I happened to discover this book at work and have been meaning to look up. It sounds interesting.

I really like the manga, but this kind of stuff tends to not work as well in anime form, at least for me. Still looking forward to it.

Like the character designs, so I am interested to see how they handle this. Comedy-horror can be done successfully in anime (see Dusk Maiden of Amnesia), but it requires a very delicate balancing act.

Me: I hope they downplay some of the random fanservice stuff from the start of the manga
Me after seeing the trailer: Guess not

Seeing it's animated by Passione makes sense...

Well, anyway, it's a really fun manga so I'm happy. The key visual does the horror well so hopefully everything'll be as creepy as it was in the manga!

The trailer looked good and the plot sound interesting. I like the friend she was with.

How is this series a comedy? It has a few lighter moments to keep it from being completely overwhelming, but I would not call it a comedy by any stretch of the imagination.
