Discotek Media acquired the license for a show that many felt just wasn’t going to get picked up at this stage with Kaiba back in 2017. They’re now expanding some of its availability to new services and one of those is the AsianCrush service where they’ve now brought the series to Amazon Prime here. It’s available for free streaming for Prime members but you can also buy episodes for 99 cents a pop in standard definition as well as the full season for just $10. Streaming availability is limited to the US and Canada. Directed by Masaaki Yuasa with Nobuatke Ito on character designs, the series was animated by Madhouse.
The Japanese cast includes Houko Kuwashima as Kaiba, Mamiko Noto as Neiro, Romi Park as Popo, Hisao Egawa as Vanilla and Wasabi Mizuta as Hyohyo.
The series features the opening song “Never” by Seira Kagami and the closing theme song “Carry Me Away” by Seira Kagami.
Siren Visual previously licensed and released the series in Australia.
Plot Concept: A boy with no name awakens with a hole through his chest, a strange marking on his belly, and no memories. The one link to his past is a locket containing a picture of a girl whose name he does not know. Within moments he meets Popo, who unlike the memoryless boy has a purpose. Through Popo, the boy learns that where he is a body without memory, in this world there are many who are only memories with no body. The rich harvest the choice bodies, leaving only the dregs for those down below. And yet even though he has no memories, there are many who seem to want his life. How does he fit into this world where not even memories might be real?
