These things just keep coming. I swear, every day I check my usual anime place and there’s a new series. I’m up to about seven, not counting this one.
So yeah, I really can’t say too much about this. The premise is interesting, what with an amnesiac ghost being the president of a paranormal investigation club. The art is pretty good, characters are likeable (although I could do without Niiya), but something seems off. It’s like the series doesn’t know what it wants to be.
You’ve got comedy, which would be pretty nice as far as I’m concerned, in the beginning. At first, it looks like a wacky not-quite-slapstick series with a paranormal bent. But then you see the beginning again and actually see Yuuko, the aforementioned ghost. It’s definitely more amusing this time around because of how she’s just screwing around. Then we get some pseudo-romance nonsense with our all-too-stereotypical protagonist ‘accidentally’ feeling up the ghost girl, which is accompanied with ‘artsy’ shots and coloration. Then it dips into drama, revealing that Yuuko is amnesiac and… Well, some other stuff I won’t spoil. Then it goes back to comedy/Yuuko screwing around.
It’s a pretty good show so far, but I never thought I’d watch something that seems like it’s going through some identity crisis. I’ll be sticking around to find out if this gets solved in the next few episodes, but… Man, I was really hoping for a comedy here. Or at least something that did away with the romance.
