The Haunting of Hill House Anonymous 3773[Reply]

How do you all feel about this show?
I loved it. I never expected the ending to be that way though. Episode 5 was amazing (& sad) with Nell at the end.

Anonymous 3775

Dunno, but I'm going to watch a few episodes tonight because of this thread so thanks.

Unless it SUCKS in which case I hate you.

Anonymous 3776

The show made me really sad. I came into it thinking it was just a horror but got my heart played with too

Anonymous 3778

Heh, okay, I'll watch it.

Anonymous 3779

I really like that it's a horror without the shitty, cheap jumpscares. A lot of it really taps into some of my own fears which is great. My only problem is that it's really heavy and at the end of a long day, I don't really feel like watching heavy things so I think I've only watched 2/3 episodes in total. I feel the same about Black Mirror which I also love but can't really force myself to watch anymore of.

I kept reading the manga despite this nonsense and all the asspulls that the author was throwing around, because I really liked the League of Villains more than the 1A class, but the moment they gave the loser kid a second power I dropped it.

It's actually a pretty good lesson, even if unintentionally. All our ideals about equality and hard work always crumble in the face of reality, where birth privilege and genetic advantages are king.

We had a thread for 2019 anime so I was thinking we could continue that with a thread for 2020 anime.

What seasonal anime are you watching? Is it any good?

Personally I'm watching the following:

>Pokemon 2019

It's been years since I've cared about anything related to Pokemon but the new series is really cute and I enjoy the SOL episodic adventures. Go is really cute. 8/10
>Mairimashita! Iruma-kun
A really fun show, it feels like it came out of the 2000s with it's style of humor and characters. The animation is a bit lacking but that doesn't matter too much for comedy anime. Watching it makes me kind of jealous because I want Iruma's life. 7/10
>Ishuzoku Reviewers
I'm not the target audience but it's an interesting premise and a funny comedy. The animation is pretty decent and the OP and ED are catchy. I do wish the main characters would stop sexually harassing the only non-prostitute girl in the show for the sake of comedy. 6/10
>Boku no Tonari ni Ankoku Hakaishin ga Imasu
The character designs and ED are cute but the humor is too mean-spirited for me at times, might drop. 3/10
I'm only watching because I play the mobile game, the characters are off model a lot and it looks like the rest of the episodes are getting significantly delayed because of production problems. The OP is nice at least. 4/10
>Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun
I'm not a fan of the "adapt the manga page by page" style, I get that the character designs and art style of the manga are complicated but the lack of animation is really distracting. At the same time the anime feels pretty rushed. The VAs of Hanako and Kou are really good so that's why I continue to watch. 4/10

It's been really hard for me to get into anime for a while, but I managed to get back into the swing of it. I only just recently got back into watching stuff, so there's a lot of stuff that I plan to watch compared to what I've actually watched so far.

I recently watched up to the most recent episode of ID:Invaded. It's like a modern setting, sci-fi detective drama. Without giving away too much, the main character is a person who basically helps track down serial killers by entering their subconscious. It can be a bit unrealistic at times, but its entertaining and treats itself seriously most of the time. It's definitely teen-oriented, though. If you've watched you'll know what I mean. That's by no means a bad thing, but it definitely shows in some scenes.

Just recently, though, I started watching Somali to Mori no Kamisama. It's about a little girl who's been abandoned and taken in by a forest golem. The dynamic between them is a father-daughter one. While Somali acts really childish and cute, her "dad," the golem, is calculating, but very protective of her. The setting is sort of medieval fantasy. The artwork is really great too. All around, I really like it.

I watched the first episode of Kyokou Suiri, but I don't know whether or not I'll continue watching it. I figured it'd be more romcom looking at the tags, but it seems to be more of a Japanese mythology sorta show. I'll probably watch a few more episodes, but idk.

Early on, I also watched the first few episodes of Koisuru Asteroid, which I found super cute. It's a typical sorta high school club anime, but I like it. Also watched the first episode of Eizouken ni wa Te wo Dasuna! It's another sort of club anime, but it's really stylistic and cool. It's definitely someone's passion project and it shows; really cool to watch! Also saw the first episode of Murenase! Seton Gakuen. It's another high school anime… But with animal students! It's quirky, but I like it.

Definitely a better season than previous ones, but it's not like I've been keeping up to date.

right now I'm reading The Sun Also Rises and David Copperfield. I reread Hemingway's The Torrents of Spring last month, short but fun read.

