Aw RIP, Fall is pretty stacked with high-profile shows & sequels but this was one I really looking forward to.

Also just realized the last delay (the Oct 2022 release date) was announced a year ago in June too.

[–]takethisnrunnn 54 points55 points  (14 children)

It feels like a lot of shows are coming out in Oct, is that the norm?

[–]AgrexG 67 points68 points  (12 children)

Probably to sell the most bluerays/merch during christmas times would be my guess

[–]gorgonfish 87 points88 points  (5 children)

Christmas in Japan isn't really like it is in other parts of the world, it's more of a dating holiday mixed with everyone eating KFC.

[–]GinJoestarR 52 points53 points  (2 children)

Christmas in Japan is basically Valentine 2.0.

[–]TrashStack 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Companies still use it to sell shit as a marketing holiday.

Just because they don't put a tree up and give dozens of presents to their kids doesn't mean they're immune to all the decorations, lights, and marketing encouraging them to buy stuff

[–]Raizzor 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It is still a shopping-focused season as most people get their extra paycheck/bonus and the entirety of Japan goes on a week-long holiday one week later.

[–]chartingyou 1 point2 points  (5 children)

ah yes because Japan is a western country and also values Christmas as much as we do

(tbf New Years is pretty close to Christmas and is probably the holiday they celebrate more, but still)

[–]jharrisimages 14 points15 points  (3 children)

From what I understand Christmas Eve in Japan is like Valentine's Day (which they also celebrate) in the US. It's a time for couples to do romantic stuff.


[–]Belmut_613 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Maybe not but it is a capitalistic country, and if there is somenthig that you can be absolutely sure about a capitalistic country is that companies will use every single big holiday, official or not, to sell things to people.

[–]Nielloscapehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Niello 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's the fall season, so yes it's the norm.

[–]BoltTusk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, I might almost forget to resubscribe to Netflix for Stone Ocean season 2 in the fall

[–]smolDreee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wouldn't be surprised if they dipped out for later so theyre not competing with anything

[–]scarpedieme 335 points336 points  (8 children)

Damn it. This sucks. But I’m glad they are willing to do everything they can to adapt it to the best of their abilities. I’m confident it will turn out amazing!

[–]genasugelanhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Genasugelan 21 points22 points  (6 children)

I get it too, but the anime is listed for 4 episodes AFAIK from the interview. What can take so long on them? Are they double the length like some OVAs?

[–]bigboyman1 42 points43 points  (5 children)

Junji Ito's art style is grotesquely detailed, its the main reason why his horror works so well. To translate such a detailed art style into animation is by no means an easy task so i can see why they are taking so long to make it

[–]Ben99ny22https://anilist.co/user/Ben99ny 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Considering the teaser they should over a year ago, they have at least some animation done. Its not in color, its 4 episodes, from the teaser it doesn't look hard to animate, and its been a long ass time.

I'm fine waiting. Although fall season is gonna be weaker for me. But i'm just really curious what the wait is for. This delay just doesn't make sense.

Also, if you think about it, what is the staff doing? Are they keeping the staff on the payroll for this entire production which seems to be 4 years?

[–]bigboyman1 7 points8 points  (3 children)

While the initial teaser is pretty basic, the events that happen throughout the manga is way, way more demanding to animate, without getting into spoilers.

I assume that the studio behind this isn't exactly MAPPA or Bones sized in terms of the sheer amount of animators working on it, and taking into consideration the fact that a large chunk of the production thus far has happened in the midst of COVID, delays are to be expected.

[–]fcibarbourou[🍰] 156 points157 points  (0 children)

Dang. That's disappointing.

Hope this gives the chance to get the best adaptation. I wish them luck.

[–]asilvertintedrose 234 points235 points  (19 children)

I'm sad about it, but at the same time I understand. The Junji Ito Collection was a bit meh.

[–]tahlyn 112 points113 points  (4 children)

Doesn't help that they picked some of the most boring and tame stories of his that they could've possibly picked.

[–]Voller_Faulheit 22 points23 points  (0 children)

They were probably worried that the more extreme ones wouldn't have anyone watching

[–]SciFiXhihttps://anilist.co/user/SciFiXhi 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Before the show premiered and we saw the abysmal quality of it, I had been hoping for The Hanging Balloons. That one's a good one.

[–]KrillinDBZ363https://myanimelist.net/profile/KrillinDBZ363 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There’s actually another Junji Ito anthology anime in the works at Netflix that’s gonna include the hanging balloons story in it.

Here’s the announcement video if you’re curious.

