One day, the world found out about newly discovered star, that was "eating" other stars. At first, it was so far away, that it became just a nice curiosity entertaining people in their normal daily lives. Then, it begun to come closer and closer, finally eating some of the solar system's planets and taking a straight course for Earth itself...

Hellstar Remina is a spectacular tale of ultimate and unavoidable destruction of humankind, that came unexpected and without humanity's own "help". It's also a solid overview of how people can't cope with their own most primitive instincts (blind revenge), even in the face of final doom.

(Synopsis rewritten from a short note on one of the Junji Ito's fanforums & mentionings on 4chan's bbs)


Jigokusei Remina was published in Spanish by ECC Comics on August 26, 2015. It was also published in Polish as Remina - Gwiazda Piekieł by Japonica Polonica Fantastica in July 2014 as part of "Mega Manga" series.

well, this is one of manga will always be my reminder, to be cautious when press random when searching manga, as i thought nothing could be any better than this, this is pure nightmare, mate.

so the story is kinda random stuff, well what can you expect , this story is mixing whatever human will be,if they're in the face of great unknown, because of that, it led to despair, that always occuring in this plot, until the end, that certainly nightmare.

Cthulu monster certainly interesting stuff.

character is kinda your usual , but the art to symbolize the nightmare, well,..

But overall, it's worth to read.

Overall (8/10) - If you like some other Junji Itou stories (especially Uzumaki), or you really like horror, go ahead and read this. This definitely wont be a waste of time.
If you have never read his works before, this might be a good one to start with. It's creepy but not as gross as a lot of his other works (Gyo, Uzumaki, and many of his short stories), so I would say it is a good introduction.

Story (9/10) - The plot is much more developed and exciting compared to a lot of this mangaka's other works - it seems like Uzumaki is his only other read more

Minor spoilers ahead.

I used to be a huge fan of Junji Ito's work - I sang his praises constantly on Tumblr and recommended him to many of my friends. Now, I see the fault in my actions.

Jigokusei Remina - Hellstar Remina - is a work that feels ultimately pointless.

Hellstar fits quite nicely into the Junji Ito mold - the female heroine watches the world collapse around her, and nearly everyone in the story dies. The work is so full of violence and death that I nearly felt sick reading it - not because I can't stand violence or death (hell, one of my favorite movies read more

Junji Ito is usually known as a great horror mangaka, but in this manga he was also able to mix very well the sci-fi genre with some horror elements. The result can be compare with some 50's and 60's Hollywood sci-fi movies about the end of the world.

Remina is the 16 years old daughter of a reputed Japanese scientist that discovered an orb outside of the Solar System, and the orb was named after Remina. Since this, Remina (the girl) suddenly rises to fame, even though she was always reluctant to become famous.

But Remina's world turns upside down when the Remina orb passes through read more
