In the light of day and in the dead of night, mysterious horrors await in the darkest shadows of every corner. They are unexplainable, inescapable, and undefeatable. Be prepared, or you may become their next victim.

Sit back in terror as traumatizing tales of unparalleled terror unfold. Tales, such as that of a cursed jade carving that opens holes all over its victims' bodies; deep nightmares that span decades; an attractive spirit at a misty crossroad that grants cursed advice; and a slug that grows inside a girl's mouth. Tread carefully, for the horrifying supernatural tales of the Itou Junji: Collection are not for the faint of heart.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Itou Junji: Collection is collection of animated horror stories based on the works of Japanese artist Junji Itou.

Junji ito deserves more recognition, he's undoubtedly one of the best horror anime writers !
The first episode was funny but later in the anime it gets dark to the point where i couldn't even sleep but he did a good job because that's one of the main objectives of a horror anime.
Would definitely recommend !
But should read the manga first cuz it has more details and looks scarier than the anime .
It contains traumatizing tales of different stories like a snail growing out of a girl's mouth , an attractive women making men fawn over her , making them crazy over her then awaits ...

Mixed Feelings
Am a bit confused with this one, Because the episodes are short a bit too short almost all stories have no real ending.
it's a plot that start with something creepy and than on the climax it quits and goes to the next story, and this happen 24x.
Every episode has 2 stories. i was recommend this anime by different websites because i like horror, but beside some creepy/gory things there is not really any horror to find here.

in my opinion it could be better, less childish and more adult like less humor and more drama would work.
i give it a 7 because i liked the art ...

This collection was one of my most anticipated anime projects at the time and when it released it was the biggest pile of shit ever junji Ito has always been the greatest mangaka there was at writing bone chilling stuff with some of the greatest art I've seen and this is just a stain that carries none of the impact.
Furthermore the art just feels flat it's a massive nothing burger with no soul behind the art just a cheap imitation of something superior. The voice acting is also lackluster and doesn't fit well it's like watching the Schneider cut of Batman Vs superman in German.
