Timed accordingly with renowned horror manga author Junji Ito’s 30th anniversary as a mangaka, an anime adaptation is currently in the works. According to Asahi Shimbun‘s Junji Ito’s Haunted House site, it is likely that the anime will be an anthology rather than based on a single work.

His most recent work to be translated in English can be found in Viz Media’s release of Dissolving Classroom and the hardcover Fragments of Horror, both of which come highly recommended. As for the anime adaptation, more info will be revealed later.
