Plastic Memories also referred to as Plameno, is one of the first anime series to be adapted from a manga or light novel. This unique anime is renowned for its stunning visuals, relaxing atmosphere, endearing characters, and heavy doses of tragic drama. Although it also fits into the sci-fi genre, the show is primarily a sweet and jovial slice-of-life comedy with lots of romance. The anime, which was created by Studio Doga Kobo, had 13 episodes and ran from April 5, 2015, until June 28, 2015.
With the distinction between man and machine becoming increasingly hazy, the anime played with the idea of integrating humans and technology, a subject that has generated countless discussions and disagreements. It changed the definition of what it means to be a human. Plastic Memories’ above-average animation and art elevated the overall experience over what it might have been.
Plastic Memories Season 2 Release Date
Since the last scene of the first season, people have been waiting for news of the show’s revival. The creators of the show have not yet made it clear to viewers whether or not there will be a Plastic Memories Season 2. Since it is an original anime, there is no source material from which we can anticipate the next season. Furthermore, given that the first season came to a satisfying conclusion, there may not be a second. However, since the show has not yet been canceled, the wait is worthwhile.

Plastic Memories Season 1 Recap
The story takes place in the near future, in a world populated by androids called “Giftias.” These Giftias, like everything else in this universe, have a finite lifespan; they have about ten years of usable life before being decommissioned, at which point their memories are permanently lost. For machines, erasing memories is akin to death. They also have emotions, just like people. Now let’s meet our human protagonist, Tsukasa, an 18-year-old boy who gets involved with our android protagonist, the Giftias, Isla.
Tsukasa receives an offer to work for the SAI Corporation, a company that collects Giftias that are nearing the end of their lives and eventually scraps them, with Isla as her assistant. Their boss instructs the two of them to form a team, and as a result, they begin working and socializing together as well as falling in love. Whether they are someone who won’t allow their Giftia to be retrieved or someone who despises their Giftia, even the story’s supporting characters are incredibly well-developed.
Plastic Memories Season 2 Story
We saw Isla’s memories being lost in the previous episode, which means she passes away. We might witness Tsukasa bring her and her forgotten memories back in the upcoming season. Alternatively, we might witness Tsukasa adjusting to his new existence without her lover, Isla. Nothing is certain because there is no manga to compare it to, despite what it might be.
