In the summer, siblings Michina and Yuusuke Hirose visit their distant relatives in the countryside. Though they haven't met in years, they quickly find that they're in for a relaxing vacation: they get along well with their cousins Kouchi and Sayuri Tsujii, there's a pool within walking distance, and the scenery is ever refreshing. There is just one blight upon this otherwise lovely trip: Souichi Tsujii, the bratty third Tsujii child and black sheep of the family.

Nail-sucking, occult-loving, and utterly mischievous, Souichi's idea of amusement is anything that makes others squirm. Whether its throwing curses on his cousins, bewitching his classmates, or replacing his teachers with living dolls, Souichi finds all kinds of ways to ruin the fun that he's left out of. But even with his own mystical powers, his havoc never lasts too long: for when Souichi causes trouble, it always comes back his way.

This volume was a brief departure from the one-shots present in the preceding volumes. Instead, there was a constant cast of characters, with each story revolving around the occult-themed antics of Souichi, a troubled boy.

Story, 7: The stories were sorted in chronological order, and though they were mostly self-contained, there was definitely a passage of time. Most of them involved voodoo or other occult themes (curses, premonitions, etc.), which was good for establishing a creepy feeling without being overtly supernatural (aside from the middle chapters).

Art, 7: Given the more subdued nature of the stories, there weren't as many chances for Ito's artistry to shine. read more

Junji Ito is a master of coming up with great concepts of horror, but his main weakness is uninteresting characters. This is normally not a problem, since short stories of 20 length dont require alot of personality in the cast. But in this collection, the cast remains the same from story to story, and that really makes it obvious that the cast is just not that interesting, with the exception of Souchi. His art is also at its best when drawing really weird and horrifying shit, which the more grounded stories in this collection dont really feature.

TLDR: If youre a Junji Ito fanatic, this is read more
