J of JAF's Tempting Tease:
Spirals appear everywhere, haunting the quaint Japanese town of Kurōzu-cho. The obsession with the spirals and paranoia spreads throughout the town like wildfire. The unsettling imagery and effects that Ito employs in the story stay with you even after putting the manga down.
The simplicity of the plot is what makes it a great horror manga, Ito has personified a mere shape. The images of how differently the characters are affected and deranged by the spirals in each chapter linger in the subconscious and deliver an eerie vibe about the town and the epidemic.
Dubbed a masterpiece of horror, I can not help but agree with this statement. I am not a big fan of manga, but Uzumaki certainly delivers with a fast pace and hypnotic drawings.
