dark shoujo

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

I found the series easy to follow; I'm aware other people had a different experience. the anime starts when Natsu wakes up. she knows nothing, therefore we know nothing. we figure things out gradually as she does. it is meant to start out confusingly.

considering how many characters they had to introduce and endear us to, they did an alright job. there's lots of shoujo drama which is what you'd expect from a classic shoujo survival manga. did Netflix mishandle it by making it uglier than sin and giving it half the episodes it needed *cough* Devilman Crybaby *cough* - ABSOLUTELY

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

'please, stop your murdering'. dialogue gold.

this is in the aesthetic-vacuum art style of every early digital anime. I like how they show the level of dedication and artistry it takes to be a skilled ventriloquist. also the comical disregard for police procedure. 

this anime espouses archaic views about women, which is typical of many anime and indeed Japanese society, so I'm not going to pick a fight with this particular title. I just feel disheartened whenever I am exposed to it

this has a bit of everything: action, drama, horror and practically watches itself despite being 50 eps long. it's well paced, with breathers after the suspenseful conclusion of each arc

there are things I don't like about it - like all the screaming - but it's an easy watch because it flows very well, with beautiful Mushishi-like music. 

it's regretable to find the 'hahaha time for women also passes' anime cliche here - when a woman appears, the other characters point out her age/looks and laugh - like, that's it, that's the punchline: U USED TO BE TEENAGE GIRL BUT NOW U NOT, Y U STILL CONFIDENT AND IN PUBLIC - I've recently seen this in Great Pretender as well. absolute hilarity every time. keep beating that dead horse, writers

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

I like the action, the adventure, the horror, the stories and the characters. even though they obviously have a gay romance, it is portrayed so that there's plausible 'no homo' deniability, so that's a sad world we live in. all of the above comments apply to Mo Dao Zu Shi as well

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

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 90s 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
