As a massive fan of Takashi Miike, I was surprised I hadn't ever heard of the manga for One Missed Call. Being one of my first Miike movies, I've always had a small soft spot for the franchise, so upon finding the manga series, I immediately rushed into it.
My average manga score was finally starting to increase and look better, sigh.
This was pretty much an insult to Takashi Miike's franchise. An insult is pretty much putting it nicely.
The artwork just seemed lazy with two of the characters in the second volume looking so similar you couldn't tell them apart. The story followed the film
exactly with literally no differences. The second volume was so rushed, there was no telling what was going on even with knowledge from the film. Again, the artwork just looked simple and basic as though the artist didn't even care about what they were doing.
This was just an overall mess and I can't even describe how much of a mess it was. Watch the films, skip this and thank me for it later.
