My opinion:

A group of teenagers get chosen by a creature shaped like a jaw (?) and they have to find some passwords and get out of their school in a time limit, or else bad stuff will happen. I found this manga after finishing Kamisama no Iutoori (Fujimura Akeji version), wishing for something similar. But it’s not as good. As somebody once said before: “Imagine a boy with weird hair (but really well drawn) standing in a path of sunlight, with an index finger pointing forward bravely, saying “I will save everyone!”. That is exactly how the story is.

BUT I still liked it. The mysteries weren’t hard to solve, but they were interesting enough. All of the characters are very different people, which you rarely see in a manga by the same author, since people seem to have a limit to character creativeness. It is well drawn and well explained. It simply isn’t deep as I was expecting.
