When watching this anime, remember two things. First this is adapted from Rumiko Takahashi's Rumik world manga's which she wrote in the early eights. These were series of short stories which spring boarded her career into the place it is now. So the story is a little weak, and somewhat transparent, and to some extent a little rushed, but is worth the watch just to get an idea of where show's like Inu Yasha came from. The second is that ist was animated in the eighties, so the animation isn't the best, it carries a low production value feel about, which is common in the read more

Story (6/10):
Classic yandere with a bit of a paranormal twist. It was an interesting idea, but I felt that the introduction of ghosts raised a lot more questions than it answered. The ghosts were obviously introduced in order to explain Azusa's clearly psychotic behavior, but were given no explanation themselves. I would have at least liked a small back story showing how Azusa came to be posessed. Surely she wasn't always that way, or was she? We had an interesting flashback to childhood, but it isn't clear whether the posession began then, or if it did, why it begin then?
