Every Monday, YouTubers Joey the Anime Man and Aki Dearest join forces to bring you The Anime Show, an hour that covers what’s hot, what’s not, what’s new and what you should be watching in the world of anime!

In the latest episode, Joey and Aki decide to celebrate Halloween by talking about their favourite horror manga!

While there are a number of great horror anime over the years, the duo think manga has a lot to offer for horror fans, such as Magical Girl Apocalypse. Having said that, the duo think, without a shadow of a doubt, that the two best authors of horror manga ever are Kazuo Umezu (for Joey) and Junji Ito (for Aki), both of whom were pioneers for the genre and are considered the "grandfathers" of horror manga.

But as for their favourite horror manga series ever, Joey doesn't hesitate to nominate Oyasumi Punpun as the greatest manga series ever made.

High praise right there!
