"Here be monsters," this expression has always been used to speak of the ocean—a dark, impenetrable world that can only conceal unimaginable horrors that the human can't see... often not until it is too late. A series of unexplained accidents happen at a submarine platform 6,000 meters beneath the surface and, in response, a group of scientists and cadres are sent to investigate. Before long, the members of the party start to get haunted by horrifying, elusive visions... and the rash of brutal deaths once again resumes. Is it just a collection of freak accidents and hallucinations caused by sheer paranoia, the claustrophobic environment and dysbarism... or is there really something more lurking in this abyssal station?
It was a disappointment. Maybe the version I read was poorly translated or it was just poorly written. It hard a hard time getting points across to me, both artistically and dialogue wise. The art is solid but the flow of and the sequences were crappy. I had no idea what was happening most of the time.
Story wise, I am really really let down. It takes place in a facility 6000m underwater where a mysterious massacre occurred! You can play around with so many types of fears! The deep, dark ocean itself scares me personally, nightmare deep sea creatures, claustrophobia(Come on, you can imagine the facility collapsing in on you, it could be so scary!). But no. He went with (*SPOILERS*) summoning some ancient evil god or something.
It had potential but I was not entertained. :c read more
Read this manga late at night, alone, in a dark room, with the lights out, and you will definitely get scared at one point or another. The story isn't that great, but for all that it's worth, the mystery aspect is strong enough to be creepy, and the story in itself is fairly entertaining.
The story: A rather simple one of people getting stranded in a "closed room" with some murderous entity out to kill them, but the author's art style and execution really give this manga a creepy vibe that gets to you.
What I really like about this manga is that it doesn't rely on blood and gore to "scare" readers, but instead does this by creating creepy vibes, and through suspenseful situations. The best part? He succeeds! (imo) I've read other series that try to creep you out one way or another, but just can't pull it off. This one does.
Again, for full effect, read at night with lights off, by yourself. Very entertaining read, and definitely will recommend. read more
