posted on by Egan Loo
Adult Swim's Toonami block began streaming a teaser for the anime of Junji Ito's Uzumaki horror manga on Friday.
The four-episode mini-series will premiere on Toonami before Japan next year. Hiroshi Nagahama (Mushishi) is directing the mini-series at Production IG, and Colin Stetson (Hereditary) is composing the music.
The 1998-1999 manga follows the inhabitants of a town where strange occurrences related to a spiral shape began occurring one after another. Viz originally released the manga in three collected volumes from 2007-2008, and later released an omnibus edition.
The manga inspired a live-action horror film starring Eriko Hatsune and Fan Fhi in 2000.
