tasogare [ for short ] provides quite an interesting glimpse into the 'daily life' of a ghost, one who has been haunting its place of death for many centuries uncounted. while most of us were already accustomed with the myth of ghosts being mischievous, malign entities bent on inflicting curse or trauma towards the still living, yuuko-san - the resident ghost of tasogare - otherwise is just an amnesiac lady ghost who is seemingly bored and lonely [?] for being around quite too long. not to mention she's quite resourceful with pranks that would later lead into the creation of several urban legends within the very school ground.
moving on, the overall presentation aspect of the series were quite shaky at times, but mostly stick on par to what silver link would usually offer nevertheless. tasogare's art direction for the most part of it were dark and melancholic, well befitting of the overall mood, feel and atmosphere of the story - and further complemented by its character designs which well suited the air and nature of the series best. on a slightly unrelated note, yuuko-san's design without fail has reminded me of yomi-neesama of ga-rei fame - the more reason for me to fall in love with her yes sir yes.
