Memory Loss in anime

my friend and i were just having a discussion on this. is there any romance anime or manga where one of the two people in the relationship loses their memories and forgets the other. it needs to have the dreaded, "who are you" line..

you need not recommend the following

ef ~ a tale of memories
Code Geass
Tsubasa
Onegai teacher

danka
~gt

Kanon/2006 version. Memory loss is outright what fuels mystery to enhance this adaptation.
Fruits Basket deals with the threat of memory loss, but it's not always central.
Oh, and suppose Rahxephon as well, though that's not just romance.

All of these series are generally well received.

I'm not big on rom cons but I'm sure you should list most of them.

The only one I can think of is a BL manga Dear Myself (and it's sequel World's End).

The first thing that came to mind was Sukisho (Sukisyo), but I'm not so sure now that I've given it some thought. It's been a while since I've seen it.

Ah! My Goddess - it's the premise of the movie, it's brought up in the OAV, and there's a recent arc devoted to it in the manga.

Ranma 1/2 - there are a couple of short arcs / episodes when a major character has amnesia.

Elfen Lied - Main character doesn't remember someone very important to his life and the events of his past.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya - If there's a second season, I believe they'll be doing the "Disappearance" arc. If there's no second season, then the fourth light novel covers this.

Elfen Lied.

Sumomo mo Momomo mo- the main male character has regressed his childhood memories of his time with that cute air-headed pink-haired girl.

I don't remember his name (Irony, anyone?), but the first person that comes to mind is that dude with the mask on Utawarerumono.

Nanako 6/17 about a 17 year old girl who hits her head and reverts back to a 6 year old. She doesn't remember her later years, only her 6 year old self and relives that period of her life again.
