No sorry, nothing really comes to mind... I try to avoid stuff like that. Maybe Dokumushi series? It's pretty trashy

Hey! Thanks for fr. Can you repeat what you said? Something about one-shots stack (I can only see half of the message)
Beatnik Feb 18, 6:54 AM
Thanks. *thumbs up*

I remember there being a cosmic horror stack, but they are very loose recs... Doesn't even have the most obvious ones.

Urasekai Picnic might fit, but I also don't think it's that good, and it doesn't seem all that well received either. It's most similar to the book I mentioned, Annihilation, as well as the old Russian book The Roadside Picnic, which was an influence for the popular game Stalker and the Tarkovsky film (I guess that was an adaptation, but it's a lot different). These are sometimes seen as kind of cosmic horror adjacent.

I might be able to give better recs if you specify what it is about the cosmic horror you like. Is it dread of the space itself, which seemingly can't be escaped? Is it the imagery of the dimension they enter into? All of that? Something else?

Hmm... there's probably not much to mention in terms of anime. There are some mediocre Lovecraft adaptations in anime, usually stop motion. C Danchi and Aragne are probably the closest, but I don't recommend either. You might find them interesting, but I can only suggest checking a trailer to see for yourself. They're short. A lot of series have elements like that but only encompasses a small part of it, like Berserk, for example.

Films that come to mind are Endless and the Void. I guess Triangle, but that's more of a basic Sisyphean take, I think. The former is actually a horror comedy, but it does something similar with cosmic horror as Amrita. The latter I don't remember too well and didn't care for much, but has good imagery. Maybe Mandy? That same director's Beyond the Black Rainbow might fit. Also, Color Out of Space with Cage (LOL). Stuart Gordon had a few like From Beyond.

Literature is probably your best bet. I don't remember all of the names at the moment for the newer cosmic horror authors, but some of Laird Barron's stories are decent. Maybe select Brian Evenson and probably his Dead Space novelization (I think the original game is cosmic horror, but maybe not what you're looking for). Maybe the first Annihilation book. Thomas Ligotti, perhaps. All Tomorrows is interesting for a more evolution-based take on the subject.

Maybe some others will come to mind.

thank you for accepting my fr.

Amrita is the prequel to Aragne. The apartment complex is featured in both films. The last few minutes of Amrita are meant as a tie-in to Aragne. Some prequels are meant to be watched afterwards, but I feel if you watch this prequel first or not doesn't matter. They're mostly loosely connected other than the tie-in. I haven't seen Aragne in quite a while, so I'm not sure if Amrita makes it any more comprehensible, lol.

I think it's fine so far (currently finishing season 2), but from the little I know about the seasons I've yet to watch, it sounds like it'll be declining soon.

Np! I really loved that short OVA, it was a good watch, though its not for everyone. I think it did good. XD

It's actually nice seeing someone critical as you, appreciate the criminally underappreciated Bullbuster. I tip my Fedora hat to you, my dear friend.
