Drama is at its best when the protagonist is playing for high stakes, and in the best gore manga those high stakes usually entail death and dismemberment. Manga with bloody and gory visuals are not for everyone, but they still have a rabid following because the audience is loyal. In horror manga, characters can meet the worst fate at any time. Don't get too attached to anyone, because they might be chopped in half or decapitated in the next issue you read. Stories like Battle Royale, Terra Formers and Shigurui are exemplars of this sort of  formula, and we're ranking those along with a ton of other good gore manga on the poll below.
