I've had enough manga about romance, adventure, ecchi, action and comedy, I want to read some creepy mangas.

I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
what the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here


What I'm looking for are mangas which give you the creeps and make you say 'what the hell', leaving you dumbfounded as to what meaning they have.
Please let me know if anything comes to mind

references:
I am a huge admirer of Itou Junji and I like each one of his works,
I read Lullabies from Hell and really enjoyed it
I finished Hideout and liked it
I've also read Goth, it was awesome
but I can't seem to like the works of Kago Shintaro

what I do not seek:
-shoujo-like drawings
-abstract drawings
-josei
-romance
-comedy
-sex-themed stories

Thank you in advance, I appreciate any response

EDIT: for those who want to read some creepy mangas:

All works of Itou Junji
All works of Kago Shintaro
Lullabies from Hell
Hideout
Goth
Sky High
Franken Fran
Kami no Kodomo
Ibitsu
Nijigahara Holograph
Fuan no Tane
Fuan no Tane plus
Zashiki Onna
Warau Kyuuketsuki
Homunculus
Shounenshoujo Ryouryuuki
Ichi the Killer
Higurashi
The End
Drifting Classroom
Soil
Panorama of Hell
Mr. Arashi's Amazing Freak Show

Well Sky high it's quite creepy, it think... (it has a sequel too)

i also recommend you Franken Fran, if you haven't read it yet.

doubt [TONOGAI Yoshiki) and [m]Another[/m]

"Bungaku Shoujo" to Shi ni Tagari no Douke has comedy and romance in its genre, but its very subtle, and I think you'll enjoy it

Fuan no Tane and Fuan no Tane Plus are pretty great.
I'll add another vote for Ibitsu, and Zashiki Onna comes to mind as well.

thank you for the replies

@aagcnet
Domina no Do! is comedy, ecchi, harem, romance and moreover borderline H, I'm afraid it's not what I'm looking for

@BlackOrion
Skyhigh and Franken Fran definitely fit, but I have read them all

@Sorcha
I have tried reading Doubt and didn't enjoy it, I've read Another
"Bungaku Shoujo" to Shi ni Tagari no Douke is comedy + romance...

@bwfas
Kami no Kodomo, the drawing style is a little abstract, but I'll try it since the premises fit

@sostag, Luna_Tykk, pepoettafy
regarding Ibitsu, Nijigahara Holograph, Fuan no Tane, Fuan no Tane Plus and Zashiki Onna
they fit what I'm looking for but too bad I've read them all before.

Please keep the recommendations coming, thank you

How about Kiben Gakuha, Yotsuya Senpai no Kaidan? It's quite creepy.

Search for 'ero-guro;' a certain group of one-shots should creep out any creep just fine.

btw, you may want to emphasize the word 'not' in your OP.

Suehiro Maruo - Warau Kyuuketsuki

Litchi Hikari Club

There's also Taiyou Matsumoto's work, but they're usually slice-of-life weird.

Kara no Kyoukai: The Garden of Sinners I didn't even understand most of that xD
Kimi ni Shika Kikoenai was somehow interesting
Usotsuki Mi-kun to Kowareta Ma-chan Totteoki no Uso creepy, both of them...

I think all of them are listed as romance, but it's only a minor part...
