I think the main criticisms for this manga are that the stories are too short and there isn't enough time for character development and yes these are true however, I find the stories are more like camp fire ghost stories that are meant to be short but entertaining and I personally think it does that really well. Approach the stories like short campfire ghost stories and you'll enjoy it better

Are you ready to experience 72 forgettable ten second stories?

The stories are so short that there is absolutely no build up of suspense. What is horror without suspense? Each story goes about like this...

Pg. 2 ) Plot.
Pg. 3 ) Abrupt ending with spooky face.

The art is great, but most of the stories would have been equally enjoyable without any story at all.
