Another 1-3

A boy transfers to a high school in a small town, where he stumbles into a mystery centered on a classmate who shares the name of a girl in that class who died 26 years earlier.

While detective stories seem to be beyond the skill of most Japanese writers, give them a high school urban legend and they can work wonders. It’s dark, it’s creepy, it’s full of dolls, and I have no idea where it’s going to go from here. I suspect that people will start dying, and then it will be up to the protagonist to fix everything before his entire class ends up in pools of their own blood. Even if he is a rather generic lead, whose entire personality consists of being irresponsibly curious and ignoring warnings from others, the main focus of the story is not him, but rather the secrets that surround the town. It’s had a solid build-up so far, and I am looking forward to finding out what the hell is going on.
