The official website for the Ushinawareta Mirai o Motomete (À la recherche du futur perdu or Searching for the Lost Future) television anime announced on Thursday that Akio Ohtsuka will take over Masashi Hirose's role of Sakunoshin Honjō in the show. The website referenced Hirose's extended hospitalization for an unspecified illness as the reason for the change.
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.
Sakunoshin Honjō is the butler of the family of one of the students, Nagisa Hanamiya. The anime will premiere on October 4.
