Plot Summary
An accident happened. A train full of students going back from their field trip crashed and trapped in a tunnel. All of them died except for Teru, Ako, and Nobuo. They are trapped in the darkness, waiting for help that never came. Something big happened out there. An explosion that caused the giant earthquake. The only way to know is they have to find a way to get out of that tunnel. Nobua which is engulfed by fear of darkness turns into a madman and causing a lot of trouble.

They eventually manage to get out but everything was already destroyed. Many people died. No one know what really happened. Teru and Ako decided to go to Tokyo to find out. On their way there, they met survivors that has lost their sense because of the disaster. They bring out the darkness from their heart and turn themselves into monsters that are able to do the craziest and lowest things.

Personal Opinion
From the very beginning, the story is already thrilling. Being trapped in a tunnel as a sole survivor while everyone else died. Isn’t that interesting? ^-^

It talks about human basic fear. Fear of the darkness, fear of loneliness, fear of being helpless. Imagine how fear affected them. They lay in despair. They even slaughtered the whole town and performed massive suicide.

The art is great. Though it’s not the best, but it is able to make the readers imagine and feel about how worse the destruction is. Especially when they manage to get to the source of the disaster. You can feel how great the disaster was.

Personal Rating
7.5/10
