January 2008 New Anime: Shigofumi

Genres: Supernatural / suspense
I've watched: 1 episode
Art style: Round corner / Slightly simplified / Slightly low contrast

Audience: People like supernatural suspense low action series involve death

Summary: The straight translation of the title, "Shigofumi", means "After Death Mail". It talk about a mailman (in this case, a "mailgirl")that carries mail for people that just died.

Richard's rating (of 5) - first impression: 3.75 - Interesting but needs improvement

Personal comments: The setup reminds me of Jigoku Shoujo (a.k.a. Hell Girl). Episode one ended in a cliffhanger, but I have a feeling it's going to be like Jigoku Shoujo, where the whole seires are made of many unrelated short stories. Episode one had some really interesting last minute twists in plot. If they keep doing that, I think it has potential to be an excellent series.
