Japanese anime series set in a school where students investigate the paranormal. Newly-arrived at Seikyou Private Academy, Teiichi Niiya (voice of Clint Bickham) loses his way and encounters the ghost of a young girl named Yuko Kanoe (Emily Neves), who has no recollection of how she died 60 years previously. Teiichi joins the Paranormal Investigations Club of which Yuko is president and, along with other students Momoe Okonogi (Brittney Karbowski) and Kirie Kanoe (Jessica Boone), the granddaughter of Yuko's sister, they look into the mysterious ghost stories surrounding the school.

Hey, Dusk maiden is a very good anime for a slightly older audience I'd suggest.. some of the episodes are pretty dark in spite of the general good humor of the series overall. It's a love-story set in a school, I won't bore you with another synopsis here, but also a supernatural thriller. I've been watching it online and would happily buy the series on DVD and would recommend it to others who enjoy a darker flavored anime. I've been watching it in Japanese with subs which I enjoy even though it's a bit more work, but it would be interesting to watch it dubbed.. yes this package will definitely be on my wish-list for the future.. it's a really good story, one of the best animes I've watched recently.. a definite 5 stars from me! Px :))

While lost in the partially abandoned part of his school, Teiichi Niiya encounters the beautiful and lively Yuuko Kanoe, the ghost of a girl who died when the school first opened and who has since lost all memory of her past. Along with the supernatural obsessed Momoe Okonogi and Kirie Kanoe a living relative of Yuuko, Teiichi forms the Paranormal Investigation Club to study the school's many ghost stories and discover the truth about Yuuko's past.

This collection includes all twelve episodes on the 'Dusk Maiden of Amnesia' ('Tasogare Otome x Amnesia') anime along with an OVA and a slightly extended version of the final episode (although it is only a few minutes longer than the original). Based on a manga by the author Maybe, the anime drops quite a few of the story arcs and characters from the original due to being only twelve episodes long but the plot that is left remains good, being very funny in places and quite emotional in others. The ending of the anime is changed quite a bit (in some places being the opposite of the manga) but remains entertaining and is very emotional (I will admit I may have shed a tear at a couple of scenes.

The animation of the series is good with some extremely beautiful moments throughout such as for the entirety of the opening credits sequence and during the night swimming scene in episode four. The first-person perspective and cinema style used for the flashback in episode ten was also done very well.

The collection includes both the Japanese and English versions and while I do personally prefer the Japanese, the dub is still quite decent and keeps the Japanese honorifics. There were no voices in the English dub that I disliked with all the major cast members suiting their roles relatively well.

A quality anime that is very artistic, a ghostly romance mystery thriller that would be well worth adding to any decent anime collection and one that yet again shows that a limited number of episodes can pack a real punch story wise.
Highly recommended.

Teiichi Niiya has just enrolled at Seikyou private academy, a school which has so many very old and new buildings that it has become a disorienting creepy maze in places, gets lost inside whilst looking into a ghost story he has heard about.
Looking into a mirror he is startled when he sees a girl behind him, and she introduces herself as Yuko Kanoe a ghost who has no memories. Teiichi appears to be the only one who can see and touch Yuko, and together they form the Paranormal Investigations club("looking for new members" is posted on the door), with Yuko as the president, to investigate the mysteries surrounding the school, help those who are troubled and learn about Yuko's past, all the while Teiichi and Yuko grow closer.

But how close can a ghost and a living person get?

I am sucker for romance anime's and the plot line was intriguing to me and I had just finished Another, so I gave it a go. I am glad I did.
The plot is excellently written, with each episode having both laugh out loud moments (the club for the cultural festival has a haunted house theme and advertises "a genuine one might appear!?"), as well as some truly tender and touching moments. Some episodes are very sad and moving and liable to bring tears to some peoples eyes. The show will reach for all of your emotions at different times, sometimes flipping from one to another in quick succession.

The opening and closing music are excellent and really fit the show with the animation done as though Yuko is singing to you, and each one is slightly different to fit what has happened in the show (some differences are more obvious than others).

To summarise without giving away spoilers, if you liked the style of Another, the feels of Clannad and Angel Beats, mixed together with romantic comedy then you will enjoy this anime too (think Just Like Heaven).
