Anyone here have any good horror manga recommendations?

I got into junji ito a few years back and his stuff has been my favorite stuff to read when I'm bored or when I would go camping or at a night shift. I read a few of his works a few being: uzumaki, tomie, gyo and his fragments of horror collections, plus I have a few more story collections of his.

I've meaning to get into horror manga as well. So far I've Junji's Smashed and I enjoyed it. It's a story collection, has some pretty fun pieces.
Also read smashed it was great
I'd recommend uzumaki next, that one really got me hooked on his work and is a sorta story collection but is also like one full continuous story. It's also getting a 4 episode mini series adaptation soon

Okay, I'll be sure to check it out.
By the way, do you actually buy the physical books or you just read them online?

I buy the physical books, I love his work enough to want to own a collection of it. But I've read some stuff online as well.

Tomie is a good place to look after Uzumaki btw, its kinda the same in that it is one story but told in episodes

Uzumaki. And it has nothing to do with Naruto.
Yeah, Imperfection also recommended it. I've definitely heard of it but I couldn't tell you the name if you asked me. Anyway, I hope I'll like it.

See, I prefer having physical copies of books in general. It's so much better than reading on my phone, but manga is expensive. Like hella expensive, you just go so quickly through everything. For example I'll buy Naruto v.1 and will be done with it by the time the day ends. Then I have to go and look for the next volume and spend more money the next day. The alternative - reading them for free on my phone whenever I want is just better for me.

Also, thanks for the second recommendation.

Not manga but an anime I've seen was Rampo Kitan game of laplace which is based on books by Edogawa Ranpo aka Japanese Edgar Allen Poe(Edoga - Edgar Waran - Allen Po - Poe) and there's another but I'm blanking on the name right now pretty sure it started with R as well.

Still can't remember the other one I'm thinking of(this is driving me crazy. I remember there was a detective who went to an island/resort/travel destination type location and murders were happening and there was one room with mannequin like dolls of all sizes **** what was it?) but Danganronpa is also pretty good though idk if you;d call it horror. Death Parade was another in that line, not exactly horror but adjacent.

While looking I found this guy, Suehiro Maruo. May want to check him out but his stuff isn't on kiss so looking for somewhere it is.

Ok so apparently I'm going crazy, the mannequin scene is in Rampo Kitan but I swear there was another show similar to it. Danganronpa isn't really like it but I remember the names being similar so maybe that was the other show I was thinking of.

I recommend Tokyo Ghoul to anyone whose a fan of the series, plus, the manga has plenty of gore in it. :)
