Tomie (富江)

18 Sep

In album Tomie (富江)

Junji Ito's character of Tomie (富江) remains one of my favorite manga and live-action characters.

She possesses an undisclosed power to make anyone fall in love with her. Through sleight of hand, or emotional manipulation, she drives these men into jealous rages that inevitably lead to brutal acts of violence. Men kill each other over her; and girls are sometimes driven to jealous rages as well. Tomie is inevitably killed time and again, only to regenerate. Tomie is bound to go on forever in this way.
