Well, anyway, I will now give my rating and then spend the rest of the time justifying my opinion.
|It's actually 1983, that explains the cassette.|
There are some details that I only found by looking up the game, such as the fact that this mystery story takes place in 1983. That makes a few things make a tad more sense, such as the students presenting a cassette tape.
|Local TV commercials, always irritating, always low budget.|
|Old people in groups, almost as creepy as children.|
It is not long before Hiroshi begins to notice that there is something odd going on in town. The old city does not like residents from the new city, classmates suddenly move away with out warning even if they were planning events far into the future.
It's all very strange in Joga.
|Masks and glowing eyes.|
There is also violin music in the series. I love violin music, it makes such a wonderful interlude.
|I really hate their uniforms. The white sailor suits? Terrible.|
I really enjoyed how much the series presented a complex issue and showed a possible, albeit insufficient, resolution. A resolution that was far more realistic than one would expect.
I think I've justified my rating, at least so far as I can. It was a good series, I watched it faster than I usually do. It starts a tad slow, the mystery builds up pretty high, and the revelations come at a steady pace. It is well done, and only a few tiny niggling questions remain.
A very worthwhile anime to watch, and it's short at only twelve episodes (including the omake episode). Rent, buy, or watch online. It is good.
