Synopsis

In a futuristic Japan, astrologist Tsuneo Ooguro has made a monumental achievement: he has discovered a new planet from another universe. The discovery propels the professor into the public eye, where he is met with accolades, acclaim, and the rights to name the planet. Deciding to let his daughter Remina serve as the namesake, the shy girl quickly finds herself thrust into an uneasy life of stardom.

Unlike its human counterpart, planet Remina shows nothing but odd behavior. Its movements are unpredictable and show no clear orbital patterns. Even more mysterious, any star it nears soon disappears. The enigma heightens when Professor Ooguro's assistant claims that planet Remina has stopped moving and looked him directly in the eye. Before going mad, the assistant announces one final thing: the planet is now heading toward Earth.

Soon enough, planet Remina enters the solar system, leaving a trail of emptiness and causing worldwide panic. In an instant, popular adoration transforms into hostility; the populace have declared that the Ooguros have orchestrated this disaster and must be destroyed to avert it. Now deemed Public Enemy No. 1, Remina must escape a rabid population, all while the looming threat of the hellstar approaches.

Okuman Bocchi (Army of One)
One cold morning, a missing couple resurfaces, floating dead in a lake, naked, and stitched together. Elsewhere, 19-year-old shut-in Michio is visited by his former classmate Natsuko, who invites him to an upcoming class reunion. Meanwhile, the murders start to rise, and the amount of people stitched together only grows in number. With this increase, the presence of a mysterious group known only as the "Army of One" grows more prevalent. As Michio starts to suspect that the Army of One could be behind the killings, he begins to fear that Natsuko may end up as a target.

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.

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

TL;DR - Hellstar Remina is a good manga. Just know that it has some pretty gross imagery and a disturbing plot. Squeamish readers beware.

If you've read an Itou Junji manga before, you know shit is getting real real up in here. Let me just state this: Hellstar Remina includes some crazy imagery that is not suited for everyone. Eldrich abominations and locations are in there. With that, let's go. There'll be some very slight spoilers in this text. You have been warned.

Hellstar Remina's premise is incredibly simple. A professor predicts a wormhole to be present in the Hydra constellation. One day a planet is read more

Ahhh...another classic by Junji Ito himself. I've been waiting to read Jigokusei Remina when I was in a definite mood for some good gore/horror, and Junji can always satisfy my appetite for that. The story leans a lot toward syfy though, with flying cars, cell phone watches and such, which I've never been into that genre, but it being a piece by Junji Ito, I knew he would combine his usual grotesque style and syfy-ish feel into one perfectly.

!!!!SPOILERS AHEAD!!!! DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER!!!!! I'M SORRY BUT I FELT THE NEED TO SAY A FEW THINGS...

I read a few discussions at the end and read more
