Set for release on June 3rd, 2014, Sentai Filmworks is bringing out the Blu-ray and DVD releases of Amnesia, a twelve episode series that aired in early 2013. We got our copy in a bit early for review, which you can see our menu screen check here, and as we’ve progressed on the release we’ve found a significant glitch to alert buyers towards. We notified the folks at Sentai to investigate it earlier today as well, but it appears that the sixth episode is missing a subtitle track. Each episode comes with two subtitle tracks; one that is a sign and song track which is used for English language viewers so they know what some text in the show is about as well as providing lyrics for the songs, while the second has all of that plus the dialogue subtitles. The sixth episode is missing the full dialogue subtitles track unfortunately.
Plot concept: She runs through the flaming building seeking escape. She struggles in the water, desperate to keep afloat. She wakes in the hospital, with no knowledge of how she got there or memory of who she was. People she doesn’t know come to visit her, but only the one whom no one else can see, the spirit boy who calls himself Olion, seems to understand what has happened to her, and he tells her not to let anyone know of her amnesia.
As the Heroine struggles to recall her past and connect the random recollections in her mind to form memories, one thing seems sure: time is no longer a constant, and the date of August 1st – the day she keeps waking up in the hospital – is somehow significant. So are each of the people she meets, though the stories that link her to them seem to shift like sands in an emptying hourglass. Will she be able put the pieces of the puzzle together, and what will she see if it becomes complete?
