In the world of Plunderer, everyone’s born with a number written on their body. Those numbers determine social ranking and go up or down depending on a specific criteria in each person’s life. But when a person’s number drops to zero, they’re sucked into the ground, never to be seen again
Suu Minazuki’s Plunderer manga launched in Kadokawa’s Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine in December 2014. To date, thirteen volumes have been released, with the latest shipping to stores on July 26.
