This was my first foray into the world of mangaka Junji Ito and I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction. Fragments of Horror is quite simply one of the best horror anthologies I’ve come across in any medium.

Fragments of Horror is comprised of eight short stories of varying lengths. While some are better than others, they are all effective. It starts off with Futon, which consists of a mere eight pages yet masterfully sets the tone for the anthology. Eerie, quirky, shocking and unpredictable. Said tone is established and maintained by pretty much all of the stories featuring twist-laden plots often incorporating the theme read more

Story 7/10

Ma no Kakera has stand-alone chapters, with pretty simplistic stories, so don't expect something which will blow you away. Despite that lack of complexity, I didn't find most of the stories really predictable. They usually have a twist, which in some cases will leave you like WTF? (specially Nanakuse Kyokumi and Haunted Wood Mansion stories)

Art 10/10

I find Ito Junji's art really great, and Ma no Kakera is not a exception. It fits the story well and creates a proper atmosphere.

Characters 6/10

The worst part of Ma no Kakera. They have no depth and are completly forgettable. However, being a totally plot-driven manga, the characters aren't read more

There's something about Junji Ito's work that I have a hard time putting into words. While reading this, I didn't feel particularly fulfilled after each short story. Some were quite weak and some were pretty strong. Some had interesting premises and execution, some were just kinda silly. But even after reading some of the best stories in this collection, I didn't feel a lot of satisfaction. Then, after I finished the book, it dawned on me: Junji Ito's work is a slow burn. It just sticks with you, coming to mind when you least expect it. It haunts you.

Not that his work is particularly scary read more

Note: I also wrote this review on Goodreads under the name Animelove24 but it is still my review.

This review will be consisted of what I thought of each story.

Futon: A nice short start to the collection. A little bit horrifying, and a little bit funny. I gets you prepared for how all the other stories are going to be.

Wooden Spirit: This one I just found really weird. I didn't really get why the woman was there or why the house turned into a monster. I definitely liked the first one better.

Tomio. Red Turtleneck: Here is where I feel the 'Horror' part of Fragments of Horror read more
