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.

Well ladies and gentlemen people say no one dose horror like the Japanese and after reading this manga that may actually be an understatement. Firstly don't let the idea of the stories being too short put you off this actually adds to the chilling factor as the scares comes think and fast and to re-litigate this manga actually scares and borderline makes you jump which is not small task for a bunch of words and pictures. The only criticism i find is that the last volume was not scary as the others and a couple of the stories did not seem to make sense read more

Is there a monster in your closet...? What's under your bed...? What does the darkness hide...?

In a nutshell, Fuan no Tane is a compilation of common (and not so common) fears and traumatizing experiences from people in manga form. This manga illustrates how these fears have a certain grip over society and why.

There is no central story in this manga, which may come as unorthodox to some readers, but give it a chance if you have to. The purpose isn't to per se create a central story, but rather to combine many stories with a central intention. If read more

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.
