Tasogare Otome x Amnesia
The story takes place in Seikyou Private School. A facility that consists of multiple buildings that connect together to accommodate both junior and senior high school students. Sixty years of ongoing renovations and expansions have meant most of the old inner structures have been sealed and abandoned. Classrooms turned into storage rooms, staircases no longer in use, hallways like dark alleys. With the existence of such a maze-like building, it is only natural that rumours of the paranormal would appear.
One day first-year middle school student Niiya Teiichi gets lost in this maze and by chance arrives at an old storage room. This is where he meets Kanoe Yuuko, a mysterious girl with raven black, long silky hair and a tall and slender figure, who introduces herself as the ghost of the old school building. For some unexplainable reason Niiya is the only one able to see this spirit and she herself does not have any recollection of the reasons or time of her death, nor any lingering feelings about life itself. Curious about the circumstances of her death the two create a paranormal investigation club and seek to find out the truth about it and the many other mysteries surrounding the school.

Well, the dual viewpoint of the first episode is amusing at least. Dunno if the ghost gags will stay funny but I guess the show is worth a shot.
Quite enjoyed this. I definitely want to watch the next eipsode. Great for a laugh & has a very unique view-point on how to portray events to the audience. Has enough mystery to make you want to find out more. Definitely recommend it.
Great premise with some awesome humor and the promise of darker things to come.
Hilarious double take of same scene... without and with Yuuko. An awesome way of building the fact one out three can't see Yuuko. The darker mystery looms as the group has to deal with lecherous Yuuko. Not what I expected but pleasantly enjoyed the show.
charming & entertaining series. i reccommend it.
So this high school has a Detective Club. The club president is a girl; she's mischievous, lecherous and cute, and best of all, she's a ghost. You've got to love the irony, aspecially since the point of view character for the first half of the episode is the only club member who can't see the president. No idea if that trick will be repeated, but this is a great pilot.
I thouhgt it was very good for a cliche series. I give it a 6.5 out of 10.
Interesting if somewhat confusing. Looks like a series that would get it hooks into me eventually. 6/10
though it was a bit cliche, it was a funny cliche and has good visuals, especially with the "exorcism" scene!
