Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With their town devastated by titanic hurricanes, the citizens of the spiral-haunted town of Kurôzu-cho — including Shuichi, Kirie and her family — find themselves cut off from the outside world. Reporters and rescue teams cross the mountain range into Kurôzu-cho only to find themselves unable to leave. Trapped inside the cursed ruins, the desperate survivors struggle and huddle together, waiting to run into giant snails or worse. The very laws of nature are changed as the spiral sucks them in. And to fight it, or to escape, the last survivors must go to the heart of the horror to witness what may be their eventual fate...

Review:

"[T]he ending was satisfying and a brought a good close to the series....This is Japanese horror at its most unsettling, but it's also a great introduction for people who aren't quite prepared for the multi-volume Drifting Classroom series, yet want a bit more than a one-shot series might offer." A.E. Sparrow, IGN.com

Review:

"Uzumaki is the most unusual series that I have ever read. Once I picked up a volume, I found that I couldn't put it down until I had reached the last page." Manga Maniac Cafe
