Now Akira and a few other survivors are trying to survive what seems to be a horrible nightmare.
Kenn's Comment: Been following this series for a while now, and boy, they don't have much time to catch their breath. It's always one thing after another, and, to my surprise, all the animals (or a good number of them) are from the Cenozoic era (though there were epochs and I'm not exactly inclined to check on those). The story isn't bad, lots of deaths (lots) and the like, but that's to be expected in this kind of story. An interesting point to note is that adults are useless in this story. There are maybe a handful that aren't, but the vast majority that the group encounters are either no better than the teens themselves or criminal in nature. Reading too deep, or is this sending a message?

Anywho, this isn't for the light hearted, as there is lots of blood, death, and vore (people being eaten). Also contains a good deal of fanservice (which is done pretty well imo).
