Was there a particular series that was able to scare you?
I love Uzumaki because all this weird shit is happening and the dude is like "girl, we just got to leave before it gets too bad" and every time she just goes "but its not THAT bad, I mean, people turning into snails isn't that bad right? It didn't happen to me, so it can't be too awful,"
Not really. Mononoke had some unsettling moments. Japanese horror is a strange beast to begin with, but it would seem it doesn't work very well with anime. Most "horror" series feel pretty cringe or just aren't scary at all, unfortunately.
Ghost in the Shell: Innocence had some disturbing moments though, pic related. It would be interesting if Oshii made a pure horror film.
Probably the only thing anime/manga/VN/LN related to actually scare the shit out of me (even though I knew it was coming). The scenes and arc directly after it were really unsettling and depressing to read directly after it too.
Ok, I'm going to say it... but don't you dare to laugh at me, understood ? My first horror anime. Its was the only one that could scare me then, when I was a little kitty of twelve years old:
Higurashi no naku koro ni. Yeah, Yeah, I know. The adaptation wasn't very good and the animation either, but my God that was scary for me in those days. Back then I wasn't used to that kind of stories, and it hit me like a thunderbolt. The music was very good, and the opening and ending are engraved in my memory, and the characters were so good too. I immediately become a fan of Ryukishi, that old bastard, I love that guy. Now nothing can scare me. I'm so used now that I don't feel nothing anymore... I would love to feel that sensation again.
Yeah, it's definitely a classic for me. Good times.
I hear you.
Personally I can't stand the anime but I probably would have liked it if I watched it first.
It's the eyes that really got me when I read it. And there's so much atmosphere sometimes it's overwhelming.
Betterman is pretty fucking creepy sometimes. Hard to believe it takes place in the same universe as GaoGaiGar.
For some strange reason, I didn't mind the eyes. It was the sudden change of attitude and the tone of the voices of the character what scared me the most. The atmosphere was incredible, and the music just made things even worse and more terrifying. The change from the happy games of the club to the psychotic laughs and the insanity was awesome.
Yeah, now I'm twenty-one. I can't believe how fast time goes.
Horror video games are the worst (in a good way). With movies or anime you can shut them out to a degree, but the level of interactivity in games these days basically forces you to be invested in the setting, meaning you'll be scared shitless by the slightest jumpscare
Kagewani had some nice episodes. Yami Shibai 3 soon.
read more VNs and find out. It's far more fun that way.
That one ova from seto no hanayome.
Scared the shit out of me because it came completely unexpectedly from what I would say is the best comedy I've ever watched.
I have 4chanx, so it displays video titles.
Seeing the title was still enough to give me a little anxiety
Don't reverse image search it and don't look up anything about it. It's
Muv-Luv. Just wait for the western release to finish later this year since it's adding some stuff and will be better than what's currently available.
>I love you, anon~
Thank you very much !!!
Muv-Luv contains Extra and Unlimited, which are the first 2 parts of the trilogy. They're necessary to read through to fully appreciate Alternative as a lot of events, characters, and specific lines are referenced in Alternative. I still enjoyed Extra (the high school part) though. Lacrosse was the only really boring part, and even the characters themselves draw reference to it being boring. The rest was genuinely entertaining to me. Think of a lot of it in Extra as a fun self-parody eroge since it's basically taking a lot of anime/manga/LN/VN motifs and cranking them up to 11.
The latest chapter of Dorohedoro got me because I hate eye-related injuries.
And I wasn't expecting it to happen a second time to the same character, either. The way it was executed was pretty funny though.
I thought everyone knew this. How's first week
It's better not to tell. Just play more VN's and some day you'll encounter it in its full glory. It's much better if you haven't been spoiled anyway.
Is there even a game that does that?
It's mostly all the same generic dark dirty-looking corridors and shitty usually body-horror monsters or just freaks as enemies,
They're all so samey be it Penumbra, Silent Hill or Condemned.
Silent Hill 2 excluding others is only one I can really think of. The game doesn't really have jumpscares so the strange and unnerving atmosphere is build using other tricks.Either you haven't played it or have a pretty shit taste. It might be you're also one of those super adult "horror isn't scary" types, which means you just lack the required mindset for optimal immersion, which is a really shit quality when playing/watching horror. In that case nothing can help you, really.
I find David Lynch's movies or stuff like Carpenter's The Thing scary.
Not so much videogames. Never played SH2 because a PCfag, but Silent Hill 3 and every other game that was on PC is shit.
Agree, your movies are good examples and rest of the Silent Hills lack good qualities. Lynch is pretty neat and SH2 has the same vibes, the pc version isn't that bad so give it a go.
Carpenter's Thing is probably my favorite movie and the ending scene of Inland Empire is still one of the scariest scenes I've seen in a movie.
