Webmaster Review

93% Outstanding

The original is sometimes referred to as a novel, and the story is superb with the highest quality. Not only the character of the character but also the personality, inner face setting, and behavior are highly calculated. The view of the world that makes the most of horror with "Japan" Germany can be highly appreciated.

The stability of the drawing and the 3D effects are beautiful everywhere, and the production of the death scene gives viewers a tremendous fear. In particular, the background that complements the worldview is beautiful and creepy, and must-see. The theme song matches the work very much and is a fearful OP. Sound and BGM is an eerie and scary production with cold music.

It is a work of great work so that it can be said that there is no horror more than this work in Japanese anime.

2. Synopsis

In 1972, a popular student in Yomiyama North Middle School’s class 3-3 named Misaki passed away during the school year. Since then, the town of Yomiyama has been shrouded by a fearful atmosphere, from the dark secrets hidden deep within.

Twenty-six years later, 15-year-old Kouichi Sakakibara transfers into class 3-3 of Yomiyama North and soon after discovers that a strange, gloomy mood seems to hang over all the students. He also finds himself drawn to the mysterious, eyepatch-wearing student Mei Misaki; however, the rest of the class and the teachers seem to treat her like she doesn’t exist. Paying no heed to warnings from everyone including Mei herself, Kouichi begins to get closer not only to her, but also to the truth behind the gruesome phenomenon plaguing class 3-3 of Yomiyama North.

Another follows Kouichi, Mei, and their classmates as they are pulled into the enigma surrounding a series of inevitable, tragic events—but unraveling the horror of Yomiyama may just cost them the ultimate price.
