Sentai Filmworks Licenses Pastel Memories Anime
posted on by Karen Ressler
Sentai Filmworks announced on Friday that it has licensed the television anime of FuRyu's Pastel Memories smartphone game in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Scandinavia. The company plans to stream the series as a simulcast and release it on home video.
Yasuyuki Shinozaki (Shuffle!, Xam'd: Lost Memories, And you thought there is never a girl online? episode director) is directing the anime at project No.9. Tsuyoshi Tamai (Strike Witches, Ladies versus Butlers!, Bikini Warriors) is in charge of series composition. Shin'ya Segawa (Garakowa -Restore the World-) is adapting Nero Nashiki's original character designs for animation.
The "otaku girls" role-playing game takes place "a little bit in the future in 20XX." Akihabara, which was once called "the otaku holy land," is now in decline after otaku culture itself has declined. Players take on the role of a manager of one of the few remaining "otaku shops." The manager helps to "raise" various talented otaku girls, and together, players and the girls battle a "virus" that is infecting the world of various works, while also retrieving people's lost "memories."
FuRyu released the game in October 2017. A manga adaptation of the game will debut in the February 2019 issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Alive magazine on December 27. Kairaku Kano is drawing the manga.
