Summary: There’s a game going around Japan called ‘Rabbit Doubt’. The premise of the game is that all of the players are rabbits in a colony, and one amongst them is randomly chosen to be a wolf that infiltrated the group of rabbits. Every round, the wolf kills off a rabbit, and every round, the group tries to figure out which of the rabbits is actually a wolf in disguise. Sometimes the kids who play this game decide to meet up in person, and Yuu, Mitsuki, Rei, Hajime, Eiji, and Haruka have done just that. Unfortunately, one of them has decided to take on the mantle of the wolf and has already killed once. Who is the wolf, and can they be stopped before everyone meets a very unpleasant end?

Review: With only four volumes, this manga manages to pack a very good, fairly violent mystery into a short amount of pages. The basic premise is simple- a group of people who want to play meet and hang out. Later, they awaken in an abandoned and locked hospital. They have to find their way out…. Before falling victim to the wolf.

The mystery isn’t so simple. With every person that dies the mystery heightens. Who is behind the Rabbit Doubt game? Who could be the killer? What is the purpose behind it all? And does the killer have an ulterior motive?

Overall, this is a great manga to read with Halloween coming up! 16+ due to gore and the aftermath of murder. This is very bloody.

Recommended: Yes! But 16+ please, for gore.
