This manga is a collection of stories made based on some book stories by HP Lovecraft, a renowned horror story writer. I must admit that I did not consume anything from the author's literature, but I must say that this adaptation did a sensational job individually.
I have to say that it is a very consistent collection of interestingly dense and profound stories that, for short stories, are very well used. These stories explore fear in a curious way, I interpreted it as a fear for the unknown, the first two chapters where the general after an arduous search discovers an underworld or the last where
there is a city that hides great secrets, it is a different and well applied way to explore human's feelings, not to mention that the outcomes are also very well thought out. There is also the story of where the name comes from, the main one, the hound, which, strangely for me, was the weakest of the 3 stories, without the density of the other 2 (there are 3 stories with one extending over 2 chapters)
The characters are just part of the horror and don't have too much development or personality, but some dialogues are just really good with memorable phrases.
I give great credit for the fantastic work of art, it is something different from the usual of some drawing, it is detailed in a unique way, in addition to designing its horror scenes very well.
Gou Tanabe was able to adapt a work of horror literature with his great art and narrative structure, resulting in a memorable collection.
