That was actually terrible.

I understand that it's only five minutes long, but the animation style was lacking so much. It didn't seem like something Studio Deen would do. Not to mention the anime didn't flow well. It was very disjointed and it felt as though more dialogue and explanation should have happened before the ending event.

Not to mention it just kinda ends. Very little lead up to an ending. It just ends and cuts straight to the ending.

Based on the first episode, there is no way that this can turn out well. A horror anime should not be attempted in under 5 minutes per episode.

I really liked the ending song though. The opening, not so much, but I did enjoy the ending.

If we wait for the 12 episodes maybe won't be such a bad anime.

But damn, what a hell did i just watch.

Well...um Studio Deen animated the Higurashi franchise so I was expecting a bit more considering that. It's nothing to write home about sure but a total watch time of 1 hr isn't going to hurt. Maybe it will entice me to get the drive to find the manga...maybe

Problem is, without the OP/ED you'll only have 36 minutes of the story, not 1 hour.

I really like the OP and ED, but in my opinion there really isn't much hope for this anime.

If only the first episode had as much detail as the manga had so far. This first episode was just too vague and if i hadn't read it first i would've been confused.

I'd rather this have been about 3 full length episodes than a bunch of short ones. The story in the manga was already weak, but now the episode length ruins the effect and really I don't think any horror anime would work well as a short series.

The short length isn't working at all. Can't say it airing on TV does either, what's with all the censoring.

Bad job, Pupa.

Bad job.

A little disappointed because it was so short! It has so much potential to turn into a cult classic.

I sort of liked it. I'm just wondering why the brother has those marks on his face/arms.

I didn't have a problem with the censoring. Wow a whole two seconds of censorship. Boycott DEEN. It's not like they censored it and removed all the blood from the scene. Hell, there was blood everywhere and it was even spraying onto the screen. Even the fucking dog wasn't censored when it exploded.

This is like watching TV and getting mad when they bleep out the word "fuck."

Nope, as expected the 5 minutes (3mins minus the OP and ED) won't do, non SoL/comedy shows just don't work as shorts.
I'll watch a couple of episodes more to see wether it turns out better but the hopes are really slim.

Creepy And This show is just shit WTF?
'"Hearts, you say? You Humans are always so quick to speak of such things. As though you carry your hearts in the very palms of your hands. But this eye of mine perceives all. There is nothing that it overlooks. If this eye cannot see a thing, then it does not exist. That is the assumption under which I have always fought. What is this "heart"?

This was so bad orz if I hadn't read the manga I would be lost as hell.

Most likely I won't follow it, but rather I will watch the whole thing in a marathon when it ends.

Shit. The whole purpose of this show was the crudelty and the creepy feel but .. Censoring = no fun.

Go read the manga, at least there are not censorships there.

SO KIDS IF A LADY TELLS YOU TO GO AWAY WHEN YOU SEE RED BUTTERFLIES, THEN DO AS SHE SAY.

God fucking dammit... I waited so long for a grotesque horror anime, something I'm a huge fan of in manga, and something we almost NEVER get in anime...

... and it's only four minutes long and censored to shit.

I haven't actually read the manga, but I feel like this has some potential, you know, if it weren't four fucking minutes long and censored to shit. I mean, I'll still watch it to see where it goes, and again, it's just four motherfucking minutes long, so it's not a huge waste of time.

Also, the minute I saw the dog my first thought was "HOLY SHIT! IT'S THE THING!"

I facepalm at this show with all the strength I can muster.

It is beyond obvious that somewhere production stalled and they are just airing the unfinished piece of shit this is.

I am beyond upset that there was actually a time when I was actually excited about this "creepy" anime.

This is the anime version of a D class hollywood film. In memory of the poster above me I will now shout fuck ten times to get across my god damn displeasure: FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK

dude you're kidding right? they censored the only important scenes from this episode, people said they adapted it poorly, the story didn't flow at all, the animation is bad, art is o-k.. I don't have 1 positive thing if not for the art.

The adaptation wasn't that bad, they just rushed it a ton. Loved how big bro got like a full 10 secs of screen time, while in the manga he hogs most of the panels (in chapter 1). Main problem is the source material sucked

lol now I see what people mean when they say it's a bad adaption.

I guess I'll put this in a spoiler, but it should have been covered before the initial transformation scene:

Well.... that sucked. What a shame. It's short and censored to hell. What's the point in watching this? Damn it, I was hyped for this when it was first announced, but now... I rarely say this, but just save your time and read the manga.

Well, after reading the manga chapter of this episode I can say that 4 minutes aren't enough. The first chapter of the manga was a 10/10 for me. They skipped a lot of important scenes and the few they used where heavily censored. I hope that they'll fix everything by the next episode, because otherwise this would be a really sad thing.

this isnt disappointing, if something was disappointing then that implies there was ever potential in the first place
