Horror anime always sticks with me for some reason. And Another completely nailed it.
Another is about a boy who moves into a new town and enrolls in Yomiyama North’s class 3, which has been under a curse for 26 years. He is immediately interested in Mei Misaki, an eyepatch-wearing girl who doesn’t seem to exist to the rest of the class. But the fact that he is interacting with her causes the curse to begin again and every month, someone connected to the class dies…
I liked the fact that, for almost entire story, the viewer was on the same page as the main character. We didn’t know what was wrong with the class, and we didn’t understand why everyone was ignoring Mei Misaki. The ending was done well – also, I would have never guessed any of that was going to happen. Oh, and now I’m afraid of staircases because of the umbrella scene.
For some reason I started laughing during some of the horror scenes. Either it was nervous laughter, or I’m seriously evil. Some of them were way more gruesome than others (take everything that happened in the hotel, for example, versus the heart attacks). I’m still not sure what the relevance of the dolls were, though. To freak people out?
My favorite character was Tomohiko Kazami, the class officer for class 3. Something about him made me like him a lot, and I was disappointed that he wasn’t very main. I will believe that he survived for now, until I read the novel and know for sure.
Sorry for the big post gap! I’ll just be finishing up some things I dropped in the next week, but a Hetalia: Axis Powers review should come soon.
