"A ghost could be wandering the halls of this school as I speak!"
-No sh** Sherlock.
TL;DR: Interesting art style (not in a bad way). Other than the somewhat predictable sub-plots in the mystery department and a bit of excessive comedy, a great horror/mystery + romance that doesn't mind going very dark very quickly. Special episode was definitely worth the watch as well.
After OreImo let's go back to something more normal, shall we?
Tasogare Otome x Amnesia
15 y.o. ghost who died 60 years ago seduces and haunts 14 y.o. boy
Sooooo technically one is 75 and the other one is 14. I thought I said more normal?
Tasogare Otome x Amnesia, or "Dusk Maiden of Amnesia" in English, revolves around a private academy that was built on top of a shrine. Of course, this results in a lot of ghost stories within the walls of the school, some of which are just pure fabrication, while others, as we learn in the anime, are undoubtedly true.
fanservice *cough*) is quite enough to act as a breather between the dark plotlines. [Also I hate Momoe for forcing herself as a romance rival when she clearly doesn't have a chance. I guess in the romance genre there's always some sort competition, but can't you make an exception sometimes?]
hand-grabs-certain-female-body-part *ahem* by Teiichi. This was one of the few moments I went "What. In. The. World.". I could only speculate what could be done to resolve that scene without said weird grabbing action, but surely anything else would be better than that right? [Dear writers: I have a lot of questions about that scene. Where in the world do you get so many fallen leaves on the roof of a fairly high building? Also, did you really think that the heart is under the right breast? Seriously?]

Overall the show was a good horror/mystery/romance. Even though the mystery was a tad bit predictable and the romance is slightly cliche-ish, I enjoyed my time watching (and re-watching for writing this post) this anime. I would personally add the comedy genre to the show, since there's seems to be a fair bit of it, but it's not a full out rom-com so I can understand why they didn't include that.
