detective Kiba was instructed to investigate a strange case involving a girl hit by a train. a doctor was hired to restore the victim's health in an isolated hospital located in a jungle. a series of schoolgirls' murder took place right then, their limbs dismembered n put into boxes, waiting to be found. Kiba became more n more involved with the case when his train victim disappeared from the hospital n a ransom note was found. they feared for the worst, that she was kidnapped by the serial killer.
the anime started out being extremely dark n strange, giving pieces of explanations here n there that did not make much sense. it dragged on for more than half of the series before it finally started to make sense, which resulted to an unusual anime that was so absurdly dreamy yet so sinister to ignite our fear n interest. when i thought i finally understand what's going on n saw through everyone's hidden motives, i was surprised at the twist that has proven me wrong. it was an anime that kept one guessing until its very end.
