and so good in so many ways. After you do? Read it again, closely, and then if you still want more, cautiously step beyond. If all you need is my word to try a new manga, go try it out now. Whatever you do, though, don’t watch the anime. Don’t even look it up; it’ll actually ruin a few things for you.
