MORE Adult Animated Films You Can Watch Instead of Sausage Party
  • Waltz With Bashir: An Israeli animated autobiographical war-documentary film about director Ari Folman attempting to recover repressed memories from his time as a soldier in the Lebanon War of 1982. This is a very dark film that explores many heavy themes throughout. It was actually quite controversial in some Arabian countries, being officially banned in Lebanon.
  • Persepolis: It's about a young girl growing up in the middle of the 1979 Iranian revolution and the political conflicts and government corruption she dealt with at that time, covering mostly the first 20 years of her life. This film was controversial too, with Iranian government only allowing a limited release and Bangkok's International Film Festival dropping it completely, as well as being protested against after an airing on a Tunisian television network, and being completely banned in Lebanon.
  • Mary and Max: A stop motion film about two strangers, an adult with Asperger's Syndrome and a little girl who lives in an abusive environment, who one day become pen-pals. It's actually a very profound film that deals with themes such as friendship, isolation, abuse, suicide, mental illness, and more. The film has many heavy moments as well as many light-hearted and funny ones, having just as much drama as it has comedy.
  • Strange Frame, Love and Sax: A 2012 cutout animated science-fiction musical film starring Tara Strong and Claudia Black, about a lesbian couple from another planet who fall in love after meeting each other while escaping a riot and form a band with an ultimate goal of worldwide fame, but are eventually split apart. Many of the characters in this movie are LGBTQA+, and all of them are of color.
  • A Scanner Darkly: An American animated sci-fi thriller film about a future where America lost the war on drugs and everyone is under constant police surveillance, directed by Richard Linklater and starring Robert Downey Jr., Keanu Reeves, and Winona Ryder, based on Phillip K. Dick's novel of the same name.
  • Waking Life: Also directed by Richard Linklater, an American animated drama documentary about a guy who constantly finds himself placed in various dream-like realities, most of which have people who have conversations with him about philosophical topics questioning the nature of reality and existence itself.
  • Wrinkles/Arrugas: A Spanish animated drama film about a retired bank manager suffering from Alzheimer's who is taken into an assisted living home and makes a new friend, who together try to disguise Emilio's worsening illness from doctors so that they don't transfer him to the top floor.
  • Princess: A Dutch drama film about a missionary named Augustus whose sister, a former porn star named 'Princess', leaves behind her daughter after she dies of a drug overdose. Augustus adopts her daughter and embarks on a violent mission to destroy all existing evidence of Princess's career. Probably the most explicit one of all of these films, not for the faint of heart due to it's themes and graphic nature.
  • Fantastic Planet: French stop-motion film about a group of aliens who get captured and kept as pets by another, more spiritually/technologically advanced species of aliens, but organize a mass rebellion after one of the aliens from the advanced planet educates the other spieces, which is forbidden. This film contains very surreal, psychedelic imagery that's similar to Classic Sesame Street, The Electric Company, and Yellow Submarine.

i just really hope there’s a good explanation for this?? Yousef kissing Noora just makes no sense in accordance with his character and how he has been written/shown in relation to Sana. This just feels like bad writing and an unnecessary shock factor. Like this is something an American teen drama would do. There’s just no context for it!

NieR Automata Creator’s Q&A Session at GameStart 2017 Main Stage

What is the inspiration and meaning behind YoRHa Costume Design?

Yoko Taro: We created the black clothes similar to corset that people in Japan usually wears when they attend funerals. In a sense, the characters already prepared for the death. They also have blindfolds which means they’re not able to see the reality of the situation. But in the end they slowly took out the blindfolds and starts become more aware of what’s happening around them.

Is there any movie or books that give an inspiration to NieR Automata?

Yoko Taro: I got inspiration from some media such as Evangelion (anime) and 24 (american drama). If I try to took it from a more big titles, then people will start accusing me. So I took it from more smaller titles.

Do you hate your character, or just want to torture your character?

Yosuke Saito: I love NieR Automata’s characters very much, especially Popola and Devola
Yoko Taro: I love all characters I made, especially all the females.
Yosuke Saito: So you don’t like 9S?
Yoko Taro: No, I don’t like 9S

If you offered a chance to get a big budget to make a game, but you must make a family friendly game, will you accept it?

Yoko Taro: If I got a huge sum of money for making a family friendly game, I’ll just use a small portion of it for development and run away with the rest of money.

When will you do a dating sim game?

Yoko Taro: As long as there is money, I’ll make it immediately. If you guys want it, please keep sending email to Square Enix. Every characters will die though.

What is your favorite joke ending?

Yosuke Saito: I like many endings, but the one I hate is probably ending K.
Yoko Taro: I created all endings to be a happy ending, there’s no joke ending. Every ending has its own resolution.

Will Emil ever get to rest in peace?

