Personal review:
You might be a fan of Yamishibai, Kagewani or Spirited Away and for animated movie and series with these genres, we cannot get enough of the thrill, color, and excitement of these amazing works of art. I will introduce to you another anime if you haven't watched it before, similar to those listed above favorites. 

I discovered this anime thru one of a sneak preview in a facebook post which piqued my curiosity, it delivered an interesting story and combined with perfect animation, I immediately had to search the name of this anime and found out the name is Gyo: Tokyo Fish Attack.

I couldn't get enough of it thinking that this scene was an anime after the SEA KING from ONE PUNCH MAN had died and that the whole fish kingdom was attacking the whole city. Of course, that really was not the case. 

Towards the end of the show, it has given some theories about the disease but is yet certain what the real cause is, this mystery combined with its uniqueness -from then on, I considered it on my top shelf of most favorite anime to watch.

The anime is EXCEPTIONAL! The concept is unique! I have watched almost all anime Horror genres and I have never seen a story like this ever in my life. 

This is unlike any other horror anime ever watched.

This anime has a manga version but I would advise you to watch the anime instead cause there is a big difference in the manga that you might not be happy about.

It gave me chills realizing the fact that the sea is a wide undiscovered area in the world that is almost impossible to discern. Imagine how much population of the creatures are out there! It's endless!

The story of the main character named Kaori and the journalist Tsuyoshi Shirakawa adds fascinating curiosity if they might end up together after Kaori's fiancee turned into the unusual creature. 

It is appealing how Tsuyoshi Shirakawa had changed his initial motive from Kaori as they get closer to each other. 

Moreover, the extra scenes of Kaori's friends Aki and Erika had me curious as to how they all got together as they all have different personalities, it is then I assumed that since Kaori mentioned that they are in college vacation that I got the idea that they met at their school.

Despite the differences, It is obvious enough that Kaori was the one bring the group together and it was an awkward horrid situation when she left them in the cabin.

It is even imaginable how Kaori had described the "Stench of death" smelled like with the combined 2D-3D artwork apocalyptic scenes build out a single image of a decaying fish or body would be in this situation. 

While everybody is almost at the brink of their madness, Tadashi's uncle, a famous inventor, appears to be a typical mad scientist, until a video where Kaori discovered what happened to Tadashi shocked her and made her decide to search for his fiancee only to find out that he had become a living guinea pig. 

The heart thumping horror not only gave me chills but also touched my heart when Kaori discovers that his fiancee is conscious even with the current mysterious monster form. 

Boy did it broke my heart that she lost his fiancee then followed by Tsuyoshi which had been infected while he was trying to calm Kaori from her suicide attempts to rescue her fiancee. 

The story has left a lot of questions on my mind and a potential growth is present, I would definitely love to know what happened next.
