First Impressions?

Funny episode although the horror theme I originally expected was killed. Yuuko's an epic troll and this episode shows exactly why you shouldn't fuck with ghosts. Anyways, I'll continue watching this and might give the manga a shot as well

Oooooooooh! Sounds like it will be good! I hope its not as bloody and horrific as Another (even though I loved it).

Episode 1

Interesting opening episode although I do admit that the horror level is no where near Another and leans more to the comedy side. The art is beautiful and so is Yuuko, the main girl/ghost of the series.



Compared to Another, this girl is much more cheerful and playful than Mei Misaki.


Yuuko is also quite flirtatious

Despite the comedy though, there are definitely some serious scenes involving the death of Yuuko and her relationship with the MC. Wonderful animation and theme.

Great OP song which took place after the episode.

Anyways, lovely beginning although I can't seem to decipher the main storyline right now. Guess, I'll be watching further to find that out.

stark700 the pretenses of the both animes are on the opposite ends of the spectrum. It is a misunderstanding that
Tasogare Otome x Amnesia is horror in general, it is more of a tragedy with horror sprinkled in. Another is just a horror flick.

Has someone licensed the series? The first ep was pretty good, it would a shame if it wasn't picked up by someone.



UPDATE
I wrote this before CR's announcement...I'm glad to see it here, even if its on a delayed release schedule.

Bit dull, shows some promise near the end but the attempts at being funny just don't work imo.

Ya...it's more onto the mystery side as I didn't really see the theme of horror in the first episode although the ending seemed somewhat emotional. The comedy threw in was a lot more than I thought so I probably won't be taking this series seriously unless the storyline gets much more serious itself.

Glad CR got this series though.

Dude, that's so low quality. We need a higher quality picture of such a fine woman.

I get the impression that Otogi or whatever her name is, is going to be an over the top comedy version of Agent Scully in the first season of the x-files. Always conveniently too slow, looking the wrong way or whatever, to see anything truly unexplainable.

Yeah Okonogi will be used for comic relief, but unlike Scully she believes or wants to believe that something paranormal is happening.
