I thought this manga wasn't going to be scanlated until the end for real, but I'm glad it was. I read Baptism for the first time a long time ago, and I planned on dropping it because I couldn't find the fourth chapter in English. A few days ago, however, I realized that it has been translated. I finished it and I guess I could say that it was a breathtaking ride.

Baptism is grotesque, surreal and thrilling, just like Umezu Kazuo's other manga. It's impossible not to binge read - for me, at least. I thought it was going to be some boring, read more

I just finished reading Baptism and saw that there was no review for it, so I decided to write one myself.

Baptism, or Senrei (in the Japanese name) was created by Umezu Kazou, the famous and old horror mangaka who inspired many other horror mangaka like Junji Ito, but I have never read any manga from Umezu Kazou before, so I went in without any expectations. I'm saying this, because despite the promising first few chapters, Baptism was overall a letdown, primarily because it was ruined by the sudden "plot twists" that came in the last volume, up until then it was fine or even read more
