In class 3-3 of Yomiyama North Junior High, transfer student Kouichi Sakakibara makes his return after taking a sick leave for the first month of school. Among his new classmates, he is inexplicably drawn toward Mei Misaki—a reserved girl with an eyepatch whom he met in the hospital during his absence. But none of his classmates acknowledge her existence; they warn him not to acquaint himself with things that do not exist. Against their words of caution, Kouichi befriends Mei—soon learning of the sinister truth behind his friends' apprehension.

The ominous rumors revolve around a former student of the class 3-3. However, no one will share the full details of the grim event with Kouichi. Engrossed in the curse that plagues his class, Kouichi sets out to discover its connection to his new friend. As a series of tragedies arise around them, it is now up to Kouichi, Mei, and their classmates to unravel the eerie mystery—but doing so will come at a hefty price.

Another (2012)

Honestly, I wish it was longer! I remember seeing clips, I remember other shows parody this show as well.

The artwork for 2012 looks fantastic! it honestly looks amazing.

The sound is ominous, and ...

Another had the perfect foundation : a novel so masterfully written and well thought out by author Yukito Ayatsuji that it captivated readers from the very first chapter, and a manga that adapted the source material somewhat faithfully. And somehow, P.A. Works managed to butcher its execution.

The anime starts off well, with a story mostly similar to the novel's, accompanied by a beautiful art style. A suspenseful atmosphere is built up with appropriate music, colour contrast and voice acting. Occasionally, a certain plot point is revealed, a certain dialogue is said, that tilts the story in a different direction. Everything we see happens for ...

Time for Another review of a P.A. Works show that I absolutely despised that was equally beat to death, this time attempting to do a horror series and resulting in one of the most beloved unintentional comedies of all time within the medium, that nowadays is remembered as a better Mayoiga, a title that was almost universally mocked to death and that I didn’t watch because if this is supposed to be the better version, why bother with the other one?

Anyways the studio definitely delivered with the visuals in some regards and didn’t with others. The overall artwork is clean and consistent with no major ...
