Title: Yumekui Merry (Dream Eater Merry) Rating: Idk. Genre: Action, comedy, fantasy, supernatural, shonen Basic premise/ Basic plot: Yumeji Hujuwara-kun is your ordinary adolescent boy , but 10 years ago he noticed he had a power to see multicolored auras surrounding the persons body which he looks upon through his fingers. Every so often Yumeji has dreams about a war with cats , but one day a girl fell on top of him ....( No, this manga is not about cats.)
I really don't like this description because it's weird. It doesn't fully explain everything neutral
The girl that fell on him is Merry Nightmare. Eventually, he learns about nightmares; inhabitants of the dream world. All nightmares have a certain reason for going into the human world, but there is one that is generally evident in the story. In order to go into the human world, the nightmare has to take possession of the body that is having a nightmare, and Yumji happens to be able to see when that occurrence takes place in a person. And so, Yumeji and Merry team up to stop the nightmares.(There is another reason but no spoilers. You have to read it your self.3nodding)

Author: Junji Ito
Genre: Horror, mystery
Basic Premise/Basic Plot: The story concerns the inhabitants of the small Japanese town of Kurôzu-cho that seems to be cursed by supernatural events surrounding spirals. Many people become obsessed or paranoid about spiral shapes, which starts resulting in several gruesome deaths. Eventually people start transforming into something other than human, such as snails and twisted forms. In the end the town is cut off from the rest of the world, which leads to apocalyptic events and a revelation about the secret hidden under the lake in the middle of the town.
Your Rating for the Artwork: A
Your Opinion/Review of the Art: The art is unlike anything I've seen in manga. I don't quite know how to describe it, but it's definitely not your typical style. You'll have to see it for yourself.
Your Rating for the Story: A
Your Opinion/Review of the Story: The manga is relatively short. It reminds me more of a television show in the sense that the current chapter isn't always directly related to it's predecessor, at least not at first, whereas in other works, the manga is one continuous story broken up into many chapters. In short, some chapters tell the stories of specific events.
The story can be hard to follow, and in some instances, you really need to pay close attention. Towards the end, the story tends to get rather confusing, and the very ending may throw you for a loop. I suggest re-reading it until it makes sense, because it eventually will.
This manga is different from what I usually read (Fullmetal Alhemist, Elfen Lied, Magudala De Nemure), but it is definitely worth checking out.
Suggested for people who like: Horror mixed with the element of the supernatural all tied together with a confusing story that actually makes perfect sense when read carefully.
Gyo and Tomie (both by the same Mangaka) are amazing too.
I cant really give a plot summery of either without ruining them!!

Title: Oyasumi Punpun
Genre: Dark Humor
Basic Premise: An alienated child with parental difficulty struggles with relationships as he develops into adulthood.
Your Rating for the Artwork: A
Amazing detail which gives the reader a keen sense of the setting, just absolutely beautiful.
Your Rating for the Story: B+
Your Opinion/Review of the Story: There are many solid characters that develop as the plot does, but the story is long and there are two plots to follow which slowly develop into one. It also has to be kept in mind the main plot is the development of the main character, and there is merely sub-events as the characters ages.
