    Junji Ito never fails to horrify and sicken me with the stories he produces and, most importantly, his grotesque art style.Even though I gave this five stars and loved the majority of this, I didn t fully enjoy every single element of this book I found The Sad Tale of the Principal Post to be a bit too short for my liking yet it did not lack in strangeness.I also felt that Mast
