Being a big fan of horror, I was anxious to check this one out and it surely didn't disappoint me. As the summary states, some of the stories may only be 2 pages long, but the horror these few pages emanate can strike one dumb at times.The plots are usually small and don't brag on, but are very effective in their purpose.
It is aptly titled 'Seeds Of Anxiety', as it certainly kept me hooked and made me experience 'horror' which is defunct and hard to find these days.
A must read!

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.

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.

Woah, this is good. Like oriana3k said, those eyes really are freaky.
Japanese supernatural culture beats all those North-American cheeseball
chainsaw villagers. The stories are short, but that just makes it better,
because there can be horror in every page, unlike in those long stories
where they have those boring conversations for twelve pages and then something
just jumps there and the reader is like: uhhuh?
You should read this when burning the midnight oil. smile

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.

But the third volume is not so... The scariest is the first volume. I read it when I was alone in the house in the middle of the night (housemates out somewhere), and yeah it was really creepy. But then again, I am easily scared.

I like horror stories and all, but MY GOD, this freaks me out. I'm used to stories that come to a definite conclusion, but when reading this, be prepared for unexplained occurrences and eyes that you. That keep watching you. *shiver*

An interesting read if you've got some company. And probably not right before bedtime.

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:

A great read for fans of the genre. A collection of shorts that feature some truly frightening images, some of which stick with you long after. The stories are set up quickly but with believable subjects that add depth to the scare.

As a long time fan of Japanese horror in past and modern history, I found this collection to be a compelling expression of the powerful sensation of fear that I've come to love. Needless to say, fans of the films Ringu, Ju-On and Kairo will find a lot to love here.
