I read some of Junji Ito’s works in highschool, but I didn’t remember much. That’s what happens, when you binge manga late at night on a laptop screen.
This time, I got a hardcover version and took my sweet time. It was a lot of fun.

Spirals… this town is contaminated with spirals…
Kurouzu-cho, a small fogbound town on the coast of Japan, is cursed. According to Shuichi Saito, the withdrawn boyfriend of teenager Kirie Goshima, their town is haunted not by a person or being but by a pattern: uzumaki, the spiral — the hypnotic secret shape of the world. This bizarre masterpiece of horror manga is now available in a single volume. Fall into a whirlpool of terror!

I really enjoyed this book, but not in the usual/conventional way. The stories are in the horror genre, but my humour is really dark.
I laughed more often than I was creeped out. It kept getting more and more ridiculous.
My favourite moments: when people began turning into snails, when people refuges in the shack houses began to tangle into knots, when people began spinning around to create whirlwinds and battle like beyblades… how am I supposed not to laugh?
I’ve been doodling spirals ever since I read The Stone Canoe: Two Lost Mi’kmaq Texts, but now my spiral doodles have intensified!
I really wanted to count the amount of spirals in this book, but my partner dissuaded me from wasting the whole day without reason.
