too short

devoid of any characters or plots we can invest ourselves into, the 'creep' factor is way down. readers need a way to insert themselves into the story but these short vignettes have nothing to hold on to thus i'm unable to finish this.

The shortness works. It sets a mood, not a definitive plot. Because of that, it slowly becomes more terrifying as you read. One chapter, two chapters go by, sure, it's interesting. Twenty go by, and you're somewhat scared. Two volumes, three volumes later, you realize you don't want to turn off the lights or go to the bathroom.

Pure crystallized skin-crawling paranoia

There's no real overarching major story here, no "plot" to speak of. It's not even really a collection of "stories", per se. All this manga happens to be is a collection of moments of intense surreality or creepiness. Almost any given chapter would easily qualify for being the scariest moment of any movie that featured it, and it consists of nothing but these moments. In that regard, it's a fine bit of cuisine, giving just the choicest cut of pure blood-chilling disturbing feelings and moving on to the next morsel. While it won't win any awards for storytelling, as far as just pure, distilled unease goes, there is not much that can compete.

the correct way to read it, imo, is to read through a whole volume at once, and after each chapter, stop for a little while and think what it's about. separately, they are not scary. but if you read a bunch of them together, your thought may change. you begin to view things under a different, somewhat delusional light. think of it this way: 20 people tell you there's something behind you, but you cannot see anything. how would you feel?
a small note: volume 3 is more cheerful than its predecessors.

This is kind of scary. Just read the first volume before going to bed. Thought I'd read all three volumes in a row, but it's windy and dark outside, and I don't want a freaky face appearing in the window.

Uh-uh... I think I'm just going to sleep now.

i mean.. im not easily scared but since im asian.. and you guys are kindda westerners.. i feel that maybe the stories are just closer to home! i mean, most of this stories are like the kind of stories that we exchanged during those dark, elecric-less nights.. i just realized that some of them are actually what I actually fear and most of them are actually real urban legends..
I mean.. im not usually a scaredy cat but its just maybe you guys don’t get it as much as I do.. I mean I cant even get past the frigging 2nd volume!! D:

Worst horror ever. Nothing scary, even though I do understand that most of the short stories are based on Japanese superstitions that are unfamiliar to foreigners. But I was mostly bothered by the fact, that the stories were 3-5 pages long. No explanations, nothing, just flashing random scenes.

Utter shit.

I didn't like all the eyes that were spread throughout the manga. They were annoying.

The stories weren't very scary? I did get a slight chill when I read through some of them, but for the most, I was really annoyed at all the eyes. They were really very irking. I remember one of the stories was really funny, in a stupid sort of way. LOL.

Anyway, I was sorely disappointed by the first volume. I don't think I'll be reading this again.

It wasn't scary... I was a bit disappointed because of that.
The first volume was the best, in my opinion.
Favorite stories would be v1 ch24, and v2 ch14.

Japan sure has some interesting ghost stories.
And I liked that some were "just there", without any particular purpose.
All kinds of spirits. Good variety.
The art was nice.

I wonder why so few people have read it.
Then again, it has been on my wish list for years until I've read it=/

I read this at night and in the day and I wasn't as scared. I think it might have something to do with watching the Guinea Pig films already. The art is okay, but the stories should be at least seven pages.
