We were discussing the eerie Psycho references in the show.
Do you think Kureha keeps the mummified remains of her mother in the basement?
Bedroom: notice the covered mirror. Significance?
And of course the outside of the house.
A lot of older unmodified houses look like that/follow that same structural pattern.
The room image could be argued because of a few details but even then it doesn't have to be necessarily a reference to anything.
Dude, it looks almost exactly the same, look at the small details like the painting with the drawing board (?) and the 3 paintings above the mirror. Not to mention there's been undeniable references to other horror/drama series, like the school being named "wuthering heights" and looking exactly like the very recognizable set of suspiria.
It shouldn't come as a surprise since there are references to The Shining and Suspiria as well.
Ikuni seems to have been trying to give the setting a horror-vibe.
It's an old belief in a lot of cultures/religions to cover the mirror when someone dies. Other similar superstitions include shit like stopping the clock when someone dies.
Some different significances for covering the mirrors include:
>The soul of the departed would not get trapped behind the glass and be prevented from passing to ‘the other side'
>If you saw your own reflection in a room where someone had just died, then you would soon die yourself
>Covering the mirrors was one method of preventing the dead from returning
>De-emphasizes personal physicality and vanity, shifting the focus to mourning/the soul/God/etc.
Question, why did it take so long for everyone to notice this. I mean I'm blaming myself as well because I've seen psycho quite a few times and never made the connections but some anons have to ability to see stuff and automatically pick up on it. How did this go unnoticed for so long? I'm not trying to be a faggot just curious.
It wasn't actually. The references from Psycho, Shinning, Suspiria, and many other horror shows was a hot topic since episode one but it cooled down as the plot of the show intensifies.
OP just revived it
It's the Bates motel
All the bears are representations of Kureha's personalities
Kureha killed her mother and everyone else so far. She's severely schizophrenic and the Yuri is just her affection towards her mother.
When a bear dies it's one less personality as she slowly comes back to reality
No idea if this is actually the case since it's from an uncited wikipedia claim on the Yuri Kuma page but, nevertheless interesting footnote that the show's genesis is (very very loosely obviously) inspired by this
Yeah. Pic related from the incident is pretty clearly on Kureha's wall.
Also the novel (and then the radio play and stage play based on the novel) about the Sankebetsu incident were all also called 'Kuma Arashi'
I'm so pleased with this outcome. :#
I don't remember this scene in psycho
I appreciate the quick and exciting pace of this series but I'm starting to wish they had more than 12 episodes to work with. We haven't seen a proper Danzetsu Court sequence in forever and I kind of liked the "duels" on the rooftop capping off parts of the story like the duels in Utena.
I know Penguindrum and Utena occasionally struggled with pace, but their length and the effective use of repetition is still part of what I loved about them.
I'd rather not repeat, and do something interesting every time instead. i cant handle how many times they can pull the fucking "LAST SECOND CLIFFHANGER" card on us.
what does the
lettersay? Does it say: "Ginko is a BITCH!!""oh no! I'd better hide this letterbefore anyone sees it!!"
No I mean they're hilariously incompetent. like it feels like they don't even try, and that's the joke. "Oh no, better accept my fate. That's the end of me!" dumb yuris. cant even not get eate by bears. what a buncha bakas.
A serious concern: Why don't they close down the school if all of these girls are getting fucking murdered? also i think its super bizarre how little anyone cares that all their friends are fucking dead. "the last five class presidents died horribly to bears or were a bear and got shot by a gun, but don't worry. I'll be your new president" *and then gets killed* loop that repeatedly until episode 12.
is the thing of characters that have very little concern for their own life or the deaths of others a weird thing? It's weird isn't it?
Who thinks Teacher is a bear? fucking bear
>Why don't they close down the school if all of these girls are getting fucking murdered?
1. It's metaphorical
2. It's run by Asians, there could be an Asian holocaust going on next door and they'd still be working and not giving a shit
3. Da Bearz
Ginko was the only survivor.
And a little girl, that happened to take a walk in the middle of a battlefield.
I feel like the stuff involving kureha, ginko, and third girl at the court is metaphorical, but girls getting eaten by bears is actually also happening, playing on similar wording by having a figurative beat next to a literal one.
At first I thought the show was gonna be "the yuris vs the bears. every week someone else gets eat and they gotta solve the mystery" but now its just super interesting and everyone's fucking dead but at least it's not boring like rolling girls. (so disappointment in rolling girls) not trying to make this a vs thread i just...had to vent. (SUCH HIGH HOPES FROM THE FIRST BITS OF ANIMATION THAT GOT OUT) :(
thing: I feel like the show uses the opening as a bait and switch, and focuses more on the sensual and emotional aspect of lesbian...lesbear relationships, rather than the exploitative VISUAL aspects. I feel it actually does an interesting job at being a show "for" lesbians, rather than lesbian fetishists.
Where did bears get tanks and submarines from anyways? When we see them afterwards they're in some medieval fantasy world. Or is the implication that the humans bombed them back to the dark ages?
>I feel like the stuff involving kureha, ginko, and third girl at the court is metaphorical,
I think the events might be rearranged to be misleading. The handfull of times Ginko and Lulu have had to go the court also coincide with times that they eat some schoolgirl scrub. Sexy's yuri approval may simply be giving the OK for the girls to eat some chick. The trippy scene that follows with the three girls and the lily may really be something else that we haven't scene yet.
In the early episodes of penguindrum you see Himari/PoC pull something out of kanba's chest, and that scene makes no fucking sense until the end of show where they reveal what actually was going on. I think Ikuhara is up to old tricks again here.
Damn. Yeah, it does looks like the lily flower from the first episodes
God, I pray that we will get to see another lily licking scene.
What is happening? They usually take 3 days.
Nips are short and the bear was fucking huge
>typesetting at 105%
Quality Control goes through it, and if they find anything wrong with, say, typesetting, Typesetting's percentage regresses so the typesetter has to fix it
>and that brings the percentage above 100
Okay anons. Why isn't asenshi a highlighted blue on nyaa? I thought that green meant okay subbers but blue means the best subber? How do you they rate this stuff? How do people figure out which subber is blue if the series hasn't ended yet? (I'm looking at you FFF) Is it based on past shows or what?

Don't have any images because I did this on my other pc.
