I picked this up on a whim and I’m so glad I did. Having read Junji Ito’s Uzumaki and Tomie, and not having read any description of Junji Ito’s Cat Diary, I expected something in a similar vein to his usual work. While Cat Diary is no exception to Ito’s trademark hyper-detailed, beautifully unsettling illustrations, its story takes a surprising departure. All I’ll say is I ended up laughing and smiling throughout the entire read.
