It’s October and that means it’s time to get into the spirit of the season, and obviously nothing gets you into the Halloween mood better than horror. Unfortunately when it comes to most live-action horror films, there’s only so much that can be done and shown, but thankfully of all things, Anime can cross the line with story, gore, and intriguing storytelling. So for every day this month, I’ll be featuring a unique Anime that fits the horror genre that you can most likely find on any streaming service. Let’s head to school with Another.
Another (2012) is a horror mystery that takes us to a junior high class where students will die in Final Destination ways because of a “calamity curse” that affects this class only because of all things…one of the students in the class that year is an “extra” and unbeknownst to that student as well as their classmates…they’re a ghost.
Based off a 2009 novel of the same name that was turned into a manga, this 12 episode series will have you hooked right from the start as it becomes clear that something is very wrong and will have you guessing up till the very end who the “extra” in the classroom really is.
