This week for Sensate Saturday I’m covering a less well known series. It’s Area D Inou Ryouiki by Nanatsuki Kyouichi!
Plot Synopsis: The “prison survival action” story is set after the sudden emergence of special powers in certain pockets of humanity. To deal with these so-called “Altered,” a mysterious remote island prison named “Area D” was built.
Plot: The plot is pretty freaking serious and pretty gory as well. It definitely fits the Horror genre in my opinion, although more for shock factor than anything else. I won’t spoil it but I’ll just say that in the first chapter I nearly gagged.
Characters: Jin is the main character, and he’s a pretty bad ass guy. The rest of the cast is great, although Ida is my favorite of the bunch.
Art: The art in this series fits it perfectly. It’s definitely not something for kids.
Overall: If you can stand the gore, it’s pretty good.
For those who like: Action, Violence, Gore, Drama, Excellent Plot, Fantastic Cast of Characters, Great Artwork.
Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
