Journal of anime ramblings, fiction works and reflections
I was calm during the entirety of the third episode of Amnesia. That was the case for two reasons:
1. The fact that nothing Shoujo-mush worthy happened (well…there was an attempt on Shin’s part which ended in epic failure. I’ll get to that in a bit)
2. There was a more serious feel to this episode than the first two.
This episode headed down the potholed road of memory lane and each supporting character tried to refresh the clueless girl’s memories by relating the most important issue that caused her memory loss: The accident.
Needless to say the first person to realize her blatant memory loss was Shin, who also happens to be her boyfriend of three months – which he revealed to her. It’s not surprising that Shin is the one she is with. What greater pairing than to add the soft spoken damsel in distress with the tough Tsundere? I don’t mind it. I actually like Shin for her – I’m biased towards Tsunderes, that and the fact that he was the first to kiss her.
He was the first to attempt the task of restoring her memories by carrying her to the college which they both go to and bringing her to the music room, where he attempted his King of Hearts role.
I find it a little suspect that she couldn’t even remember Shin’s name but remembered Toma’s.
As for the accident, her coworkers were eager to tell her of what happened to try and restore her memories, but the vague bits and pieces she remembers do not coincide with the facts of what they tell her. So, along comes the awaited plot twist: what she remembers does not seem to be true memories. In both accidents: the one that caused her to lose her memories and the one she had in episode two involved falling over cliffs. She should really avoid these scenarios because her memory seems to only get worse.
As for Orion, who is like an obsolete remnant in this episode, has issues communicating with her and she cannot see him. She can hardly hear his voice. It could probably be assumed that because he is out of sync with her, why her memories seem to be in the mixed up state they are.
Shin, who the clueless girl asked to relate the incident that caused her memory loss, is tight-lipped about the situation because he feels completely responsible for what happened to her and isn’t ready yet to talk to her about it.
Maybe the person he killed is linked to her incident. Well, I’ll wait patiently for the next episode. I hated Shin for the suspense he caused, but at least there’s something to look forward to.
