    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

  • Engaging... but has pacing and character issues.
    To prospective viewers: Approach this blank and with an open mind, if you have an interest in psychological stories then you'll enjoy this.

    I enjoyed this, I really did, truly a good anime but falls short of being a great one; I think it struggles a little with tone and pacing issues, however, the plot itself is solid if perhaps a little out there, consider your milage when it comes to ...

  • High expectations BIG disappointment
    I thought this was going to be a creepy gory anime--a fight for survival type of thing but to my dismay it definitely wasn't... halfway through it got all melodramatic and there is still tons of characters introduced with 0 development or depth. All in all just a waste of time... ;-;

  • it's like Lost: The Anime
    did you watch lost?
    did hate the poor execution of the last few seasons and awful ending?
    WELL THEN DONT WATCH THIS.

    It was a great idea with a colorful cast who I wanted to love, but....it was just so bad after a few episodes. And then the ending. The ending! *vomits*

  • quite an odd and interesting anime
    This was an interesting anime. I wasn't able to fully indulge into it. I think improvements could be made, but I can't pinpoint what improvements. This needed a bit more of something to keep viewers hooked. I took about a 3 month break mid season. Overall, it was okay.

  • Not the greatest, not the worst
    I sort of liked it, but I can't see myself ever watching it again. Trying to figure out what was going on was fun but I absolutely HATED so many of the characters. It fell flat once it got to the point that the primary mystery was over and without good characters to hold it up, I was really only finishing it out of vague interest verging on obligation.

    Take note story writers, more characters does not equal better show
    Story; 30, yes 30, people get sick of their lives and decide to pack into a bus and move to Nanaki village, an urban legend where all your problems will fade away and you can start anew. Unfortunately for them, Psychology's a bitch

    Pros;
    - Concept wise, The series has a strong foundation to build the narrative around. Every person at some point has felt they would like to start over in ...

    Keep Your Minds Open
    The Important Things:
    - Starts off very mysteriously from the start, but overwhelming with the number of characters.
    - Becomes very addictive and binge-worthy
    - The whole idea of the show changes near the end, but still interesting.

    Meh, that's it. It's worth a watch if you have the time and like mystery/suspense animes, but it didn't blow me away.

  • Couldn't bring myself to watch a 4th episode
    3 episodes in and the plot had barely advanced, the characters had barely developed, and I ended up questioning whether it would be worth it to continue watching this any further.

    It gave off a "Lost" vibe in that sets up this grand mystery which I had doubts would ever be explained in a satisfactory way. And I felt it hard to really care about any of the characters.

    Part of that can ...
