Oh nice! I just got done reading the three volumes so It'll be interesting to see how they adapt it.

Jul 17, 1:25 PM by ScrambledEggs123

it's a monthly so each chapter is like close to 40 pages plus there's a few side stories with the volumes so I think it should be fine it will probably end on a decent note

Enough. I think this will be a typical "read manga if you want to know what's next" season.

Looks good, already sold on that twin tail loli alone.

This looks kind of cool. I think the anime version may end up being better than the original manga for me as I find the manga series a bit crude for some reason. Anyways I think it's pretty cool that they are producing more horror anime series.

Why am I looking so forward to this. I don't know if it's Aqua (Sora Amamiya) as Miko or just the cuteness in the show. I mean, if you're reading the manga you'll see how cute she actually is when she's scared to sh*t. I just want to protect her.


Well, the trick of "getting you attached to a cute character and then scaring you with the danger that threatens them" was used back in Higurashi.


Well compared to Higurashi, I don't want to protect them, they're not cute.
