Watch this anime! If you are into horror this one is definitely a must watch.

Anime of the season to be honest.This anime is a collection of horror stories and each one is unique with different characters in each story. If you watched yamishibai before, well the art is better than that and the stories are longer in length.

Each episode are not made equal because each episode has a different horror story than the previous one. Episode 2 is really good so I recommend you start on episode 2 then watch episode 1 because episode 2 has 2 horror shorts in one episode and read more

*I plan to update this review shortly after all episodes have aired*
Within the horror manga community Junji Ito is a King. The unique and atmosphere way in which he tells stories, paired with his surrealistic, almost confrontational art, has made him a household name regarding both the short story format, and the horror manga genre, some even going as far as saying he is the most influential, and subsequently the best. Admittedly, I am a huge fan and must agree, but the real question lies in whether the transition from panel to animation is as smooth as we all wish. So far, I can at read more

The anime objective it's to give the viewers a little taste about Junji Ito's work. If you like the horror genre, you really should try watching it and, if you prefer, you could read the entire collection. The art from the anime reminds me of the manga, and that's the objective, loved it!

The sounds are well-placed too. The characters are amazing and i really enjoyed the anime. But if you really liked the anime too, you have to read the manga because the anime isn't as perfect as the manga is. They really did a great job in this adaptation!

Waiting ansiously for another episode.

This series consists of short horror stories from Junji Ito's collection. Most of them don't really give you jumpfrights, eerie/haunting would describe them better.
The anime doesn't fully do the manga justice. The art is nice enough but it has lost some of Junji Ito's feel. The score up till now is okay, nothing special. In episode 3 Lovesick Dead, I actually disliked it at the start, since it didn't fit the eerie vibe of the story.
The anime does stay true to the manga for the most part (except for episode 3). I know this all sounds kinda negative but I think my expectations read more
