I've been keeping my eye on this one as information has been coming out about it
So far, it looks like it might actually be pretty good.
I kinda hope Sentai picks this up, or at the very least, someone simulcasts it.

I'm going with either CrunchyRoll or Sentai for this. Probably licensed for Sentai with a simulcast on CR deal if anything. I hear the Geneon Universal titles are finally starting to move so I have a feeling between them and DBZ Funimation has it's hands full. Plus noticing they seem to be slowing a little since they've moved back to owned by their selves .

Apparently I missed this thread a while ago. I'm certainly interested in trying to watch Another, especially with how much praise I've heard about it from the J-List blogger. Sorry, I don't know his name, but he's got a lot of interesting things to say and many of the shows/games he recommends do sound good.

Strange, I can't stand Hollywood horror (Very dull and boring to me, it's just a massive fright fest with no real attempt at a storyline. I almost fell asleep watching House on a Haunted Hill back when it was in theaters.), but I usually love horror animes. And remember, it's an anime, you need to take a few things with a grain of salt. Not to mention, I like trying to figure out what is going on before they tell me.

I agree with you Razmoudah. I have no love for Hollywood horror or much of anything from Hollywood for that matter. However, some of the Japanese horror films I've seen were done really well, that is until Hollywood makes their version! I find foreign films in general to be much better and some TV as well. That being said, I also enjoy horror anime. There is definitely more of a story to enjoy.
