Junji Ito Pens 'Wasuregatami' 1-Shot Manga in February

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

This year's third issue of Shogakukan's Big Comic Original magazine revealed on Saturday that manga creator Junji Ito will pen a one-shot manga titled "Wasuregatami" (Memento) in the magazine's next issue on February 5. The magazine describes the manga as a "married couple horror story."

Ito's Uzumaki and Tomie manga have inspired live-action adaptations, and his GYO manga inspired an OVA. Viz Media has published these three titles, as well as Ito's Fragments of Horror, Frankenstein: Junji Ito Story Collection, and Smashed: Junji Ito Story Collection in English. ComicsOne has published his Flesh Colored Horror manga, Dark Horse Comics has published his Museum of Terror manga, and Kodansha Comics has published his Junji Ito's Cat Diary: Yon & Mu manga. The Junji Ito "Collection" 2017 anime adapted some stories from the Itō Junji Kessaku-shū (Junji Ito Masterpiece Collection) and Fragments of Horror manga.

Ito most recently worked on a manga adaptation of Osamu Dazai's classic novel No Longer Human (Ningen Shikkaku) that launched in May 2017, and ended last April.
