Sometimes the greatest distance is between people. Whether a man alienates himself from society with a façade of cheerfulness, or two friends fail to communicate their feelings of betrayal, invisible barriers plague mankind. Although love should bring people together, when a stoic renter and a dutiful monk choose to court a widow’s daughter, their mutual affections drive a bitter gap between them. During each encounter filled with mistrust and despair, the flaws of human nature slowly reveal themselves...
It is said that humans fear what is different, and that such fears drive much of human behavior. Naoto and Nayao learned the brutal truth of this statement when they see the looks on their parents’ faces, the day they were sent to an isolated laboratory to live out their youth. Their crime? Possessing inherent psychic abilities. Yet now, the brothers have escaped and are at last free to experience the world, but they soon discover that their prison was also their protection from the outside world. The question is, are their powers more dangerous to themselves, or those around them?
Both series are quite psychological. The atmosphere is some what dark, kind of serius and there is something more that make me wonder why you must watch both. In Night Head Genesis, Naota and Naoya had strong bonds of brotherhood, the same you can figure out in Aoi Bungaku series, in the chapter of Run, Melos!
In the streets of Tokyo, a new menace has surfaced: Shounen Bat, a young boy who wears golden roller skates and a baseball cap, and likes to whack people on the head with a golden baseball bat. These seemingly unconnected and random attacks soon become a police investigation... but after all is said and done, is there a pattern to this chaos?
BOuth series hav a tremendas amoun to do with pshycologey and philosophy, all have episodic stories that have some kind of point or insight on life, And bouth have very uniqe animatioun styleys and bouth are made by madhouse
Ten years have passed since the demise of the bubble economy, a time that polarized the world into two groups of people: the rich and the poor. In the present day, Saiga Tatsumi (a former war photographer) has been hired to investigate a secret club for the rich named the Roppongi Club, but he soon discovers secrets much darker than he’d ever imagined. With the help of a exploited goddess named Kagura, Saiga now possesses the power to kill by simply taking a photograph; but can he stay alive long enough to save her from her captors?
Both feature very human elements- of the lesser degree- and speaks volumes of the true nature of man.
Aoi Bungaku is not as action packed[though very violent at times] but it still ventures into the realms of the darker side of the human mind. Few several short stories it makes valuable comparisons between natural human emotion and severe psychosis, all the while maintaining a fast-paced story to keep the viewer interested.
If you like action, vice violence mixed in with your intelligent observation of society, this is a show for you.
At the Kokumondo book store, Suzuri will do whatever it takes to find the most rare and historic artifacts for his customers – in fact, the man has just procured a tale of a terrifying spider monster who ate the men of a village one by one. But when Suzuri's assistant Mizuki opened the book, little did the two know that the monster herself would be unsealed from the pages, nor that she'd be an adorable little girl!
Creepy tales abound in Aoi Bungaku, and Wasurenagumo, a stand-alone tale, fits perfectly in with the atmosphere created in Aoi Bungaku. These shows compliment each other very well. If you like horror in small doses, both are sure to float your boat.
