    The Ring

    Now that's some good horror manga!!!

    I've only read two of the books, but they're friggin' great!! They give you more insight behind the movie "The Ring" (which was based off a novel I think, or was it a graphic novel--I dunno).

    I've read both versions of Birthday. One was actually "The Ring: Zero" which was sub-titled as "Birthday" and the other's actual title was "Birthday". I like them both. They rock my socks! I think there are a few more of these "Ringu" manga out, but I haven't seen any since the comic book store by my job closed. T_T

    What's your opinion on these manga? Do you like the movie better or the graphic novels? I haven't seen the Japanese version of "Ringu" yet, so I can't really say anything about the flick. I CAN compare with the American version, but that would be a bad example, LOL.


    Ringu o hanashite!! Hajime!

    I've read part of The Ring (when I was inside the bookstore) and it was similar to the Japanese movie. I haven't really seen the Hollywood version, so I can't compare.

    I do not remember which version I read, but I remember that it was amazing! I read it by candlelight during a thunderstorm . . . fantastic! I thought it lost a certain something in the English version of the movie . . .

    Compered to the manga, the US version of the movie is a walk in the park, LOL. The manga adds more "horror elements" in the story, there's way more suspense. It was like they wanted to get straight to the point in the US movie.

    Re: The Ring

    I read the Ring, Ring 2, and Rasen... I read the manga for the Ring before I'd seen either the Japanese version of the movie or the American version, and I have to say I liked it better than either movie ^^; Even my friend who dislikes manga liked the manga for the Ring. Ring 2 was okay, but the first like half of the book just repeated the Ring, and the second half wasn't as suspenseful or as exciting as the first book in my opinion. Spiral, though I found it odd, was fairly creepy though o_o

    I've been meaning to read Spiral. I see it in the bookstore every time I go, I just don't ever take the time to buy/read it. I've been sucked in to Death Note lately.

    How is it?
