Well I mean if we think of "the dark one" instead as being "angry villagers about to beat you to death for not respecting their customs" it makes more sense. If you're around a bunch of superstitious weirdos do you really want to take the chance they won't go nuts if you offend them?

 
Of course I'd think twice if I were surrounded by a few dozen paranoid and panicked people believing in some supernatural being and demanding from me I act the way they do. But that wasn't the case in the first couple of chapters, was it? We could argue a thousand 'what-if' scenarios like that, it wouldn't change the original purpose of my comment. My response was only in regards to some people's reaction to the MC thinking and acting like most rational, logical people would about anything superstitious. I didn't think he was being a moron for questioning something I myself would question.
 

If it's just some weird religion or beliefs, you are right about your logic. But as you can see, from ch 2 we can see the girl run in a fucking panic like she's been chased by some serial murderer. And then weird thing happen, the bell rang, a dark creature spawned chasing them. So, i don't know if approaching the suspicious dark "person" seems to be ithe "logical" way for a city boy like him


Have you ever seen what irrational fear can do to people? Especially fear of supernatural? For all we know, he may have thought she was going bonkers over some instilled childhood fear and thought the thing in front of him was some hobo who was in a tragic accident. Actually, if I remember correctly, he did think something along the lines. Clearly, if he's smart enough (and I don't think he really is that stupid as some people think) he's gonna think twice before approaching another twitching mass of decaying flesh to have a friendly chat with it.  
 

You say this with what sounds like spite, but really, you don't even have to rip the MC to bash this story.  When you see your obviously confused friend/son, can you even say that shitdere/useless parents' behavior is even close to natural?  "Let's not explain anything to him and just watch him do stupid things constantly because we have to force the suspense somehow."  Even in Lovecraft, the usual answer to "what is this shit?" was "noone actually knows, but it's unspeakable".  It's a bit cheap, but it's better than this.
 
Basically, when the character behavior is as all around stupid as this, you no longer have horror, you have comedy.  It's still worth reading, but we'll complain about the contrived horror, even if some complaints are misplaced towards the MC.  Then we'll laugh at the result.


I may have been more than a little annoyed at some comments when I replied, I'll admit that. I have nothing against constructive criticism of something or someone but some of those comments were really idiotic, especially given the fact that only a couple of chapters were out and, something I've been trying to stress - the MC reacted like most rational, logical people would when faced with something like that. 

Regarding the story itself, I'm not about to pass judgment on it so easily before reading at least another volume or two. Someone said something about 9 volumes and a slow pace so, for all I know, his father had a good reason for withholding information from him even though it almost did end up in a disaster. Besides, this is supposed to be a mystery horror, right? Do you really expect answers and everything NOT to be so unclear, foggy and ambiguous after only a few chapters of it? 

If you all also hate this so much, the solution is quite simple - move on and read something else that suits your tastes better. Like Keijo. Apparently, that's the "good kind of retarded".

So his dad just does whatever he wants then

Some comments here are absolutely retarded indeed. Clearly we, as the readers, know there's some strange shit going on in this town, there wouldn't be a story otherwise. But everyone's like "OMFG, the MC doesn't see things as I do, what a retard!" Well, no shit, he's not the reader, is he? If I were the MC who spent 10 years in Tokyo and didn't know or remembered about the 6 pm rule, like hell I'd believe in some local monster coming out after sunset to get me. Some logic and rational thought should be applied here, ffs.

 
 

 

Exactly. What does taking one's shoes off in someone else's house have to do with believing in some supernatural being that eats little kids after sunset? How can you even compare the two? Of course I'd take my shoes off upon entering someone else's house, duh. It's the logical and rational thing to do. Staying inside so as not to get eaten by some local apparition in rags after 6pm, isn't. The point is, that the MC reacted like any logical human being when faced with some local monster legend. It's not like the whole world is in some fantasy setting so you'd expect strange shit happening at every corner.

