Read from right to left.




Rie later visits Yuuko in her home to see that she is in bed wearing a mask. Yuuko tells her to go away. Later...







Her parents try everything including putting salt in her mouth but nothing works. Yuuko grows weaker as she is unable to eat. Eventually her parents fill the tub with salt and bring Yuuko into it.

That's what the Junjo Ito tag is for!

Not enough! There should be mental tests, hacking requirements and injections of common sense!

It was sweet of her parents to restyle her hair afterwards, though. Cruising the backyard like a boss.

I love the logic of Junji Itoverse humans. "Our slug-tongued daughter's body imploded from hypoosmolarity. But she should be fine if we rehydrate her! though! What, call 110? Have you seen the hospitals around here? Don't fall asleep, is all we're saying."

This right here is why I love Junji Ito's work. Terrifying to hilarious, and then back, and then both.

I'd like to join you in blissful ignorance, but unfortunately I already stumbled across a TV Tropes summary of this one, so I already know what it's about.

I know saying this is kind of like pinpointing 45's most insensitive comment, but this is quite possibly Ito's most sadistic story ever.

The panel regarding Yuuko cutting off the slug tongue is really striking.
