Occult Academy (2010)

Occult Academy

Waldstein Academy was devoted to paranormal studies, thus often nicknamed as the Occult Academy. the anime started out with Maya returning to the academy to attend the funeral of her father, the principal. Fumiaki was a time agent sent from the future to prevent the apocalypse from happening. the prediction stated that the school will be the center. Maya was forced to team up with Fumiaki in search of the key that will trigger the apocalypse.

from its poster n plot, i expected a gothic n dark anime. though i was slightly disappointed to find it partial comedy, i wasn't completely let down by the anime. there weren't exactly enough depths as i would love it to be, but it wasn't completely lame either. despite her attitude problem, Maya was easy to love. her facial expressions showed everything from her annoyance to her embarrassment, made her Tsundere (ツンデレ) character absolutely fun to watch. however, Fumiaki remained irritating from the very beginning until the end. what i couldn't quite fathom, was why did the future send forth such a useless man to fend them off apocalypse? did they expect miracle or just someone to take their place in death n worth sacrificing if anything went wrong? the group that later gathered n became Maya's sidekicks were absolutely fascinating to watch, in fact they lighten up the whole series by making the fights against supernatural something natural to do!
