I can't handle my horror well at all... Is it bad that I'm already scared?

But I'm really excited. I have a feeling it's a skinwalker like lots of others are saying. I mean, why would a monster just knock on the bus drivers door? Pretty sure he killed him.

Yoooo, there are a lot of assholes in the group! So the village exists huh?
The suspense tho, my hearth couldn't stop beating fast throughout the episode!

Aaaand 2 people "disappeared"! Nice cliffhanger.
YOTTSUN BRING BACK MASAKI. Where have they gone? I think he is trying to rape her or something

This shit is getting good

I felt like I was watching an Hollywood movie.
Looks like this series is headed towards Horror genre. Will have to wait and see how it pans out.

Remembering the names of the huge cast will be a huge pain though.

Fake people have an image to maintain. Real people just don’t care.

3/5 episode at best.

Just a total lack of tension this episode and it doesn't help that they arrived at the village during a sunny day so there wasn't any atmosphere to build up the "mysteriousness" of the place. I wasn't even that shocked about the ending when were informed that 2 people went missing. It just felt jarring when it was brought up in the middle of the crew doing 'whatever'.

Also, all the characters in this episode seemed less interesting compared to the first episode for some reason as if they all became "normalized". Before, everyone had their own quirky idiosyncrasies that viewers can at least follow whether if its all just for dumb fun or some personality trait that we can relate. As a result, all the dialogue/exposition and exploration of the village by the cast just seemed "meh" for me.

It's looking promising. Anticipating when shit will hit the fan. I like how it's an anime original so there are no spoilers.

Lots of annoying characters eg. Valkana (will you STOP YELLING), Yotssun (rapist trash), shady ass guides and pervy girls. Bus driver also has entitlement/self-confidence issues.

Hayato is my spirit character, though. And Jack, because he seems promisingly mad.

Ugh, I'm not liking Mitsumune's character. I feel like he's going to turn out like the MC from Ajin. Actually, scratch that. I don't like a lot of the characters in Mayoiga xD

The bus driver seems really suspicious, appearing out of nowhere. He was stuck in the ditch before and then he arrives at the village without the map. Seems legit.

People are going to start dying soon. Bring your popcorn.

But I love Kei. He's complex and very human, albeit in a sociopathic way.

I hope that Mitsumune and Masaki are killed off, they have annoyed the hell out of me so far. Hayato and Lion would do much better as main characters... Actually I like Valkana too. Yes, he yells a lot, but that's what makes him cool. The bus driver really is suspicious, but I don't mind that, so far this series hasn't been suspenseful enough.

Pretty much a build up episode, Nothing much to say.

Something exists in that village from the looks of it. I thought the bus driver would die xD

The vanished village as Lion put it had a pretty eerie ring to it.
I hope this does turn into a horror anime.

Not a great episode, but I'll keep watching because I'm interested in the mystery. Hopefully there will be a real enemy (the bus driver, villagers, the bear?) and not just kids wandering around and killing each other.

Also needs more screen time for Hayato and Lion.

The tons of dialogue are as expected but in this case is really monotone and unintelligent.

Got a bit better towards the end but up to now this is frankly boring and pretentious. I can sense how it can get better but question marks still

they want to go meet the village folk; so all 30 of the people swarm a house looking in all the windows while yelling for the people and walking into the houses.. Should've killed the bus driver though.

Kind of a boring episode for me, but some of the character interactions were nice. Hoping to see more solid plot progression next week.

There is a good amount of character interactions,
considering there are too many characters and so little time.
Truly, these 20 minutes are resting short.

Oh come on! Too many names! jaja I can't remember them all. I just know Lion and Lovepom
because they are in English! I need more nicknames! NICKNAMES! I can't with japanese names jaja
I struggle so hard to keep them in my memory..

The couple of newlyweds... oh god... either they get funny moments of bye bye...they are annoying.
It's like "get a room already"

I like the series, it's good =)
But still, I wan't the horror part to get started but these first episodes are to set the mood so I can understand.
I'm sure I'll will not drop this.

Yes. For me it's definitely dumb, not worth my time genre. I like horrors but slashers are the worst thing in the world, along with 'murican romantic comedies imo.

Well, it's your personal preference if you gonna say that was dumb.

What I expected?
>Drama, Mystery
It's pretty similar to Lost.
? Tells nothing

I'm still expecting something good.

C'mon man, it doesn't take genius to realize that something peculiar are about to happened. Even if you wanted to trace down, something like mirai nikki tagged as mystery known of being close to what you could call as slasher. as for a genre, we can't trust the demographic yet! Therefore it won't surprise me if in the future they have to add some more like horror, tragedy, or thriller, well who knows for sure.......

Classic japanese horror build up. First they isolate you with their setting! cut out from the world! i mean nanakimura? The lost village? that's isolated place for sure! starting over new life? these faggot gona act like they arrived in paradise or something! Group conflict? This writing is bullshit, but i'll tell ya it's necesary for a convinient plot so they can push each other around, then if possible kill each other!

Lost Village? Lost? Village? Why is it lost? Why not deserted village or even new life village? or another heart warming bullshit? because they trying to evoke an eerie nuance to the title. well it's a theory, but at least "lost" has a negative connotation.

Well go ahead and expect something good from this, i could be wrong, i could be not, not all slasher was dumb! they are all sick i understand that, but scream? halloween? texas chainsaw? c'mon, at least one should not be dumb right?

