GJ Club's Fujiwara directs "love story born from digital memories" anime

The official website for the Plastic Memories anime project began streaming the first promotional video for the series on Thursday.

Text: Tearing apart memories. That's our job.
Text: A love story born from digital memories.
Red text: She is frightened. She hopes that these memories of love are fake.
Blue text: He wishes. He hopes that these memories of love are real.

The website also unveiled the first key visual:

The website lists the story:

This story takes place in a future not too far away when androids that look exactly like humans begin to spread across the world. The android production company SA Corp. produced Giftia, a new kind of android that has the most amount of emotion and human-like qualities out of any other model ever seen. However, due to problems in technology, the androids have a service life, and once they pass that, they... Well, it gets pretty bad. For this reason, SA Corp. creates a terminal service in order to retrieve Giftia that have gone past their service life. A new employee at the terminal service named Tsukasa Mizugaki forms a team with the Giftia Isla to retrieve the other androids, but...

The characters include:

Tsukasa Mizugaki, a new employee at SA Corp.'s terminal service who joined after graduating high school. However, he does not know much about his job.

Isla, a Giftia who doesn't show much emotion. She starts working in a team with Tsukasa, and supports him, since he does not know much. It is said that Giftias only have approximately nine years to function.

MICHIRU Kinushima, Tsukasa's senior at work. Although they have no age difference, she teaches Tsukasa as his work superior.

Zack, a Giftia paired with MICHIRU. His appearance is that of a high-class young boy, but he has the power to complete all work smoothly.

Yoshiyuki Fujiwara (GJ Club, Engaged to the Unidentified) will direct the project at Dogakobo (Yuruyuri - Happy Go Lily, Laughing Under the Clouds). Chiaki Nakajima (Yuruyuri - Happy Go Lily, Love Lab) will adapt original character designs by okiura (Infinite Stratos). Naotaka Hayashi (Robotics;Notes, Steins;Gate, Chaos;HEAd) is credited as the project's original creator and he will pen the scripts for the "story of meetings and partings."

Thanks to Kagayaki for the embedded video.

Update: Naotaka Hayashi's credits corrected. Thanks, Chipp12
