    Chasing visions in the mist.
    End of season revise.

    This started out with an interesting concept, but fell short of being more than passable. While it does explore the dramatic changes that can happen under mob mentality under tense circumstances, it also shows individual reactions to internalized fears and trauma. I think it was hindered in part due to the large cast, but probably more so to the underdeveloped script. ...

    Seems very intriguing so far!
    Possibly the start of something great!~
    Even though there is so much more of the story to unfold, I can tell just by seeing the character designs and atmosphere of this anime that I will like it!~
    I highly can't wait to see more of this and hopefully this anime will have some great character development! (I'm a sucker for some good character development/designs)

    It could be good, it could be bad. Episode 1 wasn't a good hook
    Going to start with this part first. Anime like this: Gantz, Perfect Insider, etc. The thing about those shows is they all had a compelling aspect of the plot that created drama for them. In Gantz they didn't need to talk themselves into drama, they had these crazy death-machine aliens to kill that introduced drama in a natural way. This show has... nothing. I have a feeling this is an anime where ...

    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 ...

    Reminds me of "Reality TV Show"
    I'm giving it 4 stars for now, although so far, none of the characters seem all that memorable. But everyone has wanted to start over at one point or another, so it may end up being a good story. When I visited Japan, I actually did not want to come back to the US. It felt much safer there to me, very comfortable. It was kind of my Lost Village.

    As far as hooks go, episode 1 wasn't one I'd say was reliable in getting you "hooked", but I've known anime that have horrible pilots and get there eventually...
    I'm not here to leave spoilers or anything, but the first episode left you, kinda... hanging. I'm sure it will get better, I mean there have been anime that seem like they'll never make it and yet they somehow do. Take OPM for example, it didn't have that great of a pilot, but look how far it went! I'm just saying to not judge it one the first episode too much.

    Like a reality TV show, only worse.
    After starting off with a ridiculous premise, I was hoping to see at least some joy in this show, but when it takes itself so seriously, I can't forgive a lot of the frankly poor writing choices made with the overall setup. It's trying so hard to be thoughtful, and yet it's executed with tired old character cliches that completely spoils the suspension of disbelief.
    Seriously, it's like an anime ...

    Mysterious. I Love it!!
    i really so far enjoyed this show very much. I don't have a problem with slow beginnings but if your looking for immediate action, then this might not be a fit for you but i'm sure that after the 1st ep it things will get faster pace. This will be a gloomy type of show, Or in other word PEOPLE WILL DIE. And I like that type of show It a survival game type anime(I believe) so if you like that ...

    So much hype for this show
    THIS IS BASED OFF ONLY SEEING THE FIRST 2 EPISODES SO I WILL EDIT AS TIME GOES ON. So far its looking like its going to be a horror/suspense thriller anime. I was more intrigued by the second episode than I was the first so that gives me hope that it'll get even better as the series continues. The background music makes it even creepier so that's a plus. Some of the characters I don't particularly ...

    What makes this anime so intriguing?
    Although the beginning of this anime was very slow, you started to get into it as the episode went on.
    The plot that they have put so far is good... you know with the "New life" thing. As you get into the second episode you start to get an even bigger thrill. This is an anime that I would recommend even though it has only just began.
