One Shot Manga of Note #1

Just a little weekly post I wanted to try out to spotlight some one shot mangas that can be fun or interesting reads. One shots typically contain an entire story in just one volume so no long series to worry about with tons of back story and things.

So with that out of the way here is the first!

The Enigma of Amigara Fault

Another earthquake has rocked Japan but this one left something mysterious in it's aftermath. The quake exposed a new fault line in the mountains with strange holes in it's side, the holes have human like sizes and shapes.

This becomes a sensational news story and many people are drawn to the images on their TVs and begin a pilgrimage to the mountains to see this for themselves. When they arrive some find their own holes and are even further driven to learn about them through sheer curiosity or something unnatural no one can say but it seems to torment them until some snap and enter their hole. The hole is a perfect fit and they easily slide into the unknown. I won't spoiler where the hole ends up but it is a chilling read with a new and original story and definitely worth a read. You can find it online with a quick Google search happy reading!
