Strobe lighting and the scent of musty old books rises from within the fog...
Eisenalex : (06 January 2018 - 11:26 AM) I just saw The Long Dream and Mold getting teased in the opening of Junji Ito Collection. That makes me so happy!
Eisenalex : (06 January 2018 - 11:32 AM) http://www.crunchyro...junji-ito-story
midwinter : (06 January 2018 - 11:45 AM) I'm waiting for it to be available to free users, but i'm excited to watch it!
Eisenalex : (06 January 2018 - 11:58 AM) Do you want a guest pass? I get them monthly and they keep expiring because nobody wants them.
midwinter : (06 January 2018 - 12:04 PM) Ooh, would you mind? That would be very kind of you
midwinter : (06 January 2018 - 12:04 PM) I had the same problem when I had a paid account
Eisenalex : (06 January 2018 - 12:07 PM) Sent. I always have at least one Anime per season that I want to watch the day it comes out in 1080p, so the paid account is still a good investment, lol.
midwinter : (06 January 2018 - 03:01 PM) that was gooood, though i hope they do some of the longer straightforward horror
midwinter : (06 January 2018 - 03:02 PM) i enjoy the humour, but i want to be creeped out as well
Eisenalex : (07 January 2018 - 12:42 PM) They're going to. Souichi has always been pretty goofy and I think it was a good way to start, because that's out of the way now and the contrast between Souichi's Selfish Curse and Hell O' Dollies kicked it off well.
Eisenalex : (07 January 2018 - 12:42 PM) The opening already teased stories like The Long Dream, so we're going to have quite some heavy stuff to look forward to.
Eisenalex : (07 January 2018 - 12:51 PM) The chapters they announced at the end should be Groaning Pipes and Blood-Sickness Of The Sand-Village if I'm not mistaken.
AnimalLover4... : (07 January 2018 - 06:34 PM) The Sand Village.  What is this Naruto?
Eisenalex : (07 January 2018 - 06:34 PM) I was mistaken. Seems like it won't be blood-sickness, but the intersection's pretty boy instead.
Eisenalex : (07 January 2018 - 06:37 PM) lol. I wish naruto was like that, then I'd actually watch/read it.
Hex : (17 January 2018 - 01:00 PM) Things have been quiet lately.  How is everybody?
suprimeking : (17 January 2018 - 03:38 PM) i'm so so
suprimeking : (17 January 2018 - 03:39 PM) anyone around
Hex : (17 January 2018 - 04:37 PM) I am, a bit
Hex : (17 January 2018 - 04:56 PM) Snow.   :icon_fallenwoman:

Just a thought I had last night, not sure if it was intentional or it just went over my head, but I think the Dark Sun is supposed to symbolise the shrine maiden's glance and the character's longing to be understood/not alone at the end.  Part of the folklore of the mountain is that, during sunset, the mountain's true form can be seen, as if illuminated by the dying sunlight.  In other words, during the witching hour, our world is at its closest to the Other Side.  Witnessing it, Mt. Hikami's true form, reminded me of seeing into a person's soul and all of their secrets, which was soothing to those who'd chosen to die.  I think it was also the time outsiders were accepted onto the mountain, which makes me think the later hours are when our souls are closest to death, allowing them to be read easier.

 

A similar taboo was also associated with the shrine maiden's glance as viewing the sunset; those who didn't wish to die should avoid eye contact, as their glance was believed to steal their soul.  It's part of my headcanon that the stronger maidens wore veils as their gaze literally developed a bewitching effect like the sunset, partly fuelled by their attack where they remove them, exposing you to blinding light, like looking directly at the sun.  

 

Ultimately, I think that's why the characters are so drawn to it.  Similar to Blooming, being glanced is both soothing and terrifying, bringing you closer to death (Miku dissolving into the light) or to the living through understanding (Yuuri/Hisoka forever).  What do you guys think?

That's a really interesting theory. I like it.
