So... anime is a theme now?
Sure it is.
Big eyes, school girls, panty shots, main characters behaving like morons for no reason, mechas.
For some reason it's seen as a genre in the west.
Not always, but still.
It means it appeals to weebs
Is that a young moot on the right?
Is that moot on the right?
And there's only one art style. I don't understand why people trivialize things so much. It's not hard to realize the world is vast and varied.
I once watched an episode of this because someone on /tv/ streamed it
I don't think I've ever seen a more horrible TV show
The main culprits are the people who watch anime in the west. They all think it's the same thing.
Fucking jew so desperate he's acting.
>Go to PS store to find some movie for younger cousin to see
>See anime category
>"Hmmm, what it's there?"
Well, it is kind of hard to make a faire opinion out of no knowledge.
Too bad that opinion will prevent them from getting into this medium
Funny the first season reminded me of Umineko in terms of ass pulls and shock value.
>don't watch mainstream action series
>watch mainstream action series instead
Anime has recurring themes commonly associated with it.
Why couldn't they use those?
Yeah, but they don't seem to do it to the extent you see in other mediums. If you talk to people about vidya, they seem to recognize there's diversity and not just Call of Duty or Mario. Similar for other fields, but anime almost always gets trivialized to one unified blob or whatever.
I think it's don't watch terribad shonen watch aight shonen in instead
What's American Horror Story anyway, serialized Scary Movie? I honestly have no idea, but with jumping on such themes it was my first thought.
Just watched the season finale of coven last night. It was pretty good but the season in general was lacking compared to 1 and 2. I for one have no fucking idea how they are going to do an anime themed american horror story but it could be pretty interesting. Also is there any proof on this because I can't find anything on the internet atm that says it's confirmed
Except video games are mainstream as all fuck, so basically anyone except old people know at least some things about it.
Anime is pretty obcure, even in countries where it's the most popular.
It pretty much takes a classic horror scenario (season 1 was haunted house, season 2 was an asylum, and season 3 was a witch coven and had some voodoo shit in there too) and turns it into a full story with multiple characters rather than just the usual, oh my house is haunted lets have jump scares for 2 hours and then have an inconclusive ending. It's like if a horror movie actually had an interesting plot along being scary and what not. If you want to watch it I would suggest the first season as the acting is probably the best, but that's not saying the other two aren't good.
I would love a serialized Scary Movie.
its a show were the seasons are standalone horror stories but they share the same actors the first season was a haunted house, the second was like an asylum , and the latest season is about a coven of witches
To be fair, you could say "anime" is a theme because the actual medium is actually just animated cartoons with anime being nothing more than Japanese animation.
So S4 will be about the horrors of cons and the weeaboos that attend them?
Also forgot to say this, but it's quite well written. There is a ton of foreshadowing (not always obvious) and also a lot of meaning behind the motivation for the characters to do the things they do.
Lastly I don't think it's going to be anime themed, I believe it's going to be set right after WWII in the 1950's which could include something to do with Japan and something to do with Germany. I don't think they have announced the actual thing yet.
Season 4 will be about the horrors of anime fans?
American Horror Story is trash. The opening theme is the ONLY thing remotely scary about the show. The camera work is fucking god awful, it's like whoever is in charge doesn't know how to NOT use a dutch angle or fisheye lens. You use those things conservatively, not all the time. Christ, watching the show made me want to tilt my TV to correct it. Not to mention the story is just a bunch of female-type drama with bitches bleeding all over each other. It's disgusting in every way as it panders to the typical teenage western(American?) teenage girl.
Despite it being shit, I honestly have to wonder how this will work out with anime being stereotyped as weird and geeky. How the fuck is it going to be "horror" story though? Yandere or what?
As someone who watches American Horror story, this is hilarious but also obviously fake.
Because most people don't understand that forming an opinion without looking into something is dumb. A lot of people think they can come to good conclusions without thinking for very long.
Just look at politics; generalization is the way to go, or Billy-Bob might have to think more than 5 consecutive thoughts. The feeling that something becomes more right the more easily you end up with that conclusion, that is so often used to steer people into agendas, is what is happening with this and everything else that isn't mainstream. Simplifying things and possibly deriving them of merit, to create the notion that you need or don't need it in your life, based on a feeling that it's supposed to be obvious.
We do this on our own to filter out things, and by normalfags it's used to stay normal.
>American Horror Story
>watch hitman reborn
I'd rather not
I'll agree with you that the first and third seasons weren't very scary or very well written but you have to agree with me that season two had a lot of creepy moments and seemed overall to have a better script.
I'd rather see one with a bunch of Japanese monsters than 'anime'
Oh man I love these. Comedy gold.
I don't believe you.
Oh boy, an american horror show based around Youkai would be really scary.
While we're on the topic of horror shows, how is Helix? I watched the pilot, it seemed pretty good, but I haven't had time to catch up.
One with the good bits of Yami Shibai would be interesting
It's not going to be anime themed maybe just have a slight relation at the most.
Also this season wasn't as much horror at all I will give you that, but it definitely had it's moments. Axeman in the office scene, zoey and chainsaw wrecking zombies, anything to do with Madam Levoue torturing people(or however you spell that). Papa legba is also pretty fucking creepy. I agree with the overdone drama portion of this last season, but the filming was actually very well done. Maybe you're just ocd when it comes to camera work, but angle is a great way to subconsciously make the viewer feel a certain way. You aren't supposed to be at ease during those scenes because even though the talking and whatnot is casual the information they're talking about is supposed to be the key point.
If you have only watched the third season then I can see why you could possibly call it shit, but go watch the first two and they are unanimously much better.
This is disgusting.
The acting in the first season was awesome even if the writing was a little bit lower tier
I couldnt find it on google.
Just imagine an episode based around kappas and soul balls.
All dat anal pain.
Holy shit you just made me want to watch a Youkai themed american horror story so bad. With all of the different types of demons the Japanese have made up along with the fact that Japanese can do horror quite well it would be sick. But sadly it's probably not going to happen
Kappas are the single most scary youkai.
Please don't have any hope. Just like America generalized my country's monsters (and almost every american country's), Japan's will be made just as banal
Stop it, you are actually making me hope for something like this.
I'm not sure if you guys are playing along or if some of you actually believe this troll.
>On November 6, 2013, FX announced that the show had been renewed for a fourth season. Film locations have been rumored to be New Orleans or Santa Fe. Ryan Murphy has revealed exclusively to Entertainment Weekly that the season will take place in the year 1950. Murphy stated, "If you look historically what happened in the year 1950, there's some more clues in that year. It's a period piece. We try and do the opposite of what we've done before. Jessica Lange has already started practicing her German accent so I'm very excited!"
You just want to see someone's soul getting removed from their ass.
I want a horror tv serial by junji ito
I wanted this too before Gyo came out.
The writers of the show said there is a hint at the next seasons theme in the 10th episode and some other easter eggs in the following episdoes. I can't remember what the thing is called but myrtle uses an instrument that was commonly used for sound effects in 1950's horror films in the tenth episode. Chances are it's going to have something to do with either 1950's Hollywood or just 1950's stuff in general. And that being post war era also gives it the chance to have some German or Japanese influence.
Pretty much what this guy said
Yeah, basically this. Hell, even vidya is only recently more accurately portrayed in movies and TV, not too many years ago most of them still have generic beep boop pacman sounds for game noises.
>She pulls out the book.
I can't finish this...
