Description
Dark, atmospheric stories connected only by the enigmatic Orochi.

The first story:

One night after fighting with her husband, Lisa goes on a drunk-driving spree and crashes into another car. Fortunately, a mysterious girl named Orochi is there to divert the car just enough, so that Lisa's injuries aren't fatal. As a result, however, Orochi falls asleep for several decades.

Eventually, Orochi wakes to find that she's been taken into the mansion where the two sisters now live together as older women. Truths gradually emerge...

Decent episodic horror

Despite the description given on this page at present, which summarizes only the first story in this series, Orochi is a set of disconnected one-shot horror stories, of about 100 pages each (roughly). The central framing device is the titular Orochi, a mysterious girl with apparent psychic or otherwise supernatural powers. Her connection to the situations that crop up is often very tenuous. In many cases, the manga seems to forget about her entirely and merely pops back in on her to provide commentary or to pull her in as a deus ex machina. Most of the stories are predicated on having some major twist or reveal, of varying quality. Generally the stories themselves aren't terribly strong, and in the ones that don't feature her much, Orochi's presence in the story feels superfluous. That being said, there are still some effective bits in the series. Personally, I just think it would have been better to scrap the (ostensible) main character and let them stand on their own. The actual scares, per se, are minimal to nonexistent. It's more along the lines of a set of morbid morality tales, maybe comparable to a dry and less schlocky "Tales from the Crypt".
