    DescriptionIn the second volume of The Limit, Mizuki has found herself in a position where her not only her social life is at risk, but her survival rests in the hands of the young women she was so desperately attempting to avoid. In the wild the strong survive, and while Alisa may not be smart or cute, she is physically strong. So she immediately takes command by gathering anything that may be used as a weapon to threaten the lives of anyone who may attempt to usurp her new found authority. Mizuki will have to win over the trust of three people who truly despise her. Whether that means doing all the most dangerous tasks to survive or she must endour bullying, right now she understands that unity will be their only way home. Keeping that unity may be improbable, though.

    Review quote
    "I can't remember the last time I was "this" freaked out by a manga... Remember the hubbub over the 2002 non-fiction book, "Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughters Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and Other Realities of Adolescence "by Rosalind Wiseman? Parents had quite the shocking wake-up call about what their little girls could really be like among their so-called friends. "Limit" strips away all that made-up glamour and privilege, and throws the girls into a brutal 21st-century "Lord of the Flies"-survival-of-the-most-desperate-setting. Thus the nightmare begins... I'm still shaking (and with that cliffhanger-ending, can hardly wait to see what happens next)." - The Smithsonian Institute's "Book Dragon" "Suenobo manages to write a scary thriller that's sophisticated and suspenseful enough to sustain an adult's interest; the story's occasional Grand Guignol touches add a welcome dash of camp, preventing the story from sinking under the weight of its Very Important Message. I can't imagine what will happen in volume two, but I'm looking forward to reading it... with the lights on. Recommended." - "Manga Critic" "I realize that even acknowledging the fact that Keiko Suenobu's "Limit "isn't your average shoujo story can alter expectations, but that needs to be said right up front. While many conventions are adhered to, going into this manga blind is best, so if you can go ahead and accept that "Limit "comes highly recommended, do yourself a favor and pick up the first volume with a clean slate. Don't even read the synopsis on the back and your experience might just end up mirroring my own." - "Otaku USA"