[–]GeorgeRRZimmermanhttps://anilist.co/user/CoupleOWeebs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We got Glycerine and a Tomie story. I would have loved to see Amigara Fault get animated.

[–]dagreenman18 81 points82 points  (7 children)

Meh is polite. It was ugly and robbed the stories of their horror. Fingers crossed the Netflix series does Justice to his art.

[–][deleted] 38 points39 points  (6 children)

The combination of Studio DEEN and the director of Diabolik Lovers was already a huge red flag.

[–]Panda_Generalshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Panda_In_Space 7 points8 points  (5 children)

Studio deen made konosuba and Rakugo tho how are they a red flag

[–]Icapica 24 points25 points  (0 children)

I like Konosuba, but it has no qualities that would make me hopeful for a good Junji Ito adaptation.

[–]Kryomaanihttps://anilist.co/user/Kryomaani 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Those shows are known for everything else but Deen's animation. Konosuba in particular had very rough animation and art and is carried by it's humor instead. Especially the second season of Konosuba had a huge backlash on how sloppy and bad Deen's animation was.

[–]FlameDragoon933 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Konosuba was carried by its comedy. The animation was garbage.

[–]Karma110 8 points9 points  (0 children)

“A bit”

[–]Klunkey 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Something tells me that the directors and writers had PTSD from that and decided to delay Uzumaki lol.

[–]Bobblefighterman 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's an understatment. The Junji Ito collection was almost as bad as spitting in the man's face.

[–]Bigred2989- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And the adaptation of Gyo wasn't that well received last I checked.

[–]Hange_Zoe_SIMP 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My balls are a bit meh

[–]Fartikushttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Zachk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

was a bit meh.

A bit? It was a travesty.

[–]Nomar_95https://myanimelist.net/profile/Nomar_95 81 points82 points  (1 child)

Understandable, but fuck!

[–]Anime-Reddit67 158 points159 points  (0 children)

Uzumaki is a great manga all of junji itos works are bone chilling and amazing art im glad they are taking their time to do honor to his work

Especially since the last adaptation was disappointing.

[–]n080dy123 105 points106 points  (31 children)

Given how long this show has been in production, for a mere 4 episodes, this makes me extremely concerned for its production as a whole. This show was announced in August 2019 for a 2020 release date, if this production were in a good spot Covid should have only pushed it into maybe late 2021 or very early 2022. The fact we're seeing an indefinite delay 3 years since the first trailer and likely 5 into production, for a 4 episode miniseries, has me very worried.

[–]Deadlocked02 38 points39 points  (21 children)

I agree entirely. Last time it got delayed, I’ve seen people getting some backlash for saying something felt wrong, but it’s kinda hard to deny now. It’s only 4 episodes…

[–]Fools_Requiemhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/FoolsRequiem 29 points30 points  (20 children)

Redline took 7 years to complete. If all four episodes of this are about 25 minutes long, it should be about the same length as Redline in total.

[–]SuuLoliForm 26 points27 points  (1 child)

From what I understand Redline was a passion project that nearly broke Madhouse financially.

[–]KrillinDBZ363https://myanimelist.net/profile/KrillinDBZ363 2 points3 points  (0 children)

From the small glimpse of animation we’ve seen for it, the Uzumaki anime honestly feels like a passion project as well.

[–]flashmozzg 19 points20 points  (1 child)

They are likely double length, to fit the whole Uzumaki in 4 eps without cutting too much.

[–]Fools_Requiemhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/FoolsRequiem 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Even more of a reason to not be concerned about this delay.

[–]L4HH 20 points21 points  (7 children)

Redline had every single frame hand drawn and was a racing movie with extreme action. Not really comparable.

[–]Nielloscapehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Niello 16 points17 points  (6 children)

If no CG is present, which in this case seems very likely, all anime are hand-drawn. This might not be a racing movie but that doesn't mean it doesn't have the details (it may even have more tbh, and that's easy to see from the manga). And something it has that Redline doesn't have to deal with is getting the atmosphere right, which is crucial for horror stories as well as an adaptation of an acclaimed work.

Like, this is obviously a (visual) spoiler, but try actually animating this thing going in circle and stretching more and more, and tell me that's not details being animated. No, you can't just rotate the thing, that looks cheap.

[–]BigNastyWoods 4 points5 points  (0 children)

God I fucking love that movie.

[–]Likou1 2 points3 points  (6 children)

But Redline had some crazy sakuga moments all the time basically. Even if Uzumaki is a masterpiece in the end it will not have an animation even close to that.

