pretty good story, with interesting insights in the psychology of the people that get stranded on an "island of death". However, the ending was too god**** sudden (apparently because a lack of popularity) and thus, too many things are never explained.
all in all, a good manga gone to waste because of the bad ending
Based on reading the first volume, Cage of Eden has a Hackneyed plot premise that reads like a 3rd rate "Lost" ripoff. I was bored and the characters were mostly uninspiring. The dinosaur chase scene was so predictable as to be completely unengaging. Will not be continuing this series.
cage of eden is a new spin on the jurassic genere.
Why should you read this manga
It has a survial theme that shows how complete strangers come together
and it also has some other minor themes like romance , horror , and Psychological
so bascically if you are a fan of lost are other survial shows this is a manga for you
In my honest opinion, this is a fantastic manga for Shounen readers! For many people, it might make you think of it as a mix between LOST and Jurassic Park, which isn't a bad thing. It has a great feeling of survival and mystery to it and you cna tell the romance progresses steadily. There is also a few comic relief characters in it that make the mood just right... for guys that is.
my first review!!!!
i choose this manga as my first review since i was in charge of translating a few chapters (most noticablly chapter 105, check on mangafox or baoto or our website http://www.deathtollscans.com)
anyway, that's enough advertising :P, let's get on with the review
i thought the story at the beginning is a bit crap... since it seems like a rip off of LOST, and repeat itself quite alot.
but then from chapter 100 onwards the story took a deep dive and introduced more elements of mystery, especially, the truth behind the island they stranded on. normally i would give it a 6/10, but im being a bit biased here coz i really like survival mangas.
i thought the art were top class, and that's the end for art review :P
moving on to characters, the character traits, i thought are pretty good even though they are a bit cliche- a couragous kid as a leader, a super clever kid, a semi-tsundere girl who's gonna get on with the main character, a girl who's a master at martial arts, a useless gril with big boobs... i shalln't go on.
and the character relationships i thought was spot on. now i would give examples, but then i wont be able to stop, and dont wanna spoiler the story too much for someone that's not up to date.
so overall, a 8/10 and a great series to work on and dont forget to like our scanlation group on facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/Death-Toll-Scanlations/284902774883434
