  • 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 ...

  • "Another" is not just another anime
    Another is an original type of anime series with extra focus on original.
    With that I mean it's a really interesting story wich holds you basicly on your seat edge wanting more. More of the intence energy it succeeds with bringing you on scare and having that little mystery going on. On many accounts one of my favourites.

  • A true masterpiece of anime!
    An amazing show! A very original piece that I enjoyed watching. It had a wonderful and intriguing plot and mysterious characters who you allways wanted to know more about.I would rate this title a four out of five. I would have rated it five stars but the transitions between some things were unrealistic and not as well as they could have been made. But other than that it was an amazing show that I ...

    Help, I think I am in love
    It's rare to find a good mystery story that is not predictable or so obscure that the clues it gives you make no sense when the truth is revealed. This is one of those rare gems of a story. It's worth every second of your time to watch this anime, trust me on this.

    If you are looking to be scared by this anime that isn't really going to happen. While it is in the horror genre, there isn't a lot ...

  • I wasn't sure, but I couldn't stop.
    Graphic violence (blood; mutilated bodies). Very creepy.

    Amazing that they (thankfully) accomplished all this in one season: ever deeper character development, slow reveal with actual unexpected twists, a constant feeling that I almost understand what's going on, an ending that I did not anticipate,

  • Came for the drama and stayed for the horror
    This was my first genuine horror anime that I've ever watched and it's really set the bar high. I was telling a co-worker about the gore and the crazy deaths and she was all O_O and I'm there flapping my arms with enthusiasm. Visually impressive with a soundtrack that I liked so much I made it my ringtone this is one I'm going to be recommending to pretty much everyone.

  • Enjoyable but flawed
    I really enjoyed watching this show, which is why I gave it a 4 star. Honestly, it was a good time.

    It was a little slow to start and I was frustrated in the beginning by everyone just ignoring Sakakibara's questions... But you know, if they had just answered him it wouldn't have been much of a mystery...

    In the middle things started getting pretty exciting, and I will admit that I ...
