  • Very good and eerie.
    Another is an anime that I think was pretty good because I liked the atmosphere,the plot,the colors,and the characters. I loved the ending and the begging but the only problem i had with this series was in between episodes 5-7 I got bored but the story line goes up hill and very after episode 7. I also forgot to mention in this review I also love the theme song.

    A solid start and middle, but the climax leaves something to be desired
    Having read the novel the anime is based on, the first 3/4 or so of the show did a fairly good job adapting the book and keeping the tone and atmosphere consistent, however in the last 3 or so episodes I felt the series took a pretty big hit due to certain deviations from the original novel.

  • Quality show, quality feels
    I gotta say, this show is near the top of my favorites.

    First off, no CG. That, in and of itself, means so much. As well, the art style of the show was certainly a welcome change from the usual bright colors and shiny-ness of your average seasonal show, which really helps set the mood of the show. Combined with haunting and surreal music, it creates an atmosphere with an aura of tension and ...

  • Great horror mystery
    Was a great watch and highly recommend. It is gory so come ready for that so you are not caught by surprise. The story isn't too predictable which is a great thing for most shows. The mystery of figuring out the plot was great and the transitions between each episode had me clicking the next episode throughout the night. Hope you enjoy!

  • Everything is unexpected
    This is a wonderful anime. I plan to read the novel soon as I enjoyed this so much. The characters were all so interesting, you thought you knew what the storyline would be and then, someone dies. It was terrific in my opinion, though not for the faint of heart. I was *cough cough* not used to this type of gore and violence type anime, so if you're squeamish, probably avoid this one. The music ...

  • Looking for a mystery, horror, thriller? This is it.
    This show makes you not just wonder what is happening but also makes you question every conclusion you and the characters make, as to what is occurring in this small village with Class 3's students. It does not shy away from showing the gruesome side of death, and for sure has many psychological themes which will ravage your mind time and time again. It is a fantastic show, If you like Tokyo ...

  • Intense, Intensified, Intensifying
    Another is an anime made for people who love Horror stories and if you like suspense, this is your anime. The plot of this anime is so good, from the beginning to the very end I was on the edge of my sit. The story started off real slow and climb its way to the very top and then just jumped off of the cliff. The ending is so good and the unexpected twist, but I'm kind of expecting that ending ...

  • A great anime for rookies
    To start with, i felt like this was the animated version of Final destination, considering how you can tell when someone is about to die in a ridiculous "accident". Then the plot got a lot deeper and confusing. Every episode ends on a cliffhanger, so for the last week or so, I've gotten far too little sleep.

    But in short: This anime is great. I'm not actually a big fan of anime myself ...

  • You'll never look at umbrellas the same again
    Hubby and I finished watching Another last night! And by finished, I mean we started it at dinner, and then marathon-ed it all evening because we just couldn't stop watching!

    Another is a horror/mystery anime based off of a novel. It's about a middle school class that is cursed! The anime was really good, with nice animation, spooky music, tons of bloody, and lots of mystery. The mystery gets ...

  • Make the Pain Go Away
    I've watched this all the way through and left wondering what was the train wreck I just witnessed.

    First of all, the beginning was well done leading the main protagonist though a maze of social interactions between the students and the creepy situation that he was slowly getting dragged into. The story-telling was competent enough piling on small clues and red herrings that kept me intrigued ...
