    Lastly, here’s an overview of Ghostpia Season One, via our previous coverage:

    ‘ghostpia’ is a unique ghost story that follows Sayoko, a forgetful ghost struggling to recall her past and her purpose. With a unique and nostalgic art style, with a linear story, ‘ghostpia is full of the mysteries in Sayoko’s forgotten memories.​

    • Linear Narrative – ‘ghostpia’ is designed for you to sit back and sink into the storyline, enjoying it like a movie 
    • Dark Humour – with death pointless in the face of unending resurrection, any annoying character can get thrown out of a window if they push the girls just a little too far
    • Unexpected Twists – despite ghostpia’s gentle music and soft aesthetic, the story is shockingly brutal; even with static artwork, perspectives shift rapidly, unfolding dramatic truths one after another
    • Eclectic Characters – Sayoko and her friends are all strange and different, each unique in their own weird way, yet somehow perfect for each other
    • Soft nostalgia-inspired illustrations – the hand-drawn style of art brings to life the soft, isolated atmosphere of the snowy town, designed to make you feel lost in nostalgia
    • Coming West for the First Time – Originally released on mobile and web browsers only in Japan, now with new music, higher resolution illustrations and more complex animations
