Seeds of Anxiety

Written and authored by Nakayama Massaaki in 2004, Fuan No Tane or Seeds of Anxiety (what a wonderful name!) tells a collection of short psychological, dark, supernatural stories in Japan. Each story seem to be told by eyewitness, given you a chilling “based-on-true-story” feeling. The manga consists of 3 volumns

Fuan No Tane must be quite a success because it was adapted into motion picture in 2013, called “Pet Peeve”. Masaaki is the screenwriter.

I first knew Masaaki from Police Station Rashomon manga. A touching drama story of this unique group of police of Rashomon police station. Masaaki is the artist while Yajima Masao is the author.
