I think an anime adaptation could definitely work. Like I said before, the weakest link to this manga is easily got to be its visuals, so getting some extra visual flair from a talented anime studio would definitely make for a fantastic product. I'm sure it will continue if they escape though. Saving the world from those monsters isn't going to be easy so it's not like there won't be anything to write about after that. Plus they're setting up that William Minerva guy to be a character and I don't think they'll meet him in person before escaping. My personal guess is that they will all get caught escaping and everyone will die except for Norman, Ray and Emma who will be allowed to serve the monsters due to their unparallelled talent and intelligence and will secretly mount a new plan to free all the humans. I admit that serving the monsters even as a facade isn't completely in character for Emma, but that's what I would do if it was me doing he writing.


The anime has to be more than 12 episodes. Otherwise it could get rushed and/or have important parts cut out, depending on the studio.



It's a hot new series from the single most popular manga magazine so I'm sure it'll get itself a decent length.


Yeah I know. What I'm saying is that the first season should have more than 12 episodes. I'm sure the length of the anime will be longer.

Just read the available chapters in two days (could've been one but I go online at night and I gotta sleep). Oh my gosh this manga!! I was so worried and then things happened... and then... that and...

This manga is the complete opposite of almost all stories made in the country I live in. Here, for the show/story to be prolonged or get interesting or dramatic, the main characters would have to do the dumbest thing or be naive and be almost completely oblivious to the bad guys plans or whatever. This manga? Everyone is smart so it makes the show interesting. The plot itself is the reason the story is still going on and you'd love the characters enough to make it sad when bad things happen. I love this so much. I the story stays with this quality of storytelling because this is really good.

Next chapter please!

My pet hate is when a story nails a brilliant twist, and someone claims they saw it coming all along. Episode 33 is one of the best twists I've seen for a while

On the contrary, it's great when a story nails a fake twist, someone claims they saw it coming all along, and you know they'll be proved to be a liar in the next episode . The comments in the Re:Zero anime thread in the third loop of the mansion arc
when you know that in the fourth loop

Ugh, I was right about not liking the way they brought Ray back. It's so forced and contrived. The end of the last chapter was presented as a clear unbroken sequence of events and now this chapter retcons it into including a timelapse. That's surprisingly lazy for this story and I hope it's the only time it does something like that. It isn't helped by the fact that the art in this chapter is pretty subpar, and the par for this series was already on the low side. I especially hated reading the sequence where mama looks for Ray and Emma. I felt completely disoriented and confused, never knowing what the hell part of the house she was in or even if she was going in he right direction.

Also, was it really necessary for the kids to cut the entire back portion of heir ears off? I dunno, it seems to me like the tracker was only in the lobe.

Your really going to take the chance that someone can track you down and kill you just because you want a little more of your ear? I don't think your looking it though their eyes. I'm not taking the chance that I might get the tracker out when I get it a 100 percent chance that it's out.

But they already knew the tracker was in the lobe only. And if they were scared that wasnt the case then why not cut the entire ear off?

Thinking to hard man. Just easier also they are still kids no matter how smart they are I don't think they think that far a head. Also I don't think the artists would want to draw that every single time.

I thought it was a pretty cool way to do it, but it's the kinda thing we'll just have to agree to disagree on.

As for the trackers, they are not in the lobe.



The tracker is located in the back of the scapha/antihelix (and I reckon location could vary slightly).

Something that far towards the back end of your ear will be quite difficult to cut out on your own, and it's far enough back that even the best solo cut you could do would take off most of your ear. If you're in a rush, chopping off the whole outer portion of your ear just makes sense.



All that being said, is no one going to bring this up?



Edit: Well, I guess I can't upload pics for some reason. You can see the shot of the ear in chapter 7.

Ah okay. I must have remembered wrong then. I'm not sure exactly what you're referring to in the spoiler tag though. It's an interesting reveal but it's not very unexpected.

I didn't see a reason to expect it.

Man, for some reason I can see my spoiler picture in your quote but not in my own post

There's a glitch now where whenever you upload a picture a rabdom $ will be added to the crimg code which you have to go and erase before the image becomes visible. And I don't see why you wouldn't expect it. There aren't very many children at the orphanage and there aren't many other orphanages so it's not a big shock to learn that only 2 kids at a single orphanage have reached their full potential as food currently.
