Yeah it's really short, but it honestly doesn't need to be any longer.
I knew going in that it would be creepy, but I didn't expect it to be that scary. Partly because of the tension, partly because I just know something is going to happen, and mostly because of the animation style.
It's really good and it's a nice breather from all the other animes.

It was good, it was creepy, it was... watched with no sound because I something was going to jump out and scream, and I didn't need a heartattack. xD

It was just enough creepiness for my day! Four minutes a week, I think that's good for my system. I think their anime art style is awesome for the horror. I wonder what's gonna be next :O

Hand drawn cutout style, very retro, quite spooky, looks good!

I think it's really interesting, but not really scary just pretty creepy.

I hadn't really paid attention until I watched the first episode. Like the animation style! I've always like ghost stories, so I can't wait to see what's up next.!

This was cool. I think the audio could've been much creepier though.

But it's neat seeing something short enough that it has to concentrate on its core element to the point of being like a case study. Nothing is buried under miscellaneous or overlapping events; it's all contextualized in one direction.

I heard about this series before when CR added it. However, I'll probably marathon it after I read a good review after series has finished airing.

Art style was different, but just fine for this 1st ep; thought it wasn't too creepy or scary until...
