Synopsis

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...

Jigokusei 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.

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

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

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
