Sabagebu! (Survival Game Club!)
What is this?
A comedy manga that involves a school's "Survival Game Club"; essentially, they train with non lethal Airsoft / BB / pellet weps and compete against fellow Survival Game teams. An older student named Miou recruits the new student, Momoka, to the group, but she and the gang get way more than they bargained for with her personality.
Why Should JNC get this?
It's hilarious. The characters' imaginations are whimsical, like Nichijou or Chio's School Road; the actions and reactions are exaggerated, sometimes movie parody-esque. The main character is also very bold, no nonsense, out for herself, which is refreshing compared to other female leads who are cute, helpful, or self-sacrificial. There's some borderline Shoujo Ai moments too.
It also has a mascot duck platypus thing. How can you not love that?
This Has An Anime?
Yes. A short 12 episode fare. There's some OVAs on the DVDs as well.
How Many Volumes?
13 volumes. It is a completed series.
Kodansha. Nakayoshi label.
This was one of the vey very very few anime to actually make me laugh so hard I actually fell from the chair I was sitting on.
I most definitely want to see it licensed so I can coutinue to see what wacky hijinks occurred for the Sabagebu.
...all that said I fully expect the odds of this LN ever getting licensed to be 0.00000000000000000001%
I requested this manga like 5 time already from Sea Seas, so I would love to see this get pick up.
oh god, I cried out of laughter when I watched the anime, I'd really like to read this manga!!!
The anime was fantastic, probably the best comedy I've seen, but 13 vol seem a little too long for that kind of serie. Nonetheless, i would love too try the LN.
