Japanese Title: 終末の貞子さん (Shumatsu no Sadako-san)
Published: 17 November 2020
Genres: Graphic Novel, Horror, Comedy, Supernatural, Slice of Life, Fiction
Available as: Manga
Sadako at the End of the World takes place in a post-apocalyptic setting. Two female survivors attempt to watch a movie and summon Sadako. They spend a week together, meeting new people and another spirit along the way. Death is depicted but not in an explicit or gory manner.
I would recommend this manga to children and teens who enjoy horror or apocalyptic settings. One element that I enjoyed was that the story did not require prior knowledge of Sadako. As the reader follows the sisters’ progress in their journey, they learn with the characters.
