376 Ratings


When Alice transfers to a new school, she hears an urban legend about a student who disappeared and discovers that she lives next to his old house, now occupied by her classmate Hana. They decide to investigate the “murder case,” but soon find that their lack of detective skills may be an obstacle.

Our take

A murder case lies at the heart of Shunji Iwai’s cozy mystery, yet the real source of suspense arises from the all-too-relatable conundrums faced by teenagers. From the anxiety of transferring schools to the thrill of crushes, this slice-of-life anime is lovingly sensitive to the woes of girlhood.