Yoko Taro: I’m okay with the idea of putting Emil to rest in peace, but you’ll never seen him again in the series. Are you okay with that?
Audience: No
Yoko Taro: Then I’ll keep torturing Emil in that sense

LGBT+ MASTERLIST PROJECT BY ROCIO @nuevayor

Week One: TELEVISION
Week Three: BOOKS
Week Four: POETRY
Week Five: MUSIC
Week Six: COMICS
Week Seven: DOCUMENTARIES
Week Eight: PODCASTS
Week Nine: YOUTUBERS
Week Ten: HISTORY
Week Eleven: RESOURCES
Week Twelve: THANK YOU + GOODBI

Week Two: Welcome back to the LGBT+ Masterlist Project

Before I get into this week’s category I want to thank you all so much for the critical support and contributions you’ve given me since making my first masterlist on LGBT+ characters in television. These masterlists will only get better as you help me along my journey to finding more LGBT+ media. Feel free to inbox me, to suggest and add commentary to my growing list. I can’t promise I’ll edit the lists regularly (I am a tiny college student; you can imagine my stress) but I will certainly share for my followers to see. It’s all still greatly appreciated.

This week, I tried to bring down the list to be exclusive to only movies with leading and supporting LGBT+ roles. I tried to avoid movies with cis people playing trans characters, and altogether tried to avoid problematic representation, which should never go unnoticed or without criticism. Please note, I have not seen all of these movies, so I can’t be the judge of how good the representation is. This is why I welcome you to respectfully inbox me or reblog with comments. 

Thanks again to @mightyachillis for the gifset. Next week’s category: LGBT+ BOOKS

Recently Read Fic Recs - 9/24/17

If you know of any good new fics, feel free to send them to me! I’m always looking for new fics to read :)

1. Chasing Empty Spaces by Lis (79k, E)

The year is 1934 and Harry Styles was to inherent the largest tobacco firm in the south. His parents have picked out the “perfect” girl for him to marry and he has the privilege of receiving the highest education possible. The problem was, Harry hadn’t realized he didn’t actually want any part of that future until he met a mechanic named, Louis Tomlinson.

2. Turning Page by Anonymous (67k, M)

“What’s your name?”

“Harry.” He draws the word out slowly, hesitantly - like he’s not sure about it. The guy knots his hands behind his back. “Harry Twist.”

“Right,” Niall says, eyes lingering suspiciously on Harry before looking back to Louis. “You wanna buy Harry a drink?”

Louis lets his eyes drip back to Harry, to his wide eyes and the way his shoulders curve down. He really is pretty – Louis will be the first one to admit it and the last one to ever say it out loud. Louis almost smirks and his lips twitch as he tilts his head, “Not particularly, no.”

AU: Harry Styles tries to get lost in a place he’s never been.  Louis Tomlinson has been perfecting the art of being lost for years. What they don’t expect to find is each other.

3. A Few Very Good Mistakes by louisandthealien (12k, NR)

He almost wishes there were a better story.

“Fucked up pop star ends five day bender by wandering into a dive bar alone and passing out in public.”

That would’ve generated press, he thinks, and if there’s one thing that’s constantly on his mind (or more accurately, on the mind of everyone else around him) it’s that all press is good press, and good press is good press but bad press is great press.

Besides, he’s 25 and trying to do the whole transition from boyband to solo pop star. He’s pretty sure a press-fueled meltdown is, like, a right of passage.

The truth, alas, is a whole lot more boring.

Louis falls asleep in Harry’s bar. Harry takes him home to hang out.

4. A Million One, A Million Two (a Hundred More Will Never Do) by LittleLostPieces (42k, E)

While Harry doesn’t want to spend his final year at Wilshire Academy sharing his space with yet another idiot roommate, he figures he could have ended up with a lot worse than Niall. As the school’s newest scholarship student, Niall provides a fresh perspective on Harry’s privileged life, as well as a grounding presence when Harry’s other friends, Liam and Zayn, are acting like lunatics. Most importantly, though, Niall introduces him to Louis, a cynical townie with zero interest in spending his time around entitled boarding school kids. Convincing Louis that he’s more than a trust fund and a charming smile won’t be easy, but Harry’s never been one to back down from a challenge.

An AU loosely inspired by the short-lived WB drama, Young Americans, and the Gotta Be You music video.

5. One-Two-Three What Are We Fighting For by taggiecb (25k, E)

“Do you know why these people are protesting this man’s funeral?” Louis continues, letting his frustration out on this motionless creature in front of him. “Because of who he loved. But I am the bad guy because I am trying to protect those people in there from these people out here. I am the bad guy because I am standing in leather pants and drive a motorbike, and those pricks are ‘Christians’.” He raises his fingers to quote.

The sudden motion makes the man flinch, just slightly. No one would notice if they weren’t staring so intently as Louis is now. Louis notices though, and he takes some sort of satisfaction that he got even a slight rise from the man.

“We aren’t the bad guys here. And yet who would you be arresting if something went down right now? You know the answer to that don’t you? Just moving my hand made you flinch. Those idiots are jumping around behind you, waving signs and God knows what else, and you aren’t so concerned with them. But one move of my hand, and you were ready to pull a weapon on me. Don’t deny it.”

6. Ricochets by Myinnerfangilr (1k, GA, MCD)

Harry used to love sitting on the single iron bench facing the water. He would roll the stones under his feet, looking for the flattest ones. Placing them on his lap, he would clean away the dirt, before offering them to Louis: “Four ricochets and you get a kiss.”
“Four ricochets and you marry me.”
“Do four ricochets, Louis, and I might finally give you an answer.”

A story of love and grief.
