Lain thread. Let's all love Lain.

I wish I had some content for this! I'm on the third episode of the series right now; I just discovered it, haven't seen it before.

I've been meaning to watch this series for years. The closest I got was catching some dubbed episodes, including two just a few days ago, but having no idea what the fuck was going on. But that wasn't completely unexpected coming from a series that's basically David Lynch meets The Matrix, from what little I know. Are subs available on DVD these days or does anyone have it available to stream?

Back when I was on this board regularly, yeah. I don't know how often those streams come by nowadays, though. We also used to love to have Junji Ito threads, too. Those were fun. But /x/philes who enjoyed those don't necessarily watch anime regularly, so I was curious as to how many regular anime fans there are who still watch. Yami Shibai, which aired recently, should have been a thing here.

>>
>>15321370
There's some good newer /x/ shit. Mononoke, Mushishi, Ghost Hound, etc. Texhnolyze is all gritty and dark like Lain is, but without the Internet stuff, I dunno what the genre is called, cyberpunk I think? Boogiepop Phantom is also good, Paranoia Agent as well. Oh and Dennou Coil. Dennou Coil is one of my absolute favourite anime ever. It's similar to Lain in that the Internet plays a huge part of the series, but it's also vastly different. If you're looking for something more lighthearted, but still involving the supernatural, check out Hoshi Wo Ou Kodomo. I've also got a thing for Red Data Girl. If anyone's still around, I'll post a few more when I actually remember them.
>>
>>15322180
Not him, but I'm the one who brought up Yami Shibai. I think that's quintessential /x/ material right there. I'd also like to add to your list Shinsekai Yori, Paprika, Death Billiards, and of course, Eva. I can't really think of much more right now, either, except for loads of Sci-Fi that I'm not sure is prime /x/ material, like GitS, Animatrix, or Galaxy Express 999.
And I'm sure most people here would like Mind Game, though I don't know if that could be considered /x/ material either.
>>
>>15322362
Mind Game is fantastic, as is most of Masaaki Yuasa's work. I recommend Kaiba, it's pretty sci-fi, but it's also got tons of /x/ elements as well. Same director.

Kaiba looks great. Thanks, anon. It's refreshing to see someone with such a great powerlevel on /x/. If you've seen it, do you think Ideon could be considered /x/, even though 1/2 of it is just straight mecha?
>>
>>15322503
>Great powerlevel
Sorry, that's not me. My power level's pretty pathetic. I've never watched Ideon, either. If we're adding slightly less supernatural anime, but still incorporates supernatural themes, though, let's add Bakemonogatari, Eureka 7, and Kara no Kyoukai to that list.
>>
>>15322534
My bad. I was presumptuous in thinking I was talking to only one person. Though, I'm not sure I'm willing to go as far as to suggest E7 and such to be paranormal-centric. I think we have to define exactly what we consider /x/ material, because there are loads of anime with supernatural themes that I wouldn't consider recommending to this board. For example, Dream Hunter REM and Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi are both strongly supernatural, but nothing in them really invokes any sense of fright or psychedelic mindfuckery like Lain or Eva.

If you're familiar with the Golden Bough, E7 belongs there. I do agree that it's closer to fantasy than supernatural, though. Kami-sama no Inai Nichiyoubi is also fantasy, Kara no Kyoukai as well. It's a hard line to define, especially considering how much world building some of these shows have, like KnK which I mentioned previously. Though I'm not a big fan of limiting the supernatural solely to "psychedelic mindfuckery" or being scary.

Just finished watching Brilliant Park.

