Fans of horror and anime have been eagerly awaiting the release of “Uzumaki” on Adult Swim, based on the popular manga series by Junji Ito. “Uzumaki” is known for its creepy and gripping stories. It explores the strange and macabre, pulling viewers into a world of horrors that keep getting worse.
The Adult Swim adaptation promises to bring Ito’s image of a nightmare to life through animation, which will be exciting for both longtime fans and people who haven’t read the book before. As of my last update in September 2021, Adult Swim had not officially stated when “Uzumaki” would come out, making people even more excited for this scary series.
Uzumaki Adult Swim Release Date
By the end of 2023, the Uzumaki release date would have come. The anime’s development began roughly four years ago, but several setbacks occurred.
However, the show’s first clip was only unveiled at the “Toonami on the Green” event of the Adult Swim Festival. There hasn’t been a public announcement about the Uzumaki Adult Swim Anime Series.
Furthermore, the anime is confirmed to air later in 2023, according to Adult Swim’s Senior Vice-President Jason DeMarco. Its release month hasn’t yet been determined, though.
Once we have formal information, ComingSoon will update this story. Watch the recently-released first-look video:
The black-and-white horror aesthetic of Junji Ito’s manga will be easily translated into the anime, as the clip reveals. In it, Kirie Goshima, Shuichi Saito’s girlfriend, and we explore the Japanese town of Kurouzu-cho through their eyes. However, the anime’s voice cast has not yet been made public.

Who is in the Uzumaki Anime Cast?
There are many talented people in the Uzumaki anime cast and crew. Uki Satake and Shin-ichiro Miki will take on the starring roles of Kirie Goshima and Shuichi Saito, respectively:
- Uki Satake as Kirie Goshima
- Shin-ichiro Miki as Shuichi Saito
- Mariya Ise as Azami Kurotani
- Wataru Hatano as Okada
- Mika Doi as Yukie Saitou
- Takashi Matsuyama as Toshio Saitou
Satake has previously contributed to popular anime shows including Mob Psycho 100 and Space Dandy. Additionally, Miki is perhaps most known to fans as the original James voice in the Pokemon anime. Sir Nighteye from My Hero Academia was also voiced by Miki. So, yes, Uzumaki’s squad includes some seasoned talents.
What Will Happen in the Uzumaki Anime Series?
The characters of the Uzumaki anime story will be the residents of Kurouzu-cho, who will soon start to experience spiral curses and approach madness. The young girl Kirie Goshima and her boyfriend Shuichi Saito are the main characters that we will be focusing on as they deal with ghostly obstacles plaguing their house.
The anime will probably follow the manga’s whole plot, so expect to see some amusing snail transformations, hypnotizing faces and hair, and some genuinely fierce typhoons.
Additionally, when Kirie and Shuichi attempt to flee Kurouzu-cho, we will learn more about the curse that looms over the city. But when it comes to the plot of the new anime, there is one thing that all of us Junji Ito purists must remember.
The Uzumaki anime will have four episodes, therefore modifications to the plot are probably in order to accommodate the time restrictions. This implies that some story beats might be changed or skipped entirely. As new information becomes available, we will update you.
