Una muy buena historia de terror que se entiende que pasara a la gran pantalla, pues las imagenes y las situaciones son muy cinematográficas y espeluzantes.
El prólogo es impactante y duro, pero con el inicio la cosa se calma. Por poco, pues ya enseguida conforme avanza el cómic la tensión y el terror aumentan hasta un final brutal, diabólico y muy aterrador.
Me encanta el terror de origen asiàtico, especialmente el más conocido, terror japonés. Pueden parecer todas sus historias calcadas, que usa

Ju-on was the first manga piece I've ever read. Being completely disappointed by the American rendition of the movie 'The Grudge,' my friend suggested I read Ju-on. I was always a comic person, but I was always too lazy to pick up on manga. I was a bit skeptical at first, but later in the book, I started to enjoy it.
Ju-on, thought not one of the most popular mangas, is still a great read and the gore is just so satisfying!

More disjointed than the film, and a completely different story, don't like these as much as the Ring - there's even less reasoning with these vengeful spirits, and don't go into that house whatever you do. No one has burned it to the ground, yet...

There is not much to say about this manga, as not much actually happens. It's The Grudge. The Prequel apparently. It wasn't particularly suspenseful or scary, although one instance near the end is actually rather terrifying to me personally. It's just... a Grudge manga. It's ok.

A creepy story about how grudges can last even after death and can hurt innocent lives as a result. If you like quick and to the point deaths, and manga, then this is the book for you.
