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 least state that this collection is worthy of being titled after 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.

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 I feel read more

When an anime makes such a drastic turn in quality, enjoyment and fear factor to the point where you're compelled to write a review about it is proof that you should give it at least a shot.

As you can guess from the name, The Ito Junji collection is many of his short stories turned into anime. If you're completely unfamiliar with any of Ito Junjis work, I highly recommend you read "uzumaki". It's not very long however gives you a great starting place for understanding Junjis world.

When placed into anime form, it honestly looks like his imagery and art have come to life, read more
