I also recommend to read Fuan no Tane.
It's basically a collection of japanese urban legends, with a nice art. Reading it at 3AM gave me the chills.


File: 1383334068632.jpg (199.7 KB, 500x740, うずまき.jpg)

■ AUTHOR: Junji Ito
■ ARTIST: Junji Ito
■ SUMMARY: A must read for horror manga fans!
"Kurozu-cho, a small fogbound town on the coast of Japan, is cursed. According to Shuichi Saito, the withdrawn boyfriend of teenager Kirie Goshima, their town is haunted not by a person or being but by a pattern: uzumaki, the spiral, the hypnotic secret shape of the world. It manifests itself in small ways: seashells, ferns, whirlpools in water, whirlwinds in air. And in large ways: the spiral marks on peoples bodies, the insane obsessions of Shuichi s father, the voice from the cochlea in your inner ear. As the madness spreads, the inhabitants of Kurôzu-cho are pulled ever deeper, as if into a whirlpool from which there is no return…"

■ ARTIST: Katsuhisa Kigitsu
■ SUMMARY: Fran can make anyone into anything, raise the dead, switch heads and bodies, and give you those eyes that you've always wanted. But do you actually want them? Is it a good thing to raise the dead? Do the ends justify the means? And does Fran care?

One of the best fucking self-imposed horror experiences I ever had right there. Granted, some of them just have that X-Files weirdness to them more than horror, but there's something for everyone in there. The ones that DO get to you REALLY get to you.

For me, this one was definitely one of those.

>naruto, bleach, wan piss, shitty korean sports dramu

Or maaaaaybe they just have different tastes than you? Just sayin'

Did you seriously just diss one piece?

Anyway, I seem to recall some manga that was extremely abstract and surreal, where the author was playing around with not just the story but the manga itself, breaking the 3th wall in a way. I don't think there was any text whatsoever. I think there were lots of loops and weird perspective changes. Anyone know what I'm talking about? I know this is vague but those who read that manga might know what I'm talking about.



My guess would probably be something by Shintaro Kago. Based on what you've said, the main ones that come to mind are these two:


The Memories of Others:

Lots of his stuff is rather surreal and plays with the boundaries of manga to some extent though, and I'm not familiar with all his stuff so it's possible it could have also been something else by him.


File: 1383636380974.jpg (123.13 KB, 728x1060, 01_025.jpg)

I thought it was dumb until
and the page you first linked.

I deal with a lot of my fears by not looking at what I'm afraid of, and reading that was just –
fucking terrifying. I had the best kind of chills for a month after.


Yes this was the manga I was talking about. Thanks :)



>>623 here; I'm not the same anon who you were quoting there. Sorry, but I felt I had to point it out.

Yes, Fuan no Tane has that feel that it could be real which makes it more spooky. It played with a lot of my fears, and I'm pretty sure a lot of unconcious fears too. So yes, it gives the fucking chills.
That one is one that shocked me deeply as well because I do something like you about my own fears, and I am nyctophobic too, so you can see how it made me shat brix.


Oh snap. I'm >>635 - and that was EXACTLY the other one I'd contemplated posting. We are in agreement; this kind of horror is the best kind.

It's a shame because it's kind of hard to hit that mark…I agree that parts of FnT made me feel I was wasting my time, but then these things pop up that leave you freezing cold for a long time after.


the one with the "baby" in the hospital.


Yesterday I gave a look at some of those.

Strange, but not scary. Interesting, you can say.

This one was awesome.

This was good, but not scary. I even got kinda aroused by the mermaids.

Tonight I'll start Uzumaki. I've read Junji Ito in the past, and it was pretty cool, so I have my expectations high on this one.



So. Damn. Good.

It's a bit dissapoiting that it's flipped/mirrowed, but whatever.


Thanks for the rec man

I recommend to everyone 31 pages by Ito that fucked my shit up for months.

I've been meaning to bring this up here but since everyone seems to love Fuan no Tane Nakayama Masaaki made a second series for it called Fuan no Tane Plus. It's been on translation hiatus for a long time but Slug Chicks (bless them all to the stars and back) recently picked it back up as well as his other series Kouishou Radio which is just like Fuan no Tane in that it's a series of very small one shot stories about spooky things.

Fuan no Tane Plus: http://www.batoto.net/comic/_/comics/fuan-no-tane-r1801

Kouishou Radio: http://www.batoto.net/comic/_/comics/kouishou-radio-r10349


File: 1388564121979.jpg (164.27 KB, 500x554, tumblr_msibs07HS21r4xqamo1….jpg)

Scumbag Loser. Imagine Nakayama Masaaki making a horror manga with an actual plot and recurring characters.


File: 1388586619789.jpg (166.07 KB, 521x647, tumblr_mylepsW73J1r7k0sgo1….jpg)

PANORAMA OF HELL is a shocking, tortuous journey into the depths of one man's postnuclear Hell. Through the confessions of a fiendish Hell painter born in the aftermath of the bombing of Hiroshima, Hideshi Hino tells a nightmarish story, creating a manga masterpiece of black humor, stunning vision, and unflinching imagery.



I wouldn't compare that art to Nakayama Masaaki. That man there seems to have his mouth on the side of his face.



1) I didn't compare the art, but the manga in general, which is evry similar to the themes of Fuan no Tane, for example

2)character is a female, so you haven't even read a single page

3) don't critique comparisons before reading even a single page.



I watched the original movie yesterday. I'm not a huge fan of jap live action, but, since I really enjoy anything indie, I decided to give it a try.
Man, the first part of the movie is kinda crappy, but in the middle it gets really good. I really liked it.


If you liked Fuan no Tane, I recommend Koushiou Radio.


I had to read Kouishou Radio again to get it.
