Kawaii Yuuko at her finest.
Hello everyone! I’m okthxbaii and I will be assisting mdz by blogging Tasogare Otome X Amnesia. I look forward for you all to read my posts!
On-going Thoughts: Episode
The episode opens up with a very brief narration of the school. The opening then starts. Might I just add how fucking beautiful Yuuko looks in this opening and the sequence itself is pretty brilliantly crafted. The episode continues with Teiichi Niiya roaming the halls of his new school. From reading the manga, I feel this episode should have been before the first episode, since this is the introduction to everything.
Yuuko suddenly appears before our protagonist, scaring the shit out of him. Teeichi constantly remembers the rumors he heard and realizes Yuuko is the ghost that the rumors mentioned. After Teiichi has a few handfuls of breasts, Yuuko explains she has died, but has amnesia and doesn’t remember why she died. Yuuko then shows Teiichi the uniform she wore before she died, revealing her magnificent, but cut off breasts.
Yuuko reveals to us that the land the school was built on was haunted and to ward off any spirits, she was trapped and sacrificed in the old school building. Caught in the moment, Teiichi finds Yuuko’s body behind a mirror. Yuuko melts down after realizing he’s seen her corpse, though she was completely fine with him viewing her tits.
I really appreciate these kawaii scenes of Yuuko, though I realize everyone is going to rage over the fact that this show is lacking a plot. Yuuko then decides to establish a club, The Paranormal Investigations Club. Teiichi decides he wants to help Yuuko recover her memory of how she died, so he begins researching the school. Another main character is introduced as she comes storming into the room asking for help, Okonogi Momoe.
Momoe reveals to us that she tried an old ritual called “hide the demon.” In this game, someone puts the name of someone on a stuffed animal and tells them they want to play. The person counts to ten, and stabs the stuffed animal. Then, it is time for the individual to hide and the only way to end the game is to tell the doll that the game is over. The doll ultimately disappeared, so now Momoe seems to think that she will be pursued by Yuuko (who’s name she wrote on the doll) for life. Yuuko sends Momoe off with a charm, and it is revealed that Yuuko took the doll herself.
The writers then attempt to make this show serious by carring out ghostbusting. Teiichi finds Momoe and they run from a disguised Yuuko to put the case to rest and satisfy Momoe.
Yuuko’s boobs then jiggle alot The case is solved and it cuts to the next day. Momoe appears again and thanks Teiichi for helping her, and we are left with a jealous Yuuko.
On-going Thoughts: Ending
Not entirely impressed, but not displeased either. For some reason, the sky at the end of the sequence really captures my attention. Anyway the ending is called Calendrier and it is by Aki Okui.
On-going Thoughts: Concluding Thoughts
The plot of this show is ultimately slowly turning into a train wreck just like I assumed it would be. Honestly, I particularly could give a fuck less as long as Yuuko looks adorable each and every week. Very pleased with the seiyuu line up for this show and very impressed with their abilities. I love how they brought Momoe to life and I actually prefer her a bit more in the anime so far than I do in the manga. The graphics are pretty top notch in my own opinion. So in the end, what have we learned from this episode? The sky looks pretty and Yuuko is adorable as fuck.
