Junji Ito Will Appear in the Uzumaki Anime

There haven’t been many updates on the Uzumaki anime adaptation since its last delay, but the latest involves creator Junji Ito himself. It turns out his involvement with the project will include voice acting. There is even a video of him in the studio recording. [Thanks, Anime News Network!]

This Uzumaki anime video begins with people on staff explaining how much people love Junji Ito’s work. Then, he heads into the recording booth. We see him start. However, we don’t get to hear him perform. The portion was beeped out and wan’t translated. Instead, it displayed a message that read, “Disclaimer: We can’t say which character he’s voicing yet.” However, some of the teasers after that involve him saying, “I usually have poor enunciation, so doing ‘this role’ was perfect.” Comments from other people suggest his voice acting part will be brief.

While the Uzumaki anime adaptation won’t for a while, there will be a new item related to the story that will appear before it. Viz Media announced Uzumaki Coloring Book. On March 15, 2022, people can pay $14.99 for an 80 page book with art from the manga to color in. There’s also a new localized Junji Ito manga. Deserter: Junji Ito Collection released in English in December 2021.

The Uzumaki anime will appear in October 2022. It will show up on Adult Swim.
