Synopsis
30 young men and women who came together on a shady bus tour. The tour's destination: an elusive, and possibly non-existent village called Nanakimura. In Nanakimura, one can lead a utopian existence, free of the world's obstacles... or so it was rumored.

The bus headed deep into the mountains, carrying 30 people each harboring their own expectations and wounds in their hearts...

What they had arrived to was an uninhabited village with the lingering faint scents of life, even though it was falling apart.

Just what is the truth of Nanakimura? (Source: ANN, edited)

Pretty interesting synopsis that doesn't fit with the PV.

Ofc, I'll give the first eps a shot & see if it will be worth it watching further.


I'm thinking the PV hints more towards the joy the passengers are feeling. What damaged soul DOESN'T want an escape from real life troubles? I think the horror comes in later, when they actually arrive.

Now I've seen the PV, most my interest has evaporated. It felt like when I watched the trailer for that Lazer Team (?) movie. A really cool thumbnail, then I watched the trailer and felt like it's just another pile of shit. This was the same. Interesting visual art, then I watched the PV and lost almost all my interest in it. Hope for another Shirobako/IBO is the only thing that's keeping my interest afloat.

I get the feeling this will be one of those Anime that try to be as edgy as possible...which I hope I'm wrong because synopsis sounds interesting.

This seems interesting, I don't know why, but I get a Battle Royale feeling from the preview, which makes me even more interested, I'll watch it.

Generic horror synopsis, the hit-or-miss Mizushima, and Mari Okada! The worst best anime since Game of Laplace is on its way!

No thank you. I'll stick to my plan of watching no anime in 2016.

This sounds good.
Will watch.

You thought there was a decent studio behind this work but



The real question is.

Will it top this masterpiece comedy trainwreck?

It would be good.

It feels like something that if its fast its gonna be shit.

They either go fast or leave side characters untouched

Story sounds ok, but the music will be great.

This show should be worth a try.

Dec 28, 2015 9:17 PM by Shigure

Premise sounds really interesting. That PV though...

Dec 28, 2015 9:06 PM by mirana

Horror anime huh? would give it a shot i guess.

Dec 28, 2015 9:04 PM by UpperCat

That synopsis has me sold.

But I'm hoping it's nothing like M3, because it reminds me of it.

Dec 28, 2015 8:18 PM by Mayuka

The synopsis is really interesting. I hope this is going to be amazing.

Dec 28, 2015 8:15 PM by SecretDinosaur

The premise is interesting but the cast is too big. 30 people? Considering the trend nowadays, this is either a one or two cour series. How are they gonna develop those characters in such a short time span?

I'm indifferent towards Mari Okada. She wrote the horrible AnoHana but she also did NagiAsu which I liked. Can't wait for this. I hope such a promising premise won't be ruined by bad execution.

Dec 28, 2015 6:12 PM by Tenshi_Shura

Sounds pretty good to me. I'll keep an eye on this.
