In order to escape, Yuri races to the rooftop of the building that she was in only to see a lifeless world remaining before her.

Yuri eventually finds out that there are a number of masked killers nearby who were all restless to threaten their newly discovered victims, leaving Yuri to question if they will actually be able to make it out alive.

‘HIGH-RISE INVASION’ Season 1: Review

‘High Rise Invasion’ is a horror Anime series that shoves its characters into dubious circumstances every step of the way. It could have been a gradual process, however, the series decides to throw everything that they have at the viewers as soon as ‘High-Rise Invasion’ starts, for an extraordinary impact.

Yuri remains a female protagonist who has a sense of fear within her as she keeps a lookout for what is coming next that is killing all the innocent human beings. She overcomes her fear by picking up weapons and shielding herself with them. She also finds it important to pick up necessary supplies that she comes across from time to time. The Masked killers, on the other hand, are worse than any other villains showcased on a web series. Why? Their sole purpose in life is to push other people into committing suicides by jumping off of ledges. One can never quite get over this concept after watching such gruesome and violently smothered content.
