I think the fangirls cutting her hair is the premonition for Ikki's route. Perhaps the big, clear moon is a death she's yet to experience? But I don't think she was looking at it through water, and it certainly seemed like the view she might have from the hospital roof (except for Ukyo standing in front of it I guess). But you know - you really shouldn't pose such questions to a nit-picker - I shall now have to go and rewatch too darn much of the series, and as hpulley says, it's not really a show that necessarily deserves rewatching :s. What I find strange is that technically she's still totally suffering from amnesia - all her visions have been within the 4 days she's been reliving - has an interaction led her to actually have a flashback even once - say to a childhood memory with Shin and Toma? (episode 10 doesn't count IMO, as it was just an animation of the words written in the diary - it didn't seem like she was physically reliving the memories).

Argh!! Kent's bad end?? That is indeed salt in the wound! Fitzgerald I think you need to tell all us Kent fans what the good ends are in his route because it seems unlikely we'll see him again now :(.


Kent had the least drama on his route and it's mostly him being adorable and learning to be a proper boyfriend.

It got better with episode 10...that's an accomplishment

also just to say, when I first watched Amnesia whenever it first premiered, I seriously thought it had something to do with Alice and Wonderland (probably had something to do with all the card suits - diamonds, spades, clubs, hearts) and would be a more fantasy based show lol

They have a magical girl drama that deals with Alice in Wonderland and is quite fantasy-based: Kagihime Monogatari http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=6027 It's nothing groundbreaking, but I enjoyed the show nonetheless.

Another anime that is fantasy-based and Alice in Wonderland based is Pandora Hearts!! Also on Crunchyroll - great show but the ending is disappointing.

Sweetness, thank you! Although now that makes me curious - how does a route switch from a 'good' to 'bad' end..?



Can't wait, can't wait!! Really, since the last episode the whole thing really has taken off and now there's only 2 to go! It almost seems a shame.

On the subject of the 'visions' in Episode 1 and 2, my interpretations are:



So I went back and watched them again and yup - that's all of them. Gommen Suikojay - you were right about the moon being seen through water. I wonder why, then, we only see Ikki's bad end?

I realised that Amnesia is the sort of show it's worth marathon-wathcing. You see so many more of the connections. Like in those first 2 eps evil Ukyo features quite prominently and you're really sitting there going "whaaaat??". And also how her personality changes - like how at first she's totally




Yes, it is quite heart-wrenching the constant fear that she'll be afraid of him. So now my guess is
For what it's worth - rewatching the series from the beginning has made me appreciate Orion all the more (not that I was ever a hater!), the stuff he comes up with definitely provides comic relief in what would otherwise be a very bland 'dialogue' where the heroine says nothing.

There is actually another thing that bothers me, and that's how the heroine was able to transfer from Kento's route to Tomas route. I mean, she didn't really die right? I just re-watched the end scene of Kento's route and the only thing that seems to happen is a guy bumps into her! I mean does she die from merely a bump??? Or is it suppose to be assumed that after she gets bumped, she staggers/falls and get hits by a car or something? Just seems strange to me that in all the other routes, she appears to get killed.

Just goes to show everything about the rendering of Kento's route sucked - it was really too short-lived and they didn't even have the grace to give him a proper ending - I think lots of us were going 'what the heck??' when Toma grabs her hand at the end. We were all expecting at least one more episode! You're probably right though - it seems fairly safe to assume she got run over after staggering - she does seem to manage to find danger where one would think none existed! Like in the last episode when she goes and stands on the tram track to retrieve her hat - I was like 'Noooo don't do it!! Can you not learn from experience!!'.

Yup, that's a great point. I think after the series finishes, I may re-watch some of the eps if there are some things that I still don't quite understand.

Lol - I was only joking about Orion really - he's probably just been brought in from the game as an amusing handle - I am trying to fit him in to the anime 'drama' in jest. However if Ukyo really did summon him he might not have done so willingly, it may have just been a side-effect of whatever he did to alter the original reality.


Another thing that I find troubling is:

Seems plucked straight out of the game - like a waiting room scene where you briefly see everyone before going on to get to know them better. Maybe the original fracture in reality though? Like swirling around in time before she settles into any reality.

Let's see, my impressions of ep 11...



I still think they have a lot of explaining to do in the last ep, and hopefully they will be able to do that. I will say that I'm glad I stuck with the show, and trying to solve the mysteries behind what's been going on, with and around the heroine, with what evidences and hints we've been given, has been quite fun!

Heroine is a walking mind break

I'm surprised she just doesn't accept death.
