Junji Ito Collection Episode 6: Once Again, Possibilities Squandered

Review:

This one is going to be pretty short because I kind of enjoyed the first story presented this week and then it ended without any kind of resolution. Nothing. Just left us hanging like a window frame reaching out toward the neighbours house in point of fact. So an kind of creepiness or expectations this story may have created were pretty much abandoned as we shifted onto story two.

And story 2 is… Well, it was pretty dull. Interesting concept and dead people are creepy. The twist is kind of obvious but even then it could have worked but all and all it just didn’t do much for me.

So this series continues to be more interesting in ideas than execution and it is kind of a shame because some of these ideas could make for very interesting stories but the stories themselves just aren’t coming across.

  1. It’s like every time the story gets really interesting, they cut it off in the middle. I don’t think I could have binge watched this show without throwing something.

    1. No, this is definitely one that week to week helps because if I’d just watched two of these episodes in a row I’d walk away and not come back. But twenty minutes, once a week, is doable.

  2. Ughh…exactly. I thought it was me. That I missed something, but that ending for the first episode was just so…stupid! I really hate how this show continues setting up great stories and then wastes the opportunities every time 😢

    1. I kind of thought maybe the second story would link back in with the first one given how unresolved it was but then nothing. Really disappointed given up until the non-ending it had been quite a creepy story.

I'd love to know what you think.
