Satomi Satou (K-ON!, Is the order a rabbit?) as Karin Fukazawa
Naoto Hosoda will direct the anime at animation studio feel with scripts by Sadayuki Murai, Tatsuya Takahashi, and Satoko Shinozuka and series composition by Rie Kawamata. Ikuo Yamakado will be designing the characters based on original designs by Kurehito Misaki and Shinobu Kuroya. Fūga Hatori will provide the music. Satoshi Motoyama will serve as the project's sound director.
The original game's story is set one autumn at the beginning of the 21st century in the Uchihama area. Uchihama Academy is growing by leaps and bounds. With the construction of a new school building, there will be one last General Club Festival at the old building that is slated to be closed. The students vow to go all out to make this final cultural festival a success.
The Astronomy Club of the protagonist Sō Akiyama is filled with the big names on campus. Just before the festival on October 1, the club receives a request from the student executive committee to calm the uneasiness among the students. There are reports of ghost sightings, accidents, sleeping sickness, and other mysterious incidents at the old building. When Yui Furukawa, a quiet girl who transferred late into the school, appears before Sō, the gears of fate slowly begin to move.
TRUMPLE released the game for personal computers in Japan in 2010. Ushinawareta Mirai o Motomete is the only game the company ever released, and it announced in 2012 that production within the company had ceased.
The anime series will premiere on television in Japan this October.
