2013/05/04 Very Bad(-2 pnt) [Edit/Delete/Suggest to delete/Show only this review or post sympathy comment/]

I know I'm in the minority on this one on both sides of the Pacific, but I found the characters to be mostly flat and unengaging, and the entire plot and storywriting to be alternately predictable and ludicrous. I should not be able to call out when, where, and how each character is going to die ahead of time, but unfortunately, I had a streak of five straight correct guesses at one point thanks to the hamhanded foreshadowing of this series. Equally unfortunately, this turned much of Another away from being suspenseful and more into being sort of a comedy of errors, where these high schoolers (and their attendant adults) honestly all felt too stupid to live; it didn't help that many of the character deaths were from the same overly complicated Rube Goldberg Machine school of Horror Movie Demise as the Final Destination series: a storytelling trope I really wish had never been unleashed upon this planet.

Combined with my utter distaste of the idea of "injury as fetish" (why are eyepatches a "thing" at all?) and a terrible, laughable ending that sort of borrows the worst possible pages from Battle Royale that you can think of, as well as a twist ending that I'd actually figured out within the first hour of runtime, and we have one of my least favorite suspense-horror series that I've ever completed, complete with my least favorite song from a band I normally enjoy (ALI Project).

Oh well: at least I got a few laughs out of it?

I will say one thing in its favor: I loved the design work and setting. There you go.
