I have recently surpassed 2,700 comic books in e-book format.
As such a manga lover, I would like to recommend some horror manga.
The tension is so intense that it is numbing along with the fear.
There are some seriously scary ones and others that are softly horror with a gag taste, so we hope you can find one that seems to fit your taste by referring to the reviews!
Scary stories are easy to get excited about with friends, so it's a good idea to read them as a story.
Some people may not like the gory details.
Therefore, we have indicated that particularly grotesque items have grotesque expressions in the keywords, so we hope you will refer to them.
Underworld Picnic (Horror + Other World)
Keywords: modern, other world, unknown creatures, survival
Previously published: 3 vols.
The two main characters are two girls, Sora and Toriko.
In the introduction, Sorayo accidentally stumbles upon a door that leads to another world, and while exploring the other world, he "sees" something "strange" and almost dies.
Then, Toriko, who says she is looking for her friend in another world, comes to her rescue.
First of all, the "weird" stuff that makes you almost die just "looking" at it is extraordinary.
The phenomenon that occurs if you keep looking at it is quite unpleasant.
I don't know how the author came up with this....
This area is the gist of the first volume, so I encourage you to see for yourself.
In addition to the protagonists, there are two other characters in the first volume, one who is researching the underworld and the other a man looking for his wife in the underworld.
The manga has many scenes of psychological terror throughout, including the characters.
The title picnic is a complete fraud!
I thought the author did a good job of stirring up fear by hinting at an unintelligible entity.
I was a little scared to find out what the odd-shaped footprints at the end of the first volume were at the same time I was curious to know what they were.
The Little Girl Who Can See (Horror + Comedy?)
Keywords: high school girls, daily life, pretend invisibility
Number of publications: 2 vols.
It is a one-story manga in which Miko, an ordinary high school girl, sees a horrifying evil spirit at a random moment in her daily life and tries her best to pretend not to see it.
The highlight of this manga is Miko's expression as she pretends to be invisible while shaking and crying every time she pulls and shakes, just like on the cover of volume 1. It's cute and pitiful at the same time. Really....
Because, the appearance of evil spirits is too scary.
That's right, I'm going to cry! It's so different and weird.
I really think it will affect real life if people who are scared read it, because their faces are upside down, or they are lurking under the covers when they try to sleep.
Golden Gold (Horror + Suspense)
Keywords: contemporary Japan, erosion of the everyday
Previously published: 6 vols.
As soon as the main character, a junior high school girl named Ruka, brings home a fukunokami she found on the beach, the inn, which has not had guests for more than ten years, fills up, and the store becomes so prosperous that it turns into a convenience store.
At first glance, this may seem like a good thing.
Under the influence of Fucunokami, who looks like a Buddha statue on the outside, the people around him gradually lose their sanity, as if their necks are being tightened with cotton wool, and they feel as if they are being slowly and gradually cornered.
There is an indescribable sense of frustration.
The mask-like expression of the fukunokami amplifies the frightening effect.
Till the Bones Rot (Horror + Intimidation)
Keywords: secret, childhood friend, threat
Number of publications: 7 volumes complete
It is the story of five high school students who committed murder in the summer when they were 11 years old and have never forgotten it.
In the summer when I turned 16, someone digs up the body we all used to bury and uses it as blackmail material.
They are forced to confront their past while listening to the threats, as they are between a child and an adult, 16 years old.
The relationship between the five and the conflict over further transgressions are carefully expressed and engrossing to watch.
Watch how they deal with their relationship with sin that is driving them crazy.
It is complete, so if you like it, you can read it all the way through.
Starving Anonymous (Horror + Cannibalism)
Keywords: human eaten, monster, insect-like appearance
Number of publications: 7 volumes
The treatment is livestock, egregious, gross and nauseating....
This was the strong impression I had as soon as I started reading the book.
The feeling doesn't disappear as you continue reading, but for some reason, you can't stop turning the pages, "I can't wait to see what happens next...! and you can't stop turning the pages.
Not recommended for people who don't like bugs.
The creatures that feed on humans look very much like insects.
There are many comics these days in which humans are treated as food, but the grossness is by far the strongest among them.
It is intended for those who can tolerate such expressions, as humans are being gobbled up.
Many people pay more attention to the movements of the character Natsune than to the main character.
Natsune's sad past and the sad position of food mankind are depicted as realistically as if they really happened.
