68. Jigoku Sensei Nube (manga) (15.5 points)

Jigoku Sensei Nube is a decent manga that's filled with glorious moments of body horror in between dull characters and romantic moments. See, Jigoku is mostly a comedy manga before it's a horror one, and while some of the character designs are horrific, they lost a little impact for me when wedged between the goofy antics of the classroom and beyond. The manga is mostly made of short vignettes with longer arcs down the line, and I do enjoy this format. There are definite points where the manga works, for sure, and I can absolutely see some of the more gruesome moments shaking people to the core. One of my favorite volumes was Mystery of the Cannibalistic Mona Lisa, which shows the absolutely terrifying Mona Lisa painting coming to life in a way that feels very Junji Ito inspired. It just always wasn't my cup of tea, with some goofy panels taking me out of the story sometimes. Some arcs towards the end also tend to be more action anime inspired rather than horror.

In addition to the manga, there was an anime produced, three films, three OVAs, and even some video games. Though a decently sized franchise, surprisingly Jigoku Sensei Nube has never recieved any official releases in the west, with the exception of an appearance in the video game, J-Stars Victory VS.

This is a whole lot of "no thanks"! Bob Burnquist, the most awarded skater in X-Games history, attempted this dangerous BASE jump into the Grand Canyon back in 2006, that involved skating off a rail leading into a parachute jump. If you don't want to watch the video, spoiler alert, the first attempt went very poorly and Bob nearly died after missing the rail and almost didn't pull his parachute in time after entering free fall. Luckily though, he survived, and he went out to perform the trick again with better safety measures and it went flawlessly. Despite the scary features of this stunt and the terrifying first attempt, I quite enjoy the resilient nature of Mr. Burnquist and this really ended up having a nice, happy ending I wasn't expecting. I consider myself a pretty fearless person, but all I know is, I wouldn't be caught dead doing this!

Yeah, I agree with your assessment. A fair number of horror manga (and anime) made their way to Indonesia and Nube is one of those and quite popular at the time. Unfortunately we got some chapters cut due to the ecchi content.

Since it's targeted for young/teenage boys (serialized in Shonen Jump), I guess that's why it can't be too scary. But when it's effective it's really pretty good. One of my favorite later chapters was the one with the ghost that insta-kills anyone who sees its face so they have to walk blindly. I also like the more Twilight Zone-y chapters like the one where Kyoko wakes up in a possible bad(-ish) future.

I'm surprised it got a recent sequel but nobody translated that yet...

The Fiend is quite possibly the most exciting and unique face in the horror realm of wrestling I've seen yet. The techniques employed by The Fiend turns each match he's involved in into a pop-up horror film, complete with jump scares and musical stinger, an undefeatable aura, unnatural movements, and a signature move that brings most every wrestler down to their knees. The Fiend is simply a terrifying sight to behold in the ring, and I love he incorporates horror tropes into his wrestling. For example, in a recent Hell in a Cell match, The Fiend seemed to be "killed" after being hit with a sledgehammer and buried under a ladder, but even as the match seemed to be over, The Fiend rose again and took out Seth Rollins with his signature move. Now, I know this was a very controversial and much maligned match and I can see why, but I'm just sitting here, from the perspective of a horror fan, and I'm just like, "this is cool". It shows to me how horror has no boundaries and can be pushed in any medium successfully, and in such creative ways.

Off-the-ring, The Fiend alter ego Bray Wyatt hosts a show called Firefly Fun House, a sort of children's show with a twisted angle that's possibly set in the mind of The Fiend. Some episodes include deranged use of a chainsaw and a creepy talking puppet. In another controversial move, Seth Rollins just destroyed the fun house in a way that undermined a lot of the creepy momentum Wyatt was building up. It's a little sad to me to see the wind being taken out of the sails of The Fiend for many wrestling fans, but I still love what I've seen and there's huge potential for The Fiend to make an unforgettable mark on WWE history as the premier way to do horror in wrestling.

Speaking of Jon Bois, I was looking up some of his other work and I really like the sound of this NBA Y2k thing. Do you know anything about it? @jcgamer107
