3 Otome Anime Adaptations Are Leaving Crunchyroll on August 1, 2020

otome anime amnesia norn9 uta no prince sama

When it comes to games, it isn’t terribly uncommon to see ones made in Japan get anime or manga adaptations. This even happens with otome games. However, it will be more difficult to watch three of these otome anime adaptations easily, as Crunchyroll’s list of August 1, 2020 removes includes Amnesia, Norn9, and Uta no Prince-sama. All three shows are among 77 Sentai Filmworks offerings that are being removed from Crunchyroll. [Thanks, Anime News Network!]

Amnesia is a retelling of the Otomate and Idea Factory visual novel about a young woman who wakes up with a suspicious case of amnesia and a fairy friend named Orion who cautions her about letting people catch on that something is awry. In the game, players have to hide that something is wrong from her boyfriend, who could be Ikki, Kent, Shin, Toma, or a secret character. It appeared outside Japan on the PlayStation Vita, PC, and mobile devices as Amnesia: Memories. (In Japan, it is also available on the PlayStation Portable.) The anime adaptation is 12 episodes long.

Norn9 is another Idea Factory and Otomate game turned into an anime series. It follows a group of young people with supernatural abilities living on the Norn9 ship and trying to make the world a better, more peaceful place. The game appeared on the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation Vita in Japan, but only the Vita version was localized as Norn9: Var Commons. This anime is also 12 episodes long.

Uta no Prince-sama’s game is a slightly different take on an otome visual novel, as it involves rhythm segments too. The anime’s story is fairly close to the basic story, as it follows a young woman who’s a new student at a music academy. She wants to write songs and gets a chance to work with some of her classmates that are aspiring idols. Only one game in the series, a spin-off, has been released worldwide: Uta no Prince-sama: Shining Live for mobile devices.
