Manga Review: Doubt, Vol. 1 [Paperback]

I've finished "Doubt Vol. 1" by Yoshiki Tonogai.

Product Description

Rabbit Doubt - a mobile phone game - has taken Japan by storm. In it, players are rabbits who must uncover the wolf in rabbit's clothing before falling prey to its mistrust - sowing wiles as well as its teeth. When a group of teen players decides to meet offline for fun, the last thing they expect is to lose consciousness and wake up trapped in an abandoned building, mysterious bar codes tattooed on their bodies, and a corpse strung up in front of them. To stay alive and find a way out, they have but one option - to sniff out the lying wolf in their midst. Will these virtual acquaintances be able to pull it together in the real world and figure out what's going on in time to avoid ending up as the wolf's dinner?

About the Author

Before making his manga debut with Doubt, Yoshiki Tonogai was an assistant to Soul Eater creator Atsushi Ohkubo. Tonogai followed up his hit horror series Doubt with another survival horror title called Judge, and has also contributed to the Higurashi When They Cry series.

My Review:

Rabbit Doubt is the newest game rage which is a mobile phone game.  Players are rabbits and they must flush out the wolf disguised as a rabbit before falling prey to them (killed).  A group of teens decide to meet offline for fun but didn't expect to lose consciousness and wake up trapped in a warehouse with mysterious bar codes on their bodies and a hanging corpse in front of them.

I really enjoyed this manga because of the well drawn illustrations, the intriguing storyline and the graphic details of the murders (not to graphic) that implies what happened to the victim.


Thanks Hachette Book Group Canada/Yen Press for sending me this manga to review, greatly appreciated!
