What is the plot of Junji’s ‘Tomie’?

It is hard to find a particular plot setting in Junji’s ‘Tomie,’ except for the fact that Tomie is a badass being. Rather than a ‘human’ being, it will be more explicit to say that Tomie Kawakami is some unnatural being. Even if she is cut off, limb by limb, even her limbs would grow more of her limbs.

Tomie’s classmates cut her into pieces

The first episode had fans in shock. Wondering it would be something simple, Tomie had appeared dead in the first scene itself. It was afterward, made known to the fans that Tomie’s classmate had killed Tomie. Not by pushing her down the cliff, that happened though. But the whole class and even the teacher-in-charge cut Tomie open. They cut her into 42 pieces, each student carrying one part and throwing off the river. Rather than gruesome, it was sad. However, the moment of sadness didn’t linger for more than a few minutes. Why? That’s because, it was clear, in the second episode, that Tomie was the one at fault. More than ‘at fault,’ Tomie was the reason herself for whatever was happening with people around her. That made fans excited as well as anxious. Excited because fans wanted to know more. And anxious because there were no more episodes anymore.

Jokes apart, or not, Tomie is a total narcissist, who makes sure that anyone who knows her is felt saddened by their own appearance. From men to women, Tomie is applauded for her beauty, instead, she makes sure that they do so. Truth be told, Tomie has abilities. Her ability to drive people insane after making them obsess over her. And her ability to regenerate. Even if Tomie is cut into innumerable pieces, she will regenerate. However, her regeneration might take time. The plot setting is unsure of, but Tomie is the most recurring character, of Itō’s, in Tomie, Tomie: Part 2 and Tomie Again. There have been various actresses, who played the role of Tomie, in live actions.
