X-Day

.....Wow.

Has anyone read this? It's fantastic. *_*

Quick summary: Rika meets 3 classmates in a chatroom, who hate school as much as she does. They hatch a plan to blow it up when no one is present.

It's replaced Chobits as being my #1 favorite manga. Of course I'm being a bit bias since I can relate to it on a personal level (Polaris -- her life is like an exact replica of my high school days -- needless to say, she's quickly become my favorite character ever). Plus it has all the little bonuses I like in manga: Closer-than-close student-teacher relationships (don't ask, I just love it), EGL ( ), and all this secretive scheming to blow up the school makes me wonder if they actually do blow up the school in the end.

Ohh but I love it XD. I finished it last night and it had me awake most of the night, thinking about what's to come. If anyone is as in love with with X-Day as I am, we should collaborate for some X-Day cosplay. ^.^

FINALLY! I thought I was gonna have to start this thread! ^_^

This manga is AWESOME! Great drama and angst with little humor here and there. I can't wait for vol. 2! And it's also a short series, so it won't dent my wallet too much. ^_^

How long is the series going to be?

Anywho...I thought it was awesome too! I mean it kept me in and made me want more..!! I felt like I could relate to Rika. But my favorite character in there is Jangalian or Mr. Katano...I find it interesting that he'd want to blow up the school.
That's a cool idea for cosplaying...
Must read more...! >_<
Manga are just getting more and more interesting aren't they?

I absolutely LOVE X-Day. ;_; Sad it's such a short series. I can't find many web page's (Even tried Polaris's Url). Any one know of a good X-Day site?

I've only done a wallpaper of Polaris (Nanaka).

I was thinking that too. ^_^ I'm taking a Cine class this semester. Our final project is to make a movie of our own. May use X-Day as the core concept for mine--fanfilm. ^.^

Someone should turn Polaris's URL into the actual site as seen in the manga. XD

That would be cool to see an actual Polaris' Room.
I got vol. 1 on Friday, and I ended up rereading it again that night.

Wow. 2 volumes is short.. at least it'll only be a short wait until the second one comes out.

Vol. 2 comes out in October. So the wait is a bit long, but not too much.

I agree with you Velvy. It won't take long for someone to do a website just like Polaris lol. The Gothic Lolita girl is cute too. Yeah, it would make a wonderful short film lol

I love this manga! I looked at it at the bookstore about 5 times before I finally said to myslef 'JUST BUY IT!' Turns out to be totally worth it, I love it. Definitly a favorite now. I have read it over and over. Can't wait for the next instalment

I read that X-Day was only two volumes on some random site. Where did everyone else see that? I was looking for X-Day webpages and that when I found out it was two volumes. Not too many pages about it. TokyoPop website doesn't actually say how many volumes it is. And it doesn't say the 2nd book is the final one. Short series are good but I think that is cutting this one a little TOO short! Don't you think? I mean There is a lot more character development left. I am a bit disappointed. I really wanted to see some of these relationships build.

Of course no matter what I am still gonna love it! haha ^^

If you make a film about it, put it online! I'd DL it for sure!

I agree. 2 volumes is insanely short, especially for a story such as this that centers around characterization more than plot.

Ah, I adore this manga too! Can't believe it's only 2 vols. After reading the first one I have no clue how it'll be able to wrap up in just one more. It's so nice to see a character development central story. And the characters are very original for manga, I think, too.
