Horror Anime Set on Roosevelt Island

The horror anime Red Garden is coming to DVD this September per the linked website. You can also watch a video preview of the series at that link.

Per the site:

About Red Garden:
From studio GONZO and director Kou Matsuo (Rozen Maiden) comes an urban horror masterpiece as sexy as it is disturbing. Unique character designs, stylish settings, and a haunting story make Red Garden one of the most anticipated titles of 2007.
An odd string of suicides surrounds a private institution on Roosevelt Island. On the night a classmate dies, Kate, Rachel, Rose and Claire wake with no memories of the evenings’ events. The next night, the four girls are drawn together by mysterious red butterflies only they can see. Converging at Central Park, the girls are approached by a strange woman who tells them they are dead. Now, the four girls must work together to learn the secrets of their death – and the means to return to their previous life.”

Just what we need another Dark Water type of reference.

Update 8/8 12 Noon:

Back in August 2006, the Gothamist published a post on Red Garden. The below link includes a few sketches of this "animated" Roosevelt Island.
