This is a horror anime, but I was like WTF? All the time.
There are three short stories, kinda disturbing, but not scary.
I think pointless death isn't scary at all.
I could write about the plot, but there's no plot, also you feel sorry for the guys in three stories.
All I can say if you want to be scared this anime is not a good option, if you like disturbing pointless plot, so be my guest.
