Horror seems to be the theme this month. So many of this season’s anime seem to draw from it, from Occult Academy to High School of the Dead, thus the manga this month should fit the theme as well. Presenting 黄昏乙女×アムネジア or Tasogare Otome x Amnesia is a series done by a artist going by the name Maybe(Interesting naming choice. :P). Serialized by Square Enix, it proves to be a good read indeed.

Overview: Niiya Teiichi, a freshman is able to see ghosts. More specially, that of a young woman,who, by some strange occurrence, was left to die alone in the former building of the Academy for Sincere Teachings. Now they both seek to find out the reasoning behind her death, and what could have caused it.

Art: I really like this artist sense of style. There is a huge contrast in his work, which I find plays to his forte. Portrayal of the grim and dark he accomplishes with ease. As well as being able to still throw in occasional ecchi scenes for comic relief. Well, seeing is believing:

With contrast to this:

Overall: The art for this work is really good. The character designs are not really too shonen or shojou. The amount of realism is easily balanced off as well,  combining school life with the supernatural.
