   Unique and Gross
I am pretty new to Ito's work, this is only the second one I have read. Dissolving classroom is even more grotesque than the last collection I read, and could be a good or bad thing depending on your tolerance for grossness. I wouldn 't recommend starting with this one if you’re new to Ito, but if you’re already a fan, you should like it.
   Great Art As Always...
Loved the artwork but wish there was more variety. I love Ito's works but this is not his best. Once it was worth picking up and reading through, it was still worth reading through.
   Not Ito’s best work, but enjoyable just the same.
A simple premise penetrates the pages of this book, and if you are not into the bizarre gross out gags within, you are probably not going to appreciate the book. More on the gross side than the spooky side, it is still a good read if you’re after some dark comedy.
   Ito Doing Social Commentary
While this is not one of Ito's best collections, it is very clearly a more public take on culture around biting apologies. Here stands the Tomie form of narrative, which is stories with a common antagonist that eventually comes together at the end. This is the same thing that Uzumaki and Tomie have done with Ito, both have very loose continuities, but similar characters, thematics and locations. I think this is the more effective of these loosely knit stories, while if you want a more traditional long form story, his adaptations of Frankenstein and No Longer Human are probably the safest bets. The common factor is a brother and a sister couple. I recommend this issue for those who are really looking for a more artistic Ito or someone like me who never really gets tired of his narratives and outwardly humorous stylings, even if they don 't necessarily compete with the others in his body of work.
I paid about 3 bucks for this book and for this price, how can you say no? This is pretty short, but worth reading if you like Junji Itos's stuff.
   Great Horror Manga!
I love this manga, I don 't know why people say they are disappointed with it. I have read other Junji Ito mangas and found this one great too! Maybe it is a bit too short, but the stories are crazy and I 'll reread it some time in the future.
   Nice illustrations, but disappointing
As usual, Ito's illustrations are good, but that is really the only value that this particular book holds for me. It was not afraid in any way, and the story was just... tired. I realize that we don 't read Ito's work for the story, but in this case it is particularly dry in a way that affects my enjoyment. Here and there were some good moments but not enough for me to recommend it to anyone but a completionist.
Read and purchase this thing even though you will likely end up in an hour because you can’t put it down!
   Great read!
I love Junji Ito's work and love to see more of his stuff coming from the state.
   Horror with an interesting story
In my opinion, I found this book to be interesting and I liked it to be a lot. This book is not as interesting as Uzumaki and Tomie, but is still very interesting to read. I am very sorry if this was a bad review of the book.
