"Another" was a great, ominous anime that was unique in it's plot and characters, as well as having many great twists to it. Even if you aren't into horror, this show is worth watching. It has many moments of suspense, but also some gory scenes that may not be for the faint-of-heart. My complaint is how the show ended on the last episode, which didn't seem to have much of a fulfilling resolution. Even though this show was a bit dark, it had its cute romantic moments that brightened up the show a bit. If you are looking for a great horror but not too read more

Another was one of those series which had me waiting eagerly for Mondays to arrive and wishing that the weekend would end sooner. For twelve weeks, it was my priority above all else to watch this amazing series, and to be honest, I'm already awaiting the release of the OVA in May. If I had to say what makes it so incredible, I would cite the short series length, the clever plot with a brilliant resolution, and outstanding animation as the main contributing factors, although the promise of blood will probably be enough for most people to decide whether this show is for them or read more

Recommendations

Guy moves into a town which holds a mystery that unravels troughout the show. Higurashi has some lighter slice of life episodes, but that's cool because it's pretty long including -kai.
Highly reccomend both

Both give a similar feeling: New guy arrives to a little village, and certain dark events start happening that are somehow related to a young mysterious girl. Slow and creepy atmosphere that makes you want to find out what´s going on. Brilliant ost and VA´s. Personally I enjoyed Shiki more, because it gives a deeper development to its characters and a more intricate plot. Still, Both are awesome animes that will keep you thrilled till the end, so if you enjoyed one, you will probably enjoy the other.
