the bonus stories of GYO
One of the essential twisted stories or morbid jokes related to speleology as manga comic! Even by the outstanding Japanese mangakas! Master Junji Ito cursed me again as is charming me for 20+ years :-) Since I am speleologist I love holes (caves in fact :-)The situation of feeling rock all around is something very usual (and exciting) for me. Perhaps there came a day and I will find the certain hole made for me :-) Btw. Name Amigara refers to what? A nutshell? My great grandmother skilled in Japanese a bit used to call me amigara (instead od dumbhead) if i did something wrong... The thing flashed in my mind when I first time spot "amigara fault" I did a lot of them as a child :-))) The another story I think might be an old urban legend. Or even ancient traditional legend? I heard this first time when I was very young and then I stumbled upon some more alternatives...this is one of them but excellently made!

The author works Gyo like he did with Uzumaki, bringing small, horrific problems and gradually transforming them into a terrifying world issue. And he does it by picking some concept nobody could ever think into adapting in a horror story, again. I have to say that i enjoyed it, albeit getting a bit disgusted with what happened to the girl, really didn't expect that to happen. I was going to complain after realizing it's only 2 volumes but it was a good choice to end the manga there, it's something that most don't know how to do: to insert a proper ending, and considering what goes on in this story, i believe it was the only possible enjoyable ending. The art fits the theme. On a side note: the story about the holes was really awesome.
Wasn't too disappionted
Gyo was pretty good. It's not one of Ito's best, but it was still very amusing and even quite funny at times.
Also, I have to admit that the high rating that I gave this story comes (mainly) from my satisfaction towards girlfriend's dilemma in the end. Talk about being thoroughly satisfied

Ugh... want my hour back...
So... why do holes call to people? No will power it seems... You know what I do when I see a hole shaped for me? Walk away... As for the main story... I don't know why I kept reading... I guess it was for answers I never got... Questions that will remain...
It was bad... simply put...
just cause it's creative doesn't always make it "good", ya know? i enjoyed it just cause it freaked me out, but i can see how many people would be bored/disgusted by it. open your mind lol give it a try, ya never know! be prepared though - kinda gross...
Smells like fishfood.
FISH WITH LEGS!!! Genius!!!
Good story, plot and character depictions. The only thing to rant about is the ending, that's more or less a cliffhanger. But seeing the main character was always so persistant, you can assume they will eventually find the cure and save the world and so on.
A few hours of good reading when you're not eating fishfood. Warning: May cause hydrophobia.

Well, it was decent, I suppose. It wasn't all that horrorifying, and I read it simply to see if it got better. It was extremely original, though. It was kinda funny at some parts. Although, was I the only one who thought it didn't have much of a resolution?
EDIT: HA HA! I knew the art and main characters seemed familiar! He wrote/drew Uzumaki! It seems I like his work more then I thought.

i´ve expected more from this book, kind a lame story and not horrifying at all. but i´m not up for eating after read it, so maybe it effected me in someway.
man, this was so bad. i don't know how i struggled through it, maybe it was the fact that its only two volumes. i guess the story idea was ok, but after the first couple of chapters i was getting bored of it and wanted it to end. i guess the last mini story was ok, probably because it was so short, but honestly, save your time for something better.
This story has a classic feel to it. In the beginning the legged fish seems like a minor problem. (though strange) As the story progresses it gets more and more complicated. (and even weirder) I would like to see a sequel to this series. though, I'm sure that will never happen. The main character in this was cool. (such a nice person. Maybe even too perfect?) Also the second one shot at the end of the second volume was good. How does Junji Ito come up with these ideas?
