The incidents which occurred on August 14th and 15th bring a group of young boys and girls together… They are members of a group they call themselves the “Mekakushi Dan” (Blindfold Organization) and each member possesses a strange power involving their eyes. Will the members of this peculiar organization be able to solve the mysteries behind these incidents and see the truth?
I can see how some people would have difficulty understanding the plot behind this anime without watching the video series it was based off - the Kagerou Project. Though adaptations are never perfect, this one revolved around the assumption that the viewer had already seen the Kagepro videos. So, to one who hasn't seen them, the plot advances too quickly and has a few holes, and to those who have, it's missing a lot of content. That was my main issue behind Mekaku City Actors; it didn't tell all the stories behind the characters, and some don't even get their story at all. For example, while it did stress that there was a repeating day, it never details important events of that day; this includes one of my personal favorite videos, Kagerou Days. It does tell of a single loop that lead to the death of Hiyori, it fails to show the following loops where Hibiya dies in her place. Additionally, a lot of character insight that is provided in the videos is absent in the anime. While it was still nice to watch, I think more time should've been put into its development.
To be honest, this anime was great but at some parts during the anime i didnt know what was going on because each episode would just jump to a new character. I also thought that this anime would of been even better if they made the anime longer (1-24 episodes) it seemed like the anime was more rushed. The characters, Animation, voice actors and storyline were perfect a total 10/10 but again its a little confusing when jumping from place to place in every episode.
I like to make my review short, sweet, and down to the point. If you want to know about the plot of this anime -- read what anime-planet wrote. (I say it's not the best). Animation: Not the most detailed in the world but I did like it that way. I feel like the style of the art gives the anime its own characteristic. Staying within the area of mystery. A big YES was the angles the we saw from -- really great. Sound: Decent. I liked it. Nothing special. Characters: We got to dig deep within the back stories of everyone but I still feel confused. But honestly I think that was the anime's goal. I really LOVED how each character's background was unique to them and how intresting it really was. Overall: This was the first anime I watched where I asked myself multiple times "What the hell is going on?!". Even after the last episode finished I kinda just sat there letting it all seep in. So, if your looking for an insane, slightly confusing, intresting, mystery with a dash of supernatural. Watch this now.