It's shit.
>>
>>15322639
Yeah, It is a hard place to define. Vampire Hunter D, even, is most definitely horror with tons of creepy visuals, but is often reduced in the mind to an action film. That's why I consider fright and/or psychedelic mindfucks to be some of the elements most /x/ posters can appreciate. Though, I do agree that it isn't enough to simply limit to those, or to have the anime necessarily have either one of those elements. Though, I propose that it's a start.
And, no, I didn't consider the Golden Bough, and I'm willing to concede on that, but the problem is that I'm not sure most of /x/ would buy it as a /x/ anime upon watching through it. I might be wrong on that, though.
Would Madoka be considered /x/ due to it's Faustian themes and creepy atmosphere, or would the the context of the "Magical Girl", which is all but unknown to most here, hinder an /x/phile's watching experience? Where do we draw the line? Miracle Girls is very Paranormal, but a good amount of the anime is a focus of the girl's relationships, and silly SoL antics in classic Magical Girl fashion. However, it does deal with twin telepathy, cryptids, and other strange things in a semi-realistic manner with some creepy scenes that I'm sure some /x/philes would enjoy.
>>15322787
>>15322832
Sup, niggas. It's looking to be a somewhat decent season.
>>
>>15322880
If people knew the Faustian themes, and what to watch for, it could be considered /x/, but most people would probably have to have it explained to them, honestly. I didn't realize the Golden Bough parallels in E7 myself until I'd actually read it. I believe we can bump it down to the "supernatural, but not really /x/ related" tier.
>>
>>15322896
What's our criteria, then?
Maybe it'd be a tier'd system. There's the bottom rung which just has supernatural themes; The middle, where it's /x/-related, but you'd have to have things explained to you or it just has creepy elements, but at it's core it's not /x/, like an intense Sci-Fi; And then the top, where it's all hardcore /x/.
>>
>>15322180
Mushishi's my jam
>>
>>15323006
Top tier: Mononoke, Boogiepop, Mushishi, Ghost Hound, Yami Shibai, Paranoia Agent
Middle tier: Dennou Coil, Lain, Eva, Paprika, Red Data Girl
Bottom Tier: Kara no Kyoukai, E7, Madoka

Like that?
>>
>>15323920
I've also got a great love for Hoshi Wo Ou Kodomo. Not sure where to put that on the tier list. It's by Makoto Shinkai, and absolutely gorgeous, just like all of his works. It incorporates a lot of folklore from all over the world. Agartha, Shakuna Vimana, there's even monsters based on the phenomena of sleep paralysis.
>>
Okay guys, of all these shows you've recommended, which one is shortest? I already have a fuckton on my watch list.
>>
>>15324788
Hoshi Wo Ou Kodomo is a movie. Mononoke is like 11 episodes, as well.
>>
>>15324788
Yami Shibai is 5 minutes an episode. Probably that.

Yeah, this is actually starting to look like it could work. I'd put Madoka in Middle tier, though, especially after getting to Rebellion. Maybe I should put together an infographic for my fellow anime watching /x/philes. If anyone wants to start on one, though, go for it.
>>15323947
Shinkai is always fantastic. Though, I haven't seen this film, so I wouldn't know. It sounds great, though.
>>
>>15327115
It's not as depressing as his other works, but in my opinion, it's the best. It actually has a plot that isn't just "oh woe is me, our relationship can never work."

>>15327115
I think this might've been my favorite scene in the entire movie. Even better than the Mami vs. Homu fight. Seeing her just fall into despair like that was so great.

I'd put Bakemonogatari in the bottom tier. Sure the series revolves around girls being possessed by spirits, but at it's heart it's still a harem. Also, Sankarea and Tasogare Otome x Amnesia if we're including the *monogataris. Bottom tier.

I'm not familiar with Higarashi. Sankarea is about zombie waifu and Tasogare x Amnesia is about ghost waifu. Aired in the same season, even. Higarashi anime is crap, though, isn't it? Wouldn't recommending the VN be better? Though if we're going into VNs, we'll need an entire new chart.

I haven't seen Higurashi, personally, but I think I remember there were mixed feelings about the anime, even though the VN was seen as invariably better. If you hold that it was crap, I'll forget about it. We need more Tier 1 anime, though. Another was crap, too, wasn't it?
So, what was your opinion of Sankarea and TxA? Were they good? Were they /x/ enough beyond just being another Magical Girlfriend anime? Am I being too much of a prude by not just adding it?
Also, F/SN should be good material to add to Tier 2 if the new anime turns out to be good enough, right?
And yeah, VNs as well as Manga should have a different chart, specifically only because I'm no expert on either. In fact, I'm still playing through my first F/SN route and have neglected to watch the current UBW anime so I can hurry and finish it. The extent of good horror manga I know is only Junji Ito.

F/SN is by the same author as Kara no Kyoukai. Kara no Kyoukai is a lot more /x/ than F/SN, though, in my opinion. Sankarea and Tasogare x Amnesia are honestly just magical girlfriend crap, but if we're adding the *monogataris they belong in as well. I don't know much about VNs either, I've only read 3~4. Not an expert on manga, only horror I know of is Ito obviously and Berserk. Homunculus is pretty legit /x/, though. I'm not an anime expert, so I'm all dried up on tier 1 anime. I guess we'll have to actually ask /a/ if we intend to take it further.

