Ushinawareta Mirai o Motomete anime green-lit
The staff of the PC game brand Trumple announced on Sunday that an anime adaptation of their adult game Ushinawareta Mirai o Motomete (À la recherche du futur perdu or Searching for the Lost Future) has been green-lit.
The story is set one autumn at the beginning of the 21st century in the Uchihama area. Uchihama Academy is growing by leaps and bounds. With the construction of a new school building, there will be one last General Club Festival at the old building that is slated to be closed. The students vow to go all out to make this final cultural festival a success.
The Astronomy Club of the protagonist Sō Akiyama is filled with the big names on campus. Just before the festival on October 1, the club receives a request from the student executive committee to calm the uneasiness among the students. There are reports of ghost sightings, accidents, sleeping sickness, and other mysterious incidents at the old building. When Yui Furukawa, a quiet girl who transfered late into the school, appears before Sō, the gears of fate slowly begin to move.
Trumple released the game for Windows in 2010. Ryo Ohta, Kenji Saitou, and Masaki Sawa wrote the screenplay, and Kurehito Misaki and Shinobu Kuroya designed the characters. (Kuroya drew the illustration above.) Here are the opening movie and the second commercial movie for the game:
