I am so pissed off.Pissed off, and disgusted. I can't recall how I discovered the Corpse Party series, even though it was only about an hour ago, but I decided I wanted to watch it. Then I learned Corpse Party: Missing Footage came first, so I figured I should watch it first. Add to the fact it's recommended with one of my favourite anime ever, Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni mostly due to it's similar level of violence, I was all excited and stuff!So I watched it.The opening scene was effective. Too effective. I had to actually turn down my earphones because the sounds of crying and torture was too much for me.And then it kept going. Then it wore out it's welcome.And then it showed in graphic detail, a blade going into an eye. Then it showed the killer. Kind of. And then it cut to a young sister sibling not understanding why bathing with her brother was weird.And then it cut to the same sister character fondling another girl's breasts. And then mock cunnilingus. Something about a festival, then we see the killer again, in the same recycled footage we saw them the first time.I just...what?!No.Higurashi worked because it lulled the viewer into a false sense of security. It built it's characters up, then mindf-ucked them and broke them down, brutally. Other anime like ShadowStar: Naru Taru, Bokurano, GANTZ, and to some extent Chaos;Head and Elfin Lied at least had characters that had actual introductions or arcs. But Corpse Party just wanted to bash me in my face with how dark and edgy it thinks it is. Screw this anime. Seriously.
The only main purpose to this 11 minute episode is to show a little bit on the character relationships before the events unfolded. Other than that, there isn't much point.One of those clips involves showing off some loli chest in an incest bath scene (not exactly odd or uncommon among family in many cultures) if you are watching the uncensored version, which is the only nudity it refers to. It makes a bit more sense to watch this before the main show I think, otherwise it feels like going backwards.
Well, I will admit I'm glad I decided to watch the censored version instead. Usually I'm not terrible with blood or gore but somehow, the screams alone made me feel nauseous. Judging from other reviews on here, since I'm terrible with anything that involves piercing of the eyes, I am even happier I chose the censored version. It was odd and seems inconsistent. The opening involved a few minutes of screaming, blood, gushing noises and an extremely unsettling vibe. However, a few minutes later, they cut to a younger sister practically begging her brother to let her wash him, and then yet another pair of siblings (a younger and older sister) which I feel was only added for some sort of fan service. Nothing particularly caught my attention and I found myself a little bit bored, honestly.
