This is probably still pretty early on but...
I WANT TO SHARE A THEORY.

I think all the people attending the trip are all dead or they're spirits or some shit and the only two people that are physically alive are the MC,, Hayato and the girl with the psychological problems. There are a few hints that lead their after death experience:
1) Stalker
2) Gun fanatic
3) The guy who thinks survival is the key to life.
4) The girl that was sexually abused.
5) Bus driver with the intention to commit suicide.

I might be overthinking it but it makes sense to me.

Maybe the thingy that knocked on the bus door was actually a human. A human from the village of Nanakimura in fact. Most likely apart from those who were missing a year earlier. Maybe those villagers left the village and began to roam the surrounding forests and whoever knocked on the bus door convinced the bus driver to go back to the village to fulfill a certain task. lol idk.

I can already tell this anime is going to be terrible. It supposed to be a drama/mystery but the way that they've handled all of the tension so far has been nothing but cheesy (that panning shot at the end, its like who the fuck are these people i don't know yet). I'm normally not one to care too much about the premise of a show but this is the most suspect premise I've ever seen in an anime, these people all followed this mysterious link on the internet and threw their lives away did they think they would not get wrecked.

My, my, another "conflict" right after OP? This Anime really is a "brain game". How do you manage conflict in nowhere place with someone you never know. And the "climax" after they finally reach the village...

Lion and Hayoto so far are my favorite characters. It's funny how obvious it is Hayoto likes his best friend to the point even Lion infers it. Looking forward to see where the mystery aspect of the series goes, because I mean I doubt the people that vanished that originally lived in the village are still alive. 5/5 really wish I was marathoning this.

Woo, I have another gay character who's hopelessly in love with his oblivious, heterosexual friend.

Hayoto/Speedstar's probably my favorite right now, followed by Lion who keeps pointing out everything I'm thinking.

I cracked up when she said that lol. Anyway, my guess is that the previous batch of people who came to Nanaki Village got killed by something or someone. The tour guide and Koharun strike me as the most suspicious so far considering that they were the only who knew how to get to Nanaki Village.

Boring. Mostly build up but hopefully next week it's getting better.
But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

http://www.classzone.com/books/lnetwork_gr08/page_build.cfm?content=analyz_media&ch=30

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

It seems like every character in this show has its ways to be an asshole huh. Well done. Not.
Eh, well we can assume now that there is something there and it ain't bears or something of the sort. Nonetheless I can't seem to get an idea about what happened. I hope I get a damn clue next week. That ugly guy, Yottsun? I think, is probably going to die soon. Or so I hope. If this show involves the dead per week idea. We'll see.

Oh and since Yotsunn disappeared and Puke chan is too important to die this early,

It's confirmed pretty much that the black guy will once again die first.


I shoulda known the black guy would be the first to die


Because it's like a norm in movies that the black guy always dies first right?

Hmm... another build up. Well they have 30 characters with only 12 episodes, I'm worried.

The MC is so relatable. Falling for girls around the same age or younger, but not into onee-san type. Lion ftw.

That rapper turned to raper as fast as I dropped that p.

Lovepon wants to execute the driver lol. I think the knocking on that driver made him joined the crew. Probably some aliens, tv crews, or anything from American Horror Story's weird plot twists. Those two survival guys are gonna be an A game people when something came.

Anyway, anyone else got that Hinamizawa accident vibe from this village?

This was pretty much setting up what's yet to come. One thing that's really creepy is, who was knocking on the bus drivers window when all the kids left?

Personally I don't think it's a "monster" that's going to kill every one, I think every person will go batshit crazy and start killing each other

Yottsun might not die at all, but he's one of the three characters to appear in this episodes ending, which gives me the impression he's going to depart sooner rather than later.
I also doubt he'll die but I do think he'll serve as a segway to introduce the villian/antagonist they'l be dealing with. It was also very swift but just before yottsun took masaki she had noticed a little rustle in the bush just outwide of the window which may also lead into something that involves the two.
Jack's reaction to Judgeness, in this episode, suggests that his personality has more to it than a showman's facade.
I immediately thought that Jack will play a rather noteworthy role the moment he punched the bus driver in the face. I doubt they gave him that unique scene for no reason. His persona plays out almost as one that's very alert, as if he knows and has seen more than the average joe.

Annnd we dive headfirst into Okada's cheap drama. Well of course there are rape tendencies. Okada can't live without most cringy things ever in her plots.

Still disappointed at lack of gore and deaths so far. Considering this is Another-2 I guess the actual comedy and lulz will start next episode. Please don't disappoint me Mizushima - we need more material to make pie gifs with. Also don't forget to add another out-of-place-random dance scene that kills braincells too!


2/5

The episode had me laughing out loud at several points. I like the protagonist more now that he accidentally told off Mai Mai, but still manages to fall for every other passing female. I hope he ends up with the carsick girl in the end though. Speaking of her... please be alright :(

Other silly ones were the pirate cosplayer pissed at Jack and the survival guy ranting about females being useless except for procreation. Someone give the guy a fedora!

