Synopsis

17-year-old high school student Asami Kawakami's friend, Chiharu, has stopped answering her phone and never comes to school anymore. She would rather spend her time playing Portus, an old videogame. There is an urban legend that there is a secret level where a boy appears and asks if you want to go to the other side. If you say yes, you die. When Chiharu cuts her own throat, Asami and the art club teacher, Keigo Sawa, set out to find out the truth behind the legend and Chiharu's suicide.

Portus was the first Horror manga I ever read. Maybe that is the reason why it was so impacting on me. It's a one volume book and the storyline is extremely unique. It is a story about revenge, friends, love, and despair.

A lot of the time I could feel the character's fear as I read it. The facial expressions were drawn with such fine detail.

The horrific images that the characters see can disturb you even though they are just simply drawings. I feel that the author did a great job in bringing this story to life. There is only so much you can show read more

Portus was given to me by a friend who bought it on a whim because the front looked like something I'd enjoy. Upon unwrapping it and reading it I found out that judging a book by it's cover is a bad bad thing.

While the art was interesting and the story was fairly complex, it just did not hook me into it. I ended up abandoning it several times and picking it back up after forgetting why I stopped reading it.

The ending was somewhat expected on my part, while I wont give away any spoilers. Let's just say about mid way into the story you could read more
