If you enjoyed the teasers, why don’t you tell us in the Discussion thread or the Teaser Feedback thread and give the project a vote. At first when I got a review copy of this, I thought it was he first volume of the manga, and after having watched and enjoyed the anime, I was thrilled.

At least, not the way conventional ghost work.

The novel is a whopping pages and I am not a professional translator, so I’ll translate random passages possibly entire chapters little by little. Believing this was a book based on a manga, it felt very much like descriptions were glossed over in favour of a lot of text, mostly in the form of Sakakibara’s tedious thoughts.

Best of all, unlike too many horror novels, the climax pays off perfectly! This Project has been declared as Abandoned! When Misaki suddenly died, everyone in the class decided to carry on as if Misaki was still alive until graduation. I was confused by this at first, too.


I do want to say that the description is somewhat misleading. Even Sakakibara wonders how many of the deaths are actually just coincidences. Yet the story did find its feet in volume too and became very exciting. And this wasn’t just a brief passing mention.


Although she started off seeming like a very weak character — always speaking in a Gothic and flowery way which left you wondering if she was a ghost — her presence grew a lot stronger as the story progressed.

Ok, the start is frustrating.

There are elements of culture and events that the non-Japanese person or anime fan will miss unless they spend a bit of time googling, but I didn’t find this enough of an issue to deter me.

Retrieved July 30, There is some gore as several deaths are tdanslation. When he’s finally able to start school, Koichi soon notices that his classmates and teachers are behaving strangely, but he isn’t able to pinpoint what’s going on. This makes sense because most of the characters, even main ones, tend to die off fairly quickly, and with such a large cast to murder, you kind of expect it. There is so much open for interpretation and so many aspects that are left unexplained.


If you like creepy Japaneses high school stories with characters that are pretty messed up and a main character is so naive at times you wonder how they survive the rest of the book?

If someone thought they were going to both read the book and watch the anime, I’d tell them they should probably start with the book. Curses are nonsense, they say. Contents [ show ]. Still, really good novel. As the true nature of the Curse is finally revealed, Sakakibara is able to invest more time into trying to find a way to break it before anyone he cares about can meet and unpleasant end.

My first encounter with Another was when the anime aired a few years ago. Everyone acts as though they are afraid of something but no one will tell him exactly what it is.
