If you want to see something with a psychological take, but different from something you are already used to in anime, this is perfect.
The quality goes up and down between the different short stories in this anime. Purely worth watching for No Longer Human. Haunting story.
“They are evergreen because they are masterpieces.”
Episodic series that varies in quality. I liked the adaptations of Osamu Dazai’s work the most, Hashire Melos is a perfect 10.
Amazing short stories that’ll leave you in thought. A gem.
A perfect way to learn about Japanese Literature without reading all of those pure literature.
As often happens with anthology series, some tales sit better than others. As a whole the stories were great, each carried itself well.
