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. 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.

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

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (11/12 eps)
While this anime really isn't the best, it is quite clear that it could be enjoyable for kids who don't want a deep or complicated storyline. It is enough to entertain a bored child but has almost nothing more to offer.

This anime has a large cast of characters; none of which have any personality whatsoever. There are too many characters with not enough time spent on each of them. I cannot recall any of the characters names and I will most likely forget about all of them once the spring season starts.

The animation isn't amazing either, it's satisfactory at best.

There seams to be a minimal ...

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 ...
