Another

Has anyone seen the horror anime, Another? I believe it's based off of a novel of the same name. I was very intrigued by it, as it's a bit different from what I've seen before. No designated hero or villain. It's just a whole lot of senseless death. It is only 12 episodes long, and I've heard it's supposed to be made into a movie at some point, in addition to the sequels planned for it in the future.

Re: Another

First to post.

There will be a sequel to it? o_O You didn't tell me that.

Anyway, I have a question. It seems that those who are connected to class 3 or the curse die. I mean the nurse died right after talking to her brother about the curse. How come Lung problems is fine. He's been poking at it from the beginning. How does it choose its victims?

Re: Another

You're here!

From the looks of it, it doesn't seem to choose its victims. I believe the central point is that death simply claims at random, for no reason at all. If choice was involved, then the theme and conflict would be lost completely. These children are naturally innocent of any wrongdoings, the only fault they have is carrying the burden of class 3 on their backs.

Re: Another

Yes, get him to watch so you can ignore me.

I didn't think they had done anything wrong, but it just seems like whoever gets involved into it, dies. Except Kouichi or whatever his name is.

By the way, I found a guy in my class who has watched this. o_O

Re: Another

Really? Get him to come here . The Monster fanbase is so small, undeservedly so, but maybe I can spread Monster love through Another fans .

I won't ignore you, I'll just drag you both over here so we can be nerdy together .

Well, by default, they are involved, seeing as they are apart of Class 3. And the relatives are involved as well, simply because some of their family members are in Class 3. But that is the only association for the curse. Everything else is just spontaneous and with no proper strategy.

Re: Another

I don't know if he's a fan. He just got the umbrella referrence.

You always ignore me. Both of you. This whole "let's all be friends" or whatever is a lie.

I see. But you still haven't answered my bird question. What's so important about "Good morning Rei" and "Why?" that the bird constantly repeats it?

Re: Another

I can't tell you about that bird, otherwise I'll spoil it for you . "Rei" is for "Reiko", who is Kouichi's aunt.

Re: Another

No, but if Garwaing comes, you will.

You chose a bad time to care about spoiling it.

Re: Another

Not if you keep showing up .

I chose a bad time to be considerate? I think I'm doing you a favor. Otherwise, who knows what reaction you'll have in the end, if the reaction was not experienced while watching the anime. Just watch, ok? It's only 12 episodes . You go through Spn so quickly, surely you can finish this by the end of today.

Re: Another

Ok, maybe you don't ignore me, out of politeness. But you are quite reluctant to chat with me.

Well Spn happens to be in a language I understand. o_O Watching this is tiring. I can't watch more than one episode a day. Two if I try really hard.

Re: Another

Sparrow, I was under the impression that you wished to be fluent in many languages? How is this supposed to happen if you resent watching shows in different languages? How do you think I learned English, by being stubbornly opposed to the language just because I didn't know it?

Anyways, what episode are you on?

Re: Another

I will, as soon as my assumptions stop being right. o_O

You learned the same way I did. You had no choice. But I don't want to learn Japanese. And watching a movie with subtitles tires me. I'm not used to it.

5 is next I think.

Re: Another

Again...assumptions that your assumptions are right.

I taught myself English . Practiced it with my awful accent on my best friend . But, you're right, I didn't have a choice. But, you'll get used to subtitles. It can't be that hard, I only started watching with subtitles last year. I was fine with it.

-_- 5?

Re: Another

And aren't they? o_O

I taught myself too. Well sort of. I'm actually not sure how I learned it. I can't remember, I was too little. I don't like subtitles, They're distracting. It's hard to read and take in every detail of a scene. And I like details. o_O Good thing Another has more still frames than I have ever seen.

Sorry. I had exams. But now I'm finished.

Re: Another

No.

Your parents probably spoke to you a bit in English, and if you were surrounded by other English speakers, you would have picked the language up. I had to study from books . Came to the States knowing nothing.

Oh, that's a good excuse .

Re: Another

I'm having a hard time believing that. Your actions say otherwise.

Yes, my dad did speak English to me at times, and yes, I was surrounded by English speaking people. And now I mix English with Romanian and I make retarded mistakes in both, because I transliterate words, or I translate certain expressions word for word. It's funny to hear me speak with my dad or brother. Half a sentence in one language, half in the other. You had to learn from books? o_O But you were what, 4? You could have easily picked it up by just going to kindergarten.

But it's true. I had my last one yesterday. I didn't have the energy to concentrate on murderous curses.

Re: Another

What actions can you pull out from speaking over the internet? If you want proof, just look at the length of our visitor message conversations.

I was 6, so that's when you start first grade. They wouldn't let me into school because I couldn't speak English, so I spent that year teaching it to myself until I was fluent . With my mom's help.

Watch, watch, watch! I want to talk about it .

Re: Another

Your actions regarding answering me of course. And yes, they may be long, but they are made almost entirely when Garwain is offline. Which is kind of my point.

-_- I was close enough. So you went to school at 7, which is what is normal here.

I'm trying, I'm trying. BUt I can't find episode 5.

Re: Another

That's not true at all! I have a healthy balance between answering him and answering you.

It's normal to go to school at 6 in the Czech Republic. Over here, I think they start pre-school at 3 or so.

Find it, find it, find it!

Don't discuss downloads or anything in the open.
