Onwards to part 2! Now, the text after the cut continues directly from the end of part 1, so I’d recommend re-reading it first.
Oh, and in addition to the previous spoiler warnings, I’m adding another one concerning an important character in Victor Hugo’s novel Les Misérables, Inspector Javert. (more…)

Those of you with a grasp of Japanese may notice that the English title isn’t a very accurate translation. The Japanese is closer to “Advancing Titans”, and that’s also a much, much better description of what the story’s been about so far.
Manga I am a Hero, Manga, Single post review
So. Speaking of zombie fiction, I just read a zombie manga, I am a Hero that’s surprisingly well constructed. One of my issues with zombie fiction is people failing to take into account how zombies function. They might learn some factoid (like the popular “zombies are attracted to noise”) and there might be a scenario where people even use that to their advantage, but then they forget about it again. Here, people seem to learn and carry forward those lessons. Also, these zombies are actually a lot less predictable than the standard ones, so they’re far harder to deal with.
