Something that irritates me in anime

Is when a character loses their memory for an extended period of time. This just really bugs me. It seems to happen in a lot of anime and I would like for it to stop, NOW. This just happened in
Code Geass with CC
Hopefully it won't last too long.

That's enough ranting for me today. What are everyone else’s thoughts on this?

Faye's was good because she had it from the beginning of the series and she wasn't constantly going on about it.

I think Amnesia just becomes an easy way to further a lazy plot, not just in anime. Spider-man 3 did it too.....

It's ok if it's done right. Most of the time, it isn't. Zoids started off with Fiona not knowing who she was. She only partially regained it (never knowing all of her past). It was part of the main plot, but as time went on, it became less important than Van's journey as a Zoid pilot.

I agree that's it's used way too much.

I think they are more talking loosing it mid series like C.C. or people just forgetting from something
Yep that is exactly what we are talking about.

As Alt pointed out it is just lazy writing. Giving a main character amnesia is just an easy way to change the dynamics of the show.
