A good first episode. I liked the way they didn’t show Yuuko until the second half of the episode, and we just got to see Okonogi’s reactions. I really like the voice actor they picked for her, by the way. Exactly as I imagined her sounding.
I’ve read the manga for this (yes… it seems like I read a lot of manga, but I don’t, just everything I read seems to be getting animated this season) and to be honest, it’s not all that great. So I don’t have very high expectations for this show. It’s basically a harem where one member is a ghost. There’s some mystery, but it’s just been dragging on and and on forever and isn’t all that interesting either.
On the bright side, they’ve started the anime pretty far into the middle of the manga, so hopefully it will feel like it’s going by faster.
And this was a very solid start. But I don’t see how it’s going to stay this interesting throughout given the source material. They used a trick this episode, which worked out great, but it’s not one they can keep milking.
