Wow. Adaptations of Junji Ito's work. Those always go over soooooo well.

So basically Junji Ito Collection part 2? It's even adapting from some of the same stories, they did Souichi and Tomie as well

I doubt as much effort is gonna be put into it than Uzumaki (which I'm excited for based on the trailer), so my hopes are as far down as possible

The last Junji Ito adaptation of something we saw was that terrible Junji Ito Collection anime, and this new one is produced by Netflix, so I don't have any hopes for this.

Well, I for one I'm really excited about this. I really loved Junji Ito collection (I thought it was way better than a lot of fans said... but then again I pretty much think that 90+% of popular anime is utter garbage so what do I know...). Definitely going to keep a close eye on this one.

I hope they can finally make it work, given the feedback about the shortcomings of previous attempts. Hopefully this doesn't go the same route as Resident Evil, that basically is getting worse per attempt.

Uzumaki one looks fantastic at least, that's the one with real potential so far.

I hope the anime will be good, but I'm just glad Ito has gotten so much mainstream recognition in the past several years. Smile

Completely agree with you on this.
