Despite the utter cliche that amnesia represents, I'm sold on that, at least until I see a trailer or something. Political intrigue > schoolgirls' knickers, which seems to be the biggest plot device in anime these days.

News updated. The synopsis is so random but it's not my fault. The Japanese text doesn't make sense either.

I'm going to look forward to this on the basis that the Noitamina block delivers more often than not. I would really like to know what it's about though...

The scan doesn't tell me much about the anime at all. Is this the same thing as the game, Far East of Eden? It doesn't look like it though.

I don't think this is related to Sugiura Hinako's manga with the same title. The notice says "an original work by Kamiyama Kenji".

Oh? Seems that it's my bad then.

Could be pretty neat, never heard of the series before but hey, Kamiyama and Umino sounds like a pretty sexy combo.
