Scientists had predicted this disaster, and in response, the leaders of every country met to develop a plan for human survival before the meteor hit. The Seven Seeds project was developed out of this meeting. Each country froze a number of young healthy people, which allowed them to survive the meteor. After the computer determined that Earth was once again safe for human life, it released them into the world.

The Japanese government created five groups of survivors: Winter group, Spring group, Summer group A, Summer group B, and Fall group. Each group consisted of seven members and one guide. The guide carried small tubes of poison on their necks to allow them to end their lives if their situation became unbearable. The Japanese government prepared seven “Fuji” as refuges for the groups. In each Fuji, the group would find seeds and numerous books instructing them on survival in the wilderness.

This is actually a typical shojo manga. It is about a popular boy with a dark past and a cute girl, who is in love with him. I like to read this manga, when I need some time to come down after university.

You won’t believe where their journey takes them …

I love this manga. The story is really unique and intressting. You never get bored also the characters are also very very loveable. It is a story about trust and friendship, about love and hate.

On her 16th birthday, the unlucky, unmotivated and good-for-nothing Odagiri Yume saves the high-classed and lovely Momo, who claims to be the Devil.

Yume confesses her wish to become special and Momo grants it: she makes Yume the representative of the earth!

From now on her sixteenth birthday until her eighteenth, Yume has to give Momo seven good reasons as to why the earth shouldn’t be destroyed.

The countdown for the destruction of the world has begun and only Momo can stop it.

This manga is a typical shojo. The drawings are cute and the story is really nice. The heroine is not one of this cutsy-dummy-naive ones. As a shojo, it is nothing special, it is rather fun to read.

I am a huge manga/manhwa fan and I love to read. I thought I could make a blog about the manga I read and recommend them to others.

My first language is not English, sorry for the mistakes :)
