Heavenly Host Elementary School is a legendary elementary school for ghost stories due to its mysterious past. It was torn down following the murders and disappearances of several of its staff and students and now another school called Kisaragi Academy has been built over it. One rainy night a group of Kisaragi students still at school decide to perform the "Sachiko Ever After" charm, which will unite them forever as friends. Upon completion of the charm, a sudden earthquake transports them to Heavenly Host Elementary School, which still exists and is haunted by murderous ghosts. Seperated, the students try to survive the mysterious forces of the school and find their way home as they uncover the horrific past of Heavenly Host. Written by Anonymous

Starts off well but goes nowhere
15 July 2017 | by benpowell-27307See all my reviews

I had high hopes for this anime as I am a massive fan of anything to do with horror. I have also recently started watching some anime.

There were certain aspects of this anime which are outstanding, especially the artwork.

The best part about the anime was the ATMOSPHERE, which Japanese horror excels in. It constantly gives you an unsettled feeling; you almost feel as if you are trapped in the school with the students.

Now for the bad part. This anime started off well, with a good sense of mystery and unsettling, impending doom. As I have already stated, the atmosphere in this anime is fantastic. The first episode actually scared me (a little). After that, it all goes downhill from here- the anime goes from genuine horror to full-on, hardcore, graphic-as-hell torture porn which Quentin Tarantino would be proud of. Young, teenage girls ultimately meeting their demise in horrible DISGUSTING ways happens virtually every five seconds (Yuka's dead was one of the most disgusting and disturbing things I've seen in my life, and I've seen Human Centipede). I don't know how I made it through all four OVA episodes, especially when it turns from horror to graphic deaths/torture etc. And the ending was terrible too. If this anime has more episodes released, I am staying as far away from them as possible. Fun fact: Sachiko looks EXACTLY like Alma Wade from F.E.A.R.
