Shitsurakuen [Paradise Lost]

Post by depression76 on Wed Jun 20, 2012 9:46 pm


To quote off wikipedia

It follows the story of Himoto Sora, a transfer student with a sense of justice and dreams of becoming a knight. Upon arriving at Utopia Academy, she learns of a virtual reality-like game played by the male students in which they use girls as weapons in battles for status and treat them as commodities. Seeing one of these girls being abused, she steps in and unwittingly becomes the first female participant of the game.


It's one of my fave mangas two years ago. I like how Sora fight her way into the girls' hearts and gained their trust one by one, and the fact that it's also a fighting manga, with awesome weapons!, really draws a lot of fans too xD The first real ending to this manga SUCKS so bad that it discouraged me from reading till the end, and the 'reparation' ending that comes with the tonkoubon did nothing to salvage my lost respect at the author ^^;

But still though, this manga is a worthy one to read, and it's a whole load of new shipping universe here! My favorite was SoraxReiko...imagine my face when that ship sunk with the 2nd ending Natsuki Kruger2

Love it? Hate it? Post here and let me know xD

I remember reading this (too). Lol.

I really liked the beginning of this. The premise, as deppy stated, was very well done. Sora was the heroine of the story, giving hope to all the other females in the male-oppressive school they attend. But then the author had to ruin that with the ending. It was so bad! It turned me off reading the supposed "real" ending and I just stopped there.

Spoiler:
The oppressive males gave a half-hearted apology and all the years of opression those girls suffered just fucking dissipated. "Oh, you're sorry. Okay. Let's frolic in LALALAND!". What the hell was that?!"

Well, I spose there's always fanfiction. -_-;;

Believe me, I adored this manga, but the ending was so... abrupt and "failure zone". This is what put me off the most about it, I'd definitely recommend this to any yuri lover, just that they are ready for the random "HAPPY-HAPPY" ending.

It is obviously inspired off of Utena, any yuri fan can notice this as soon as they take a look at it. With the roses, school uniforms and such. "SAVE THE PRINCESS FOR I AM A PRINCE". Akira Okuzaki

Spoiler:
But still, I wish it had turned out differently, especially for Yuki to get some love too instead of being shoved to the side.

I really was enjoying this one until it's horrible down-fall....
I felt very disappointed...

Luckily the yuri ending kinda made it up. But I wanted more interaction of Sora with the girls....
And in all the endings I hated the fact that the girls were paired up with a guy... lame...

I liked the yuri-harem bit, and the weapon mechanic was obviously Utena... but then that ending... I couldn't even get to the very ending because I was so put off by the last bit of the manga. ^^;

Yeah, I know how you feel. I almost gave it up.
I'd had been purchasing all the volumes of the japanese manga (since I was liking the story) but then when I read that ending I was like: 'all my money wasted! T^T'

But the 'let's please the yuri fans ending just to save my reputation' ending made me keep them...

Lol. Yeah...

The ending is such BS. Not even counting the fact that the author completely nullified the yuri at the end. WHAT WAS HE THINKING?!

There's one theory out there that said that he chickened out due to the law that would be censoring many topics in different publications, especially manga.
Topics like extreme violence, sexual relationships, even romance in school (like those fluffy comedy romances).....
I'm not sure this is true...but when the manga was being published, this was a controversial topic there in Japan....
