Description
What do two Japanese detectives, a naked man on a city street, and a roundworm from Botswana all have in common? In the first volume of Manhole, Ken Mizoguchi and Nao Inoue investigate a string of bloody and mysterious murders, but their work uncovers a deadly biological agent which poses a threat of epidemic proportions. An unlikely lead starts them in the pursuit of a mysterious self-titled photographer, but meanwhile the infections keep spreading. The series may be best described as the thrilling combination of a detective story with biological horror.

Kitajima from Reset has a guest role in volume 3.

I like this author's works a lot. This one has really good art and a suspensful mystery/horror plot. I love the fact that one of the main character's a pretty strong female. Anyway, the parasite story was written very well and it seriously creeped me out. I found the whole thing pretty realistic.

Both the storytelling, pacing and art is top-notch, that make story solid though the the plot is so-so. Don't expect so much about horror and mystery, just enjoy it as a story about an old detective and an young companion who solve a psychological case, you find out that this manga is pretty interesting.

this manga is definitely not the best depiction the horror genre.
there is a satisfactory amount of gore and the storyline is interesting enough, but i find all the attitudes of the victims and police far too predictable and frsutrating. It's too unrealistic for paramedics and policemen to act the way they do in the manga, after every incident.

At the beggining i expected a horror manga, but this actually gains points for being a good mystery. It didn't go overboard, it was kept simple, tidy and enjoyable. The art is also nice and fits the theme. The plot was solid as i expected and the characters were interesting.
While this doesn't get a 10 from me it gets a 9, because for what it is, it is very good, very good indeed.

I can really say that this one of those mangas that will make you say "eww". The characters were pretty good in this one with how the used their minds to solve the case and thee art was top notch as well.

People who are a fan of horror series with smart characters should really try this one.

I started reading this a few days ago and wow... just wow. I'm not usually a reader of horror/mystery manga but this is brilliant. It's intelligent, and suspenseful. What really attracts me is that the villain makes sense, he's just using really trashy methods.

Cannot wait for the end of this. If anyone can suggest anything similar you gotta let me know. I think I may have found a new Manga type addiction!

When i first read this i was expecting it to be some kind of horror manga, but as i read into its more of a detective story, and a good one at that, it reads really quick and the pacing is great, you finish one chapter and just jump to the next one. Can't wait until this is finished being scanned.

Storytelling and pacing (so far) is actually quite good. The only real complaint I have is the art which, while not totally bad, really lacks the detail and atmosphere this kind of story needs.

Certainly not one of the best horror manga I have read. Its not bad, though. Although, it doesn't have much of a Horrifying feel to it, that might just because I read a ton of horror manga.

Its still pretty good though.