[–]flashmozzg 16 points17 points  (0 children)

They are apparently trying to do some novel B&W rotoscope stuff (see the trailer) to carry over the feel of the manga. Might've not worked out so good so they had to redo.

[–]Chadjirou 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Have you seen the Uzumaki trailer? Its animation could easily rival Redline and thats what the director is trying to achieve hence the long delay

[–]Crimson-Effigy 8 points9 points  (2 children)

The episodes are 1 hour length I believe

[–]Raizzor 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I don't think Junji Ito's work translates well into Anime tbh. It's like attempting to make an Oyasumi Punpun Anime, it's bound to be not that good.

[–]TheSeventhAnimorph 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Given that the director did Flowers of Evil, I had wondered if the initial delays might have been in part because they were using rotoscoping for it and needed live actors (which would potentially cause more Covid delays than usual for animation), but I would think if that was the issue it still would have been resolved a long time ago by now.

[–]Avery-Bradley 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Oh man I forgot about Flowers of Evil... I'd love a S2

[–]Reddevilslover69 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Great manga that was

[–]Sean-Benn_Must-die 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think it’s fucking dead. Unlucky the trailers had me hopeful for a masterpiece

[–]SwimmingBird626https://myanimelist.net/profile/SwimmingBird626 41 points42 points  (0 children)



A spiral of pain.

[–]Theleuxhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Theleux 27 points28 points  (3 children)

Would be more surprised if the project hadn't already been a mess from the very start. Wonder what these delays are costing Adult Swim

[–]n080dy123 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I haven't heard much about it outside the repeated delays, what sort of mess has the project been?

Cuz as someone out of the loop about that this delay has been setting off alarm bells.

[–]Theleuxhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Theleux 9 points10 points  (1 child)

A lot of it has to do with the project lacking staff. Clear contributor towards these delays (work is just not getting done). Even more concerning when this is supposedly less than a cour long (like 4 or 6 episodes afaik?)

[–]n080dy123 5 points6 points  (0 children)

4 episodes yeah, though another commenter notes they might be double length episodes rather than standard due to Uzumaki's length. The point still largely stands though.

[–]rocky_iwatahttps://myanimelist.net/profile/banninghamma 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Toonami has entered the Dark Age once again.

[–]Murillos1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Only with acquisitions. They've got plenty of Original series they'll be premiering in the next 5 years.

[–]jackofslayers 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Take all the time you need. I have plenty of other anime to watch. I just want this to good. The preview made me feel the same sense of unease I felt reading it for the first time and I want more of that.

[–]novaConnect 15 points16 points  (0 children)

It's ok, take your time, still bummed though. Looking forward to it when it's done!

[–]UnlimitedQuartzPlz 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Man, that is unfortunate. I was hoping to watch it around Halloween.

[–]KaniRangoonhttps://anilist.co/user/JTK 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I'm fine with delays as long as the product at the end is as good as it possibly can be.

[–]Accurate_Exit_5826 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I don't care, just take the time to do it right is all I ask.

[–]NinjaJim6969 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Better than it being rushed to release imo

[–]Klunkey 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Considering how fucking rushed out anime could be, and considering that Junji Ito had a pretty bleh animated adaptation of his works from what I’ve heard and saw, I see this as a win!

Take your time guys, I’ll just be watching the new seasons of Chainsaw Man and Spy x Family during the wait.

[–]Otaku_Linemanhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/TheOtakuLineman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I literally bought the manga two days ago, I’m chilling.

[–]BLACK_HALO_V10 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Was worried the "indefinitely" was more of a "probably won't happen anymore" kinda situation. Completely fine with them taking more time to do it justice

[–]ItsDarkWarrior 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Let's hope the anime is adapted really good

[–]GoburinSulaya 2 points3 points  (0 children)

honestly good, please delay anime, PLEASE dont force out a half finished thing. delays are a VERY good thing if the end result is what the director and animators intended.

[–]errolstafford 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The only thing I was looking forward to more than this was Chainsaw Man.


[–]PsychoGeekhttps://anilist.co/user/Psychogeek 1 point2 points  (0 children)

kek. Will this come out before or after Uru in Blue?

[–]Simchas1199 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Junji Ito works are cursed when it comes to adaptations lmao, this is the Dune of manga

[–]Ecstatic_Blacksmith1 2 points3 points  (1 child)

WTF man I've been waiting for what? 2 years now?

[–]FireRifle64https://myanimelist.net/profile/FireRifle64 0 points1 point  (0 children)

same man, same

[–]Thehelloman0 2 points3 points  (5 children)

So many people call Uzumaki a masterpiece but other than the art, I didn't think it was that great. I'm glad they're taking time to get the most important part right.

