The story takes place in the future, the city of Akihabara. It was once called a "Holy land of otaku" but now has become an office town. Otaku culture has declined, people are losing memories of anime and manga, and only a few specialty shops remain open.

What supports the world of creative works are "memories" of manga and anime in people's minds, but when the world of the creative work is destroyed by a virus, it disappears from everyone's memory and is erased from the material world.

12 girls working in a small shop in a corner of Akihabara are fighting the virus to protect everyone's important memories about their favorite manga and anime, and return Akihabara to the way it was before!

Pastel Memories is one hell of a cheese ride.

Preliminary (6/12 eps)

…probably this unique word resumes the anime.
Yes, the anime is very repetitive, seriously, basically, every episode is a manga infected by a virus, and they save the manga, but it is in every episode.
In the beginning, the anime looks very cool, but it is only in episode 1 and 2, as I said, the other episodes are the second episode but in a different manga.
In my opinion, the art of the anime is very beautiful (this is one of the reasons that decided to watch it), and I like this style, but probably this is the unique good thing in this anime, and ...

NO...JUST, NO. Not anymore.

Based on the Japan-only mobile game by FuRyu, repetition is the name of this anime. Subpar is the quality of this anime. Boring is the feeling of this anime. Overall, this anime plays the joke of parodies on you, with the endless amount of references from past popular series in all genres, and in its entirety, it is what we call "Dead-on-Arrival" (or DOA) from the get-go.

We all know Akihabara is the main city for otakus all around the world, with all the resources and memorabilia, so what happens if some sort of virus were to make our otaku dreams disappear? Well, ...
