The official website for the anime adaptation of Otomate's female-oriented video game Amnesia began streaming the first promotional video with animated footage on Friday. The video features the opening theme song "Zoetrope" by Nagi Yanagi (Jormungand, Waiting in the Summer). (Ray performs the ending theme "Recall" after contributing to Waiting in the Summer and To Love-Ru -Trouble- Darkness.)
The story of the original romance game begins on the morning of August 1, when the heroine wakes up and discovers she has absolutely no memories of the past. A boy appears before her, and he introduces himself as a "spirit" named Orion. The heroine struggles to regain her memories under the guidance of Orion. She then gets a phone call, but she does not recognize the name on her mobile phone screen. She meets her apparent "boyfriend," despite not knowing his face.
