Spoilers ahead. So many spoilers. Ruin the whole thing. You've been warned.


I finally sat down and watched Corpse Party last night. It started out pretty good, was getting into it. Then we have Seiko's death. And I sat there dumbfounded. It makes absolutely no sense. Even if I roll with Naho's explanation that she committed suicide where did she get the rope? How does she know how to tie a hangman's noose? Where is whatever she stood on to get herself high enough to hang herself? She goes from all upbeat to "I'mma kill myself" in a few seconds?

I spent the rest of the series waiting for some kind of explanation which totally distracted from the rest of the episodes. When it finally gets to Naomi's "trial" if I take the video literally, that she killed Seiko, it makes even less sense. Not only do all the same questions above apply but how would she manage to get Seiko up there, especially with her ankle? And if the video is just an illusion testing Naomi's soul then it's back to paragraph one and how Seiko killed herself.

Did I completely miss something? I know it's a bit petty to judge a series based on a single nonsensical scene but since it's only four episodes and they keep going back to it so it can't be forgotten it just really bugged me.

Outside of that pet peeve I enjoyed Corpse Party as a decent hack'n'slash, jump scare horror story.

Sachiko, possession, I forgot what we came up with back when the game first came out but we came up with some theories about Naomi and Tenjin and Sachiko.

The series actually goes through Book of Shadows and Blood Drive before finishing (both games), don't know if they were ever adapted to manga or OVAs.

Yes, the anime did ruin the whole thing. Play the games instead for a much fuller, more nuanced version of the story (that makes a lot more sense).
