    Another is not just another anime
    This show is as horrific as it is brilliant. If you want to see an anime that is in a class all of its own, this is for you. The show is basically a gruesome massacre and is not for the faint of heart and should be avoided if you are not okay with brutal killing. The mystery is compelling to the point where you will not want to pull yourself away from your screen until it is over.

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Sometimes more funny than scary. :)
    This anime is good, not great but deserves to be watched because of its atmosphere. It really sets a good dark theme sense to it. It sometimes makes you want to scream at the mere idiocy of some of the characters, but in a good way. not a top 10 anime but if you like a little blood and final destination like deaths then you will like this.

    scary and frightening, but good!
    The show starts out with the main character, Kouichi Sakakibara, being hospitalized right before the start of the new school year. But once he gets out of the hospital, he finds out about a mysterious curse going around class 3-3, the class he was put in.

    Throughout the anime, you uncover more about the truth of the curse and what's behind Mei's eyepatch. There are also quite a lot of gruesome ...

    Suspense, suspense and more suspense! I never knew what was coming!
    What can I say about this show? It definitely kept me guessing until the very end. Very graphic and not for the light-hearted, Another definitely is one of my favorite "dark" animes. The basis of the show is unlike any other that I have ever watched and character development is brilliant. If you're looking for a psychological thriller, stop right now because you've found it!

    Dark and Creepy and not just the plot
    The art throughout the series is consistent in it's dark and run down look. It creates an appropriate atmosphere for the actual story. Add in a room full of creepy dolls and the right music and you're all set.

    Otherwise the story line is basic at best. Our protagonist just transferred in to the one classroom with the darkest history. Apparently the class is cursed with one extra (dead) student ...
