Let's get this out of the way: Motherfucking Inoue.
Spoiler
2 kids are the first casualties of the first chapter, 3rd page.

A school student gets beheaded by the Raven Orphenoch.

The monster deaths are on brand, though
Changes (this is a reboot):

1- Mari's not with the other Ryusei students.
2- Takumi/Mari/Keitaro are introduced in chapter 2, along with a new character who seems to be Mrs. Kikuchi/Keitaro's mom.
3- No sign of Kiba/Yuka/Kaidou.
4- Kusaka's a richie rich living in a expensive apartment with some fangirl, despite Kusaka simping for Mari. He has a backstory:
Spoiler
When he was young, he was in a man overboard accident. His mom tried to save him, but turbulence knocked her out while Masato regained consciousness & tried to save her. Chances are, there's more to this backstory in future chapters.
The artstyle is dime-a-dozen romance-comedy manga art. Mixing this artstyle with the series' tone is a bad idea.

You're awesome, Kohei Murakami, but this isn't it.
Introducing Keisuke Watanabe to a notable voice actor of Freeza & a TTRPG player/actress is likely my crowning achievement in 2020.

What is this exactly? A Faiz manga with Kusaka as the focal point?

So I guess you don't recommend picking it up? I have volume 1 but never got around to reading it

No. The artstyle clashes with the series' premise and the story's moving slowly.

However, I'll continue this journey to hell so that I can document how far Inoue has fallen and then sell the volumes on Bookoff.

My prediction:
Spoiler
Kusaka successfully manipulates any character not named Mari to sacrifice their lives in taking out Murakami/Smart Brain/Lucky Clover while defeating the Arch Orphenoch, but as he approaches Mari looking like he's victorious, he turns to dust because he ran out of Orphenoch DNA

As I remember it... Kusaka assaults Mari which leads Kiba to turn Horse Orphenoch and beat the former so badly that he turns into a broken vegetable. Saya (that one Delta girl) takes Kusaka back to her house because she apparently got reimagined into a yandere for the guy.

In comparison, I think that manga just sounds kinda silly and dopey. Thankfully, nowhere as bad.
