Once again we get two creepy stories with neither one really pushing into actually being scary so much as strange and a little unsettling. What horror I did find in the second story came from my own dislike of puppets and marionettes which was firmly embedded when I was a child. And, just saying, but that puppet was so creepy looking I can’t imagine anyone actually taking it with them when they ran away.
The first story this week was kind of nothing. Creepy cursed object story but as usual this anime doesn’t take the time to build up the suspense of atmosphere and merely walks us through the events. While they are dark and the end is kind of tragic, it never really gives us a chance to feel for any of the characters leaving the end of that first story fairly empty.
And so this series continues to be watchable but not really all that good.
Thanks for reading.
