AMNESIA Ep 2: Shards of Memories


My name is Eva, I've been watching Anime since 2003, and I became a fan later in 2005. I am a passionate writer, so it's a wonderful experience and incredibly thrilling to blog reviews/critics and just express myself about the series.

    It’s so depressing… Ugh. This kind of anime pisses me off or maybe because the heroine isn’t really my type at all but I don’t wanna give up on this show yet. Kent is inspiring me to continue and Ukyou is so…. like N. LOL

      Hahaha I get what you mean that Ukyou is like N. XD Eh, I don’t find it particularly depressing, but for sure it’s slow. The heroine’s current state is not exactly appreciated amongst most of the audience so hopefully they’ll speed up her development just a tad.

    If I have an amnesia like the heroine…I don’t think I’ll just follow whatever Orion advises me to do? Because even if he knew what happened before, I think trust should be built first. Although I guess they want to show her as a character who’s pretty gullible at the moment because she’s so helpless and clueless at the moment…But really, if I was her, I wouldn’t be so trusting and follow what Orion says. I guess I’m trying my best to relate to her or analyze her, but at this moment, I can’t. It’s frustrating…She’s like…talking slow every time lol and it’s somehow frustrating because it’s like so laborious for her…But oh well those are my thoughts. I like the mystery and I have to say I’m glad there are other girls in that cafe. At least it didn’t feel so reverse harem as it is already promoted to be. Ü I do hope the heroine develops well. That she’ll learn to talk and walk fast and not trip and have a “time fall” (see what I did there? Reminds me of Jumper movie).

      I feel your pain for how slowly and softly she speaks. It’s something that we will have to get used to.
      Yeah right now it seems like she is our typical “cluz” heroine we see in almost every otome game/adaptions. I too hope she will get stronger and as she regains her memory show us what kind of personality she has and more energy. As for Orion, I get what you mean by it’s a bit weird that she is trusting him right off the bat instead of confronting the others. But we’ll see. I hope he isn’t going to turn out as the ‘bad guy’ of any sort- ;w; he’s too cute.

    Yeah, I’ll be really sad if Orion ends up being a bad guy…and yet I’m always trying to consider every possible angle, including the one where Orion’s concerned instructions to do this or that are in fact leading her down a bad path, or that his insistence that she regain her memories are a part of his own schemes. But hopefully not! Ukyou seems like an interesting fellow. I had him pegged as the antagonist/potential harem member given the brief instance in the opening credits where he’s about to kiss her (not to mention the creepy stalker camera), and it seems that my thoughts are on the right track a least. I’m very curious to see if his good guy/insane person swaps are part of an act or an actual mental illness.

    And suddenly revealing that Shin ‘killed’ someone without giving us the context or anything…I find it hard to believe they’d reveal the dangerous/not-what-he-seems harem member just like that, so I’m holding off passing any final judgements for now- but I still hate his character. “How long are you planning to sleep for?”- uh, hello? She’s in the hospital? I get that criticizing her is how he shows his concern, but that doesn’t make him any less of a jerkface. And then he kisses her? I just…I just…I don’t understand your otome formula, Japan!!! Gaaah DX

    It seems to me that she’s either experiencing a memory, or has actually time-slipped back to the 1st. Heck, maybe all of what we’ve seen up until now has just been her experiencing memories, going in and out of order- her falling off the cliff made me think back to the drowning scene in the first episode. It could be that she’s been unconscious this whole time, drifting through her past and unable to wake up. That’s a real stretch though, haha. In any case, the show certainly knows how to keep things interesting. Except for the air-hockey thing. Not gonna lie, I skipped that a little, because…there is no place for air-hockey here. I just do not care :/
