    Whoa... and I thought first two volumes were crazy. This one takes crazy to a whole new level. But anyway, a great ending to a really great series. If you're into creepy and unique stories, I would definitely recommend picking up this one, and hopefully, you'll like it just as much as I did.

    Son üç günde üç kitaptan oluşan manga Uzumaki'den aldığım tadı anlatmaya kelime bulamıyorum. Ne yazık ki bitti. Benim için artık bir korku klasiği olarak yerini aldı. Bundan sonra yazar / çizer Junji Ito'yu çok yakından takip edeceğim. Korku, gizem, manga ya da bunlardan birini seviyorsanız kesinlikle kaçırmayın. :)

    In Uzumaki (spirals) a town is taken over by spirals. Spirals, you say? What is scary about that? Look at an ear, that's a spiral, nothing scary about that. Clouds spiral sometimes. Dust in the wind can spiral. Cat fur can kind of spiral. Your hair can kind of spiral. Gradually, all you and the townspeople see are spirals and you and they are driven mad by spirals. Yes, that happens, it does, in Ito's masterpiece. And with spirals! Uzumaki! It is kind of a neat trick to make an abstract image/a In Uzumaki (spirals) a town is taken over by spirals.

But it's true, it happens, and it's an amazing artistic accomplishment, because you thought it could only happen with words ala Stephen King novels or Hitchcock movies, with music and images and dialogue. But this is manga, comics horror. Mostly images. And it works. This is an amazing ending to a great manga horror series. Spirals! And a surprise ending it didn't really need to make it great, I could have done without it, but it was still great, maybe even greater because of it. The drawing is amazing, and the accumulative effect of all the spirals taking over and driving a whole town insane really works! You will see spirals everywhere, AHHHHHH!

Meeting new strangers who hope will find a way but instead infected with the spiral curse. Towards the ending, I still didn't find answers for this spiral curse. Everything turns into spiral and make my head dizzy. Let's just say the ending didn't like what I expected. Kinda frustrating.

    I'm of two minds on this volume. The truly horrific increase was awesome, and I loved how utterly fucked the whole town was. And then, I also really enjoyed the last issue. These are two different likes. I have to separate them for my own enjoyment. I would have been perfectly happy with it ending on number 19. It was dark, crazy, and had that last little lilt of joy in the very last frame. So sweet in an utterly horrific way.

It spoke to me on a whole new level and freaked me out all over again. I want to make it an alternate reality special. That would be very nice. Alas. Still, my enjoyment of all this wacked-out horror extravaganza is not lessened. Not much, anyway. It was CRAAAAZZZZYYYYYY good. :) Gotta pick up more of Junji Ito asap. :)

    Uzumaki finishes up with this final volume. While the weirdness stayed consistent, the body-horror elements took somewhat of a backseat to more action-based scenes, and the episodic way it progressed earlier now only serves the overarching storyline, which makes sense considering everything needed to get wrapped up. Unfortunately, nothing in here quite touches the two “pregnancy” chapter from volume 2, which is not to say this is bad, but that was REALLY good.

    I feel like this was the worst volume in the series. What was that ending, really? I liked that the series became less episodic and more like a coherent story in this volume--finally people seemed to be reacting like normal human beings, actually seeming to remember, "Oh yeah, everyone's dying, aren't they?" The return of snail people grates at me because, come on guys, nobody mentioned a snail epidemic since that chapter! If people were still turning into snails, people would hear about it!

With that said, I liked the new addition of Chie a lot. (view spoiler)[Sadly, that was shortlived. Everyone spontaneously disappeared from inside the row houses. No explanation? Okay. (hide spoiler)] Even though I did like that a plot had appeared, the chapters did somewhat drag. I note that the horror element almost completely disappears in this volume. I really, really can't handle the ending though. I'll summarise before I go into spoiler tags: I accepted the inevitable and it seemed to be going where I wanted it to... and then on the very last page (of chapter nineteen, anyway) I was suddenly left to blink and say, "Wait, what?!" (view spoiler)[Maybe I'm just really dumb, but I don't understand... is time only frozen in the centre of the spiral? Is their spiral curse ending and the next beginning? This reeks of paradox and my brain can't handle it. I loved the scene with Kirie and Shuichi, it would have been perfect if it had just ended there, with everyone surrendering to the spiral... but nope, now I'm left with a sour taste in my mouth. (hide spoiler)] I briefly mentioned this in my tags, but I loved the development of Kirie and Shuichi here. It was the first time their relationship showed any sign of depth, and I love that. In a way, it was fitting that they only briefly showed that they were close--any sappiness beforehand would have ruined the moment when it came, I think. Overall, an alright series, with some disturbing moments... I would love the ending to be less cryptic and for the characters to respond more realistically and with more depth though.

