Ryusuke is haunted by a childhood incident in which he dismissed a woman seeking her fortune; he believes that by doing so he inadvertently caused her suicide. Fortunately, despite my misgivings, this is a tale that Ito allowed to grow into something a little more.

Eventually, unable to cope with her coy flirtation and their desire to possess Tomie completely, they are inevitably compelled to kill her — only to discover that, regardless of the method they chose to dispose of her body, her body will always regenerate.Unfortunately the main story also isn’t among the better parts of the collection but it’s a decent book overall. Rumors begin to spread at school he is the Intersection Bishounen, which causes girls to flee to him in a madstruck state of love and boys to despise him. Fan Mob: A very twisted case with the boy at the crossroads and the girls he has told will not find love. She asked him if she would find happiness and being in a bad mood, Ryusuke answered no, so the woman killed herself. Nick Smith from ICv2 praised the narrative of the first half of the story, though he also felt the second half did not fit with the first.

Clever, atmospheric, and beautifully creepy, “Lovesickness” highlights Ito’s conceptual genius, his ability to squeeze seemingly endless permutations of horror from a single concept. Some girls mention that ten years before, a woman killed herself after playing Intersection Fortune Telling. Bittersweet Ending: While at the end, the boy at the crossroads and ghosts seem to be gone, many lives have been ruined by intersection fortune-telling and the protagonist must bear the burden of restoring and aiding the town as it continues its practice.The Strange Hikizuri Siblings’ was incredibly creepy solely due to the character designs, and ‘The Mansion of Phantom Pain’ had an awesome concept where characters where less important. I liked it, and the illustrations are, of course, great, but it’s not satisfying, nor is it the author’s most innovative work. Ito's stories, my sanity seriously, honestly is not doing well and my level of mental health is also dropping. I suppose I’m happy to just have more of Ito’s work collected and translated, but it made a book that started so strongly end on a bad note. Starting with the strikingly bloody “Lovesickness,” this volume collects ten stories showcasing horror master Junji Ito in peak form, including “The Strange Hikizuri Siblings” and “The Rib Woman.

The majority, who are told they will never have love, become obsessed with their crushes until a final rejection pushes them to kill themselves. Memories of Real Poop” was humorous and presumably autobiographical, but at just four pages long it was at best an amusing little epilogue. I love Junji Ito, in case you haven't been following along, and having any complaints about getting hardcover editions as nice as the ones from Viz feels a little like the very definition of looking a gift horse in the mouth but also the decisions that Viz keeps making about what, exactly, the bring out remain frequently perplexing.Junji Ito is known as the prevailing modern master of horror manga, his work includes Usumaki, Gyo , an award-winning adaptation of Frankenstein and the collections Fragments of Horror and Lovesickness.
