We now have on hand the second of three deluxe hardcover volumes collecting this classic of manga horror by Kazuo Umezz. Composed of nine interconnected stories, each a planet of its own, but all caught in the orbit of one mysterious woman. As per Viz, this volume continues with three 100+ page works, starting with "Prodigy," in which Orochi watches from the shadows while a baby boy matures and proves that you never know who someone will grow up to be, followed by "Home," wherein Orochi accompanies a man home after an accident--but as they say, you can never go home again... and then this volume concludes with "Key," where the rules of good and evil are blurred for two families when Orochi moves into a new apartment.
This film is SO far out that we are not yet ready to do it justice. Suffice it to say that fans of cinema that strays from the beaten path should consider checking this out – as long as they are prepared for the possibility that they might get lost deep in the woods. Those true believers that are already there and consider it home should consider this an absolute must see. THIS is a one of a kind film. Here's its homepage. Or just go straight to its trailer on YouTube. This is a film that you will want to watch more than once and will enjoy turning your friends on to and watching their jaws drop (presuming, of course, that your friends' cinematic tastes – as well as your own, we hasten to add – can handle the intensely bizarre flavors contained in this big bento box of a film).
