Another mixed kind of episode with the first story about the house connected to other worlds having an interesting concept but then not really building on that concept in the limited time it had, and then another short story about Souichi. I’m going to be honest and say that while I didn’t mind the first episode and story with Souichi, this story was decidedly pointless and not in the least bit interesting.
Back to the first story though, there was some genuinely good atmosphere about the creepy house and the classmates showing up all weird and twisted. The scene in the classroom was probably the weak link with the most poorly animated fist fight in history (okay, exaggeration but I’m better it will be the worst fight for the year).
All and all, we could have scrapped the second story and just had more of this one and overall it would have been a far more satisfying viewing experience.
Thanks for reading.
