As strange as it may sound, the fanservice actually has a place in the overall story that it a little more serious than just fanservice in of itself.

Also ... after I watched the first ep and found it interesting but curious, I decided to go to the manga source and check it out. And I liked it quite a bit. More than that - it put a lot that is going on into perspective.

Now maybe it could be argued that it is a strike against a show that the manga had to be read to have someone appreciate it, but I felt it was worth it. So, if you are interested you (and any other viewers who find themselves unsure about some parts of the series and liking other parts) might take a look at the manga ... of course with the awareness that spoiler material and the rest would be thrown at you.

BTW, I found myself enjoying the ED this time around ... interesting but odd.

It’s fine if you don't like Yuuko and/or how the anime presents itself since we all have our own preferences and tastes. As long you don’t openly badmouth the series or provide unconstructive criticism like some here have done I’ll respect your choice and opinion. As for the boob grabbing jokes, I understand it gets old very quickly. But we won’t see much of that anymore from here on from what I remember in the manga.

The case or cases where it does come up may not even be covered by the anime, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Pfft, it's much more provocative when the girl intentionally presses her assets unto the boy anyway...Let it build up slowly.

I'm actually most amused by the easily excited girl that can't see Yuuko. She's my favorite character, and I could care less about Yuuko.

I can't wait for the plot twist and the connection between Yuko and the blue haired girl. I believe both have the same last name.

I finally got to watching the first 2 episodes. This series does have a Shaft feel to it, but a little more coherent. It is still too early in the series to figure out what exactly the goal of the series is. I'm sure there will be horror elements, but the comedy elements have been fine.

I usually try not to make a decision on a series until after the 5th episode. So far, it does show promise. I'm sure the first few episodes will be about character introduction.

Do we even know how old Yuuko is yet?

I LOL at how easy it is for Teichi to accept that Yuuko is a ghost.

There's 7 mysteries in total (as mentioned in the show already) 6 after ep 2 so they would have to use the remaining 10 ep to finish it + the mystery behind Yuko so it could work but it might feel a little rush. :\
Alot of the anime lately has been pretty short....

A ghost like Yuuko is to die for. Maybe he can kill himself then they can be together forever.


Half-kidding.

Oh dear, and this is only images from 2 episodes... What's going to happen with the other 10...?

....Spontaneous Implosion comes to mind...

Caught up with the second episode: Oh the irony of calling Teiichi a pervert. I certainly enjoyed it though.

Yeah, the way the story is going, the comparisons to the director's previous work Natsu no Arachi and some of the investigating of Gosick are better comparisons than Another. Parts of the opening had a very SHAFT feel to them, this being SILVER LINK and since the director is one of those who "invented" the SHAFT style, this is not a surprise.

LOL at the buildup to Yuuko saying "it's so embarrassing". I do like that she is rather playful and seems to almost encourage the accidental touching of her breasts that seems to happen regularly. I guess since Teiichi is the MC, he has to be one of those that gets flustered at anything sexual. I guess Yuuko is going to have a lot of fun teasing him.

Interesting how this particular hide-and-seek game is like hypnosis. Yeah, the power of suggestion can be pretty powerful. The split screens and how Teiichi "exorcises" was very amusing.

The OP is pretty good, but I love the ED. That is one of the best EDs that I have heard this season.
