This year's 14th issue of Shogakukan's Big Comic Spirits magazine is announcing on Monday that an anime adaptation of Junji Ito's Gyo horror manga has been green-lit.

In the story, strange, legged fish appear in Okinawa in southern Japan, and the creatures portend a horrific change for the animal life in the area. Tadashi and and his girlfriend Kaori find themselves trapped on an island, facing a fate worse than death.

Viz Media published the two volumes of the manga in North America. Ito also created the Tomie and Uzumaki manga, and both inspired live-action horror films.

Hopefully this will do well enough to get Ito's other works animated as well.

Quote from tactics
Just because someone's head was chopped off doesn't mean they're dead. That's just silly.

I hope they properly adapt his style to the anime! I also hope that some of his better works have a chance of being animated in addition to this in the future.
