Story

The storyline in this anime is brilliant. I think it is perhaps the best thriller anime. It is full of twists and turns and you are never really sure what is going to happen next. It is also interesting to think what you would do in that situation, making it ever more intriguing.

Animation

Excellent. Very immersive. It is very smooth and all the characters are designed well. 

 

Sound

Vocal performance is excellent but is let down by the soundtrack. The music is good but at times not in keeping with the mood

 

Characters

Well formed, if some are a bit annoying. Those characters are meant to be like that, and are such by design. The interplay between characters and the development of the main is what really keeps you watching.

 

Overall

Excellent thriller. A personal favorite
