OFF TO THE REVIEW
OAV is not the actual ending of the game Corpse Party. Just clarifying
If you were to not compare this OAV to the game, it’s not terrible. The animators did a good job on the gore aspects. The creepy atmosphere Heavenly Host Elementary has is also perfectly shown in the OAV. Beyond these few points, Corpse Party: Tortured Souls fell short. There were alot of things that I did not like about the OAV, but there where a few good points.
The pacing was absolutely dreadful. The animators attempted to rush through the whole story in just 4 episodes, leaving out important key points in the story. I was left wondering “how did this character end up here?”, “why is this happening?”. I know they only had a limited time frame, but they totally cut out the part of Ayumi and Yoshiki searching for the tongues!
The part where Yuka dies probably irked me the most. Yes Satoshi was distraught, but just for the one scene. Afterwards he never really showed sadness again. Jeez, his sister just died! Maybe’s it’s just his character. Ayumi on the other hand barley acknowledged Yoshiki’s death. Naomi was the only one really sad after losing a friend, Seiko.
– Death Scenes
One thing I really liked about the OAV was all the detail in the death scenes. Yes they were rushed, but still had enough impact to make you think “woah that’s gross!”, and “no he/she died!”. Yuka to me personally had the worst death scene.
– Plot Changes
Did not mind these. I’m hopeful that this can get popular so we can have a real Corpse Party TV show adaption!
Summing this up, the OAV had a rushed pace, spiraling emotions, and okay death scenes. If you were to watch it without knowing the game, you might like it better but be more confused. In conclusion, the OAV was okay. Watch it if your a fan of the series.
Yuka and Yoshiki T_T (I actually don’t care for Satoshi lol)
What happened to Satoshi? How the hell could his body just disappear like that..
Well there goes Morshirige
