Critical discussions have centered around Ito's use of realism and exaggerated horror to elicit moments of comedy, the manga's relationship to previous works by Ito, and how the artwork depicts the relationship between cats and their caregivers. Junji Ito's Cat Diary appeared as an intermittent serial in Kodansha's seinen manga magazine Monthly Magazine Z from 26 November 2007 [10] to 26 December 2008. This story is about cat loving, it's about becoming a cat person - a true one, believe me, and about how these little furry assholes change everything when they arrive in our lives. Ito had never considered himself a cat person before and found her first cat to have a bad vibe about him. Josiah Stoup of Otaku USA suggested that Ito's art caricatured "the intense emotions that a pet owner feels," with both the cats and J-kun alternatively being frightened by the other.

His longest work, the three-volume Uzumaki, is about a town's obsession with spirals: people become variously fascinated with, terrified of, and consumed by the countless occurrences of the spiral in nature.In "Yon is a Weird Cat," J-kun, while finishing his manga on a tight deadline one night, imagines that Yon transforms into various beings, including a slug, the supernatural snake-like creature tsuchinoko, and an elderly man. Style [ edit ] J-kun attempts to play with the cats, to no avail; his mouth becomes more horrific as he fails to capture their interest.

Son las 5 am, y tuve que contener la risa en varias ocasiones porque no sabría explicarle a mi novio que lo desperté a carcajadas porque vi una ilustración de Junji cayendo sobre el moco de su propio gato. I feel that without prior knowledge of his works, this will come off as just a bizarre little book and many won’t get the joke. Visuals that could be alarming in other works are played for comedy (for example an extended mouth with over large teeth moving towards a cat and a panel saying “I’m going to gobble you up” then the next frame showing kissing/cuddling the cat).A Textbook in Support of Feline Disaster Victims (2011), a book which was intended to raise support for cat shelters after the Great Tohoku Earthquake.