With respect to writing, I haven't been keeping up with my journal during quarantine even though I have all the time to do it. I think I just don't want to reflect on how shitty life is right now. It would be good to have some primary sources though to look back at in the future.

So far I've read The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath and I'm reading War and Peace bit by bit. War and Peace is easy reading in terms of its prose and the difficulty for me is more about the commitment involved, so I would encourage anyone to read it. My next "read" is Ways of Seeing by John Berger. It was originally a TV show, but it's still nice to experience the content in a book format.

I've also been reading this collection of American Poetry from the 70's. It's long, but reading poems is fast. I like it because for each author, I look them up online after I read their poetry so I feel like I'm getting a crash course in American poetry which I don't know too much about.

I'd been meaning to read The Coming Insurrection by The Invisible Committee for a few months, after I bought it as well as the books following it, To Our Friends and Now. I started reading it yesterday and finished it today, a speed which I can barely bring myself to finish anything. I had a productive day aside from that as well, listened to an album I'd been meaning to listen to (Tales of a Grasswidow by Cocorosie) and went for an hour-long jog. I'm going to try and read To Our Friends (which is twice as long) soon.

I'd recommend it to basically anyone, unequivocally.

The goblins in the books aren’t anti-semetic. Notice that arguments for that only ever focus on movie stills and don’t quote the books because there are no passages that hint at it. That’s hardly her fault. There might well be history of goblins and jews but it’s clear she was unaware of it and the book was written before the internet was widespread.
I’ve also seen a few Chinese people point out that Chang is a common Chinese surname in the UK and that the Cantonese reading of 秋 is Cho and can be a first name.

For some reason people lack any 'depth perception' when it comes to the intricacies of an issue. They don't take anything into consideration but what's put infront of them.

Oldschool style animu without anything flashy or unrealistic. Most kids would say it's boring but I think it's comfy.

(This does contain magic, but it's very grounded in realism.) Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara is about a girl who cannot see colours, and she is sent back in time to meet her grandmother when she's her age to try to find her happiness in the world to allow her to see in colour again. It's mostly a slice of life with a bit of romance and some light magical themes. Really cute and easy to watch.

>an asshole who doesn't love her back
Can you please elaborate on that?
He doesn't love her. He's still hoping to hook up with his highschool crush. He doesn't want to get serious with haru because he knows that he'll break up with haru for morinome. But I get his point of view.
Morinome wants the guy to make the first move. Uozumi doesn't want to pressure her to make a choice.
Now we're waiting to see who is going to make a choice. Only haru and hayakawa know what they want and honestly I hope they both win their love.
The real redpoll was dropped by morinome's friend.
>You dwell too much on your past, teenage relationship and you're most likely over-idealising it.
Dude there's free pussy literally waiting for you like a dog for a bone and you're still chasing broken goods. Just let her be with a substitute of her ex bf. Hayakawa must have some kind of Stockholm syndrome to cling to her so much…
I'm sure in the end she'll finally let go of her dead bf and accept uozomi to make a perfect happy ending.

My point is- uozomi did nothing wrong to haru… Apart from not turning her down and giving her hope for a relationship. But that's what this anime is about.

I was watching some Natsume Yuujinchou episodes today and boy it is so comfy. I'm not sure if it's what you're looking for, but it does a great job at tackling my depression.
Another comfy show that cures my depression is Non Non Biyori.

Help I am playing Animal Crossing Wild World but I assume this works the same across all games so I hope someone can help me: I have one cat that has been sick for five days. I gave her medicine four days and she is still sick. Do I have to do anything else to help her or should I just keep bringing her medicine every day? Is it normal for them to be sick for so long?

I used to really be into BL. It was the second most important thing in my life, to the point where I learned moon just to read it and scanlate it, and I had read a decent amount of titles. But I stopped once I got a bf. I think I was using BL as escapism and to simulate love in my own life, and now that I have it for real I can't be bothered to keep up with it. But I still genuinely enjoy reading it, I just wish I had the motivation to keep doing it.

As for recs, I think Yuki to Matsu was the most well written BL manga I had ever read, the one I have ever been the most emotionally invested in was Saiyaku no Jinsei, and the love and admiration I felt for Hayakawa Nojiko's works was indescribable. Her stuff literally cured my suicidal depression.
God I wish I had the time and motivation to go back.
