Synopsis:

The series focuses on Eiri Kurahashi, a college art student who works in an antique shop. One day, he sees the image of a girl in an antique glass. To his shock, she appears to be moving and living out her life before his eyes. He becomes infatuated with the girl, and one night at midnight, he somehow makes contact with her. He learns that her name is Cossette, and that she was an aristocrat's daughter during the 18th century. She reveals to him that her spirit has been entrapped within the glass because the artist Marcello Orlando murdered her. She tells Eiri that, in order to set her free, a man must be willing to take upon himself punishment for the sins Marcello committed.




Hmm, has anyone seen this short collection of OVA before? I very recently did and thought was kinda strange, confusing and yet interesting same time. The soundtrack and artwork was surprisingly good as well as the psychological twists. According to ANN:


It as "an artsy, stylish supernatural horror story about love and obsession. Its dramatic visuals, exceptional artistry, and sumptuous musical scoring make watching it quite an experience, and the story isn't half bad, either."


Epic soundtrack is epic. It also, reminded me of Hell Girl, Gosick, Rozen Maiden, and the recent Another that's streaming here on CR. Hmm, if this ever becomes an official series...

Because English isn't the only foreign language the Japanese have an interest in.
