Confusing and the animation was really horrible
27 October 2018 | by IrishchatterSee all my reviews

The only thing I liked about this anime a bit is the fact it does have that sorta scare vibe but at the same time, not enough. I know this was early 2000s but seriously, the animation was pretty crap and worst of all the storyline was all over the place. It made me confused af to what's going on and like when I don't know what's going on regardless of the genre in the anime, I get easily bored. That's why I decided to quit watching this anime after its 3rd episode. Tbh that's long enougn for me to realise this anime wasnt for me.

However I am so glad to hear that they rebooted this anime and that its coming out next year so im kinda looking forward to that tbh, because it's original didn't seem clearer enough for me to get excited over, I'm afraid......
