After I joined one of the Manga groups here, I saw this book on the 'top 65 horror mangas'...I gave it a try...This is my very first horror manga..Wow !!! It just blew me off...I really liked the stories,very original.My favorites were the first 2 chapters in the book,Library of illusions,Songs in the dark & Splatter film...The best of them all is "Songs in the Dark" !!!
