MVM has announced that it will release the television anime adaptation of Yukito Ayatsuji's Another horror novel later in 2013. No date was given for the release, but it will be on both Blu-ray and DVD. MVM confirmed it would be releasing the twelve television episodes, as well as the 'Episode 0' OAV episode, and that the release would include both the dubbed and subtitled versions.
The 2009 novel concerns a school class that has a curse, and the string of deaths that befall the boys and girls in that class. From MVM's page: "Kōichi Sakakibara, a transfer student moves to Yomiyama Middle School... It's not long before students start to meet grisly and unexpected ends. Can Kōichi and the his mysterious classmate Mei unravel the a string of events that relate to the death of a student in 1972? There are no guarantees that anyone will make it out alive..".
