Weird and creepy, but very promising overall. Tons and tons of characters. Reminded me a little of Battle Royale. Will be interesting to see how this one goes.

Episode 1

I was rolling my eyes a little at the nursery rhyme part, talk about edgy and pretentious. I thought they set the tone pretty well already with the Hippopotamus song and the basketball blowing up (which was a great, tense scene). No need for overkill.

ANYWHO. I'm intrigued with the mystery and I want to know what this Nanaki Village is all about. Will keep watching for now!

The bus ride makes me curious about how the irl one from the anime's crowdfunding campaign will go.

For some reason, I just keep thinking they're going to meet Red XIII there.

The Lost Village / Mayoiga / EP 1 Look Before You Leap



I am trying to be subjectuve on this first episode. I get a combo of Rampo Kitan: Game of Laplace / THe Pertfect Insider mysteries meet huge casts Assassination Classroom (Outcasts ) / Durarara!! (Trying to fit in ) feeling

I dont know if that was the smoothest debut so I looked at the Cast / Staff to see common links or strengths It didnt seem to set up well sans a couple of VA's

The cast seems to be a lot of newcomers but there tow VA's that have roles in two of the shows I mentioned . I say this because some good animes always strong VA's

Tatsuhisa Suzuki ((The) Perfect Insider (TV) as Yukihiro Yamane) as Valkana. ( The rowdy / outspoken member )

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=14071

Hiromi IGARASHI ( Durarara!! Mikage Sharaku ) as Lion ( another outspoken member) So you have 2 strong VA's to form some king of base around.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=34411

I guess the other VA's will have some time in the story as some have mutiple roles



http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=18052

The weak point ( maybe ) is the combo of Director: Tsutomu Mizushima
Series Composition: Mari Okada as both dont have no common projects but for Tsutomu Mizushima who worked on and did good work on Shirobako / Prison School would have made a smoother entry episode.

I feel like any one of these people can just snap and everyone will start killing each other.

These people would have no problem fitting into Hinamizawa Village.

Anyways...

Hmm.. it both was and wasn't what I was expecting. I did start to enjoy it more once it started to get darker so hopefully it continues down that path. Misaki and Lion are great but, unfortunately, Mitsumune isn't. They've made it quite obvious there's more to him than meets the eye but he's such an annoying character so far that the focus on him could seriously derail the whole series.

I'd say it wasn't the strongest of premieres but there's some real promise there as long as it sticks to it's obvious strengths and manages to avoid it's glaring weaknesses.

I'm feeling energy from Corpse Party and When they Cry. Or is that too extreme?

The good news about too many characters to remember? Most of them are likely to die, so that's one issue solved

Agree with others - not the strongest start, a set up that was good in the dark places, a little annoying outside of that (especially Mitsumune). The dark mystery tone is holding the potential, so we'll see what comes out of that.

Be grateful for the one life you have and make the most out of it.

Hmm.. Well. It was dark, mysterious and a bit creepy. A lot of people. Most of them more or less unhinged in some way.

So guessing this will turn ugly

As for what seems to be our MC.. yeah. Kinda annoying. But that's describing most of the cast really . I'll keep watching. For now.

That was... interesting I suppose.


Sick girl and loli Lion were cute.

We'll see where the bus takes us.
