    Junji Ito writes and draws some of the scariest stuff ever, but in person he’s the most wholesome person to ever live

    You don’t write scripts? Are you serious??

    All of these videos are a testament to your storytelling abilities and charisma. It’s no wonder your popularity exploded as quickly as it has, and it doesn’t seem like it’s slowing down!

      @Boondocksion Citizen #1990 you make a good point, it makes sense

      @Boondocksion Citizen #1990 Notes aren’t the same as a script

    • JayC says:

      @Dooooo32 Yea that makes sense I completely forgot he did Sunday school that’s probably where most of his story telling talent is from any preacher can make the most boring scripture seem like an amazing story.

    • Dooooo32 says:

      It makes sense though since he’s a Sunday School teacher, many preachers or teachers have to be able to explain something well, with minimal notes so that they can speak more directly to the audience, basically what he’s doing here, just explaining his thoughts and interpretations on “No longer Human,” it’s kind of like he was preaching about it to us without trying to convert us to anything if that makes sense

    An underrated Junji Ito story (forgive me, I forget the name) concerns a man that falls asleep and lives through increasing lengths of time (from whole days to months to years) in his dreams, only to wake up and learn that barely any time has passed. The concept is so simple but so horrible to think about living through. Junji Ito’s horror hits home so well because of how inescapable a lot of it is.

    • C. C. I. says:

      Reminds me of the story of a guy who smoked Salvia and reported to have lived a complete, different life for ten years, slowly accepting that this is his life now, getting to know his friends and getting into hobbies he apparently indulged in the past of his new life, until he suddenly snaps back to reality, his „old“ life, with only minutes passed.

      its in shiver! called Long Dream (not sure if you can buy it alone but shivers great if u like his work)

    • Connor H. says:

      I feel like that man often. I don’t know if it’s a side effect of the medication I am on or a result of that medication allowing my mind to operate as it’s supposed to, but I often dream in weeks at a time. I’ll wake from another life and back to this one, and while I’ve certainly slept for a long time when this happens (12 – 18 hours) it doesn’t match up quite perfectly. But I think of that story every time, and I wonder if one day I won’t wake up.

    • Nour Riadh says:

      It reminds of the short story if you’re armed and at glenmont metro please shoot me. Same premise except it’s actually happening and not a dream

    • Miss Pia says:

      Would love to see Wendigoon make a video on Long Dream! It’s one of my favorite Junji Ito stories!

  4. JPisme14 says:

    Time to show Wendigoon Goodnight PunPun since he’s taking on such lighthearted and wholesome reading

  5. Luna Mortuus says:

    after learning that you don’t write scripts for your videos, i’m 10 times more impressed by your channel. i just love everything about it. how you’re able to remove the art and artist and simultaneously analyza and dissect both, while maintaining train of thought, and offering an application to yourself, is truly something to behold. thank you Wendigoon

    After reading NLH: Oh wow, this is extremely depressing.

    After reading about Osamu’s life: Oh. Oh, _shit._

    • Marcus Patterson says:

      @Apollyon Noctis hey NLH isn’t an autobiography technically many people call til a semi-autobiography which is the same thing, but the story is loosely based an Osamu’s life. I mean no harm by this I’m just a big fan of Osamu’s works

    • Rotneybot says:

      @Bully peter SHIVER ME TIMBERS

    • Roonicous22 says:

      Exactly what happened to Me. Read junji ito story first then read the original and then found it about osamu’s life and was in a depressed state for like a week

    • tu_nonna_emiliana says:

      @Bully peter considering the content of the video this comment is unironically funny

    When I received the book, I wanted to savor its contents, so I read even the translator’s notes. I will never forget that line “In a superb epilogue the only witness testifies, “He was an angel”, and we are suddenly made to realize the incompleteness of Yozo’s portrait of himself. In the way most men fail to see their own cruelty, Yozo had not noticed his gentleness and his capacity for love”

    Dazai himself wrote that epilogue in what I assume to be trying to show how Yozo completely “fooled” the people around him into thinking he is kind, but for the translator of the book to see it as proof of how kind Yozo could be without him knowing……

  8. TheHarmAlarm says:

    Reading ‘No Longer Human’ was the first time I felt I could relate to someone else. Having schizoid pd myself, the book is a pretty comparable depiction of what living with that kind of disorder is like, albeit on the extreme darkest side. It’s an impactful story, thank you for sharing it.

    • baddogladieslove says:

      I think the premise of the story holds ever true today and is probably better understood today. “Disqualified from being human,” how many neurodivergent people have acutely felt this in their life? I know I sure as hell have.

  9. Freedfg says:

    This story really resonates with me, along with another story; being “Book Girl, and The Suicidal Mime” the idea of “Clowning” or “Masking” really hits me because it’s something I struggled with a lot. What is it to be “Normal” how will people perceive you if you aren’t? Are you even who you seem to be or what you’ve told yourself you are? It’s the idea of putting on a face and saying what people want to hear to avoid conflict. It’s haunting, but unfortunately a reality for a lot of interactions and you just try not to lose yourself to your mask and know who you are on the inside
