After reading the novel and watching the anime, I had high hopes for the next episode of S/0.I was looking forward to finding new information that could give me tips about the class 3 curse.

Unfortunately this did not happen.Nevertheless, I want to praise this book because I liked it a bit.

I did not see the upcoming final phrase and I was grateful for explaining the events in the last chapter.The prequel manga, 0, did not give me anything new, but confirmed the tragedy that Koichi survived when he killed Reiko.

Episode S

I was looking forward to entering Mei’s head.It would be interesting to see how she deals with the curse and her role as “absent”.

Unfortunately, we don’t understand this.Episode S begins a few months after the end of the calete, but Koichi did not return to Tokyo.

Koichi decides to visit Mei and she let him in.Then he asks him if he wants to know what happened to her during the week when she was out of Yomiyama.

About how she met the first spirit, Sakaki, because Koichi is crazy, agrees and begins Mei.

Except that it is told from the point of view of the spirit, not Mei.Which would not be bad, except for some details that she should not know or be able to guess, taking into account the time that has passed.

Unfortunately, the book has about 30-50 pages of dropping information, reverse tracking and repeating.The book has just over 200 pages, not counting those reserved for the manga.

There was no time for useless information!But he explains a few things.Teroya Sakaki is dead.

We know when, where and what ended his life.But his death was not made public and his body can not be found anywhere.

Teroya Sakaki was a member of class 3 in 1987, which is one of those that are commonplace.But he did not die of a curse.

And before him there were no ghosts, so what is happening?Episode S is a fantastic mysterious novel when the point comes to the heart of the matter.

Mei herself gives us many tips, telling the story to Koichi.It is wonderful to watch Koichi trying to solve the secret by referring to the famous horror movies.

Only to make mei say that she never heard about it.Episode S could also give us a clue who would affect Another 2001.

Which will be released on December 13, 2022 and I can’t wait to see if I’m right!

Episode 0

I don’t know if it should be 0 or 0, but the manga prequel is short and sweet.We see Reiko in the third grade of junior high school and it turns out as you expect.

Students and members of their families begin to die within two degrees, the first of whom is a child’s friend from childhood.Then finally we have short moments with the younger Mr. Chibiki, little Koichi and his mother Ritsuko.

Fortunately, we do not see the moment of Ritsuko’s death, but we see her dying.And Ritsuko seems to be visited by a character from the shadow he calls, Misaki-Kun.

Just like in the original Misaki, with whom she went to school during the third year of junior high school!Both the anime and the novel were aimed at maintaining death as caused by a disease or a tragic accident.

So why should Misaki visit Ritsuko when he dies?Will he appear in the manga Another or was it a special event because Ritsuko was his classmate?

What will happen in Another 2001?Will he appear or will he remain the main character?

Let’s find out together in a few months, and in the meantime I will order a manga!