Dead Office (Horror + Drama)
Keywords: afterlife, grotesque, dramatic
Number of publications: 14
The agency that handles the procedures connecting this world and the next is the "death office.
People who die in any manner, including suicide, other murders, illness, and accidental deaths, are asked to decide here whether they will go to heaven or hell.
It is a common worldview in manga that there are the same paperwork procedures to go to the world of the dead as there are in this world.
Reading this piece may cause you to think about what you want to do before you die and what kind of letter you want to leave behind.
It is that dramatic.
There are pictures in which the internal organs seem to be popping out or half of the brain is missing, so if you are not a fan of internal organs, I would recommend other works.
Werewolf Game (Horror + Murder Game)
Keywords: game, life and death battle, brain battle
Number of publications: 4 volumes
The setting is a common one: one day you are suddenly a participant in a game of life and death.
If you have played wargames before, it is easy to imagine it as a real version of that. If you have no experience...Figure out the rules online.and you will be able to enter the conversation easily.
There is also a rule that the person playing the werewolf actually kills the villagers, and the villagers execute the suspicious person.
I think it will be more interesting if you are a regular werewolf or have a good understanding of the rules.
The wargame in this comic has three main points.
1. you can't escape the game as long as you have a collar attached to yourself
2. if we don't find and kill the werewolves, we will be killed ourselves.
3. they have to kill the player with their own hands
This crazy worldview is linked to werewolf games, creating a strangely realistic worldview.
Werewolf Game: The Beast Side (Horror + Murder Games)
Keywords: game, deception, continuation
Number of publications: 3 vols.
As the title suggests, this is a continuation of the wargame introduced earlier.
For this reason, it is more interesting to read the works I have just mentioned.
This piece will be told from the Beast side, or the werewolf side.
It depicts the fate of the villagers, who must complete the game from a different perspective than the villagers.
The more you read, the more interesting it becomes, and if you read the game again after finishing the Beast Side, you will find it more interesting with a new perspective. and the more you read, the more interesting it becomes, and even if you read Werewolf Game again after finishing Beast Side, you will find it more interesting with a new perspective.
It is similar to the feeling of being on edge when we actually play a wargame and end up playing the role of a werewolf, and it keeps us on our toes while we read.
Reina the Defective Degenerate (Horror + Gag)
Keywords: gag elements, high school girls, urban legend
Number of publications: 2 vols.
Unlike the previous one, this is a horror manga with a strong gag flavor.
Reina, an exorcist who looks like a full-blown delinquent, expels a spirit that is famous in the urban legend level.
The sad part of the delinquents is that even though they are expelling spirits, they seem to be bullying someone because of their bad mouth, extreme behavior, or the fact that few people around them can see spirits in the first place....
Still, the number of friends who understand her grows, and the number of Reina's friends grows as well, which is a highlight.
The figure of the person expelling the spirits by force is handsome and overturns the conventional method of expulsion, which is like chanting a spell!
If you are a little bit afraid of horror and want to gradually get used to it from now on, I suggest you start with this work.
Sacrifice Vote (Horror + School)
Keywords: school, grotesque, contains undertones
Number of publications: 7 volumes
It is often included in the horror genre, but I think the theme is more about human fear rather than spiritual fear.
Social death is inflicted on the student who has the highest number of votes in the "Sacrifice Vote" app suddenly placed in his/her phone or who tries to escape from the "Sacrifice Vote" (many secrets are revealed that no one wants to be found out).
And since the secret is social "death," it's so bad that it can be unrecoverable....
This is a tremendous fear for the generation that uses social networking and other services.
Is there anyone reading this who says that he or she has no trouble being found out if he or she is voted in? ...There are not many who do, are there?
That is why this story does not seem to be a stranger to me.
Listen to the Voice of the Dead (Horror + Omnibus)
Keywords: ghost, psychic, childhood friend
Number of publications: 12 volumes complete
The main character is Jun, a high school boy with a strong psychic sense.
One day, he begins to see his missing childhood friend, Ryoko Hayakawa.
Ryoko tries to help Jun in a way that she does not speak.
Different in atmosphere from the other works, it depicts the experience of fear that lurks in everyday life.
The way the world in which reality and horror unfold seem to merge without boundaries, the viewer is naturally drawn into the story and feels a close sense of fear.
The stories are in a complete story format, so you can easily read through them without worrying about the rest of the story.
The sense of excitement is somewhat less, but it is chilling to read.
