Synopsis

60 years ago, a young woman was left to die in the abandoned school building behind the exclusive Seikyou Academy. No one knows why. No one knows how. But the horrifying tale and the legends of the ghostly haunting that followed live on to this day. Perhaps it's not so surprising then, that among Seikyou's many school clubs is one for students interested in "paranormal investigations." What might raise more than a few hairs, however, is that the founder of the club is the ghost herself. Unable to remember how she died and trapped in the grey land between life and death, Yuuko latches onto Teiichi Niiya, a freshman who can inexplicably see her, and together they and the other unsuspecting members of the club begin to unravel the many dark mysteries that surround Seikyou. Will unlocking the secret of Yuuko's gruesome death finally free her? Or will her sudden close association with a mortal have even stranger repercussions on both of their existences?

Mixing very different themes together can sometimes produce surprising results, but there's a big risk involved with this approach to storytelling and original concepts that are formed using this process often fall at the first hurdle. There are always exceptions to this guideline, but in anime these are usually adaptations of some other media that are often the result of hopeful popularity forecasts and a severe lack of common sense.

Thankfully, Tasogare Otome x Amnesia (Dusk Maiden of Amnesia), manages to steer its way through the conversion rapids - but not without taking some damage along the way.

Based on the manga by Maybe, the story revolves read more

I had been looking for nice romance anime(not manga, because there are plenty there) after I had watched most of the common ones. I found this on my kissanme bookmark and remembered somebody had recommended this to me before but since I was not a fan of horror genre I didnt watch it immediately. But somehow from the first episode of this anime I was hooked and it turned out pretty good too.

The artwork and animation was beautiful. They used the artwork brilliantly to differentiate between the “main characters” and the “other people” at a level even superior to Durarara!! The “ghosts” were also drawn read more

Dusk Maiden of Amnesia. Even that title alone may convince some viewers to watch this series. But what you may least expect would be a ghost troll (a hot ghost troll if I may add) hanging out with the main protagonist on a daily basis doing cute little things here and there.

The story covers the Paranormal Investigation Club, a club that deals with the supernatural. From there, we have the other members starting with Teiichi Niiya, probably the only normal member of the group. He maintains an unusual relationship with our ghost troll Yuuko in which despite her flirtatious and mischievous attempts at him, read more

Psychological, funny and horrific (in the good way) Dusk Maiden of Amnesia was to me a psychological problem solving romance anime that was on the verge of masterpiece. But they decided to bring the heroin back and that to me was their downfall.

A few untied loose ends but not enough to hate the ending. Extreme sadness then overjoyed happiness flowed throughout the last few moments of the show, even a few tears swelled up in this 14 year old dork. Clint Bickham, Emily Neves, Brittney Karbowski and Jessica Boone did an outstanding job I highly recommend the English Dubbed version. The show overall was read more

Recommendations

Both of these Anime are dark Gothic revolving around the unusual romance a guy has with... a girl out of horror who just wants to be... normal... and not a monster.
There is a ghost of a girl that only one character can see, the male lead character. There are some things that the group needs to figure out revolving around the ghost, for good or for bad.
Gothic ghost mysteries of some form. A girl is invisible to all except one for a particular reason. There is also a lack of trust at times, which results in negative things happening.
Similarities:

Both involves girls who was murdered and was unable to rest in peace.

Both involves boy who always gets pestered by the ghost of the dead girl.

Dissimilarities:

One has an extra horror genre, while the other one has an extra comedy genre.
Without giving too much info and spoiling, both female protagonists are somewhat going through similar circumstances. What is quite interesting is they have the same first name... Yuuko Kanoe and Yuuko Amamiya (ef - A tale of melodies), and similar features (hair/color, body)

NOTE: However this recommendation is a SEQUEL so it is suggested to watch the prequel first (ef - A tale of Memories) and understand the story.
Both series centre around a uniform-wearing girl with unusual powers who originates from a bygone era. Natsu no Arashi has a lot more humour and slice-of-life aspects compared to Tasogare Otome's fairly consistant drama and seriousness, but both series have a reasonable enough balance of humour and seriousness that they're still very comparable. Additionally, they both have a similar directorial style -- not all THAT surprising, given Oonuma Shin worked on both.