I don't think I'll add them in, then, but I think I'll keep *Monogatari in there simply because lots of people seem to enjoy it. I've only seen Bake, so I can't account for the whole series, but although it's just be a Harem anime, but it's pretty consistent with it's paranormal theme and it goes beyond just one instance of silly circumstances that turns a zombie or ghost into the protagonist's girlfriend. So, I'm considering changing "Monogatari Series" to only Bake, if that makes a difference at all.
Magical Pokaan is off the list, isn't it?

Madoka should be in tier 3.

Just because its a dark and spooky magical girl anime does not change the fact that its a magical girl anime. You've either got to move half of the shit from tier 2 to tier 1 or move madoka down.
>>
>>15335588
how much magical girl anime do I need to watch to appreciate the "deconstruction" in Madoka? i've just seen sailor moon.
>>
>>15335608
the same amount of super robot anime you'd need to appreciate the "deconstruction" in NGE.
>>
>>15335588
I'll consider it, but the reason why it's in Tier 2 is not only because it's nice and spooky, but also because of it's /x/ themes. Just because there's a bias against Mahou Shoujo, doesn't mean it can't be considered as /x/ as NGE, which at it's core is just another Mecha, but also deals with apocolypse and ancient alien gods with freaky visuals. Madoka is the same; It has managed to turn Mahou Shoujo into something creepy which deals with Faustian themes and so on. I hold that it should be Tier 2, which really has the most ambiguity. Maybe the problem is in the description of the tier?
Tier 3 is reserved more for that anime which doesn't manage to be spooky in any fashion, but is related to the paranormal.
>>15335608
The "deconstruction" aspect only deals with the "Magical Girl Sentai" subgenre of Magical Girl, Sailor Moon being the first and foremost of that. It should be enough for a casual watch.
>>
>>15335620
So, none.
>>
>>15335628
Yep.
>>
>>15335608
Also, I never really considered Madoka to be a "deconstruction" of anything. Neither did I feel that way about NGE.
>>
>>15335650
It's absolutely not, same with NGE, and I'm not sure why they both get labeled that way.
>>
>>15335650
I was recommended to see the original light happy stuff before the darker twist on the happy stuff.
>>
>>15335654
Because for a lot of people just getting into anime, it's the first "deep" thing they've watched. Deconstruction doesn't really even mean anything at this point.
>>
>>15335655
Yeah, which is why I said Sailor Moon should be enough.
>>15335654
pretty much this, yeah. >>15335657
I was about to type the same thing.
>>
It's a visual novel rather than an anime, but Saya no Uta is /x/ as fuck.
>>
>>15335664
VNs are a different thing altogether, but yes, Saya no Uta should be standard /x/ reading fare. Along with most of Ito's work and Fuan no Tane.
>>
>>15335664
Hell yeah, nigger.
>>
>>15335657
It's as if anything made with even a little passion towards a genre that takes it in an interesting way is considered "deconstruction". What shit.
Anyway, maybe I could add a column for VNs and manga if we can collectively find enough titles to warrant it. Although, if I do that, I'd need to just put "All Junji Ito" in one box.
And maybe I should add a little to the description up top that says something like, "The listed anime are to be considered heavy enough with /x/ aspects to warrant a watch by any /x/phile" so we don't consider some shit we wouldn't want to waste our time on.
>>
>>15335683
Manga: Ito, Fuan no Tane, Hanashippanashi, Homunculus, Berserk
VNs: Umineko/Higurashi, Saya no Uta, Tsukihime
>>
>>15335686
Oh shit, under VNs should be Chaos;Head too. It's more sci-fi than /x/, though.
>>
>>15335690
That reminds me. I didn't watch it, but shouldn't Steins;Gate be on the list, too? Both anime and VN, if I make the VN column? I heard it's about John Titor, which is prime /x/ material.
>>
>>15335694
Steins;Gate is firmly in the sci-fi category, sorry. Parallel dimensions is an iffy subject, though.
>>
>>15335696
I really want someone to argue with you about that because I love me time travel and parallel dimensions, but if you're sure about that, I'll have to take your word for it.
