This week, we're celebrating a master horror: Junji Ito. In this episode, we dive into why Junji Ito matters to the horror genre, manga, and beyond. We go into a history of how he started as a mangaka, who he was inspired by, why he sees himself as an inheritor of horror and not an innovator, and of course how his journey into horror uses common fears. Plus, we do it all with booktuber, writer, and Ito fan, Cidnya!
