A man is murdered in Egypt
One of the stories in this graphic novel is about Tomie. She used her power to prey on your insecurities and ran with it to terrify you further. It was apparent that the stories would get progressively more grotesque by highlighting the worst parts of the human experience.I loved Tomie by Ito. This is a reason he’s the king of horror manga.Just watch out for Tomie, she’ll chew you up and spit you out like old gum.Ito's art steadily improved from one chapter to the next. The first and the last chapter are very different in quality.The use of violence by Tomie, the story's incarnation of desire and lust, is what leads to her reproduction.
These single stories explore different aspects of Tomie, who is an anti-heroine.I wish there was more expansion of the story, but I hope Ito could provide some insight into what Tomie is and her origin in the future.
There are many historical figures known as an enchantresses, with Tomie being one of them. As someone who likes horror and gruesome things, I can’t get enough of Tomie, even though she doesn’t exist on this plane. I am lucky because it would be hard to shake off Tomie, since there is a large number of Junji animé and films featuring her.
Tomie, the girl with a hypnotic voice that can make you fall in love with her and get you obsessed to the point of murder.
The volume contains all twenty chapters of Junji Ito's surreal horror comic. Most of the stories are self-contained, but they have connections to one another, including the multi-part finale. While Tomie's modus operandi is generally the same, it is remarkable how diverse each story is. Not all Tomies are exactly the same.
Tomie is everywhere. There might be one nearby right now in your town, school or office.
What people in your family do to serve
In the first part of this book, the girl Tomie, who is too beautiful and cares only about herself. She had an affair with her teacher and because of this and being beautiful, they dismembered her while on a field trip.
What we can do
The rest of the book discusses how Tomie is reborn, and which attempts at enforcing punishment for her are ineffective. Strange things end up happening to the women who try to put a stop to Tomie.
There are forty-something stories about Tomie and all of them follow the same basic premise: Tomie will be destroyed and then arise to destroy other things. Usually, this destruction occurs because a man falls in love with her and so tries to keep her from being possessed by others.
The story is compelling in that it goes beyond the destruction of Tomie as we witness different parts of her: she is not only punished, but rather punisher. The eye is drawn to the eternal return of this essence--Tomie being petty, vain, calculating and manipulative.
I wish I had known that it was a collection of short stories rather than a graphic novel. I found myself finishing the story too quickly too eagerly anticipating the conclusion, when nothing more happens.
If you enjoy horror, this is a fun book to read. It might also be better if you spread out the reading over a number of days, in order to create a more rich experience.
Tomie is a mysterious girl with a birthmark. She has a voice that can make you do anything, including falling madly in love and murdering.
But Tomie wants to live.
Junji Ito's 20 story horror manga is collected in one volume. Most of the stories are self-contained, but there are some connections to others including the multi-part finale. Even though Tomie's M.O. is the same in every story, by shifting perspectives and timelines, new perspectives can be experienced with each one.
There might be one in your town, your school. Tomie is legion.
A guide to family history
So the first part of this book is . . . I don't know, kinda flatly woman-hating, I guess: there's this crazy beautiful thin-long-limbed big-eyed tiny-skirted anime-dream teen, Tomie, who, because she is too beautiful and too selfish (i.e., she doesn't care about other people's feelings), is murdered and dismembered by her married teacher with whom she has been having an affair and jealous classmates while on a field trip.
Social Media Addiction is Really Bad
I don’t know what the book is about, but Ito does some interesting things with its trope.
Tomie is a mysterious figure who appears in many Japanese horror stories. One of her defining characteristics is her capacity for destruction, usually enacted by a man in love with her.
Tomie doesn't punish herself, she inflicts terrible things on her victims. What women in horror movies are really afraid of is someone like Tomie. They want to be able to laugh at an abuser, so they don’t care if they stay or leave; this fear causes the fear that men will find out and murder them.
The only thing that I don’t like about this book is that it is a collection of shorts and not one true novel. The ending was fast for me because I wanted to know how the story would end, but it didn’t end how I wanted it to because it wasn’t a novel.
If you like horror stories, you will love this piece. I would recommend spacing out these stories, as well as using a variety of different pieces to provide a level of richness and depth missing from just one story at a time.
