Synopsis

17-year-old Sayako Amanokawa aspires to become a journalist, just like Kanemoto, an elite newspaper writer she looks up to. But Kanemoto, shamed from an erroneous report about a corruption scandal, jumps in front of a train and commits suicide. Since that incident, Sayako suddenly becomes able to see spirits and almost loses her life. However, from that near-fatal incident she experiences something extraordinary. The journalist inside her stirred, she embarks to find out about the truth. But the forces that stand in her way turn out to be much more formidable than she ever imagined.

The reviews here are mostly just bull.
Finishing the film 3 days ago, it's fresh in my mind, so let me enlighten you with a true review.

The story starts off simple but then goes its own direction with the introduction of plot twists, religious perspectives and its referral or continuation to The Laws Of The Sun (watch that before you watch this film).

Despite not being an official sequel to the animated film mentioned above, this anime draws its ideas from it and references it using its actual scenes - so in a way, it's a sequel to that story.

What's wrong with the story being "too religious"? read more

I stumbled upon Buddha Saitan (Rebirth of Buddha in English) on YouTube. If you are interested in watching this as well, I suggest looking it up on YouTube because I did a quick Google search and could not find a reputable streaming site hosting it. Beware though: The version uploaded to YouTube is dubbed, however still has subtitles. So if you can't handle the unfortunate (but not unbearable) dubbed voices you are just going to have to turn off its sound.

The story follows 17 year old school girl Sayako who dreams of becoming a journalist. One day at a train station she sees a ghost read more

Pretty much just the worst anime I've ever seen. It's not just religious propaganda, it misrepresents Buddhism and skepticism at the same time. There are no such things such as demons or evil spirits in Buddhism. The "possession" idea is purely a medieval Christian invention. It's downright disgusting that they would cast the "Buddha" as an exorcist. Buddhism is about self-control, as in, control of your own mind - to avoid thinking and acting mindlessly and instead practice mindfulness, being aware of your own thoughts, etc.

But actually, the main problem I have with this anime is that it doesn't have any good violence scenes. read more

Though this anime was pretty much religion it sorta made me believe in the buddha even though it confused. This anime is surprisingly persuasive. The plot of the story I actually enjoyed it though you may find it a bit cheesy.
