The spiral of waiting continues Adult Swim’s anticipated anime adaptation of Uzumaki, the acclaimed horror manga from Junji Ito, has once been delayed again.
The Uzumaki anime is being directed by Hiroshi Nagahama of Mushishi and The Flowers of Evil fame and being produced by animation studio Drive, with a score by Hereditary composer Colin Stetson. Nagahama’s adaptation of Uzumaki isn’t the only anime based on Junji Ito’s work on the horizon, as Netflix recently announced the anime anthology Junji Ito Maniac: Japanese Tales of the Macabre, set to premiere next year.
The official Twitter account for the anime, which was previously slated to premiere this October, announced the adaptation would again be delayed.
No premiere date has been announced yet, but a new one will be announced sometime in the near future.
