      (This is a review of the first half of the series, 1-5)Dragon Head is definitely not your typical manga, but in the best of ways. The unusual art style stands out, realistic to the point of drawing characters unflatteringly when the situation is rough. A surreal, trope-smashing and deeply disconcerting series that runs entirely on its own whims.Apocalypse, and HOW. Dragon Head is pretty bizarre when summarized - two survivors of a massive earthquake get buried in a train tunnel with a violent ma [...]

      Man, what a trip! The tension in this story was so high, I almost had a stroke at times. At the same time, the characters behaved so ludicrously, I felt like my IQ was lowering 20 points while reading.So what is this all about? It’s survival thriller at its best. The art alone is made so good, you are literally drawn into the setting. The characters seem like ants before the hundreds of panels full of post apocalyptic sceneries. Even their mentality is shown through close ups to the devastated [...]

      Minetaro Mochizuki, Dragon Head vol. 1 (Tokyopop, 1995)I've read various horror manga over the past few years, and with the exception of Hideshi Hino (who does gore/extreme horror, not atmospheric Koji Suzuki-style horror), I've never been impressed with them as horror. Yeah, some of them are very well put together from the writing standpoint—character, plot, what have you—but I haven't found one that really gives you that creeping feeling at the base of your spine. Dragon Head is not that s [...]

      Estado: todos los tomos leídos.Tuve ciertos problemas con este manga, pese a esto seguí leyendo porque estaba interesante. Sin embargo una vez que salen del túnel, la tensión y el drama eran como olas que no lograban mantenerse, y por tanto se ha ganado 3 penosas estrellas porque penosas? porque tenía todo para salir a flote y se perdió en la corriente.Los primeros tomos transcurren en el túnel y debo decir que el mangaka me sorprendió creando una situación claustrofóbicay un trazo atr [...]

      Book one of Dragon Head is claustrophobic to say the least. Our main character Teru Aoki has survived the initial impact of a tunnel cave-in while on a class trip, but staying alive is going to be difficult. The tunnel is pitch-dark and blocked on both sides by debris. The tunnel is also uncomfortably hot, which is speeding up the decay of food and the bodies of his classmates. Teru has only found two other survivors: one who is really hurt (Seto Ako), and one who has completely lost it after th [...]

      Dragon Head ha sido una sorpresa muy interesante, cuando empece su lectura, lo hice sin expectativas muy altas, pero debo decir que a pesar de algunos errores y personajes con actuaciones y planteamientos dignos de un adicto al LCD. Dragon Head es un manga resaltable en su genero, y uno que valió la pena leer.El apartado artístico es maravilloso Cuando hablamos de cualquier cosa que no sea una persona, ya que los seres humanos llegan a tener en algunas ocasiones expresiones deformes y ridícul [...]

      Overall Rating: ASummary: Created by Minetaro Mochizuki, the series is a psychological horror seinen manga. Dragon Head follows Teru Aoki, a school kid, who wakes up in a wrecked train. He had been traveling home with his classmates after a school trip, and just before entering a tunnel he saw something strange on the horizon. Some catastrophe has occurred, and now most of his classmates and teachers are dead, the tunnel is oddly hot, and is caved in on both sides.The only other survivors are No [...]

      Como la mayor parte de lo que leo, comienzo el libro sin saber mucho acerca de él, solo algunos comentarios de otros lectores y detalles acerca del autor, raramente leo la sinopsis, prefiero no esperar nada del libro y sorprenderme. Y esta novela gráfica vaya que me sorprendió, pero lamentablemente de mala manera. Había escuchado que era una buena historia de horror y los dibujos parecían ser buenos, sin embargo fue todo lo contrario. Entiendo que la trama se desarrolla en un lugar oscuro, [...]

      This manga was okay. It's only the first volume so I'm expecting it to get a lot better.Teru Aoki is traveling by train home to Kyoto from a class field trip. He awakes in pitch black surrounded by dead bodies. He later finds two other survivors a boy, Takahashi Nobuo and a girl Seto Ako. They are trapped underground in a tunnel that has collapsed on both sides. Teru got a radio to sort of work and what he made out was that there was some kind of emergency on the surface. He is assuming there wa [...]

