Rarely does an anime inspire me to start reading the manga it is based off of, but my favorite new show of this season has got me hankerin' for more!

Quote from: "Anime News Network"
On a typical day during a summer vacation, a group of 15 children discovered a mysterious man living in a seashore cave, along with his high-tech gadgets. The man claimed to be a game developer creating a video game with 15 giant robots defending Earth from alien invaders and asked those children to test the game for him. The kids agreed happily at first, but soon they began to find the game horrifying, not only because of its realism but also for the first fatality among them happened right after their first victory. Worse yet, they had no idea how to stop or leave the "game."


It is dark, twisted, angsty and tragic shit.  It's a serious read which focuses on the characters and may make you want to cry, go emo, or kill yourself.  This is a clever and bleak departure from the standard 'kids get mecha to save the world' archetype.  For a supernatural mecha, it is quite realistic, and I think that's a big reason why reading it affects me so much

Chapters 1-42 are scanlated and on MangaTraders
