PostSubject: Scary parts of the manga?   13th May 2013, 6:28 pm

Hey there!
I'm trying to look for something pretty and scary to make an icon or avatar with, lmfao. Gotta keep up my 'horror' theme.
Hopefully this can also trigger some discussion, but I've never actually read the manga before. The farthest I've gotten is skimming through the last three volumes and the issue that inspired S movie in Japanese.
I know there's a lot more "mature" themes scattered in the manga, and definitely some gruesome, borderline-horrific elements (at one point zombie-like creatures, Kakyuu's murder, Usagi's face melting, etc.)...
Are there any scenes that stick out in particular? What are some scenes that caught you by surprise, please share pics if you have any on hand.

My personal favorite, although I've never really read it in context (I have a general idea of what triggered it and the aftermath of it), is Kakyuu's death, pictured below. It's probably one of my favorite scenes of the series, if only because when I saw it, it caught me off-guard. At the time, I didn't think explicit death and violence quite like that was in Sailor Moon, so it was one part shocking and two parts intriguing.



I'm actually kind of surprised it's taking me so long to get into the manga because it seems to have a lot of elements I would really, really, really dig.

There's also Serenity's suicide, or her attempt to murder Endy and herself. all the senshi experienced the rotting coprses, flesh melting scenes, Chibiusa with a gun to Usagi's forehead, Usagi and Mamoru with holes piercing their chest from the Dead Moon circus Arc, Rei about to be eaten by a tiger, evil enemy faces, Wise-man's skeleton on Nemesis...

Is there anything specific you are looking for?

Hnnnng, those all sound so wonderful. I've always found the rotting corpse deal really interesting! And I totally forgot about Wise-man, jeez, he'd be perfect.

Hello horrormoans!,

I dunno why I didn't think this earlier but since you have this thread only about the manga. I'm going to move this thread to manga part of the forum. Which is right here!

Thanks!

I've always thought the scariest part is Usagi's dream of Mamoru after he gets kidnapped Smile

"'Starlight Honeymoon Therapy Kiss' oh that can't too mad, in the anime it's just a bunch of feathers and the phages revert back into peop-OH SWEET JESUS USAGI JUST MELTED NEHELENIA'S FACE OFF."

So yeah... that.

a lot of the scenes mentioned were stuff i wasn't expecting of this manga. especially the corpse scene, and the death of princess kakyuu. i didn't realize earlier on how detailed naoko's drawings of these elements are.

Naoko sure has a creepy little mind, eheh. What I found unsettling in one of her short "How Sailor Moon came to be" mangas was when she said she wanted Ami to be a cyborg that would die getting her limbs torn apart.

I think it's a good thing that Osabu was here to stop her, eheh. Not that I would have minded if she added in disney deaths like the anime got. (They kind of got them. I doubt the Inners survived that big SPLAT attack thing Metalia did after they tried to wake up Usagi from inside Metalia.)

More on the topic, the creepiest part of the manga for me has to be Zirconia's illusion. The entire Stars arc is pretty scary too. Nothing will ever beat Mistress Nine tearing her way out of Hotaru's body, though.

Ah, also, this part where Dimande had fun killing the civilians who survived the Black Crystal's landing. And when Koan killed the little girl who witnessed their arrival. Or when Rei and Kotono found the corpse of the sister the droids immediately turned into.
Damn the Future arc was brutal, man.

The one where everyone's flesh was melting near the end of the supers arc was the scariest for me. Though I've read it enough that I don't even flinch but when I first read it as a child it made my heart drop into my stomach.

This. It creeps me out to no end. I couldn't imagine having a dream like that. I'm only on Volume 3, but this scene has so far been the most terrifying.

Koan burning a child alive. I'm glad they changed it to an older man for Crystal so as to be awful but slightly less horrifying.

I've thought of another disturbing image. The Death Busters as they are in the manga. Firstly the Daimons, how they just emerged from the back of their victims and took over them is unsettling. Not to mention human looking members like Eudial, Tellu, Tomoe, and Kaolinite turning into Daimons. Not to mention the graphic image, seeing Mistress 9 tear out of Hotaru's body after Hotaru saved Chibiusa and the Senshi's souls.
