Whoever nominated Captain Tsubasa...

As much as it pains me, you're right. In fact, there was always this joke among fans of the M Triplets: Misaki, Misugi and Matsuyama, plus Sorimachi.

But right now, I feel that a lot, and I mean A LOT of series have the same SAO girl face template. Not just within the series, but also without.

Cut the moe. Evil or Very Mad

The description of Suehiro Maruo's work brought to mind someone else. Took a while to remember enough to track them down, but it's Horihone Saizou who specialises in guro and weird half animal/insect people. Not in the encyclopedia is seems, probably because Baka Updates only has one or two non-H titles

I've actually had trouble sleeping after reading some Junji Ito titles.

Especially the one about his cats.

I wanted to vote for Takeuchi's sin at first, but K-On is undoubtedly the worst offender.

Damn, haven't read that one yet. Is that actually scary? I saw a few panels and it looked so bizarre.

I just burned through a bunch of Junji Ito's short stories recently and this was all before I went to bed. So yeah, had trouble going to sleep, worrying about the possibility that some kid with a set of sharp dentures was going to eat me while I slept. Laughing

Because of spoiler[A-ko's white eyes?] Because the way he drew the cats made me want to hug them really tightly.

I read Junji Ito's Uzumaki on a warm, sunny day. It took me a while to get to sleep that night, and even longer before I could look at snails again. I do want to read more of his manga, though, when I work up the courage Laughing

Ha! I'm already familiar with 6 of these mangaka, and a big fan of 4 of them. The Drifting Classroom is among my favorites, although mentioning the spoiler[time travel to the future] is really a big spoiler. The kids think they've been warped to an alternate universe for a large portion of the series before that reveal.

I'm unfamiliar with Nakayama since it seems Fuan no Tame is only available via scanlation, so I figured Mohiro Kitoh or Naoki Urasawa would get the nod there.

I love Junji Ito's stuff. So good, and such a variety.

I really need to keep reading Fuan no Tane; I did an assignment on it in University LOL.

I've been wanting to read Portus for like over 5 years, I swear. When will I get to reading it. Will I ever read it? Is it even worth it? Man....

I hope more Umezu stuff gets translated. I only have a couple of his works.

Surprised Hideshi Hino isn't included. He does some messed up stuff. There's also that other person whose stuff reminds me of Usamaru's work; really bizarre and unpredictable. Uh... For the life of me I can't remember their name nor their work.. Keigo...shino...K....Kei...something..........?

S far I've enjoyed a few of Junji's works (they were awesome!) and currently enjoying Umezo's long work Fourteen, which is also impressive!

Will defenitely check out the other guys.

If anyone is interested, here's a webcomic that follows the same themes as these authors called Necrosis: http://necrosiscomic.tumblr.com/post/141032023010. Very Happy It includes body horror, witchcraft, and a lonely necromancer.

I was also surprised not to see Hideshi Hino on this list as pretty much everything that I know of that's been published in the USA by him is horror, some of it pretty strong stuff.
