Review by Josh
Cory White House de Chou Taihen

This anime covers the horrors of colonialism, emigration, religious conviction, starvation, political trials, patriarchy, puberty, loss, and if methodically exposing each of these very horrifying real life tribulations isn’t terrifying and alarming enough, there’s both an assassination and incredible mind-fuck to leave you chewing over this masterpiece for years to come.

Cory in the House slowly builds to a chaotic conclusion, morbidly grooming Cory’s family to turn against him, to leave him desperate and broken, vulnerable to influence, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
