BL for horror lovers

Dec 14 2023, 7:49 AM | Updated Jun 9, 8:44 AM
Not recommended for those who are easily disturbed - contains adult content such as violence, physical/psychological torture and sensitive themes. Those without comments are manga/manhwas that I haven't read yet, or that I finished a long time ago and want to read again before commenting.

Hikaru ga Shinda Natsu

The Summer Hikaru Died

Hikaru ga Shinda Natsu
Manga, ? vol, 2021 Me:- Author:10
There's not much to say about this one, for me it's perfect in every aspect and my only complaint is having to wait a month or so to read a new chapter. One of the best examples of how to make a manga for both horror and BL fans. The best manga you'll find on this list.


*Shounen-ai/not explicit
Otsukaresama, Kurose-kun
Manga, ? vol, 2024 Me:- Author:-
Finally... The long-awaited manga is out! I have high expectations for this masterpiece, and the first chapter was all it took to prove that it has great potential. How can I explain? It's a mix of Mieruko-chan and the manga above (Hikaru ga Shinda Natsu). The art is beautiful, the story is promising and apparently the chapters will be released monthly. A great new manga to follow!


Kimi no Yoru ni Fureru

Touch within the Abyss

Kimi no Yoru ni Fureru
Manga, 1 vol, 2021 Me:- Author:10
Beautiful art, great story, no fanservice and extremely engaging. It has only one volume, five chapters and one special, which means it can be finished in about 2 hours or less. I highly recommend it and can confidently say it's a masterpiece.
Enomoto-senpai wa Tenshi nanka ja Nai
Manga, ? vol, 2024 Me:- Author:-
Like the two mangas above (Otsukaresama, Kurose-kun and Kimi no Yoru ni Fureru), this one is also serialized by RED, and although only in its first chapters - which will apparently be released every two months - has already become one of my favorite ongoing mangas. A promising story involving ghost haunting, complicated relationships and dark comedy.

Monster and Ghost
Manga, ? vol, 2022 Me:- Author:-
One of my favorite ongoing manga, the art is extremely beautiful and the story certainly has a lot to offer. The "horror" part of this manga is the supernatural kind, and the main focus is on the action, but I think it's still fair to mention this work of art. Highly recommended!


*Shounen-ai/not explicit - yet, at least
OΣG!!! =Oh My God=
Manga, ? vol, 2022 Me:- Author:-
I honestly didn't have many expectations when I started reading this manga, but I was surprised by how good it is. A murderer is obsessed with an average employee who lives a monotonous and miserable life. This murderer happens to be his former classmate, while the employee happens to be the only one who showed him the slightest bit of compassion back in school. Highly recommended!

Tenkousei Jinno Murasaki
Manga, 4 vol, 2001 Me:- Author:9
This is the typical manga for those who have found themselves thinking "Man... I want to read something in the style of [insert old, famous shounen/seinen manga here], but BL." The story is well-written and well-developed, as are the characters. The BL part takes the back seat for most of the manga, which really focuses on the plot, while the "horror" is mixed with comedy, action and mystery (as well as some pretty dark/depressing stuff such as bullying and suicide). Highly recommended! 29 chapters, 4 volumes.

*Shounen-ai/not explicit
One-shot, ? vol, 2021 Me:- Author:9
A 12-page one-shot by Mokomoku Ren, Hikaru ga Shinda Natsu's author. Apart from the art which, as you'd expect from the author, is stunningly beautiful, the manga although extremely short is enough to get a good reaction out of the reader, at the same time as sufficient for you to understand what led the characters to do what they did as well as their reasons for doing it - well... sort of. Good for those who like a quick read full of violence and an unhealthy relationship.
Uruwashiki Shuuen
Doujinshi, 1 vol, 2017 Me:- Author:9
Extremely short (oneshot), but with a lot to offer. I don't understand why the rating for this manga is so low, but don't let that stop you from reading it. A great recommendation for those who like zombie-themed manga and a somewhat messed up relationship.
Dear, My God
Manga, 1 vol, 2014 Me:- Author:9
The first time I read this manga years ago, I didn't like it, and now that I've read it again, I can't understand why. It's a manga that doesn't need to use and abuse gore, violence or appealing things to express its dark theme about a priest, a thief and a cult; it has a good story and characters that are very well developed throughout the chapters, which is difficult in a BL, let's be honest. Highly recommended! 4 chapters, 1 volume.

Gesshoku Kitan

Total Eclipse of the Eternal Heart

Gesshoku Kitan
Manga, 1 vol, 2015 Me:- Author:8
I was really surprised by the quality of this manga in general, from the original and engaging story (even though I found the plot a bit predictable), characters who are still extremely likeable even with little development, and most of all the artwork - which is beautiful. I'd say it's a great recommendation if you're looking for a BL with horror elements and a bit of mystery, plus a historical setting. 6 chapters, 1 volume.
Sleeping Dead
Manga, 2 vol, 2020 Me:- Author:8
Okay... This one is only for the strong souls who aren't afraid of getting a little traumatized. An extremely dark manga dealing with trauma and bullying, with a mad scientist, a living dead man, and lots of cannibalism. For those of you wondering, "Is it really a BL or does it just have a homoerotic subtext?" the answer is... yes, it is a BL with an excellent development of the protagonists' relationship. 12 chapters + 1 special, 2 volumes.
Boys of the Dead
Manga, 1 vol, 2019 Me:- Author:8
Another one recommended only for the strongest soldiers who have read a lot of traumatic stuff and no longer fear anything. It's a manga full of themes that might trigger some people, so if you're not very fond of taboo, disgusting and sickening stuff, steer clear of it. 6 chapters, 1 volume.
Running on Empty
Manhwa, 2 vol, 2008 Me:- Author:8
It's not really horror, but I thought it would be good to give it an honorable mention since the relationship between the protagonists is pretty messed up. I've seen some people complain about the art, but don't let that stop you from reading this manhwa about a suicidal 18-year-old and a 25-year-old fugitive and murder suspect. 12 chapters, 2 volumes.

*Shounen-ai/not explicit
Killing Stalking
Manhwa, 8 vol, 2016 Me:- Author:8
Killing Stalking.
The Warehouse
Manhwa, 5 vol, 2016 Me:- Author:7
If you read the manhwa above, you'll want to read this one. Another cliché with captivity, Stockholm Syndrome, an unhealthy relationship, a predictable plot, and a lot of abuse. 72 chapters, 5 volumes.
Double Suicide
Manga, 1 vol, 2020 Me:- Author:6
I honestly don't know what to think about this manga, it's very peculiar and a lot of things are left to the reader to draw their own conclusions - in other words, not explicit, but a sub-context. By the way, the main characters are brothers, so.. yeah. 6 chapters, 1 volume.

*Shounen-ai/not explicit
Color Recipe
Manga, 2 vol, 2015 Me:- Author:-
I've never read this manga, but based on the synopsis and the fact that it was written by Harada, I think we already have an answer as to why it's here. Sounds like a great choice if you like psychological horror, erotica and maybe a bit of trauma. 13 chapters, 2 volumes.
Manga, 7 vol, 2004 Me:- Author:-
