I'm not really a hard core Anime person but I didn't mind this one. I found myself really enjoying the first two story arch's of the show but after that I started to loose interest. I don't think the plot is that interesting to carry into a bunch of differet story lines. Great idea to do so and I would watch the first few episodes again for sure.

"I made it through all 50 episodes of this show and never once knew what the hell was going on. I still enjoyed it, it has a certain horrifying psychotic charm, however I struggled to understand the story line at all. _________________________________________ Genre: Mystery, psychological horror, supernatural Episodes: 50 My overall rating - 6/10 Really, really weird Completed - 1/03/15 Dubbed "

"Otra gilipollez de serie de(pseudo)horror sin sentido para pubertos que se creen sádicos por ver ketchup en caricaturas japonesas. Personajes pésimamente escritos y patológicamente ridículos, gore excesivo porque si y tanto la animación como el diseño de personajes están de la verga."
