SynopsisThis story takes place in a fictional town, in a fictional country, in a fictional world. One morning, a young lady awakens to find that she has lost all her memories prior to that morning. Her life, her relationships, her very name—all gone. All that's left is a cell phone with numbers and names she doesn't recognize and Orion, a young boy that only she appears to be able to see. With Orion's guidance, she struggles to make sense of herself, a boyfriend she doesn't know and the thousand and one little things that make up a daily life. But with no memories left, the only alternative is to forge new ones, even if that means leaving old loves behind.

Characters & Voice Actors
So I'm rarely inclined to write reviews but, since I just finished Amnesia, I thought I'd share my opinion of it, hopefully providing a good review for those considering to watch it.
Being adapted from an Otome game, you already know the plot isn't going to be a major strength: it's a girl who has several boys to choose from.
Regardless, Amnesia doesn't focus too much on the romance but more on the mystery surrounding the main character and her memory loss.
What I feel is bad about the story is that it doesn't start to properly explain things until the last two episodes, so you have to sit through 10 episodes and you have no idea what's going on and then in the last two episodes you have all the information quickly shoved down your throat.
At only 12 episodes, they should have started to explain things sooner so the ending didn't feel rushed.
This is Amnesia's best thing, really (and, in my opinion, its redeeming quality).
The art is incredibly colorful, beautiful and smooth.
Most girls will probably love how the boys look, from their unique eyes to their even more unique outfits.
The sound here is hit and miss.
Nagi Yanagi sings the amazing OP song "Zoetrope" and there's some nice background music.
On the other hand, the heroine's voice might be annoying to a lot of people. She barely talks at all and, when she does, it's usually single words or sound effects that express doubt and confusion.
Again, the series can hardly be blamed for the bad characters since it's an adaptation.
The main character (conveniently named "Heroine") has the personality of a wooden board, is unbelievably naive, can't say "No" to anyone and is always hurting herself in some accidental way. In fact, that's pretty much all she does; in one episode she goes as far as to sit still on a couch for several hours.
Yes, she has amnesia; that's not an excuse for not having a personality.
She rarely questions anyone or speaks up about her feelings, never gets angry or frustrated at anything or anyone and seems to be perfectly happy being treated like a severly handicapped person who depends on everyone.
The guys have reasonably distinct, cliché personalities:
There's the lone-wolf bad guy, the extremely popular guy that all girls like, the overly racional guy who analizes everything like a math problem, the social and outgoing guy and the mysterious guy.
The only thing they have in common is that they're all in love with Heroine and the majority try to force physical interactions with her whether she wants to or not.
Basically, the guys are meant to be eye-candy for female viewers and Heroine is serious facepalm material.
I actually scored this anime 4/10 in my anime list because I'm quite harsh with my own ratings but I don't want my personal opinion to get too much in the way of the review so let's call it even with 5/10.
At first I was completely confused by the story but mid-series I started to get that "I kinda wanna know what happens next" feeling.
I don't like the story or the characters but it kept me interested mainly because I wanted to see where they were going with it.
It's a bit of a guilty pleasure; I wanted to see so I could rant about it, basically.
You'll probably like Amnesia if:
- You played the game and dreamed of an animated version;
- You like Reverse Harem;
- You find the male characters attractive.
- You're looking for a non-comedy Shoujo with very few actual romantic scenes (there's some kissing and dating but the heroine is always confused as opposed to lovestruck). read more
WARNING: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SOME SPOILERS but not really major ones but you have been warned
I thought the story was well done for this kind of anime (although it could've been a lot better). It follows a girl who has lost her memories and time seems to go back to August 1st to a world that she has no memories of of course dating a different guy every time. I don't know if it's just me but I didn't find it confusing at all - it was actually quite predictable. The story itself was much more based on the actual storyline rather than the dating and romance side which is unusual for an otome game adaptation. After the first few episodes, I got a grasp of what's happening and that made it fairly easy to predict.
