Junji Ito's Best Work Yet

by

I'm a fan of Eldritch, Lovecraftian horror, so when I first heard about Remina, I was already hooked. Now that I've finally gotten to read it, I'm happy to say it does not disappoint. The living planet Remina is one of my favorite monsters in all of fiction, and for my money the best monster Ito has ever put to page, not just for its cosmic scale and destructive power, but also its silent, monolithic cruelty. If I had one complaint about the story, its that Remina the young woman the planet is named after is a bit of a flat, hollow character with little to no agency. Things just happen to/around her, and she winds up little more than a vehicle for suffering, which is a little disappointing. But that's really the only thing that detracts from an absolute masterwork of horror sci-fi. Don't miss out on Remina.

It Noticed Us

Seemingly on the sci-fi side at first, the story twists into one of Ito's most harrowing works yet with his signature art style and tone. The planet Remina is depicted as something so mysterious, frightening, and threatening. Yet you almost start to root for the planet after seeing how awful the human race can be at a time of crisis. Moments in the story are heart-wrenching to view, and I really felt for the poor girl Remina. I also liked the future setting with certain elements added so naturally. There were times where the action and movement got hard to follow, especially in the last few acts, and I did find the ending slightly dissatisfactory. Still, this was another amazing read from Junji Ito. Don't miss.

Amazing alien terror!

by

This was the very first Junji Ito story I read years ago. I was not giving it too much before trying it however it does catch you up easily. Although a combination of Extraterrestrial theme and terror might sound as not the best catch on it is definitely a nice story and does dive into the unknown of the universe and mankind submitting to their fears while going into a global rampage which makes them act in very outdated ways like believing that sacrificing people does calm a greater being. This is the story that made me realize Ito does make good stuff