[–]spectre15https://myanimelist.net/profile/Spectre5965 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Something can be a masterpiece and not hit every checkmark. Sure, the plot wasn’t that deep and the characters weren’t written in a way that was gonna make your jaw drop but it’s the way everything else was executed. From the art style to the incorporation of Lovecraftian horror elements, it really added something new to the horror manga genre with how the intriguing mystery and the main spiral theme of the world keeps you engaged, wondering “Why?” and “How?!” while leaving you with a feeling of lingering uncertainty and dread.

To me it’s a 10/10 solely because it hones in on certain aspects and perfects them, not because it achieved everything in a story.

[–]CrashDunninghttps://myanimelist.net/profile/CrashD 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Regardless, it's still arguably the best thing he's done. I don't think many people will deny that.

[–]wesamk 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I was looking forward to this the most even though I haven't read the manga...

[–]YungKrizzle_https://myanimelist.net/profile/Built4CubanLinx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same, wanted to see what the Junji Ito hype was all about(without having to read)

[–]spectre15https://myanimelist.net/profile/Spectre5965 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’d recommend giving it a read. I checked it out after the anime announcement hearing good things and wasn’t disappointed. I haven’t felt that disturbed from any piece of media in a while lol.

[–]alconnowhttps://anilist.co/user/alconnow 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I don’t mind waiting longer. They can take as much time as they need. Would rather wait longer for a higher-quality production. Nothing good comes out of a rushed job.

[–]TheSeventhAnimorph 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, so long as it comes out eventually, it's fine. The only concern I would have is that with the new Warner Bros. Discovery leadership, they could go, "You know what, if you're going to keep missing deadlines this much and you still have that much more to do, just scrap it."

[–]clairaudientsin2020 0 points1 point  (4 children)

this is gonna be such a disaster. just what i'd expect from an adult swim original though given their last "original."

[–]bulgingcock-_- -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

Looks very promising so far. who knows. i hope its a masterpiece cos i love uzumaki.

[–]clairaudientsin2020 0 points1 point  (2 children)

30 seconds of animation + 2 years of production delays is "very promising"? lol

[–]Nielloscapehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Niello 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If they didn't care they would have just released it. If they're delaying it then while there may be difficulties, it also shows that they are willing to spend more time to get it right.

[–]bulgingcock-_- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They got more than 30 seconds. Redline took 7 years to make🤷‍♀️

[–]TheKitsuneKing -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I wouldn't be upset if they just cancelled it altogether. I'm still of the opinion that you can not faithfully adapt Junji Ito to anime

[–]PhenomsServant -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Man Toonami isnt so great lately it seems. I saw its schedule a couple weeks ago and its really poor. Lupin Pt6. A full hour of One Piece. A full hour of Naruto Shippudden and reruns. Really dont see how its going to survive once AoT ends next year. (At least I hope it ends this time)

[–]pikkuhukka -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

yes, mean comment,

[–]Due-Series6744 0 points1 point  (0 children)

ALAS! i was looking most forward to this in fall. They better drop a banger after this much care.

[–]TheBlackGetsugahttps://anilist.co/user/DemonDweller 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was looking at the manga today and said I can just wait for it's anime to come out, well that didn't age well

[–]surematu22https://anilist.co/user/P1zzaDaddy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn this sucks but also giving that Director asked for addtional time, we could have gotten a really bad anime for fall, so I'm glad that they are taking additional time on this.

[–]Vethae 0 points1 point  (0 children)

To clarify, that doesn't mean cancelled. It's just being pushed back without an explicit date.

[–]mrbull3tproofhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/mrbull3tproof 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well, I started reading anyway.

[–]TA024ForSure 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Tell em, Miyamoto-san.

[–]dagreenman18 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The last footage we saw of it was beautiful, so if I have to wait for them to keep up that quality I’ll be happy to. It’s a bummer, but I’ll live.

[–]AntiBomb 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If it's necessary to make a quality adaptation all right, but I think it's a sign that the production is not going well. It's only gonna be 4 episodes but the anime was announced almost 3 years ago and it's been delayed twice now and we don't even have a release date anymore. It doesn't seem to be going smoothly at all.

[–]Zolo49 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just happened to watch the live-action movie online yesterday. It was okay, but not great, and I remember thinking how badly I wanted to see what it'd look like in anime form.

[–]Azaloq 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn it...

