    Interestingly different, but well made.
    Another is a uniquely made anime leaving you to question it's every aspect, and every character, making you unsure of what was going to happen next, and who was at stake of a mysterious curse happening within a newly transferred student's classroom. It's a fresh, new drama with plenty of horror thrown in.

    Story: 6/10
    The story of Another takes it's time to unravel. It took it's time to build ...

    A Truly Suspensful Mystery
    Another is a suspense mystery horror show that will leave you needing to see it all to the end! For all those that love mysterious supernatural tales of curses and death then this is for you! The only reason this didn't receive a full 5 stars is because of the ending. As many of the other commenters have mentioned, the ending lacks some 'common sense', but other then that this is well worth the ...

  • I recommend it to anyone who loves a good horror anime!
    Another is one of those animes that you'll love if you're a horror lover. Amazing story with beatiful art and sound but I really couldn't understand the reactions of the characters.
    So my rating is something like this:

    STORY: 4.5
    Amazing story, even if i really didn't like the ending, I really loved the connections and the whole concept of the anime. It was simply amazing.

    ART: 5
    I ...

  • Mystery meets horror
    To clarify, this isn't horror in the classic sense of what you would consider to be a horror story. It's more of an intense psychological thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat from episode 1 all the way until the very last second of episode 12, but is still horrifying in the way it is told.

    Trust me on this you need to stick around after the credits on the last episode.

    The show ...

    Final Destination meets Nightmare on Elm Street
    Pros:
    - story is an instant hook for those who are looking for something like this
    - decent number of characters means finding a favorite is fairly easy
    - story does a decent job lining up your thoughts with that of the protagonist
    - some deaths are seen a mile away, while a few are shockers
    - story is not afraid to hand down the death penalty on any character
    - music (or lack of in some ...

  • Black, just like my coffee.
    One of the first shows to truly give me goosebumps, with constant suspense leading to more and more questions and doubts.

    The occasional beach episode and somewhat dorky moments to appease to a certain fanbase, but stays true to the mystery and gore throughout the series.
    Highly recommend it.

  • Great, Dark and Compelling
    It may fall into some tropes (hence the four stars), but this is a ghost story that I can compare to a lot of the great horror movies in Japanese cinema.

    I was hooked by the first episode's cold opening alone when you're given a quick breakdown of the origins of the calamity and it just keeps getting better from there. It gets a little more complex, a little more bloody and a lot more ...

  • Thrilling and Scary !!! ;)
    If you like anime that gives you the chills this is the anime for you. "Another" is the type of anime that can be a great or bad anime depending on a person's perspective and type in anime but i'm sure a lot of you will like this anime if you look closely at the events. Though, this isn't the type a 10 yr old might understand just like that because of all the mysteriously magnificent story twists. ...

    Follow the Leader - Gore School Edition
    The umbrella scene, watched on YouTube, in the dark, at 3AM, compelled me to find this anime and watch it without stopping. So, I did.

    At first, I was a bit wary. What was going to make this anime different from every other one with a pale-skinned, odd girl and the average-looking main character? The suspense got to me. After being built up to knowing what happened to class 3, and having the ...

    Another, terrible, review. My opinion.
    This is my own personal opinion do not hate. This is also a review from when i first finished it (i have watched more anime now).

    Another – To say they dragged out the suspense is an understatement, I mean look at Higurashi they brought the suspense in the first few episodes of each arc, discounting the ova’s (but enough about Higurashi). I have to say the deaths were definitely the things that ...
