Better than I thought it would be
29 May 2013 | by jaredrknightSee all my reviews

To those of you who have not seen the anime I'm going to give you a brief description of the story.

A young boy from tokyo moves to a village out in the middle of nowhere. It just so happens that the class he is entering at his new school is cursed.

The curse is such that the students in the class have to follow certain rules or else people in the class and their families have a chanced of being killed.

I would go into more detail but to do so would ruin some surprises this story contains.

For those of you who have seen the anime, you will be happy to know that the movie script stays almost the same as the animation. The major scenes from the anime are duplicated in the film pretty well.

Now i have seen a lot of live action anime films, and despite this one being obviously lower budget, it is still really good!

The actors and actresses even though they look a lot older than middle school kids did a great job acting. I was overall satisfied with the film and would recommend it to others. Some parts are corny but i thought the same for the anime.
