Filled with excitement, Kirie shares the news with her teacher, who invites his astronomer friend to confirm the discovery. The astronomer, Mr. Torino, is shocked at the existence of the galaxy and realizes that it will bring Shuuichi endless fame.

This story takes place between the Shuichi's parents arc and the Everything goes to shit arc, with the tornados and the town transforming. In many ways, it's similar to Remina.

This reads like a dry-run for Hellstar Remina, and I wouldn't be surprised if it inspired the latter. Honestly, I prefer this to Remina--the basic premise (a person's identity becomes entwined with a destructive cosmic force, leading to a parody of celebrity/idol culture) is solid and very Ito, but the ideas here are more horrific and interesting.

I do think cutting it from Uzumaki proper was the right decision, since the cosmology of this piece doesn't really work with the explanation for what happens in the main manga.

Anyway, whether you read it on its own, as part of Uzumaki, or as a Remina prototype, read more
