I'm somewhat new to the manga scence. I've read a few series such as Deathnote, Shaman King, and .hack; however, I've really been attached to Junji Ito's manga ever since I found The Enigma of Amigara Fault.
They are authentical frightning without relying on cheap scares. The art is done beautifully and the story can occasionally be quite compelling as well.
I've read all of his English translations and I've been looking for more manga similar to his style.
In a perfect world, I'm looking for is Salvador Dali collaberates with Studio Ghibli to make Uzimaki. I want a contrast of beauty, horror, and surreality.
