Manga Recommendations VI and Happy Halloween!

Manga Hunter here! Today is Halloween and so I decided to recommend manga with a little bit on the dark side and some comedy…mostly comedy.

Doronkyu by: YOSHIMURA Kai

Sakura Kaho is a high school student who can see ghosts and monsters. Due to that and her scaredy-cat personality, she is often literally loved and stalked by these entities, much to her terror and her fearless friend Aki’s entertainment.

This is a manga I read just last year. All the ghosts aren’t scary. They are pretty funny, especially when they try to sow their affections to the main character girl.


Dokuhime by: MIHARA Mitsukazu

It starts with poisonous herbs under the cradle. Then under the sheets. And inside the clothes. Even mixed in the milk that they feed the newborn. This way the child gradually gets used to poisons and becomes the perfect assassination tool – the “Poison Princess” whose every kiss, tear, and even touch bring death. Her only chance of survival is to fulfill her duty as an assassin and find a way to live on in the enemy land she is sent to…if her heart is strong enough.

(summary from Aerandria Scans)

I admit that I wasn’t into it when I read the first chapter, but after chapter one, the main plot shows. Warning: it is a tragedy, but there is a bit of happiness in it, especially when you consider the feelings of the main character girl.


Enigma by: Sakaki Kenji

Haiba Sumio is a student at a Tokyo High School with an interesting ability… He occasionally falls asleep and wakes up with premonitions of the future written out on his “Dream Diary”. With this ability, Sumio helps out people in trouble before anything bad happens, until one day when his peaceful life completely changes.

(summary from Baka-Updates)

This was a manga I read a long time ago. It’s a play or die situation manga and it reminds of Saw, if you know what I mean. Chances are you people might enjoy this.


Those are my manga recommendations for Halloween today. As always, please support the creators of these works and the translators when you can. Happy Halloween.
