"Worth finishing up but don't expect anything much"

This being my first Junji Itou manga, his artwork drew me in because it was either more Western or it had a more conservative action POV panel style than most mangas I'm used to.

It's also the first horror comic I really tried following through and finishing but most of that is due to the blessings of the internet making these types of works easier to find and finish.

This newness is probably what convinced me to rate the art this good and yet be more critical of the manga's story even if it was already touted as a set read more

Yami no Koe is extremely underrated. I have been trying to find other Junji Ito manga that are as good as Uzumaki and I just wasn't having any luck. Tomie and Gyo are solid manga series but I wanted better. Upon reading Yami no Koe I was surprised at how good each and every story was. In fact in my opinion the individual stories in Yami no Koe are better than the ones that Uzumaki has. The only thing that puts Uzumaki on top is that Junji Ito was able to weave all the stories together under one setting. The atmosphere and eeriness is amplified read more

Yami no Koe is a goru manga collection by renowned author and artist Junji Ito. Known for his gruesome and psychological horror with a career that spans many years. The first collection I read by him was Mimi's Ghost Stories, known in romanised Japanese as Mimi no Kaiden. I wasn't too keen on the story itself and so was hesitant to go into this collection. However, after hearing great things from my friend on the story Glyceride from my friend and finding it was present in this collection, I decided to throw caution to the wind.

This collection is hard to review. The stories are disjointed read more

I seem to be making a habit of marking down highly rated authors lately. I loved Uzumaki for its weirdness, and just about tolerated Gyo (maybe have to do a review of that in the near future), but Voices in the Dark didn't really do it for me, for all of Glyceride's gross-out factor.

Art 6/10
Was fairly torn on whether to rate this a six or a seven tbh. I both love and hate Junji Ito's signature style at this point. I like how it's very realistic, but at the same time, if you've seen one Ito work, you've seen literally all of them bar the read more
