    Uzumaki - the only thing that has ever truly disturbed me.

    Thread music





    Uzumaki Is a Horror Manga made by Junji Ito, Famous for his disturbing stories.


    The story begins in a small japanese town on a island, simple place to live in and everything, then suddenly one of the main characters parents get interested in spirals.


    then it all goes to hell from there.



    i can't really talk about the horror parts because they mainly suprisingly disturbing and i think it will ruin it if i talk about it. Lets just say Snails, Mosquitoes, Hurricanes, and more are joining the fun.



    Movie has been made for it in japan, but it's terrible. don't watch it.



    You can read it here (if i just told you to go look for it at the bookstore, your going to just read it there instead of buying it anyway. Also the bottom one is the first chapter, work up to the top.):
    Read Uzumaki Manga Online | Manga Share

    or you can buy all the books at amazon and other places that sell manga books and stuff (it's worth it).


    Seriously it's worth a read. it's Genuinely disturbing in almost every way possible.

    Uzumaki Volume 1 by Junji Ito – Uzumaki Manga Review

    [top]Pros

    • Incredibly inventive horror story that surprises at every turn
    • Meticulously rendered artwork that is gorgeous and creepy at the same time
    • Haunting story that will genuinely give readers the chills

    [top]Cons

    • Includes several disturbing death scenes; not for younger readers or the easily frightened
    • Some stories are more quirky / preachy than creepy


    seriously get it

    also get the rest of his stuff too while your at it. it's brilliant. Agimara fault is the best out of his other misc works.

    Is it that scary? I get scared so easily, not by gore or anything, mostly by jump scares, or scary-looking things. (Exorcist, The Ring, Etc.)
    I am not a big horror fan, so would you still recommend it knowing what I get scared about?

    it isn't really scares, thats the beauty of it.

    It's Actual Genuine horror.

    it's more of disturbing and when it happens it hits you like a giant truck. It's more fright then "Boo! haha scared you"



    for a good example, instead of Friday the 13th, it's more like anything PiroPito makes

    Well, the spiral chapters were so moronic and over-the-top I can't imagine how bad the following ones will be, but it did catch my interest.

    Thanks for sharing, it catched my interest as well.
    I like me some horror stories (Stephen King mostly) from time to time. I've never read any manga before, so I hope it won't dissapoint me.

    Hope I can still get my night sleep after reading.

    You should put a warning on how freaky this can be. Well, let me do it.


    WARNING, THE FOLLOWING MANGA THAT THE OP RECOMMENDED IS OVERLY DISTURBING.

    IF YOU CANīT GET PAST THIS SCENARIO THAT I WILL HEREBY PRESENT, DONīT EVEN THINK ABOUT READING IT:

    In one of the first chapters, the second main father gets obsessed with spirals (the form), he decide later to self become a spiral. He get a small container and BREAKS EVERY DAM LIMB IN HIS BODY AND ROLL, ROLL, ROLL, ROLL himself into a neat formed spiral form. The second main lead opens the container, SURPRISE. Watch the detailed drawn body horror that is presented with exquisite detail. All those nice spirals made outta flesh.

    It gets worse.


    And yes is all about spirals and body horror.

    The ending is fairly depressing but beautifully presented.
    Hand-bra Jeans

    The exposure of the female's soft body. Whether you like it or not, being naked to the waist and the mismatch between the hard and thick jeans. The true essence is the union of girly and boyish styles.At the same time, the hand-bra forces even the current girls that lack shameful feelings to make an embarrassing pose. Depending on how it is seen, it also shows a form of eroticism by making it look like the girls are rubbing their own breasts.

    Junji Ito is a bit of a genius and an extremely underrated talent. Uzumaki is a great manga for people who have a thing for Asian horror.

    I love his work on Tomie and it's adaptations especially. The theme from the first movie is still one of creepiest things I have ever heard, and I still listen to it from time to time.

    no the girl that was friends with that scar girl gets hospitalized and it goes to pure insanity mode for two chapters


    the reason why the mother did all that was because she got a phobia for spirals

    really bad phobia

    I know that already . But the situations are so absrud and moronic that they ain't even scary, no matter how crazy or 'bat-shit crazy' they are.

    I understand. Well, if the art donīt scare you then not much to get from this manga then. I suggest to to at least try the last chapter before deciding to leave it just like that.
