Very well done!!
9 February 2003 | by (East Coast, USA) – See all my reviews

I was surprised at this. I've seen the original Ring, Ring 2, Ring 0, the American "The Ring", the Korean "Ring Virus", read the manga, and will read the novel this spring. I would think that ring has been beaten to death. But this proves that it can still be a good story. Saishuushou is like a Ring joke to ppl, a lot of ppl don't really like it. I absolutely loved all 12 hours of it. It was very clever, and the cursed video was amazing (episode 2). Asakawa is a guy in this, and the man who plays him is just great. Everything about this series was wonderful. NOTE: it's NOT scary! It is not a horror series. It is strictly a drama, wich maybe a few starts in it. Keep that in mind when watching, please don't expect a scary imitation of "Ring". Saishuushou is it's own thing, and take it that way. Go into it with an open mind, and you'll love it!
