Necropheillia never looked so good…

Watched the first season of Corpse Princess, known as Shikibane Hime in Japan, on Funimation Channel last night and I must say it was actually a mildly original story that kept me occupied from episode one to thirteen (after all i stayed up all night unable to go to sleep). If you like the occult and action I recommend it. However there was one thing that sort of bothered me…

[spoilers!]

All of the female leads, aside for one, are dead. Yet, they constantly play up emotional tension between the main character, Ouri, and three different dead girls. While they rationalize it in a way that makes sense with the setting and characters, it isn’t any less creepy.
