Uzumaki and Cat Eyed Boy are twisted, grotesque tales of horror that will keep you hooked from start to end. Both also have an episodic slant with a bit of consistency with the characters. HIGHLY recommended.

The Drifting Classroom

The Drifting Classroom

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.

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.

Drifting Classroom is Kazuo Umezu's best, while Cat Eyed Boy is his second best. Both are gruesome, violent tales of terror that you'll love - just note that TDC is way more explicit.

Gyo

Gyo

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...

Both manga feature a cat (or cat-like being) travelling from place to place, experiencing the darkness of humanity. Cat Eyed Boy is more focused on the supernatural and various creature/elements of folklore, while Black Cat is more about drama, with only the faintest hint of the supernatural. The art styles are extremely similar, as well.
