This actually sounds pretty interesting. But I'm wondering how far they can take this in a shonen magazine? Hope the horror and psychological aspects aren't toned down any.

This looks pretty interesting but I do wonder how long it can work out. Two people (or three?) have fallen and they have died. So only one can survive but that would mean the rest of the characters wouldn't have an input for a later story.

Well, let's see what it'll bring. It's interesting and mysterious enough for me to keep reading it

I like they way Tatsuya tells his girlfriend to calm down and secretly wants everyone to fall because he wants to be the last one remaining. I do think the girlfriend will be saved despite this. The rules state that game will stop when there is one remaining. Just like when the little girl swung to her dad, I think Tatsuya will use the same strategy to save his girlfriend. 8.1? I want to find out the meaning behind this soon.

Re: [NEW] 8.1 Yamada Yusuke Gekijou by Yamada Yusuke & U.G.E

interesting story. I guess the manga is a bit different in that there doesnt seem to be a main protagonist... or maybe we will see one? Still not sure how long it will last on the legs of "lets see who survives on this theme park ride" until the FBI/Police/news come knocking on the doors.

Chapter 2 shows that this series has potential. Things are just beginning. Plus it was sorta sad.

This series is kind of weird. The first chapter had very weird pacing and didn't feel like a first chapter at all. I really don't know how this series will continue. It has a good idea, but the execution is strange.

And what is up with the art? Its pretty good, but it looks like it was done digitally as if the author used a pen tablet. Traditional methods would probably help the art look a lot better. Either that or the person who cleaned the scan used way too many effects.

I thought some time about the title.And i think that 8.1 means that there always will be 8 players and only 1 will survive(I dont remember how many players were at the beginning).
Anyway,I like the series and i can`t wait for next chapters and more games:)
