Something in Okinawa reeks, and it isn't long before Tadashi and his girlfriend Kaori realize that the smell is coming from dead fish, which are walking out of the sea.

Horror is a hard thing to make in comics today without just being a mindless blood bath of gore and fluids splattered across the walls. Junji Ito does a good job of providing us with good, freaky stories that scare or just plain old disturbs us. Gyo is one of his most recent stories that he took a chance with and provided us with a new look of what is under the sea. Not just that either, in this series we were also given two quick short stories at the end of the series to leave us terrified of not going under read more

Gyo— another masterpiece by Junji Ito after 'Uzumaki', one of the greatest horror manga series that could have ever been made! Having his works equipped with bizarre plots and aberrant visuals, Junji has proved that horror is not necessarily synonymous with 'the ghost with long black hair' or 'the evil, bloodsucking vampires lurking in the bush out there'. He has the ability to create gruesome horror out of anything and everything, even if it is a fish. Fish— that's exactly what he portrays in 'Gyo', well, in an extremely absurd way that is beyond anyone's imagination with Junji being an exception of course.

Junji Ito used a similar character design for both of his longer stories, though with evil twist and a grain of salt the size of tropical island on the part of Gyo. Overall athmosphere is almost equally as disturbing in means of imaginairy and storyline as Uzumaki, though leaves the reader in more intense sense of bitter loss at the end.
Both are about strange unfamiliar disease, and a bit of romance. But "Gyo" is more the work of fiction and "Emerging" events are more likely to happen.
