The story is set in a village of a countryside, called Hinamizawa.
Maebara Keiichi, moves to the village from the city. It’s his first summer to spend in that village.
In Hinamizawa, a unique festival is held every summer and Keiichi goes to the festival with his girls’ friends that year. However, Keiichi happens to hear the rumor, saying “Someone dies as it gets closer to the festival every year.”
The next day of the festival, one person actually is seen dead.
People in the village says that it happens because of the curse from the God, “Oyashiro Sama”, enshrined by the villagers……?
The original game was released around 2002, and in 2020, newly made Anime will be aired (The content is the same as the original)! (It was supposed to be aired in July but was postponed) So! Let’s review all the episodes by reading Manga!

The story is set in the modern world.
A boy, Sakakibara Koichi, who transfers to a certain school, realizes that there is “a girl, who is not recognized by her classmates.”
He finds out her name is Misaki Mei. Koichi asks her why he can talk only to Misaki and why everybody in class always seems “scared of something”.
Misaki never replying, Koichi starts thinking that it’s him that is not normal. Meanwhile, one student from their class dies from such a cruel “accident”.
Due to the accident, Koichi gets to know a secret, hidden in their “class”.
This title includes a strong mystery element as well as many horror elements! Once you find out the truth, you would never enjoy the best part of this story! This is a well-plotted story so please be very careful about the spoilers before you even start!

School-Live! (Gakkougurashi!)
がっこうぐらし!

https://manga-republic.com/product/product_page_45613.html
The main protagonist of this title is some girls, living at school! They enjoy living everywhere at school, classrooms, rooftop…… as their living space! There is a secret, though, hidden in this school……!?
The original was manga but once it was made into Anime, it went viral! I avoided giving you the spoilers as much as possible too for those who haven’t read it yet! It came to an end just the other day so if you want to know how the girls ended, check it out!

Ghost Hunt
ゴーストハント

https://manga-republic.com/product/product_page_140045.html
The main protagonist, Mai, tries to make sure if the rumor, “there is a ghost in the old school” is true. However, they break the camera, stuck with another camera for the psychic phenomenon!
The owner of the camera, Shinuya Kazuya, demands Mai, who is a student of the school that “she should be an assistant of terminating the ghosts, instead of paying for the damage” but……!?
This title is the one I (Saori) want to recommend most! It’s a mystery-solving×horror manga! The characters try to solve various psychic phenomenon, ghost, curse, mysterious phenomenon by purifying them or in a scientific way! It doesn’t mean that it includes a strong mysterious element but the story is built perfectly and yet interesting and super spooky too…… It has been made into Anime too and it’s even scarier…… so check that out too!
By the way, the illustrations in this story are super beautiful, which makes ghosts or spirits, appearing in the story, even more scary. Be careful.

Fuan no Tane
不安の種

https://manga-republic.com/product/product_page_685682.html
When you are walking somewhere,
When you are talking with someone,
When you are alone,
have you felt “anything wrong”?
If you have, you’d better not make eye contact.
Because “they” might be watching you too.
This is the second most recommended title by Saori (me)! This one……well, how can I say. It’s really spooky. It’s not scary but “spooky”. Have you had a bad or a spooky feeling about something in your daily life? If you have, I bet you might unconsciously be avoiding them…… but what do you think is “causing” that, which makes you feel that way?

Lights Out

※You’ll hear no loud sound but it might threaten you. Be careful.
Watching this two-and-a-half-minute-horror short film will make you feel exactly like you’re reading this Fuan no Tane. When you feel something wrong in your life or when you realize what’s causing it…… This title is a short-story series, depicting such an abnormal life, which someone somewhere might have.

Itou Junji Kessakushuu
伊藤潤二傑作集

https://manga-republic.com/product/product_page_14786.html
This volume includes some of Ito Junji (the maestro of the horror manga world)’s best horror short stories. Each story stands alone but especially the one depicting a girl, named 富江(Tomie) is very popular.
This is the third most recommended title by Saori (me)! Speaking of the maestro in the Japanese horror manga…… it’s this guy! All the titles shared here are quite old but they have been made into Anime, the play, the movie, and the drama! It’s that popular manga artist in Japan!
The most recent one collaborated with ‘Identity V’ (Daigo Jinkaku)! One of his masterpieces, ‘Tomie’ was also perfectly replicated with the characters in the limited version costumes too!

Alright now! This is all for today! Every horror title I shared here is highly recommended so give it a try!
Oh, by the way, for some titles, even Saori (I) couldn’t sleep because they were too scary…… so don’t even try if you don’t do the horror!
Bye-bye~!
