Uzumaki (Adult Swim) – Trailer Talk

While Crunchyroll and Netflix have released various animated series’ based on Junji Ito’s work, Adult Swim’s latest adaptation will see one of his most famous works get a full singular adaptation. 

From the Japanese horror visionary Junji Ito, ‘Uzumaki’ tells the story of the residents of the fictional town Kurouzu-cho as it becomes plagued by a supernatural curse involving spirals. 



What makes this stand out from Ito’s previous adaptations is the way in which it’s been portrayed. While the previous shows were in colour, ‘Uzumaki’ is styled in the exact same way as its source material. The black and white manga style is not only impressive in how accurate it looks to the manga, but it also makes the imagery just as disturbing as the manga it’s adapting. The sound design is also terrifying; Junji Ito’s work can sometimes be lost in translation when adapting it to the small screen, so to see an accurate representation of the source material is extremely impressive.

‘Uzumaki’ not only looks terrifying, but it looks to be an extremely accurate adaptation due to the way it’s been drawn and styled. It looks like the images have been lifted off the manga pages and placed straight onto the screen and it looks gorgeous. Being a huge fan of Junji Ito’s work, I am really looking forward to this, and have hope that this will be just as creepy as the source material.
