Kazuo is the grandmaster of Japanese horror manga. He published his first manga while still at high school and began working professionaly in the field after his graduation. His first creations were 'Betsu-Sekai' ('Another World') and 'Mori-no-Kyoudai' ('The Brother and Sister in a Forest'). He mainly created his works for so-called Kashi-hon, magazines that were not for sale but for rent. He developed his detailed horror style in 1962, when he settled in Tokyo. His works 'Kuchi ga Mimi made Sake-ru Toki' ('The Moment The Mouth Tears to Ears'), 'Hebi Shoujo' ('The Snake Girl') and 'Hito-kobu Shoujo' ('A Girl Who Has A Human-faced Lump on Her Cheek') were his first claims to fame as a master in the horror genre.

Kami no Hidarite Akuma no Migite and Orochi were a work of genius. Umezu is a truly masterful writer. It's such a shame he's not that accessible in the market here in North America. I love this guy.

gahh. Why won't they finish translating Scary Book and start on his other stuff?? This guy is freakin genius. Never in my life would I think a manga would freak me out.

Umezu Kazuo no Noroi was one of the most spine-chilling anime I ever saw, Umezu is the best when it comes to horror artworks. *Respect*
