Now that it's aired, join the discussion at /forumtopic-1009735/junji-ito-collections-discussion




The upcoming TV anime based on internationally acclaimed Japanese artist Junji Ito (Gyo, Uzumaki, Tomie)'s horror manga stories, is confirmed to be aired in the winter of 2018 under the title Junji Ito Collection, and its teaser site opened with a concept visual at 02::22 (Ushimitsudoki/the dead of night) on August 10.

Junji Ito Collection is animated by Tokyo-based studio Studio Deen (KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World!), and Shinobu Tagashira (DIABOLIK LOVERS) serves as director and character designer. She has been a big fan of Ito's horror manga stories and has wished to make their anime adaptations by herself.

Not sure of this, but I admit, The Enigma of Amigara Fault is pretty great.

It'll be really interesting to see how they plan to animate this.

Meh. If this was a manga collection of all of Ito's fantastic works I would be sold in a heartbeat but with the recent trend of horror tv anime being either completely toothless or overcensored to bait people into buying blu-rays I find it unlikely that this will be the adaptation his works deserve.

Just watched a few videos about Junji Ito's work, found out Guillermo Del Toro was inspired by many of Ito's works in an interview about the canceled Silent Hills. Damn, I am incredibly angry at Konami. Fuck, it would have been so awesome.

I'll be looking forward to seeing some Tomie stories animated.
