I was wondering why this anime about a murder mystery in a secluded town didn’t have a dam. Well, here we go. I should have known not to be impatient.
Another, despite how awful the beginning was, actually had a pretty solid ending. Well, the deaths continued to be hilariously dumb. But if you just treat all the deaths as jokes attempting to get a chuckle out of you it works pretty well. My favorite this episode was the four people running down the stairs who had a chandelier fall on their heads.
Words of Wisdom
After approaching a burning mansion and knocking out a blood-splattered woman chasing two boys with a knife out a window, this has to be the best line of the show:
And for a close second:
Truer words of wisdom were never spoken.
For another moment of blazing stupidity, we have Kouichi stop and take out his cellphone to make a call in the middle of a burning building that’s collapsing around him.
Awesome fight sequence! Yes! It’s too bad Izumi couldn’t be more patient and have her showdown with the actual Another. Warning: Izumi picdump ahead (I really had to restrain myself this week)!
Nooo, Izumi!!! How can you stab her after looking into those eyes?!!
Don’t do it!!!!
Uh oh, a lightning strike. Glass? Psssh, it’s already well established that falling glass is the only item on the face of the earth that can’t kill people.
WHAT?!! A shocking twist! Who could have guessed that she would die from falling glass?! IZUMIIIIIIIII!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
We will always remember you!
Wait? Reiko and the teacher were the same person? I completely forgot this (or was it supposed to be a twist…?).
Kouichi earns some respect here for doing the dirty deed himself.
Nothing’s really resolved though. It looks like the exact same thing will happen again next year. Oh well, someone else’s problem. Perhaps a sequel? But now that they killed off Izumi, I’m not particularly interested.