Well, the "missing people" is not really a big deal, just Yottsun wanting to rape Masaki.

I think it's also pretty clear that mysterious E-Mails from unknown senders usually don't mean a good thing, so I think it's safe to assume that it was a bait and that they have problems coming up.

What was the knock on the driver's door though?

Avarage Episode as the show itself. Have no real opinion, usually not my genre but I was curious ("watashi kininarimasu").

I'm really curious what made the bus driver stay in the village. Obviously one of those shady figures that were implied the whole episode. But then again if he wasn't harmed by it then what made him change his mind?

And actually I wanted to say it has already started but somehow the fact that the girl and that douche disappeared doesn't seem like a beginning at all. The preview looked like it's actually beginning next episode though.

On a side-note -> The email was quite interesting. Totally looks like they were setup. Really want to know the reasoning why the sender was trying to get people to that place(why else would he give that information away to a random student).

It's getting better since some of the men are sexually furious, so we were bound to get a rape moment eventually...didn't think it would happen so soon.

Why wouldn't the bus driver just tell them what he saw?

They kind of just swept that under a rug and focused more on how Koharun found the village...okay I guess.

Nice, they made it to the town and people have gone missing. Now I wait for them to find lifeless body of the darker skin guy as well as remains of the people who lived their before.

When subs come out my theory may change since my Japanese isn't too good, but from what I gathered, I would guess whatever the Driver saw when he was in the bus alone, probably killed him and then took the form of him to integrate with the group.

That part when "the mysterious man/woman' knocked on the bus was extremely frightening tbh. Just imagine you, alone in a forest on a bus, you turn your head towards the window and there is someone scary that knocks on your bus staring at you...well, we all know what happens next.

adding to this..

Maybe the ghost of the Driver isn't there to join them, he's there to try to convince them to abandon the village and go back so they wouldn't end up like him.. oh my

Welp, this show just took a dramatic turn to the retarded. I hate every single one of the characters, and not just because they're all annoying as fuck archetypes (although there is that), but because they are all completely uncompelling. The bus driver could've had some interesting stuff happening, but no, in the first episode they make him a suicidal maniac in his mid-life crisis that then suddenly isn't a suicidal maniac in his mid-life crisis. This would be better adapted as a VN, but even then you'd definitely have trouble selling me on this if it started so shakily.

Only reasons I'm staying with this series:

1. Verdant backgrounds (hard for me not to like some good backgrounds)

2. A relatively interesting premise

3. The babes ain't hard to look at (but nonetheless annoying as fuck with the "nyan nyan" and cutesie couple and the plethora of edgelords)

and 4. Because I made a solemn vow to never drop a show, even if it makes all my orifices bleed simultaneously (which, thankfully, this one hasn't)

For fuck's sake, why do I hate myself

The bus driver is very suspicious at this point.

I found this episode to be pretty lackluster. It looks like the next episode is going to more exciting, as they should begin to develop this "disappearance" of several characters. It seems that our main-protagonist guy has character depth, and I'm suspecting he has some psychological issues (at least that's the vibe I got). Bring on next week!

A lot of people are speculating on what's up with the bus driver, did he get killed and a shapeshifter take his place, etc. I have another theory. At the end of Episode 1, just before the bus drove onto the bridge, it passed a house. There was a camera shot from inside the house looking at the bus and you could clearly see a window and drapes.

So my theory is that whoever lives there saw the bus (and maybe they were even expecting the bus). In any case, since it's been a year or more since anyone drove over the bridge, they went out to investigate and startled the driver. Then they somehow persuaded him to join the group.

Now if that's correct (if it was just a human who knocked on the bus door) it might remove the whole supernatural/horror survival/gorefest expectation for this series, so I'm not sure I even want my theory to be true. I actually want people to start kicking the bucket right and left and I want to to see fewer and fewer people in the OP and ED.

At this point, I don't much care if a flesh eating virus, Bigfoot, or Justin Bieber kills them all. I am hoping that the lovey-dovey (I hear T-ara in the background) couple are the first to cease breathing. Meanwhile, the bus driver has all their money and just pops up to try and run the show......nice try....or not. So far 7/10

Bus Driver, most interesting character so far.

Wonder where this series is going. I really hoped they would give us more insights on every character, but after seeing this is a 13 episode series and how they are putting some characters as only annoying ones without much depth (like the couple, the eye patch guy and the rapper), I really doubt it.

Anyways, looking forward for the next episode~

Well, not much happened this episode. It was ok though. I'm just getting really annoyed by most of the characters. I can't wait to people to start really disappearing or to get killed.
The vilage itself is a bit disappointing. I was hoping for something more dark and misterious looking. It just looked abandoned, which isn't that weird in rural areas [old population dies off, younger people leave to find jobs and better life in the city]. I just find it heird that they think people build that village from scratch... hello, there's a public phone cabin, old phones in the houses, a post mark... that means that village was once connected to the civilized world. Anyway, let's see where this goes...

2 episodes and no deaths? are they trying to convince us that there is a plot?
when they started exploring the village i thought of sotoba,
but shiki is a masterpiece and this show is just... ugh!

i hope megane and pink goddess survive, but i highly doubt that.

The dialogues are full of inconsistencies, and... who knocked the bus door? After that, the driver went to the town. Too, too suspicious.

Best character in here is the bus driver. He and Hayato are the only ones there that actually seem to have some notion of logic in the cast.
