There is little information to go off of thus far – although the official site states it to be a “definitive animated horror” one apparently so spectacular “the world has highly awaited the release from Kadokawa”. It also goes on to claim the series is so sickeningly scary, it has effortlessly left everyone “shivering around the world” in its previous horror novel renditions.
The artist responsible for the character designs for this newly announced anime of 2012 is the lovely female behind the illustrations of Shakugan no Shana and Haruhi, Noizi Ito. The remaining staff has yet to be announced – the same goes for the seiyuu cast.
The story roughly follows the life of a highschool student, a concept so baffling and unheard of, it doesn’t do well in generating any interest on the main character front. Continuing, the class of the main character is seemingly hiding a secret from him during the spring season setting based in 1998.
Koichi Sakakibara, the main character, feels uncomfortable around the class – the atmosphere is one which leaves him strangely frightened by something uncertain. He then comes across a girl who attempts to communicate with him and the mystery thickens.
Most interestingly, the official site notes that after he meets the girl, “an unexpected disaster” occurs.
