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.

What I didn't like was the ending wasn't as satisfying as I was hoping it to be, I was hoping for a few more answers. However, the plot twist in who the "extra" ...

Mixed Feelings
It’s hard to give my overall feelings on Another because it goes up and down a lot. I have a lot of issues with the show: sometimes extremely important plot details are explained very poorly, the tone gets too bright at points compared to the start and I often found myself frustrated because characters withhold huge information for reasons that are questionable at best.

However, I enjoyed the very start and very end of the show a lot. The atmosphere and mystery was really strong at these points. Also, the soundtrack and some of the set designs are really amazing and suit the atmosphere perfectly. Since ...

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 ...
