Summary:
From Viz:

Kur么zu-cho, a small fogbound town on the coast of Japan, is cursed. According to Shuichi Saito, the withdrawn boyfriend of teenager Kirie Goshima, their town is haunted not by a person or being but by a pattern: uzumaki, the spiral, the hypnotic secret shape of the world. It manifests itself in small ways: seashells, ferns, whirlpools in water, whirlwinds in air. And in large ways: the spiral marks on people's bodies, the insane obsessions of Shuichi's father, the voice from the cochlea in your inner ear. As the madness spreads, the inhabitants of Kur么zu-cho are pulled ever deeper, as if into a whirlpool from which there is no return...

I saw another review for this manga sometime back, I said what the hell I'll read the first chapter before I head to bed. At first I was taken by the art, I personally find it fantastic. As I continued to read the first chapter I found myself being drawn in like it was a vortex, which is what the mangas title means. What I had planned to be a simple one chapter read before bed turned into me staying up and reading the entire thing. I thought it was highly unique and an excellent find. I strongly recommend giving it a chance!

I was thinking... "Two reviews after another? I wonder what's so interesting about this manga." Then I read the first chapter and was pulled in by its surreal story and freakish illustrations. The art style perfectly fits this manga, especially a certain image in the first chapter, you'll know what I mean when you see it...

I haven't read this in a while but I remember back in the day I would just chill around Borders (RIP...) and I picked up this manga. I literally stood there for maybe an hour or two just reading it. Uzumaki is a horror story that sucks you in... but maybe that is the point since the plot is about spirals.
Once you start reading it you probably won't stop, it can be really eerie and creepy at times too. Give it a try.

this was a crazy disturbing series...after reading the first chapter i was so bothered by it that i had to continue reading--even if i didn't want to. it's a crazy thing. definitely an intriguing and addicting story. i'd say a must read for those of you horror manga fans.
