Overall- 8.5/10
A pretty decent collection from Junji Ito with consistently good art but not so consistent stories.

1. *Futon*:
Man, Ito sure does not like guys named Tomio. It won’t be wise to expect much from a story of only 7 pages, and the story does not do much to prove you wrong either.

The only reason I picked "Mixed Feelings" in the recommended section is because I didn't like all of the stories.

TLDR: pretty boring but has some promising moments

Right, so I didn't like this very much. I've heard over the years how Ito is this supposedly amazing horror artist and writes these creepy stories. I picked up this copy of short stories and was exited to finally enjoy some horror as its been a while since I've read any.

The story's are quite boring besides two, maybe three of them, the art is great, but the story's are quite frankly not creepy or uncomfortable to me. The further I got into the manga the more I enjoyed them I assume this is because, as ITO explains in ...
