Everyone keeps saying Parasyte... REALLY??!

After stuff like Gantz, I found it absolutely UN-disturbing, in a nostalgic kinda "oooh those were them innocent days, nothing like the 21st century" way...

Looking through most of the post I see that many suggests action horror, which is fine, but if one is looking for that classic horror feeling there are many books which I think are better suited to be described as pure horror. And when I say pure horror I mean books which tell a storyline based on atmosphere rather than gore and ghosts. The feeling should probably be that of a Silent Hill or perhaps The Thing am I right?

Well here are two of my favourites.

Blue Heaven
This is psychological horror thriller about a killer on a huge cruise ship. You get the sense of isolation with the limited setting and the writing is really good. I highly recommend it.

Also psycological horror thriller. People have probably seen the anime (which is great), but the manga is very, very good and a must read for anyone who really want to dive into depths of human psychology.

Here are two REALLY great ones that everyone might not know about:


The main protagonist, the shy Jun Naruse, is a rather average guy who works for a electronic company and loves to draw. He falls in love with Megumi whom he met at a shop selling drawing materials and an intimate relationship develops. A few days later the office gets attacked and when the criminal tries to shoot a little girl he saves her by jumping in front of her.

A month passes until he wakes up again and is told that half his brain got destroyed and he only survived because someone donated half a brain. Everything seems to be fine, he quickly recovers and is happy, however he begins to change... is the donated brain the reason for that? Or is it just a side effect of the medicine?


Ningyo no Mori (Mermaid Saga)
Legend has it that if a human eats a mermaid's flesh, they will be granted eternal life. But is that a blessing or a curse? Immortal lovers Yuta and Mana travel through Japan and the centuries longing for a normal life. On their journey, they meet others who have consumed the flesh of a mermaid in hope of becoming immortal. But the powerful substance affects each person differently. Yuta and Mana are two of the lucky ones. Others are fated to die or transform into a savage monster, a "lost soul." Mermaid Saga contains three of Takahashi's uniquely macabre mermaid tales, A Mermaid Never Smiles, The Village of the Fighting Fish, and Mermaid Forest. Each revolves around Yuta, who wanders for hundreds of years, seeking a mermaid to cure him of his immortality.

I don't know if I'll even consider Gantz or Shingeki No Kyojin as horror, let alone Deadman Wonderland. I'll go with Drifting Classroom.

Apocalypse no toride
*Very serious and gets to the point most of the times
*interesting plot and not cliche like it came from a sickness ( like a cold biggrin)
*very misterious at times
*sometimes and not to often to spoil the mood it's funny
*The art is amzeballs ( yes i use that word) and emphases the gore

She will never die but live on forever and she will wait but no-one will ever come. You cannot share pain but only bring it through your suffering. Fear is something that is created when you anxiety is around. Life and death are not to far but in fact very close. You will be forgotten when you die.
