Have you ever been so spooked out by a dark passageway you ran down it to get into a lot area? Or have you ever walked down a dark road, covered in dry leaves and have the extreme paranoia that something or someone is following you when you hear leaves cracking behind you?
That is the human emotion of fear, a survival mechanism built into us (and most animals too) to safeguard our sorry arses when we’re in the middle of a s**tstorm.
For today’s post, I will be having the usual “surgical” dissection of a topic with brute force ideology and for today, we have the topic of “The compelling power of Fear” and I will be referencing Tasogare Otome X Amnesia.
There will be many various posts in the near future where I speak of various aspects of Tasogare and similar manga/anime (like Sankarea).
Warning: Spoilers for Tasogare. And pic spam
For this season, I have only decided to pick up 4 shows so it’s goes without saying that the anticipation for them is really high. @fkeroge’s post on Fate/Zero sums up my thoughts on Fate/Zero pretty well and I might be writing a post on Jormungand soon. But today’s post would be on Tasogare Otome X Amensia.
Out of the 4 selected anime this season, I’ve read the manga for 2 of them. I recently read Jormungand to it’s latest volume and it’s just non-stop excitement and just awesome action scenes. The other I’ve read was Tasogare Otome X Amnesia and I’m still undecided which I enjoyed more. But whilst Jormungand appealed more to my feral side that screams “LET’S KILL EVERYONE WITH AN ASSAULT RIFLE!!!!!!!”, Tasogare appealed more to my logical brain due to it’s theme of mystery and also a hint of controversy.
As you guys may have seen the previous post, this will be my last few blog posts until I am done with that big examination, so I hope you enjoy my somewhat of a “goodbye post”. This time it’s the spring preview post.
Now, seeing that I will not be blogging about it at all, I will go with a new format. Not why I am watching this show, but why I think you would enjoy the show, also I will not describe much about the show, I will leave you to find that out. (It’s not hard) I guess my guessing skills were quite good seeing I picked quite good shows to watch for the winter season.
