That being mentioned, there’s one style that undoubtedly hasn’t obtained the identical quantity of affection and a spotlight because the others. It’s Horror. And we’re speaking about anime which might be conceived to be pure horror, not tales which have horror components in them, comparable to Parasyte or Tokyo Ghoul. We’ll be fortunate to discover a handful of horror anime in a single yr. Fortunately, we get a brand new horror anime earlier than 2022 involves an finish.

1. Attention-grabbing Concepts
Regardless of its many issues and shortcomings, there are literally fairly a couple of fascinating concepts offered in Housing Advanced C. The execution could depart a lot to be desired, however the potential is clearly there. Out of a number of nice concepts offered on this sequence, there are two that stood out from the remainder. We attempt to keep away from mentioning any main spoilers right here, however should you actually wish to watch Housing Advanced C, then it is best to skip this half.
The primary fascinating thought is utilizing a single housing complicated because the setting for the whole story. Horror wants a powerful story and idea as its basis, that’s why utilizing a easy setting is often a good suggestion. That’s very true when you have a restricted time to current the story. That’s the reason you’ll see numerous horror films that came about in a haunted home, a cabin within the woods, a practice, a ship, and so forth. So utilizing an outdated housing complicated because the setting for the entire sequence allows the showrunners to focus solely on the story, with out having to fret about world-building.
The second is the thought of a robust entity secretly utilizing the housing complicated as its playground. As you’ll be able to learn from the abstract above, there are mysterious deaths occurring in Housing Advanced C. Effectively, because it seems, it has one thing to do with the traditional historical past of violence and human sacrifices that occurred in that city ages in the past. A being that’s concerned in that bloody battle is now the one who turns housing complicated C into its private playground. The distinction between the contained area of the housing complicated and a larger-than-life entity makes the story a lot extra fascinating to see.
1. Pacing Difficulty
Housing Advanced C is a four-episode-long mini-series, with every episode having about 23 minutes of runtime. Three episodes are used for the setup, whereas the ultimate one is the place every part all of a sudden occurs and we get the reason for every part that has occurred so far.
It is clear that Housing Advanced C needs to current itself as a slow-burn horror, however what we get on the finish is solely a sequence with a pacing problem. You spend the primary three episodes simply strolling round your neighborhood, and all of a sudden you’re in a rocket ship to Jupiter within the final episode.
The issue just isn’t solely the huge distinction between the gradual pacing of the primary three episodes and the tremendous quick pacing for the ultimate one but additionally the quantity of data that we get between the setup and the climax. A superb horror story scatters the knowledge all through the story, with a few pink herrings right here and there to spice issues up. On this sequence, nevertheless, we barely know what’s happening within the first three episodes, and all of a sudden we get tremendous dense info dumped on us within the final episode.
2. Over-Reliance on Exposition
Talking of tremendous dense info, after deciding to take issues gradual and let the story slowly unravel within the first three episodes, the showrunners all of a sudden determined to dump the knowledge all of sudden to us on the finish by way of a sequence of lengthy expositions from its characters, explaining every part that has occurred so far. “Present doesn’t inform” has been the mantra for storytelling for ages as a result of in order for you the viewers to lose themselves within the story, then it is best to present them what occurred, not inform it to their ears. Sadly, Housing Advanced C prefers to speak to us about its story at size, quite than letting us discover out about it by way of some fastidiously crafted scenes.
3. Plot Holes All over the place
As we’ve talked about within the earlier part, Housing Advanced C has numerous fascinating concepts that it needs to indicate us. Creature options, cosmic horror, deathly cult, serial killers, and so many others. The 2 talked about above are simply among the extra profitable ones, there are many others that fall flat and find yourself changing into nothing greater than plot holes.
Naming these plot holes one after the other will solely enhance the variety of spoilers on this overview, so we select not to try this. Nonetheless, this explicit problem, together with the opposite issues talked about above, wouldn’t exist if solely there have been extra episodes on this sequence. If solely the showrunners deal with Housing Advanced C like another common anime, which have at the very least 13 episodes in a season, then all of those issues may’ve been simply prevented. However alas, they determined to make a 4-episodes mini-series and ended up with this disappointment as an alternative.

Housing Advanced C has fairly a couple of fascinating concepts, however the execution leaves quite a bit to be desired. Most of its issues stem from the dearth of episodes that forestall the story from being absolutely fleshed out. That’s the reason regardless of having the potential to be present, a sequence of dangerous selections ended up turning it into a huge waste of time.
