MVM Picks Up Horror Anime Series 'Another'

The hits keep coming from MVM with the announcement that they have acquired another new series for the UK.

Horror fans rejoice, for MVM's latest purchase is Another, adapted from the novel by Yukito Ayatsuji.

Koichi Sasakibara has to move in with this aunt and grandparents in the small town of Yomiyama while his father is abroad on business.

In the local hospital Koichi meets Mei Misaki, who wears an eye-patch. But when he starts classes at school, none of the other students pay any attention to Mei who sits alone drawing.

When Koichi's classmates start to die in gruesome circumstances, he starts to suspect there is something seriously wrong in Yomiyama that is tied to a tragedy in the past.

Director Tsutomu Mizushima has worked on xxxHolic, Blood-C and the comedy Squid Girl.

MVM will release the 12 episode series and one OVA in 2013 with subtitles and an English dub on Blu-ray.

Cue an Abbott and Costello sketch -

'MVM has picked up Another anime for the UK.'

'What's the name of the show?'

'It's Another anime.'

'Yes, but what's the name of the show?'

'It's Another anime series.'

'I know it's another anime series, but what's it called?'

The rest writes itself.
