GMA-7'S MIDNIGHT HORROR STORIES PRESENTS: MANNA SAN


GMA-7's Midnight Horror Stories Presents has a new offering, it's called "Manna San", it's a 20 minute program with 12 episodes and it replaces the recently concluded "Torihada".

Manna San is a new type of horror film, in which those who read the "cursed red manga (comic book)" in a manga cafe suffer various calamities.

[SYNOPSIS]

Shizuka, Ryoko, and Sayaka are high school girls who always hang together as best friends. However, since the day Sayaka gets involved with prostitute sisters Aoi and Akane, mysterious incidents start to occur.

One day, Shizuka and Ryoko hear of Sayaka's sudden death. Together with Sayaka's older sister Kamui , a website novelist, the girls try to find out what happened to their friend.

Meanwhile, Aoi, who spends much of her time at a manga cafe, finds the "red manga" there. As she flips through the comic, she sees herself in it becoming rich. After Aoi leaves the cafe, she bumps into a man, causing her school uniform to be stained. The man hands her a large amount of cash to compensate for the stain, and then suddenly runs off. Jubilant that her life had taken the same turn as depicted in the manga, Aoi doesn't notice Manna-san creeping from behind.

So far "Manna San" is creepy and mind buggling just like all Japanese horrors. But for a while I'm gonna miss the "Torihada" and maybe it's gonna take a few episodes before I get hooked with "Manna San". But still, this is a whole new midnight affair.

    1. I tried to find it out but even the official website of producer cursed urban legends tells very little about this show which makes it even more mysterious to me
