dark shoujo

when nights start drawing in, I feel like watching horror and melancholic stuff

this is trashy and I love it. the designs look like a teen's doodles from the early 00s but I like how the colour palette switches at night-time/ when magic happens; it's rudimentary but effective. the female characters are the best part, however. this is shoujo x 100

7 Blood+


this has a bit of everything: action, drama, horror and practically watches itself. it's well paced, with breathers after the suspenseful conclusion of each arc

8 Blood Reign: Curse of the Yoma

gorgeous cel art. the 1st episode has good action animation, making it vastly superior to the 2nd

the characters from Gegege no Kitarou but they are mean, cruel and live in penury

oh my stars, this has a live-action series on Netflix called The Untaimed. it has a bit of daytime-drama quality about it because half the budget went on hair pieces

the 1st half is terribly cheesy, the action kicks off in the 2nd half and that's the good part

34 Noblesse: Awakening

the series follows directly from this OVA so it helps to watch this first if you're not familiar with the webtoon

this is not subtle film making but the characters are great, especially badass main girl, even 3rd wheel Sampei - he's a boy in a 90's OVA so he's contractually obligated to harass the girl - but the friendship between the 3 leads was genuinely touching and the best interaction in the OVAs. I wish they made yuri like this. and I didn't expect a damning indictment of the Japanese penal system in my yoyo wielder highschool anime

Aki Kouno's GEIDAI work reminds me of Noburou Oofuji's shadow animations
