The anime anthology series Junji Ito Collection, based on the artist's horror manga, will premiere in January in Japan.
Junji Ito's 1987 debut manga will receive the deluxe treatment this winter with the release of a hardcover omnibus edition from Viz Media.
"It actually goes back to the series I worked on before, 'Rave Master,'" Hiro Mashima explains. "In one episode, there was a scene where a group of guys are hanging out at a bar. That was fun to draw. So I wanted to draw a manga with the feel of guys hanging out at a bar."
Guillermo del Toro has revealed "Gyo" creator Juni Ito was part of the team working on the canceled "Silent Hills" video game.
