i really enjoyed this manga for a multitude of reasons

1. the art, while clearly inspired by junji ito, is amazing and adds to the scary elements of the story

2. the mix of horror, comedy and very slight romance is nice and while it is scary the light-heartedness counters it perfectly

3. the story, while usually i like it when stories have consequences e.g someone gets possessed one chapter and is therefore possessed in the next, this manga only does this during arcs and i think it adds to the manga as a whole, while usually (in my opinion) doing that takes away from the story

After reading through the current chapters I found the series rather enjoyable. Now I’m not a horror person so I honestly cannot say if the series is good if you are looking to be scared. Personally I’ve never found how something I am reading can horrify me.

The main character’s interaction as he tries to solve the mystery of the day with the help of a certain being is actually very interesting. Though not necessarily suspenseful I do find myself wondering “what will happen next” or “what does this mean”, but only to an extent. Other characters sadly aren’t that felshed out, save a few read more

A cute lil' slice-of-life gore manga! Great leisure read, well-crafted but light enough to be enjoyed at your pace.

The story follows the supernatural and violent (and sometimes just violent) accidents of the two main characters and the other hodgepodge side characters of the supernatural club. It is very, very slice of life because the story is a cycle of: nasty stuff happens, our protagonists narrowly escape, and then we accept it, forget it, and move on to the next chapter.

The reasons why I rate this so highly are because one, the story is very clean, two, the protagonists are well-developed and, three, the art read more

Junji Ito : BOOTLEG Edition

A poor man's bland rip-off which contains a heavy filler graffiti EDGY tone. Less gore filled with drastic horror flick. Distasteful scenarios were induce set of crappy panels and teen occultic vibes for people with crippling depression.

In a nonsense way

The series would also consider more than a daily sitcom came from
a b-rated low budget shitty movie where pile of corpse where subsided into bloodlust massacre. There's a bit potential, but along it's premises that lack also it's own current factor. Leaning only the story for such a horrible paced. Despite the background as usual, some of the dialogues which narrated where read more
