Amnesia Romance Anime's 1st Promo With Animation Streamed

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.

The cast and staff are as follows:
  • Tetsuya Kakihara as Shin
  • Kishô Taniyama as Ikki
  • Akira Ishida as Kento
  • Satoshi Hino as Tōma
  • Kouki Miyata as Ukyō
  • Kaori Nazuka as "Heroine"
  • Hiromi Igarashi as Orion

Animation Production: Brains Base
Director: Yoshimitsu Ohashi
Character Design: Maho Yoshikawa
Series Script Editor: Touko Machida

The anime will premiere in Japan on January 8.

Uhm so they just took all the worlds and... mixed them? :/
IDK as usual I'm quite doubtful of animes from otome games (especially those I loved playing!) and this seems no different. BUT, I must admit that seeing them animated could make me want to watch it anyway...
Kishow, I'm stalking you.

Have you played the game?! (if so I have to!)
aku_rin 27th-Dec-2012 10:00 pm (UTC)
Well, for now I've just tried it a bit to see how it was and I liked it. I plan on finishing it when I'm not studying for exams.
I played it on psp, in Japanese.

It looks sort of pretty, but I prefer heroines with a bit more oomph behind them. (I just could not like the main girl in Utapri either :/) Having said that the original game has some of the prettiest art ♥

I never finished Utapri for that reason, I was like nope nope, not here for that.
kinari_pamyu 23rd-Dec-2012 04:10 pm (UTC)
Amen to that. I've not quite finished the series myself either. I'm purely into it for the fantastic fan-made yaoi, the merchandise, and the funny chemistry/awesome live skills of the seiyuu.
liime_arix 24th-Dec-2012 12:03 am (UTC)
And the fanart from pixiv and cosplay, can't forget that, lol. All of that is me and Utapri.
kinari_pamyu 24th-Dec-2012 12:10 am (UTC)
I've just opened a Tumblr mostly to post pixiv fanarts for series including Utapri ^_^; If I can lose enough weight I'm planning to cosplay one of the Starish members to an anime convention next year. (Not that anyone in England is going to recognize me ^^;)

The coloring of the guys' eyes is really distracting lol.

I'm so watching this just for Waka and Ikki tbh.

I'm curious as to how they'll go with the story (it seems like they're merging all the worlds but idk how this'll work out???) and I'm really hoping they'll keep Ikki and Kent's fights in the anime because those were always hilarious.

Not really expecting too much though. Seeing as most otome game adaptions tend to not do any justice to the original work.
