Adult Swim's upcoming anime adaptation of Uzumaki is already looking to be the best of the anime adaptations from the collective works of Junji Ito based on the clips we've seen so far, though fans have been reeling from the recent revelation that viewers will have to wait an additional year to see it with the release window being October 2022. While the release window was originally set for this year, the coronavirus pandemic, as well as the additional work being put into the series, have caused it to be pushed back, but many fans are definitely understanding the complications.
What do you think of the big delay for the upcoming spooky anime adaptation? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of Junji Ito.

Flying Lotus of Yasuke Fame Shares His Thoughts
When I heard they were making Uzumaki. I begged @Clarknova1 to keep it black and white. The only way. Shit is gonna be 😵💫😵💫😵💫— YASUKE (@flyinglotus) June 16, 2021
Okay, so I thought the animated adaptation of Uzumaki comes out in October, and I'm stoked because it looks fantastic, and the only other film adaptation of Uzumaki is a middling grindhouse movie from 2000. Get hyped, right?
October, yes. October 2022.— Dan Olson (@FoldableHuman) June 15, 2021
Not A Big Deal
The anime adaptation of Junji Ito's "Uzumaki" had an update today and is now set to be released on October 2022 on Toonami. A bit of a wait, but I don't mind. That said, if you read the original book, what are some things you hope to see in the anime? 🌀🌀🌀#Uzumaki pic.twitter.com/5mPz4yhdNA— Gilbert Martinez (@discord12395) June 15, 2021
