    1st Impressions Mean Everything
    Dusk Maiden of Amnesia certainly made its ability to tear down the genre barrier very clear on its first episode. While it is for the most part a supernatural series, the comedy, slice-of-life style drama, and subtly apparent horror drive the view to want to watch the rest of the series.

    I can't get much into the story without spoilers, so I'll keep them as minor as possible. We follow ...

    Beautiful story with a surprising twist
    I came into this anime blind I was just checking off a list of anime I haven't seen and I thought well why not? So, I started on the first episode and from there I was hooked. The artwork was simply beautiful so was the dubbing both the english and the japanese were in sinc with one another. It was the sort of anime I didn't expect to like from the get go but I did and I highly recommend it.

    A dark yet romantic tale that had more potential.
    The Full Review:

    Those nice folks at Silver Link are back with a dark Anime about a ghost trying to find her past. Along with her is a competent Main Guy, a tough on the outside-nice on the inside Chick, and another girl who is too obsessed with the supernatural... and too scared. The characters in this story are fairly interesting and play off each other nicely enough, but Yuuko is by ...

    I wept and loved it.
    This is the most poignant love story I've seen, anime or not. How they mixed romance, humor, horror, & supernatural all together into a deeply warm, funny, and touching story is amazing. The end is deeply moving: sad, joyful, and fulfilling. I wept and loved it.

    There are parts and themes that can be disturbing, but it just becomes the groundwork for deeper loving connection. Like I said, it's ...

    Maiden of Exhaltation!
    Dusk Maiden of Amnesia is a love story with both supernatural and harem overtones. Yuuko is a ghost haunted by an actual incarnation of her past, and loves Teiichi, who is trying to help her. Yuuko's great-niece is also interested in Teiichi, but repeatedly defends the affections of her grandmother's dead sister over her own interests. Characters and their ...

    Magnificent Piece of Storytelling
    I am cautious when selecting stories to watch or read, because I am afraid of what I call "the emotional cheat." The emotional cheat is where an author mishandles his/her omnipotence over a story. To elaborate: when writing, there are two rules a writer must follow (actually there's only one, but the first is just an emphasis on a particular part of the second): personalities of characters must ...

    A show that wont make you feel like there should be more
    I have watched a lot of anime shows and i have to say this is one of my favorite. Never before have I rode the feelsbus as much as i did watching this. Great writing (although some cliched moments) and a great ending. All the characters were likeable which is something i dont see often. If you have any doubts, watch the first episode and you will be hooked.

    Not sure the show knows what it wants to be
    I try to write non-spoiler, non-specific reviews but this show makes it tough. Let me start by saying, I enjoyed it and I binged watched the entire thing in however long that takes. Saying that, obviously it kept my interest. For you the reader, that interest may wane depending on how you are coming into this. I'll try to be careful in the spoiler below.

    A poignant love story between a boy and a dead girl
    I don't usually write reviews, but I felt compelled to share this after finishing the series. Dusk Maiden of Amnesia is best described as a poignant love story between a boy and a ghost, sprinkled liberally with comedy and horror elements. I didn't know horror, comedy and romance could mingle coherently together, but this anime does it spectacularly well.

    Admittedly, the show does not have high ...
