Small Village, Big Secrets (Anime)

These dark anime take place in secluded villages seemingly lost to time. Sure they look cosy and hospitable, but they may be concealing something more sinister - whether it's a complex web of lies amongst the townsfolk, a supernatural entity or something horribly unspeakable. Often, the events of the story will be set off by the main character moving back to their pastoral hometown, making a Lifestyle Change by going rural, or experiencing a tragedy that draws them to the village.
