Cool read, reminded me of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Bridgman a lot. Although Genie seems a much darker story. I wonder why her father didn't just off her, to lock up a child for years on end and only beat them… Really fucked honestly.

Our Lady of Sorrows reminds me of Munemoshune no Musumetachi. The motif is quite similar, and if you watch the anime therr are even some thematic parallels. I wonder if the creators knew and this was intentional.

Yea honestly anime takes so much from the western world, sometimes its borderline pathetic if I'm going to be honest. I guess thats just the modern global world though, sharing of culture melding everyone into the same unrecognizable blob.

You sound as bad as those wingnuts that complain about cultural appropriation.

 No.174144

>>174143
No, they only complain about "white people" appropriating their shitty culture, which to be fair it is very cringe to see Europeans dress and speak like niggers, or get dragon tattoos. I think all cultural appropriation is cringe, just like when I see other countries wearing business suits or taking European names, gigacringe. Might as well just start bleaching their skin at that point too, pathetic subservient bastards.

Thinking about this case again, since I just saw a Dr Grande video about her. I didn't know she had dexedrine (amphetamine) in her system at the time of her death.
>The body of Elisa Lam, also known by her Cantonese name, Lam Ho Yi (藍可兒; April 30, 1991[1] – February 2013), a Canadian student at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, was recovered from a water tank atop the Cecil Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles on February 19, 2013.[2] She had been reported missing at the beginning of the month. Maintenance workers at the hotel discovered the body when investigating guest complaints of problems with the water supply and water pressure.

>Hell Joseon, Hell Chosun or Hell Korea (Korean: 헬조선) is a satirical South Korean term that became popular around 2015. The term is used to criticize the socioeconomic situation in South Korea. It is particularly popular among younger Koreans, due to their feelings about unemployment and working conditions in modern society.

>The phrase is a mixture of the words "Hell" and "Joseon", meaning that "(South) Korea is a hellish, hopeless society". Although the term began with private individuals on the internet, it was later adopted by the mass media.
