I unironically really enjoyed this show, even if it failed at being a spooky horror.
>>
>>102148078
Because anime can't convey properly the fear unlike manga/live-action/novel.
>>
>>102148078
They can, but for some reason they never really tried in anime aside from gore horror.
Thankfully there's Yami Shibai.
>>
>>102148078
>mfw people think another is a horror
It's a comedy.
>>
Because horror and animation are completely incompatible.
>>
Because animated horror doesn't work and never ends up being scary, it just looks childish and stupid.

Manga on the other hand might work.
>>
>>102148078
I loved how Mei and Izumi's final battle was, at the core, just a catfight over a guy.
>>
Anime isn't suited to serious horrors, Another was a fine/ok horror comedy.
>>
>>102148078
Because of the fucked up things some of their citizens do?
Sometimes you have to make what bumps in the dark a little less scary.
>>
because anime is just too cute most of the time to be considered scary. Sure character can be badass as fuck but that doesn't make them intimidating.

Actually, I think you'll find that some of the scariest movies are from Japan. Anime horror is always retarded though. Anothet was fun as fuck but not scary at all.

I found the first half or so very good, nice horror atmosphere. But when the facepalming started, it lost all impact.

The irony is that kids who think it's comedy are just being edgy themselves.

Animated horror certainly works, I've seen some French(?) indie horror animations that were pretty good. It's just that it doesn't really work with the Japanese cute animation plus it doesn't really work with the TV series format (horror works should stay short enough).

An anime horror shortfilm by Inu Curry could work.

I liked the OVA.

That one arc of SSY was probably the only time I was ever frightened from an anime.

Mostly gory

Corpse Party amounts to torture porn and Scooby Doo. Even the game was only spooky for five minutes and then it was just an extremely linear Scooby Doo adventure.

So apparently you think that 14-year-old girls who can't write properly have good taste too? Because that's the majority of Another fans.
>>
>>102161311
Nope. I genuinely enjoyed the series. It was a fun watch with some great first few episodes. Also, who gives a fuck about the fanbase? Loads of shows have huge obese 14 year old tumblr girls watching them.
>>
>>102161433
I enjoyed the series too, but tbh it isn't very good.

To be fair the beach episode of Another was rather good. The colours were much darker and greyish than in typical beach episodes and fitted the intended atmosphere relatively well. There were MUCH worse episodes and scenes in this show.

It's not like Scooby Doo at all. Anyway, the concept that whenever a person dies, they're stuck reliving their death over and over for eternity is pretty scary to me. I prefer that kind of horror to jump scares.
>>
>>102162125
I think you need a good blend of all types of scares for a game to actually be scary. If you rely on only one, it's not that scary.
>>
>>102162125
But eternal pain is fine since you'd get used to it.
The only real problem is that you'd get super bored.
>>
>>102162125
It not being Scooby Doo as fuck is bullshit. That aside the reason Corpse Party disappointed me greatly was because they had a fantastic central theme to build upon to create a memorable horror story and then couldn't figure out what the fuck they wanted to do with it. Just felt like they never followed through. Damn shame really...
>>
>>102162554
Well, being eternally bored is scary in its own way.

>>102162783
>It not being Scooby Doo as fuck is bullshit.
Why because they're teenagers, and they end up solving a mystery? Seems pretty flimsy to me. Have you every actually watched Scooby Doo?
