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!

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, read more

Look, I wanted a cute anime girl series with a ridiculous premise. And I got it. But that's basically a summary of everything remotely good about this anime.


Take one look at my profile and you'll know I love a good episodic, minion-of-the -day magical girl. But they have to have some motivation, some reason for existence, outside of just wanting to be evil. And this series delivers absolutely nothing of interest on that end.

I also love a good wacky premise, and while the idea of removing anything remotely Otaku related from the memories of people in various universes, the universes themselves do little to read more

Pastel Memories is one hell of a cheese ride. It caught my attention when I got a used issue of Megumi magazine (only because it had a BanDori insert, but I gave that to my friend), I found Pastel Memories being promo'd as both a mobile game and a anime-spin off. Its art for that game is much nicer in a sense, but the premise is ratter "standard". At least the colors stand out and probaly live up to its "pastel" from the title name.

STORY - Not the grandest. If anything it borrowed the "world/monster of the week" formula from typical child-friendly anime like read more

In the beginning I thought that Pastel Memories was the Akanesasu Shoujo of this season, oh boy how I was wrong.

Like Akanesasu Shoujo, and a lot of other animes of this kind, Pastel Memories have magical girls who are at the same kind of group and go to other realities to save the day from a creature who creates slimes or whatever kind of minor monster the episode needs. But the resemblance stops right there.
If I have to name it Pastel Memories would be: Akanesasu Shoujo but everything is 10 times garbage. And look, Akanesasu Shoujo was not a good anime.

This anime is pathetic, everything read more
