Synopsis

There's a game going around Japan called 'Rabbit Doubt'. The premise of the game is that all of the players are rabbits in a colony, and one amongst them is randomly chosen to be a wolf that infiltrated the group of rabbits. Every round, the wolf kills off a rabbit, and every round, the group tries to figure out which of the rabbits is actually a wolf in disguise. Sometimes the kids who play this game decide to meet up in person, and Yuu, Mitsuki, Rei, Hajime, Eiji, and Haruka have done just that. Unfortunately, one of them has decided to take on the mantle of the wolf and has already killed once. Who is the wolf, and can they be stopped before everyone meets a very unpleasant end?

A story about a group of people locked together in a strange place being killed off one-by-one: sounds fun, right? Well, that is if you're a horror buff. Even though this plot has been done to death (hehe, look at the puns a rollin'!) "Doubt" brings some new charm and perspective to the table with its telling.

First off, the most enjoyable and engaging part of this manga to me was the cell-phone based game that frames the overall story. The game deals with a group of rabbits who are being murdered one-by-one by a wolf hiding amongst them. So what do these little critters do? read more

It's basically a game of guessing. If you guess right, you survive. If you guess wrong, you'll die. Now, this isn't just a game for children. It required hard thinking and strong determination.

The intention of this Manga is to make it's readers doubt and think. The manga wants us to think alongside, to guess who the killer truly is. And of course, we as the readers succumb to this feeling and guess.
However, this is where my first disappointment came into the picture.
There are varieties of personalities and character present to make the manga interesting. All it needed was more doubt among themselves; more drama, more read more

Whats is the one thing in the world that you can never doubt?
That my friend, is doubt itself. If you doubt the existence of doubt,
you are contradicting yourself. Since doubting doubt, ultimately means
you believe in doubt.

In a room filled with five people each of them has a their own bar code, and grotesque body hanging before them. There is a wolf masquerading as a rabbit. If they can find the wolf, they will survive. Choose the wrong rabbit, and all the rabbits will die.

This manga is very engrossing. After the first chapter, I was quickly hook in the world of Doubt. As the title read more

For some strange reason, I am absolutely infatuated with this manga. It's sick, demented, and twisted... and I love it. Doubt is an online game come to life, where each character is slowly being cut out and killed. Who is first, who is next? Nobody knows except the killer wolf. A completely demented manga that makes you go, quote, "Hm... interesting opener... decent characters, kinda funky, good art... HOLY SHIT." unquote.

All the characters of Doubt have their own special persona. Each one from a different "cliq" and you get to see how the characters begin to develop bonds between one and another despite their read more

Manga: Battle Royale
Both pertain to normal kids getting wrapped up in a death game and being forced to deal with their situations. Doubt is a little more story centric while BR is simply survival

Manga: Mirai Nikki
Its a small group of people, the paranoid feeling that everyone is after you, and its generally creepy. There are certain differences tough, but it gives of the same feeling.

Manga: Ousama Game
Blood, gore and page after page filled with action. If you like your horror manga filled with action and unexpected plot twits I have good news for you. Both of these manga center around involved in sort of 'cell phone game' gone bad. The only one to survive is the last man standing? If you liked one of these manga I am sure you will like the other one too!

Manga: Deadman Wonderland
Confinement, gore, and desperation encompass the psychological framework in these two series.

Manga: Liar Game
The two series are very similiar. Both involve trust and lying for your own gain with a lot of emphasis on human nature and psychology. While Liar Game is more about money, Doubt is more about a persons life, but both have the same basic idea of playing a game with a lot at stake.

Even tho Doubt is a bit more horror-ish, both manga are about a game which includes death. Kinda different, yet similar.
