WELL GOOD
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.

– Pacing
 
 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!

– Emotion
 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 

Quick thoughts on Spring 2013 Anime Season

As the season is nearing the halfway mark, I decided to share my opinions on the shows I am watching thus far. I’m not watching everything – I plan to marathon a few like Suisei no Gargantia and Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince at the end.

Hataraku Maou-sama! 

My favorite of the season thus far. It’s a comedy with the supernatural and demons with hero’s mixed together into one gigantic salad. The Demon Lord, Maou, and his servant, Ashiya, get stranded in the Human world after a fierce battle in their own world. They blend into human society and live their lives in poverty. I would recommend this if you like comedy with some cool action scenes

Shingeki no Kyojin

You’ve probably already heard of this anime, with all the hype that its getting. I will make this brief – it has a unique story with gore and action scenes pilled high. If your into that sort of stuff, give it a watch. I myself read the manga, and have to say this is one faithful manga adaption.

Date a Live

This isn’t exactly generic, but not unique either. It’s a typical romantic comedy, but set up like a dating video game. Our main character, Shidou, must date spirit girls in order to protect the world. If you like generic romantic comedy’s with some supernatural elements, give this a watch.

Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge

I bring you, the anime with the hair fetish. If Cuticle Tantei Inaba wasn’t enough. Well, give it a go if your into that.
In all seriousness, this hasn’t been bad so far. The story revolves around Iwai, the hair queen, and Kiri’s relationship. Kiri fights off the author’s attempts at Iwai’s life, because if she is killed, their wish may be granted. Kiri, being an author himself, can protect her. Romance and supernatural aspects, with some fan service thrown in.
(Kiri is the one with the hair fetish btw)

Excuse me for my lazyness, but I can summarize the rest of these shows in a few words

RDG: Red Data Girl is Japanese Shinto legends with some romance and supernatural aspects.

Karneval (TV) is the generic shoujo of the season

Nyaruko-san and Oreimo are just second seasons, much like their prequels.

Please comments and give constructive criticizm for my post, I would appreciate it greatly
