Go out immediately and buy every album you can find by the Bauhaus, Sisters of Mercy and Switchblade Symphony. Listen to them non-stop for five days. Then look at the picture again.

THIS character design for an HORROR/SUSPENSE anime?

It's doubtful.

Well, Higurashi was doubtful at first as well but delivered in the end so I would say I have moderate expectations.

Tsutomu Mizushima hasn't directed Kobato., he's just participed as a series scriptwritter. It's Mitsuyuki Masuhara who's in charge of direction.

Why....? This is quite okay for an anime already....

Big difference usually between books/games and animation in terms of art.

...What is with this mentality that characters can't look good in horror shows ?


Have you not seen the last few movies we had?! Or even the classics?! They're always filled with beautiful people!

I heard from stuopidget the main characters from [Another] are all awesome (reliable), so this would be a real treat for me
I already cant stand Corpse Party already...it is too bad for my heart at some times. If this one turns out to be more horrific than Corpse Party, I think I will start becoming sleepless man...

Older animes always have darker atmosphere than this clean animation. Just compare the original HxH to the 2011 one.

Horror in anime doesn't work for me, I hope ''Another'' changes that, but it's highly unlikely.

Have you watched the PVs? I agree the manga has better character designs, but what's been released from this show does not look clean and bright.

I see...is it anime only or manga/novels and games as well?

What I saw was scary music and tense atmosphere, like something is going on and he didn't know. This will be more like a mystery than horror(of course, it's just speculation).

And it's my honest opinion: horror barely works on anime.

Well, I can't give you an honest opinion on other media, since I never read an horror manga/novel and only played a few horror games.

It's an psp game right? Is it really that scary?

Apart from mindless slashers, most horror stories are like that. Based upon the manga, without giving any spoilers, I'd say this will be as much horror as Ringu, Ju-on or Dark Water. Actually, the closest comparison I can think of is the original version of The Omen.
