Okay, I'm a true -Monogatari noob but after watching only half of Bakemonogatari episode 1 I'm hooked! Anyway, I noticed that Crunchyroll has Nisemonogatari and not Bakemonogatari. Since I can't afford a $60 DVD set quite yet and since I'm dying for a fix, will watching Nise- ruin Ba...

There's a fantastic scene in the aptly named Living Hell that features an Evil Granny in the prime of her creepiness. I read in it's IMDB entry that this movie has an equally fucked up younger woman. Is she creepy at all? I should clarify that, since a major theme in the videos I'm maki...

So I just watched Audition and I have to say I was extremely underwhelmed. It started out quite good but it was nowhere near as intense as it's hyped to be and the ending was anticlimactic to say the least. Regardless, Eihi Shiina is really creepy and for this I'm thankful.

Thanks, that was interesting and informative. I guess that girl was just a douchebag then.

As far as young Japanese people go, the aversion to coupling appears to be a problem affecting both sexes, with complicated multi-source origins. I know this is a bit divergent from the topic (then again, this topic no longer has anything to do with simulated dating videos), but I want to l...

Well, I tried and failed to buy "Audition" but I got "Battle Royale" instead based on the recommendation of the good Mr. Oz. I'm looking forward to seeing it. Honorable mention in our category goes to "Tale of Two Sisters". I know she's Korean, but Moon Geun-You...

Movies With Creepy Japanese Women

I know this is a little odd, but I need footage for a music video of creepy Japanese women doing unpleasant things (torture, unethical science experiments, cannibalism, etc.), or just standing there being vaguely unsettling. Creepiness is the sole arbiter of value here. I'm not talking a...

I suddenly feel grossly incandescent with rage. I was about to flip out as well until I realized that, if women suddenly had to compete with perfect artificial females who would "approach us with nothing but good intentions and fall in love with us for no reason a all" (to paraphrase ...

Death industrial dark ambient noise project. Currently working on a concept album about a girl who dicked me over but hope to someday do one about End of Eva. I already did a harsh noise cover of Cruel Angel's Thesis, but it's so brutal and soul-grinding that my editing software refuses to c...

So apparently, these simulated date-things weren't invented by the Japanese. [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNCOFJnpPGs Even though that's just a spoof, my grandma told me that there was a real show just like that in the fifties, except it was serious. Proud to be an American, knowing w...

I did a lot of really intensive research and the closest I could find to a name is "Girlfriend Experience" or "POV". They seem to be related mostly to porn but I suspect it may not be unknown in gravure either. I think I might check on /a/ or /jp/ next as Herr Tines suggested

Sad POV "Date" Videos like in "Video Girl Ai&

Hey gents, Remember the old anime "Video Girl Ai" where the kid rented a video and a girl popped out? Apparently this is based off a real genre of videos in Japan where a cute girl talks at the screen to the viewer as if they are on a date. I think that sometimes this is done in the contex...

It did have a good horror atmosphere, comparable to 'Rosemary's Baby'. But from what I've seen it may have shot its load too early and the looping narrative may not be as effective as a linear one in this case. I'll finish the series though; from what I'm hearing here it has ...

You can watch all 26 eps. on Amazon instant video for about $2 an episode. I just discovered this service a few days ago and it's all I've been doing. They have a fair-sized collection of anime.

When They Cry/Higurashi: Is it worth it? (MAJOR SPOILERS)

So I just watched the first five episodes on Amazon. It had an interesting premise even though the character development of the first four episodes was a little rushed. It started to get really interesting when the crazy girl Rena, who was tormenting the main character, implied that she was the only...
