The Liminal Zone | Review
Rating - ⭐⭐1/2
"What destiny awaits them after the screaming?
After abruptly departing from a train in a small town, a couple encounters a “weeping woman”—a professional mourner—sobbing inconsolably at a funeral. Mako changes afterward—she can’t stop crying! In another tale, having decided to die together, a couple enters Aokigahara, the infamous suicide forest. What is the shocking otherworldly torrent that they discover there?"
The Liminal Zone is a horror manga by Junji Ito.
I have read a lot of Junji Ito, though I haven't really reviewed them since I was collecting the reviews for a massive reading challenge I wanted to do that I halted because all my stuff got deleted...
Moving on though, I want to like Junji Ito, I really do, but I just don't think his work is my cup of tea. There is no doubt he has a unique mind because of the stories he can create, but I don't find myself horrified by it (disgusted yes, but not horrified) nor do I enjoy the reading process.
As for the manga itself, there were four stories collected in it: Weeping Woman Way, Madonna, The Spirit Flow of Aokigahara, and Slumber. Out of the four, there was only one that I liked; slumber. The other ones I didn't care for at the least or had content I don't enjoy reading in general. Aside from that, I also found that the stories were less odd and less graphic compared to some of his other works.
