So, I finally started watching Another on one of my off days from work. I've been a big fan of past dark and horror types of anime and Another absolutely makes me squirm with delight.

The scenery, the colors, the tone of the setting is superb and I love the build up in the series all the way to the end of episode 3.

I'll not say anything more as I don't want to put spoiler tags in here since it's a hassle but I am loving this series!

I've started reading the manga online and I have to say, it's amazing in both versions, though I feel the visuals in the anime are more effective than in the manga.

What I really want is a copy of the original novel, either translated or not. If not I will just have to dig out my old kanji dictionary and spend forever reading it slowly.

This is my favorite show of the season so far. The atmosphere is really well done. Parts of it also remind me of Rozen Maiden, given the Ali Project opening and all the imagery of dolls.

I love this anime. Definitely one of my favorites of the season. I usually don't get creeped out by dolls but for once I did with the random visuals.
And episode 3.... My jaw dropped D:

But I do wish they'd stop with all the "We have a secret!!!! Shhhh" cheesy lines and atmosphere DX Hopefully with the next episodes they'll stop that.

If it goes by the manga we'll be getting some answers fairly soon. Don't you worry. :3

I am waiting anxiously for the next episode!

Not normally a fan of horror, but this is in my top 5 of the season. This is my 2nd fave of the season, only losing 1st by a very thin margin to Inu x Boku.

Sadly won't be attending ACen 2012. So I'll be taking my cosplay up a notch for 2013.

I bought volume 4 and read it so i'm very sure of the ending. I took away the spoiler all together. I went back to re watch clips of the episodes that would have brought the same results as the manga. They're there! Can't wait to see this all play out... For anyone who truely NEEDS to know, PM me. Otherwise just enjoy the series!

This show has picked up and I'm very pleased.
But I am also sad because my bias has um.. departed this world. I won't say who it is so as to not spoil... But he was so cute and weak ;AA; /pulls him aside to pet/

I really want to get my hands on a copy of the original novel personally and read that.

Been making due with the anime and manga thus far and I love horror thrillers like this that have deep thought involved in solving them like a mystery novel...

Need more anime like this.

Just saw episode 9. GETTING SO PUMPED FOR THE END OF THIS SERIES!

This is going to make me dig out Ghost Hunt and some other horror-esque anime thrillers when it's done.

Really enjoying this anime. Plus, I can use it to scare/annoy a frend. She gets creeped out by it.

I started watching the series and completely caught up to the current cliffhanger within the past 24 hours or so. Really bad idea to do that at night in the dark. Nevertheless, I am waiting in excitement for more. This series is quite fantastic. ^_^

I just got back from Mitsuwa and I ordered the hardcover novel through Sanseido books. I'm looking forward to slowly ( oh so slowly ) reading the book which should arrive just as the series is about to end on tv.

The plot is a little silly but for a horror anime, the presentation is really good.
I've never actually felt like looking away from my screen from any other horror anime, haha.

I've been keeping track of this series too. Very Final Destination-like, haha. There's gonna be a live-action movie out in Japan in the summer. Doesn't look all that great.

I'm also interested to see what changes were made between the Novel and the Anime when I get the book. I hope the manga comes over too, that'd be fun to collect in english~ <3
