Another by Sentai Filmworks and Seraphim Digital, story by Yukito Ayatsuji, art by Noizi Ito, 2012 – When Kōichi Sasakibara transfers to his new school, he can sense something frightening in the atmosphere of his new class, a secret none of them will talk about. At the center is the beautiful girl Mei Misaki. Kōichi is immediately drawn to her mysterious aura, but then he begins to realize that no one else in the class is aware of her presence.
3 Stars – It’s so hauntingly alluring!
Not the high school class I would want to be part of, our story begins with a boy entering his school-year a little later than his classmates, and finding himself making mistakes from the start, due to strange occurrences and odd individuals he tries to befriend.
Beautiful mixtures of CGI and traditional artistic mediums add to the alluring, well-paced mystery that unfolds. This is one that will keep you on the edge of your seat as you watch. Squirm and cover your eyes if you must, as the graphically macabre scenes play out, but be sure you peek through your fingers so you don’t miss out on any clues along the way!
