Webmaster Review

68% Great

The story is a horror mystery with goose bumps and interesting up to the middle. However, the world view that is revealed in the second half is not good. It is difficult to evaluate personally. Also, the character design is not good. The heroine is not cute either.

There is a slight problem with drawing quality. The production is also cheap. The background is stable, and many of Shibuya's depictions are realistic. Both OP and ED songs are normal. Sound and BGM are also normal. The sequel animation "CHAOS; CHILD" is interesting, so let's watch this anime to watch the sequel.

2. Synopsis

Shibuya, Japan, 2008. Takumi Nishijou, a high school student at the Private Suimei Academy, one day hears about the ‘New Gen’ murders that have been occurring around the city. Although dismissing the subject because it doesn’t involve him, Takumi begins to experience strange mishaps around him, from a horrific picture he received while on his PC, to a mysterious Pink-Haired girl standing at a murder scene.

From there on Takumi struggles to cope with the events unfolding around him, and is soon unaware of what is real or a delusion. As his fate opens up before him, the perpetrator behind the ‘New Gen’ events attempts to find him, leading him into a world where nothing is as it seems.

3. Advanced can Learn Japanese with This Anime

Because this anime genre is horror suspense, the way all characters speak is very real and stable. However, the terms that appear are just difficult. Also, since the story itself is more difficult than the difficulty of the terminology, it is quite difficult to watch as learning Japanese. Even if you are an advanced Japanese student, you should listen to the Japanese while watching subtitles.
