  1. Higurashi is a good one. Two seasons, make sure to watch Higurashi... before Higurashi... Kai. Shinsekai Yori is more of a thriller, but it has a dark atmosphere throughout, and some fantastic horror parts. Corpse Party Tortured Souls is like a 'splatter horror', if you're into that.
  2. Those busts look fantastic, but that's definitely a lot of money ๐Ÿ˜ฎ --- I have 13 figures total: Five nendoroids, four 'prize figures' and four normal scale figures. The nendoroids are Reimu, Koishi and Patchouli from Touhou Project, and a set of Lucky Star x Fate/ ones. The scale figures are Yukari and Remilia from Touhou, Ryuzu from Clockwork Planet and Astolfo from Fate/. Prize figures are Lucky Star's Konata, Kancolle's Shimakaze, GochiUsa's Chino and RailDex's Misaka. I got the nendoroids, all prize figures and Yukari at some cons here. The rest were ordered online, on two Dutch stores. I missed out on the Astolfo PO, so I imported that one from Japan. Right now, I'm waiting on the release of this Atelier Rorona nendoroid, which I preordered a couple of weeks ago.
  3. I'm finishing up Atelier Sophie, a relaxing crafting / gathering JRPG. Also going through Nier: Automata, where I'm on playthrough C. Both on the PS4 I've also started Atelier Shallie on the vita, where I'm just past the first main boss.
  4. Hi hello! Welcome! I'm pretty new here as well, hope you'll enjoy your time here! ๐Ÿ˜€
  5. AngelMaker - Radiance In The Light Of A Dying Sun I've been listening their new album recently, this one's my favourite.
  6. Mirai Nikki is awful in almost every way. Yuno Gasai is an atrocious character, and "yandere" is one of the worst archetypes. Railgun is by far the worst RailDex anime. Index might be rushed, but it at least resembles its source material. (I haven't seen season 3 yet, though) Charlotte's ending song is the best part of the show.
  7. Listening a lot of music as well Watching anime Playing video games Playing guitar Amateur astronomy Collecting CDs Attending concerts
  8. There are a lot of smaller things you can do with animation, that would be tricky to pull off in "in real life" comedies or SoL shows. There's of course exaggerating features for comedic effect. But think about using backgrounds to highlight certain things or reactions. Another example. Animation also arguably makes it easier to set the mood using colour. It can give studios their own, unique, visual style that's instantly recognizable.
  9. The Higurashi manga adaptation, specifically the "Eye Opening arc", which is the fifth arc overall. Found out there's a store that sells manga in a nearby city, so I browsed through there. They had almost the entire series, which I slowly collected. I like how every arc is illustrated by a different artist. It gives them their own feel, and makes sense in a weird way, with Higurashi's overall story. It also adds quite some details that were in the original VNs, but got left out of the anime.
  10. Working, for the most part. If this heat keeps up, and we get another summer like last year, things might be kind of slow again. We've already noticed that today, but restaurants don't seem to benefit from this kind of heat. I'm planning on getting a new mount for my telescope next week. With a bit of luck, I should be able to start getting into astrophotography after that ๐Ÿ˜€ Also have a few concerts planned, so I'm looking forward to those ๐Ÿ˜€
  11. Comedy / slice of life and iyashikei. I like cute, comfy, relaxing stuff ๐Ÿ˜€ If you can look past the animation, definitely try Higurashi. The first season is straight up mystery / horror. The second season (Higurashi... Kai) is more of a thriller, where everything comes together. Shinsekai Yori has a dark, unsettling tone all throughout the series. It approaches its horror elements in a more psychological way, never getting really gory.

    Thanks for the welcome! Not yet. I've hear numerous good things about it, but haven't gotten around to watching it yet. Should be right up my alley, though ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks for the Kemurikusa recommendation as well!
