Another has got to be the darkest anime I’ve ever watched, every single episode is filled with blood, death and gore. But aside from all that, it is quite an interesting anime with a good plot line. In my opinion, I don’t really think horror and anime mix, but this one surprisingly went well together.
The story is about a class who are allegedly cursed. Starting in April, Each month, one person in their class dies up until Graduation. This curse only happens when an extra student comes to class, when an extra student joins the class, the curse occurs, leaving people directly or indirectly connected to the class, dead.
The curse started in 1972 when a popular student named Misaki died. The entire class loved Misaki and They didn’t want to accept her death. So they didn’t. The students of Class 3 pretended that Misaki was still alive. They even saved a seat for Misaki at graduation. But when they took their class photo the class was shocked to see Misaki standing with the class smiling like everyone else. The class didn’t realize that they welcomed death into their class room.
The anime is focused around a boy named Koichi Sakakibara who joins the class as the Extra person during the middle of the school year. He is shocked by the curse and decides to solve the mystery with a classmate of his. When I watched this anime, I developed a fear of Umbrella’s because of one scene. it was very intense gore.
As they were solving the mystery, many people continued to die, I couldn’t count but in the span of 5 months, I think around 10-15 people died. I don’t want to name the deaths, cause thats just cruel but don’t watch this anime if you like happy ones, cause this is definitely not for light hearted people.