    Ok this one was equally icky and creepy, and I think sometimes that Japanese writers get to the most twisted ideas in the world of horror. So when finishing some creepy story you can be sure that somewhere behind the scene there's this Japanese guy giggling like mad.

The reason I'm making movie comparisons here is not only because, of course, this is a manga - with the familiar cinematic pacing and still-frame shot panels - but also because, though episodic and segmented into installments, Ito's work "feels" like a movie. That is to say, it's simply too visceral an experience to think of it in terms of a written work, and though images from this book will linger in your mind long after you've put it down as they would with any horror novel, you're very likely to experience them firsthand, uniquely, as I did - through the peculiar lens of synthesized art and language, woven together here with such consummate grace as to have a lulling, spellbinding effect. And that, not surprisingly, amplifies the horror tenfold. The events that unfold in "Uzumaki" are, essentially, outrageous. The concept is so strange and far-fetched - a town is haunted by the spiral shape, its citizens driven mad by the aching beauty of the pattern - that one would expect that in having to consciously suspend disbelief, the element of horror would be diminished. As the reader comes to discover, however, that simply isn't the case. No, despite the fantastic plot premise and seeming ridiculousness of a shape being scary, Ito manages to plow right through the reader's guard and catch him unawares. Ito has very likely set things up this way on purpose, luring the reader into a false sense of security and then proceeding to make the reader truly fear what he or she was previously scoffing at. It's this quality that draws me time and again to Ito's distinctive brand of horror: he capitalizes on the fact that, as rational human beings, we will fear what we do not understand. And in this case, the reader will not understand why the silly spiral pattern has suddenly become an aspect of palpable dread. The three volumes, when read in proper order, build quietly and escalate in horror with each subsequent release. Things in the sleepy lakeside town are unsettling. Whispers of madness and strange events abound, and throughout the first volume, these lulling moments of calm are broken only by explosive moments of violence, generally self-inflicted and always grotesque in nature. The story focuses on two high school teenagers, a young boy/girl couple. The horrific events unfold slowly around them as they desperately search for clues and a way to help the town from its descent into madness, and toward the end of the book, they come face to face with the horrors on a more personal level. The ending is absolutely terrifying, but as with all great J-Horror, it's purposefully ambiguous. Sharing that won't spoil anything - in fact, let it serve as a fair warning. Not having everything wrapped up in a perfect little ribboned box is generally a lot more disquieting, and this is no exception. Although not necessarily relevant to the book's review, I'll take a moment to touch on the 2000 film version of "Uzumaki," having already referenced the J-Horror film genre a fair amount. The film covers the first two volumes of the book faithfully, though the hospital mosquito scenes are missing. It comes as close as possible, I think, to capturing the subtlety and nuance of Ito's thickly-inked artwork, and adds a new layer of atmosphere all its own in the stuffy grays and muted greens and browns, blanketing the sky above the town with a perpetual, suffocating sheet of ash-colored clouds. There's also something unique in watching the film version of the story - a detective character actually discovers fairly early on the reasons behind the spiral's presence in the town and its maddening influence on the citizens. Without spoiling the film for those who want to watch it, I'll say that, despite this new plot development, the ending is perhaps even creepier than the book version. For the added dimension of color and haunting ambiguity, I highly recommend watching the film prior to reading the book. Nothing was lost in knowing some (not all) of the events that would occur, and I feel that my experience of Ito's work was further enriched by having viewed it prior. Anyway, by the book's third volume, the word "catastrophic" will come to mind. Without risking spoiling one of the more gruesome elements of the third installment, I'll just say that when limbs contort, minds bend in turn...and that slugs should fear one another as well as salt. For anyone who's read it, I'm sure you'll agree with me that the "crawl in and dine" scene was one of the most disturbing things I've ever heard of, let alone seen drawn. If anything I've read or seen can said to have been imprinted in memory, then for me, it's surely that nasty image and the sounds and implications of what was not shown along with it. In conclusion, I firmly believe that this is Ito's best work. His Tomie stories are iconic, Gyo was strange and shocking, and the various collected shorts for the stand-alone Museum of Terror anthology were all memorable and eerie, but it's this, with its slowly rising din and climactic cacophony, that really made a lasting impression in my mind. From a writer's standpoint - novelist, manga-ka, or any other kind - this is a flawless masterwork of horror, and should be studied for both technique and subsequent effect. The concept is inimitable, and no one has even tried. Ito's tone and pacing, both in his artwork and through his writing, is seamless and perfectly suited to the subject of the tale and the events that unfold. No event is insignificant to the whole, though finding a common thread of meaning among them is, amazingly, quite troublesome. It's the simultaneous bludgeoning of the mind and the senses in reading "Uzumaki" that makes it work, makes it linger - makes it unforgettable.

