    One thought on “Scary Book Volume 1: Reflections”

    1. Ehis manga was kind of weak in the scary department. This manga is made up of two different stories. First story is about a girl named Emi who lives in a house with a giant mirror. Emi is fascinated with her reflection and gazes at herself daily. One day her reflection escapes the mirror and wreaks havoc on Emi making her friends and family turn against the real Emi. It was a little creepy but mostly childish. There is a funny part where a boy from her school continuously gets beaten up by his b [...]

    2. This sucked. I was excited to read it because a couple years ago I'd gotten some Japanese capsule toys which depicted little horror scenes, but since all the print on the box was in Japanese I never knew what the context was. When I saw one of these Umezu books in a store, I recognized the art right away, and being a fan of horror manga I thought these would be great. This one, however, was total crap. It was trite and obvious, and the art looked like it was from 50 years ago, but most important [...]

    3. I was rather disappointed with this - from the title "scary book" I was expecting it to be scary and dark in keeping with the works of people like Junji Ito of whom I'm a big fan. This is very tame by comparison. The first story tells of a vain girl who's reflection comes to life and starts taking over her life. Its an interesting concept but feels more like a cautionary tale than a horror story. The second shorter story looks at a Samurai and the lengths he will go to, to get revenge.This has n [...]

    4. Realmente me gustó el manga y fue el primer volumen que empece a leer de Umezu, las historias me gustaron mucho y considero que fueron más que todo de terror psicológico, la verdad puedo disfrutar mucho este tipo hasta llegar a los extremos y ver las cosas más bizarras (en el sentido anglosajón de la palabra) y sangrientas y no tener problema, da una perspectiva diferente del horror y me recuerda mucho a stephen king; de hecho, a Umezu se le ha proclamado ser el stpehen king pero del manga, [...]

    5. Definitely not as good as the other Kazuo Umezu stuff I've read so far. This volume is just two stories, a longish one about a vain girl whose reflection comes out of the mirror to get her and a shorter one about revenge in feudal Japan. Neither are bad, but neither are really great. Not as creepy or strange as the stories in Cat Eyed Boy, nor as good as the stuff in The Drifting Classroom. Still, not too bad, I'll read the other volumes, if I get my hands on them.

    6. Very low 3. Nice title eh? The first (longer) story about the reflection bore many similarities to stories like Tomie by Junji Ito. Apparently its a huge staple in horror manga to have beautiful doppleganger girls who are also violent and good at picking up guys. Anyway it wasn't that scary of a story. Nice concept, but never builds to a fever pitch or presents a real aura of danger. I do like how he drew the main character(s) though.The other story was paced better, and took place in feudal jap [...]

    7. Eh. Umezu's illustration skills are a bit color by numbers (can I say that for a manga?! Do I perhaps know what I'm talking about? Have I read that much manga!) The first story in this book is very scary kids movie scary -- ooh Evil Mirror Girl. The second one is a bit more brutal and consequently compelling and suspenseful. But the combination of.c predictability and uninspired illustrations wasnd of a snoozer. I'd be willing to try more Umezu, though, I need all the Japanese horror I can get.

    8. This is pretty ok. Doesn't have the energy and interesting characterization of Cat-Eyed Boy (who actually makes a cameo here), and is more on a par with Museum of Terror by Junji Ito in its approach to horror. The tales are both cruel and weirdly repetitive and capture a familiar energy to that in Edogawa Rampo's short stories. I'm still an Umezu junky though and will stay on the look out for Volume 2 and 3 of the series.

    9. The Mirror: (Rating: 3) A girl obsessed with her beautiful reflection in the mirror must face her doppleganger when it escapes into her world. The plot is a bit predictable and dull, not all that scary. Demon of Vengeance: (Rating: 4) Much better than the first story. A lord's subject sets out for revenge against the cruel and unusual punishment that was exacted on his son as the result of an accident. Very upsetting and sad.

    10. I saw this compared to Stephen King. Since I was looking for something scary to tide me over til Junji Ito's new collection, I gave it a shot. It was just kind of blah. Not scary, awkward translation. Not terrible, but extremely forgettable.

    11. I had heard that Kazuo Umezu was a master of horror manga and inspiration for creators of The Ring and other Japanese horror movies, so I checked this volume out. It was ok; not too scary but interesting nonetheless. I'll have to read some of his other manga to get a better impression.

    12. I don't know why a lot of people didn't like this volume. I really enjoyed it! I was unexpectedly pulled into it's story, especially that last one in the back. I thought the whole thing was very captivating.It's the best out of the trilogy, I think.

    13. Not really scary at all, but the initial plot as well as the psychological aspect of the story is awesome! It's worth reading if you're into horror.
