Synopsis

High school student Ryuusuke Fukada returns to the place he grew up: Nazumi, a town drenched in thick fog. Thanks to the unique weather, one game has become commonplace among the residents: intersection fortune-telling, where strangers meet up at crossroads to ask for anonymous advice. Though fun and exciting for most, this game holds nothing but dark memories for Ryuusuke, for when he was a child, his involvement had disastrous results for the other player. As a result, these memories hinder Ryuusuke's return to the town, as well as his reunion with his childhood friend Midori Shibayama.

With Ryuusuke's arrival however, a new figure emerges in this game: the Intersections Pretty Boy. This devilishly handsome but wicked presence gives nothing but cruel and harsh advice to anyone who has the misfortune of crossing his path. What's more, his advice has bewitching effects on those he encounters. With tragic results spreading as a consequence, Ryuusuke determines to prevent this man from repeating the past. But can he stop this enigmatic figure, or do only torment and misery await those who try?

Story:
Some of Ito's works are bundled together and released as compilation volumes. I thought this would be one such volume, but it turns out that each chapter is linked. It's a bummer, really, that this wasn't titled something different as a standalone work. Works of his like Gyo, Uzumaki, Black Paradox, and Remina are relatively well known but it seemed this one was somewhat hidden under his vast 'bookography,' for lack of a better term.

This is a sin, really, because this particular volume has just as much wit as his other works do. I'll be the first to admit that I did find certain aspects read more

I've read all of Junji Itou collection, and for those who don't know: this is one part of the whole compilation of short horror stories from the author. And people who read this already know, that these stories aren't even that "scary", but more of a shock factor or just an obvious twist which is repeated over and over in this collection.

Before jumping into the main point, let me clarify that I really admire how unique and creative Junji is in making these manga. That's also the reason why I keep reading this, even if it means having to deal with hard-to-read parts like Souichi, read more
