Once I was sitting with two strangers, and there were these crayons on the table for people to draw with. One of them starting drawing these spirals. When she was finished I admitted they were SERIOUSLY creeping me out. She said she was inspired by Junji Ito. I said they reminded me of this story about a cave with mysterious holes, and each hole was meant for an individual person and if you found the hole meant for you...

Yeah, that's Junji Ito, writing stories so powerful they turn crayons into instruments of dread. HP Lovecraft would be freaked out by his work.

Are you sure one of these holes isn't calling for you? Are you...? )

Here's a story from Junji Ito. Remember to read from right to left. Also a warning for brief nudity.

That title isn't a joke. Junji Ito is having an official collaboration with Pokemon. Pokemon has created a site entitled "Kowapoke" (or "scary Pokemon") which features, among other things, Ito's take on certain Pokemon. So far only two are up, but they'll probably release more along the line.

Let's see )

In this increasingly commercialized season, let's take a moment with Junji Ito to remember the true meaning of the holidays - being together with the people we love.

Everybody join hands now, everybody join hearts now )

Merry Christmas, everybody!

I meant to post this yesterday as my big Halloween post but my schedule got in the way so...here it is. It's been posted a couple of times here before but the images are dead.

For those not familiar with this, it's probably one of Ito's most famous stories.

I wasn't planning on posting this but it was just scanlated by Ito translator 'iemonsy' so I figured I'd share it with you all.

Also this story is pretty gruesome so keep that in mind.

So just a warning: this story is gross. Really gross. Not *violent* or *gory* but it's ummm... well you'll have to see for yourself. Don't eat anything before reading it, though.

Here's another Junji Ito story just in time for the Halloween season. Remember to read from right to left. This is 1/3 of the story.

As a warning, eating disorders factor into this story.

Unlike Junji Ito's other stories, there's no supernatural horror here and it's all the more scary for it. Also a trigger warning for depictions of child abuse.
