We are both middle-aged professionals with good imaginations and open minds, who love both fiction and non-fiction, as well as good scifi. If you give this series a chance and pay close attention you will be well rewarded with a smart, serious story underneath the silly songs and cosmetic fluff that graces most anime nowadays. Highly recommended!
Welcome to the life of four teenagers who are given a new chance at life but things are not as what you may expect.
In October 2006, GONZO's "RED GARDEN" appeared on TV Asahi. The show ended at 22 episodes in March 2007 and now the teen/horror drama will be released in the US in September.
"RED GARDEN" is an anime that takes place in New York and revolves around four teenagers:
Kate Ashley - A member of GRACE, the top students who police the school for students who are late to class and to ensure that all is well at their high school but trying to cope with life after the death of her good friend Lise.
Rachel Benning - The popular girl in school, wearing the most expensive clothes and always partying with her friends.
Claire Forrest - Independent and outspoken. Not a student but works (or tries) to make ends meet.
Rose Sheedy - A shy girl who takes care of her siblings while her mother is hospitalized.
The four girls have nothing to do with each other but each share a common friend named Lise Meyer who has been murdered. To make matters worse, other young girls from their high school are being murdered. Also, for the four, they can't seem to remember what happened the night of Lise's murder.
One night, the four are brought together and wait until a mysterious man and woman appears to them and tells them that they all were murdered and have been given a second chance at life. But to stay alive, they will need to kill the beasts who murder at night.
They have no choice but to fight and win. Or else they die.Read more ›
The anime is so great I have already watched volume 2 and plan to get them all. This is one anime I don't wish to miss and I don't think it will get boring.
