Amnesia. First Thoughts

Amnesia becomes the second of the chosen titles I've selected to begin the start of this new year.

It's difficult for me to make a simple analysis after watching the first episode in one go. From my point of view Amnesia feels like a down-to-earth reality story extracted from the classical Alice through the Looking Glass trope but with the twist that everything happens to the heroine in the real world due that she's amnesiac.

Right now, before posting this review, I researched Amnesia and found out that the anime is adapted from a visual novel, otome game released in 2011; the first game itself received very positive reviews in Japan and all sorts of paraphernalia of goods and items associated with the game have been released since that date.

Without precise certainty what I can vaguely discern about the character designs is that some characters like Ikki I could swear come straight from Yana Tobosos' designs for Kuroshitsuji, if you observe with detail Ikki's character working at the Meido no Shitsuji café.

It's too early for me to give a well rounded analysis about the story based upon the first chapter, since like the heroine I'm lost and loss at words of how to make the plot threads to knit them together. Though I must admit that listening to Kaori Nazuka as the voice of the Heroine for this series both lulls and soothes me to a full sense of serenity without making me sleepy.

For me, the interactions are all pretty interesting. After all, we're all as clueless as her since we are seeing things in her perspective. Looks like I'll watch this for the unraveling of events.

Have you watched Fushigi Yuugi? It's a much older reverse-harem series but....
Miaka isn't just "dumb"...she is mind-numbingly stupid...and neither her looks or personality makes up for that.
Kyoani at least has cute dumb leads.

Not when the designs are all the same each season.



EDIT:

Episode 2:

Wait, what?

Shin already make his move already??? O_O Didn't saw that coming.

The adaptation is going in a really unexpected direction.
Spoiler for 2:

The mystery is getting very intriguing. I'm loving this. The heroine is starting to get random flashbacks, or at least this is what she thought they were. Her conversation with Kent indicates they are not, since he had no recollection of going to a festival with her. I then assumed they were flashforwards to future events, however with the way the episode ended, I'm led to believe they are actually memories from alternate timelines. Heroine killed herself falling off that cliff and returned to August 1st, starting a new loop. I assume Orion is basically the Hanyuu to Heroine's Rikka. If that's how it is, then the MC will easily be able to date all the guys over the course of the series (as the OP indicates). The problem is time, 12 episodes is short.

Green haired guy is very suspicious. He seems aware of what is happening. I was starting to think he wasn't such a bad guy when he saved the MC's life earlier in the episode, but then he went full psycho. Not sure what his intentions are.

This is very interesting so far.

Episode 2 was really good in my opinion. Now I'm curious on how they'll fit in everyone's route

Going on a trip. That should be fun.
Well, at least her workplace is pretty nice.
Her spacing out made her dangerous to herself.
Her memory flashbacks kept popping up all the time.
The trip itself was so-so, until she did something stupid again.
At least the kiss part was a nice surprise.

Wait. A time loop, in August? I've got deja vu...

But seriously, I was finding the heroine such a complete weed that I was ready to drop this but the sudden development at the end means I'm giving it at least one more episode to see where it's going.

To be honest, I think Yui is the dumbest in FY. She believes whatever lies Nakago chooses to feed her.

Back to Amnesia, I am watching this show for the guys, really. The heroine is like a doll without a soul. I understand the reason and all but listening to an almost lifeless person speaking lulls me to sleep.

Well, are we seeing a case of the Generic Otome Protagonist?

The genderbended version of the Bland Male Lead/Generic Harem protagonist?

I must admit, much of this episode was rather boring. Horribly so, that I thought of dropping this. The final scenes however, had me hooked once more to this episode, so it's earned another episode's grace period.

Wow! Just... Wow. I certainly didn't see that twist of an ending coming.

I sat down to the first two episodes.
It is indeed pretty intriguing. And pretty in general! I love the two-toned eyes! The OP and ED are pretty too. Reminds me of a cross between Okina Reika (the vocals) and Yousei (composition).

My favorite character so far is Orion. He's too cute! As for the boys, I choose Shin.
Big suprise, eh?
Well, he's the only one with actual sex appeal!
.....even though he dresses really....weird. Well, they ALL dress weird. That's my biggest complaint so far. Heroine's outfits are cute though. I like her rose barrette shoes! And her hairstyle is cute too.
Nice kiss.

Meh, they're both idiots....but at least Yui is a better student. XD Miaka fails in both grades AND common sense so....yeah.....

I agree that Orion is just too cute! And I kind of like the way they dress. Kinda. It's a bit on the funky side but more daring than I would actually go, lol.

Shin is definitely one of my favorites! Him and Kent. It must be that quiet, smart guy, appeal.

Yes, Shin is hot stuff. ^w^ I was sad he barely got screentime in episode 1 but episode 2 made up for that.

>_>

*wants an Orion doll*

The end of the second ep felt like the player ran into a bad end and restarted from a new route/save point. It'll be interesting to see where they take it from here, since she's now a few days earlier than when she 'started' and no Orion in sight.

Oh and I can't stop laughing at how I called her a deer in headlights last week only for her to nearly turn herself into roadkill just like one this week. I just had to do this:



I hereby call her Deer-chan until her actual name is revealed.

Not really. Falling from the cliff is the beginning of Shin's route

Hmm, now that I think about it, I find it odd that her flashbacks(?) in this ep didn't have those colour filters over them like the first. I was pretty sure the colours were meant to represent which routes the scenes were from considering how blatantly colour coded everyone is but now I dunno.

I said that because of how she started back at the beginning of August and it was a jest anyway.

I don't think so, usually your generic mc generally is indecisive and a day-dreamer.

Here the mc is an amnesic girl with some trauma that stops her from taking action.
