Especially now that the storyline is showing more progress into the life of Fujimoto and learning more about what happens to government officials who begin questioning their job role and also what happens to “social miscreants”. The two stories are very interesting because as the previous episodes have dealt with how people deal with them receiving an ikigami but how they would live their final day, we are now starting to see the rebellious side of people who are against the immunizations let alone against the National Welfare Immunization program.
Meanwhile, Fujimoto meets with Dr. Kubo who begins questioning his loyalty to the National Welfare Immunization program.
There is so much fear in this alternate storyline of Japan of people afraid to speak out against it in fears that their life may be over, it’s interesting to see episodes that touch on this subject and to see where it will take Fujimoto in the next volume.
From Mase’s character designs and artwork to the overall storyline, this is definitely a manga series that is worth recommending. It’s a serious and compelling manga series but just so captivating to see how people deal with death. And definitely a unique storyline that anyone can get into and really enjoy.
“Ikigami – The Ultimate Limit” is highly recommended!
