the story took place in an elementary school that was torn down after the murders and disappearances of its staffs and students. another school, the Kisaragi Academy, was built on top of the elementary school site. one day, a group of students from Kisaragi Academy were telling ghost stories when an earthquake brought them to another dimension. in this dimension, the elementary school was still existed and was haunted by the ghosts of the murdered children. the group had to survive in order to find their way home.
despite the seemingly unoriginal horror, the series was surprisingly engaging. there were plenty of stomach-turning gore, where students were killed in ways unimaginable otherwise in this slaughterhouse. for those who watched Corpse Party: Missing Footage (2012) beforehand had the advantage of understanding the backdrop more thoroughly compared to those who didn't. for the later, there would be points where it was difficult to understand why the characters would behaved the way they had, while feeling like there were missing episodes or sort.
