There is only one word that describes this manga - tension. If you liked "Death Note" and "Spiral", you will love "Bloody Monday", it exudes the same feeling of mental chess, intrigue, and continuous feeling of tension. Death lurks in every corner, there is no feeling of assurance that we get from other mangas where you are confident that the main characters typically do not die - not an assumption you can make with this one. The story twists, turns, thrills, and surprises.

The art work is very good too, the character expressions are well drawn, but I didn't pay a lot of read more

If you enjoyed reading works such as Death Note or Liar Game, this manga is right up your alley. With subtle twists and turns every chapter, this fast paced manga will have you off your feet in anticipation for the entire ride.

Story - 7
Extremely fast paced; the majority of the first season takes place in just a few days. The story, while itself is quite unique and captivating, the basis of it is ridiculous and hysterical in many aspects. What I am referring to when I call it ridiculous, is the fact that, the majority, if not the entirety, of the story, would never read more

Bloody Monday tried to be a suspense-thriller anime which involves a lot of "black hat hacking". Although they try very hard to use accurate terms, anything involving computer crimes tends to be misunderstood by traditional storytellers, and that is still the case here.

Lots of things are almost accurate, and for that reason, I got sort of annoyed with the series.

Another annoying thing was that the "experts" often make the same novice mistakes, over and over again. This might be accurate if they were run of the mill government workers, but, they're supposed to be elite, highly trained specialists.

On the other hand, they read more

Well ,its been 5 years since I finished the epic showdown of mind games between l and kira. And I am really bored with those lame tricks that new “deathnote wannabe” mangas are trying to pull off…..speaking truthfully while geas was great but to me it fell short while comparing to deathnote according to those beautifull mind chess between two intellectuals .Keeping aside the adventurous types like one piece and naruto , my expectation from short spanned thriller animes or mangas are actually how much intellectual property is included in the show without being lame on the context and concept .

so far it has done read more

Manga: Death Note
I only realized the similarity with around chapter 22 of BM. There is a mastermind with an initial (K and L). There are genius on both sides of the fighting line attacking with intellect and sleuth. Bloody Monday has more action and blood than Death Note and DN has more brains. There is mystery regarding both the protagonist and antagonist and their plans. Death is brought up on both and justice.

both these manga's have a theme showing the dark side of the world and both have gore in them. so if you like one of them you most likely like the other one

They are both strategical and both contain secrets that need to be discovered. Both the main protagonists are intelligent, in their own fields.
