Where am I reading? Here!
I found this while I was trying to look for another Shoujo Manga I had in mind that had more of a lighter feel to it, but when I stumble upon this one I can’t help but peek interest because of the tag Horror and Mystery which are, fun fact, one of my favorite tags to read in a Manga.
So if you know any good ones make sure to comment down below~
Don’t worry, this will be a spoiler-free post! This manga is similar to a one shot where each chapters have different stories to tell, different characters, except for the main character which is the story teller of the whole Manga in which you get to know more as the chapters continues. But what interested me is how most of the characters that are shown in each chapters are children.
It’s a combination of different stories, beliefs, stories, that children would tell one another. Some may believe it, some may not, but what’s unique about this manga is how different each stories are and each characters, which I’m glad to see. I could see the maturity with other characters, how others were more selfish and how others were able to get a happy end and a terrible ending.
If your a huge fan of horror stories then I would suggest you guys giving this a read, with a note that most of the stories are children horror stories so it might not be as scary as it seems.
Each of the stories shares different elements as well that children are usually being punished for, an example would be a story about a child not being grateful for their parents, for their siblings, and this as well goes to their own food. This is practically a way to as well scare children and make them learn a valuable lesson.
I do suggest you all to give this a try if you have spare time, and if you’re interested in reading children horror stories. I do admit that some of the stories did spook me a bit, but not to the point where I’d pee my pants.
But that’s all for todays review! I of course would love to hear about your thoughts as well. Don’t forget to give this review a like if you enjoyed these kinds of content, and as well as to follow Sakuranism for more updated posts of weekly anime content!
