You should try "Confessions". Its a 1-volume manga by both of them.
You know those situations when people confess their darkest secrets before dying? Right, a guy in a similar situation confesses to murder. Only to find out that
a) He's not going to die
b) The only guy who heard his confession is his best friend
c) The two of them are isolated in a cabin far away from civilisation
d) Both of them are driven to paranoia.
I also recommend "Spirit of the Sun" by Kawaguchi Kaiji.
Japan gets hit by a series of natural disasters and the government is crippled. In response, China & US began occupying...,"giving foreign aid" to the nation. The story takes place several years after the incident, with a Japanese refugee in Taiwan who lost his memory.
Volume 1 is the prologue might be a bit overwhelming. The real story starts with Volume 2.

What about Masanori Morita's works:
Most of his stories are heroic-style like (maybe you've heard of his famous Rokudenashi Blues?) but his drawing is very beautifully realistic.
FYI: His recent work is Beshari Gurashi - it's five-volumes manga about the boys who dream to be a professional joke-teller. I haven't read it though, but I saw his realistic drawing improve a lot.
Also the works by Tsukasa Hojo (he was Inoue Takehiko's mentor), his past famous works are City Hunter and Cat's Eyes. The drawing wasn't quite realistic in both stories, it has just started to get awesome in any work after City Hunter.
With him I recommend F. Compo and Angel Heart.
Hope you really get what you're looking for!

Thanks guys! I'll check it out!
And I've looked for Confession on the web, but no go, where did you find it?
Confession has been scanlated quite a long time ago. So its hard to find unless you know how to use irc.

this is awesome ,thank you all I'm have the perfect excuse not to study,I'll be busy for a week at least!
Hi, I'm looking for a manga similar to Death note. The thing I liked most about it is the mind games and the darkness of the series. So if you know of any manga that is in the same genre I would really appreciate if you would share your knowledge with me.
To the mods:
Why not stickied a Seinen suggestion thread?? I think there is a lot of them popping out everywhere.
I don't get it(I'm new and stuff) ;could you explain?
This works. But the 8 pages drown out some lesser known ones which I know are good. (I actually took the time to read all 8-9 pages) So thats why no one uses them I suppose.
The occasional underrated series will appear and drown beneath the hundreds of posts in one thread. If there are 10 pages of suggestions, people will read say pages 1-3 or pages 8-10.
So, anyhow. How are the ones we recommended? Any good?

I've looked for Confessions on Manga-sketchbook and manga-screener with no luck. I think I'm gonna hit back IRC...
This is the trigger.
