It's funny how whenever some insane horror shit that doesn't make any sense happens in anime, people automatically think it's epic. XD

Eh, it was an okay ending. Didn't really explain everything, though. The show started out awesome, but went downhill a bit. :/ I still give it a 8/10 though.

All awesome and stuff but i see two major plotholes there. First, who was the guy that stabbed Reiko, why did he look so much like Kouichi and why isn't anyone even looking for suspect, police anyone?
Second, does that mean Reiko and Ritsuko were the same person? Didn't Ritsuko die when she gave birth to Kouichi? Why would he call her 'mother' when she died half a year ago when he was hospitalized in Yomiyama?

The deaths at the start just made me laugh at how sudden and silly they were.

Last couple eps the problem for me was the transition from normal to crazy was too sudden. I like how they did it in shiki. It just all felt rushed at the end.

I love how unexpected it was, I never considered the dead person to be the dead person. But it actually made sense. I give it a 9/10, now time to read the manga.

OMG, Misaki, showed even 2 emotions during this episode! What is this world turning into? I still don't like her. I was happy to see her ass kicked by Izumi. Well, at least the reason Misaki was quiet about the dead one was explained.

I still wonder though who killed Reiko. I mean, that guy looked too much like Sakakibara and I don't think that at this point it would make sense to put something deceiving like this. I mean, it's the last episode, I couldn't care less what happens to an already dead charatcer at that point!

Also I find the fact that the calamity will simply repeat once again a slight... let down. Ok, a huge one. I know it would be cliche if they just stopped it, but half of the class was already dead including the teacher. Not to mention that the alive part is most likely scarred for life after that accident with burning mansion and several murderers. I feel like stopping it for that year is a bit too little and anticlimactic. I can't help it. The whole ending gives off a "who cares about other people dying, we won't die this year, that's enough for us" feel.

About the anime as a whole, too many plot devices (no police or anything, no media, Sakakibara killed his own aunt/step mom and seems to be ok with it, etc.), too much of emotionless Misaki (not in a cool way) and a very good psycho horror turning into senseless gore (or a competitionfor little kids in killing people) made me rate it WAY lower I would normally. 6.5/10 rounding to 7/10 simply because it doesn't deserve a 6. And it had a nice start.

Wow I really didn't see that one coming!! It was really cool, a few things have been left unexplained, though, the ending seemed a bit too rushed. But I guess it was okay, all in all, and I really enjoyed the drawing style. I'll definitely give the manga a go, I'm hooked for the concept!

The series as a whole was pretty solid. Mei was just a perfectly carved out character. She was really eerie and creepy in the beginning but she became more human at the end. Having said that I thought she was one of the most likeable character in the series. I didn't like the whole final destination feeling of the series especially the pinnacle of the deaths in this episode. ( people dying from the most ridiculous freak accidents that was just lulzy to be honest). This was perhaps the biggest symbolic hint that Reiko was the extra person that i thought was masterfully presented. I guess you can say that I enjoyed the atmosphere of the anime more than anything.

overall 8.5/10

Awesome show, really found it enjoyable, made me look forward to Monday XD; Saw Reiko being the extra a long time ago; but it was still nicely put together, sucks that Izumi had to die, but it was practically written two episodes ago and with how last episode ended it didn't help her chances. I wonder if there was anything more to that smile at the end...XD

Also, i find it odd how there were only 10 victims in total, seems to me that a lot of them died during the last few episodes.

He said the number that died in the month of August was 10, counting the inn-keepers.

Overall I thought the series was fine, but I didn't care for the last two episodes - just far to many things to nit-pick at.

Unfortunate that both Ogura and Akazawa were my favorites... Especially how Ogura died can make you cry...

Woot amazing ending to probably one of the better horror/mystery series out there; I actually came close to guessing it was Mikami, but after last episode when she was hit in the head, I honestly thought she was dead and that she wasn't the one :I (then she came back of course but...) the fact that she was Reiko actually took me by surprise though, greatly.
Akazawa's death was really unfortunate, man misunderstandings really blow.
I'm so glad Tesshi and Mochizuki both made it through, minus points for Akazawa but alas I saw it coming after she goes mental. The glasses dude's motive really was to avenge Yukari, that sucked too (as in the fact that he died)
And I honestly thought everything was rushed since the school trip, since most of the deaths happened in here, shouldn't they at least give a bit more episodes to cover it? I guess for a 12 episodes anime, the ending was tied up rather nicely.
Overall I give Another 10/10 since I personally found this to be one of the few horror animes that kept me on the edge, kudos to the bgms for that

I read "Another" manga before finishing this last episode. I wanted Akazawa to stab Misaki fake eye like she did in the manga.


For a horror series, I kind of wanted to see more of Misaki x Sakaki moments.

Can anyone fill me in regarding Reiko being stab by someone who looks like Sakaki?

The episode was awesome.
But in the end nothing was solved and the reasons for calamity and Mei's powers are unknown...as well as some other things too.
If this was a visual novel I'd say the player didn't reach the True End.

