Click here

this isn't mine but it's been getting some attention elsewhere and it seemed relevant. It's like 32 pages, many of which have almost no text.

Yea, pretty much all Junji Ito's stuff is 10/10 relevant material.

It's pretty neat

Maybe this thing IS good. My friend in Facebook sent me this link last week but I didn't bother to read it. Guess I was wrong that this is some random joke.

The first time I read this, I found it to be haunting. My friend showed it to me during one of the most desolate, heart-obliteration Summers of my life (2011).

Just finished reading it after playing Resident Evil 2 a while ago. It's pretty disturbing in a cool way but... What the sh*t is the drr drr sound in the end? XD

It's not really a scary sound if you think of it, and I've done some searching in the net about it. Seems that people are making fun of that sound in a form of meme posts. XD

BTW, look at this. Same author. More LOLs.

I wouldn't say they ARE making making fun of the sound. More like they WERE. In like 2008.

drr was a brief /x/ meme.

Amigara Fault is still one of my favorites. Sort of my ultimate fear now, thanks to mister Ito.

I thought it was an interesting story, for sure. It had an interesting premise, it was intriguing, kept me wondering what was going on exactly. But I really can't say it's scary. It's an unsettling thought to be in the holes, certainly, but that's it. Especially the ending. While unsettling, it's not scary to me because all I can think is "But... how did they live without food and water in there?"

The whole "it was a way to punish criminals in the past" idea is cool, I like that idea.

I really wish that I didn't instinctively think out a spooky story to not be scared by it. But oh well. Still a neat read. I enjoyed it.

Editing to stress that I did enjoy it, just wasn't scared so much as unsettled. Y'dig?

It's already a supernatural event, though. I mean, holes appeared in a cliff face in the exact shape of random living people. The idea that they're alive when they come out the other end, if they are at all, which was an impression I never really got, doesn't really seem like the strangest part in the slightest.

Also, going back a post up, I've always been claustrophobic, but just in the usual ways. I had never imagined sliding deep into the earth in a perfectly tight stone silhouette of myself, unable to move or see or stop myself from getting further and further away from the surface. That specific thought is enough to give me a mini panic attack if I linger on it for too long.

When I read through it, I was interpreting it as the main character's dreams were some sort of "echoes of the past". The whole "punishing prisoners" thing was correct, and it then was going on some kind of Legend of Zelda reincarnation idea where the same person is born again, later on, in an identical body.

But for me, I'unno. I can accept a rock formation from the past and reincarnation in an identical body a lot easier than I can accept the supernatural making you not need any food or water, I'm weird that way.

Although the idea of slowly starving to death in a hole scares me more. There was another thing I saw similar, where this little boy falls into a crevice that just happens to be perfectly sized to fit him, but not enough for him to move.

It's for sure tailor-made to scare people with claustrophobia in my opinion, and since I don't have that maybe that is why I wasn't as scared by it as others.

Of course the image of the thing coming out only really bothered me later on when I was eating lunch, because I kept having it pop into my head. If I see unsettling things, they usually come back to me from me thinking they're in what I'm eating. Oh, some weird skin disease in a dream? Totally my pizza crust. Oh, a distorted human body? Totally my pickle spear and turkey sandwich. So that was an unpleasant lunch thanks to this.

You sure offended my spam sandwich with lettuce and mayonnaise right now.
