A group of people have been mysteriously transported into a structure filled with deadly monsters. When they awake in this dangerous place, they remember little beyond their names, but they each also have a 'trigger.' Their trigger grants them an individual ability that will help them navigate through the dangerous area.
Dan Hibiki wakes up and soon meets the telepath Hiiragi Sakura, radar-girl Misaki Haru, strong-man Kubo Taketo, and psychokinetic Fuse Yuuto. Dan's own ability seems to be to copy that of anyone he is near. They will have to work together strategically if they want any chance of getting out alive!Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.
Apollo ni Sayonara (アポロにさよなら)By:Demographics:
3 Chapters (Ongoing)Manga Details Page: HereTranslations: NoneScanlations: None
After the Earth was struck by a meteor, humanity began to move out into space, spreading across many different worlds. The GIS real estate company has an important job: finding people the homes that they desire across a variety of different planets.
The main character awoke after a serious illness and found that everything but his brain had been replaced by a mechanical human body. The trauma apparently affected his memory as well, and he couldn't remember who he was or where he came from. He had a frustrating sense, though, that he had a home he should go to and people who were waiting for him.
With no way to find them, he is passing the time as a GIS real estate agent. He and his colleagues take on cases from many different kinds of people, and he learns about their lives and their troubles as he helps them find a home of their own.Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

In a certain town, there are humans and various Japanese demons and spirits living near one another. There's also another unusual supernatural creature, Vlad the vampire.

Though he is a vampire, he does his best to protect the humans from other dangerous spirits. Sometimes, though, sad things happen that he is unable to prevent.Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
This week has some really good manga! I really liked Apollo ni Sayonara. It has an episodic structure, where the main character helps a new client each chapter, but also seems like it is gradually developing his story as well. Each chapter involves a different aspect of this future universe with its new technology and strange worlds. Kami to Yobareta Kyuuketsuki was surprisingly sad in the first few chapters, though it has the oddness of a vampire joining the Japanese pantheon. Abyss seems like its going to be a very strategic story, where the group has to analyze and solve each new situation they come to with the tools available to them. I liked the teamwork aspect of the story, even if the survival-game set-up is not all that original.
My opinion: Abyss
- If you're into survival games with powers, then you may want to check this manga out. Out of the three, this piqued my interest the most...Apollo ni Sayonara
- If you're into sci-fi and exploring different worlds, then this manga may be the one for you...Kami to Yobareta Kyuuketsuki
- If you like vampires and other supernatural elements, on the other hand, then you may be tempted to read this manga instead.Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
