posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for the anime adaptation of Yukito Ayatsuji's Another horror novel has opened a preview page on Friday. The site confirmed that the anime will be a television project which will premiere next year. It also revealed that Noizi Ito (Haruhi Suzumiya, Shakugan no Shana) is responsibe for the original character designs. The 2009 novel centers around a school class that has a curse, and the string of unavoidable deaths that befall the boys and girls in that class.
26 years ago, in a third-year classroom of a middle school, there was a student named Misaki. As an honors student who was also good at sports, the charming girl was popular with her classmates. When she suddenly died, her classmates decided to carry on as if she was still alive until graduation. Then, in the spring of 1998, a boy named Kōichi Sakakibara transfers to that classroom, and he grows suspicious of the fearful atmosphere in that classroom. In particular, there is a beautiful, aloof girl named Misaki Mei who wears an eyepatch and is always alone drawing pictures.
