cyberghostface: (Right One 2)
[personal profile] cyberghostface posting in [community profile] scans_daily

I meant to post this yesterday but here's a bonus Junji Ito story that I posted three years ago here. In my opinion it's one of the creepiest stories from him.

Remember to read from right to left.

The story opens with Mimi and her friends going on a trip to the beach.

The sound of footsteps wakes Mimi and she looks out her window.

She wakes up her boyfriend(?) Naoto and tells him what she saw but there is nothing there.

The next day, at the beach...

"When night falls, those lost to the sea rise up to the shore. I've seen it many times."

Their rest of their friends come back from surfing and one of them, Furusawa, sees the waitress and hits on her. To the rest of their friends' surprise, she takes a liking to him.

At the shore they're taking pictures of each other.

That night Furusawa decides to go to bed early but later he runs out to the sea. The rest assume that he's sleepwalking and run out to get him before he drowns.

He says the teacher is begging him to help and attempts to run into the water again. The rest of the crew thinks he's lost it and decide to take him into the car and wait until morning.

The next morning, Furusawa is missing.

As Mimi asks how could this happen, the waitress turns up and explains that a long time ago a group of preschool children got swallowed up int the waves and drowned.

Yea, that one's pretty creepy! I don't think the 'waitress was even scarier' bit worked for me, but just the photos we did see, and all that lead up to it...

Geez, one would hope the government would put up some "danger area—no swimming" signs

"--Yeah NOPE"

When will people learn that nothing good comes of trusting a mysterious, haunted-eyed beauty in a Junji Ito manga?
