Description
One night, mild-mannered college student Mori Hiroshi bumps into a woman visiting his next-door neighbour, Yamamoto. Abnormally tall and dirty-looking, the woman has long, straggly hair, wears a man's coat and carries shopping bags in both hands. But then, without warning, she abandons her dogged pursuit of Yamamoto and shifts her attentions to Hiroshi himself. Who is this woman, what is she after, and will Hiroshi ever be able to shake her off?

Note: Originally published in 1993 - before the term "stalker" was acknowledged by Japanese society - Zashiki Onna became an unexpected hit despite being serialised only for ten weeks. Regularly chosen as "the scariest manga ever" in magazine horror specials.

the first chapter[maybe even the 2nd] was ok i guess
it built up pretty well
the rest failed
i did not think the woman looked very scary

and the ending was bad
not very scary.

Intense, thrilling, suspenseful are some of the words I'd use to describe this. It's exciting and even very interesting to watch the main character's demise as he's entrapped in the delusions of the insane.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
That "the woman" truly has no identity and looks at "him" as a prey and even a projection for her own desires and compulsions makes the story even more creepy and fascinating.


The letdown was the ending, though. After all that suspense and buildup, the story crashes down like a house of cards. Even if the identity of the stalker was never to be revealed, I felt the story could've ended in a less anti-climatic manner.

Anyways, if you're looking for something to creep you out, you should try this manga.

Man, when there were only seven chapters released, I obsessed about it. It was a cliffhanger worthy of being in a TOP 10. But seriously, the final chapters sucked ass.
The ending was alright, but ... bah.

Seriously, prolonged exposure to this manga can turn you into a nervous wreck.

The fact that it CAN have such an influence on the reader means that it's an awesome manga. If you don't mind a trip to the dark side, you've gotta read this!
