First Look: Ookami Kakushi

Title: Ookami Kakushi
Genre: Action, Mystery, Horror, Psychological, Thriller

First Look: When I first heard about this anime I was really looking forward to it. However, after watching it I’m not really sure what to think. I do like the mystery behind the anime, and the fact that they didn’t just give it away in the first 4 episodes. The problem is the character models really. The characters don’t really seem all that great, and most of them are just creepy. I understand the creepiness factor needed for a supernatural, horror, mystery anime but sometimes it just goes to a level of weird that I just don’t want to watch. The other less creepy characters seem normal and are nothing special. I don’t dislike or like any of them, which isn’t such a good thing. I rather I hate a character than feel indifferent if they play a main role in an anime. The art style isn’t that great either, attention to detail seems to be lost in this anime. The backgrounds also seem low budget compared to many I have seen this season. The anime can still take a lot of turns which is great because a mystery shouldn’t be solved so quickly. After watching four episodes of this anime I’m still wondering if I should keep up with it or let this one drop.
Final statements: For a horror, supernatural, mystery I can see this one turning out pretty well. The characters for me aren’t that interesting so it is hard to get attached to the anime. I’m not really sure what to think of this anime, the genre leaves it hard to have a solid opinion in only four episodes. On the fence.
