A classic take on the murderer in a locked room story. This is fairly well executed and very well drawn. There is some rushing at the end to wrap up the story and some of the inevitable "twists" are a little farfetched, but overall this is a very well told story. The characters could have used some more development, but if you only care about the whodunit aspect of the story and not about any human qualities of the lambs being led to slaughter, then this is a great one to read. I highly recommend it.
Premise: 5 people are locked up with a dead body, and someone in there is the killer. Can be nice, although it is a little unoriginal.
Pacing: the story felt a bit too rushed, making the plot "twists" (although often predictable) feel like they were just stupid. It took away a part of the suspense, which should be the most important in a horror story. Still, there was enough suspense left to keep things interesting
Otherwise the story was ok. Because it was so short and still interesting enough, i read it all in one go.
good, served it's purpose
none of the characters were really interesting, and there was no real depth to any of them. There was also no development because of the rush in the story
although a little unoriginal and rushed, it's still a good read (also, it won't take too much of your time because it's so short)
It was a pretty good story for the most part - reminded me a lot of Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, which is one of my favorite games.
But the ending...to call it a plot hole doesn't begin to cover it. The wolf's identity is disappointing, and illogical, and the more you think about it, the less sense it makes. And it goes downhil from there, with the rest of the ending making less and less sense. Note: to discuss the issues, I have to spoil the villain's identity. Read further at your own risk.
So, the hypnotist did it. And...somehow hypnotized everyone into thinking she was dead. Even though she specifically says later on that A: that's not how her hypnosis works and B: That several of the characters, including the main character, were immune to her hypnosis. So...logic hole 1. And somehow she's out of her wheelchair, too. Because reasons.
And...why did she need the main character to call her? And say some random code word to "create the perfect wolf"? If her hypnosis can do that...she didn't need someone else to say the code word.
As for said "perfect wolf"...so, how did she go from comatose, criticallty injured, and strapped to a bed, to holding a knife over the protagonist in the course of a minute?
I still have no idea what hypno-girl's motives were either. Just...kill as many people as possible, in a horribly convoluted way?
Basically, the ending is nonsense. It's pretty good until then, though.
I very much enjoyed this manga, considering I like the more messed-up ones anyway.
The story had interesting twists and plots, however the characters occasionally bothered me - espescially the portrayal of all the girl characters as weak or scared all the time.
Tha artwork I loved, but oh my gosh it put my off white rabbits. The spookiness and psychological aspect of these mangas really made them page-turners; with the added gore it was epic to read.
I hadn't read this Manga before but I had heard some pretty good stuff about it. Some people told me how suspenseful and thrilling this whole story was, so I was freaking pumped when I bought it almost a year ago.
I pretty much sucked up the four volumes in no time, and damn, was I
Yeah, you heard me right. Maybe people got my expectations up, but to me, Doubt will forever remain a barely mediocre little story. I expected genius writing, endless gore and blow-your-mind revelations. But I didn't really find either of that to a greater extent. Yet I don't want to sound like I was hating, so...

ABOUT THE ART:
Doubt is labeled 16+ in Germany. I don't see why.
Where is the gore that you promised me? Where is the stomach-turning story?
I've seen a lot better, but I've also seen worse.
Final rating: Meh.
