Synopsis

What lies below Tokyo's subway system is more frightening than you could have ever imagined...
Deep beneath Tokyo there exists a boundary between this world and the next: the land of the dead-and the mysterious young man Seiya is its guide. In this collection of bone-chilling shorts, follow the twisted tales of death and hauntings that inhabit this horrifying underworld, where innocent youth fall victim to the ghosts who lurk in Tokyo's underground.

Background

Dark Metro had two volumes published in English by Tokyopop, on January 31 and August 5, 2008, respectively, and later digitally in 2014.

Dark Metro is a horror manga placed in a metro, where spirits with grudges haunt people. The story isn't bad, a haunted metro and people falling victims to the ghosts, while Seiya does his best to save them. The problem with the story is (besides generic horror plot) that there isn't much of it at all, it's a clump of couple of people's fates and the timeline moves too fast, all you can see is action that characters are overreacting, screaming or running for their lives, nothing more.
The art is okay, there aren't many details but metro and gore part are done very well.

Unfortunately it goes down hill from there when it gets to volume two. The stories become a bit shorter and have less plot to them. Plot ideas that could be interesting if there was more buildup and detail fall flat when shrunk to only a few pages. The main repeating character read more
