First Episode Review for: Another
Summary : A young lad transfers from Tokyo to a strange school in a much smaller town, the only problem is the class he is transferred to is very very haunted (shudder)
Animation : Blood and sand!! the animation is real life quality, by far and away the best I have seen in a long time
Plot Potential: Awesome, a real mystery horror I was glued to the screen the whole episode
Characters: Only a tiny bit stereotyped, no more that you would expect in a school based anime, both plot and setting give them variety and make them enjoyable to watch, partially the primary characters (shame the costumes are so generic it would be a good series to cosplay)
Music: Sounds like Ali Project are back with their trade mark opening music, also some great horror sound effects in just the right places
Reminds me of: Something like Vampire Princess Miyu
Overall: A really really enjoyable start to a series, its been a while since we have had a nice horror anime, I eagerly await episode two.
