It seems like a fun series. The 6 tilting on 7 rating is about accurate. It's nothing groundbreaking, but overall it's a nice little manga to pass the time and the chaos is pretty laughable.

A series should be ranked by what its trying to achieve. I see a ridiculous slasher movie in manga form, if that was the goal it did it well.
The problem is that genre tags only go so far.

I swear to god if this get's to 7 i'm no longer going to take mangadex rating serious i just don't see how you people enjoy this if your going to say "Why is this 6.5 it's good what's wrong with you?" read this thing again can someone just say why they like this? I just don't see how it's good at all as anything now matter what it is it's at most 6.50

You saw a picture of a high school girl with a big kitchen knife and a distorted pumpkin mask as the cover, and you somehow expected this to be something ///moody///? What part of literally any of this made you ever think this would be anything other than a really stereotypical slasher?

Not sure the tags are the problem here...

This needs an adaptation, live-action slasher movie with the songs included.

Mangadex needs a "Camp" tag, because the tags this manga has are misleading. I was expecting Junji Ito-tier moody teenager bait, and I got a goddamn slasher flick. This is just Slaughter High but with big anime titties. It's just south of needing a parody or comedy tag, but there's no actual comedy, and it does what it does sincerely.

Petition for a "Camp" tag!

"A deformed female human"
Jeez why can't they just say "a deformed girl"? it's not like she suddenly turned into frog that you need to be very specific about being "human"

I feel bad for the artist he got stuck with a shit writer like my god it's the not worst but it's still bad But it's bad enough for me to hate it but not bad enough for me to just stop reading it it's the worse kind of awful.

@Tray i agree that its very well done, but i just think some people are over reacting. There's a lot worse out there that have a better impact due to also having gripping story's that add meaning behind the horror. Haven't read any of these in a while but Fran, Dorohedoro, Metamorphosis, and Mai-chan's Daily Life hit me as being harder hitters then this.

As a horror movie fan, I think the mangaka did a great job on the gore detail.

Main vilain have a casual super strengh and slices throught skulls and bone with a butcher knife like it's warm butter, it's like mike miyers but with a cute petite body and a kawaiiiiii pumpkin mask.

But i'm here for the plot, juste to see how over the top it can get. i'm now expecting MainVilain to be able to dodge bullets, ourun the shinkansen and provoque the ragnarok like it's nothing.

The characters are all retarded....so that the random bits of internet-speak actually fit.

The zombie strength is real too (though not obvious), holy shit. It actually is kinda funny.

So far this is a load of fun, hoping for more uploads

Also geeking hard over the fact that the artist is someone I've already been following, cool to see the dude making manga now

Kinda makes me wonder how much personal experience and sentiment from the author is in works such as this one.

Yeah the artist is good though he's not give a lot to work with. The only other work I found from him doing a quick search was a H-manga from 2013 and he's art has improved so much from then.
JohnnyC 17 days ago
@UncleQ It's super cliched and the only thing worth it is the art honestly. Makes me more interested to see more work by Taniguchi Seima with different authors.

By slasher standards this is rather bland and boring. I think the author just googled how to write a slasher story and then put in the minimum amount of effort.

Step 1. Introduce killer with a strange appearance.
Step 2. Make that first kill memorable.
Step 3. Introduce a group of victims that will be killed off in crazier and crazier ways.
Step 4. Hint that one of them in the group will be the lone survivor.
Step 5. ????
Step 6. Profit.

It's total paint by number with this manga. Though I will give credit where credit is due, the melon baller to the face was sort of creative. That is unless the author stole that from some where.

Starting to look like one of those clichéed horror series where you just can't relate to the characters, but I guess it's fine if you're only in for the gory stuff...

Wow...I can't even imagine the thought process to even consider writing and drawing this...

This should really have an extra tag or something IMO to be filtered on the homepage.
