  • Lord, this anime....
    I was not sure about this anime after the first episode. I was a bit put off by the style and the pace. But, something happened. I was infected by the story and the characters and the tension as I continued to watch each episode with anticipation and anxiety. I've heard that the manga is different and, most say, better. Although I'll definitely check that out, the anime itself is a piece of art, ...

  • This anime is what it is, but you have to finish it to understand it
    This is one of those animes that you have to have a lot of patience but for me, I could not stop myself from clicking the next episode even though it is not particularly exciting. However, once you finish it, it feels complete and once all of your morals have been questioned, it takes a turn but feels complete.

  • Beautifully Disturbing
    The first thing that grabbed my attention in this anime was the rotoscoping, and to be honest, I didn't like it. After a few episodes, I couldn't picture the characters drawn any other way. The backround art is amazing, the music in this series is a 10/10, especially the ending theme.

    This is one of the most well put together animes I have ever seen, and I am really hoping for a second season.

    Dull, dull, dull, dull
    Although I enjoyed the animation style (captured through a technique called rotoscope, I have come to find out), the series is just plain dull. A dull, mostly unlikable protagonist makes poor decisions or allows someone else to make poor decisions for him, and then whines about it in angst for the rest of the episode (or in the case of one major decision, most of the series). The only point of ...

    Decent by itself, but compared to the manga, not so good.
    Here's the thing. I read the manga first, so my opinion of the show might be bias. However, I must say, the Manga is a MUCH better interpretation of the story IMO. The pacing of the anime is just all over the place, and it ends about a quarter of the way through the story. The ending of the anime shows flashes of things that Kasuga and Nakamura have yet to do, things that are very important in the ...

    I very much enjoyed this series
    What captivated me about this series is the style and mood of this anime. It is very different from most series that are put out and although I still like them, it is a refreshing change. Sometimes I want him to do the right thing but I root for destruction and inner turmoil at the same time. The music is great as well. I would love to actually read the Flowers of Evil poem to be able to better ...

    Atmospheric trhiller about everyday insecurities
    Schoolboys little mistake eats him inside and leaves him insecure about everything he has ever known.
    Story is in slice of life style and there are no supernatural elements in horror side. Series manages to create hopeless and lonely atrmosphere which is even more effective because of the realistic portrail of school life. Atmosphere is more even uderlined by uncanny artstyle and haunting ending ...
