Ito's Uzumaki and Tomie manga have inspired live-action adaptations, and his GYO manga inspired an OVA. Viz Media has published these three titles, as well as Ito's Fragments of Horror, Frankenstein: Junji Ito Story Collection, and Smashed: Junji Ito Story Collection in English.

ComicsOne has also published his Flesh Colored Horror manga, Dark Horse Comics has published his Museum of Terror manga, and Kodansha Comics has published his Junji Ito's Cat Diary: Yon & Mu manga.

The Junji Ito "Collection" of 2017 has anime adapted some stories from the It Junji Kessaku-sh (Junji Ito Masterpiece Collection) and Fragments of Horror manga.

He has most recently worked on a manga adaptation of Osamu Dazai's classic novel No Longer Human (Ningen Shikkaku) that launched in May of 2017.
