    I Wanted to Love It but it Just Fell Short
    This show has a wonderful premise but it really suffered from a narrative disconnect. This compounded with the number of characters and the inconsistent/illogical way that they act makes it difficult to get a feel for the characters.

    -Some Spoilers-

    The first episode introduced a lot of characters, some 30 in all. I assumed that they'd end up killing them off at a rapid rate, but I was ...

    Good Ideas, Bad Execution
    The Lost Village should have been right in my wheelhouse. It's got an intriguing premise (like Chaos;head or Ghost Stories), and a slasher movie vibe right from the start. The premise goes: a group of 20 or so young adults head off into the woods in an attempt to find a mysterious village where it is said that you can start anew. What's great about this idea is that it becomes very obvious that ...

    Sort of well made mystery/psychological anime.
    I binged watched the first few (5) episodes. I'm now up to date on episodes. Personally, for me, an oddball, this anime is decent so far. The setting and plot fit OK together and the dialogue elicits a sense or terror/mystery. The characters are a bit archetypal, however, I think that might be the point. Anime like these are few and far between and people throw their tomatoes at the stage because ...

    Interesting Premise, Butt Execution
    The setup is interesting for a sort of suspense mystery series, which is pretty uncommon in anime, but the characters are terrible. They act in ways that make no logical sense and come to completely absurd conclusions at a rapid fire rate. All the 30 characters are just bad anime archetypes. The mystery kept me coming back for a few episodes, but these kids are better off lost in their remote ...

    Good idea on paper, but still lacking.
    Thirty characters all hitting stereotypes with no time dedicated to develop them through the eight episodes I've watched. Tsundere is a tsundere, lovey dovey couple is a lovey dovey couple, flirty girl is flirty, fat guy is a fat guy - there's no spice or interesting characters, they're all cardboard cliches. There are far to many and they try to put the spotlight on more than they know what to do ...

    Nice idea, Bad performance
    This show was a nice idea at the start. Too bad all the characters are very annoying. All these characters have some sort of problem with them, and by that I mean they cant deduce any logical thing by themselves. The whole story is led by the characters absurd conclusions that they're drawing from their imagination. Not only are the characters very annoying, but the story is driven by them being ...

    Le village perdu by Gilbert Dupé?
    Judging from Episode 1, it looks like we're in for a telling of (or a story inspired by) the French story by the same name. If you enjoy psychological suspense thrillers, you'll probably enjoy this series.

    Art / Animation
    Nothing remarkable, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. In a suspense-thriller, you don't want to take the viewer out of the moment. If your attention pulled from ...

    Don't be swayed by the bad reviews. Decent show.
    Just got done watching Ep. 5. And it might just get weirder. So far it's been a well put together show. A little too much back and forth talking but the show has about 30 characters so what do you expect. From the first episode I didn't know what to expect. Maybe a dark comedy, maybe? But as you watch it turns into a standard thriller. I've enjoyed it. I hope more people check it out. I mean this ...

    A lot of lost potential
    It had a lot of potential to be interesting but the problem was i was expecting it to be like Higurashi and all those other anime that love to kill their cast off lol, if not that i was atleast expecting more or less an actual monster because of curtain parts, at first it was also creepy but later when we come to find out
    ...

    A good way to kill time.
    The reviews are mixed for this one because I believe it's an 'in between' kind of series. The premise was very promising to a specific genre of horror/thriller/slasher but it quickly turned supernatural and I think rather than being unexpected it just felt like an unfulfilled promise to most people.
    That being said, the story is quite intriguing by itself and the main/reoccurring support ...
