Dragon Head
Volume 1


Three teenagers—Teru Aoki, Nobuo Takahashi, and Ako Seto—discover that they are the lone survivors of a gruesome train accident that proved fatal to their fellow classmates and teachers. In an attempt to make their way out of the dreadful wreckage, they band together to grapple with hunger, loneliness, and the overwhelming sense of loss. However, as something sinister lurks in the shadows, the trio must fight off their worst impulses and the temptation to succumb to madness in these cruel times of despair.

So I finally managed to read this to the end, and I have to say ... WOW
From the start one of the biggest achievments of this manga is the characters. Without them, Dragon Head would loose many points.
They are REALISTIC! And that is saying a lot. You can actually feel for them. Their fear, their hope, their surprise, their disappointment, their sadeness. It's all there for you to experience as the story unveils.
And the story ... It's amazing!

It was like the images attacking my brain over and over, sending me to insanity. Eventually, the gore, the blood, the darkness, sweat, patience and hallucinations: all epic elements for a horrifying tragedy is in there.

Mixed Feelings
This is my review after i complated this manga, all i can say is its not as good as the hype.

The fear and confusion of the character espcially the mc and fmc are well written for the most part. But the other character feels like they are just cameo in this story.
Especially the dragon head part, like ...