      Manga compuesto por 8 volúmenes (los cuales ya leí), al principio presenta un accidente en un viaje escolar que a medida que se va leyendo, parece ser más que eso. Me pareció maravilloso, el desarrollo de la historia, el hecho de que sólo se sabía lo que el personaje principal y que juntos se pudo ir descubriendo las verdaderas causas de este hecho; el desarrollo de los personajes, su evolución y descenso a los abismos de la locura. Me pareció muy interesante la forma en que Mochizuki ju [...]

      Real rating: 4.1/10Manga/GN rating 5.6/10***********************************Spoilers******************************Dragon head's pacing is slow (many scenes are stretched unnecessarily over multiple chapters), the chapter's are quite short and there are many panels set aside solely for atmospheric purposes which is nice but by page 180 it feels like the author has confused dark and empty panels for actual suspense and mystery and given that through out the entire series there is over three to fou [...]

      This is my review for the whole manga series.I sensed some Junji Ito vibe at the first volume and it's one of the things that kept me going.The story revolves around a post-apocalyptic setting.Nobuo is freaking creepy.One time I read this before going to bed and I had nightmares. No kidding. The story is dark and enjoyable for me.

    13. Jacobi on said:

      I'm starting to get the feeling that I'm going to be lucky if I encounter really good characterization in manga, because this book is yet another that has flat characters. Maybe that has got to do with the translation process? I don't know, and I don't care. Manga more than makes up for that with some really cool premises. Dragon Head is about 3 kids that get trapped in a train tunnel after a major earthquake (that's what I think it is so far), and what they do to survive. However, you're pretty [...]

      Buena idea: agarrar un manga al azar sin tener la más mínima idea de qué se trata, hacerse una película sobre que seguro es así o asá y ver cómo no tiene nada que ver con lo que uno imaginó caprichosamente. Así fue como llegué a este comic, ignorando todo sobre él (salvo que es un Seinen) y así quiero seguir reencontrándomelo, sin leer absolutamente nada que me diga de qué va ni qué va pasando en tomos siguientes. Por eso mismo es que no hablo nada del argumento en esta reseña. B [...]

      Leí este manga luego de varias recomendaciones, no me esperaba mucho, pues no es que se viera como la gran cosa. Le puse dos estrellas porque siento que la historia se desarrolla de forma lenta y a veces no se entienden algunos dibujos, por lo que el lector puede perderse en algun momento.La trama de la historia es excelente, me parece que es una historia a la que se le puede sacar mucho jugo, esperemos que en los próximos volúmenes el autor pueda desarrollar esta historia como se merece ser [...]

    16. Bryan on said:

      This is the first manga that I've read and I've enjoyed it. The narration is full of suspense even though the words used are simple. The graphics, though dark, is good. It would really make you feel terrified. This is just the first book and even though the main story and conflict is just rising, you would still feel the uneasiness, fright and thrill of the story. The development of the story is slow and it would really make you want to read more.

    17. Chris on said:

      This doesn't exactly buck any manga or anime conventions, but what it is happens to be a very tense, fairly horrifying scenario that is executed in a convincing manner. The characters may overreact a bit, but they're kids, and they're stuck in a tunnel full of corpses - of COURSE they're going to overreact a little. I really like the artwork, and while the writing isn't stunning, it's quite good. I like this series quite a lot so far.

      Trois adolescents bloqués dans un tunnel après un accident de train dont ils sont les seuls survivants. Le noir, la peur, la fatigue, ils sont rapidement à bout. Mais que s'est-il passé à l'extérieur ? Un scénario en huis-clos, une intrigue qui laisse présager de bonnes choses. Reste à savoir si les neuf tomes suivants seront à la hauteur de ce premier tome.

    19. Noemi on said:

      I got this volume for my 16th? birthday for a friend who wanted to expand my manga views. All I remember is that it made me feel claustrophobic. Either way, my manga cup of tea was the fluffy stuff and this proved it.

    20. Jennn on said:

      I like this series. I like the mystery behind it, the hopelessness, the fight for survival, and the characters being pushed to the brink of insanity. The psychology behind it is interesting and I think it's a good accurate portrayal of people facing a major disaster and possible extinction.

    21. TheCentralRuhr on said:

      Is there a way for me to rate the whole shebang as one? In any case, the series offers periodic insights into the human condition but more often then not, just gets bogged down in thankless storytelling constructions and lost in its own pseudo-ethical ideologies.

    22. Brad on said:

      let this stand for the whole series, because i don't remember which volumes were better or worse than others

      Um manga fantástico, do princípio ao fim, num cenário apocalíptico, mas centrado nas suas ricas personagens.
