Rabbit Doubt is a popular mobile game, where users are rabbits and they try to drive out the wolf amongst their ranks. A group of players decide to meet in person, but instead of a happy get together, they are captured, and locked in an abandoned warehouse.
After finding a corpse, they soon learn they’re being forced to play a real life version of Rabbit Doubt. They need to uncover the wolf or they will be picked off one by one. While the group of virtual friends try to reveal the wolf, the bigger question is if they can trust each other?
Many Japanese horror writers have strong grasp of suspense and Tonagai can add himself to the list. We are given a usual horror setting: group of strangers trapped in a building and they have to work together and find the killer who might be among them. This might turn off the seasoned horror fan, but what is fascinating about Doubt is how the characters are forced to solve the puzzle. The clues are given sparingly, logic only works so well, and you are led down a trail of false positives for engrossing mystery.
The character interactions are a little too standard, you have typical archetypes: loner, high school girl, high school boy, quiet genius, etc. They mesh well enough to not be too distracting.
The art supports the story Tonagai wishes to tell. It’s good, characters are easily recognizable and action flows from page to page. His death scenes are gruesome, albeit not to be feeding any fetish. Doubt is one of the best horror comics that Yen has imported since Another.