Often described as an authentic horror story, many readers have become addicted!
The Screws in Everybody's Head That Went Out (Horror + Psychopath)
Keywords: crazy, psychopath, huffing and puffing, cackling (scary if you know what I mean)
Number of publications: 8 volumes
It depicts a lot of near-psychopathic behavior, as if the screws have been removed from their heads.
The sense of dread at the unusual behavior does not stop, and when you realize, "Oh, that episode earlier was a foreshadowing...! The bloodlust quickly subsides when you realize, "Oh, my God, that episode was foreshadowing...!
The feeling may be similar to that of a scary story when you understand the so-called meaning.
The unusual behavior that makes me sick to look at it makes my heart and head tired just reading about it... so why do I keep reading!
It is so habit-forming that I wonder if we readers have blown the screws out of our heads while reading it.
Although this is a horror film, this is not about ghosts and goblins, but about the fear of people with abnormal behavior and thoughts.
Saeism (Horror + Mind Control)
Keywords: bondage of friends, unusual expressions of affection, hidden crimes
Number of publications: 6 vols.
Sae, who is good in studies and athletics and well-liked, is an abnormal lover who falls in love with a plain girl and turns her into his own personal puppet.
The main character, Misao, falls in love with Sae.
It is also revealed that Sae is an abnormal lover to the extent that he once drove a girl to suicide in the past. Misao wonders how to escape from Sae, but Sae's strength and stubbornness are extraordinary...
Misao's domination by Sae's fear and her desperation to find an unlikely loophole makes you want to cheer her on just by looking at her.
Even third-party readers will be deeply horrified to see what they thought was just a friendship fall into a relationship that is so far from the norm. Please note that this story sounds so realistic that it even makes you feel pale at times.
If you were favored by Sae, how would you escape...?
Sae is too strong and smart and will control even your mind.
If you read the book with this perspective in mind, you will be even more on edge and the fun will be doubled.
wait for either of two different tiles to complete a chow which will finish one's hand
Keywords: humanoid animals, bizarre phenomena, invasion
Number of publications: 12
A long time ago, "human-faced dogs" became popular in the real world, and there were rumors that monkeys with human faces may have been created somewhere in the world as research material.
Humans feared animals with human faces and found them strange.
The "jinmen" took advantage of this eeriness.
The film depicts the fear that one day a large number of animals with jinmen will suddenly appear and begin to eat humans.
It is an unlikely bizarre phenomenon, but it is depicted with regard to jinmen that humans find creepy, and since there have been urban legends in our brains before, such as human-masked dogs, it is somehow realistic and fear-inducing.
Dogs and giraffes, which are supposed to be cute, have human faces, utter something close to human speech, and tear and swallow humans.
Can you bear the discomfort and fear?
Shibuya goldfish (Lepisma saccharina)
Keywords: bizarre phenomenon, human eaten, man-eating goldfish
Number of publications: 6 vols.
This one has the same parts as the "jinmen" mentioned earlier and eats humans.
However, it is the goldfish that eats the humans. Goldfish are originally observed by humans in goldfish bowls, but here goldfish prey on fleeing humans.
The human-crazed giant goldfish suddenly appears in Shibuya, a place where many people gather, forcing humans to find a way to survive.
The goldfish's eyes have the eyes of a dead fish, which makes them even more fearful on the human side.
We hope you will read this manga with your own eyes, in which the position of the goldfish as the one being watched by humans is turned upside down, and furthermore, the common sense of the goldfish being eaten is turned upside down.
It is a situation that could only exist in this manga, where people, who are supposed to be the strongest, feel fear and are afraid of goldfish.
HITOKUI -origin- / HITOKUI
Keywords: brainstorming, high school students, mutation
Number of publications: Hitokui 10 vols.
Hitokuii, vol. 9
The theme is a world in which the public is horrified by a series of mysterious deaths feared to be a strange disease, a certain manga-like simultaneous heart attack, and a world in which there is a lot of speculation.
The truth of the matter is the hitokui, and the film depicts humans on the run in the abnormal world presented by the hitokui.
The setting is similar to a kind of godforsaken, but it is a bizarre phenomenon caused by a creature that is more like a human being than a god.
Hitokui is a series,false killer whale (Pseudorca crassidens)It would be even more interesting to read together with
What action should you take in an extraordinary situation where you can survive by entrapping someone else?
Are you willing to cheat others in order to save yourself?
