Only Ito's interests were different and he did not draw princesses, but monsters. His idol in childhood and youth was the creator of comics Kazuo Umezu and the influence of this illustrator is clearly visible in the works of Junji. Despite his passion for drawing, Ito, as an obedient son of his parents, learned to be a dental technician.
