Dark Metro is your standard horror manga. It's episodic so far and uses basic set ups. At the beginning it's fun and fairly well executed. I wouldn't call it the best in its genre but it's far from the worst. Especially considering that it's collections of short stories and not a long and involved plot.

Unfortunately it goes down hill from there when it gets to volume two. The stories become a bit shorter and have less plot to them. Plot ideas that could be interesting if there was more buildup and detail fall flat when shrunk to only a few pages. The main repeating character read more

Manga: Jigoku Shoujo
Both dark and set up as a series of horror stories in which the main character saves those who are good from evil spirits (Dark Metro) or escorts those who commit evil are escorted to hell (Jigoku Shoujo). Dark Metro has twisted stories with really spooky and gory art work, while Jigoku Shoujo focuses on human interactions instead of evil spirits. Both very suspenseful and dark. I recommend reading by flashlight.

Manga: Skyhigh
Both are about a kind of gate keeper to the after life and their impact on those who have died (Skyhigh) or at risk of being killed by the dead (Dark Metro).
