Winter 2012 is admittedly a rather dull season. One of the few series that stands out is the brand new mystery/horror anime called "Another". It is based on an award-winning novel of the same name by Yukito Ayatsuji.

http://geekrevolt.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/HorribleSubs_Another_-_01_720p_Jan-9-2012-2.03.39-PM.jpg

The story is set in the little town of Yomiyama, 1998. The plot follows the 15-year-old protagonist, Kouichi Sakakibara, who transfers to Yomiyama Middle School class 3-3. It is rumoured that in 1972, a popular boy studying in class 3-3 called Misaki died. All his classmates and teachers were distraught by his death and one day, a student pointed at his desk and proclaimed that Misaki didn't die, that he was right there. Everyone decided to go along with it and pretended that Misaki was indeed alive. On the day of graduation, they even saved a space for him when they took the graduation photo. The spooky thing was that, when the photo came out, Misaki was there...

Then starting from the next year, a strange and horrifying phenomenon began. Students of class 3-3 would discover that there was an extra student in the class. But no matter how they tried, they would not be able to find out who this extra student was. Then every month, a number of people related to that class would die under strange circumstances... And at the end of the year, they would realise the extra student was a victim of this phenomenon in the previous year.

When Kouichi arrives in town, he goes to hospital due to pneumothorax (punctured left lung). There, he meets a strange eye-patched girl called Mei Misaki, who he discovers is his classmate. But when he finally attends school, he realises somehow everyone else in class don't seem to notice her existence. Then people start dying...

It's airing now^^ I like Another, it's a good horror anime to watch :)

Will I ever be able to escape this eternal living Hell, this endless cycle of being used, hurt and betrayed…? After all others had hated and abandoned me, he was the first to ever view me with only love and kindness in his eyes... He sees me for what I truly am... I love and will never abandon him... Our hearts will shine together... And break through the darkness and discord that is Eternity...

As how I said in my W.L. Opinion:
in the beginning,i though that this anime is SO not worth to be watched (you can call it fake or something as stagy!)
i just forced my self to watch it for the first 5 eps..but after ep 5(or 6 don remember)when things started "finally" getting interesting
well..after that i couldn't stop watching it waiting for the ending.
for characters: i didn't like most of them(but liked Naoya Teshigawara-he's my fav type :3)
but there's just one thing i'm wondering about(actually; more then one though)--Big Spoiler coming--:
..why,again; WHY misaki waited till the end to kill or announce that Reiko(Sakakibara's aunt)is the dead one even though she saw her getting killed before,why did misaki wait till lots of student die..couldn't she kill her since the beginning!?.
and i damn hate those bloody-death scenes
i mean,in this anime they show a really awful ways to die(i hope we would only rest in PEACE ;3)
Oh..one more thing....is it only me or this anime has a couple similarities in art with Code Geass
after all the both animes has an awesome art out there,this is for sure.

She didn't kill Reiko or told people Reiko was the 'another' because she didn't know killing her would stop the phenomenon. She only knew that after listening to the audio tape.

What was up with the random flashes to the dolls? That's the only part that was confusing/disconcerting to me... though some of the death scenes were pretty brutal.

I think the doll flashes merely function as tension builders and as a sort of nod to the death of Mei's twin sister (as in reminding us about the first ep in which Mei took a doll to her in the hospital morgue). And yeah. The death by umbrella is particularly memorable.
