needed some way to vent about this, and i always love reading about other people's raging hate boners for (insert x title here). this isn't limited to books alone - it can be a show, comic, webcomic, etc. as long as it has your blood boiling almost every time you see it and you can't begin to imagine how anyone could get into it.

i'll start us off: "a matter of life and death" (https://tapas.io/series/A-Matter-of-Life-and-Death) is kind of the brainless beauty of western BL. now, it didn't start off that way, but between the author deciding to start acting like a spoiled brat instead of taking responsibility for her growing fanbase during the past year, and the story itself taking an olympic nosedive into overwrought, melodramatic, needlessly vindictive (while somehow still failing to deliver all the emotional punches during actually appropriate scenes), everything-that-makes-BL-shit territory.

now, as a disclaimer, i will admit that i'm not a fan of BL in general. i've seen way too many works that portray stuff like rape, abuse, etc. way too voyeuristically for my comfort, and even in more lighthearted series it usually feels like the authors don't know how guys interact with other people, let alone how gay guys do it. it's just not for me. but for fuck's sake, even i can recognize that BL fans deserve better than this.

Why are we meant to care about how unethical it is for a government to try and forcefully rehabilitate violent criminals, even if they're only 15?

What's the other option? Stick them in jail and make them worse? ACO isn't posing a thought-provoking question.

No. 62198

The way I interpret it, the question is whether morality or immorality is inherent to humans and whether they’re capable of acquiring moral values as they mature. The ethics of forced rehabilitation are only a part of that.

I just finished Rebecca and I HATED it, good Lord what a waste of time. Rebecca is a classic gothic "suspense" novel. (I had originally been told this was a horror novel, but it's barely even suspense).

summary (including spoilers) and why I hated it:
Rebecca is about an unnamed woman who marries a recently widowed rich man. She goes to live with him and everyone is always talking about Rebecca (his recently dead wife who allegedly drowned). The servants and friends are all obsessed with Rebecca and keep talking to the protagonist about her, so naturally the protagonist compares herself to Rebecca. It turns out (shocker) that Maxim actually murdered Rebecca, because she had allegedly slept around and was shitty to him. When he tells this to the protagonist, she says "only one thing matters now, that he never loved Rebecca, he only loved me". Yes, after he told her he MURDERED his first wife, the only important thing is that he didn't love her? What the actual fuck? And how did she know he wasn't lying about all that? Anyways some suspicions about her death comes up and Maxim goes on trial, although her death was ruled a suicide. But even before Max was acquitted, he said he was happy he killed Rebecca. And then it turned out that Rebecca, right before she was murdered, had found out she was infertile and terminally ill, and that she WANTED Maxim to kill her. This upset Max/the protagonist because it meant "Rebecca had won". Then their mansion, Manderley, burned down at the end, though it never said who burnt it down. Why is this a classic? It's fucking god awful.

I've liked it too! Quite a few really fun anime came out this winter, I'm glad to see something different this season.
That being said, was anyone else slightly weirded out by some scenes/imagery with Hanako-kun? I wish the series didn't have those slight sexual undertones, even if it was refreshing to see something more appealing to "female gaze".

Nayrt but I feel exactly the same way about the sexual undertones. I knew nothing about the manga or the anime and really didn't expect those questionable parts in the opening. The thing is I would have been less weirded out by it if the characters didn't look so young. They are children to me so it was just a really weird 1st episode. It was super pretty but the animation was also really lacking (like that fight at the end ??). Don't think I'll continue.

Preferably from a fan and non-fan perspective

There have been threads on AHS done before but they're all at least 2 years old

What do you think of AHS? What are your favorite and least favorite seasons? Do you think it will stand the test of time? What are some things you love and hate about it?




Personally here are my opinions:

Pros
>Season 1, 2, and 3 were all interesting and had captivating actors and interesting storylines. Coven did this the best with the dynamic interactions between historical figures and other characters but that might be because historical New Orleans is one of those places you can rarely fuck up on.
>I like how they don't shy away from using older women actors and some unconventionally attractie people. It makes all the charm better.
>Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Angela Basset, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Kathy Bates are all GREAT actors.

Honestly I'm so cynical that at this point I just watch it to see what a trainwreck it is. I liked 1984 more than I expected (Emma Roberts, Zach Villa, and John Carroll Lynch really stole the show) but overall it was just kind of messy and I hate when they do the mid-season time skip.
Overall – favorite seasons are Asylum, Coven, and Cult. Everyone hypes up Murder House but I never really got into it – maybe just cause I can't stand Dylan McDermott. Also Lady Gaga's character was a mess in Hotel and I'm glad they didn't have her as a major role again.

No. 69017

I loved the first three seasons,freak show was meh, with Hotel I liked the side characters and the backstory but I absolutely despised the whole Gaga glam vampiress plot, it was cheesy af and had no substance.
Cult and Roanoke were alright and I stopped watching Apocalypse after ep 2 because it feels like a fanfic. Also I just found out theres a new season thanks to this thread.

Overall, Jessica Lance should've stayed

No. 69022

I'm in a rush so I'll read this thread properly later but I just wanted to chime in and say- I've only watched the first season, it was a fucking mess. The overacting was godawful and I'm not sure why its praised so much.

No. 69431

AHS is a weird show. It always, always looks amazing, costume and set design are on point, as well as music choice. Each series/season starts consistently strong, and takes a pretty interesting and unique idea to lead with which they then completely disregard. By the second episode of each, you know shit's going to be a mess. No one who works there can write worth a damn and the showrunners don't give any fucks. It's the ultimate in style over substance.

Like I enjoy looking at animated gifs, but after Murder House and Asylum you could tell it was never going to be much in the way of story.

No. 70124

Yessss I love this thread already.
Season 1: one of the best seasons in my opinion, everything about it is very captivating and seamless. The only problem is that the Harmons are dislikable as fuck kek
Season 2:I think this is the best season, its genuinely horrific because this shit happened to gay women and the supernatural element Is random but fitting for the era.

Season3: coven characters are cool but the story is a mess. I can't even recall what even happened and this impacted Apocalypse
season 4: I felt the story was a mess and nothing about this season was memorable to me
I didn't watch hotel but I don't even know if it was worth watching

Season 6: I thought it was hilarious but it was kinda like a joke season. It was totally predictable.
Season 7: I actually liked the first half of cult a lot. American horror story had to get creative without a supernatural element

Season 8: I enjoyed some parts of apocalypse but that shit was a mess. A MESS.

I find it funny how there’s this girl who is lying about having dissociative identity disorder. It reminds me of being in my early teens on Tumblr and almost everyone I followed who was around my age as “had” bpd. She’s a minor so I guess this is just a phase of wanting to be unique, lol.

I kind of feel bad for the amount of hate she’s getting, but at the same time it’s like… you shouldn’t lie about this kind of stuff. And what’s ridiculous is there are people who believe her. She literally “switches” the same time the music changes. Is that not sus? I just know in a few years she’s going to look back at this moment in her life and cringe.
