No Longer Human – 02
I’m speechless about this show. It continues to be awesome and surprising. This episode is definitely creepy and disturbing in so many ways, and I desperately need subs right now to understand more of it, seems my Jap is weak. Damn subs fukken where?! It’s just sad that this show is still unrecognized because it might not appeal to others. Tch. Anyway, visually it’s hands down, my favorite this season. Not to mention that this show’s overflowing with substance. Definitely this tops my Fall watch-list.
So we have to see more of the main character’s background, this time, as a young student. He’s very much bullied and laughed at in school. He also had a friend (which I assume to be the guy he’s with right now). It seems like the strange figure had also been present since he’s still young. What made him do suicide on the previous episode is still a mystery though, but he survived now.
There’s also a new character in this episode, she seems like she’s working on a local newspaper who also has problems of her own because she seemed very dazed while walking on a street and she also got ran over. She has a daughter but no husband. Looks like she’ll play a part in the main character’s life after their encounter.
Woah *screams and runs like a sissy*
So much awesome scenes in this episode. The cliff scene where his lover got pushed still reminds me of the horror flick “The Ring”. I like the hallucination parts like the eyes on the door and most especially the part where the human-like figure he’s been painting coming into life and casting different illusions to him is just awesome to watch. It got freakier when it starts posing while he’s drawing it. The last part as well is interesting as the weird thing goes smiling.
It’s scary even without any silly supernatural elements added into it, and rely on the psychological factor and amazing music to make the atmosphere and impact of the show. Hope someone subs this and I can’t wait for the next episode.
