Note:“Let’s talk”is a new category that I thought about adding. I will treat subjects pertinent to otome games/reverse harem/fujoshi stuff that I feel are worthy to take note of or talk about or that I just consider educational. So on with the first topic!
As you all know Amnesia: Memories is in a current frenzy in the Western otome game topics for some days ago. (It also seems to be the only thing I post about lately too lol, I’m sorry! ; w;). It has recieved a Very Positive rating on Steam and the good reviews keep popping out and this kind of make me reflect on the whole Amnesia promotion and I reached to the question: “Why is Shin the promotional face of Amnesia?”. He is on most promotional poster adds, on the game covers of Amnesia, Amnesia Later and Amnesia Crowd and if he’s not the only one in there, like on the Amnesia World and Amnesia anime DVD covers, he’s almost always at the center or more “obviously in eye range” position (with some exceptions, of course). Why not Ukyo? Why not Toma, Kent or Ikki? Why not all of them? After deep thought these are the reasons that I managed to come up with:
Let me get on the Amnesia train! I’m still excited I was able to own it so soon!
There are 4 endings available for Shin’s route.GOOD END, NORMAL END, and 2 (actually 3 but it’s only slightly different)DEAD ENDS (yes, I mean it.) Also, don’t be afraid to experiment. I usually save before every choice to see the immediate outcome of both options.

Summary: This story takes place in a fictional town, in a fictional country, in a fictional world. One morning, a young lady awakens to find that she has lost all her memories prior to that morning. Her life, her relationships, her very name—all gone. All that’s left is a cell phone with numbers and names she doesn’t recognize and Orion, a young boy that only she appears to be able to see. With Orion’s guidance, she struggles to make sense of herself, a boyfriend she doesn’t know and the thousand and one little things that make up a daily life. But with no memories left, the only alternative is to forge new ones, even if that means leaving old loves behind.
