Dusk Maiden of Amnesia is only supposed to last 12 episodes, but according to the official website, there's a bit more on the way. The sixth Japanese Blu-ray/DVD volume will include a 13th episode that won't air on TV.
I know having a bonus episode for the home media release isn't a new thing, but it kind of bugs me. If the episode is anything meaningful, it should have been included in the original airing. If the episode is pure fluff, an omake, like it is the vast majority of the time, it feels like a waste. I've almost never enjoyed such episodes, precisely because they feel like filler, an afterthought, or pure, self-indulgent fanservice.
But hey, maybe this episode of Dusk Maiden of Amnesia will be the one episode to really change my mind! Does anyone else feel the same way, or am I alone in wishing for a better approach to these extra episodes?
