these were some very depressing stories but they were really good...I wonder if the author's family (if he had any) was/would be proud of his work...
i find it sad that these authors create works of art but kill themselves as if they never did anything worth mentioning :(
No longer human, run melos run and kokoro were the best 2 me
You didn't even get Kokoro. Why would it be a favorite of yours?

After reading some of the comments, I can see that The Spider's Thread wasn't a favorite. I guess I liked it so much because of its portrayal of the original story. It wasn't exactly accurate (the story was 6 pages long, was extremely philosophical, and there was no character development), but the animation of hell, and him clinging onto the rope was too much for me. It was beautiful in the way that it allowed me to picture the original story better.

I would like to see more of the world of the two last episods - this brightly painted world is so colourful, so desperately bright, so interesting and dangerous!.. Art in this arc is the most impressive, and it perfectly expresses an atmosphere, like in previous arcs.
I don't understand, why most of those, who had watched this anime(it is really a masterpiece!),wrote in comments that they like "Run, Melos!" May be, I'm too pessimistic, but I don't get the way it could be as magnificent and desperately fascinating as other arcs.
I also felt something was wrong in the 8th episode - there wasn't such a usual and disappointing explanation in the book, as it was said, then why should they give it and ruin, may be, the main idea of the story?
Though I loved all the stories and now will certainly find and read them.
The atmosphere of most stories reminded me some masterpieces of my beloved native literature; there is some feeling, that lives both in Japan and Russian literature masterpieces.
So, my burning heart gives "Aoi Bungaku" 10/10 for the great interpretation of classic literature.

i dont understant at all why everyone liked kokoro the best.it wasnt so special and its second(filler) part was pathetic D: also wasnt it very different from its book?have you all read its book?xD (btw me didnt:P)
the Emperor, his men, the atmosphere in Hell Screen and The Spider's Thread remind me of samurai 7.hell i remember disliking samurai 7 and i hated from those stories' absurd atmosphere!the animation was good but this kind of art is just stupid in my eyes:P because all the psychological stories are drawn the same way -_- (oh btw im not including the last paint in Hell Screen,it was beautiful)
anyway i liked the stories a lot so overall 7,99 from me:P
Kokoro didn't really possess much filler as it just warped the events around. The animated version of Kokoro covers only a letter that was in the book. It covers around 90 pages out of 220 pages (the length of the letter). As for liking it, I suppose you'd just need to have read the book to fully appreciate the story. If Kokoro was meant to only be a 90 page story, there wouldn't be 130 other pages to it. The fact that the anime skipped more than half of the book was probably why you didn't like it so much.
As for your other dislikes... I can't say much to that :/ I personally thought the Spider's Thread was better than the original. True, Hell Screen was changed A LOT, but I don't think it was necessarily bad...

@lucjan: oh i didnt compare the other 2 stories to their originals..i just dont like that kind of "art"^^ dont mind me:P
anyway that's why i didnt understand why everyone(not really:P) liked kokoro the best.i dont believe they all read its book and i dont believe those 90 pages were the best compare to other stories:/ (btw i meant kokoro's second episode was filler)

1st one is great probably because it had more time to develop.
Forest one is stupid.
Theater one is touching MAN TEARS.
Kokoto one is brilliant with the 2 POVs!
Spider one is nothing special
Painting one was sick, in a bad way.
Its mixed, some are almost masterpieces, some are not so much. I liked the idea of sharing us their lost literature. The dood at the opening is okay. Im still not a fan of putting real life people on anime.
Aoi out of 10.

No Longer Human: 8/10
In The Forest Under Cherry Blossoms in Full Bloom: 2/10 I'm going to hate but those characters were hard to watch.
Kokoro: 10/10 Best one!!
Run, Melos!: 9/10
The Spider's Thread: 7/10 Not that it was bad but I didn't care for much here.
Hell Screen: 7.5/10 Only slightly better than Spider's Thread still but not redeeming enough.
It's really hard to rate this because on one hand we have the glorious Kokoro and on the other the Cherry blossom story...
If only I could have Melos and Kokoro in a separate entry ;_;
For the sake of rating i'll give it an 8/10 overall for now might change it to 9/10 once in a while if I feel like it.

And it's over...
Well, the latter two episodes was a bit lackluster for me but overall, the series was good so I'll give it a 7/10. Oh and that end song was pretty imo along with some of the more psychological thriller themes.
