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. 1 ) Location, date, and character. Reference to spooky face.
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.

I read the first volume of this manga and did not like it at all.
Most of the stories in it are extremely short and suddenly end without much explanation as to what was going on. I thought this manga would be creepy, but it was far from it.

I'm going to preface this review by saying that this largely could be a case of a work simply not being for me. The horror genre as a whole has never been something I've gotten too into and this has been especially true for comics and manga. The few horror comics I have gotten into (Preacher, Hellboy, Sandman) were largely due to me liking the story itself as opposed to the horror elements. However, a friend of mine recommended Fuan no Tane to me and here we are.

To be rather blunt, I kind of think the idea of these books, a series of horror shorts read more

Short, but that's the point of it being folk-tales. "Did you hear about that ghost in X? Yeah, I hear he does Y." That's what you get, and it's all that's needed to be spooky. This isn't terrifying, but it can be creepy and reminds you that it's always possible there's something else nearby that disrupts the status quo.

Chapters are divided into sections that follow a theme, be it 'sinister double-takes' in which you think you saw something, and you know you shouldn't look again but that itch needs to be satisfied. It's basic, simple, and for the time it takes to read, it's worthwhile.
