Alternate Titles: Meikyuu Metro - Mezametara Saikyoushoku Datta node Shima Risu o Tsurete Shinsekai o Aruku 迷宮メトロ ～目覚めたら最強職だったのでシマリスを連れて新世界を歩く～, Publisher: Syosetsu Raw Link: https://ncode.syosetu.com/n0281fj/ MangaDex Link(for adaptation): https://mangadex.org/title/257176a4...a-node-shima-risu-o-tsurete-shinsekai-o-aruku Cover Illustration: Description: When our 23 year old hospitalized protagonist - Shuu Abe - wakes up, he finds himself in a strange underground world rampant with monsters he has never seen before. It is 100 years in the future and he is on the 50th basement floor of the "Otsuka Metro", a labyrinth full of strange beasts, in a Tokyo which had been transformed by events called "the flooding of the metro" and "contamination of super fungi". In front of our puzzled protagonist, appears a talking chipmunk named Tamiko. "Mister Hunter, let's squeak on to the surface together!" says she as the two decide to work together to achieve their goal of escaping the labyrinth. Eat the spores of the defeated metro beasts to level up and acquire "bacterial ability (skill)". An adventure of a unique pair has set its course! Why It Should Get Picked Up: - It has the structure of an 'Isekai' but it's actually a fairly unique post-apocalyptic setting. - Very good world-building, with a vast underground labyrinth filled with humans and other strange creatures that is based on the Tokyo Metro. - The monsters and special abilities are all based on plants and fungi, which is an original concept This would definitely make for an interesting reading experience.
