Rei Kigata is a first year middle schooler at Ishido Middle School. He is not a believer of any paranormal phenomena such as existence of ghosts or spirits in any kind, but one day at midnight, while he is sleeping, a mysterious newspaper called "Horror News" is delivered to his room. The newspaper tells a story in which one of his teachers at the school will get killed in a car accident the following morning and Kigata will be a witness of the accident. The story turns into a fact in the following day and since then, the mysterious newspaper is delivered everyday. He realizes he is haunted by this newspaper and that his life span would be shortened in 100 days every time he reads it.

You know, it's not often that I say an anime is MADE for LOSERS. I will often say that an anime is made BY losers (for example Ninja Slayer), or will say that its fanbase is composed of losers (say One Piece), but it is indeed quite rare to find an anime that was exclusively created to please LOSERS.

The protagonist, Kigata is a 13-14 year old kid, that suddenly one day gets cursed. A newspaper is delivered to him every night that prophecises events of the next day (at the start it was "disasters" but by the 6th episode it was pretty much random read more

Oh boy, it's been such a long time since I last written a review. Ok, so, this is probably the most unpopular anime out there. Maybe it's because ONA scares the hell out of people. OVA is somewhat acceptable but ONA? Not so much.
Kyoufu Shinbun is actually a very good ONA.

So the story goes something like this: a boy gets a creepy newspaper every night delivered straight through his room's window. It tells all kinds of scary news that actually about to happen. Every time there's something else going on. He investigates and discovers some unusual stuff.
The stories are great. Even though they read more

The year is 1974 and Kigata Rei is haunted by a newspaper that is delivered every night at midnight. This is heavily based on the manga including the art and the pacing. Older manga tended to infodump A LOT whenever it got the chance as the artist wanted to make sure that the readers were all on base. It's similar to the way it's done in Light Novels to where paragraphs are dedicated to explaining everything before finally getting back to the story. This anime is no different. Most of the episodes are nothing but exposition on spirits, astral projection, yetis, psychic powers and UFOs. read more
