Genre: Horror, Mystery
In the year 1972, in Yomiyama North Middle School’s class 3-3, a popular girl named Misaki suddenly died during school days. Shocked by her death, the students and teachers behaved like she was still alive, believing to see her in the seat where she attended class. In 1998, Kouichi Sakakibara, a 15 year old student, transferred in the school in class 3-3, where the atmosphere was really strange. She meets a young girl with a mysterious eye patch over her left eye, Mei Misaki, who seemed to be ignored by the students and teachers, acting like she wasn’t even there.
A bit after Kouichi arrival, the class is caught up be an odd prodigy, which students, teachers and their relatives died in horrific and mysterious way. Kouichi and Misaki then found out that these deaths are related to the “Misaki of 1972”. The two friends have to solve the mystery for the sake of everyone.
Kouichi Sakakibara: The main protagonist of the series. He was hospitalized because he had pneumothorax. He lives with his grand-parents and his aunt Reiko, because his father is doing a research in India. He becomes friend with Mei, despite she told him to stay away from her, and with his classmates he wants to discover the truth of the curse of the 3-3 class.
Mei Misaki: A very strange and unusual girl in Kouichi class. She has an eyepatch on her left eye, which in reality (!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!) is a doll’s eye. With this eye, she claims to see the color of death, to find out if a person is dead or is supposed to be dead. She is at first completely ignored by her classmates, and sits by an old desk.
A very creepy anime (well obviously, it’s a horror story -.-). The soundtrack is hell of scary, Mei creeps us out, and the plot is a cliché of an actual horror story, but it’s good! The animation was the best part of it; some things were so detailed, that we were impressed. The only problem, was the opening; it didn’t correspond with the show… If you like gore, creepiness and… dolls, well, go check it out!
