Tasogare Otome x Amnesia: A Refreshing Mix

Currently finished: Episode 5

While some of you may consider this to be just trolling around in a schizophrenic fashion, personally, I think this mix and blend of horror and comedy with seamless transitions is quite refreshing. Frankly, I don't think I've seen a good horror genre anime that is also a good comedy at the same time. If anybody know any, please do recommend, as I'd like to explore this rare genre a bit more.

One problem, as  I see it right now, is what this series is trying to achieve. While everything is amusing, I'm not sure where it's heading. Maybe it's still just too early and they're still in the character development stage, but I can't seem to recognize any grand plot it's trying to push. The few potential ones I can think of, are more or less voided in the first three episodes. As it is right now, it's just wandering around aimlessly. Consider this is only a short season anime, they'd need to develop some sort of plot soon, otherwise it'd feel extremely rushed towards the end or end up being incomplete.

Thank you for the flattering comments :-)

I have to say I'm no where near a good writer, my friends who read my blog are constantly picking out grammar errors and sentences that just plain don't make sense where I have to go back and fix. I'm surprised that people that follow my blog haven't already got sick and tired of them and stopped reading. ^_^
