The author’s best known and most famous stories are listed below. They will probably be the ones adapted by Netflix in this new anime production.
Enigma of Amigara Fault
It is considered by many fans to be one of the most profound and disturbing stories of the master. The mysterious enigma surrounding Amigura’s daughter centers on a mountain full of human-sized holes “intended” for people, with a strange charm that draws people into this confined space.
Army of One
Army of One is such a brutal story that it destabilizes any mind that approaches it. The story is secondary to Hellstar Remina’s collection and sees a killer at a loss who not only takes lives, but gets to stitch people and animals together.
“Red Turtleneck” mixes the sense of the horrible making it hilarious: after a meeting with a mysterious woman, a boy tries to keep his head in its place, since the latter would like to take it off and add it to her collection.
The woman becomes furious and everything becomes macabre and disturbing again, and she will disturb the mind of anyone who is afraid of insects.
A woman finds herself walking alone on Mount Sengoku and suddenly a man appears who says he has been waiting for her and invites her to a village near her. The village turns out to be covered in hair-like volcanic glass fibers, and everything glistens with a brilliant gold.
At night, when the villagers have the habit of looking at the starry sky, countless unidentified flying objects rain down on them: the initial act of terror that is about to happen!
Den of the Sleep Demon
This story is practically a reinterpretation of the character of Freddy Krueger by the author, who even managed to make it more disturbing than the original story itself.
Den of the Sleep Demon sees a young boy tormented by an enigmatic figure trying to take control of his life. From here an eternal struggle arises.
The Secret of the Haunted Mansion
The Secret of the Haunted Mansion shows perhaps the most macabre creature Ito has ever created. In the story there is a reference to a history of the past that could suggest that some of these events develop in the same universe.
