    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 ...

  • Captivating tale of how easily one can be influenced
    it was really dark.. but the story line and the love between the characters was hard not to faun over;however, what was most captivating was the way it showed how easily ones mind can be influenced,and how the clearest of minds are often often looked down upon because they won't conform.

    Wonderfully Dark Anime
    Most anime I watch doesn't have the power to keep me watching more, that is not true for this anime. I found myself unable to stop as I kept telling myself "one more episode, then bed... ok one more.... ONE more" While you will be kept guessing who the "dead person" is though out this anime, I will say, it became obvious to me in the last five episodes or so.
    While I was required to put in my age ...

    Definitely worth a watch
    I marathoned Another over the course of 24 hours, not because I had any intention of doing so, but because this show has intriguing cliffhangers mastered. If you're as easily grabbed as I am, be prepared to buckle in for the long haul.

    The first ten episodes are remarkably well-paced, which is one of the most elusive traits in the entire anime industry, especially on 12- and 13-episode shows. ...

  • Overall a Pretty Awesome Show
    The anime is simply amazing, I would give it 4.5 stars if I could.

    Another is a really well thought-out, carefully crafted mini-series with great suspense, climax and a fairly surprising ending. The plot was amazingly intriguing and not quite like any other anime I have seen before. It keeps the viewers glued to the screen in exhilaration, suspense and perhaps fear as well. The ...
