Akumu no Elevator (AnE) is a two chapters manga made by Hanta Kinoshita. Without a doubt, this was one of the most pleasant surprises I found in a long time...

Jun Ogawa's life is about to change: his wife just phones him to tell that the baby is ready to leave her belly! Just one problem: at that time, Jun was in his mistress apartment...So, after apologizing, he runs to fulfill his role as the ideal husband. He called the nearest elevator and... everything turned black. When he finally awakes, he realizes that he is inside the elevator, with three other read more

If you happen to be in the mood for a mystery or dark psychological horror with plot twists try Akuma no Elevator.

This is a manga full of that and true dark humor.

Actually, the reason I decided to read this, is the initial synopsis sounded very much like the French existential play "Huit Clos" (transliteration would be No Exit or Behind Closed Doors ) which is a play about that takes place in a closed locked room with a very small cast of similar characters, and the setting seemed like that to me, so when reading the first chapter I read more

I think the best thing to do is to go read this manga having only read the synopsis and enter this roller-coaster of a story.

I don't want to get too deep into the details of 'Akumu no Elevator' or the characters themselves but I just want to say that this really makes you think. Or at least, that's what it did to me.

Whenever I hear about those terrifying situations that some people get inserted in and the way they come out as changed people, I get incredibly terrified because it makes me wonder if I would have made the same choices if I read more

SPOILERS (obviously)

First of all...trigger warning, I'm giving you. I saw it nowhere written in near sight, but the story deals with a heavy mental issue and mentioning of self-harm. I was slightly shocked, and if I saw mention of it, at least I'm prepared.
The other thing - shock value. This manga is full of it, not for the better.
I'm not sure if the effect the author was going for was supposed to be dramatic...it wasn't, I was LOLing hard at the "badass" characters and the tragic yet hilarious turns the story took every fifth or so page.
Illogical decisions, total lack of comprehending the gravity of read more
