‘Another is the kind of series with cliffhangers at the end of every single episode. Some viewers may watch the entire series all at once if they enjoy such tense shows. The pacing and character development usually fall flat in short anime shows. But the 12-episode run of ‘Another’ makes its twelve episodes work to its advantage. This is a very clever series with an equally smart plot.
In terms of the animation overall, it wouldn’t be considered as having a very high production value. Even the smallest of details are taken into account, so we see, for instance, crows perched near rusty old buildings in the background, searching for food. These elements combine to further emphasize the show’s intentionally decrepit feel. In every episode, you would feel in a totally different atmosphere that has never been experienced before.
In case if you are still on the same page, I highly recommend you watch Another, one of the best horror anime of this decade. The show can be watched at any time before midnight. It’s as simple as turning on Netflix and turning off the lights. I promise you you’ll lose a few hours of sleep on it but believe me, you’ll never regret it. Towards the end, you might find a few plot holes along with some bland characters. You should be able to tolerate a slasher horror film like ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ that has no character development, so this isn’t that terrible. After watching the first season of ‘Another’, you may be eagerly waiting for the next one. Hopefully, we’ll be able to share some news about that in this post.
Another Season 2 Release Date
An episode was aired each week between January 12, 2010, and March 27, 2012, making up the first season of Another. Additionally, a prequel OVA aired on May 26, 2012, but no further news was released. The second season of ‘Another’ has not been rumored or speculated about as of yet. The likelihood of P.A Works presenting a new one is very low, therefore. A possible release date for Another season 2 could be 2021 or 2022, even if the studio decides to renew it. This section will be updated as soon as more information becomes available.

Here’s Another Season 2 plot:
The town of Yomiyama was gripped with fear and darkness after a school kid named Misaki was shot to death in 1972. Despite everyone’s knowledge of the town’s dark secrets, no one really dares to reveal them. Kouichi Sakakibara, 15, enrolled at Yomiyama North Middle School 26 years after Misaki was a student there. Upon arriving there, he notices that every student in his class is gripped by the same murkiness. Another girl, Mei Misaki, wearing an eyepatch over one eye, catches his attention as well. The mystery deepens when he realizes that no one else has noticed her except him.
With time, Kouichi also discovers why everyone around him is hanging their faces in a gloomy way. As he delves deeper into the mysteries, he finds himself drawn into a world filled with horrifyingly tragic realities. There is also an OVA postlude to this season, which is sometimes called the “0th episode”. We travel back in time during this special episode and learn more about Mei Misaki’s past.
Another Season 2 Cast
During her time at Yomiyama North Middle School, Mei Misaki was a classmate of Kouichi. Wearing the school uniform, she typically walks around with an eye patch covering her left eye. Seeing and enjoying art is her only hobby. Despite how many friends one makes along the way, she believes that in the end, we will all be alone. Because of this, she initially distances Kouichi from herself, even though he still stays close by. She ends up developing feelings for him because he is the only person in her school to stand up for her and not ignore her.
The 15-year-old Kouchi Sakakibara attends Yomiyama North Middle School in Tokyo. After his mother passed away, his father is working in India and he lives with his grandparents and aunt. Frequently, Kouchi can be seen reading American horror novels, such as those by Stephen King and John Saul. He is intrigued by the school’s dark past, which explains his curiosity.
