Tasogare Otome x Amnesia
Aired: Apr 9, 2012 to ?
Producers: Silver Link
Genres: Mystery, Horror, Romance
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.
From what I have heard and read about the series, this really could be an interesting show. I looked at a few manga pictures and have to say that I'm even more excited now, this definitely could be one of my favs of the season if executed well.

Quite interesting, I don't know. After watching Another, I'm more interested to explore this kind of anime related to mystery and a bit psychological. What about the staff and cast?
edit: I've just noticed the first episode is already out. I will give it a try then. ^^

I have seen the first episode. Nothing much so far, just mainly introduction. Art is quite good; I don't like how Niiya looks like but the girls are okay. Soundtrack, not so much, rather strange in my ears. Hopefully by next episodes we can explore more the awesomeness of this series. ^^

Looks like this series didn't really give strong impression, eh?
Well, I'm following until episode 5 so far. Nothing much really, a bit humor here and there but not too much and very enjoyable. In fact I think there are more ecchi scenes that serious ones, looks almost like a fan-service only. I'm curious to know who Yuuko-san is, but I can probably just skip right to the last episode that way then. >__<
