Beginning on the 4th day after a zombie virus broke out, this is a story about the will to live, human instincts and our selfish desires. A thrilling tale about the survivors of a zombie apocalypse.
NOTE: Review has been written on 22-May-2015 and uses the first 34 chapters as scource. EDIT: After the comment by RoyalOss for a better reader experience Well, before I start rambling on a quick note:If you do not like zombies, then just carry on and don't even read this review any further... It's a manhwa about zombies wheter you like it or not. Now that I got that out of the way let's start the review. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Story: This manhwa is a true rollercoaster ride wich throws you in all direction. Better yet, let's call it a bumper kart ride (Yeah, that fits better. Although, the story also throws you for a few loops... I'm already rambling, aren't I? Sorry about that). The story starts off in a different place than most zombie stories. Whereas normal stories usually begin with the outbreak. Dead Days starts off at 4 days into the outbreak. Zombies litter the streets and we're introduced to our main protaganist, a young (High School) male, who is starving in his room because his turned mother is scratching the locked door. Here he meets a (of course) girl of his age who is trying to survive and call for help on the apprtment building across the street. They figure out a way to comunicate and find comfort in each other while they wait for rescue. From here on the story progresses... (which I won't spoil). To be honest, at first I didn't really like the narrative, but after a few chapters I started to grow into it and see the capabilities of the writer. The story progresses mostly by the thoughts of any character in the series and started to make me feel connected to almost everyone. When this happened I almost coudn't put it away anymore! I needed to know what would happen to [...] and [...]. But... Having said that. It is still a pretty basic zombie appocalypse story (until now) and it only nets a 7/10 from me. Art: I have read enough manga and manhwa to be able to know a good art style. And this is a complete step up from the normal drawings. The attention to detail is stunning! Everyting is used in this manhwa from shading to actual correct amounts and (yes) even consintency of the blood. It all just feels so real whenever something happens. Because I don't know really much about 'art' or 'drawing', I'll leave it here with a 8,5/10 for making me believe what happens. (BTW: I Love the drool) Characters: Here is where the story really shines. From the first capter every new character introduces will be introduces properly. After a while the story progresses to emcompass multiple characters and gives everybodies background a thorough look. This helps to set a tone of familliarty and understanding for their actions. This story has his typical young hero, a maiden in distress, an old wise man and (of course) a mentally deranged bad guy. But that's just the surface layer! Any character has his or hers specific actions, but the underlying information really gives an insight. Thanks to the narrative trough everybodies mind it is possible to keep a stble connection with almost anyone. The characters get a round 9/10 for the fantastic inner thoughts. Overall: I rate this an overall of 8.2/10 The settings, art and character motives really bring a nice whole experience. True, the scanslation can be a bit hard to follow at times, but that is not the manhwas fault. But you'll only have this problem on conventional manga websites like mangareader and mangapanda. If you go to webtoons you'll be able to read this gorgeous thing in the way it was intended! I hope anybody (yes, even you reader) can enjoy this captivating story untill the end! *please don't get axed...please don't get axed...please don't get axed...please don't get axed...* This is Toyplay, Signing out! Never Let Go of the Fun!
I will write a short review on this manhwa, it started from good premises and also with a fairly good initial part, but then it becomes cosmic nothingness, the characters do not understand what they wanted to do, the story is unknown where it was headed, and the ending I found very inconclusive for such a manhwa. Put simply a real disappointment, I recommend not wasting time reading this manhwa.
