Junji Ito works anime adaptation confirmed for winter 2018.

Director and character designer is Tagashira Shinobu who recently worked on the first season of Diabolik Lovers (also notably episode director and animation director on the first adaptation of Hunter x Hunter, Fune wo Amu, storyboarded Rakugo Shinjuu, etc.)

Will I finally get an explanation on what the fuck was that hanging ballons story about? That and Army of One are the only ones I still can't understand.
>>
This is probably just quick shorts of a select few of his one shots, right?
>>
>>160946796
Why would you want to understand? Part of the horror is the inexplicable nature of it. It just comes for you, like Amigara Fault calls for you
>>
>>160946841
"Junji Ito Horror Collection" is what literally all of his volumes are called, so there's no way to predict what would get adapted.
Just going by the big promo image alone, though, there's a shitload of good picks and even the Lovesick Dead standalone. But it's also got Tomie, which I guess they could do in snippets, so it's anyone's guess.
>>
>>160946756
You forgot to mention CR is partly funding and sitting on the committee for it, so lol

natalie didn't mention it. I try to forget that they exist.
>>
>>160946876
One thing is something ambiguous and mysterious without an actual explanation of the situation and other thing is DUDE WHAT THE FUCK DID I JUST READ. I just pretend the last page of Army of One doesn't exists and the story makes perfect sense.
>>
>>160946841
Apparently there are 11 compilation volumes of his work which will be used as source material, and also 魔の断片 (ma no danpen / fragments of evil).
>>
>>160946916
Tomie not getting a separate adaptation is strange, you'd think it's popular enough to get it'w own season.

>>160946917
CR showing Netflix that they're not going down without a fight.
>>
>>160946916
Will they animate zit boy ?
>>
>>160946672
Maybe the anime adaptation can improve his endings. Those are always dogshit.
>>
>>160948033
It's not up there, but it's pretty popular I think. From what I can tell, we have, going left to right:
>My Dear Ancestors
>Tomie
>No idea. Very familiar though.
>Shuichi segments, likely gonna do his volume which is easy to do
>Motherfucking Long Dream.
>Slug Girl
>Mold
>Hanging Balloons
>Can't tell
>House of the Marionettes
>Blood Bubble Bushes
>Hallucinations (Has a few chapters and is really great)
>The Chill
>Lovesick Dead (Volume, very good)
>Earthbound? Reimi's Ghost stories?
>Fashion Model
>Smoking Club
>Flesh Colored Horror
>>
Wow. This will probably be terrible. How uneeded.

it's about time I've been waiting for this since the story about that whale with corpses inside that were still alive
>>
>>160950989
One of the best stories for me. Must be becasue it's realated to my fear of deep ocean.
>>
>>160950989
It wasn't a whale, it was a... hum... ok let's call it a whale, but yeah it was awesome, actually it was my first junji, after that I just went on a spree to read them all.

I don't think most of his works would do well in anime unless the director is insanely talented desu
>>
>>160948334
>Shuichi segments
Man, fuck that little cunt
>>
>>160946917
What's your source on that?
>>
>>160948334
Long Dream and dreamland fiction is my favorite fantasy genre, and Hanging Balloons gave me a panic attack waking up the morning after I read it

I want my doujin preferably non guro or scat or anything equivalent.

>>160953545
Can't stand him either, but reading Soichi's Beloved Pet and Cat Diary back to back is pretty fun.

>Ito stories
>making sense
Junji Ito story problems are either:
- They just end abruptly and leave the reader hanging as to what'll happen next.
- Some twist that answers one question and evokes 20 more questions.

Army of One was nowhere near incomprehensible and clearly the former. It's just stupid. Basically stories like that, Ito writes himself into a corner and then ends it with a IDUNNOLOL. So it's like, great, he revealed that the victims behind the attacks were also participating in the sewing jobs. Clearly they're just possessed. There's nothing more to talk about. What possessed the people? How much power does it have? wakarimasen lol

>>160946672
Is that the Glyceride sick fuck in the middle? I don't know if i can watch this.

I hope they'll do Town Without Streets, loved the environment in that one

It was a good comedy movie.

Like what's the downside? If it sucks you can laugh about it or pretend it never happens, if it's good then everybody wins.

I'm legit going to fucking barf

I expect tons of memes. It sucks.

Something something "normalfags" something something "muh memes".

Is there someone talented on it or is it just a cashgrab on Ito's works recently scalating popularity?

We better be getting DRRR DRRR.

DRRR already has 4 seasons.

Adaptations are good if they have interesting things to do with the originals in animation. If it's just a coloured manga with voice actor it is horse shit.

Yeah!

I hope they adapt The Long Dream. That's my favourite.
>>
>>160958007
This.
Whether these adaptations turn out good or not, they're might still be enjoyable regardless.
Ito has always been as funny as he has managed to be disturbing. If the anime doesn't do a good job on the horror aspect it'll only accentuate the more-or-less unintentional humor that is present in the majority of his work.

Ahh the Gashunk lived.

Also, Benny Hill theme while reading Remina with /a/, good ol' time.

>>160963533
Or Yakety Sax.

>>160963587
That's the Benny Hill theme you dumb cunt
>>
>>160963445
This was quite an amusing story. Big chin guy is the best character.
>>
>>160946672
How will they fuck it up?
>>
>>160954228
Except that most of his works have some kind of lesson/moral of the story thing going on, or sometimes things aren't explained but make sense regardless, Army of One had a clear point and even with the inexplicable it made sense, but that last page just made 0 sense and was completely unfitting with the theme of the story, I guess that you can just imagine there was some sort of massive hypnosis going on but that would suck, so I rather pretend the last page doesn't exist and the story is perfect.

the one with the person in the couch was pretty disturbing

I don't think Ito's stories would translate well into animation though

The same way they fucked up the Gyo anime.

>complete lack of subtlety, taking itself too seriously
>unnecessary sexualization of characters and horror scenarios

that one was an adaptation of another authors story
coincidentally he wrote panorama island too, which had a really good manga adaptation by another mangaka

Nothing wrong with this one

There's a time and a place for tentacle rape and bikini-clad girls running from monsters. And it's not Junji Ito. You have a million other series to jack off to, let me have this one.

well Gyo's a bad example because whoever worked on it decided to change who the MC is
