adaptation decay is In Universe Examples Only
An animated OVA for the story was released on February 15, 2012 by Ufotable. There are some [[AdaptationDistillation artistic liberties]] with the OVA story, such as Kaori becoming the protagonist, as well as new side characters to boot. Whether this makes it a [[PragmaticAdaptation better adaptation]] or a [[AdaptationDecay poor rendition of Gyo]] is up to interpretation.

* CosmicHorrorStory: The circus master's interpretation of the gas is that it is coming from another world, which would definitely put the story in this genre. However, there are also other explanations offered up for the gas, of considerably more mundane origin, and it's never made clear who's right.

* {{Fanservice}}: Though it somewhat serves a purpose to the plot (washing the smell away), Kaori's shower scene in the first chapter is one of Junji Ito's very, very rare examples (possibly the only example) of nudity that seems partially meant to be eye-candy and not just horrifying. The shower scene is also used to implied that the zombie fish is around, though, but that isn't too scary, at least not more scary than other scenes. This unique case of fanservice is probably due to the quite light-hearted start of the manga.

* MeaningfulName: "Kaori" comes from Japanese words referring to smell, and she has a very powerful sense of smell (causing her to pick up the death-stench before anyone else).