Huh... Because they don't remember that she died? Also, is probably one of the students that died that year. Maybe Azakawa's cousin.

And no... She is NOT Kouichi's mother. She always treated him like a son and he treated her like his mother. He came back for Yomiyama just for her funeral.

I really enjoyed this show in the beginning the atomosphere was great, characters were likeable, and the deaths had a lot of weight to them. But as the show went on it just went downhill. I feel that the deaths became really silly and pointless by killing off characters that we don't know and therefore don't care about. The random explosion, chandelier, and the random pillar death was unncesseary.

I didn't like Akazawa's sudden personality shift into a psycho (if anyone was gonna stay calm in the situation I figured it would be her) because of that I really found it hard to be sad for her death. I really hated Mei's apathy to EVERYTHING that was going on around her, "oh someones trying to kill me I'll just ignore them and calmly walk somewhere else" she dosen't try to fight back, plead her case, or even run she just sits around and let's Sakakibara do all of that for her.

There were a lot of other thinigs that bothered me about this too. Why would Sakakibara call Mei in the middle of a burning and exploding building that's just completely idiotic. How did a lightning strike to the roof make the windows explode can that actually happen? On that how come Sakakibara and Mei came out of that completely unscathed but Akazawa was impaled multiple times. How did Reiko end up under those logs wasn't she unconcious in the mansion?

7/10 I enjoyed most of the show but if it wasn't for these last few episodes it would have gotten a 8/10 or even a 9/10.

I am amused. Liked the end. Good pacing, things were well-explained, Misaki getting development, Mochizuki and Teshigawara alive, everything went pretty well. 8/10



Now I'm just going to live you with this glorious gif of Mochizuki and Teshigawara:

I don't think so. They mentioned several times that Sakakibara's mother died just after he was born. And I guess that because Reiko and her mother were twins he felt like "the last part" of his mom was going away.

What I don't understand is

I can't believe that the anime trolled me like that. They could have killed another useless student, but noooooo, it had to be Akazawa.

Sure but the librarian remembered her death after the curse was lifted. He even described it again at the cementery.

This was a good anime overall.

It gets an 8/10 from me.

However it left one too many questions and the ending was just a tad weak.

I also thought that a couple of the deaths were "laughable" simply because they seemed so absurd and almost out of place.

But I really enjoyed this show so who cares ;)

Worst anime ever.

PAWorks demonstrates their talent @ making bad shows.

The main guy who forgot his memory of 18 months ago ? LOL ?
Pointless deaths, pointless dialogs...
The firsts episodes where "hey lol she has the same name as the one who died so maybe she's a ghost", ridiculous.
Then came the "i have questions but nobodys has answers episodes" and then, it became a killing spree...
No explanation about the curse...
In fact, this anime is just "there is a curse, people die, and after killing one random person, it stops" which is far less great than any fanfic I can find on the internet.

No, no. The manga's version of Reiko is the definition of hot. She is the pinnacle of perfection:

Ah and finally everything is cleared up.. not. LOL...

I honestly think Sakakibara has a twin.. I mean there's no reason to make the aunt's killer look like him and then there's the part where the twin haired girl gets helped by him yet he doesn't remember...
Either he was involved with the death of his aunt and because of that he forgot everything or he has a twin. Either way that's enough for a sequel~

Ps, I'm not puting spoilers. You're in the forum for the FINAL episode, no matter what there is going to be spoilers. ._.

Pretty much how I felt about everything! All my questions are the same. How could Mei still act with such a blank face? And for a while she knew who the "another" was, she could have saved so many lives. -_-

And Reiko was shown getting up after being unconscious sometime in the episode.

Damn, I had Akazawa pegged the whole time.

8/10 for me. Very thrilling, but I felt like something was missing....

The ending felt more bitter than sweet though. Most of their classmates died, and the curse will still return the next year. I think it would have been better if they found a way to permanently end the curse. Ah, oh well~

This anime was outstanding up to the last two episodes which were a bit too over-the-top and too direct rather than suspenseful and atmospheric. Anyway, it was a very great anime with fantastic direction, music and characters overall. 9/10

In the first episode, Sakakibara doesn't even remember coming to the town 1 1/2 years ago and meeting Akazawa, and neither did she. Akazawa only recalled after some time later in the series.

Is it just me or was the first half kinda off, hilarious sudden deaths, that idiot Kazami who seemed totally fine, Akazawa kicking the shit out of our main characters, students walking just fine in a building ona huge fire, Misaki and Kouichi together in one moment and in the next moment she is in the backyard, both of them fine while Akazawa got pierced?

I read the manga last week, so I thought they mabe would change the ending but they didn't, not that I was disappointed. I honestly did neither in the show nor in the manga notice that Reiko was Mikami, biggest troll ever but wasn't killing the conclusion. For those who didn't read it, check it out, it's super different regarding art (Reiko is fucking damn hot),most of the events (show got more or they did happen differently) and one major change which has been here spoiled already.
