TRAILER

I made a post about how I watched the wrong show, so my first task this morning was to get up and binge this. And Iโ€™m super glad I did, to be honest, it had been a very long time since I had watched this and I was planning to review it next week, and Erased this week. I guess this is a reminder to double-check the title before finalizing the Playlist lol

Anyways if youโ€™ve read any review for Another before, youโ€™ve probably read this line. Another is anime horror at its peak. And I tend to agree. Another has a lot to unpack in terms of making a high-quality mystery and ghost hunt.ย  The plot may be simple, (A new student transfers into a school with a checkered past and finds himself unraveling the events of 26 years ago while mysterious events happen around him.)ย  but the content is anything but.

Based on the story by Yukito Ayatsuji, and directed by Tsutomu Mizushima really takes the school ghost story to the next level. The animation and sound design are great, even the dubbed voice actors were great (which is a bit of a surprise since itโ€™s going on 11 years old now) with great performances from Greg Ayres, and Monica Rial.

But the artistry isnโ€™t what takes the cake. The writing of Ayatsuji certainly shines through in his attention to detail and ability to constantly make you know whatโ€™s going on.

This certainly stands out exceptionally among many other horror anime.

There are plenty of anime that are gory, and have a good story but none that take such care making you question everything you think you know. Most have some mysterious sub-plot while all sorts of mayhem are going on, but the mystery isnโ€™t usually the focus. (Ie; Future Diary)

This is one that if you havenโ€™t seen and are a fan of any of the genres is an absolutely must-watch. Unfortunately not recommended for anyone 13> due to graphic violence.ย
