Summary and Preview

A new serial that appeared recentlyin Comic Flapper. The first two episodes were only four pages long and were excluded from the compilation (no loss). On the whole, I think that these comics represent some of Junji Ito's weaker efforts; while the drawing is consistently good, the stories themselves seem like typical campfire ghost stories and they lack the punch and surreal existential terror that Ito's better works inspire. The best story of the compilation is probably "The Scarlet Circle", about the discovery of a strange room beneath the family home that has a strange growing red mark on one of its walls, but that story as well has an arbitrary and unsatisfying (happy) conclusion that prevents it from joining Ito's classics. It's worth noting that the comics were created as a collaboration between Junji Ito and occult researcher Nakayama Ichiro. More information about the comic can be found in this interview from Da Vinci magazine.

Consists of the following short stories:
1. The Woman Next Door
2. Sound of Grass
3. Graveman
4. The Seashore
5. Just the Two of Us
6. The Scarlet Circle

Review by fingersmaloy
Fans of the Fuan no Tane series should feel at home with this collection, as these stories are mostly relatively brief vignettes into one horrific idea or another that are not necessarily resolved in the end. I feel they carry more impact than the Fuan no Tane series though, if only for Itô's superior artistry and the presence of recurring characters. I must admit, the stories walk the thin line between disturbing and goofy with Itô's usual flair for the bizarre, and you may not find yourself frightened so much as entertained. It's amusing that Mimi and her hunky boyfriend are more or less nonchalant as they go on with their humble existences, even though in real life, experiencing any one of these stories would most certainly scar a person deeply and change his or her life forever. You can chalk it up to Mimi being a very quirky girl, which only adds to the book's charm, but you are left wondering why her boyfriend still remains so skeptical all the time, even though he must deal daily with his own personal phantom, the goatee that appears and disappears of its own random volition.
