Sup 4th floor.


Just a slight notice, anyways, I thought the first episode was pretty good. I look forward to the next one heh.


In Japan there are no 4th floors especially in hospitals, In Cantonese number is phonetically similar to death so it is considered bad luck ;)

As for this anime, I like it so far, can't wait for another episode. When is it coming out, and on which days? :D

EDIT:

There is also absence of number 9 in Japan since it similar to pain


You learn something new everyday!

I just couldn't resist...

You remember when Mei Misaki said:
“They associate your name with death.”

Do you wonder why? Well here is the answer...


Kobe, Japan June 1999:

It's the last week of May, when students and teachers arrive to school they find the decapitated head of a murdered eleven years old boy on the stairs outside the main entrance. On Friday June, 6 a local newspaper receives a letter from the murderer. In this letter he threatens to slay three more "vegetables" each week unless the police manages to catch him. The murderer claims that he want revenge on the tough Japanese educational system and this is why he has placed the boys head in front of the school entrance. The letter was signed "Seito Sakakibara", and this might be part of the game he says he's playing with the police. "This is my real name and not a puzzle", he says in the letter. He also mocks the police for not being determined enough in their search for him.

Seito can mean pupil or student in Japanese and is seldom or never used as an actual name. There were also one or several messages found in the mouth of the decapitated boy, but the police has not commented on what this/these said.

In March two little girls were attacked by a man with a knife, not far from the school where the head was found. One of the girls later died from her wounds. Police say they have no proof it's the same killer, but there are circumstances indicating it could be. The prime minister of Japan has demanded that all available resources are put in to try and stop the killer.

Interesting story. So, in other words, whoever commited the murder 26 years ago @ Yomiyama Middle School has a name associated or connected with the incident.

Well, since this is set in April 1998, things might not be looking to good for Kouichi Sakakibara' future.

Not that it will be similar or exactly like them, of course, but 'Another' will probably be able to fit in with other modern anime horror series in one's collection with 'Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni' , 'Umineko no naku koro ni', 'Denpa teki na Kanojo', and 'Loups=Garous'. 'Shiki' had unique art. Kara no Kyoukai had amazing art and sits alone there. The 'Jigoku Shoujo'' trilogy might appeal more to fans. Mouryou no Hako', 'Aoi Bungaku', 'Kurozuka' and 'Samurai Horror Tales Ayakashi' might be for selective viewers. 'Ghost Hunt' and 'Ghost Hound' also would appeal to a different viewer perhaps. 'Ookami Kakushi', ' Kemonozume' and 'Shinigami No Ballad' are light on the horror I would say. Most other titles seem dated now. As for vampires, most of the time it is really more of an action/adventure series. In any event, if this follows the Manga it should be worth watching.

Ye, definitely better than blood-c as I was actually a bit confused on the plot. Best animation for this year so far tbh for Another imo.
