Meh... I'm with Rito, the only reason I'm still watching it is because of Sawa and that pink-haired girl. >_> Otherwise the story is horrible, the acting is horrible and Shin makes me want to give him amnesia. "Hey are you stupid, did you forget..?" Who talks to their girlfriend like that..?

And Tigerluv, I'm not bashing the anime because it's an otome game, I'm bashing it because DBZ by comparison is a work of literary genius. lol

Of course, it COULD get better, it might make sense, the actors might actually get better... the characters might actually get realistic eyes... Orion might actually stop showing up in the episodes! lol

I think this is one of those shows that I love to hate... I'm enjoying my ragging on it, and if I stop watching it I will miss out on the fun... Hey! It's MST3K the anime version. xD

Blank slate mains kinda come with the dating sim territory, but heroine is that and then some. It feels like most of her dialogue is uh, eh or huh.


And Shin has some abusive boyfriend potential there.

But ep 3 and this time round she's finally making notes and being a bit inquisitive. I sort of missed Orion, a lighter more lively personality (more Sawa?) could've lifted this ep. And this one didn't have anything as funny as Ikki and Mr Clubs looking miserable whilst sailing pedal boats.

Hoping for: time loops, serious investigation, something spooky/sinister

I rewatched the second episode the other day and actually liked it. Wonder if I slept through it the first time...

Visually it is very interesting though the harlequin outfits are odd. Card suits, pick her king, reverse harem, could be...

But today's episode was not as good IMO. Something needs to happen. She needs to remember more. I know it's called Amnesia but I need more story... If it is just groundhog's day with no memories every week I don't know if I can keep watching.

I love the eyes though! I think that's my favorite part of the show!

Sawa is cute but ... I think I prefer Mine!



And I love the OP ... edit: ordered Zeotrope!

I find it interesting that anime that are made from otome games generally get a lot of flak....not just on this site but other anime forums as well.

As a fan girl, I have to see more of this anime before I dismiss it. And I'm sure it will be a pleasure either way.


I wanted to give this anime a shot but its just so...meh, not good and not bad, forgettable. I knew going in that this was based on an otome game but I had hoped they would have given the heroine more of a personality. We know why she doesn't have one in the game but this isnt the game! The heroines main words are "eh" and "huh" with the same usual blank stare, she is just too unlikable. It's too bad too cause I love the art and find the poke ball eyes pretty.


Plus looks like they aren't going the only route that I found remotely interesting.

I wasn't picking on anyone in particular. Its just an observation from my experience on other forums too. Just seems like they're not too popular..My own opinion is that crunchyroll is full of bad anime, most being heavy on fan service. .Dusk Maiden is the most recent one, I watched a few ep. before I got tired of the sex starved naked fem ghost .Too bad too cause the story seemed really interesting.
As far as Amnesia, I do need to watch a few more ep. At least it is gorgeous if nothing else.

First, Crunchyroll will license ANYTHING! Everything if they can! And I'm glad they do. They aren't picky and neither am I.

Second, I love, Love, LOVED Dusk Maiden of Amnesia! If not my top favorite for 2012, one of them. Bought the whole series on limited edition import BDs, didn't even wait for the boxed set. Can watch them over and over and over again. The music, visually, the ending... love it! Just goes to show, tastes vary. The fanservice is fun I think and the story is wonderful, it is one of the most touching ghost romance love stories ever made in the anime adaptation (different than the manga). And the extra episode 13 is so much fun!

Back to this Amnesia, there is just enough mystery to keep me coming back.And the visuals are good. And the music is good. I hope it can maintain the balance between WTF (what the ...) and WTFC (who the ... cares) on the mystery part. I know they can't spill all the beans right now but... a bean or two would be nice!

what I find kind of funny in a bad way was what happened in ep 3
Shin gets biggest jerk of the year contender right here folks, injured girlfriend leaves hospital, later tells her to go get him a melon soda when he could have done it himself and let her rest lol that's horrible

and oh hell no, Sawa-chan is best girl

While watching the second episode of Amnesia it came to me that maybe this anime is an attempt to make emo cute, and therefore even more boring than it already is.
I doubt I will be watching this again.

I'm sorry you feel that way about Dusk Maiden, you really are selling that show short. There is so much more to that show than just the tiny bit of fanservice it has (tiny by comparison to the meat of the story). It ranks up there with Mushishi as one of my favourite animes of all time.

...some day I will have to go through the multitude of anime I have watched and make an ultimate "most favourite" list. lol

Oh yeah, I totally agree with Rito about the biggest-jerk award... hes abusive to her, talks to her like shes a halfwit, and then hes so fucking lazy that he tells her to go make him tea...

At least it has a good mysterious title.

If you had watched the 1st episode, skipped episode 2 and 3, I'm pretty sure you wouldn't miss a thing when you go straight to episode 4. It's not terrible, just very slow-moving.

What really cracks me up is the ridiculous over-the-top outfits worn by the characters.

Below, they are seen in their daily clothes, not their restaurant uniforms.


Edit: added character names so I know who the hell everyone's talking about since I couldn't be bothered to learn their names. :D

I really don't have a problem with the reverse harem genre. I'll give most stories a fair shake so long as I find them entertaining. The real problem for me in this case is that this tries to be a mystery but I don't feel any tension. I just get a lot of monologue from the heroine but not much else. There's no risk, no danger, nothing....Tension is an important story telling element, imo. Once you've connected with the main character, tension gets you invested in the story. In this case, I don't feel anything.

Now I'm not saying this is bad. I'm sure plenty of other people will find this entertaining. It just isn't working for me. While I like the artwork, the art isn't enough to get me to come back week after week to watch this. Especially when I've got too much to watch as it is.

Well for me this anime is starting to get really boring.

They have spend 3 episodes just to show her memory is messed up or the reality around her is changing .And her emotions are very dull and muted for someone who lost their memory and is confused .

Usually in cases of amnesia , one may lose their memory but their emotional response stays the same. It feel like she is on antidepressant .I just remembered my patients in the Psych Ward during my training days there who had very muted responses becuase of drugs like lithium lol....
.
And about those outfits, Although I really like the character design and it has very nice cosplay potential but If I dont feel excited about the anime nor the characters , then I dont cosplay for those. Also I do feel the design are out of place

Harems reverse harems doesnt bother me that much as long as the story is interesting and characters are engaging but so far this one doesnt meet that criteria.
