Anime: Amnesia (2013)

I sat down and powered through this title in three days, a random find one evening while browsing for new titles. This anime is based on the popular visual novel video game. (Why can't we get cool games like these released in the US? There's definitely a market for these types of games, just ask your neighborhood teenage girl!).

I read a lot of comments as well as reviews in between episodes and most of them were not great. Is it me or do people seem to have unrealistically high expectations of anime these days? They can't all be Naruto or Bleach or other endless 1000+ episode series. Don't expect too much coming into this one. Appreciate it for what it is, romance and eye candy - you'll be golden. The color palette for each character was very bright and everyone's eyes were rainbow gradients! It was mesmerizing. I also liked everyone's ombre hair too.

I rate this 4 out of 5 stars (as long as you don't over think it).
