"Something is rotten in Okinawa...

The floating smell of death hangs over the island. What is it? A strange, legged fish appears on the scene... So begins Tadashi and Kaori's spiral into the horror and stench of the sea. Here is the creepiest masterpiece of horror manga ever from the creator of Uzumaki, Junji Ito. Hold your breath until all is revealed."


Gyo is a horror manga by Junji Ito.

I already read Uzumaki by him, and I by far preferred that book over this. Uzumaki was a bit scarier because the spirals were just unsettling and there were a lot of uncomfortable body horror things going on. Gyo is less scary unless you have a fear of fish with legs.

Out of everything in this manga, I found that the bonus chapter about the human shaped holes in the fault was creepiest thing about this.
