Storyline

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

Excellent horror anime
29 June 2014 | by go-with_the-flowSee all my reviews

This is an excellent horror anime. The plot is very strong and with every episode becomes more and more profound and disturbing. The characters are all very interesting and relateable, each in their own strange way. There is ample gore and graphic imagery, with a few of the most imaginative/shocking deaths I've witnessed in a series. One of its shortcomings could be argued to be its duration (only four episodes) but at the same time, it stays fresh, non repetitive and easy to watch in a single sitting. There are a couple of minor plot holes and a few ideas that are toyed with but not fully developed but they don't take a significant tole on the quality of the anime. Warning: not for the squeamish
