Scary Book and Death's Reflection are two horror compilation manga with characters that find themselves in the worst situations, against their will. Trust me that if you liked one, you'd like the other.
On a day like any other day, Shou, his classmates and the entire elementary school were mysteriously transported to a barren wasteland filled with terror. There's no food or water, nothing in sight but an endless desert in all directions, and both the students and teachers are so terrified that they are rioting, murdering, and falling victim to their fears. With no idea of how they got there or how they'll survive, these students must work together and set forth into the unknown to discover the truth of their circumstances.
Okinawa was the first affected; swarms of fish with spindly legs rose from the sea, carrying with them an overpowering stench of death. Kaori and Tadashi find themselves in the midst of the incident and quickly travel to Tokyo to ask for Tadashi's scientist uncle's help - but even Tokyo isn't safe for long, and sea creatures aren't the only beings affected by the horror...
In the seemingly-normal small Japanese town of Kurozu-cho, odd events are beginning to take place. Residents are becoming obsessed with spiral - whirlwinds, snail shells, pottery, or anything with a spiral design. But when strange events start happening in the town, with spirals appearing in disturbing places, can anyone escape their horrible draw?
Like very bizarre horror with plenty of violence and grotesque things? Uzumaki and Scary Book are for you. SB is quite episodic (though Uzumaki has that sort of feel too, I suppose), but regardless both would definitely appeal to the same audience.
