Another Season 2 Storyline
The story is set in a town called Yomiyama. In 1972, in Yomiyama North Middle School’s class 3-3, a popular student passed away. The name of the student was Misaki. Since then, Yomiyama is gripped with darkness and fear. The story takes place 26 years later when a 15-year old student transfers into the 3-3 class of the middle school. His name is Kouichi Sakakibara. He finds a gloomy atmosphere gripping the school.
Kouichi also finds himself being drawn to a strange eye-patch wearing student named Mei Misaki. He keeps getting closer to Mei and eventually starts discovering the truth behind the gloominess around him. In the first season, the series follows Mei, Kouichi and everyone around them as they start unravelling the horrible events surrounding them. They unravel the mysteries of Yomiyama.
