Sixty 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?

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

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

Ever so rarely do I get drawn to this type of story (anime/manga or otherwise). My encounter with Tasogare Otome x Amnesia was the result of pointless web searches on a sleepless melancholic night. The encounter began and ended on that same long night. And I enjoyed it thoroughly.

This is a very biased review - from the viewpoint of someone who enjoyed the show so much, they are more or less blind to its flaws; be it pointless fanservice/ecchi moments or major plot flaws. Every story and every piece of artwork has a number of those; and no piece of art is ever judged by read more

[Synopsis]: Niiya Teiichi (Yonaga, Tsubasa), a student at Seikyou Academy, loses his way when exploring one of the older school buildings when he encounters a girl named Kanoe Yuuko (Hara, Yumi). It turns out that she is the ghost who has haunted the school for 60 long years and the source of the many horror stories and recounts of paranormal activity that circulate among the students. As she does not remember how she died, she and Teiichi along with Okonogi Momoe (Fukuen, Misato) and Kanoe Kirie (Kitamura, Eri) form the Paranormal Investigations club in order to discover read more

Anime: Sankarea
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. 
reportRecommended by Yemi_Hikari
Anime: Another
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. 
reportRecommended by Yemi_Hikari
Anime: Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai.
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. What that is helps draw one into the series. 
reportRecommended by Yemi_Hikari
Anime: Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin (TV)

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.


One has an extra horror genre, while the other one has an extra comedy genre.
reportRecommended by Nasty001
Anime: ef: A Tale of Melodies.
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. 
reportRecommended by Mr_DaftPunk
Anime: Bakemonogatari
Both series deal with a supernaturally perceptive protagonist and the supernaturally afflicted arrogant girl who becomes his girlfriend, as well as various unusual supernatural cases he becomes involved in. Tasogare Otome's aesthetics and directorial style are very obviously influenced by Bakemonogatari as well.
