About La Mémoire
The story takes place in the near future, where scientists and innovators have finally discovered how to make a near-perfect android to help humans with their daily necessities. At first, they were only produced to help people in their homes. However, they slowly but surely they began to penetrate the industrial sector as workers. Soon, they were already replacing humans. Many were satisfied, but many were not. People began protesting against the use of androids in the industrial sector, resulting in the destruction of androids here and there by angry protesters. This caused severe damage to the industrial stock market. For the first time in human history, human rights won over corrupt leaders, as there was nothing they could do to suppress the protests of the people.
Today, androids are limited to performing housework or helping elderly people, focusing only on serving humans. Even though laws were passed prohibiting the use of androids beyond certain situations, there are still many people who attempt to use broken androids for activities like manufacturing weapons, dealing in the black market, and other illegal activities. Thus, the world isn’t at peace as everyone dreamed about.
La Mémoire Synopsis
After Inazuma Kazuya lost his mother due to an unknown reason, his father, who is a renowned scientist, took Kazuya to another city. Before Kazuya left the city, he promised to play with his friend Kotobuki Risu for the last time. However, he find Risu killed in a car accident right in front of his eyes. Losing both his mother and his friend brings Kazuya trauma, as later he always blamed himself for what happened and felt powerless to do anything. Years passed, and Kazuya decided to move back to Ringo City while enrolling in a private high school, Kiyoku High School. He determined that he was going to find peace for himself, thinking that he couldn’t live with guilt forever. He lives in a mixed dorm and made new friends: Asami Mao, an energetic yet caring girl; and a mysterious girl talented in music, Kamome Saaya.
For a time, Kazuya’s life went smoothly. Slowly but surely, he began to come to terms with all that had happened. He started to make peace with himself. But things turn upside down as Kazuya sees his supposedly dead childhood friend. His hand suddenly shivers and his face turns white. All the memories about his childhood friend, accompanied by the guilt, sweep over him like a torrent in a deep sea. Kazuya then approaches the girl and abruptly asks her about everything that he knows about her. Much to Kazuya’s surprise, the girl doesn’t know him. She only introduces herself as Kotobuki Risu. Her voice, her crimson-red eyes, her gesture, and everything else is just the same. Kazuya is positive that she is Risu herself. But why doesn’t she remember him?
