hmm, Limit does seem like a Lord of the Flies rip, but because of that I'm interested to see how that goes. Besides, high school is a more trying time than childhood, I guess. And the fact that they're all girls makes it more interesting, since I think girls are more viciously competitive than boys.
The fact that the characters are indeed female, does make it quite interesting. It's not all macho barbre and dancing around a fire after one kills a pig - it's deeper and more psychological.
As you said, girls are more vicious then guys at that age. They can be very catty, vindictive and form cliques that exclude others for silly things. Not saying that guys can't be the same way, but they are a little more tame and don't hold grudges as long. They tend to 'duke it out' and then thats the end of it.
I have only read the first two volumes (up to chapter 7) and there was an interesting cliffhanger at the end... hopefully, I'll have the time to read the next couple of chapters soon. :3
I've read up to the newest chapter that this group of scanlators put together-I don't know if this has been licensed or not yet, but I doubt it since there are still scanlations around-and I read up to chapter 11. Very addicting! Extremely good! I suggest it.
I really like this series. It has a lot of potential, so I just hope it doesn't go in the same direction as her last series ("LIFE") did, in which, although it started off as a realistic take on a teenage girl experiencing troubles in her life, by the end it was just a ridiculously crazy mess.
As someone pointed out, it's really unique in that it's an all female cast (well..at first anyhow) so it brings along a whole new angle. I really look forward to where this series heading!
