So I've been keeping up with Ito Junji: Collection weekly and so far it actually seems pretty promising. The first episode wasn't all that great in my opinion but after that it really started to pick up with some more entertaining and even some thrilling shorts. If you're not familiar with the series, Ito Junji: Collection "... is a horror anime anthology series adapted from the works of manga artist Junji Ito. Animated by Studio Deen, the anime adapts stories from several of Ito's collections." - Wikipedia 

I'm not familiar with the manga but from what I've heard it is exceptionally good (apparently some of the best horror manga stories there are). I've seen a lot of other reviews from people who had a negative impression from the first episode because they apparently expected something a bit "more scary". That being said, the more positive reviews are ones by people who have actually read the manga and claim that the first episode features a character and story that is one of Ito's more comedic works so I wouldn't get to hung up on it and just power on to the next few episodes to see if you like it or not (I felt negatively about it after the first episode as well, but began to get more entertained with the next few after it). 

To sum it up the art style is fitting for the horror theme, the stories are all unique and have interesting concepts (living puppets, never-ending dreams, people turning into slugs), the show does get better as you go on, but if you get queasy easily (have a weak stomach) or have trypophobia I wouldn't recommend watching it. 

That's all I have to say for now but the show has only aired 4/12 episodes at the time of writing this so I will probably come back and edit it once it has finished. 

7/10 would be creeped out again - TyCoya's Noob Reviews
