Thank you to Netgalley for the ARC!

Junji Ito is always a classic! The art is an obvious standout, and the stories work really well as well. A great addition to Ito's collection of short stories.

Junji Ito is always a treat! How he designs the page, the characters, the stories, they're all so unique and individual. Each stands out on it's own. I also love how he can go back and forth between totally horrifying to totally horrifying and goofy at the same time. A true master of horror.

The over the top = automatically funny thing isn't really my style, and I kept being surprised when the stories were over because they hadn't really gone anywhere. Many of the cat drawings are great though, especially Mu going from sweet to bitey.

Are the straights OK? No, they definitely aren't. At least they have cats.

Painful to read. He lies, he runs away, he betrays, he pays for it all, people die. Spirits haunt him. Despicable people haunt him. Torturous existence. A glimpse of hope - a bucket of suffering. He gives up - it doesn't work. He finds love - it withers. He achieves solace - he loses it. Hurt. Bitterness. Unbearable addiction. Loss. Betrayal. Hopelesness.
