it's a story of a woman ghost , so disappearing or reapparing after a while it's not that different...i mean, why (in general) the ghost must disappear? just because it's a ghost? well, it's something 'not real' so both paths are the same. it's comic but sad too 8/10

This series was such a let down for me. I found it quite enjoyable almost all the way through. The opening and ending themes really conveyed the mood of the show (when it got serious, at least) and the art style was pretty nice too. I really was a fan of all those beautiful scenes being lit by the sunset etc. I also really liked the eventual climax with Yuuko finding her lost memories and until literally 5 minutes before the end of the last episode, I was ready to rate this an 8 or 9 as a very good series. The ending was all set to be bittersweet and actually quite beautiful...

But then, with literally a few minutes to go, the series does a 180. She didn't actually disappear, all that stuff that just happened meant nothing, now back to the messing around. It's not that I thought the show had to end with Yuuko disappearing, but the series itself was going in that direction and made what was actually very moving and emotional "final" scene... only to then chicken out, bring her back and return the "status quo" for the presumably inevitable series 2. Which I will not be watching.

Great show, but the end was a bit of a cop out.
