Tasogare Otome x Amnesia

To this day I’m still not sure what I watched when I started up the first episode. I was really confused at first, especially when Momoe-chan, one of the main characters, kept going on about the supernatural and whatnot. I’m glad I kept watching though, as things soon started to make a lot more sense.

The artwork, in my opinion, is absolutely nothing special. However, I feel that the artwork isn’t what’s more important about shows like these. Now don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing actually wrong with the artwork. It’s just not that amazing, that’s all.

I do feel that the story more than makes up for it. The episode started out strangely, it ended strangely and I’m pretty sure that most of the episodes will be strange as well. That’s perfectly fine. I think that fits very well with a mysterious horror anime. A little bit of mystery there, a smidgen of horror there, and a little bit of supernatural romance to top it all off. What do you get? An interesting anime!

I do recommend this anime to everyone who likes the supernatural. Most supernatural anime go hand in hand with horror and romance, so it’s only natural that I recommend this one. There’s just one thing that I would like to say about this anime; I feel that a few of the characters could do with a change. They look to plain. But that’s just my opinion, of course.

Plot Summary: The story takes place in Seikyou Private School. A facility that consists of multiple buildings that connect together to accommodate both junior and senior high school students. Sixty years of ongoing renovations and expansions have meant most of the old inner structures have been sealed and abandoned. Classrooms turned into storage rooms, staircases no longer in use, hallways like dark alleys. With the existence of such a maze-like building, it is only natural that rumours of the paranormal would appear.

One day first-year middle school student Teiichi Niiya gets lost in this maze and by chance arrives at an old storage room. This is where he meets Yuuko Kanoe, a mysterious girl with raven black, long silky hair and a tall and slender figure, who introduces herself as the ghost of the old school building. For some unexplainable reason Niiya is the only one able to see this spirit and she herself does not have any recollection of the reasons or time of her death, nor any lingering feelings about life itself. Curious about the circumstances of her death the two create a paranormal investigation club and seek to find out the truth about it and the many other mysteries surrounding the school.
