Scanlation team sure is on a roll~ Chapters 9-11 are out~
Its the return of psychopathic killer guy, and he really is a damn nut... His self molestation scene was disturbing to say at the least, was he actually inviting Shun... In anycase he and Shun seem to be quite connected to one another and looks like we can expect him to stick around for a long time. Their relationship so far has been interesting to say at the least with both understanding one another quite well. The new game is just as sick as psychopath's self molestation... Well this manga sure loves to push boundaries and buttons.

Cool chapters, they finished the rope skipping game and they were able to convince Amaya Takeru joining them. It was also very awesome that latter one finished the rope skipping game by his own. He basically killed those dolls
Those fountain cupids are definitely inspired on our manneke pis I wouldn't be surprised if the mangaka was lucky to visit this like a lot of Japanese do
Anyway, the game has been brought to a complete new level. I am just curious whether the guy playing on those controller is somewhat part of this huge "game". Well he is hijacking the wave signals but it could be very possible he is doing it against the aliens (?)

Oh man, I love this series. Found out about it through the weekly featured manga. I breezed through 11 chapters in no time; a couple hours. I'm very interested in where the story is heading. I'm always looking for series that are similar to Gantz and this most definitely is considering the game-like aspect and the brutality. If done correctly and the twists and turns keep up it may well pass up Gantz, in fact. I'm really loving all of the creepy, very awkward and unsettling creatures that inhabit each game; that was my favorite part about Gantz when it first began. It's all just so eerie and odd, coupled with the savage nature of each game thus far it's a wonderfully entertaining combination.
I'm already frothing at the mouth for more, I've been looking for more information on this series but I can't hardly find anything. Hopefully there'll be some more discussion here given this is my go-to manga forum. I'm silently rooting for Amaya; the guy is insane but this world is perfect for him, he can be of great use to the team (and has already). I just about ruined my pants when I saw him beat down those two dolls in the jump-roping game; that was just too badass. Completely defied the rules and said fukitol.
Cannot wait for more!
Hm chapter was interesting but the twist with the last opponents didn't really surprise me as much as the new game they would have. Its seriously twisted how this manga loves to screw over its characters, Kris for instance would probably be dead after being flung that far and landing on his head. As for the game with the turtle the problem is they already had kagome kagome the game most associated with the turtle, in case you're not familiar that is the guessing game they played at the hospital, so I'm coming up with a blank as to what traditional japanese game they'd be playing. Other game I can imagine which is associated to the imagery of a turtle is shiratori but... that doesn't follow the pattern of word play.
Given release patterns of the group I think we can expect a stream of new chapters soon.

Someone read the new Kamisama chapters? The group finally released two new chapters
So guys just bumping this since part 1 just officially ended and part 2 seems to be beginning on the 15th... I'm certainly shocked by the development not so much by the aliens but by the failure of Shun and Amaya, they seem to still be alive so I wonder how the two will end up surviving that fall. But the whole allegory of interpreting Icarus was well placed and executed beautifully. This manga continues to remain unpredictable and as a result constantly fresh not so much because of unanswered questions, though they are more or less answered in a sense, but because of the twists that continue to surprise everyone. I think Shun's idea of trying to kill god was adrenaline pumping as you can't help but wonder and cheer whether the two will pull it off since it caught god off guard in his assumptions. I worry more though for the members that remain after the stunt Shun and Amaya pulled off... We know how vicious and merciless kamimaro was so my heart kinda sinks at the idea of their friends, and Shouko's sis, being punished.
Definitely looking forward to part 2~.
Bumping this up.
Part II was released not a long time ago; Generally I'd say it's a good start. Wonder how long before this second part intertwined with the first, the first part was cool, like Hamy said, the ending pretty much worth your time.
I did not like the start of the second instalment though it was quite similar to the first part, neither did I like the characters in the beginning but the second part is growing on me recently. The Akashi isn't as cool as Shun and Ushimitsu isn't insane as Amaya but this might be part of their character development. They can't be copies of them and they have to be original.
It is nice to see that Kamisama showed up. This leaves opportunities for characters from part I to return.
Could some add a part I and II to the thread
I was trying to tell myself to not like the girl. It look to me as if death flag are flowing over both of the "couple" head
Just finished the first part. What an entertaining journey it has been 'till now. My favorite was the 'Oh yes!' part. Full of win on every page. Also enjoyed the occasional random weirdness like the girl being a total adrenaline hentai.
Don't know if I should start the second part. It's still ongoing and I'm following too many things right now.
lol at part 2 hate. not sure they're just bloodthirsty or something. but for me part 2 is great, not sure if better than part 1. but obvious one of most interesting series nowaday.
