A boy went to take his trash out late one night, and found a strange, creepy, lolita woman sitting amongst the garbage bags. She asked if he had a little sister, and he answered her, hurrying afterwards back to his apartment. When he looked out the window, she was gone. Who is the strange woman, and why does she give him such a bad feeling?

Story - I didn't know what to expect originally. I've read most of the Higurashi mangas and I've read Elfen Lied (and seen both the animes). I didn't think that anything I read would be much worse than these two... How naiive of me... When I started reading this I was alone in my room, in the dark and I had to sit downstairs in the company of others to finish reading it. I almost expect to see the lolita standing outside my door right now...
Anyway, the story was very well done with a couple of interesting twist. Creepy too!

Art - As others have said, read more

It amused me to see that the tags for this manga are "horror, run bitch runnnnnnn!, holy shit, seinen, horror, ryou haruka, and like really. :o"

That being out of my system, lets get to business! (I'll try to make a short one this time :p)

Overall (9/10)
The story is good. The art suits the story. The character STAYS in character (especially the creepy lolita girl). The enjoyment? If you mean did it scare the crap outta me? Then yes, yes, it did.

Story (10/10)
It's unpredictable, which is a good thing in this kind of story. You expect that this thing will happen as a result of this read more

In short, utterly terrible. A thankfully short, z-grade foray into old and tired horror movie cliches that almost look laughably bad with the shonen style art. I would say I really enjoy horror and thriller themed seinen stuff, but more in the vein of episodic, large, almost adventurous tales: bio-meat, cage of eden, kamisama no iutoori and higanjima are all great example of horror seinen done right for me (to varying degrees.) With Ibitsu, all I got was a blah little serial killer story full of dumb plot holes and a twist that I saw coming miles away. The way they kill off characters is read more

This is my first review on here, so this won't be as good as the other reviews here. When I first the synopsis for this manga, I thought it was fascinating and creepy. I'm not a fan of horror films and after reading this manga, I am definitely not a fan of horror manga.

Out of all the horror stories I've heard in film, tv, anime and manga, this is definitely unique. It is completely unpredictable, which will always make you hanging on the edge of your seat, wondering what happens next. For me, I was contemplating why I was reading read more

Manga: Zashiki Onna
Both are about a disturbed, deranged young woman who stalks and harasses the male protagonist after a chance encounter and doesn't hesitate to harm those close to him to get to him. The main differences are that Zashiki Onna starts off fairly mild and builds up tension and terror as it goes along whereas Ibitsu goes full tilt from the beginning, and that the stalker in Ibitsu is developed and explored a bit more thoroughly than in Zashiki Onna. Other than those factors, they're pretty much different takes on the same story.

Manga: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni: Onikakushi-hen
Creepy stalker-girls strike fear into the hearts of men. DON'T LIE TO GIRLS, OR TALK TO GIRLS THAT ARE SITTING NEAR RUBBISH!!!!!

Ibitsu could be compared to many of Higurashi's unhappy, disturbing offerings, but the ever increasing creepiness seen in the opening Higurashi arc as its lead desperately tries to escape from a girl following him with a sharp, not-so-friendly weapon probably best matches up.

Manga: Saiteihen no Otoko
Horror thriller fans are going to love these short, horrifying stories.

In both stories, the male protagonist meets a mysterious, scary girl, and soon finds out that they are in deep shit.

Manga: Hideout
Hideout and Ibitsu similarly have both Horror and Seinen categories. They have contracted plots and graphics that adds impact to the atmosphere that is needed at an important scenario. They are both Completed as well.

Manga: Lore no Mori
Horror story about an urban legend with a similar style of narration. At first I thought it was the work of the same author.

Manga: Tokyo Akazukin
Horrendous gore, bone-chilling visuals, and a creepily-cute girl to tie it all together in a nice intestine bow. Both Ibitsu and Tokyo Akazukin pride themselves as every drawing is detailed with ornate squiggles and jointed angles in all of their disembowelment moments and twisted limbs. The gore is prime in both mangas and for a horror genre, that is admirable. Their stories too are quite compelling, but fair warning, Tokyo Akazukin is VERY racy and a great amount of lolicon. That would definitely turn others away. For those with the stomachs and open-mindedness, give TA a try if Ibitsu charmed your bleeding, beating heart.
