Moving away from Aniplex, the Another horror novel's anime adaption launched an official website preview. It confirmed that the show will begin airing sometime next year, and that Noizi Ito, known for his work on Haruhi Suzumiya, is responsible for the original character designs.

The novel, 1st released in 2009, centers on a school class that has fallen subject to some strange curse, which results in a string of unavoidable deaths.
