  • I really enjoyed it.
    Another is essentially a mystery series. The students have to figure out which one in their class is causing the curse. It's good, but a warning: it's graphic and very dark. Definitely not for the happy story crowd. But if you like a dark, occasionally creepy story, give this one a go.

    Another - Great Series
    Another is an anime that takes place in 1998, and revolves around the calamity that started 26 years prior to the events of the show. It mainly focuses on one character, specifically, Kouichi Sakakibara, who moves to Yomiyama and attends school at Yomi North Junior High. There, he meets a strange girl named Mei Misaki, who dons an eye patch over her left eye, which conceals a glass eye the color ...

    An incredible anime filled with mystery
    Although this anime is definitely for a much older audience, those who can watch, will surely enjoy this anime. This is one of those anime that you should really consider watching if you enjoy a good mystery anime filled with action and adventure.

    A good show to watch, but there are some episodes that are best left alone for the weak of heart.

    Another Review (Quite the watch)
    This anime is one for a rainy night. It starts out slow and upholds the creepy ghost story aspect but by episode three you will get sucked into the curse like the other students. I will say that being a horror story lover this has to the best school curse anime I've seen so far. It is actually quite hard to scare me (without consequences) so taking this sort of Final Destination twist really drew ...

  • There were some slow
    moments but the show picks up later in the series and once you're hooked, it's hard to stop. This is Final Destination the way it should have been in anime form. It's a great show to kill a day at home.

    Another - A Horror Story with a few twists
    Another is a horror and suspenseful orientated story that tries to draw in it's audiences with unexplainable deaths linked to Class 3's mysterious calamity. While I enjoyed the story, I never was really scared at all. I feel like the opening credits and opening episodes try to make it seem like one of the main characters is a ghost. It isn't until the big reveal or the big plot explanation that ...

  • The beginning was solid but it got progressively worse.
    The first few episodes were excellent. They were very eerie and mysterious, but they started to get somewhat dull as the show progressed. Some of the "accidents" were pretty stupid (e.g. hit by a boat, umbrella through the throat). The ending in my opinion was also not that great. I wasn't expecting Reiko to be the dead one and I would have liked it to be someone else. I was disliked the most was ...

    Final Destination, done right.
    First off, I'm not a gore lover. I'm a comedy person. High school drama, romance, that sort of deal. If you've ever watched Toradora!, for instance, you'll know what got me hooked.

    However, while Another is in the high school setting, it's not a high school show. It's not funny, it's not anywhere along the lines of romance, and it's not supposed to make you feel good at all.

    Plot: ...

    Interesting, but not top of the line.
    As stated in the title of my review, "Another" is an interesting show, but certainly not top if the line. The show is NOT as gory and horrific as other have made it out to be. You never see more than copious amounts of blood. You see the moments leading to a death, but as the action occurs, the scene is focused on something else. There are anime WAY more gruesome than this one out there. If you ...
