Having lost her memories of the past three years, Arisa Suzuki is surprised to learn that Mari Satou is her girlfriend. While Mari worries that she no longer loves her, it is obvious from their reunion that it was love at first sight for Arisa once more. Wanting to rekindle their bond, Mari endeavors to remind Arisa about their experiences—from their first meeting to their first kiss.

Yet, the task proves to be difficult as Arisa can no longer do a multitude of things. This becomes prominent when Mari describes the sex life the two shared. In the past, Arisa was very dominant in their relationship, often being the initiator. However, lacking the experience she once had, Arisa is now more timid than the person her girlfriend illustrates, causing her to envy her pre-amnesiac self.

Thus, the two begin to reconstruct their relationship, devotedly putting in as much effort as they can for the one they love most.

I won't go into any details to avoid spoilers but this is filled with a lot of cute stories essentially following this ...

Akarui Kioku Soushitsu is pretty much exactly what it proclaims to be. The main character has amnesia and proceeds to fall in love with her partner all over again at first sight. She's goofy, cheerful, playful, and just wants to see what happens next. This story really emphasizes how important it is to have someone positive around, because she is continually inspiring other characters with her positive attitude and awkward straightforwardness.

It has its heartfelt moments too. There were plenty of things that I, as a lesbian, could identify with, but it's not like. Tear-jerking. It's more sweet than anything.

Anyway, really the whole thing is about ...

Preliminary (12/67 eps)
The funniest thing I have read all week was about a woman thinking of getting a lobotomy after her dog calming down after getting one. Before that, it was reading through our local nazi party's political ideas and before that it was someone laughing way too much at a picture of a dromedary (it was actually a gazelle, but that's beside the point).

The point is that I'm not much for manga comedy. They almost never makes me react more than a giggle so it's possible that my distaste for Cheerful Amnesia is purely due to a disconnect between my brand of humor and the ...
