“I wish their was a film adaptation of the book Uzumaki that was done in the style of the original comic.
I agree. The film that represented it made it comedic, random, green and by the end, it didn’t even make sense!
“My love for you will stop this car!”
Mitsuru, Uzumaki Vol. 2
I’m reading Uzumaki’s page in TV Tropes and this one caught my attention the most:
Too Dumb to Live: All the named characters stay in town way past the point it’s clear they should leave. It’s mentioned that a few people bugged out when the first inexplicable deaths occurred, leaving empty houses for those remaining whose homes have been smashed.
- Kirie deserves a special mention. Maybe it was the Spirals’ hypnotizing power, but she seems to forget all the crazy shit that happens each subsequent chapter. She fails to not only heed Shuichi’s warnings every time he appears, but she writes him off each time as “acting strange lately”.
- It’s WORSE than that. In later chapters she thinks that ‘maybe this is because of the Spiral…’ but doesn’t do a thing about it!
- Consider, however, that when people were cremated in other towns had their ashes sucked into the Dragonfly pond…escaping might not have been an option. Especially considering the Year Inside, Hour Outside nature of the place in later chapters (see below).
As much as I want to dismember Kirie, she was the only one that kept this story going until the spiral is complete.
Someone asked me to post the full story so here it is.
IT WAS NICE KNOWING YOU ALL
