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.

Remina is cosmic horror in it's purist form.

A Lovecraftian planet is here to devour our solar system. Not the planet, EVERYTHING!

The art is beautiful, the perspective stunning and the sense of movement in the panels will cause you to flip the pages at the speed of light.

It does have a flaw though. Unlike his other works there is a sense of hopelessness here. Remina is going to devour everything so no matter what the characters do or don't do it's sorta pointless.

The manga does point your focus to the individuals, how fear turned correlation to causation leading to mass hysteria... but again from the very ...

This is another good work by Junji Itto. The story of Remina is too creative. The main character experiences scary emotions, the event Remina clearly depicts the evil nature of humanity, faith and the primitive things of man have been exposed. The ending is reasonable, but the process of flying across the continents is quite funny and not too interesting.
Actually I'm not a fan of the planet theme, the scale shown when the whole planet cannibalize another planet is too big, the characters are too small compared to the planet, so this performance is not too appealing. The attraction here is the confrontation between Remina ...

This is my second manga from Junji Ito and sadly it's even worse than the first one. I'am still positive that Junji Ito has made some great mangas that I will eventually read. But this was not one of them.

Story moves rather quickly but even despite of that the atmosphere was pretty haunting. At least in the first chapter. After that I was being way too distracted by the ridicoulous portrayal of human nature and borderline hysterically comedic moments towards the end. I don't know whenever it was Junji's intention to make me laugh. I genuinely believe that he was doing it on purpose. ...
