The official website for the television anime adaptation of Maybe's Dusk maiden of Amnesia (Tasogare Otome×Amnesia) manga began streaming the series' live-action promotional video on Friday. The website also announced that a live audio commentary show with Yumi Hara, the voice actress who plays Yūko Kanoe, will air after each episode broadcast and premiere on April 13.
Maybe's story is set at a private academy that has a history of hauntings by spirits, including a ghost girl named Yūko. For some mysterious reason, first-year middle school student Teiichi Niiya (voiced by Tsubasa Yonaga) is the only person who can see Yūko. Yūko has no memory of her death, much less who or what caused it. Yūko and Teiichi create an investigation club to find the truth about her death and the other mysteries of the school.
The animation studio Silver Link (Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts) is animating Dusk maiden of Amnesia. Shin Oonuma (Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts) is directing the series, Katsuhiko Takayama (Mirai Nikki) is handling the series composition, and Yukiko Ban (Beelzebub, .hack//SIGN) is adapting Maybe's characters for animation. Konomi Suzuki is performing the opening theme song "Choir Jail," while Aki Okui is contributing the ending theme song "Karandorie."
The series will premiere in Japan on Sunday.
