Horror films or web series are known to be threatening in some way, shape, or form. But what if you come across a series having no actual monster/ghost, but you still feel like to are in a cold sweat? Let us acquaint you with this blood-curdling anime – ANOTHER.
Another is a 2012 Japanese horror anime television series produced by P.A.Works. It is directed by Tsutomu Mizushima that aired twelve episodes from January 10 to March 27, 2012. Based on the 2009 novel of the same name by Yukito Ayatsuji, the series was set in 1998. It focuses on a boy named Kōichi Sakakibara who, upon transferring into Yomiyama Middle School and meeting the curious Mei Misaki, finds himself in a mystery revolving around students and people related to his class facing gruesome and senseless deaths.
Another is a very underrated anime. The story probably won’t make you jump off your seat obviously, but with all the gruesome events happening, even you, the watcher, won’t ever leave the premise of the story unscathed! Let’s know the plot of it in a nutshell.
The story revolves around Yomiyama North Middle School’s cursed class 3-3. In 1972, a trendy honor student named Misaki died partway through the school year. The rest of the students, devastated by the unexpected loss, decided to carry on as if their classmates were still alive. They were going so far as to keep the desk in place and bring it to the graduation ceremony. Yet their classmate, already dead and buried, was unexpectedly validated by the appearance of his ghost in their class photo.
Since then, Class 3 has been visited by “Another.” The identity of the “Another” is unknown to the students but is who died in the past disasters and had come back from the dead to join Class 3. The curse wipes the death from their memory, making anyone a potential ghost. The presence of the spirit leads the members of the class to be “close to death,” making it so any death that could happen most likely will ( Yeah, that’s it, I’m not going to tell the entire story).
We might not find the storyline much alluring but trust me, the way they’ve picturized everything will give you the vibe of creepiness. Plot twists are layered beautifully well, and the only reaction you’re left with is WOAH! WHAT DID HAPPEN? Once you’re into it, there’s no going back.
