Eighteen-year-old Tsukasa Mizugaki has failed his college entrance exams, but after pulling some strings, he manages to land a job at the Sion Artificial Intelligence Corporation. SAI Corp is responsible for the creation of "Giftias"—highly advanced androids which are almost indiscernible from normal humans. However, unlike humans, Giftias have a maximum lifespan of 81,920 hours, or around nine years and four months. Terminal Service One, the station Tsukasa was assigned to, is responsible for collecting Giftias that have met their expiration date, before they lose their memories and become hostile.

Promptly after joining Terminal Service One, Tsukasa is partnered with a beautiful Giftia named Isla. She is a Terminal Service veteran and considered the best in Giftia retrievals, contrary to her petite figure and placid nature. Time is fleeting though, and Tsukasa must come to terms with his feelings for Isla before her time is up. No matter how much someone desires it, nothing lasts forever.

The first time I saw Plastic Memories, I decided to watch it because of Isla. In my opinion, girls with white hair in an anime are very beautiful and stunning.

At first I thought this story would be about action adventure when the world was getting sophisticated (cyberpunk). but it turned out to be much different than I expected.

the core of the synopsis is the story of Tsukasa's journey trying to give beautiful memories to griftias (an advanced technology that makes an artificial soul can be inserted into a robot so that the robot has human-like consciousness) named Isla before she died (actually the robot ...

Mixed Feelings
Plastic Memories has one of the best opening episodes, bringing us into a really promising world. It brought the themes of bereavement, and set up the ideas of conflicts arising from people seeking to avoid that pain. I cried on the first episode. Unfortunately, the full series is the biggest waste of potential ever.

The anime quickly switches from a sci-fi drama to a rom com. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but the romantic elements are really hurt by the fact that the characters are very flat and setup for the romance between Tsukasa and Isla is unnatural and perverted. Tsukasa has an unhealthy ...

There is so much wrong with Plastic Memories that it should never have been created. It is literally about a dude who falls in love with a midget robot who also happens to be a minor.

Story 1/10 : The anime has no real plot progression because everything is pushed back to the beginning after the last episode. The show tries to have the audience learn some messages and themes through the experiences of Tsukasa and Isla, but Tsukasa is this basic dude who has no reason to be heavily impacted by these messages. "Giftias" are the focal point of the sci-fi setting, but they ...