I felt that it was a work that also challenged my ethics as a human being.
To be honest, it's not scintillating, and the time spent moping around is long, so if that's not your thing, this may not be for you.

Saiko Series (Saiko Black, Saiko White)
Keywords: application, incidents among young people, urban legendary elements
Number of publications: Ayako Kuro, vol. 1
Ayako White, vol. 1
It is one of the works of Shingo Honda, a popular teacher whose stories are interesting.
The Saiko series includes "Saiko Black" and "Saiko White".
Ayako Kuro is a work that brings strange deaths to high school girls who have also had their selfish wishes granted by registering the application "SAiKO".
We will get to the bottom of SAiKO's instant transformation into a terrifying application.
The application spread rapidly because of high school girls, and because it was considered a god app that would grant them anything they wished for, the damage was too great.
With all the strange deaths happening around you, the fear that it might be your turn to die is unusual.
And Saiko White is a year before the app SAiKO brought death to everyone.
This is a spin-off work on the theme of why "SAiKO" was created.
It is recommended to read both together.
Serve me to the marrow of your bones.
Keywords: adultery, doldrums, youthful regret
Number of publications: 20 (single story edition)
It depicts the fate of the protagonist, whose peaceful days are destroyed by his own emotional turmoil and guilt over past sins.
The protagonist was a 28-year-old businessman, living an ordinary but peaceful life with his wife and children.
However, one day he is reunited with his first love from junior high school, and we see him go down the wrong path out of guilt over her.
Her madness and the protagonist's fear that her peaceful life is slowly but surely being devoured are fascinating to watch.
It's a story of the Doronuma type, so reading it can be a bit frustrating, but if that doesn't bother you too much, read on.
Keywords: violent expressions, college students, SNS
Number of publications: 6 (single story edition)
This manga is concerned with today's youth who are familiar with social networking sites.
Suddenly on a social networking site, "What kind of kill would you like to see?" and several photos are sent to you with the words "What kind of kills would you like to see?
The story begins with the fear that if you casually vote, the person voted for will die in a way that kills hope.
The fact that it is a social networking site, and the fact that the reason for learning about it is a college club, is also very realistic.
As a college student, you see a lot of suspicious circles, but perhaps there are circles of fear like the one depicted in this comic.
You college students might want to be careful.
Soon the mass of flesh will pass.
Keywords: car accident, girlfriend, grotesque expressions
Number of publications: 6 vols.
The title contains the word "lump of flesh," but it is a lump of human flesh in the same sense.
As you can imagine from this, the grotesque elements come out of nowhere at the beginning of the story.
The protagonist's ordinary, happy days with his favorite girlfriend are interrupted that day when the railroad crossing's circuit breaker comes down and she becomes nothing more than a lump of meat.
Looking at the author's other works, it seems that many of them are somewhat more adult oriented.
This is a work that also inherits a bit of that atmosphere, so if you are not a fan of it, you might want to stay away from it.
Since it is in full color, the redness of the blood can be felt directly, which some may not like.
Livestock and Ghosts
Keywords: gag elements, healthy ghost, bite
Number of publications: 3 vols.
It is a fun and interesting horror-tinged manga with few grotesque expressions.
The ghosts are so annoying and healthy... it's kind of cute!
Company employees, even if you are busy, please have fun playing with ghosts once in a while!
Normally, one would have a sense of fear about what the ghost is doing, but a company animal that has lost its normal sense of judgment and says, "Huh...I must be too tired," is strong anyway!
I blame everything on fatigue.
I thought the ghosts looked scary when they first appeared, but they seemed surprisingly cute with their bright eyes...?
She will bring a little laughter to your tired days and you may enjoy having her around even if you are a corporate employee.
If you are not a fan of horror, please pick up this piece first.
It is not that scary.
Keywords: infection, brotherhood, many beautiful girls with great style
Number of publications: 16
Infected humans turn into zombies, and the protagonist takes on zombie-like monsters in order to save those who have not yet been infected and to research ways to subdue the infected.
When reading the book, everyone might think, "No, no, the main character is too popular..." In any case, the main character is very popular with the extremely cute and stylish schoolgirls.
But I thought the story was really interesting!
There is some adult language and scenes of human predation, but the fun outweighs that.
Their detailed expressions, backstage settings, and special feelings for their siblings and childhood friends are highlights of this highly readable work.
Which beautiful girl will the main character end up with...that's another point to watch out for!
