  • cool i love Junji Ito, i literally had nightmares about "Uzumaki"


    any idea of which stories are they going to animate? hopefully "Remina" and also the one from him and his cat


    Junji Ito's Cat Diary: Yon & Mu

    I finished the anthology and it leaves plenty of room for additional seasons. I don’t recall an episodes called Remina or Yon & Mu this time. I also had a bit of a nightmare due to this series lol. Some images got stuck in my mind.

    hopefully it does well enough for them to make more seasons, i still want an adaptation of "Hellstar Remina"


    oh also there was another story, i forgot the name but the plot was something like if 2 or more people got together they would later appear dead and their bodies stitched together

    from all his works the part that grossed me out the most were the snails from Uzumaki, i read the manga a huge while ago but i still recall that around that time it was raining a lot so there were lots of snails in the garden of my house... yeah, not fun

    I think he was very good at making something so scary out of the ordinary or random things in everyday life -- then it gets psychological horror etc. I am still thinking about some of the episodes I saw hahah they really creeped me out but I'm glad I watched it.
