The North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on Friday that it has licensed the Amnesia television anime series. The company plans to release the series digitally with a home video release later this year.
The story of Otomate's original female-oriented 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.
