Kouchi is a new student at Yomi North; he meets a reserved girl named Misaki Mei. However, none of the other students seem to acknowledge her existence. He finds himself drawn to the mysterious one-eyed girl and begins to talk to her. However, school takes a dark twist. When another classmate dies, things begin to heat up. Who will die next?
This series is a short, intense thriller! The story and characters are plotted so that things are challenging to figure out. The person that I initially thought was responsible for the deaths did not in fact turn out to be the killer. I actually guessed wrong several times, but the series kept me engaged enough to want to keep guessing. I liked that the directors built up an impressive and intense situation and then ended it spectacularly. The plot was superbly carried out!
Another thing that I liked was that heroine Misaki didn’t turn into some helpless damsel at the end; I also liked that she was smart and didn’t become sexualized or helpless at any point. She may not have been a popular individual, but she’s one of the better female anime characters I’ve seen in a while (exception being Balsa, from Morbito). If you’re into bloody who-done-its, this show is for you!
(*a note: the gore in this series is impressive. If you’re squeamish, don’t watch this. Also, this show is definitely not for kids.)
