Corpse Party: Tortured Souls is the perfect anime for the halloween/fall season. With only four episodes, this anime is the perfect substituion for one hour and a half scary movie. Becoming more of a gory mystery series rather than a horror anime, there are still enough chilling and suspenseful to keep you on the edge of your seat. I reccomend this to anyone looking to add to their list of the scary/unsettling genre. Plus that ending will just leaving you with the most bone chilling feeling ever! (Watch after the credits of the last episode for sure.) BTW If these four episodes let you wanting more. Whether it be back story or more character development, I recommend that you play at least the first Corpse Party game for PSP which you can download to your vita from the Playstation store. If you at all enjoyed the anime and want to go more in depth then the video game is a MUST.
For anyone wondering how the last guy didn't make it back, i have an explanation. He Naomi picking something off the corpse in a previous scene and asked her what she was doing. She replied, "nothing." Later, he asked the ghost of that dead girl what happens to someone who doesn't use their piece of the paper doll when they return to the real world. We never get to hear her response. Now, when the three of them are going to return he knows that she has a piece of paper from one of the dead members of the group. He knows that she can't return with that piece because it's original owner is dead. Instead, he offers her his own piece and says that he will use his sister's piece, knowing full well she is dead and he will not be able to return with them. So in essence, he sacrificed himself so that she could get back to the real world. But after watching after the credits, who really came out on top of that one?? All in all I think it was a great twist.
