This was just okay. It reminded me of Hell Girl in both the format and the effect of it on me. This was a series of short stories (two were vaguely tied together) about hauntings in a subway tunnel. The dead souls living in the tunnel try to pull in the living, either out of revenge for being murdered or because they are looking to cause pain, and there is a guardian of the tunnels who intervenes on behalf of whomever he thinks is morally right.

The stories were just too short to make me feel the...more
Dark Metro is an on-going horror anthology (we have the first 2 volumes) set in Tokyo’s subway. Ghosts, zombies, and other undead are waiting to punish humans who stray into their domain — and some of those humans have it coming.

Fajn manga o temných tajemstvích metra... x)) Je napsaná přesně ve stylu japonské mangy... i kresby, i příběhy.. :D Ač jsou jednotlivé povídky až bolestně krátké, přesto mají své kouzlo a já se snad ani nedokážu rozhodnout, která se mi líbí nejvíce. Škoda, že jsem to četla teď po Sandmanovi, který zvedl laťku neuvěřitelně vysoko, určitě bych tomu jinak dala více hvězdiček... x))

Tato manga byla úžasně strašidelná a hlavně nebyla jako ty nudné holčičí.Ty ilustrace i příběh byly úchvatně propracované.Pro fanoušky bud hororu nebo mangy to ideální.Po přečtení už nikdy nepojedu sama v noci metrem. ;D
Short stories have never been my cup of tea. These are fast moving, sometimes gory and quite enjoyable. I won't probably be bying the next volume, though.

Ati2 jalan di stasiun malem2 apalg klo uda gak ada kereta,sapa tau ada another being yg lg ngawasin :p
A very ordinary one, not scary, with no real point.
Another rating: 7/10 (for whole series!)
