Book volume ships on March 22

The official Twitter account for Asahi Shimbun Publications' Nemuki+ magazine announced on Wednesday that Junji Ito's Genkai Chitai (Disturbing Zone) manga ended on the same day. The magazine previously revealed in December that the manga was entering its final arc.

The manga's compiled book volume will ship on March 22.

Horror manga creator Junji Ito launched Genkai Chitai on the LINE Manga service in April 2020. The manga centers on the oddities that appear in the distortions within everyday life.

Ito's Uzumaki and Tomie manga have inspired live-action adaptations, and his GYO manga inspired an original video anime project. Viz Media has published these three manga 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 2018 Junji Ito "Collection" anime adapted some stories from the Itō Junji Kessaku-shū (Junji Ito Masterpiece Collection) and Fragments of Horror manga. Ito's Uzumaki manga is inspiring a mini-series television anime by Production I.G, which Adult Swim will release in the United States before Japan.
