What We Can Expect
Firstly, for a psychological horror, the execution has to be great. Secondly, the plot has to be twisted. The manga has good reviews so we can hope for the best. The art quality is good that is a great plus for the anime. The character designs are innocent and it is not easy to make out that this is a horror anime. We can expect some good stuff from this anime. In conclusion, I certainly look forward to this series.
