Dark, weird, I like it . I really need something bloody, the last season was to "sweet" in my opinion.

Ep 1

I'm loving the atmosphere of this first episode. There is an ominous feeling that's oozing off of everything. Some of the subject matter is decidedly dark, and the characters are taking a strangely optimistic look on it, like starting life over again and suicide notes... Really creepy but interesting for sure. Everybody's got baggage of some sort, even the driver. Can't wait to see where it's headed, even if there are a ton of characters.



Just a little, Masaki.



I suppose its a good thing that most of the names are strange, it'll probably be easier to remember them that way. Assuming these characters will live long enough, anyway. I'm enjoying the "main" characters quite a bit, surprisingly. Lion is easily my favorite though.

Wow, there are a lot of characters lol. But I loved the atmosphere of this show and the differing perspectives of the individual characters. Anticipating the next episode later tonight!

Episode 2

Those youngsters sure aren't thinking with their heads there, and the bus driver has every right to be pissed off for being forced to keep pushing forward even though he knows it's a bad idea. The kids finally arrive at the ghost town to start their new lives trying to figure out what to do, and the bus driver decides to stay behind to watch over the youngsters. And now, people are starting to disappear with Masaki and Yottsun having gone missing. That's a better episode than the first now that everybody is at the village and all of the shit is about to begin with two people missing. It is still in the setup stage, but it looks like big things are about to go down.

Episode 2

I still really think this show should be better for a 2-cour story.

Either way, it looks like there's a lot of unanswered questions. Like...who were the people that arrived at that village before? What happened to them now? Why do I have a feeling that the bus driver is hiding something? What happened to two individuals that disappeared? And how?

Not bad for the episode but I really hope the show makes proper time to fill in the holes. Meanwhile Mitsumune seems to be attracting some of the ladies. I'm going to designate him as sort of the "main guy" now in this series.

Not as creepy or dark as some of the first episode was, but a stronger episode overall (possibly largely because it didn't focus so much on Mitsumune alone). And is the "black" guy really gonna die first? Hehe

Anyway, anyone else find the music, specifically the bit as they were crossing the bridge at the beginning and the bit at the end, really jarring and out of place? Not only did it seem too loud in the sound mix but it also didn't fit the mood at all. I think the first bit was supposed to be creepy but it just sounded more hokey, and the end bit was obviously supposed to be scary but it just sounded.. bad.

Episode 2

This series is either going to crash and burn or end up becoming a nice series.

It stated for 1-cour, but I wouldn't be surprised if it ended up being 2-cour. There are many things to explore based on the foreshadowing. Looking forward to it

Episode 2

Hmm. They didn't show us what the bus driver saw after everyone abandoned him so... either he is being forced or bribed or he saw something incriminating? My guess is on the former two.

I want to stay until the mystery kicks up but it's just not compelling enough to keep watching, so this is it for me.

I thought the bus driver was dead once he was left alone and someone/something started banging on his bus. I wonder what happened that made him rejoin everyone and start acting so calm. Something's definitely in this village and it's going to start killing people off one by one. Just watch.

Masaki looks like she's the main heroine so there's no way she's the first one dead. Yottsun will probably die by himself. That's the fate of a fodder character.

I wonder if there's going to be any Mitsumune x Hayato yaoi fan art after this episode...

I think
This is the stupidest tour, becuase your tour guide doesn't even have a concrete clue where this place is and their informant is a mystery.
What kind of tour is that ? Does anybody has a compas or anything ? Does anyone even have a topographical map ?

In high school , I had a military training in reading maps and finding my way in unknown locations. To me there is no logic in this tour not unless this was planned this way And Not unless there is a telephone tower nearby then you can use your phone gps .Or else its the map,compass, sun , the moon and the stars.

but it seems like it isn't. And the driver changing his mind was very fishy, I will never trust him.
Also why were they going to this place when they don't even know the road condition and why is the driver blaming the accident on others . What kind of stupidity is that.
Sorry for repeating the word stupid becuase there are so many stupid things I see.
It was really painful watching this episode

Based on these first two episodes, this whole show might be a bit hard on you.

The first was fine but this was painful.
I don't think I will be watching this show becuase I think everything will go downhill from here and it will be filled with a lot of thing that are really stupid. . I don't like this kind of mystery writing , its driving me nuts.

It' feels like DRRR Ketsu / way too much dialouge / there is a hint of something evil sneaking around.

It could get better but the episode dragged on > I think what some reviwers sais was right the Director: Tsutomu Mizushima and
Series Composition: Mari Okada may not be the best mix!

Fairly weak cliffhanger isn't it? We know they aren't going to kill off the female protagonist. Rapper dude is number one on the "most likely to die first" list now though.
