This was kind of a taboo for me, since it was entirely made on computer and I tend to dislike entirely computer made animations. Okay, I still disliked the fact that it was entirely made on computer graphics, but I managed to stick with it because the story got a hold of me.

I don't know how developed is the 3D world these days, since I don't play games since ages ago, but speaking about the graphics here, I can say that there were some good animations and some bad, for example, the faces looked quite realistic, but in contrast, the bodies sometimes were read more

Wow, that was ... creepy.

If you enjoyed the Ring, you'll probably enjoy Toshi Densetsu Monogatari Hikiko (Urban Legend Story Hikiko), the same for if you're a fan of Silent Hill. The CGI is somewhat dated, in my opinion, but it's a creepy and chilling horror anime that doesn't skimp on the scares. There's a hell of a twist at the end, too, one that Shamalan might have come up with.

Story: 8 - Like the killer big sister, it starts out slow but builds relentlessly, coming straight for your throat.

Art: 5 - Dated CGI is dated. Watch the new Appleseed movies and gawk read more

A young girl moves in to his next door apartment and he watches as she is tortured by his classmates and mother. Creepy things just keep happening because of the bulling that happens. It’s not a very underused story, but the twist at the end was rather good.

The animation looks read more

You're more than likely here because of Spiraphobia's blog, here to check out some possibly decent horror anime.
Toshi Densetsu Monogatari Hikiko is a short computer animated CGI horror film (er, OVA) about a girl who gets bullied by her classmates. Seems pretty standard for Japanese horror, right? Well... Yes. Anyone who's seen a decent bit of horror (especially horror in a school setting) has seen the "ghost exacting revenge" trope, and the "pity the main antagonist and make it okay for the ghost to kill people" trope at least a million times. Hikiko does a decent job of pulling it off, given the general read more
