    I really need to read Gyo.

    But Uzumaki doesn't have sharks breaking down doors as far as I know.

    Are they anything like Parasite (Parasyte?)? I read part of that and really liked it but never finished it.

    I havent read parasite. Gyo is about robot animals powered by farts. Uzumaki is about a town that becomes obsessed with spirals (Hella creepy)

    I want to read Gyo if only for The Enigma of Amigara Fault. The rest of it looks good too though.

    The enigma of Amigara Fault has next to nothing to do with Gyo's story, its just a mini-story junji ito wrote.

    There's one long comic I read about a planet trying to eat Earth. Hellstar Remina. You should read that too...it's more Lovecraftian in nature.

    Uzumaki was like the first horror manga I've read it in my life. I liked it a lot but I thought the ending was utterly disappointing too.

    The Junji Ito's work I am looking for the most at the moment is Scarecrow, which is about a girl staying in a small city where some creepy pagan festival happens every year and horrible stuff happens. Sounds like a Japanese remake of The Wicker Man.

    YES. I love Junji Ito. Actually, I found him through ED, when I found the Shark-Breaks-Down-Door meme, then I read about It's Slowly Coming This Way! which of course led to The Enigma of Amigara Fault, which I thought was freaking brilliant. Mangafox doesn't have Uzumaki or Gyo since they're licensed, but it does have some of his really good stuff, like Hellstar Remina, Yami no Koe and Shin Yami no Koe, and Mimi no Kaidan, which I highly recommend. People are stupid, though, and uploaded stuff under Ito Junji and Junji Itou so you have to check both: 1 and 2.

    One of his works that isn't on mangafox that I also highly recommend is The Lovesick Dead. It's also called Undying Love. I have it if you can't find it on google. The ending always annoyed me, but most of it is awesome, it has lots of girls cutting their own throats. Just so you know. ;)

    I actually liked the ending. I'm not sure what would have worked better, and they ended up together in the end, kind of cute. Sure, she was stupid to ignore his suggestions throughout the whole manga, and he saved her over and over, but still, I thought it was a pretty good ending. As far as Scarecrow (Kakashi, right?), is it the movie that you're looking for? The only manga I can think of by him having to do with scarecrows was the short story of the people who put scarecrows in the graves and the turn into likenesses of the deceased. I believe there was a movie with the same name with his name "attached" to it but I'm not sure if it was the same story or not.
