Within the Bloody Woods (WtBW) is the fourth work of Nagao Takena (the only one in this page that didn't have a review until now n_n), and brings a few new features.
First, it's episodic: there are two chapters, unlike the other shorts, which were self conclusive. Second, there are voices! But I will expand about this later...

WtBW is about a man wondering in a dark wood. Fortunately, he meets a person. Unfortunately, that person's a zombie! But not everything is lost: our protagonist (for some reason) has a machete, and is willing to fight bravely against the undead!

This is a claymation, not an anime. Why is this on MAL? I'm so confused.

Apparently the creator of this is some prolific guy. To be honest, I thought that this was a college students final project/thesis thing..... or maybe that's too generous and I should say a highschool student's final project.

The only reason this wasn't a 1 in my books is because it had a story, was mostly consistent, and the story was simple. Guy's in the woods, meets a zombie. Simple and straightforward.

the writer or plot remained true per-say. I say that for after first episode it continue in the second right where episode 1 left off. However, when episode 2 ended it was followed with a to be continued. Granted, that could have been error, lack of funds, an indication of Within the Bloody Woods 2, or anything. So, to be fair i will give the benefit of the doubt and not show ...
