The novel is much longer I would say.

Much longer. The anime is 12 episodes * ~20 minutes = 240 minutes = 4 hours. Even short doujin VNs such as Narcissu and True Remembrance are longer.

Of course, it depends on your reading speed. I'm a slow reader, it took me 32 hours to complete it. I think a really fast reader can complete it in as little as 14 hours. Either way, it's much longer than the anime. And better in every way.

An anime hardly would have a longer lenght than it's orginal content. (That being a novel, a VN or even a manga.)

So far the only anime that contained more stuff than its orginal content was Shuffle, which still was less longer than the VN.Last modified on 2010-10-11 at 15:42

Of course the novel is longer and its story has more branches and various endings too.
@ ahazkun: Making anime is not easy. Naturally, it can only take 1 story. If more, the story must be cutted and combined for making it "get along well" with another stories.Last modified on 2010-11-15 at 07:06

I can't believe they were even aloud to release the anime of this. They changed it so much that i can bearly recognise it in the first 2 episodes alone. And they completely ruined the 'horror' feel that the game held.

there's no "horror" feel in the game......
just "lulz" and "nonsense" feel...
but addicted read anyway....

And why the hell did you rate it with 9/10?
I mean it's just lulz and nonsense.

I mean, sure, right, lulz, okay, if you say so... Then I guess I was the only one who found stuff like a guy's brain scooped out with a teaspoon kind of disturbing... Yeah, right, silly me...

@15: how could you say there is horror? Do you have cross-phobia?
@16: and why the hell that i could not rate it 9/10? did people invented any rule against "lulz, nonsense but addicted and good" read?
@17: dunno what you babbling about....

Nope but normally lulz and nonsense aren't things which leads to a high score. How can nonsense and lulz be awesome? I mean sure it's sometimes nice to read but...meh, it's your score.

@18: if you don't know what 17 is talking about then it makes it seem a fair bit like you haven't read it. And i do believe there was other horror elements in the game besides the staking, one point in perticular where a mother goes crazy and eats her dead baby's corpse. I think you could safely say that is horror.Last modified on 2011-11-27 at 09:10
