With no idea of how they got there or how they'll survive, these students must work together and set forth into the unknown to discover the truth of their circumstances.

In the seemingly-normal small Japanese town of Kurozu-cho, odd events are beginning to take place. Residents are becoming obsessed with spiral - whirlwinds, snail shells, pottery, or anything with a spiral design. But when strange events start happening in the town, with spirals appearing in disturbing places, can anyone escape their horrible draw?
Uzumaki and Cat Eyed Boy are twisted, grotesque tales of horror that will keep you hooked from start to end. Both also have an episodic slant with a bit of consistency with the characters. HIGHLY recommended.
