Both share a creepy, mysterious atmosphere that makes you feel slightly uncomfortable by creating tension and suspense.
In Another and Dansai Bunri no Kuraimu Ejji, both main, male leads notice a girl who is excluded from those around her. Both are interested in finding out why and so they seek out the girl more, but others are being opposed to this happening. Both series are dark, but also enjoyable to people who don't usually watch psychological and dark animations. You will notice more similarities as the main plot and the characters unfold. The main, male characters decide that they will be there for the girl, even if it gets themselves hurt in the process. And from this, new events unfold no one would have expected.

After finishing it...well it wasn't bad...I guess.


It's a bit dragging. Problem is that the first few eps just take too much time to get into the story, and I fear that there won't be enough episodes or time to fully extend the potential of this story. But lets see...

First half was deliberately paced, nice and sublime like a French movie but then it lost track.

The ending of episode 3!!! totally didn't expect it!

The general idea was interesting, but the last two episodes were kind of dumb (?). Don't know how does it relate to novel tho, but definitely didn't like it.
The way they were killing each other reminded me of Battle Royale :P

It was a good one, up to the point Random chan mentions in the spoiler, I totally agree. It was too much for me, but other than that, the story was quite interesting.

nah, I didn't particularly like it. I guess it was neat in a way and adapted the novel in a nice way, but i find the characters emotionless and therefore very hard to relate to
At the end, when they killed each other, I just saw figures trying to stab each other and a lot of blood. Suspense was rather off because of this. I had no reason to be worried about characters I don't particularly care for :P
