The media site Crunchyroll announced on Monday that it will stream the television anime adaptation of Maybe's Dusk maiden of Amnesia (Tasogare Otome×Amnesia) manga on Mondays at 12:00 a.m. EDT. The series will be available in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.
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. Aki Okui is contributing the ending theme song "Karandorie," and Konomi Suzuki is performing the opening theme "Choir Jail." Media Factory posted the anime's first promotional video in December and a second earlier this month.
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 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.
Dusk maiden of Amnesia premiered in Japan on Sunday.
