          Tasogare Otome X Amnesia known in English as the Dusk Maiden of Amnesia is an incredible dramatic romance. Tasogare Otome X Amnesia focuses on a young man by the name of Teiichi Niiya who can see ghost and a young girl named Yuuko Kanoe. Yuuko is a ghost that has roamed the halls of Niiya's school's for decades and has no recollection of her death. Yuuko comes in contact with Niiya after he discovers her corpse by mistake and the two end up forming a close bond. Niiya along with Yuuko and Kirie Kane, the granddaughter of Yuuko's younger sister and an enthusiastic ghost hunter named Momoe Okonogi form a club tasked with researching the ghostly mysteries of their school. Yuuko has made a name for herself as the school's number one specter, becoming the center of the school's seven mysteries. During the course of their investigations, there seems to be one clue after another that begins to fill in the pieces of Yuuko's broken memory.

             Niiya is a bit of a naive type of guy while Yuuko is more of a flirtatious and assertive type of person that isn't easily embarrassed. Tasogare Otome X Amnesia has a perfect transition from a comedic romance to a dramatic romance unlike some romance series that try desperately to transition from comedy to drama. The series begins as a comedy with Yuuko playing all kinds of pranks with her ghostly abilities while her fellow club members have to put up with it all. Yuuko's personality drastically changes after more of her memories begin to return to her and this is where the drama begins. Being a story focused on ghost, this anime wouldn't be complete without some horror and this series isn't actually scary but it can give you the creeps to a certain extent. The ending of Tasogare Otome X Amnesia may not match the dramatic tone of the series' second half but it definitely matches it's comedic moments from the first half. The most important part of this review is to note that Tasogare Otome X Amnesia is a very enjoyable show that you won't become bored of, always keeping you interested in what's going to happen next.
