Both of these manga revolve around mass suicides and people trying to figure out why it's happening, with an equally as dark tone and feel.

These are both dark stories that involve using the internet to spread misery and find the darkness in people's hearts. Both series involve people being pushed to kill themselves in gruesome ways to satisfy a cruel villain.

Jisatsu Circle is definitely different than Book Club in plot, but both have a very similar, creepy feel and are horror through and through. I liked Jisatsu MUCH better, but fans of one should appreciate the other.

ZetsubouKaiji ZetsubouKaiji says...

These are both horror stories about Clubs that turn out to be much more sinister than they appear on the surface. Both stories deal with the themes of despair and suicide as well as the horrific scars they can leave on those left behind. 

Jisatsu Circle is a much darker story with a much better grasp of the psychology of its characters and despite the supernatural being involved there is a much more realisitic element to its characters and their development. 

Reading Circle is a much more conventional horror story that doesn't get nearly as depressing as Jisatsu Circle. It also has more gore than Jisatsu Circle even if that's not the focus of the story. 

If you're looking for a horror story that isn't overly reliant on gore to create a creepy atmosphere then try either of these titles.

JisatsuCircle and Line are short manga about group suicides, and a main character that's trying to understand and stop the next impending suicide. Jisatsu Circle is darker.

Line and Suicide Club center around unexplained, sudden suicides and the mystery around it. Suicide Club is FAR more explicit, but they will appeal to the same audiences.

Both manga are abundant in horror, mystery, and pathological females who may not be human.  And both have an open-ended final chapter, leaving us to wonder what's going to happen next.

Jisatsu Circle and Vitamin are about a schoolgirl that gets hard-core bullied at school, and her emotional deterioration. Jisatsu Circle is darker/gorier.

ZetsubouKaiji ZetsubouKaiji says...

These stories are very different but they have a similar atmosphere and emphasis on body horror. Jisatsu often emphasises the mouth and the power of the words people speak. Words that wound, words that sooth. In Look Me In the Eyes the emphasis is on the eyes. So much human interaction is done through the eyes, but what happens when humans lose their eyes?

While the stories are quite difference this emphasis on the power of different body parts give them a similar theme that makes them a good pairing.