Nah, none whatsoever. You're right about respecting someone else beliefs or traditions. I don't know how respect = practicing them yourself. Plus, there's no comparison inbetween taking off your shoes, or even religion where religious and non-religious should respect each other despite having different beliefs, and actually believing a monster exists.

Wow, someones get's it!

you don't have to believe them but you atleast have to respect their beliefs and traditions. just because you believe something isn't logical, it doesn't mean you have the right to disrespect them especially since you're just a visitor.

 

what, if for example you're used to taking off footwear before entering your house and i visit you, just because i don't practice such an act in my own home, does it give me the right to disrespect your wishes and go in your house with my footwear on? food for thought.

Right, cause if you go to a different town within your own country and they tell you "there are werewolves during lunch time". You're gonna immediately believe it right? Just maybe any normal person would think "yeah, right lol"

i really hate the type of people that's similar to the MC. people who have no respect for the traditions of a place they're visiting. like seriously, even if you have doubts, if the locals who've lived there all their lives say don't do something, then don't fucking do it.

Have you ever heard of Keijo!!!!!! by any chance?

 

Keijo is the good kind of over the top dumb. This is plain retarded.

This is the dumbest manga I've ever read and I heard this got 9 volumes so far ? The fuck

Have you ever heard of Keijo!!!!!! by any chance?

So Saki owns an apartment building and another store and is only like 16?

This main character is trying really hard to die but the story won't let him dammit. Just let him die, he clearly wants it!

This is the dumbest manga I've ever read and I heard this got 9 volumes so far ? The fuck

Then you haven't read much manga. Believe me when I say manga can get dumber, and dumber gets serialized beyond 9 volumes.

Consider it a blessing in disguise.

"I need to find a weapon"

"Oh wait here is a photo album, let's go through it while a monster is clawing at my door"

Like any good horror. Everything stops as soon as you start investigating some rather tedious BS lying around. Don't worry I am pretty sure the monster outside is just sitting there with a hot pot of coffee waiting until the author tells it to get off its lazy ass and scare the idiot MC with retard levels of plot armor to get their asses to investigate shit at another site and then rinse and repeat. Though I am questioning this, if there is a random damn monster that is murdering people after 6 PM if they are not inside their houses then wouldnt it make sense just to you know move out of the crazy monster town? Granted it is filled with 6000 people but what kind of person thinks its a bright idea to either move or be living inside that kind of town? Must be some great real estate there or something.

Short chapters :/

"I need to find a weapon"

"Oh wait here is a photo album, let's go through it while a monster is clawing at my door"

why are people so scared of the dark ones if all you need to do to beat them is to kick them or throw beans at them? they are worse than zombies. one guy with a baseball bat can take care of them no problem...

"This is Lucille and she is awesome..."

Maybe they get worse the more you fight them.

Man, is this Cliffhanger: The Manga?

So do you know whats going to happen then? Do you know what is going on?

 

For now, I have only read first two volumes, and by 'read', I mean that I have only seen the images to see what work awaits me. I am not a translator for this so I can only rely on him to give me bits and pieces of the story and spoil me on demand. xD

 

What I can tell you, without spoiling anything too much for you, is that it should be clear by now that this is a mystery seinen, with its own characteristic pace and development. This isn't some fast-paced shounen with super powers and all that jazz so if you're expecting direct answers and simple laid-out plot after only 5 chapters, you won't get that here. 

I can also tell you that everything and everyone are laid out like that for a good reason and if you can read between the lines, a couple of hints have already been dropped, at least for me to develop a few theories of my own (one has even been partially confirmed by the translator lol). There are multiple layers of mystery about the town and its characters that take time to unfold and peculiar chapter lengths, which is why there are probably so many volumes out.

 

So yeah, I don't know what is going to happen per se, but I don't mind the slow pace because I think the story has potential and I've always been a fan of mysteries that take their time to build up and get resolved. Up to you whether you wanna stay for the ride or not.
