Synopsis

Tetsuko "Alice" Arisugawa, a transfer student to Ishinomori Middle School, hears a strange rumor that one year ago, "Judas was killed by four other Judas" in Class 1. While investigating, Alice discovers that the only person who may know the truth, Alice's classmate Hana, lives next door to her in the "Flower House" that everyone is scared of...

Eager to know more about the Judas murder, Alice sneaks into the Flower House to ask the reclusive Hana for more information about the Judas murder and why she's a recluse. The chance meeting of Hana and Alice sets them off on an adventure to solve the mystery of the "smallest murder in the world."

Note: I have not viewed the original live-action film Hana & Alice upon watching this film. Not that it really matters, this is a prequel. So watching this as a standalone is fine. Since there is no synopsis, allow me to set up the story.

9th grader Tetsuko Arisugawa (Arisu/Alice) moves to a new town and enrolls in school. Upon entering her new class, everyone seems to act indifferent towards her. She comes to find out that some awful misfortune only speculated by rumor had befallen the student who used to occupy her current desk the year before. As her classmates put it. She read more

How should put this.... The story was just simple but has a very DEEP MEANING. The entire time, I was just smiling and laughing. The story was so ASIAN. You know... not your Disney thing of coming of age. I don't know if Westerners and European viewers would find this as Exagerrated and find this stupid... Just so you know, As an Asian, though am not a Japanese, ..... tales, superstitions, and myths is very common in asian Countries. You know what? I laugh so hard because the film is just pretty realistic, I laugh because I realized how stupid I was during my highschool read more

Hana to Alice: Satsujin Jiken is a film that passed over many people's heads back in early 2015, but it retains a relatively high rating from its modest following. Hana to Alice is an animated prequel to a live-action film that came out over a decade ago, back in 2004. You require no background from the Hana to Alice universe to enjoy this film; I went into this film without any prior knowledge at all and still immensely enjoyed it. At its core, Hana to Alice is a character-driven narrative with a heavy focus on subtleties, in terms of both characters and atmosphere. It is read more

First off the art style is really weird and off-putting. It seems like it is poorly drawn foregrounds and characters with really beautiful backgrounds which I've seen before, but the movement of the characters feels more like watching a live action movie than an anime. If you give it a chance you will love the characters as they begin to be developed and reveal so much personality. I really feel like this was how silly and childish I was in school and I just thought the acting was brilliant. Then you actually get involved in the story and the mystery. I can see that some read more
