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 from them. Their fear, their hope, their surprise, their disappointment, their saddeness. It's all there for you to experience as the story unveils.
And the story ... It's amazing!
After a while you start thinking, there's has to be somthing supernatural about this, but at the same time you have that immenent feeling of natural catastrophe. read more

I read all 10 volumes of Dragon Head in the span of one week. And I would have completed it even sooner if it wasn't for Christmas and finals. Interesting right? Now onto the review.

STORY: 8/10
If I had to sum it up in one word I would say "Thrilling". It's palm sweating, mind numbing, edge-of-your-seat excitement. Teru (the main character) finds himself trapped in a dark tunnel along with all his dead classmates. Dazed and confused, he lives on. Why is it so hot in the tunnel? Whats with all the earthquakes? Why have people gone crazy? Teru is faced with all of these questions read more

Okay, if you are a fan of goofy shoujo manga, think twice b4 watching this. It's not something for the faint hearted. -- a night mare coming to life.
Ever heard of 2012? yes? well this manga is a naturalistic creation of the world ending tragedy. The artwork is horror itself- as i read the first three chapters, I was too shocked to move! 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.

Well, I finished the manga yesterday and I need to say I'm a bit disappointed.
The beginning was awesome. I really couldn't stop from reading. It felt to me like some Horror survival games I used to play. When you go around some dark mystery place and search for things. Really similar atmosphere. but then its just got ruined. There was so many potential, really sad.
From something about vol 3 the story begins to drag and drag and there isn't such much of a development except for the characters.
There is also this feeling like the mangaka killed every character when he finished using them.
I Kinda made read more

Read and completed this in a couple of hours basically, it was quite a ride.

I would say this was definitely worth the read if you enjoy horror/seinen but if you abhor bad endings then this will fuck your emotions up because you'll just say "damn I read 89 chapters just for this garbage ending?" Either way, I'm still glad I read it but yeah wish that ending was adjusted.

Story: 10

I enjoy post-apocalyptic stories/settings because it delves into the topic of morality when it comes to humans being in life or death situations and how would they react in certain ways. Overall, the plot didn't read more

Purposeful and eerie post-apocalyptic manga with some insightful musing on fear and the human condition. The pacing for the ending could have been less abrupt. I don't mind that we only learn as much as the protagonists do and many plotlines are not tied up- it fits the setting and the author's attempt to genuinely depict the human condition, and I feel that hinting at many different aspects of what is going on is more effective than simply answering every question the reader might have. The abrupt ending, without resolution and somewhat without fanfare (if you've seen one gigantic pillar of fire in the sky, read more
