My favorite story, no question! It's shorter than Uzumaki or Tomie, but still highly enjoyable! While tastes might differ and others might prefer Junji's others works, I say give this book a try as well!

Gyo opens with a young couple on vacation, and as they experience a bit of a frustrating time, arguing with one another, they are beset upon by a disgusting and frightening creature that followed them home from the ocean: a fish with strange, sharp, insect-like legs that allow it to skitter around horrifically. On top of the creepiness of the creature itself wafts a disgusting rotten smell – the smell of death. From the moment the “Walking Fish” first arrives, you’ll feel chills going up and down your spine, because Junji’s artwork is beautiful and horrifying in equal measure, and he does an amazing job of portraying a disgusting, deadly monstrosity that just screams “unnatural horror”. The single complaint that I have about Gyo is that the story did not come to any kind of logical, satisfying conclusion. Given the nature of the story this could be a personal preference kind of a situation, but while some people prefer the unknown, I myself prefer some kind of an explanation, or even an attempt at one, as to what has actually occurred. There are bits and pieces of information that attempt to explain how a single Walking Fish may have come to exist, but zero explanation as to how millions of them would have come to exist. On top of that, there are strange characters introduced to further the plot, but their presence and purposes are completely glossed over, and we are additionally shown a strange supernatural phenomenon that may be responsible for how the Walking Fish are able to walk, but that’s all we actually get. This particular version of Gyo also includes a couple of short stories tacked onto the end as a bonus. The first, The Sad Tale of the Principle Post, is a very short story that makes your mind go blank as it struggles to comprehend how the subject of the tale could have ever possibly occurred. The second, The Enigma of the Amigara Fault, might give me nightmares for the rest of my life. It’s another tale with little-to-no explanation, but given the nature of the story and the outcome for the characters involved, this is a tale in which you may actually want to know less. In particular, if you have even the slightest form of claustrophobia, this short story might send you into fits of hyperventilation just thinking about it. I actually enjoyed this one a lot more then Gyo, as I'm familair with Junji's short stories.
