Back in August, we asked Junji Ito (and cat) fans to share their cats for a special International Cat Day Contest with Junji Ito! Participants had a chance to win a whole slate of prizes, including the grand prize of a custom illustration by Ito-sensei! We took a look at the 1,831 submissions and we’re now happy to announce the winners of the contest! Thank you to all who submitted and congratulations to the winners!

And as a special thank you to everyone who participated, Junji Ito illustrated this special sketch that references his infamous work Uzumaki, which you can look forward to on Adult Swim in 2021!
