Yeah, the ending did not explain anything and it definitely seems like a rushed work. Perhaps the author could work on some spinoff to mention what happened to Hades and Arita because it seems that they did nothing in the 3 years. I can accept the ending as long as there isn't so many loose ends. Nothing has been explained about time travel or the sort, I can only imagine that the whole thing was just Akira mother's dream.

The only thing i liked was how everyone looked after the time skip. This manga was really good, but the ending sucked.

I agree with everyone else, the manga was great but due to the money hungry bosses they cancelled it. The only hope for this series is if they revive it, the ending was left open if you have read Yamada sensei's other manga "EX - Shounen Hyouryuu" there could be a chance for the ending being more like that one.

I hope the mangaka eventually comes back with a follow-up series =.= even if its a one-shot anything to expand on what happens to them.

Perhaps if they do an Anime, they can redo the ending and fill the plot holes.

Honestly, ever since I started reading the series I figured the ending could go in literally any direction, even one such as this.
Especially with how they crashed, (invisible beak WUT), and how Akira was nowhere near the plane after the crashed..
It's obviously not a satisfying ending, but it's better than REBORN's ending, for sure..

Welp, what's next out of my favorites to be canceled? Probably Medaka Box..

What I think and feels like it is that the popularity of the series dropped significantly when the later story lines started to drag and eventually was given the death sentence by the publisher, which made the fact that they announced it would end in 5 chapters seems out of the ordinary given the plot point it came up at.

Well the author is already working on a completly new manga so the chance of a pick up is moderately low I do want this to continue it would be nice to continue it with a survival type situation taking place in japan.

Well, after they faced the Chimeras & Nishikiori, all they had left to do was go to the final tower.
If the popularity dropped, it's probably because they stopped running into dangerous animals at that point.
I have a feeling that if they ran into more creatures when dealing with Nishikiori, and on their way to the fourth tower, the series wouldn't have been axed.

If the series was indeed canceled, we were probably less than 20 chapters away from the real ending anyhow..

I agree with flack, what i loved about the series was the suspense from the unknown creatures, then it just sorta dropped when they were no new creatures, and just exploration of the towers, and like others stated above, they should make an anime and re-do the ending

Haha okayyyy....Am I the only person that doesn't think they got "sent into the future" at all? Seems pretty obvious to me given the theme of the entire island, and the involvement of Akira's mother in the project that from the very beginning their plan was to create copies of the precious people that were killed in the crash? Maybe I'm totally insane but I'm pretty sure that everyone on that island was a cloned copy of the victims of that plane crash - and the whole creating extinct creatures thing was more of a pretext or coverup for their work on human cloning. It's pretty obvious that Yuna's whole reason for living was her son - she completely falls apart after his disappearance. Pretty sure nothing but the promise of having her son back would get her so motivated.

Why else would Akira's mom get involved in the first place? Old man Isuragi and Yuna just wanted the technology to recreate the ones they loved. What's more likely? Them being rocketed 100 years into the future and making a miraculous crash landing on the very island that Akira's mom created in memoriam to her missing son with EVERY single passenger surviving and the plane totally intact? OR that they were cloned on the island, placed on an identical plane and meant to "wake up" as if they had just crash landed. One of the students even mentions how the tubes they found in the underground lab were newer than the rest of the equipment, which would go along with the theory of them having just been created. Sure, there are no humans around that could have completed the process - but there was that one robot left before it was destroyed that probably could have completed operations. I'm also pretty sure that Hades was a failed clone of Akira - (it's obvious he's been on the island for a while, he has the same hair as Akira, and he seems to know alot about how Kouhei would react when it comes to his friendship with Akira - and he's wearing a school uniform) He probably didn't come back the same as the original Akira (evil), he may even have released the biohazard on all the researchers after finding out that he was a clone and that they were planning on attempting the cloning process again to achieve better results. Also the first time he confronts Akira he mentions how everyone everyone on the flight is going to die, and how it can be done without fail, suggesting that they've all died before at least once. (either in the original plane crash, or after having been cloned)

Of course there's tons of speculation with this theory but it seems to fit the theme of the manga more than time travel does. There's really nothing hinting at time travel whatsoever. They're in the future, but of course they are - it took nearly a century to complete the island and perfect the dna cloning process.

OMG you are the first person on any board that I have read that gets it. I even signed up just to agree with you on this theory. The whole Isuragi and Yuna arc they showed was a flashback of how Rakia Island came to be.

The plane crash I am still a bit iffy on an explanation but my thinking is the clones all had their old memories implanted into their heads when they were created and all "awoke" when the plane "went down". Which fits with the whole pilot saying they shouldn't have been able to land the plane. Whether or not the plane actually did crash or it was some elaborate setup to release the clones into the wild I'm not sure. It could also be that the plane was just sitting on the ground the whole time and like everyone was in stasis until the bird beast bit into the plane waking everyone up and that all their memories of the plane "crash" were memories of the real crash of the original kids. This might explain the half faded coin that Yarai was flipping in chapter 1 pg 20.

If they made this an anime it would probably be as popular as attack on titan is now. If the directors are good anyway.
