Zenkkyou Gakkyuu (or Scary Lessons) is a manga about Yomi, a girl without legs, who tells you storys about little girls - more often than not they're going to middle school - who do something stupid and then be punished for it by some supernatural powers.

STORY 8/10

So actually there are many short stories which always have a moral, just like in 'Struwwelpeter', but Scary Lessons is much more creepy. The stories usually follow the same pattern:

A girl is almost satisfied with her life but has something she doesn't want and wishes to go away / wants to change. Therefor, she tries something which causes some read more

Well...where to begin? I actually never write a review...

I first saw Zekkyou Gakkyuu in a recommendation. I was interested and begun to read it.

I actually don't like shoujo's. But this was a good one! The story's are not hard to follow. Somehow, it reminds me of Hell Girl.
The art is ok, it looks like normal art for manga's.

However, every story is interesting and it isn't hard to follow because you just follow one story in read more

Studying, wanting to fit in at a new school, worrying about their body image, being competitive, wanting to impress that guy at school and have the perfect boyfriend, etc. Then, something shows up that would help them out with their troubles, the protagonist makes use of it, then read more

Emi Ishikawa's Zekkyou Gakkyuu (Screaming Lessons) is a shoujo horror anthology wherein most of the stories revolve around a young girl who comes across some kind of cursed item or creepy happening that ends up killing her at best or giving her an even worse fate than that. The happy endings in these one-shots are few and far between, and the protagonist usually has to go through hell to get it.

The only consistent character between chapters is Yomi, a ghost girl and the teacher of the titular 'screaming lessons'. She narrates the opening and ending of each story and usually provides a moral to the read more