    İlk iki cildi sevmeme rağmen, üçüncü cildi de elimdeyken bitireyim dedim. Ama demez olsaymışım. Seriyi peş peşe okuduğum için olsa gerek, başım dönmeye ve midem bulanmaya başladı. Her çizimde sarmal yapılar görmekten bıktım. Konu desem hâlâ güçsüz ve altyapısız. Sarmal fikri hoş ama olaylar hep yarım ve eksik. Maalesef bu seri olmamış....

    This connects much plot points from the previous one. I found it especially amazing the way this deals with the situation of a cursed eutrophication of humanity and how the accursed ones were enjoying all those absurdities. This articulation has got no light at the end of the tunnel.

    It's actually been nearly 18 months since I read volume two.

Which isn't to say that it's neither gripping or fascinating; just be warned that this is a work of the surreal supernatural as opposed to a drama with a narrative push; there's no comfort or solace within these pages, yet like the spiral you're compelled to keep going and keep going, to see this thing out to the bitter end. This is an amazing manga. This is a horrible manga. This manga will probably cause your toes to curl and will mercilessly leave you to lie awake for hours contemplating the bizarre, grotesque imagery contained within. This manga makes me want to read more horror manga - I doubt there's too much that's as good, though.

    Highly satisfying conclusion to the saga. I was less keen on all the whirlwind stuff in this volume and the end of the second, which is why I rate them slightly lower than the genius perfection of the first volume, but it all came together at the end, and I found the final few chapters gripping.

Here, in the closing as everywhere else, Ito utilises the techniques of great horror as stipulated by Todorov's essay on "The Fantastic", and Freud's "The Uncanny". Todorov pointed out the potential in the idea of uncertainty for creating fear and wonder; Freud showed that the greatest fear can be found when the familiar becomes unfamiliar. So, after such comforting things as friends, neighbours, houses, children - even the plants of the Earth - fall into the ultimate symbol of the uncanny, the ever-enigmatic spiral, they become representations of despair, of the depressive point of view seeing everything in life being doomed to fall into a cycle without end, a cycle of death and cruelty and oppression that curls inside its own centre, forever. So to that ending - where the Spirals have no meaning except meaninglessness itself. Yet Ito's tender side is expressed as well - the curse is not ended until the finale, where two people come together and cling to each other in their despair. Which has a sort of chilling charm. Anyway. This ought to be read by more people interested in horror that pushes boundaries. If you're reading this, find a copy of "Uzumaki", and pass it around...

    See reviews for vols. 1 and 2 and also: I can't imagine this ending any differently or any better. Being relatively new to Japanese horror, I find the differences between Japanese and American horror fascinating. American horror is about one man or one man and his friends battling alone against the forces of evil and Japanese horror seems to be more about coping in the face of powers that are overwhelmingly greater than any of the individuals involved.

Evil is never vanquished; it is escaped or distracted temporarily to give humans a break.
