Horimiya Chapter 1 - Two different and hidden worlds collide

Horimiya Volume 1 Cover

I stumbled about Horimiya due to a random comment on youtube (regarding Manga and themes in them that need an Anime adaption). It took only a few pages to have me fall in love with both the stories and the characters presented in it and even after 78 chapters I still love it and cannot wait for the next chapters.

My favorite One Piece scene

I was considering doing a retrospective of the series starting with Volume 1 sometime in the future, but i thought it would be nice to post this as it's own thing.

This is the tale of a clumsy doctor's farewell to his gifted student and son )

The Seashore



I meant to post this yesterday but here's a bonus Junji Ito story that I posted three years ago here. In my opinion it's one of the creepiest stories from him.

Fuan No Tane: Apparition



For those S_D veterans here you may remember 'Fuan No Tane'. For those who don't, it was a Japanese horror anthology with stories amounting to only a few pages. They're not that scary compared to Junji Ito's work but a few are genuinely creepy.

Glyceride



This is a fairly infamous story from Junji Ito (at least among his American fans) for reasons that will become clear to you as you read it. It's gross. Very gross.

A quick look at: Nuriko from Fushigi Yuugi





This is a little spotlight on Nuriko from Fushigi Yuugi.

When introduced she's part of the ignored harem of the Emperor of Konan, and she's deeply in love with and devoted to the Emperor. She is also one of the seven chosen guardians for the Priestess of Suzaku (as is the Emperor), and she has the gift of super human strength. We later discover she's Assigned Male at Birth... And the characters after this point vary in how they treat her.

The text itself, really confuses the line between gay drag queen/okama, and trans woman... owing part to different cultural norms, and just the general confusion that people have on the issue. Presented here are some early scenes dealing with her outing... the reason behind her feminine presentation, and her ultimate fate... warning for some homophobic, and transmisogynistic content.

Anything But a Ghost



This was first posted here back in 2013. I thought it was appropriate for the season.
