My Quick Pick would be Doubt. I saw DocHaus and a few editors on this manga wiki page. I was curious why they liked this manga series. The cover art of the rabbits reminds me of Shiro of Deadman Wonderland - who I keep referring to my White Rabbit from Egypt Central's White Rabbit song. Upon reading the plot, it gives me a Gosick vibe where children are forced to play a deadly game for corrupted officials.
Rabbit Doubt-a mobile phone game-has taken Japan by storm. In it, players are rabbits who must uncover the wolf in rabbit's clothing before falling prey to its mistrust-sowing wiles...as well as its teeth. When a group of teen players decides to meet offline for fun, the last thing they expect is to lose consciousness and wake up trapped in an abandoned building, mysterious bar codes tattooed on their bodies, and a corpse strung up in front of them. To stay alive and find a way out, they have but one option-to sniff out the lying wolf in their midst. Will these virtual acquaintances be able to pull it together in the real world and figure out what's going on in time to avoid ending up as the wolf's dinner?
My pick for this time is "Is This a Zombie!?" because I just started out with reading it. So far, things are already bananas with Ayumu and the direction of where it's going is pretty entertaining, especially with him as a magus/magical guy. Yen Press just released their translation for vol. 4, so hopefully more craziness ensues.
After Eu disappears, Sera is down in the dumps and, thanks to bad seed Kyouko, Haruna transforms into a meowing machine! But damn it all, undead Ayumu's undying wish is just to see Eu!!
This week I wanted to choose an anime that I have not seen but want to, badly. Honestly, I don't understand the plot of Eden of the East but the animation is so appealing that it might just be enough for me to see the pretty pictures. The plot revolves around Akira who has this naked amnesia episode that has something to do with a terrorist attack. Anyways, like I said, the only reason I'm picking this is because of the animation. Anyone wanna tell me if this is good or not?
Akira Takizawa wakes up naked outside the White House with no memories. He’s got a gun in one hand, a cell phone in the other, and doesn’t know if he’s a good guy or one of the worst. He doesn’t remember the phone gives him instant access to ten billion yen and a woman who can make his most outlandish requests a reality. He doesn’t recall his connection to the ongoing missile attacks terrorizing the Japanese people. Or the part he played in the sudden disappearance of 20,000 shut-ins. He doesn’t even remember he’s supposed to save Japan and will be murdered if he fails. Whatever it is he’s tangled up in, Takizawa’s definitely in deep – and that’s not even scratching the surface.
