Plastic Memories

30 minutes

Plastic Memories takes place in a city in the near future, in which humans live alongside androids that look exactly like humans and have human emotion and memory. SAI Corp, the leading android production company, has introduced the Giftia, an advanced android model with the most human-like qualities of any model. The lifespan of a Giftia is 81,920 hours (roughly nine years and four months), and if they pass their expiration date, it causes personality disintegration, memory loss and outbreaks of violence. As a result, the Terminal Services are established with the duty of retrieving Giftias who are close to the end of their lifespans from their owners, and erasing the Giftias' memories. To perform this job, the Terminal Service employees work in teams consisting of a human (called a "spotter") and a Giftia (called a "marksman"). The story follows the work and life of such a team in SAI Corp's Terminal Service One office, the human protagonist Tsukasa Mizugaki and a Giftia named Isla, who is near the end of her own lifespan.

It is the last day of Isla's lifespan and she and Tsukasa decide to first spend it by reading entries in her diary. They then spend the morning cleaning up their dormitory room and then taking a bath. They then head over to the office, where they take care of Isla's herbs and she leaves notes for the other employees. They are approached by an early Kazuki, who teases Isla for one last time. The two then decide to spend the day's remaining hours at the amusement park, which they enjoy to their hearts' content. Eventually, they stand at Isla's favorite bench, where she describes how she always observed the emotions of the park's many visitors and how contented they would be at the end of the day in bringing their happy memories home with them. Then, as the park closes, Tsukasa and Isla convince the operator to let them ride the Ferris wheel one last time after closing hours. There, they take turns describing what they love about each other, and Isla finally admits she loved the way Tsukasa held back his sadness and smiled, despite her worry over that characteristic. She then hands him her deactivation ring, saying that she wanted him to be the one to do it. Tsukasa begins crying, and Isla notes that it was the first time she ever saw him cry. He then puts the ring on, expresses his hope that she would be reunited with the person they cherished, and kisses Isla as her time expires. As he carries her to the vehicle, he is met by Kazuki, who thanks him for being there for her, which causes him to break down in tears. The other Terminal Service employees read Isla's letters, in which she thanks them for all the memories she had of them. In the epilogue, Tsukasa takes the same elevator where he met Isla and muses what it would be like if his lifespan was predetermined, concluding afterward that he would live that life to the fullest. Nine months later, he returns from a training course to resume work with Terminal Service No. 1, and is introduced to his new Giftia.

s1e1 The First Partner
April 5, 2015
On the first day of his new job, Tsukasa Mizugaki rushes into an elevator, where he meets a girl staring vacantly out of the window with a sad expression. He goes to Terminal Service No. 1, which is one of the offices in SAI Corp, where he is taught about Giftia. Normally, humans and Giftia work in pairs to collect expired Giftia, but Kazuki Kuwanomi, who is in charge of handling new employees, was not informed that Tsukasa was coming and thus did not prepare a Giftia partner for him. Isla, the Giftia who met Tsukasa in the elevator previously, comes around to serve tea to the office, and is appointed to partner up with Tsukasa, despite of Kazuki's objection. The two are led out by Tsukasa's trainer Michiru Kinushima and her partner Zack; Zack retrieves a Giftia, as a demonstration of their job for Tsukasa, and Michiru tells Tsukasa that they are under legal obligation to collect Giftias before they expire. The group embarks on a subsequent job in which Isla is given a major role, but she fails the job, and in doing so causes a number of problems for the team. The team is then assigned a mission to retrieve Nina, a child-type Giftia owned by an old woman named Chizu Shirohana. After multiple tries, Isla is unable to persuade Chizu to talk to them. She finally manages to win a chance to talk with Nina. Chizu overhears the conversation between them, during which Nina says that she feels it would be best if she is retrieved by the team to avoid doing harm to Chizu after her expiration. Chizu realizes she had not considered Nina's feelings in the matter and allows the team to retrieve her, but not before thanking her. Nina is then sent to the Terminal Service, where Giftia are gathered at the end of their lifespan.
