    So for the ones who don´t know him. He is a horror mangaka which works are really amazing and creative
    I have been reading his stories for quite a while and even though they don't make me scream they are scary in a more psycological way
    My favorites stories
    • the enigma of amigara fault
    • layers of fear
    • uzumaki
    • the bully
    • hanging balloons
    • ice cream bus
    • hellstar remina
    • long dream
    So apparently, there will be a new anime of one of his most popular mangas
    Uzumaki

    I don't want to get my hopes high after that terrible first adaptation
    but it looks really promising
    what do you think about it?
    Are you interested in it?

    don't worry about this adaptation it had Junji Ito's look and approval he was reluctant about it at first
    I think this animation is gonna be SO GOOD
    and Yes I am a big Junji Ito fan he is my favorite manga and a real inspiration

    This will be godlike compared to the shitty anime adaptation

    Junji is going to direct himself so we're in safe hands.

    oh
    I didn't know he was also involved, that' a relief
    honestly I'm glad they kept it black and white

    yay another fan of his work
    what are your favorites works?

    ngl at first it was difficult to take seriously that story because of that line
    But it is such a fantastic one it literally make me feel claustrophobic

    I love him! My favs are hellstar remina and uzumaki, I´m excited for the new anime version, I don´t like anime but this one looks really good, also Uzumaki has already a movie (2002) you should check it out, it´s pretty decent

    hellstar remina is one of my favorites :omgr:
    I knew about the movie but I have bad experiences with live actions :quietr: so I never watched maybe i would check it later. The new version looks so damn good

    If you like junji ito collection you should really check uzumaki in 2020 :yesr:

    I liked many of his mangas but Human Chair and Lingering Feelings are the ones that made an impact to me. Human Chair was really disturbing to me while Lingering Feelings is really sad... I guess Tomie too since I really hated Tomie....

    Why did you put glyceride? :whatk:
    omg you made me lose my apetite
    I literally screamed "Close you damn mouth" in that scene
    So disturbing
    Hellstar Remina is so underrated :(
    I love how the mob mentality was portrayed in that story plus I felt so bad for Remina and his father :(
