    This series has had a pretty strong start so far. The beggining isn't anything new but the the story has the potential to go in many different directions. Even though it is a shonen the concept is very seinen like. Forba series filled with young children it is quite mature. They use a lot of tactics and it doesn't seem to be the kind of series were the main character is better than everyone else. Instead of fighting this series draws us in with strategic wit which is not quite common for a shonen. The main charaters are quite smart for a change. This is the only brand new series that I have been following. I'm quite hyped for the new arc. Things are really starting to get serious.
    @menma are you still reading it?

    Yes i'm still reading this manga, it is one of the more interesting new mangas that WSJ is publishing these day! As you said so far it doesn't feel anything like a typical shonen and i falled for it after 3 chapters!

    I agree with you, it is definitely quite interesting and I fell for it in about the same time or less. It is definitely under the radar. I love it as well

    I have been following this manga lightly. Got introduced to it through Manga Stream.

    Not going to go full throttle with it till more chapters come in. It does look quite promising though.

    This looks quite interesting, I'll wait for more chapters before I decide if I'll read it or not.

    Who is that guy and is he sending the kids some hints on what the out side world is with his books? Interesting .. Those two kids might get caught and make trouble for everyone by going to secret room.

    For starters i loved the color page, i really enjoy the artists drawing style.

    It sure is interesting just who that guy is and if he is still alive,
    Have a feeling that Don and Gilda will mess up with their plans of escaping.
    Must admit i still don't completly know where Ray is in all this and what exactly is his motives, i feel like he is still hiding things from Emma and Norman
    Overall a really nice chapter and looking forward to seeing what the future will bring.

    On a side note, this manga seems to be getting good TOC rankings which is nice, now we just need to see how the first volume sells xD

    This was a nice chapter,
    Must say how Emma noticed the morse code was a bit insane, and how she even thought of it is beyond me.
    I have a feeling that what he want them to do is actually read those two books and the hidden message will be in there somewhere.
    Don and Gilda seems to be doing there own things from now on, i think the author really describe their desperate situation perfectly, and i love how he display the trust issues in this chapter.

    Really enjoyed this chapter, and looking forward to see what is happening next!

    For sure, if it takes over 30 chapters for the escape to start, that'll be a drag. They've been hyping up for a while now
