  • Yes this is definitely good
    This might sound stupid but I'm glad to get a show that takes itself seriously and doesn't interrupt the emotional moments of its own characters. It doesn't over exaggerate them either. The dialogue and way the characters act all seem accurate for the most part. The strengths of the characters are balanced, except the older kids being smarter... but that makes sense.
    Instead of the typical ...

  • Gripping plotline kept me hooked.
    Absolutely loved this one. I love the psychological element behind it in Episode 1 and what spurs the kids on. They're great characters mature beyond their age, yet still flawed. Great animation and I love the opening theme as well.

    Anime paces itself quite well and was written with a wonderful beginning, middle, and conclusion. I cannot wait for Season 2!

    Tense as Hell, This Anime Earns Its Emotional Drama
    When I first watched the first episode, I was worried. It gave a lot of clunky exposition right off the bat to the point that it bothered me. But because of the shining reviews I kept watching. Quickly I got rapt up in the mind games, the tense atmosphere, the feeling of dread, and the determination of these kids. If you loved Death Note, a lot of the greatest qualities of that anime are to be ...

  • BEST ANIME EVER!!!!!
    This is one of THE BEST anime series out there and though it is dark... I LOVE IT! Please let there be a season 2! It was kinda long until ya know the end. It had so many episodes of kinda nothing. But in the end it was one of the best i've seen! Good plot, good plot twists, and it wasn't confusing! I HOPE THERE WILL BE A SEASON 2!!

  • Incredible thriller with stunning cinematography
    I rarely see an anime that uses camera work as effectively as this show does. The whole show is shot like a horror movie, with some really interesting angles that seem to spy on the main characters as they discuss their plan. **SPOILER ALERT** In ep. 12, towards the end, there's a really great wide angle shot of the scene where Mama confronts Emma and the kids when they make their escape over the ...

  • Conceptually dark and terrifying, surprisingly still full of sweetness and hope
    This anime plays the spectrum of emotions, and it does it really well in my opinion. It's thrilling and suspenseful in its concept and direction, with the way the camera moves, the music, the timing of each shot--(disclaimer I'm no film director or expert myself, but I like to think I can recognize quality), it gives plenty of payoff for buildup, it's full of fun (and dreadful) twists and turns ...

  • Purely Amazing!!!!!!
    This show had such great storytelling aspects to it and that fact that the horrific situation was hidden from the audience at first made it all the greater. Each character had their own flaws and personalities and you could see what each character was dealing with. I highly recommend this series to anyone who is on the edge about watching it!

  • One Of The Best Animes Of 2019!
    I have to admit when I first started watching the series, I was not expecting it to take a dark turn so quickly and immediately by the end of episode one I was genuinely intrigued and couldn't wait for the second episode to air (It was torture watching each episode by weekly). And with each episode, the characters grew on me more. I also really enjoyed the female lead in this. Emma like most anime ...
