your favorite story Anonymous 28707
What is your favorite story and why?
Could be a book, a game, anime, show, movie - even your own work.
Stories that have truly had an affect on you.
The Handmaiden (2016), but it's one of many… It's really difficult to pick only one.
Kamikaze Girls was the first time something truly resonated with me. I have adored stories before and they have affected me but Momoko was the first character I have ever related to. The movies ending really makes me hopeful towards my own life
undertale (2015) made me into who i am today.
I just realized that 2015 was 7 years ago…
I forget the name of it but the plot is that a group of girls from some girls' school or something go on a trip to some meadow and outcropped cliff and some girl disappears into the mountain and whatever, and some other girl kills herself. Very homoerotic too.
Oh yeah it was called Picnic at Hanging Rock
I think the girl kills herself. I kind of forget. Honestly the movie is kind of trippy
In Ireland we have the old legend of Cú Chullain. It's the story of a man needs to travel to a kingdom but the place he needs to go through is guarded by a giant Irish wolf hound. When the wolf hound attacks him, he uses a slither (a leather bound iron ball used in hurling) to slay it. He launches the slither down to hounds throat using his hurl. He then goes to the kingdom and ends up becoming the new guard dog of the kingdom, Cú Chullain being his new name (literally "hound of Chullain")
OP image is apt, Haibane Renmei is a great anime, I watched it recently. I really enjoyed the ending, I'm glad it didn't end in a sad way even tho i cried
If you mean a story itself regardless of medium I'd say The count of Monte Cristo. Being such an old story but so timeless and interesting makes it have so much merit for me.
Apt is another word for 'appropriate', like, in relation to something. "OP image is appropriate [for the thread]"
The Old Man and the Sea is my favorite book. It is simple and clean and sad. I feel like I can understand the old man and his struggle.
I'd probably never venture into writing and reading if not for this gem.
Yojimbo and Seven Samurai. And The Hidden Fortress. Not my ALL-TIME favorites but they're so fucking good.
Zatoichi is good too. Medieval Japan manages to be both degenerate and comfy.
Samefag i had a good cry to the ost the other day, the nostalgia trip is unreal. Funnily enough I never even played it. Just watched the danandphil, pewdiepie, markiplier and jacksepticeye playthroughs. Never joined the fandom (my internet usage did not extend beyond yt then) but I made a lot of shitty fanart.
Toshiro Mifune was so fucking hot
