    Horror fanatic must watch
    Junji Ito the hyped up manga artist that was known for his horror is finally going to be animated. the "Japan version of Stephen king"
    Worth a watch.

    the first episode was not weird at all by any means. This is pretty much the art of his series so give it a try and see if it is your style

    i love this show ! xD
    the first episode wasnt a let down its not really horror to me i think its more of a comedy because just how the character was being in the show from the beginning i thought it was pretty funny the way he talks does not meet the requirments of horror xD

    This will only get better
    The first episode was totally fine imo, but it's only going to get better. Junji Ito is the horror master and by the looks of the first ep, the style is captured nicely with great animation. Prepare for some scares everyone! Can't wait to see my favourites from his collections being animated!

    Has the potential to be a Master Class in horror, but really depends on which stories of Junji Ito are used...
    Having watched the first episode. It's understandable that people new to Junji Ito's works would be rather underwhelmed and confused by it. As the show's marketing kind of paints a picture that this is going to be a definitive anime collection of truly terror-inspiring horror short stories from one of Japan's kings of the horror manga. To only get an almost comedic first episode about Souichi a ...

    First episode leaves you wanting more...Eep!
    So I've never read anything by Junji Ito and I didn't do any research because I wanted to view it without any sort of opinion going into it. Now it is being touted as a genre defining series, so imo it does not meet that expectation concerning horror. The first ep is more of a slightly suspenseful, comedic act than it is a nightmare haunting episode of horror. That being said, ...

  • A solid adaption of Ito's style so far
    Previous Ito adaptions haven't been the best, and often misrepresent the tone the stories initially went for, but thankfully so far this anime series seems to be the first to truly understand the appeal of his works. The Souichi story adapted in the first episode was an odd choice given it's more of a dark comedy than straight horror, but it was enjoyable nonetheless, and the adaption of the Hell ...

    This is a huge letdown.
    I'm a huge Junji Ito, I have a lot of his books, and love his art. This anime is a straight up insult to his art. Things are just animated horribly. The scene where the fashion model is chasing them in the second episode is so poorly animated. It's pathetic how poor the animation is.

    Both of the stories in episode 2 are in the book Shiver. They are drawn way better, and are actually scary. This ...

  • So far so good, excited for more
    As an avid Junji Ito fan words cannot express how excited i was for this. Hes one of the most prolific horror creators, of all time, in my opinion.

    The anime is pretty good. The stories are told as accurately as possible, short of cutting some scenes for time. The horrific ito imagery doesnt have as much punch as the mangas, however. But i feel that is to he expected when transitioning from ...

    Animation is okay, story is very weak
    3 episodes in, so 6 stories, and so far only one has been able to create even a moderate sense of unease, and had some potential. But even the stories with potential wind up falling short at the end, as if Junji Ito has problems with creating decent endings. Far too often it just goes from "weird" or creepy to completely outrageous. But not even enough to become comical, it's just like a joke ...

    Casual Weeb Reviews:Junji Ito Collection
    At the time of this review I have watched 3 episodes. I will revise once again after 1 season and take an objective look at the whole

    Plot
    : Since this anime is a recreation of some Junji Ito's manga I will simply compare the anime to the manga directly in terms of how closely it follows the original source material. In terms of story this anime does a fairly good job at copying the ...
