LHOGRHOD... I just wasted an hour of my life reading 300+ pages of that. It is written so poorly, everyone but the main are dumber than trump supporters and the supernatural elements are weak and lackluster. Its exactly like in B horror films where everyone dies because they ignore multiple obvious warnings and signs for no reason and have the IQ of the amount of political experience trump has. But if gore is what you find scary and you dont mind shoving trash in your eyes then I guess in a neoliberal fantasy LHOGRHOD might be scary.

 

Ito on the other hand is weird (in the 'real' way!!!) but is at least cohesive and bearable at worst. Ito's art style is also cleaner and the writing is good. I didn't eat fish for a week and after several years my friends and I still make jokes about spirals. I really enjoy Ito's take on Japanese cultural memes about conformity and technology.   

Of all the flavors in the world, you chose to be salty? Fucking hell man, you don't need to add political commentary into everything you say. Especially when the amount of political nuance you add is "ICKY YUCKY, HE BAD, WAAAAAAAAAH!!!!"

 

Just letting you know it's in poor taste, because I actually agree with you on that "horror" manga.

But trump win election.

I def agree about them not really being comparable. But, thanks to that first comment i went ahead and started reading LHOGRHOD and it's definitely much more terrifying than I had expected based on what few plain drawings I had seen of the characters before. Probably scarred for life now.

i love Itou Junji's art and stories, master of horror hehe he's one of my favorite author!

It is kinda unfair to compare Itou with the god of horror manga Kazuo Umezu, specially if it is this compilation being compared to one of Umezz's masterpieces LHOGRHOD. 
 
Itou has some great horror manga like Gyo, Tomie, Uzumaki, Hell star Lemina, but the stories that are presented in here are more on the side of variety and drama, while some are indeed horror, but not always, well anyway, i find the comparison unfair, if this was Uzumaki and LHOGRHOD, i would understand, kinda, but i think the thing doesn't holds at all with this case.

The bronze statue one is just great. I love it when they turn out like that.

After the latest chapter, I feel like a comedy tag is in order...

Those stories aren't so scary. Left hand of god, right hand of the devil is more scary than this.

I thought I misread the chapter title "Memories of Real Shit" at first, laughed, reread it... ಠ_ಠ

It's hard to forget when shit gets real.

That lines about NSA... priceless.

The unresolved endings are one of Itou's trademarks, and a huge part of what makes his stories so scary. Notice how the horror is almost never defeated in his stories. The only way to survive is to run, and hope to God that by running fast enough and far enough, it won't come looking for you again.

I have an irrational fear towards severed heads and beheading methods - and that story, despite not having any real monstrous-looking characters, really creeped me out.

 

It takes mental strength to read multiple Itou stories in one sitting.

 

THIS.

 

"Red Turtleneck" too ~

Arguably, the abrupt and unexplained endings are things that make a good horror story work. It gives readers a sense of suspense right up until the end. And it is also consistent with Itou's writing style. So far I only found Itou's Gyo to have some sort of a "good" ending.

So, I dared someone to read this, she's now having bad dreams.
But I kinda wish that the stories have some sort of closure or explanations at the end. It's always like a never-ending cliffhanger.

haha, i like this manga ^_^ subscribed!

It just doesn't get any better than Junji Itou.

 

Why aren't all of these manga adapted into anime, I wonder?

 

Can you imagine the ratings his work would get, on a weekly basis? Someone is sleeping on money. Wake up.

 

It's probably too gruesome to adapt into anime. If you look at anime adaptations, they tend to tone down gore and gruesome themes from the manga; Ito's work tends to largely thrive on things that might be considered too gruesome. Gyo is the only one of his works to have an anime adaptation; otherwise, though, his works do get adapted into live-action.

Creeeeeepy x.x

Fucking face balloons...

i keep hoping for continuations on many of the stories, they keep ending in the most unsatisfactory of places. Many times I keep going back and forth thinking that I'm missing something.
