like a serial killer

anonymous asked:

do you personally believe inuyashiki counts as horror genre?

I think it’s a subset of horror, though I don’t know if a term for this sub genre has ever been coined. Attack on Titan is part of the same group, as is Tokyo Ghoul, Parasyte, Gantz and Ajin.  I don’t follow anime fangroups, so if a term has stuck for these I’d be interested to know.

All of them take strong horror tropes and stuff them in to seinen or shonen, action narratives (though I think Inuyashiki extends beyond these ages). Parasyte is The Thing/Body Snatchers, Tokyo Ghoul begins with very familiar classic vampire cliches, etc.

I’ve read almost all of Inuyashiki and I see it as similar to the first Terminator, only the old man chooses to do good, and it’s the plucky youngster that doesn’t. Shishigami also fits in perfectly with Japanese serial killer films like Killers (Indonesian co-production I know), Himeanole, Cold Fish and Cure. He’s a villain that’s portrayed how a movie would present a character like that, not an anime. 

Halloween at Wayne Manor
  • Every kid in Gotham knows to hit up Wayne Manor on Halloween, they give you MULTIPLE REGULAR SIZED CANDY BARS!! none of this fun-size shit
  • They also have a separate bucket of small toys for children with complex food allergies 

  • Best decorations in town, it’s go hard or go home and Bruce never backs down from a challenge, cobwebs everywhere, GHOSTS! mother fukcing PUMPKINS!!!
  • Bruce isn’t allowed to answer the door because he lets all the kids dressed up as Batfam and Wonder Woman have as much candy as they want and gives dental floss to those dressed as clowns, also kids dressed as Superman but he’ll deny it
  • Damian:*Carves a pumpkin with a really ugly face* Drake! come at once! Tim: *Sigh* what? Damian:*Smirks and turns the pumpkin to face Tim* it’s you
  • Food fight in the kitchen with the scooped out pumpkin flesh
  • Almost everyone wears costumes to make Dick happy
  • Dick once forced Damian into a child’s Batman costume, Damian was outraged by the plastic Batarangs, Bruce totally didn’t have tears in his eyes fuck you
  • Jason never wears a costume no matter how hard Dick pouts at him, this leads to an array of replies when people ask why he’s not in costume e.g “My muscles are too big to fit in any costume” “I’m dressed as a sinner” “I’m dressed up as a serial killer. They look like everybody else” “I’m dressed as the miracle of life” “a pumpkin killed my parents, how dare you”
  • Tim once dressed as a Ghostbuster and wouldn’t stop trying to hoover up Jason and Damian
  • Stephanie and Cassandra always dress in matching or related costumes, it’s super fucking cute 
  • Dick: Where’s your outfit, Alfred?? Alfred: *pulls out a pair of rabbit ears and places them on his head* I am a bunny Master Grayson. Hop. Hop
  • Barbara dresses as a mermaid which AmAZES!! all the kids, cause it totally makes sense!!! her red hair which means she’s related to Ariel #kidlogic
  • Dick:*Dressed as Dracula* I want to SUCK YOUR BLOOD!! Jason: You can suck my di- Bruce: LANGUAGE!!
  • Batcow, Titus, Alfred the cat, and Goliath all have home made costumes made by Damian
  • Dick always gets sick from eating the most candy, he says he’s doing it to save everyone else from having cavities, he’s a dirty liar
  • Tim: *Walks around Walmart pointing to decorations* Spoopy
  • Jason: Raisins!??? RAISINS?? who the hell gives raisins on Halloween Bruce??? Monsters that’s who
  • Little kid: *See’s Jason as Red Hood on Halloween* what are you meant to be mr? Jason: I’m a used tampon Others: *through the comms* JASON!!!

Inktober Day 9: Take a song title that’s not meant to be scary, imagine it to be the title of a new horror movie. Draw the poster art for that new horror movie.

I chose to do the famous song “You’re The One That I Want” from the movie Grease. I just liked the idea of a mass serial killer stalking Sandy and Danny and wanting Sandy for himself. DunDunDaaahhh!!!
