Though her trip to Okinawa was supposed to be a lovely excursion to the seaside, college student Kaori Sawahara finds that it is anything but when a horrifying menace emerges from the watery depths. A strange mechanism has taken control of the sea creatures, granting them legs and sending them on land to attack anything in their way. Kaori and her friends—the lustful Erika and the reserved Aki—find themselves caught up in this onslaught, made worse by the creatures' rotting stench of death.

Surviving the first assault, Kaori tries to contact her fiancé Tadashi in Tokyo. However, the call is cut short in what sounds like another fish attack. Fearing for his safety, Kaori leaves for Tokyo. With Erika and Aki contending with the attacks in Okinawa, Kaori rushes to find Tadashi, unaware that the crisis has only just begun.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Gyo adapts Itou Junji's manga series of the same title. It follows the same story as the manga but switches the roles of Kaori and Tadashi while adding new characters and subplots.

I feel the need to write a review for this interesting little film right here simply because of it's score on this website, which I feel doesn't do it justice whatsoever and therefore I need to be that white knight for anime everyone hates. The reason I wanted to view this came from two reasons. One, I had recently finished Junji Ito's Uzumaki, which I found to be amazing and terrifying, and two, I've had and interest in Ufotable this anime's studio since I've been watching the well known film works the Kara no Kyōkai series. The original novels of which come from none ...

In short, don't watch this - read the manga. If you refuse to read though, this is still fairly entertaining while irritating.

The original comic is of horror by famous mangaka Junji Ito. This movie turns that into a thriller disaster flick and while it doesn't completely ruin it, it dampers the experience and makes it completely ridiculous later on (seriously, whoever was in-charge of the soundtrack must be insane). The biggest issue with this movie is that the director clearly didn't agree with the horror of the original, he must've not thought you could make regular fish scary. Well I beg to differ, but he ...

This is probably the worst anime movie I've seen. I haven't seen many to be fair, but this still is... not good.

It's a poor adaptation of Junji Ito's manga, and it's just overall unpleasant. It's body horror without any real message behind it. It's also just unnecessarily weird. Walking fish coming on land and turning people into green fart monsters sounds like a low-effort South Park Episode.

There is some decent characterization. The main character is likable enough and realistic, but she can't fix this movie.

If you like extreme gross outs maybe you'll get a kick out of this, but if you're a ...
