i was convinced this would end with the guy giving it a cig
fuan no tane is awesome. it manages to have jumpscares (of a sort) in a completely static comic. relative to junji ito, the only horror mangaka a lot of people are familiar with, i’d say fuan no tane is a lot less *gross*, but maybe scarier?
i guess one way to describe it might be to say that junji ito’s things are about normal people falling into extraordinary, grotesque circumstances. fuan no tane features a little bit of something extraordinary or grotesque dropping into a normal person’s life in places or situations that would be totally mundane otherwise, like a window, this guy taking a smoke break on a balcony, a staircase, a sign on a wall, etc . 
junji ito’s been compared to lovecraft a lot, and i think that’s pretty accurate. not just because they both write WEIRD HORROR, but the general theme and direction of their stories (people aimlessly spirallng into grotesque cosmic horror beyond their control to meet uncertain offscreen fates) 
fuan no tane’s more like (good) creepypasta.

Fuan no Tane is a GREAT. I offered it as an option for the graphic novel club’s manga week and nearly everyone read it and reported back to me that it make it hard for them to sleep at night, but they wanted more (so I pointed the kids towards Fuan no Tane Plus). I think what really works about it is that the events are just mildly unsettling. just creepy enough to put you a little on-edge, since it’s nothing hugely out of the ordinary most of the time. things that your brain could trick you into thinking are real when you’re very tired. and the fact that the things are never explained just make them creepier, because you can fill in the gaps with whatever scares you the most. 

man I adore Fuan no Tane.

Fuan no Tane is hands down one of my favorite horror manga, and a big inspiration of mine when I try to write horror.
Plus its fun to me that there’s such obvious visual themes to the “monsters”. Not that this is uncommon! Its very common to horror makers, from what I’ve seen! But the sheer variety lets it be more noticeable, and gives that little reminder… This is what frightens the author. At least, thats my guess.
Comforts me when I worry my own visual themes are too “repetitive”. Really, I’m just going for what scares me.

I think one of the reasons the Harry Potter Epilogue was so poorly received was because the audience was primarily made up of the Millennial generation.

We’ve walked with Harry, Ron and Hermione, through a world that we thought was great but slowly revealed itself to be the opposite. We unpeeled the layers of corruption within the government, we saw cruelty against minorities grow in the past decades, and had media attack us and had teachers tell us that we ‘must not tell lies’. We got angry and frustrated and, like Harry, Ron and Hermione, had to think of a way to fight back. And them winning? That would have been enough to give us hope and leave us satisfied.

But instead. There was skip scene. And suddenly they were all over 30 and happy with their 2.5 children.

And the Millennials were left flailing in the dust.

Because while we recognised and empathised with everything up to that point. But seeing the Golden Trio financially stable and content and married? That was not something our generation could recognise. Because we have no idea if we’re ever going to be able to reach that stage. Not with the world we’re living in right now.

Having Harry, Ron and Hermione stare off into the distance after the battle and wonder about what the future might be would have stuck with us. Hell, have them move into a shitty flat together and try and sort out their lives would have. Have them with screaming nightmares and failed relationships and trying to get jobs in a society that’s falling apart would have. Have them still trying to fix things in that society would have. Because we known Voldemort was just a symptom of the disease of prejudice the Wizarding World.

But don’t push us off with an ‘all was well’. In a world about magic, JK Rowling finally broke our suspension of disbelief by having them all hit middle-class and middle-age contentment and expecting a fanbase of teenagers to accept it.

Also. Since when was ‘don’t worry kids, you’re going to turn out just like your parents’ ever a happy ending? Does our generation even recognise marriage and money and jobs as the fulfillment of life anymore? Does our generation even recognise the Epilogue’s Golden Trio anymore?
