The TV anime series Amnesia is created by studio Brain's Base, based on an otome visual novel game (for female players) released by Idea Factory for the PSP in 2011. The game's story begins on the morning of August 1, when the protagonist wakes up and discovers she has absolutely no memories of the past. A boy appears before her, and he introduces himself as a "spirit" named Orion. The protagonist struggles to regain her memories under the guidance of Orion. She then gets a phone call, but she does not recognize the name on her mobile phone screen. She meets her apparent "boyfriend", despite not knowing his face. The anime is airing in Japan from January 8, 2013.
