I'd like to blog about Guro

WARNING: This blog is about something that is for mature readers only, meaning you should be over the age of 18 and can be mature about what you are reading. I have warned you so if your mind explodes or your innocent little mind can't handle what is mentioned in this blog and you somehow become suicidal or kill someone or something I CAN NOT BE BLAMED.

First off I should probably define what Guro is -> it is a grotesque form of art, but in most cases is a sub-genre of Hentai. You can listen to a humorous podcast episode of the Weeaboobies dedicated to guro -> listen here. And well.... most people who are a fan of guro are not necessarily sick or anything like that, but guro is seen as something that most people who should not even remotely admit to be a fan of because it is in a sense something a psycho killer/ rapist would get a kick of- well at least the hard core ERO GURO which is violent hentai >.>

Ok, a lot of the anime I'm listing is guro as in grotesque (you'll see limbs getting ripped off, blood, guts, brains, etc).

Some "safe" Guro:
Elfen Lied
Fist of the North Star
Eden it's an Endless World

Probably should not watch/Read at work but you could get away with it:
Battle Royale

Don't watch/Read at work you sicko (these are pretty much Hentai):
Mai-chan's Daily Life [read]
Tokyo Akazukin (Tokyo Red Hood) [read]
Hell Season [did not read]

I'm not too sure... it is pretty grotesque (i havent read/ seen these):
Apocalypse Zero
Violence Jack
Puppet Princess

Anything by Go Nagai, who is pretty much super famous for being a guro artist, should satisfy your need to read gore manga.

Elfen Lied is an interesting case. The anime is not that guroesque, but the manga is far more gorey but it's also calm compared to the pornographic guro... so I would recommend reading this one over the others if you're looking for a gore manga that is not hentai.

Gantz is kind of the same thing as Elfen Lied, but the manga is on the porn side more than the anime (but the anime does have a sex scene). The manga is addicting though... I got through 200 chapters of it in a few days because I could not put it down.

「GANTZ」BOY, I'm excited (>^o^)>

One noteworthy actor in this movie is the guy who
played L in the Death Note movies.

[Drama of the Week] Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac (9/26-10/2/2010)

This one is actually a movie that stars the guy who played L in the Death Note trilogy.

If Naomi had picked tails, she would have won the coin toss. She wouldn't have had to go back for the yearbook camera, and she wouldn't have hit her head on the steps. She wouldn't have woken up in an ambulance with amnesia. She certainly would have remembered her boyfriend, Ace. She might even have remembered why she fell in love with him in the first place. She would understand why her best friend, Will, keeps calling her ?Chief.? She'd know about her mom's new family. She'd know about her dad's fianc?e. She never would have met James, the boy with the questionable past and the even fuzzier future, who tells her he once wanted to kiss her. She wouldn't have wanted to kiss him back. But Naomi picked heads. [dramacrazy]
