Product Description

Mei Misaki was cute, athletic and one of the most popular girls in her school. Why should a little thing like death change that? Now, twenty-three years after Mei's mysterious demise, a new transfer student discovers that not only is his school's student body one corpse short of a full roster, but that some secrets never leave high school. And what's more, all of this may somehow be tied to his own family past. What is the secret and how does it all connect? And even if Kouichi does figure it out, will that knowledge help save him? As the school bells toll a deadly dirge and students begin to die, things that were never properly buried come back to haunt the high school of the damned in ANOTHER!

Amazon.com

The supernatural horror tale Another (2012) is adapted from a novel by Yukito Ayatsuji and illustrated by Noizi Ito. While his professor-father works in India, Kouichi Sasakibara is sent to Yamiyama Junior High, the school his late mother attended. But he's put into Class 3, the "cursed class." Twenty-six years ago, a popular student named Mei Misaki died during the school year, but everyone in Class 3 pretended she was still there and could graduate with her friends. Since then, the class has been haunted by the presence of one extra person who causes the death of other students, usually in bizarre accidents. As they see their classmates die, Kouichi and his traumatized friends feel increasingly helpless: Who will be next? How can they protect themselves? Who is the extra person, "the dead who must be sent back to death"? And who is the mysterious girl with the eye patch--another Mei Misaki, whom everyone else in the class ignores? Director Tsutomo Mizushima skillfully keeps the viewer slightly off-balance with real and false clues and eerie imagery, especially the decaying dolls in the museum where Kouichi and Mei meet. Like Shiki and When They Cry, Another feels genuinely creepy because of what the filmmakers don't show. The violence begins slowly, which gives the terrible climax a punch Hellsing and similar nonstop gore fests can't match. Another is not a series to watch alone late at night, but it's a disturbingly effective one.

Kōichi Sasakibara has recently transferred to a new school. His class has a strange atmosphere, and it gets even stranger after he meets a pretty girl named Mei Misaki, whose existence none of his classmates will acknowledge. Then he learns of a horrifying story that started 26 years ago, when a popular student named Misaki died...

Another is one of those horror stories that is horrific, but not really scary. The deaths were surprisingly graphic, but other then that it was fairly mild. The atmosphere is well done, the story fast paced, and the characters engaging enough to propel the story. I really enjoyed watching this series, as it is exactly the kind of horror show I enjoy. Creepy, but you'll have no trouble sleeping at night. If you enjoy shows like Shiki, Umineko, and When They Cry (Higurashi), then you should give Another a try.

Another is based on the novel by Yukito Ayatsuji. It is 12 episodes long and aired January through March of 2012. It is available streaming on Crunchyroll, if you want to give it a try before purchasing.
The DVD set includes clean opening and endings as well as a special on the series (which I haven't seen yet). Audio is available in both Japanese and English, but I've only seen it in Japanese so far, so can't remark on the English dub. The Japanese was good though.

Alright, there are numerous anime fanboys (and girls) who will give any animated show 5 stars. I am not so clumsy. I like some terrible shows and I hate some really well-done shows. I recognize the difference between enjoyment and quality. This is both highly enjoyable (if you like suspense-horror stories) and high quality.

Another is a great anime. The music is pretty good, if not super memorable. The characters are really well developed for such a short series.

The animation style really tickles me. While the drawing of the characters is pretty standard, the details of the settings are some of the best I've seen in any animation. The choices of lighting and shadow, moss on cobblestones, rust on wrought-iron fences, and other little details add to the atmosphere of the show so well. There was a lot of attention to detail put into this show.

And the story is great. I believe that art exists to convey emotion - even if that emotion is negative. A horror movie that succeeds in scaring the audience is a good piece of art. I am a grown man who does not scare easily and this show - even though it was animated - managed to creep me out slightly when watching alone late at night. That might not sound like much, but it is very, very rare for me so I found it impressive. The twists and turns kept me guessing - and then reevaluating my guesses.

Recommended.

Intro:
This is not a happy fairy-tale. Let's begin with that, Another is a dark anime. It has a cool aesthetic, soundtrack, and avoids many of the tropes that modern anime series' have fallen into. This series contains 12 episodes and the OVA.

Animation: 4.5/5
This is a gorgeous anime, the characters are all animated fluidly and the deaths are gruesome and realistic. The eye-catches in between scenes is pretty creepy (porcelain dolls are not my friends). The entire city is rusty, dark, and generally unclean which helps add to the atmosphere. Even the rails on top of the hospital are rusty and somehow frightening. Only complaint here is the occasional CG use, which anime fans should be accustomed to at this point.

Sound: 5/5
I watched both the Japanese and English versions and I am happy to report that they are both fantastic. Neither one of them suffers from annoying/whiny voice acting and this is actually some of the best work the English VA's have done. The music is appropriately creepy and unsettling, and the opening theme is very catchy.

Story: 5/5
The best way I can describe the story without too many spoilers is Final Destination meets Battlestar Galactica (any BG fan will understand it's not the Sci-fi portion I'm referencing). It is a mystery that kept me guessing right up until the very end, and I am usually pretty good at guessing where plots will go. The twists and turns were all alluded to throughout the series, so there are no bogus "we made a twist just because we could" moments that many mystery stories like to do.

Overall 5/5
If you are a fan of anime, and/or a fan of horror in general, you owe it to yourself to give this anime a go. Well worth the price, in my opinion.

Another is a very odd series. While the plot reads like an anime version of Final Destination, the final product is very addictive, yet fairly flawed series.

Instead of recapping the plot, which is perfectly summarized on this page already, lets focus on what the show does right. The story, while confusing at times, is instantly entertaining. The perfectly crafted mood and tone draw the viewer in, and then constant, hovering doom keep the show moving along. Very rarely does the story play it safe, with pretty much all characters at risk of falling victim to class 3-3's curse. The art enhances the mood, building a word drenched in shadows, cool colors and a hazy, almost sunset glow that settles over everything. The pace, at least in the earlier episodes, is deliberate. It takes time to establish mood and character.

Character is another area where the show stands out. While the cast is VERY large, and focus can be pulled all over the place, the characters are very enjoyable to watch. Note I didn't say "watch die". These kids are good group of normal teenagers who are stuck in a horrific situation. You feel bad for them, and you don't really want to see them die, but die they do. This show is brutal in dispatching it's cast. The death scenes are shocking and well animated.

While the show does a lot right, it also has some pretty obvious flaws. First and foremost is the occasional CGI employed. In some scenes it is hardly an issue, but in others it looks horrid. The worst is a scene set at the beach, with the ocean animated with CGI. It looks like something from an original Playstation game, and completely pulls the viewer out of the scene.
