You obviously ignored like 95% of the PV since you were fixated on Yuuko's oppai. Your reason for hating the anime is flawed if you only saw this anime as nothing but fan service. TOxA isn't a glorified boob parade like Queen's Blade.

I dunno, like what bumbayker said, there's no sign that this is as horror as Ghost Hunt or Another. This kind of drop reminds me of people dropping Gosick because it's not mystery enough.

This is from the most recent translated manga chapter (No spoilers, it's about the anime and I found fun)

The art for that was a bit different than usual, perhaps on purpose since the rest of the chapter looked basically the same as always.

Anyone else think the dialogue here has a bit of a Nisio feel to it?

A number of times, I found myself thinking: "Is that you, Senjougahara?"

Yeah, I was hoping it was just me, and I'd get over it. This is a real problem.

But those were bad anime, why would mimicking them do any better?

bumbayker is right. This anime isn't just focused on ecchiness, it's simply a slice of life mystery show filled with some horror and the ecchiness isn't essential to the plot. Read the manga and listen what bumbayker said.

Well with the whole advertisement: horror, mystery, ghosts, investigation... I really expected something more.

At this point it looks like a silly comedy =/
And even that lacks.

The show was never intended as a hardcore horror.
If you read the manga you can tell that it's not that serious. Most of the time it's more slice of life with some horror element throw in.

I love the OP, but having the character's mouth moving as if she is singing it doesn't look right to me.

The OP is sung by 15-year-old Suzuki Konomi, who won last fall's Animax National Anisong Grand Prize. She is quite a talent, as shown in this video, which shows her progress through the contest:



She has been performing since she was six, as the video shows.

The title of the OP may be strange ("Choir Jail") but it just sounds perfect to me as an anime theme: instantly memorable, with a clear hook.

Looking at Konomi videos for this post made me so enthusiastic that I made a blog post about her, too, with another video.

Wow, sung by a 15 year-old...? I thought it was like a 20 year-old singing that one. She sounds extremely polished, kudos to her for reaching such a level at such a young age. I plan on keeping up with her from time to time - she's sure to have an even greater career after this.

i think they got the epi mixed up, epi 2 should have been epi 1
that way it would have made more sense


edit: spelling

I think they did it on purpose.
first get audience engaged and curious as to what is happening and then going flashback mode to answer few questions.

They are not the first to do it. The most obvious show would be Ga-Rei Zero.

Speaking of OPs...looks like the full version is already out on YT lol. It sounds like a rip, though. But w/e.

Yeah. it sounded like a rip but I won't complain since I finally got to listen to the entire song. It will probably be pulled down sooner or later due to copyrighting.

I think it's a rip from the live performance, which you can see a video of in my blog post.

I can't get enough of Yuuko's voice, it's perfectly fit her character.
