In a recent interview with Crunchyroll, the author Junji Ito updated their fans on the progress of Uzumaki's animated adaptation. The story of the work focuses on a curse that hits the city through terrifying spirals.
The cartoonist stated that the transposition script was completed, and prior to his conclusion he himself verified that it was congenial to his vision. Nonetheless, he said that the adaptation will bring some changes compared to the paper material; some characters that in the manga are put aside rather quickly, in the series will play a more important role.
In addition, the adaptation will present an anthological structure that will deepen one oddity after another within the dismal mountain town. After several unsuccessful attempts to adapt Junji Ito's works, Uzumaki represents a positive opening.
Production I.G. will take care of its realization, and the presentation trailer released a few months ago showed a decidedly inspired staging. Specifically, the adoption of black and white restores and amplifies those dark and disturbing sensations typical of Junji Ito's style.
To combat the Coronavirus, a fan invented a mask inspired by the works of Junji Ito. Even during the pandemic period, Junji Ito did not spare himself in terrorizing his fans.
