Synopsis

Two mountain climbing friends, Asai and Ishikura, get trapped in the middle of a storm after an accident. Ishikura, earnestly believing he is about to die, decides to relieve his heart and confesses a sin from his past. However, he survives, and both make their way to a deserted cabin while waiting for help to arrive. But the knowledge of the confession weighs heavy on the both of them, and the long wait under the pressure begins to hack away at their sanity.

Allow me to confess that this is not a bad read, but execution and short duration won't exactly put it on top with some of finer examples.

Necessary pace for conveyance of such story is avoided for the sake of quick culmination. Thrill is there, albeit it is questionable how well you'll be able to immerse yourself next to such predictability.

Characters quickly jump in their situational and predetermined roles. There are minor traces of deeper characterization, but are only seen under scrutiny and even as such remains mediocre.

Art doesn't really supplement the positive points of this work. Verily, it is detailed and does read more

“It’s his fault… for listening…!”

A confession might be the greatest relief to the burden and remorse of a sin, especially when you’re on the verge of death. However, one single confession is also capable of tearing apart the masks of pretense and fragile trust between two friends.

On a particular mountain climbing trip at Mt. Owari, two friends, Asai and Ishikura, find themselves caught in a blizzard. To make matters worse, Ishikura has also sustained a terrible leg injury during their climb. Ishikura resigned himself to his impending death and confessed the murder he committed in the past to Asai, hoping for forgiveness and that Asai read more

The recommendation baseline for Confession/Kokuhaku is simple: if you're a fan of intense psychological thriller, you'd probably love this.

Award-winning creators Nobuyuki Fukumoto and Kawaguchi Kaiji provided the story and art respectively for this single-volume manga about two long-time friends stranded in the middle of a mountain blizzard. An unsettling sentence on a pitch-black background set the opening tone, and we are whisked straight away into the thick of it. The rest of the story you should really discover by yourself, but suffice to say that fan of Fukumoto's works (most notably popular long-running series Kaiji and Akagi) would be familiar with what's in store: mounting read more

Backwards Reading Idiot Reviews: Confession

Confession is a short one shot by Nobuyuki Fukumoto, who has a surprisingly long list of notable works, which mostly include gambling series such as Kaiji (three seperate series) and Akagi. Unfortunately I yet to read these series, so this is my first impression of the 52 year old mangaka.

Story: Two friends who frequently climb a mountain get caught in a blizzard. In the confusion, one of them, Ishikura gets injured on a rock, and it's up to Asai to save him. After a while and read more
