    Dragon Head by MOCHIZUKI Minetaro


    Dragon Head
    By: MOCHIZUKI Minetaro
    Genre: Adventure, Drama, Horror, Mystery, Psychological, Seinen, Tragedy
    Serialized In: Young Magazine
    Publisher: Kodansha

    In the horror of witnessing so many classmates perish before his eyes in a violent train wreck, Teru discovers two survivors in the tunnel: Ako and Nobuo. But salvation from this bloody carnage is far from their grasp. As they try to dig out from the wreck in order to come up with a plan to stay alive, the lack of light and food, combined with the stench of death and decay, will lead one member of the group down a dark and demented path. And with sudden, violent earthquakes shaking the tunnel, escaping to the outside world may lead them to an even greater danger...

    Damn, what an exciting hidden retro gem by a mangaka that should be explored more.

    Loving it so far, I love this oldschool manga style. Very dark and violent just how I like it. Mochizuki Minetaro's the guy who wrote zashiki onna, love this guys work!

    I am so eager to read more form this guy, damn, sadly not much of his work is scanned, though there can be gems like this found sometime. I got attracted by the art first, but then the story turned out to be just as good.

    Contemporary seinen lack the kind of "other wordly" art style that these retro/psychological/horor seinen have.

    Somehow reminds me of both Uzumaki and Battle royale. Thanks for the post Josef K, really liking it!
