This series disturbed me like no other, but god did I ever love it.

Am I weary of spirals now? Maybe?

Am I weary of Snails now? Mhmm. I might be.

Did I want my kids to have a happy ending? Man, I really did...even though I knew it was impossible given the circumstances of the series.

Overall, I think this was one of my favourite reads of the last few books I've read. The story was engaging and I really grew to love Kirie and Shuichi to the point where I dreading reading the end because I knew it wasn't going to end well for them. The mystery behind the spiral curse never felt repetitive or boring because each story added more intrigue to the twisted and deranged nature of this curse and its effects it had on the citizens of the town. I don't think i'll ever get the image of Shuichi's dad in that container out of my head....ever.

Mr. Ito's art is absolutely gorgeous in the weirdest way that I was compelled, but at times I also felt sick looking at it (IM LOOKING AT YOU SNAIL PEOPLE) and I think that's a sign of a great horror artist and story teller. The ending sequence was heart breaking for Kirie and Shuichi when they realized that no matter how hard they fight they weren't going to escape this curse that has been placed on them and that their fate was always sealed no matter what they did.

I also have to mention my love for the art sequences that lead to the eye of the spiral - simply stunning. Its incredible how Mr. Ito was able to incorporate so many different spiral designs into one scene. Ingenious.

If you love horror stories with fantastic art that will leave your stomach feeling slightly queasy then this story is for you! ( )

I will never look at escargot the same EVER again!! Yerg!


That said, I do think Shuichi is a cutie... at least before the start of his mental breakdown. Considering what's happened to him throughout the series, it's no real surprise the grasp he had on his sanity started slipping.

Also, I'm surprised Kirie didn't have MASSIVE nightmares after all she'd witnessed! The incident at the hospital? Jack-In-The-Box?!?!? O_o ( )

Re-read:

I've changed my mind. I don't mind about the end or the twists. The huge crazy was still cool but slightly less impactful this time.

I'm just reading it for the phi. :)


Original Review:

I'm of two minds on this volume. The truly horrific increase was awesome, and I loved how utterly fucked the whole town was.

And then, I also really enjoyed the last issue. These are two different likes. I have to separate them for my own enjoyment.

I would have been perfectly happy with it ending on number 19. It was dark, crazy, and had that last little lilt of joy in the very last frame. So sweet in an utterly horrific way.

And then number 20 comes around and turns it all into a dream sequence? For Shame! No. No.

Well, that's all fine and dandy in the big view of things... but what really chaps my hide is that number 20 was actually awesome all by itself! It spoke to me on a whole new level and freaked me out all over again. I want to make it an alternate reality special. That would be very nice.

Alas.

Still, my enjoyment of all this wacked-out horror extravaganza is not lessened. Not much, anyway. It was CRAAAAZZZZYYYYYY good.

:)

Gotta pick up more of Junji Ito asap. :) ( )
