Manga / Bloody Maiden: Juusanki no Shima

Go To

Created by Taida Kikuhiko and Hanao Sutaro, Bloody Maiden: Juusanki no Shima is a Slasher Movie manga, with many of the standard tropes played very straight. Because of this, it is mature; and as you can tell by the number of spoilers on here, there are Death Tropes abound.

It is the 16th century. A group of bandits known as the Kidoshu wander Japan, plundering and storing their vast treasures on Toomariki Island. However, they don’t escape the law for long, and eventually are caught, crucified, and burned alive. Over time, their legend fades, leaving the island and the museum on it as the only monument to them.

Flash forward a few centuries. Onitsuka Miaki and Koizumi Suzuka, along with the ten other girls in their naginata club and their advisor, go to Toomarimiki for a retreat to hone their skills. However, the gruesome past of the island rapidly catches up, and as one after another gets brutally offed, they have to band together to find who the killer is, and fast.


Provides Examples Of:

  • Action Girls: With a naginata club, one would expect this trope to be in the cards, but not so much. Some of the girls do try and manage to pull off a fight before getting killed.
  • Action Survivors: Miaki, Koizumi, and Yuri are the only survivors.
  • A-Cup Angst: Kaizawa. The others don’t fail to bring this up.
  • Anyone Can Die
  • Blackmail: Kotone is revealed to be a victim of this in Chapter 10.
  • Big Eater: Suzuka. She devours almost all of Risa’s rice and immediately asks for seconds.
  • Bittersweet Ending
  • Boobs of Steel: Kotone and Risa. The former is the captain, while the latter is the vice-captain and the only person so far to parry the killer. Doesn’t help in the end, though.
  • Break the Cutie: Overall, all the characters via the killer. Specifically, Miaki right after seeing Risa, her big sister figure, killed and thrown off a windmill as the fifth sacrifice.
