Episode 49 – Existential, Extraterrestrial Holiday Fun

Merry Jingles! It’s holiday season, which means of course that we’re discussing…more Junji Ito works. Hey, it’s always fun. This week we discuss No Longer Human and Remina and share our queerpinions on:

– Ito’s adaptation choices in No Longer Human
– Narratives about sad abusive men that center their misery over the results of their actions
– Themes in Ito’s work, and the degree to which they’re intentionally developed
– The camp aesthetics of a planet with various body parts

You can find us and subscribe on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Podcast Addict!

Content warning: We’re a fairly NSFW podcast that includes use of reclaimed homophobic slurs. This episode contains major spoilers for both aforementioned books, as well as their contents and themes of suicide, violence against women, torture, body horror, death, and chidlhood sexual abuse.
