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 picked this up after searching "scariest manga" on google. After reading first story, I had an unexpected laugh of pure disappointment. Garbage build up, abrupt and retarded conclusions with no suspense at all. It earns 3 points because of the comedic points and 1 more point for including Don Chinjao's(one piece) unofficial cameo.

A decent horror should include some suspense, develop some sort of sympathy to the characters to make us care about the fate of the characters. This is just straight up pathetic, I'm sure not even a prepubescent child who shits himself from every small completely natural event possible would appear to be read more

I heard this was one of the scariest manga out there, which was the reason why I was drawn to it.

I read this whole thing in one sitting, not because I loved it....but because some of the stories were so short.
Short as in some were a single page and the longer ones had little to no dialogue.

The first story drew me in and I was looking forward to a collection of scary stories, come to realize the good ones were pretty outnumbered by the ones were basically nothing happened.

The art work was pretty good so some of the scary moments creeped me out.
Though the read more
