I just finished Another, it kept me guessing until the very last episode, I really enjoyed it.

What does /a/ think about Another?

top fucking kek

>>100857949
We loved the pies.
>>
>>100857949
It was an entertaining show so I don't regret watching it.
>>
I liked the first half but thought that it tailed off a bit towards the end. It turned into a bit of a slasher in the final episodes and I was hoping for something a little more spooky.

Still a decent anime though.
>>
It started out interesting and atmospheric but ended up being dull splatter.

Yes, because it fucking cheated by turning into a comedy halfway through
Still pretty fun, though not what I was hoping for.
Prequel OVA is heart-attack-tier

>Misaki is a ghost!
>The dolls are supposed to represent the victims!
>Oh... they're all stabbing each other
>O-Okay then...

The first few episodes showed so much promise but it turned into Final Destination.

The first half was really fun to watch and made me watch the entire thing without pause, which isn't something I get to do often.

Second half was okay, but didn't compare to the first at all, but I do get that it's hard to let these kind of stories end in another way pun not intended
>>
>>100858384
It's not a bad anime, there was just a lot of wasted potential.

There really didn't need to be a fucking beach episode though.
>>
>>100858384
Another was a great horror comedy.
I'm not saying this ironically, or that it was unintentional (because it's clearly what they wanted), but it combined well slasher/gore aspects with comedy, without making you laugh at the source of evil but at its consequences.
>>
Alright, IRC... This thread was actually clever
>>
>>100858384
You didn't tell enough retards to lurk anon, now /a/ is dead.
>>
>>100858528
I thought the beach episode was a really good add. It kinda lowered my guard, making me glad that they finally had a day off from the bad stuff. But yeah, then shit went down again.
>>
>>100858633
There were so many better ways to do it though, it was just an awkward tonal shift.
>>
I felt sad when the nurse died.
>>
>>100858712
I agree that it could have been done better, but that's the case with the entire series.
>>
The beach episode was the best episode of the entire show.
>>
I was really impressed by the twist that Misaki wasn't a ghost/dead.

But yeah, by the end it just got silly.
>>
>>100858734
Those first 4-5 episodes were excellent, it felt like the writer(s) used all the best ideas too early on and couldn't figure out how to finish it.
>>
>>100858633
Maybe it's just because I've seen a lot of horror movies, but throughout that entire episode I was just waiting for the surprise death. It was almost a certainty.
>>
Watched up till ep.5 and stopped. Didn't enjoy it. Wasn't spooky or intriguing.
>>
first 2 episodes were great and last 2 episodes were FUCKING GOAT

the OVA was bad

rest was ok
>>
The story showed its hand way too soon, the first half should have been the entire plot in terms of pacing because they laid out all the rules early on then just gave us "who is dead?" to ponder for ages before they broke the rules with the ending.
>>
>>100859121
>OVA was bad

you're bad.
>>
>>100859048
I'm not a huge horror fan and I saw it coming coming too.
>>
>>100859121
>last 2 episodes were FUCKING GOAT
This is a clever ruse right guys?
>>
Are there any similar shows that don't go full retard at the end?
