      MBC - 6000 - discussion thread - Halloween Special

      MANGA BOOK CLUB PRESENTS...

      Halloween Special


      Simply click on either links to begin and away you go!


      GENRAS
      Mystery, Horror, Supernatural, Seinen


      SUMMARY
      "Here be monsters," this expression has always been used to speak of the ocean—a dark, impenetrable world that can only conceal unimaginable horrors that the human can't see... often not until it is too late. A series of unexplained accidents happen at a submarine platform 6,000 meters beneath the surface and, in response, a group of scientists and cadres are sent to investigate. Before long, the members of the party start to get haunted by horrifying, elusive visions... and the rash of brutal deaths once again resumes. Is it just a collection of freak accidents and hallucinations caused by sheer paranoia, the claustrophobic environment and dysbarism... or is there really something more lurking in this abyssal station?

      The art is so awesome in this. I also didn't expect the first chapter to be so long but I really enjoyed it. I really like the dark tone in the pages, adds to the atmosphere a lot.

      I really hate that guy with the glasses...

      But at least things are starting to pick up, I have a lot of hype for this

      Chapter 1
        Spoiler:  

      Being bought out always sucks. The buying company rarely cares about the personnel at all. Add that to our MC's partner being severely injured on day one it's easy to relate to his emotions while descending the sea elevator.

      That was a good introduction.


      Chapter 2
        Spoiler:  

      Oh my days, it does not at all surprise me these guys are trapped 6000 metres under the sea in a facility falling to pieces. That's exactly how private industry works.

      Interesting revelation about the coworker accident. He did it to himself. That's very Higurashi.


      Chapter 3
        Spoiler:  

      Lots of hallucinations. Well, that's what the chapter title calls them. We're lead to believe that the ghost which the female mechanic saw did actually interact with the real world though right?

      It's not just that the radio thingy user interface says it made a connection, we're told a bit earlier that radio transmission *was* received at the top of the sea.

      I guess it is the same character perceiving both pieces of evidence but the fact that there are two means we as readers should probably believe it right?


      Chapter 4
        Spoiler:  

      So glasses girl is going crazy. I wonder if her father has any relevance to the story. Was he one of the victims from the incident 3 years ago? It seems implied to me but I didn't see anything to corroborate that.


      Chapter 5
        Spoiler:  

      Glasses girl tries to kill herself in the exact same way as the first guy, but clearly isn't very lucid. I didn't really notice any clues as to what lead to this though which is disappointing.

      More hallucinations, but whatever is in the sealed room might be different since it's 2 people perceiving it. That's definitely new and a good way to end the chapter.


      Good so far, I'm still hooked.

      There seems to be a connection between glasses and madness.

      I'm loving this so far. Gonna read more tonight.

      Chapter 6
        Spoiler:  

      Oh ok, so the thing in the storeroom was just a surviver from the original incident. That makes sense. I think glasses girl who tried to kill herself and "seems different" now is a clue.


      Chapter 7
        Spoiler:  

      The surviver tells us a group of people trapped in the conference room "gave birth to a god". Interestingly, glasses girl is looking at her reflection in the glass and a different face is looking back at her. Is that one of the women from the conference room 3 years ago?

      I don't really understand the stuff about religion though.


      Chapter 8
        Spoiler:  

      So mechanic girl, MC and computer guy are talking to the surviver in the hospital bed. I don't really understand MC's explosion of denial and cognitive dissonance. Could it just be to distract us from what was said just before? It seems to highlight what mechanic girl was saying about shouldn't there be at least one other survivor and then the discussion deteriorates.

      Elitist german guy is acting stressed. Everyone separately hears a noises while in their rooms and we end with a dark figure in elitist german guy's room?


      Chapter 9
        Spoiler:  

      It seems the dark figure represents his father. Didn't glasses girl also see her father before she went crazy? That seems to be a pattern.


      Chapter 10
        Spoiler:  

      Computer guy is poking through the survivor's laptop but won't share what he's found. What a tool.

      Chinese boss man with the glasses kills the surviver. But in the last chapter he made a call to the surface to presumably tell them about the surviver so this is probably not of his own volition.

      Elitist german guy has gone full crazy and is attacking MC and his friend.


      Chapter 11
        Spoiler:  

      I think the concept that the "crazy people" are actually being possessed by those that were in the conference room 3 years ago is being rubbed in our faces here. 7 names appear to be listed? And I see 7 people in chapter 7. Glasses girl, german guy, MC's friend frim chapter 1? I am having trouble keeping track of how many possessions there have been so far but I guess we should expect more.

      Wait, glasses girl returned to normal while climbing the ladder and then died somehow. So I guess she's not possessed anymore.

      I don't really understand why water started leaking in either.

      I guess I need to keep reading

        Spoiler:  
      Chapter 22 wasn't what I expected. For some reason I've expected it to be a bit more gorier.

      So far this reminds me of the movie "Ghost Ship" with all the events that have happened in the firs few chapters that I've read.
