Junji Ito's Uzumaki is receiving an anime adaptation next year thanks in part to a partnership forged between Cartoon Network's Adult Swim and the animation studio of Production IG, but the spooky story of a town cursed by spirals is trending for a very disturbing real life event! With the tale following teenagers that attempt to navigate their way through their town that has a number of insane supernatural events taking place in their town, the tale gave us some of the best moments created by Junji Ito throughout his career as a mangaka!
Twitter User Wormwood_Stars shared the news that Uzumaki was trending thanks in part to a number of people around the world reporting that they had memories of a "gigantic spiral", which was eerily similar to the events of one of Junji Ito's creepy tale:

Coincidentally, my dad has been obsessed with spirals lately, caught him staring at a snail the other day
