    Tomie is a lovecraftian monstrosity trapped in the body of a stunningly beautiful girl. She can seduce nearly any man with nothing but a single glance, driving them mad with lust and envy until eventually pushing them to commit brutal murders. Though strangely enough, the victim of the murders are almost always Tomie herself. Countless men and women have fallen victim to Tomie's supernatural charms and Tomie herself has fallen victim to hundreds of atrocities as a result, but soon the world begi Tomie is a lovecraftian monstrosity trapped in the body of a stunningly beautiful girl. She can seduce nearly any man with nothing but a single glance, driving them mad with lust and envy until eventually pushing them to commit brutal murders. Though strangely enough, the victim of the murders are almost always Tomie herself. Countless men and women have fallen victim to Tomie's supernatural charms and Tomie herself has fallen victim to hundreds of atrocities as a result, but soon the world begins to realize that no matter how many times they kill Tomie, the world will never be free of her cruelty. She keeps coming back. The story begins with Tomie seducing her teacher and a group of male students. They go insane with rage and lust, brutally dismembering her corpse, scattering her by a river all while fighting amongst each other like a flock of savages. Tomie’s streak of seducing victims with her demonic charm finally comes to an end, until she shows up to school the very next day to continue driving everyone insane. It turns out that chopping up Tomie didn’t kill her, it only allowed her to divide, spread and conquer like an army of humanoid cancer cells. The book is a series of stand-alone stories revolving around the many replicas of Tomie. Each story gives us a way of seeing different sides of the same monstrous girl. She appears as the daughter of a mourning elderly couple, the narcissistic model for a wannabe millionaire painter, a perverted child seducer, a medical experiment gone wrong, we see many faces of Tomie and we’re never truly certain on which face is the real her. She’s like every mythological seductress all rolled into one. She’s a siren, succubus, lamia, Lilith, medusa and every other deadly seductress you can possibly think of. On top of this there’s Ito’s signature grotesque body horror to go along with each version of the wicked maiden. Tomie is an enigma. If you slice her open, she heals right back up. If you cut her into a hundred pieces, each piece will regenerate and take on its own form and personality. At first we see her as a victim because of how brutally she's murdered by a teacher and a group of students, but as we come to learn more about her, it's almost as if she wants to be killed over and over. She's intentionally cruel, manipulative and psychotic, playing the damsel in distress one moment and happily destroying the lives of innocent people the next. She intentionally pushes people beyond their limits, taking a sick pleasure in the chaos she creates as the world goes mad with lust over her beauty. And since she keeps coming back, there's no limits or consequences to the amount of chaos she can conjure up. It's a very interesting take on lovecraftian horror, interweaving folklore from mythological creatures scattered throughout history wrapped up in the body of a seemingly innocent beautiful girl. Tomie is the first manga Junji Ito ever published, so its age does show a bit at times, especially near the beginning of the story. It was also published over a very long period of time, there’s a massive difference between the first few chapters and the later chapters. If you’re not too impressed with the beginning, the art, quality and storytelling improve significantly over time, so it’s still great for a first published work and gives you a taste of the weirdness and brutality Ito is capable of. I would recommend Uzumaki first if you’re new to Ito, but Tomie is still definitely worth checking out.

    Menudo WTF de historia. No obstante, me ha parecido una historia inquietante. Voy a esperar unos días para dejarla reposar en mi mente antes de volver a leer algo de Junji Ito, porque agüíta. Me ha dejado con un mal cuerpo importante.

    I've been dying to read this series for so long! The story is amazing and creepy! The art is also good. I must say that Junji Ito is such a great manga artist and I certainly can't wait to read and get obsessed on all of his works!

    Tomie is a beautiful girl, so beautiful that she can make any guy fall madly in love with her. Until this love becomes too much, and all they can do is killing her. But can they really kill her? In this complete collection, we get all the short stories that Junji Ito wrote about Tomie. In each of them she will get killed and then come back to life in the creepiest ways to lead more people to insanity. The reason why this manga is so brilliant it's because even though the scheme might seems repeti Tomie is a beautiful girl, so beautiful that she can make any guy fall madly in love with her.

The reason why this manga is so brilliant it's because even though the scheme might seems repetitive, each story is actually unique and we never know what Tomie and the people she's tormenting will do. More we read though those horrifying stories, better it gets, and we slowly learn more and more about Tomie and her strange powers. I strongly recommend this to anyone who likes real good psychological horror, even if you're not a fan of manga as such. This is just a manga by it's shape, and in a way it needs to be, because Ito's drawings are perfectly fit to make you visualize the terrible nightmare that Tomie embodies.
