Dogakobo has just given us a preview of the upcoming TV anime series, Plastic Memories. So far, the synopsis is quite sparse, but so far we know it is set in a near future and focuses on a slice of life type story of a female robot themed around “encounters and separations”. An android manufacturer, SA Corporation developed a very lifelike android known as Giftia but met with an unexpected ethical issue when the androids were nearing the end of their service life. A new employee, Tsukasa Mizugaki teams up with one such android, Giftia Isla to retrieve the “dying androids”.
