「幽霊乙女」 (Yuurei Otome)
A ghost with amnesia for president? I want to join this club!
Sorry for the delay, but putting together the full-length shots for this post took more time than I had expected. But now I’m done!
Alright, one of the shows I was looking forward to the most is finally here – Tasogare Otome x Amnesia. It’s the first episode, so I thought I’d give you an introduction. If you want to skip the summary, just scroll past the box below.
I’ve always had a thing for ghost related anime shows. Since Ghost Hunt, I’ve been missing the “paranormal investigation” theme in anime. When I decided to help the other writers with the preview post, I stumbled across Tasogare Otome x Amnesia. The artwork seemed decent, the plot looked promising, but what caught my attention more than anything was the director of this show – Oonuma Shin. I absolutely loved Ef: A Fairy Tale of the Two (two series directed by him), so I expected this to be good.
This first episode served as a good introduction, and I’m very happy with it. The artwork is prettier than what I had imagined, the animation is really good, and the characters are likeable. I may not know very much about Yuuko yet, but I do know that she is a great character, and I love her already!
Besides the visuals in the show, the sound is promising too. I don’t have much to say about the cast, but I think they’re very fitting, and they’ve brought out the best of their corresponding characters.
As for the music in this show – I’m not very familiar with the people behind the music, but I do know that the composers for this show were behind the music in Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu, a show almost all anime fans are familiar with. From what I heard in this episode, the soundtrack was very nice, and pleasant to my ears. It’s not very eerie or creepy like, for an example, the soundtrack in Another. But on the other hand, this isn’t supposed to be “creepy” as far as I can tell, so, I have no complaints on the soundtrack for now.
Before I finish my post, I thought I’d mention the opening song that was used at the end of this episode. It’s performed by Suzuki Konomi, who is only 15 years old, and also the 5th Anison Grand Prix Winner. The song is called “CHOIR JAIL”, which also happens to be the title of the single it comes from – Suzuki Konomi’s debut single. I like this song very much, and thanks to my friend “Encoder-chan” (she is the best, and will be encoding all my videos for my posts), you can listen to it, and hopefully, you’ll like it too!
With that being said, I feel pretty content with this post, and all I can say is – Sunday friggin where?
