Webmaster Review

93% Outstanding

In the story of trusting friends and confronting fate many times. It is a super masterpiece animation that cannot be touched. Characters are also cute in design, and the production of personality is also improved.

There is only “Kai” in the world view and it is very well done. Since it becomes spoiler, I cannot explain any more. Anyway, story development is insanely interesting. The drawing has become very good, and the camera work is as high as the previous work. The background has also improved.

The theme song is also very good, and the ED song is also good. The sound is also very good like the previous work, and the serious feeling enhances the atmosphere. A work of excellent personality. OP is very good and ED is good.

A masterpiece of historical masterpieces. You only have two choices to see this anime or die. Watch it anyway!

2. Synopsis

In the small village of Hinamizawa, Rika Furude and her friends live together in relative harmony. Beneath this mask of peace, however, lies a hidden darkness, one that Rika understands all too well. In this eternal summer, she has been witness to unspeakable horrors. Every time the clock resets, Rika must try to find the villain behind these senseless deaths before tragedy strikes again. However, trying to decipher a mystery when only half the clues are present proves time and again to be disastrous, and each time she believes that things will change, she inevitably fails. As the annual festival approaches, Rika begins her descent from hope to despair in her struggle to break the chains of fate entangling them all.

3. Proficiency can Learn Japanese with This Anime

Terms that are more difficult than the previous work frequently appear. However, it is a pity that I cannot explain it. Because it becomes a spoiler. Therefore, I cannot explain the Japanese difficulty of this anime. It’s a shame. However, following the previous work, this anime is a historical masterpiece. Forget about learning Japanese and enjoy this anime with subtitles. It will greatly contribute to your life. I guarantee.
