Synopsis

“Tales of Moonlight and Rain” is a collection of classical Japanese horror/suspense stories. The stories are simple, but abundant with traditional fictional Japanese characters, such as the half-man half-bird Tengu, white serpents, fantastic carps, goblins and restless ghosts, driven by love or hatred.

This manga is an adaptation of three out of nine collected supernatural stories that were published in Japan in the 18th century by Ueda Akinari. The most recent English translation of that collection was published in 2006 for those interested.

I was pretty disappointed with the art and the way the mangaka had adapted the stories. I haven't read the original collection myself, so I don't know if the mediocre quality of the plot of each story stems from that same collection.

For anybody who's read some of the Japanese folklore, the manga would feel very tedious to read because it carries similar themes found in some read more
