Otherside Picnic Release Date, New Preview Video, Plot, Cast, and Where To Watch?: The official website of the upcoming anime just released a new video that features the opening song of the anime. Otherside Picnic is based on a yuri light novel series of the same name written by Iori Miyazawa. The manga is loved by the fans because of the flavor of horror it has. But the main genre of the Otherside Picnic is Yuri. Hayakawa Publishing has released four-volume since 2017. A manga adaptation by Eita Mizuno came out in 2018. Let's look at all the new information we have regarding the anime.
Otherside Picnic Plot
You can read the synopsis on the official site of the anime. The story revolves around a girl named Sorawo Kamikoshi. She navigates through a place she calls Otherside. She is rescued by Toriko Nishina when she was paralyzed by an unknown creature. They both go back to Japan, to Ōmiya City, Saitama. Both of them became good friends and now they have to explore and survive in this unknown world where real ghost stories and dangerous beings like Kunekune exist. For research purposes and for-profit, both of them will have to survive through all of this.
If you like science fiction and yuri you will definitely love it. And if we are talking about horror, it will really depend on how the makers will adapt it. Because, if the makers can adapt the novel pretty well you will some good horror context in the anime. So it can be a hit and miss with horror fans but we will have to wait for anime to find that out.
