"Worth finishing up but don't expect anything much"

This being my first Junji Itou manga, his artwork drew me in because it was either more Western or it had a more conservative action POV panel style than most mangas I'm used to.

It's also the first horror comic I really tried following through and finishing but most of that is due to the blessings of the internet making these types of works easier to find and finish.

This newness is probably what convinced me to rate the art this good and yet be more critical of the manga's story even if it was already touted as a set read more

I like it, but it's not scary at all.

Story:
Yami no Koe (Voices in the Dark) is an anthology manga, in other words, each chapter is different in storytelling, pacing etcetera. That's why some stories are way better than the other. The only two stories where I felt the chills was "Blood-sucking Darkness" and the "Mystery of the Haunted House", but only a little bit.

The other stories were just forgettable and mediocre.

I don't want to get into spoilers, so that's why I warn you. Just don't read Glyceride, this story was disgusting, I mean like so disgusting that I gagged. It's not like scary, but read more

Yami no Koe is a set of short stories or one-shots. It's a bit difficult to score as a whole since each one left different impressions with me. I suppose it all was good. I enjoyed reading some of these well enough.

The best thing about this was the art. There's a definite unsettling style that Ito has that pairs so nicely with the stories he's conveying to a visual medium here. But, my main issues with this whole thing comes down to a couple specific stories. There was one in particular that felt grotesque for the sake of being grotesque without having much of a read more

Not exactly Ito's strongest output, but not without merit. While the anthology consisting of 7 short stories does feature some of the author's best work, it's not the go-to volume to get acquainted with him. The main issue I had is not, that the stories were bad, but that compared to other Ito's work the shock and horror factor was at a much smaller rate in this book.

The volume starts with "Blood Slurping Darkness", which as the title suggests is an alternative spin on vampirism. While the ideas Ito has are interesting and there is a twisted touch of romance to the story, it's not read more
