Don't think horror and animation work together all that well.
Perfect blue is a psychological thriller that'll at least make you feel uneasy so I'd go with that.
There's Blood: the last vampire but I haven't seen that yet
Tekkon Kinkreet has some psychological horror -esque shit towards the end.

But that's retarded.
What about memes (and the word meme itself) and other internet culture terms? Gaming terms? Technology terms? Should we just stop using them for 20 years until they remember to update it?
You can't seriously think you're presenting a good argument here, right?
#1123110 - newbtwo (03/01/2015) [-]
But anyway, enough with the sidetracking, the important thing here is anime.
Marriam Webster dictionary defines anime like this: "a style of animation that was created in Japan and that uses colorful images, strong characters, and stories that have a lot of action"
At the first glance, you can immediately see this definition is beyond stupid. Are all the cute moe slice of life/romance anime not considered anime then, because they don't have strong characters or a lot of action? That's half of anime not considered anime anymore.
Who created this definition? Some clerk at Encyclopedia Brittanica after watching DBZ? What authority does he have over the definition?
Secondly, what authority does a british encyclopedia company have over japanese words?
It's true that initially, even american cartoons were called anime by japanese people in japan, but that is not the case any more, because newsflash, world changes.
Let's look at 2 more idiotic examples that prove my point of dictionaries not being reliable, and that they should not be followed blindly like an idiot.
[url deleted] : Japanese style of motion-picture animation, characterized by highly stylized, colorful art, futuristic settings, violence, and sexuality.
this one goes a step further. Anything that's not very sexual in nature and futuristic in setting is not an anime? Well after this, only a few things can be considered anime any more, and certainly not RWBY and Avatar.
[url deleted] : is a term for a style of Japanese comic book and video cartoon animation in which the main characters have large doe-like eyes.
Breaking news! Anime is now manga!
Wikipedia; Anime (アニメ?, [anʲime] ( listen)); are Japanese animated productions featuring hand-drawn or computer animation
ho, Wikipedia gets it. This honestly surprised me. Wikipedia being more reliable than online dictionaries? Who would have thought?
Anyway, you see now why following "official" dictionaries is not always the most intelligent thing to do?
#1123156 - perzona (03/01/2015) [-]
And how are we using meme wrong? It's an idea,usage, or basically anything that spreads from person to person throughout a culture. Right now people refer to it as an idea,usage, or basically anything spread from person to person through the internet, which is the same thing. "all your base are belong to us" or "it's over 9000", for example.
#1123152 - perzona (03/01/2015) [-]
First of all, characterized means typical, and it is typical or characteristic to have violence and sexuality in anime. Webster's dictionary's full definition of anime (and most of the other dictionaries I've seen) says characterized.
Wikipedia can be changed by multiple unprofessional people, so it really isn't reliable.
People hired to find definitions for dictionaries are professionals, believe it or not. I don't know where you got the one about it being comics, but my guess is it is from one that is not very well known or just an obscure website.
#1123286 - yeorgh (03/01/2015) [-]
Exactly, while making an essay in college and if there's something we learn in college is that the shit you learn in college is pointless, all that technical stuff is never used, just like the definitions of a dictionary, we use the known meanings not what's written in them exactly.
#1123288 - perzona (03/01/2015) [-]
And what's written in them exactly is also right. So in a way, I am right by technicality and you are right by popular opinion, which, if you look aaaalll the way back, was what I said in the first place. Something along the lines of " *dictionary link here* when using this definition, aren't things like shin chan technically not anime while Avatar is?" or something like that. Then anon posted about me being retarded.
#1123261 - newbtwo (03/01/2015) [-]
Ah, but nothing you said can explain why it's flawed.
You're using your opinions instead of facts and reasoning.
Also, why are you quoting exactly what I said? I quoted the dictionary because it supports my claim and doesn't consider a joking karate chop to the head actual violence.
"the use of physical force to harm someone"
harm: "physical or mental damage or injury : something that causes someone or something to be hurt, broken, made less valuable or successful, etc."
A joking karate chop to the head does not cause physical damage or injury, pain is defined as a feeling that's the result of physical or mental injury.
IMO it's pretty clear a joking karate chop to the head is not violence.
Go fap you idiot, it's the internet, you have the rest of eternity to reply.
#1123270 - perzona (03/01/2015) [-]
Again, from a technical standpoint, they are shown to be caused harm by both crying and/or screaming, even if it is for a short time. I wouldn't say it was violence either, but going by the proper meaning (as opposed to what you or I have made a mental image of), it is right.
I'm sorry but I laughed at the fap part, I shall wait until this conversation is over!
#1123259 - yeorgh (03/01/2015) [-]
>It's gone through generations and has beaten nearly every other book in American history.
That's just because it's a dictionary, it's something every one buys (mostly for school purposes) even if they'll only use it once, it's the most basic book to own, hell I don't use them and I have two normal ones and three Spanish > English ones, it doesn't determine quality.
#1123278 - perzona (03/01/2015) [-]
You don't use the one you have because you have the internet, where you can pick and choose whichever definition you think is right, regardless of accuracy. I chose Webster's because of it's historically impressive reputation. It wasn't made by some random dude who just decided to make a website, it was made by some random dude 200 years ago and has grown into a company throughout all those years. Without the internet, you'd hold on to that dictionary for dear life while making an essay in college.
