    Episode 1

    Caught in a web of pranks.

    So this horror story begins with Souichi playing pranks on others, and has some sort of fascination with spiders seeing that he tries to scare Sayuri with one, but Souichi himself is afraid of them while is father is not. And then inflicting that curse on one of his classmates making him believe that a spider attacked him when in fact it's just somebody attacking him with toilet paper, now that's scary. Deen is definitely the right studio for this show as they are great at adapting horror anime. Even though it wasn't anything special, at least it held my interest.

    I'll give it another episode, but chances are pretty slim I'll continue to watch as horror just isn't my cup of tea. Still, I found myself more into this show than I was expecting.

      Re: Episode 1

      Think there's even a single Ito fan who watched this and thought, "Yep, this is exactly what I wanted"? I highly doubt it. I really don't know who they expect to enjoy this in any way.
