I'm looking forward to it, but if it's anything about the last Corpse Party OVA, it'll be a big no thanks.

Yeah, I disagree entirely.

There's nothing stopping anime from incorporating great horror. I think anime is actually more well equipped as a medium to show great horror than live action film is. Especially when it comes to the j-horror type stuff...

The game is great...but at its core it is an interactive virtual novel with great voice acting, which naturally converts quite easily in to an anime.


Have you played both Corpse Party:Blood Covered and Corpse Party:Book Of Shadows or just Book Of Shadows? Because Blood covered is far from a "interactive virtual novel"

Making something insanely gory isn't scary. It just makes it grotesque. Blood covered actually covered horror with the music,setting and plot. Taking control of the characters as you walk aimlessly through school trying to find a way out,being chased by ghosts and other such things and being scared of the fact that if you read the wrong thing you WILL die. That is how the game captured horror.


Obviously I've played and beaten the first one to 100% completion.

I still stand by my words.

Bit pixel graphics aren't exactly horrifying no matter what is going on with the screen.

I hope you don't mean this, because it's pretty obvious it's going to be several times that of the first OVA (are you talking about the violence?).

The trick to the games was that most of the violence is implied, rather than shown. Best use of sound that I have experienced in a video game, and the voice actors give 110% to sell it.

This looks really good. I don't even think Higurashi or Hellsing were this gruesome, I can't wait!

I think Higurashi suffered a bit from a boringly generic art direction. It's not that the rest of it wasn't pretty good (it was alright), but I mean...come on...it looks so bland. I think in another thread it was mentioned and touched on briefly that great art direction can really buff up a dark anime for several reasons.



Yeah...the scary of Corpse Party in my opinion was your imagination doing all the work. All the name tags and the brutal deaths you don't get to see happen but read about in left behind notes or stuff on the walls. Running from 16 bit ghosts and crazed NPCs all with dopey pathing wasn't frightening so much as at the most an lol-worthy thrill.

In the end the voice actors play a massive role in your likely investment in the characters...and once that investment happens the game is even better because now you're cheering them on, hoping they survive, etc.

Kurumi has that...pure of heart reasoning behind the sadistic stuff she does-type thing going for her. Clearly the means by which she carries out her will is not appropriate but it's always something...childish and heart breaking that sets her off.

She's obviously got baggage.
