Reading non-fiction books such as manuals, biopics, essays and the like is quite a delight. Does anyone here find them interesting as well?

Nekojiru Udon (known in english as Cat Soup) was a manga originally published in Garo magazine. Some of it got translated (http://mangafox.la/manga/nekojiru_udon/) but there was much more that never was to my knowledge. There's a blog that was translating it (https://translatingnekojiru.tumblr.com/) but from what I remember it was a clusterfuck of random pages from different volumes, and now you apparently can't view it without a tumblr account. Does anyone own scans of or physical copies that they could scan of the untranslated volumes?

It was also made into 2 anime. A half hour long film, whch I know some of you have seen already (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlLBX4EIlJY) and a series of short cheap episodes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWnkOvi4i6c).

Dear Friends,
i've been working on this art project called The Edges of The Cube for a few years now and finally it is about to take off. I'm excited!
actually this is the first place in the Wired where i post about it other than the fb Yume Nikki group.
if you love Yume Nikki, i'm sure, you will be attracted to my little thing as well.
first 2 chapters and a video you can find on my website,
www.theedgesofthecube.com

 No.593

The video narrator sounds like a giant faggot. Am I supposed to listen to this for 8 minutes? Because I can't.

 No.594

I haven't finished reading the text but the voice in the video you use makes it hard to listen to, which is a shame because I like the ideas expressed in it. I did listen to the whole thing but you did not use a voice good for conveying information. It seemed like you deliberately used a breathy voice that you weren't comfortable in, when you should be speaking strongly and distinctly. I'll get to the writing portion when/if I have time to finish it (I read slowly).

 No.595

i appreciate the feedback. You are right, that isn't my natural voice. If i'd do my regular tone it wouldn't go with the character, though. He has this ghosty vibe, that i want to preserve as much as possible.

I was hoping there were some people out there that know of any good writer support groups. I'm currently working on a book, but the problem is that the genre is kind of hard to pinpoint, though it leans toward supernatural overall. So are there any groups that you'd recommend to me?

Find a competent forum RPG, make a character, participate, and talk to the other players. That's how I learned to write.

A fair amount of people have asked what are books that are reminiscent of Yume Nikki. This made me wonder if there are books of similar vein to .flow - or, to be broader, it's like a Yume Nikki-esque book but gritter, creepier, or more horror-oriented. Would be interested in reading what y'all mention.

I am fond of reading poems. Reading and writing own stories and poems helps me to improve English skills. Few weeks ago I wrote my poem and published it on one site for writers. Two days later I found that it was published on anotjer site under another author's name. Plagiarism also well- known problem in wrtitng essays. I prefer to write essays by my own and now i am fighting with writing reflective essay like here https://essaypro.com/blog/reflective-essay/

Starting from two weeks ago I've resolved to actually get into reading and start going through books one after another. It's not like I don't pick up something for fun once in a blue moon, but I never really submerged myself in literature. I figured it would be better to die after going through my bucket list plus some. It's the sort of thing you can wait on for years after all.

Lord of the Flies: I've been meaning to get to this one since middle school, though I can probably appreciate it now much more than I would have back then. The symbolism is heavy-handed, but poignant none the less. It's about a bunch of boys getting stuck on an island. The book's about how the savagery of man conflicts with society/our reason and the gradual degeneration of the boys works nicely as an allegory for that. I was surprised by my own reaction to the gruesome parts of the book. When something like that actually gets under my skin that's a good sign. I'm desensitized to pointless gore. This is the sort of thing that should be taught in school, but is gradually being phased out.

Dracula: This was a fun ride. I've watched the German movie in a class before and the differences are astounding. The most well known theatrical versions seem to have cut out the entire plot and half the characters. The book really deserves its own mini-series. Aside from the story itself, it's interesting to see how stuff I watched before seems to have been influenced by it, Jojo in particular in my case. The long speeches about nobility, the dramatic reactions, etc. It's a Romantic/Gothic adventure story. It starts off slow with the first three hundred pages being build-up, and the last 100 being constant action. I actually got invested in the characters the same way I would have in an anime or something. It was entertaining to see the characters, especially Van Helsing, learn about and battle the count in wits.

 No.854

Frankenstein: This book was very thought-provoking. It's a little hard to get into, but once you become comfortable with the style and look up what countenance means, you should be fine. After reading this, Dracula seemed simple and maybe even a step down, but despite their similarities, they're apples and oranges. The actual plot isn't anything too compelling, but the way the book plays with your emotions and makes you doubt your own perceptions of characters is extremely compelling. The point is, you're not always right about your moral judgments. There isn't a security in your own perspective in Frankenstein. The monster is, by the way, eloquent and intelligent, which makes the theatrical version seem completely butchered. It upsets me a bit to see how people's conception of both Dracula and the monster are based on bastardized versions. It's not long and I definitely think it's worth a read through.

Solaris: Starting a sci-fi book after the last two was jarring, but I powered through that pretty quickly. It's about a distant planet covered in a massive, life-like ocean with the bizarre abilities to influence its own orbit around two stars and continually form massive structures that perform unbelievably complex processes and then disintegrate. The planet has been being studied for 100 years already and at this point investigations seem to be at their tail end without any definitive conclusions having been made. When the main character arrives to the research station, there's only two scientists still left there, with the third having recently committed suicide. Starting from recently, these scientists have been being 'visited' by people from their past memories, like hallucinations, but actually physical. The main character's nineteen year old wife who committed suicide years ago is who comes to him and with no recollection of her death. It's not immediately clear whether these visitors are actually self-aware, or just following a program.

The similarities to Evangelion are too numerous to seem like a coincidence to me. The red ocean, descriptions of giant humanoids floating in it, the planet 'mind raping' people to learn information about them and humans in general, etc. Their atmospheres are also very much alike and there's many similarities between the utterly inhuman nature of the planet, the structures that form on it, and the angels. It's also similarly depressing as hell. There's way too many themes and thought-provoking questiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>The similarities to Evangelion are too numerous to seem like a coincidence to me.
It probably is a coincidence, there's not much similarity beside the superfluous theme of something more powerful than humanity messing with people's heads. Which is not even the focus of Eva, now that I think of it. But who knows, Lem is a very renowned writer, maybe Anno was in fact influenced by his work somehow.

 No.856

>>855
I meant more along the lines of visual similarities, though a lot of that probably comes from my own imagination. The way in which the planet and angels 'mess' with people has some stuff in common too, like the book's dream sequences(the melting together parts among others). I'm not the first person to have made the connection.

Recently I had the privilege of reading the masterpiece that is I Want My Hat Back, and its spiritual successor, This Is Not My Hat, by Jon Klaasen. I was immediately overcome with a lighthearted happiness from enjoying this book, and have since been inspired to bring the same to the earth, though it has been hard to hold onto it.

What is your favorite children's book? What were your favorites as a child? Have you picked one up in a while? They are still great, and after having read them at an older age I do appreciate the tact it takes to put together such a delightful book that remains entertaining and a wholesome-feeling read at any age.
