The story is getting more and more interesting, and not as much crazy fan service as the first volume. I bought 3, 4, 5, & 6 so I got more volumes to go. This 2nd volume is definitely worth the rest of the series.

Saki and friends' first venture beyond the barrier turns deadly when they go too far and get caught in a war between Morph Rat tribes. But an even more sinister danger is lurking somewhere else...

This continues to be a very odd but compelling series. It has a fair number of issues in presentation and execution, but it's so unique and the story so intriguing I'm thoroughly hooked. The tone and pacing are different here, as the in-your-face fanservice sections from volume 1 are absent (except of course for the gratuitous cover). The dialog is often long and a bit clunky. At the same time there seems to be information and/or context missing here and there, mostly regarding the featured romantic relationships. The plot moves at a breakneck speed. Only two volumes in and there have already been numerous major revelations, shocking twists, and shifts in the story.

All that said, it's all fascinating and the underlying concepts and mysteries engrossing. The tension is kept incredibly high and despite trepidation over what awaits our protagonists I desperately want to know.

I've heard common consensus is that both the original light novel and the anime adaptation are superior to the manga version and lack a lot of its flaws. I'm enjoying this enough despite them that I'm going to finish the story this way, but will likely check out the other formats afterward.

From the New World is hard to describe, imperfect, and unsettling, but at the same time one of the most captivating and unique manga I've read in ages.

So far it is still holding my interest to what happens next - several interesting plot twists so far - but I'll have to see where it goes and how it progresses to some form of conclusion.
