Manga launched in August 2018, begins with woman discovering mysterious golden thread

The September issue of Asahi Shinbunsha's Nemuki Plus magazine published the final chapter of Junji Ito's Travelogue of the Succubus (Muma no Kikō) manga on Saturday.

Ito launched the manga in Nemuki Plus in August 2018. The manga's first chapter, titled "Angel Hair," begins with a woman named Kyōko Byakuya coming upon a mysterious golden thread in a mountain path. She meets a mysterious man, and follows him to "Kiyokamimura," his village covered in the golden threads, where they serve as an object of worship called "Amagamisama."

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 2017 Junji Ito "Collection" 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. Ito ended the series in April 2018. Viz Media will release the manga.
