The manga is actually based off a light novel, all of which are available to read here (http://re-monster.wikia.com/wiki/Re:Monster_Wiki). The light novel is much farther along than the manga so if you would like to spoil the series for yourself by all means, the choice is yours. But for those of you who like to just follow along at the pace that the manga is being churned out there are currently about 19 chapters available to date. Fair warning, there can be some very dark and adult related themes within the story.

Perhaps that is why I love this manga so much! I personally love RPG games, especially those of the fantasy variety and the fact that the art is very appealing is a plus. Also, this is the kind of manga that is very easy and light reading which is great for when you are looking to get away from serious or deep-thinking mangas without having to steer towards shojo-ish material. It’s a fun read.