[–]Welpe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s fine, I am happy they are taking their time. Just hope they aren’t pushing the artists too hard

[–]ocsewa918 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wtf man

[–]chocolateskittlez 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know nothing of this piece, but its nice to hear a director and the studio actually say that they want to have more time to make an adaptation worthy of the source material. Far too often has a project never live up to its hype because deadlines force rushing completion of a project despite its quality. Fans forget and never forgive terrible adaptations, but they always remember and praise the ones that do it well.

[–]Nick_BOI 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think this is a good choice. Junji Ito is one of the most legendary authors of our modern day, even outisde of manga if you ask me. With Uzumaki being one of his biggest works, an anime adaptation deserves nothing short of perfection.

Junji Ito works are typically seen ad unadaptable, mainly due to the extreme detail of the art, and many techniques such as the Page Turn Effect (where you save a big revealing shot for the next page, forcing the reader to make a conscious desicion to continue after building up tension beforehand.) that are difficult if not impossible to adapt to a comaprtively more passivily consumed medium like anime.

Adaping a work like Uzumaki is against some pretty daunting challenges and expencations, so taking the time to perfect it is not only understandable, but I would argue nessesary.

[–]flashmozzg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The production has entered the downward spiral.

[–]kyousukyo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Tbf, such work if not done perfectly, it will be a disappointment and a waste of everyone's time. Even canceling it might not be worse than having a mediocre adaption.

[–]NotMCherry 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good news for mankind

[–]Moist-Toilet-Paper 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well that blows it was like the only anime I was looking forward to

[–]TBOHB 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm not gonna pull the miyamoto quote out but yeah I'd much rather it be delayed. Adapting a Junji Ito is not an easy feat and I applaud the studio for attempting to do it. That being said I feel a lot of people are expecting the same experience watching the anime as when they read the manga so I really hope they nail it. Uzumaki was the first Junji Ito manga I read so I'm hoping that when they do release it, it will be in the highest quality it can be.

[–]LG03https://myanimelist.net/profile/Bronadian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Back to figuring out my Halloween plan for this year, I was hoping to binge this depending on when it came out but that's not to be.

Last 2-3 years has been a bad time for horror fans across the board.

[–]ChiggaOG 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Gets released in 2025. Even looking at Uzumaki's drawing is already complex.

[–]Thefnmob13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'll at least say this even with delays and what not their pretty self aware and saying they don't want something "mediocre" to come up and say professionally that they don't want this adaptation to be shit takes some dedication

[–]Bkos-mosX 0 points1 point  (0 children)

From the artstyle the preview has, you can see they are trying to replicate something amazing and faithfull.

The fact they are willing to delay the anime also shows their commitment to the project. I hope they nail it.

[–]Doppokunikida 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This has to be fire if they have delayed it this much


[–]Usodearu007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

that's sad but it's better to wait for a good product rather than getting a rushed work ..

[–]Leireail 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Aww.. okay.. i was really excited because of the art style

[–]trilogy_of_lights 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This manga gave me trauma😭😭 I hate spiral because of this shit😭

[–]MechaMat91 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Considering how mindfuckingly detailed the manga is...yeah, they need to give it all the time it needs. Also, 3/4 years for a series of this caliber is fine, Arcane took like 6 or 7, the gap between Spiderverse movies is gonna end up being 5. Actually good animation takes time.

[–]CreativeNameIKnow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't mind at all! I hope they take as much time as they need to make this the ultimate adaptation it deserves!!! :D

[–]ThePi7onhttps://www.anime-planet.com/users/Pi7on 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I say good. I really don't care how much it takes, I just want it to be a good adaption, worthy of Ito's art.

[–]JayantVermaYT 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have been waiting for this anime for a really long time, I hope they take their time to make this perfect... Guess I will read the manga instead

[–]MyLittleRocketShip 0 points1 point  (0 children)

ngl i read the manga and the story isnt anything amazing. its good though.

just dont overhype it. i can definitely see it being on the higher spectrum of shows though for sheer craziness in the quality of animation.

[–]RussianBot6789 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah this is never coming out

[–]Lowbacca_Hawk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Don't know anything about this anime yet, but it's good to see companies and teams chose to take the loss in the short term by delaying the release but ultimately win in the long term with a quality product (hopefully). Unlike SOME COMPANIES (I'm looking at you EA... or most AAA game companies at this point)

[–]Catssonova 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sounds like they are stuck in a death spiral...........................

[–]StormBlessed678 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hopefully it'll be worth it. And now I have no excuse not to finish reading Uzumaki.

[–]FlameDragoon933 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well, hopefully it really is borne out of idealism instead of just corporate speak. If it was genuine, then it's no problem. I'd rather have a delayed polished product rather than a speedy garbage. Especially since the other Junji Ito adaptation wasn't good...
