What started as a fun day out quickly turns to one of horror when roller coaster passengers find their ride cut short and are left dangling from their seats, desperately clinging for survival. A voice through a speaker informs them that a game of survival is under way and the last one to hold on will be spared. Elsewhere, a vengeful high school student is determined to obtain the ashes from a cursed urn said to have demented powers. Accompanied by her worried friend, she sets out to the graveyard where it is said to be located, unaware that what awaits them is far more horrific than they ever could have imagined.

From stories of an insidious group who plays with human lives for sport to chilling ghost fables with horrifying realities, 8.1: Yamada Yuusuke Gekijou compiles tales of dread, horror, and sickening cruelty. Happy endings are scarce, and survivors, if any, do not escape unscathed.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


The series is based on the short story collection 8.1 by Yuusuke Yamada which released on July 23, 2004. The collection was also adapted into a live-action movie in July 2005.

The first thing I noticed when I started on this series was the quality of the artwork- the artful usage of strong contrasting worked perfectly to bring out the main focal points of each page- something I haven't seen in the mangas I've read. The art-style is very bold and minimalist- a nice combination that makes reading pleasant on the eyes.

Character-wise, I cannot say much since at point of writing, only 2 chapters have been released.

Because snuff film-esque plots are always eccentric and depraved, it also means that such a niche area would prove the worthiness of the authors to show whether they can read more

This review was written the day before a final exam day, so please do forgive some errors.

After I got back from the library, I decided to read some new manga. I was looking through some random manga until I saw 8.1 Yamada Yuusuke Gekijou. This manga looked promising, and it got me hooked.

Story looks all right. Its similar to psychological manga except there is no use for the brain (so far). A couple gets into some twisted game with many other people, and chaos begins.The people subjected to this game are placed in ridiculous situations that practically ensures their deaths. Although it is too early read more