The art was very good and along with the story, is the best point of this anime. What was particularly nice was the character design. (I don't know why but for some reason the eyes were really off in most characters and that annoyed me which is why it isn't 8/10)
The sound is like the anime overall - it had some good parts and bad parts but was all in all average and nothing really stood out for good or bad reasons
Alright this was the horrible point of this anime - The heroine who is unnamed throughout the series is dull, stupid and naive. Even after repeating the same thing over and over again, she never seems to learn anything and the creatrs seem to have just given up on her halfway. She also never seems to be able to stand up for herself or say 'no' to anyone.
Now, the enjoyment would've been higher if they had made the heroine better. She seemed to take all the potentially good parts out of it. As the story progressed, it dropped more and more clues (that were obvious in my opinion). Although it was all summed up on the last 2 episodes, I think that only the heroine didn't have any idea of what's going on.
Overall, this anime is not good or bad and the anime has the same number of bad points as good points. read more
The heroine in both shows are almost emotionless and all the guys are after her. Each guy gets his own episode/arc.
both have a shy female main character
five handsome boys with different characters around her , actually they care about her
same art and same visual effects
Same quiet heroine;
Both based on otome game;
Reverse-harem - all the boys are in love with the one girl-heroine;
Similar animation - the eyes, hair, people...
Both are based off of Otome games and have reverse male harems! The main female character goes down each guys' route in both series (but there is only implied romance in Utapri whereas the female protag dates the guys in Amnesia). Watch them if you love bishi male characters!
•both are based from an Otome game which is pretty convenient
•both have a quiet/facial expressive/shy girl protagonist which are surrounded by lots of hunky/loveable/handsome bishies.
•both are pretty much different in plots, mysteries in one, musical in the other
•both i rated differently, i loved Uta Pri, with its excitable musical lyrics from each character, yet i hated and dropped Amnesia early on, because its just really DULL!!! even though the artwork music were great, it was boring.
•they are just similar in the shy girl surrounded by lots of guys who adore her and have feelings for her, in a roundabout way, you probably might like one if you like the other
Both have mindbogglingly weak protagonists. Enjoy.
Okay~ in all seriousness, the reverse-harem thing.
Also, the protagonists kinda have the same look. I think the red hair and yellowy-green eyes automatically means weak protagonists in anime (Arcana Famiglia). It's a trend!
Both were based on an otome game;
Both have a shy heroine and almost incapable of making decisions;
Both have a reverse harem;
All the main boys fell in love with the heroine and they have distinct personalities;
Similar art: eyes, different clothes, hair...
Both are Shojo, and the protagonist is a girl surrounded by five guys.
Difference with (Utapri) that it is a musical school where the girl writes the songs and the boys sing in a debut,
While in (Amnesia) the girl loses memory and apparently will get help from the five guys to recover his memories.
My first recommendation I hope you enjoy it!
They are both romantic anime
They have hot bishounen boys
They are both are about a group of boys that are in love with the heroine. Both anime allows the viewer to "choose" which character is the best to stay with the heroine. The heroine is a simple character that allows the viewers to feel that that they are the heroine.
Both about a practically emotionless girl and a bunch of guys falling for her.
Two stories with extremily passive main characters surrounded by handsome guys that all wish to have her.
The main heroine from both series have similar personality and character designs. The only difference between them is that one was able to react to her surrounding. She knew something was wrong and tried to escape while the other doesn't do anything until the right moment occurs. Amnesia and Diabolik have gorgeous bishounen characters with great voice actors too. Both are reverse harem anime and have been adapted from an Otome visual novel.
Like Amnesia, Diabolik Lovers is also a shoujo anime and an adaptation of an otome game. Both anime have a quiet female lead with little personality and a variety of male bishounen characters of various personality types too. Infact, both have six main male characters each. If you like reverse harems then you'll probably like this anime! I think that fans of Diabolik Lovers are almost guaranteed to enjoy Amnesia and vice versa.
I don't know why people are relating this to Brothers Conflict because neither of these series are even remotely similar in terms of atmosphere, plot and storyline.
Anyway, both have some messed up guys, have mystery, horror (more on DiaLovers) and involves many bishounen pursuing a helpless female.
They are both inspired in a game, harem that doesnt resolve, similar main characters shy and quiet... Confusing endings.
The female main character both are practically emotionless and are both extremely naive. They both include attractive looking guys and they all "want" her. Both have beautiful art and the endings are unexpected. If you liked one of these I'm positive you will like the other!
