| Plot Summary:Spring, 1998. Recently transferred to Yomiyama Kita Middle School, Kouichi Sakakibara (15) gets the feeling something isn’t quite right with his class, who all seem to be afraid of something. He finds himself attracted to the strange yet beautiful Mei Misaki, but his efforts to get closer only confound things further. Then there is a horrible accident… What on earth is happening in this place? “Another” is a new kind of schoolyard horror mystery from Yukito Ayatsuji, the standard-bearer of the “neo-orthodox mystery” movement. The original novel was called a “new masterpiece” by its author, and the long-awaited TV Anime version will debut in January of 2012, ahead of the release of the live-action film version in summer. The main staff for the TV Anime version includes Tsutomu Mizushima as director, Noizi Ito handling character design, and P.A. WORKS in charge of production. The staff and studio have a succession of hits to their names, and have formed a fantastic team to tackle this definitive piece in horror Anime.
