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 According to Shuichi Saito, the withdrawn boyfriend of teenager Kirie Goshima, their town is haunted not by a person or being but by a pattern: uzumaki, the spiral, the hypnotic secret shape of the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!