#1123249 - newbtwo (03/01/2015) [-]
I never said it has to be a person, just that anime, whether you consider it japanese animation or style, can in no existing definition be called a character.
I would paste all the Webster definitions of "character" but its too long, look it up yourself.
I know there are two, that's why I dismantled both of them. Can't you read?
1. the use of physical force to harm someone, to damage property, etc.
2. great destructive force or energy
sorry man, I seriously don't think a joking karate chop to the head can be considered violence, and if it was then everything in the world could be called violent in some way.
So what? Why is that comparison flawed? Simply because it's more popular? That's bullshit and you know it. Fifty shades of gay is the most popular and successful book about BDSM, that doesn't make anything in it correct.
#1123257 - perzona (03/01/2015) [-]
I'll have you know I've been trying to fap for the past hour and every time you respond I lose it. And why does dismantling both of them have any validity in this conversation? We're using the definition referring to something being typical.
"The use of physical force to harm someone". Dictionaries are made to make proper definitions, not what you think is right. Saying the typical anime has violence isn't wrong at all.
It's flawed because:
A. It's gone through generations and has beaten nearly every other book in American history.
B. Fifty Shades of Gray beats BDSM books, congrats, it beat a genre, how many of those are there in America?
C. Because I'm pretty sure something that has beaten nearly EVERY book in American history holds much much more importance.
And yes, A and C are supposed to say practically the same thing.
#1123224 - newbtwo (03/01/2015) [-]
Alright logic isn't working on you so let's go back to facts.
you said it yourself:
_: to describe the character or special qualities_
1. anime isn't a character, even you must see that
2. i thought we already established that neither violence nor sexuality are unique to anime
: to be a typical feature or quality of
Once again, violence is not present in the majority of anime.
"Right there in Webster's dictionary. " as you put it.
And what does the fact that it's best selling have to do with it being professional?
So are you saying Fifty Shades of Gray is an accurate depiction of the BDSM lifestyle because it's most popular?
You must realize every single one of your arguments is fundamentally flawed.
#1123236 - perzona (03/01/2015) [-]
Nearly all anime has violence or sexuality in some form, even if it's a karate chop to that b-b-baka's head or jiggle boobs/bath scenes.
It's one of the best selling books in American history and you're comparing it to Fifty Shades of Gray...really? It's also an extremely highly rated book which began 200 years ago and has been building up its reputation since then. That's why it's so popular, it's not a book everyone will forget and stop buying in 5 years.
#1123194 - newbtwo (03/01/2015) [-]
Your own precious Webster defines the world characteristic as follows:
_ a special quality or trait that makes a person, thing, or group different from others_
Now, I don't see violence or even sexuality a characteristic of anime in any way, because it's hardly, and I mean very hardly unique to anime. Either this definition is flawed, or the definition of anime. Your call. But in the end, Webster is obviously not reliable.
They are professionals? Well obviously not.
They include only one meaning of the world "anime", purely English-centric.
They don't even have a point 2. or something to say it's a Japanese term for all animation (even though thats now outdated), so you can see it's an unprofessional, superficial, poorly defined term.
There is a term for anime style. It's called "anime style." What a surprise.
RWBY and Avatar and whatnot all use anime style, anyone can see that and nobody denies it, but that doesn't make them anime.
Since the overwhelming development of anime industry in Japan, and their contact with the west and western anime fandom (read: weeaboos) the japantards refer to anime as cartoons they've made only. And who is some random Webster guy to tell the japantards how to use their own word in one of their largest industries?
Dictionary. com is one of the most famous internet dictionary sites, as is Whatis. com, where I found the idiotic comic definition.
Also, you say you used multiple dictionaries yet only ever mention and quote Webster.
#1123208 - perzona (03/01/2015) [-]
: to describe the character or special qualities
: to be a typical feature or quality of
Right there in Webster's dictionary.
Merriam-Webster's collegiate dictionary is literally one of the best selling books in American history, right up there with the bible, so obviously they ARE professionals.
Of course they're going to use the English term for anime in an ENGLISH dictionary!

Hello, class, my name is Trigger. Scienceexplain could not be with you today, so I shall be filling in. Please take out paper and a #2 pencil, and we can begin.
It's a skin condition called dermatographic histocaria, known colloquially as "skin writing." Medical science is not sure what causes it yet, but theorize the symptoms, i.e. the pronounced welts that you see, are thought to be caused by mast cells with weak membranes in affected persons releasing histamines without the presence of antigens, causing something similar to an allergic reaction and causing the skin to rise in response to physical trauma, heat, cold, and many other things. You could write a message on your friend's skin with your finger.
How do I know all this? Because I have it too. I'd show proof but you probably don't wanna see that shit.

you just diagnosed me after years of my doctor telling me i have fucking atopic dermatitis (that shit is fucked up, from a quick google image search i can tell i dont have that)
ive been suffering for years now, i cant go outside or laugh too much or eat cold or hot food or anything without my mouth swelling, or my skin breaking out REALLY bad. all the medication he gave me never worked. I can also write on my skin like you do, but it will start to itch after about 30 seconds if i do.

I can agree with this I'm a nurse at an allergy office and we diagnose people with it all the time, also i have it too