I'm guessing the silliness will end next episode and we finally get to the suspense part. I want Yottsun to die first tbh.

The last scene made me laugh. The music with the screen shots of all characters somehow felt a bit weak to me.

However overall I really liked the episode. I was kind of expecting no other people to be in the village, but I didn't expect an almost in tact village. I don't watch horror animes, but I have never been longing for one as much as I do now, lol.
This anime could be really interesting (possibly one of the best this season?)

That mc falling for every girl is rather annoying ughhh,.
Seems like he got over it and told off Maimai unconsciously.. well I hope he settle down anyway.
So far I only like Lion and Hayato.. the rest have nasty attitudes or possess a screw lose here and there.
Oh no, Yottsun just raise his own flag.. well I guess the first victim candidate is decided.
Hmm or more like that bastard should die first pffft.

The characters and the way they interact with each other feels poorly written. In most anime it's not a problem, but in one that takes itself seriously like this one it really detracts from it.

I hope the story pushes the show forward because I feel I'm gonna get much from these characters.

So, they give the bus driver their wallets in the most assholish way possible, walk to the village, the bus driver is surprised by something, then he joins them.

Everyone walks around, chats about stuff, etc. Some of the guys are really horny for some reason, and the ambiguously brown guy is the horniest of them all. And because Japan loves rape, they imply a rape between him and Masaki, the character that the writers tried to build the most sympathy for.

Compared to everything else I'm watching, this show is so mediocre. It's like every b-movie about people going to a "mysterious village." I'm going to give this show one more episode. If it doesn't suck less next week, or at least surprise me, I'm dropping it.

1/5
^Pretty much this

For those of you who've seen more anime by Mari Okada: are all of them this cringeworthy?

I fathom it as some former inhabitant encountered the Bus Driver and told him to watch over kids, since he has no real meaning of living behind him.
OR
as someone said previously he is being impersonated by some being, which I hope is not true.
And then those Ending characters, I guess this is hinting at something. Enjoyable overall, psychological suspense or what kind of rotten society is going up worldwide...

I get the feeling that these are the characters from Btooom, except instead of dropping them off at an uninhabited island and forcing them to kill each other, they're clumping all of them together to annoy each other so much that they'll WANT to kill each other.

That said, I'm of two minds about Mitsumune. I empathize with him in that he's never had any experience dealing with girls, and yet I feel like for a kid that was bullied at a young age, that he lacks so much in natural tact and ability to analyse situations as a person (which Speedstar seems to have in abundance). I'm finding his attempts at acting innocent a bit tiresome, and keep wondering that if it's so hard for him to read the mood, why would his friend leave him alone with a bunch of girls around. That said, he seems to have a natural detector for liars, in that he managed to spoil Maimai's fun by not falling for her psudo-seduction.

Horny Yottsun messed with the wrong main heroine here. I have no doubts that he's going to either end up as a carcass or a pile of monster dung after this. No one messes with the main heroine after just the second episode. Though I have to admit that in such a typical anime setting, I was pretty much expecting some horny boys and girls.

The bus driver though... wanna bet he's already dead and the one that joined them stole his face ala Texas Chainsaw Massacre?

Actually looking forward to seeing where the next episode takes us now.

So, MC is a boy that barely arrived in puberty! a kind of kid that tell his biography to everyone!
Annoying as fuck!

Why in the world they're provoking each other? i mean like all of them? they mutually agreed to cohabitate in nanakimura right? they must be like: instead of make peace, let's pisses each other off!
Dehumanizing every unlikeable character was not a good move for a writer you know? as well as humanizing character before its death!

The brown glasses was a douchebag rapist? kinda obvious! what kind of person wore a dark colored glasses all the time? even in the night? with a reversed hat? your typical fuckboy!

Mari Okada, sincerely Fuck You! Sexual inuendos in every bromance? what the fuck? not only gundam but also this? Instead of making a dedicated works you choose to pull out every fucking stock character available! very convinient you bitch!

Rape? that came out of nowhere! well, another unrelentless stream of plot, at least i'll give it a chance!

i don't know what you expected, but the setting, the tittle, and the exposition so far indicate that it would not end well! hence, it's bound to be a little bit dumb (if you think horror, or slasher is).

Its not a serious show. Its from the guy who directed Blood-C and Another and from the girl who "wrote" Wixxoss franchise and 2006's Fate Stay Night. There's not even an ounce of anything serious in that, no matter how much they would or could try. Okada has not written a good thing in her life.

Its not a show you watch for characters or seriousness.
Its a show you watch for cheap soapy over-the-top melodrama and to guess who bites it next and how(as well as laughing at the how).

Topknot guy (Val Kilmer, was it?) is one annoying asshole. Next week we might find out why he is.

As for the rest- Puke girl and black guy are either in danger due to some thing attacking/abducting them or the the latter is showing the former his moves if you know what I mean. Either way, it's really, really bad. Dunno why I'm still watching this, tbh.

What was the name of the guy who's there with his girlfriend? Manabe? Something like that I believe. Anyhow, seeing how the show is heading south real fast, I hope the fucker gets NTR'd. You know, for the heck of it.

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.
