Seems pretty creepy, and kinda cool so far.
Quote:

Kouichi Sakakibara moves in with his grandparents in Yomiyama due to his father's job, but is soon hospitalized with a collapsed lung. When he joins the 9th grade's class 3 at Yomiyama North Middle School a month late, he is drawn to a girl with an eyepatch, Mei Misaki, whom he had coincidentally met in the hospital. Her mysterious air intrigues him, but though his classmates give him a warm welcome, none of them seem willing to acknowledge her...


It was unsurprisingly difficult to find the opening credits for a show called "Another".

I remember reading the first few chapters of the manga before. Pretty sure the girl is dead, as it says so right in the manga description Smiley: tongue. I'll need to re-read it, as I can't remember much about it.

They pretty much do everything short of coming right out and saying so in the first episode.

F'in' A I'm slow today. I downloaded this a couple days ago and haven't watched it yet. Now I have incentive to do so. And to read the manga, since it seems pretty short.

That OP sounds very much like the Rozen Maiden OPs. I assume it's the same singer?

Oh, I misremembered. Just caught up with all the chapters I could find (only 10 are out). It seems like Misaki Mei is NOT the ghost; one of the other students is, but no one knows it. The class picks a "non-existent person" every year to take the place of the ghost and stop the curse. Misaki Mei was that person, but because the main character didn't know about it, he talks to her, which restarts the curse, which will ultimately kill 16 people.

Kinda hard to understand; the translations on the ones I read weren't that great.

Yea, that's Ali Project, same group- they've got a very distinctive sound to all their music.

Ha ha. My first thought when the song started was: This is Ali Project, isn't it?

Thanks, I could not remember their name. I enjoy them in small doses.

All their stuff sounds exactly the same. I could play that music over the Avenger OP and no one would know the difference.

I'm not so sure I agree with that.
