Review:

Dusk Maiden of Amnesia is an anime that I had passed on during its airing because of a few images I had seen and thought “oh god, another boob anime” so I crossed it off the list and moved onto something else and I really wish I hadn’t. The one great thing about not watching it during it original airing is that I got to watch all the episodes in one run without any cliff hangers. Dusk Maiden of Amnesia is such a sweet and innocent love story and at time moved me close to tears. Very few shows have made me this emotional and care for the characters the way Dusk Maiden did.

The whole story was satisfyingly well done and I’m hoping for a second season not because of loose ends but because I really like all the characters and would have loved to see what a 24 episode run would have been. The animation is good and builds great mystery for the supernatural elements of the story. The relationships that the characters have and the story drive this show and make it a hit in my book. I wish more anime romances where like Dusk Maiden of Amnesia, hell just more anime honestly. OtakuStew.net gives Dusk Maiden of Amnesia…

Four out of Five Stars...
I loved this show and I wish there was more anime like this, if you’re a fan of romance and the supernatural then this show is for you!
