Monsters only appear if you believe them - Nakano, best boy (2017-2017)

Story (10/10)

The movie story is very original, much better than the game as it only relies on shock value. This movie has no plot holes and has excellent foreshadowing to boot.

Art (6/10)

I did not like the CG used in this, it reminded me of SIMS. It was ok but it could have been hand drawn instead.

Sound (8/10)

The music was not that good. It was nice for a horror game anime. It was forgettable at best.

Characters (10/10)

Instead of the GOAT cast of Takeshi and co, we have Manabe and co who are much better and read more

Many fans would love to see a good horror-movie based on the game 'Ao Oni' but instead they get this...

Sadly, it has very little to do with the game. It has the monster, the chase music, and they talk about 'Ao Oni' being a video-game. That's basically all it has in common with the source material. The plot isn't terrible but the execution is very poor. The pacing is slow and awkward. Every scene feels like it was slowed down. The characters aren't likeable or interesting. They had plenty of time to make them likeable before the threat comes into play but nope. The characters read more

If you thought the Ao Oni comedy shorts were bad, wait until you see this - it's even worse. The comedy shorts are a masterpiece compared to this tripe.

Story: This is apparently a story based off the game; too bad there is no story. The majority of the hour long movie is the characters sitting around talking and nothing happening. It takes place in a school, not in the usual mansion. There is a story there somewhere, but it's lost in the boring, awkward telling.

Animation: Studio Deen, who brought us such animation fail classics like Axis Powers Hetalia and Higurashi, are the animators of this. read more

I'd like to start off this review with a few warnings. First and foremost this review will contain spoilers. Second; if you haven't seen the movie here's a tip. DON'T.

I've been a fan of the ao oni game for a long time. I was excited for the short animated series to come out but unfortunately it was a flop. Then I heard there was going to be an animated movie. "At least it can't be worse than the series" I thought to myself. I was wrong.

Story: 1

The story(?) revolves around a club who finds out their town has a urban legend that's similar to the read more
