  • A fun mix of supernatural thriller/mystery and slice of life comedy
    Overview:
    This show, for pretty much the entire series, has a pretty light view to it. The main character, Teiichi Niiya, makes contact with a ghost Yuuko Kanoe that some, but not all, people can see. The story follows their general daily life in it's ups and down as well as them trying to get a handle on Yuuko's past and other mysterious things about the school. It's heartfelt and mysterious and ...

  • Short but sweet. A ride that will definitely leave a mark in your quest for good shows.
    What can I say? Solid plot, amazing characters (especially our heroine, Yuuko), and an MC that eventually catches on to the nuances and responds appropriately (takes time though). A recurring theme is the way people see things they want themselves to see, and how terrible it can be as a result. Art work is nice, reminds me immensely of the Bakemonogatari's art in transitioning.

    I especially ...

  • the dusk that lacked horror
    Dusk has Teichi meeting ghost i believe i have seen this somewhere? I figured to give it a try was expecting more some horrors but nah just got some creepy romance. I giving it 2 stars this all i felt it deserves. the characters where somehow ok the problem to be honest was in the plot.

  • Some issues but still pretty great
    Well, my main issue was all the pervy stuff (yes there was a good reason behind it but I still feel it was pushed farther than necessary), it killed like half the show for me, but when they put it on the backburner it got really intense, emotional, and sometimes funny.
    Overall it wasn't that scary but it did have its moments, mostly I consider it to be more of a sad story about a traumatic ...

  • Beautiful introduced me to new world of animation
    This anime is the first one I came across that was not scifi fighting Robotech, Transor Z, or even adventure like one piece or Hunter X Hunter or even a mix like Fairy Tale... no. This anime is beautiful and soulful and is a lovely romance that cannot be - a tragic almost love story hovering on the edge of annihilation - almost 'dont touch me don't even look or I will disappear...' or remember ...

  • Great Story & Characters
    I love paranormal anime, and the description of this anime made me want to watch it. The characters and very well developed and have depth. The story is a good one. It is full of mystery and each episode you feel one step closer to solving it.

    There is a great slice of life appeal to the anime. It helps the story progress and the characters develop. By the end of the anime you feel closer to ...

  • Best Anime Romance in Years
    This is pretty high on my list of favorite anime ever. It has a great blend of Mystery, Romance, Suspense, and just being plain cool. If any of that piques your interest, you should definitely watch this one. I binge watched all 12 episodes....couldn't help it.

  • One of my favorite romance stories ever
    Not only is Dusk Maiden of Amnesia one of my favorite romance anime, but one of my favorite anime in general. One thing this series does best is create an incredible atmosphere that pulls you in. The colors and scenery really create a mood that's haunting and melancholy; with occasional dabs of life which make it eerie but enjoyable at the same time. The majority of the characters aren't explored ...

  • A sweet anime with a slight touch of suspense.
    One of the most romantic animes I have ever seen. A unique concept, too, with a little bit of "realism." It was dramatic, funny, sad, cute, charming, and a little scary at the same time. I loved this and it is definitely worth watching through the whole series.
