Yep, just look how many people are going ape over the whole Janet Jackson Superbowl tit slip.

Unhappy Disturbing Anime?!?

Hmmm...

I just recently watched an anime series and watched a whole bunch of people get slaughterd. Now normally this wouldn't bother me... BUT watching a little girl getting stabbed numerous times before finally having her stomach ripped open while all along shes begging for her life... I find this a little disturbing.

I can't believe no-one seemed to mention what type of series it was, I heard it was great... but as you can see it would have been nice if they mentioned the little things that made the story so great.

Because of this.. im rather hesitant to download any anime. Are any of the other new series like this...? and why do they make series like this? any ideas?

Just before I go. You should watch Narutaru its a GREAT anime series, with lots of cute characters and if the intro is anything to go by, its Azumanga mixed with Pokemon. Watch the series, you'd be suprised how it ends.

If u named the anime series u watched, it would've helped...


Not that many shows like that though.

Try something like Chrno Crusade or Full Metall Alchemist, they're a bit "safer"


As to why they make these kind of series......myself I like dark anime series. Things getting really messed up. Kindof shows the possible brutality of human beeings. makes u think. Reality might be worse u know!

Yeah, thats sound a bit too "extreme", but what serie is it then? what the name of it?

I'm glad I stopped watching the series at 11. It seemed to be dragging on too much, and I wasn't interested in the characters at all. I was just waiting hoping that something would happen. If I continued to watch the last 2 episodes only to find out that that was what awaited me... I wouldn't have been a happy camper. >_<

It is disturbing that people want to know about series where little girl is stabbed to death.


To me "dark" anime is just one genre. Sometimes I watch romantic series, then get tired of it and switch to more darker themes and after that maybe some mecha and so on...

If you want disturbing anime then watch Jin-Roh or Serial Experiments Lain, at least they were disturbing to me. (Both are licensed)

Uh, I'm pretty sure he's talking about Narutaru. I'm not certain (since I haven't watched the series yet), but judging from his sarcastic ending comment on the show, I'm guessing that's the show he's refering to.

I don't think that's sarcasm, just a suggestion. But I haven't seen Narutaru.

If it is sarcasm, it's terribly misplaced.

As to why people would make it series like that, I have no idea. Try asking the original author instead of asking us.

As for are there any other anime like this...

In terms of sheer psychological disturbingness,

NaruTaru


wins the thread.

That is not NaruTaru.

There were not a whole bunch of people getting slaughtered.

No girl got stabbed numerous times, nor was she begging for her life.

What happened was actually a whole lot more disturbing than that, actually...

The anime is child's play compared to the manga (and the later volumes).

Ok, let's add MAJOR SPOILERS. Don't read if you intend to read the manga.

Spoiler:


Anyways Kitoh is working on a new series, called Bokura No, and I have the feeling it's going to be on the same drift as Narutaru.

Stay away from Koroshiya, the anime and the manga. Just a fair warning, if you don't like disturbing stuff. It's just nasty.

so someone tricked you into watching narutaru and you're trying to do the same? Narutaru wasn't that bad, I've seen worse but it's your own damn fault for not checking out what the anime was about before watching it, it could easily have been night shift nurses or some other disgusting shit eating crap

With a name like that, I guess you can't go wrong.

In case you wonder, Koroshiya means Trained Killer.

Haha...

I've heard of Night Shift Nurses, but thats not exactly an anime now is it (Hentai). In regards to my sarcastic comments I truly apologise.

Narutaru is FAR from Azumanga + Pokemon combined, although the intro does give you that type of impression, in reality though its one of the many disturbing animes out there.

I've heard season 2 of Narutaru is comming out, for those of you intrested in disturbing anime, i'd recommend it hands down.

Personally i like to watch light hearted anime, and usually stay away from dark anime series. But in my search for anime i've happened to stumble across nearly all of the dark anime series out there, and since i've purchased or downloaded them.. I usually end up watching them.

If you don't like disturbing anime, heres a list of anime i've watched and found quite disturbing :-

Serial Experiments Lain, Boogiepop Phantom, Key the Metal Idol, Saikano, Perfect Blue, Evangelion (The last few eps + Extras), Grave of the Fire Flies (very VERY sad story). Theres quite a few more disturbing anime series but i've only watched these ones so can't really comment on the rest.

Well I guess its back to watching Prince of Tennis, at least I can watch that in peace with no worrys of it transforming in a dark anime.... Although it is an anime... Hence, I wouldn't be suprised if the main character snapped and used his tennis racket as a deadly weapon slicing and dicing the opposition.

I wonder..

Narutaru's opening is an exercise in dissonance, both with the disparity of the anime and the happiness of the opening and with the actual animation in the opening itself.

The series itself is shocking, is disturbing, is nasty, and isn't for everyone. Don't let the chibi opening fool you.

On the other hand, if you didn't pick up on how shocking and disturbing the anime was getting by episode 3 or 4, you're not going to get away with blaming the series, you're just not frigging paying attention. Seriously.
Spoiler:
You can't honestly blame the series when you're ignoring the warning signs, you know?
