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.


Two volumes of Dark Metro were published in English by Tokyopop on January 31, 2008, and August 5, 2008, respectively. The publisher later published a complete omnibus volume. The manga was also released in Brazilian Portuguese by NewPOP Editora from August 2008 to July 2009.

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.

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 ...

Personally, i did not like this manga. I didnt like the fact that new characters were constantly introduced and either died or were just forgotten.
I enjoyed the gory and horror aspects of the story but thats because im messed up and im fairly certain that other people would find random horrors introduced to be quite frustrating, especially as they kind of show up out of no where, seiya gets rid of them and thats that.
also, there are many plot holes, and an inconsistent storyline.
not to mention the fact that the script writing wasnt all that good either like im sorry, but whoever wrote the ...
