Plastic Memories takes place in a city in the near future, in which humans live alongside androids that look exactly like humans and have human emotion and memory. SAI Corp, the leading android production company, has introduced the Giftia, an advanced android model with the most human-like qualities of any model. The lifespan of a Giftia is 81,920 hours (roughly nine years and four months), and if they pass their expiration date, it causes personality disintegration, memory loss, and outbreaks of violence. As a result, the Terminal Services are established with the duty of retrieving Giftias who are close to the end of their lifespans from their owners, and erasing the Giftias' memories. To perform this job, the Terminal Service employees work in teams consisting of a human (called a "spotter") and a Giftia (called a "marksman"). The story follows the work and life of such a team in SAI Corp's Terminal Service One office, the human protagonist Tsukasa Mizugaki and a Giftia named Isla, who is near the end of her own lifespan.

Tsukasa Mizugaki (水柿 ツカサ, Mizugaki Tsukasa)
Voiced by: Yasuaki TakumiTsukasa is the 18-year-old male protagonist. After failing his college entrance exams due to medical problems, he eventually gets a job through his father on Terminal Service One, although he initially does not know what they do. He is assigned as Isla's spotter and soon becomes attached to her, unaware that she is at the end of her lifespan. When he finally finds out, he refuses to abandon Isla and continues to be her partner. He has developed feelings for Isla ever since their first encounter, but only realizes it during their partnership.
Plastic Memories Quick Review Plastic Memories The Catholic Geeks
Isla (アイラ, Aira)
Voiced by: Sora AmamiyaIsla, the female protagonist, is a Giftia who has a childish appearance with twintails, has a tendency to trip and fall on objects, and causes those around her to feel the fleetingness of life. She is said to be a veteran at the department and was once partnered with Kazuki as her marksman. After that, all she does is serve tea at SAI Corp, until Tsukasa arrives, to which she becomes his marksman and is put back in the field again, despite having less than 2,000 hours until the end of her lifespan. She eventually develops feelings for Tsukasa.
Michiru Kinushima (絹島 ミチル, Kinushima Michiru)
Voiced by: Chinatsu AkasakiA 17-year-old employee who works at SAI Terminal Service One and is Tsukasa's superior by one year. She seems to be developing feelings for Tsukasa, but refuses to admit it. She was raised by a Giftia, so she empathizes with the "android children", people who were raised by Giftia or other androids. She had tried to protect her guardian from being retrieved, resulting in him becoming a "Wanderer", and he was later shot down by members of the private security firm R. Security, resulting in her longstanding hatred of them. This experience has since resulted in her joining Terminal Service One.
Zack (ザック, Zakku)
Voiced by: Sayuri YahagiA Giftia with the appearance of a high-class young boy. He is Michiru's marksman. He loves to tease people around him and reveal their innermost secrets.
Kazuki Kuwanomi (桑乃実 カヅキ, Kuwanomi Kazuki)
Voiced by: Megumi ToyoguchiTsukasa's boss at SAI Terminal Service One. She was once Isla's spotter and is highly protective of her former partner, being downright scary to her coworkers. She seems to be weak to alcohol, and has an amputated leg that was the result of an attempt to retrieve Michiru's father three years ago.
Constance (コンスタンス, Konsutansu)
Voiced by: Satoshi HinoA Giftia who works at SAI Terminal Service One. He is Kazuki's current marksman and is known for his gentle personality.
Yasutaka Hanada (縹 ヤスタカ, Hanada Yasutaka)
Voiced by: Kenjiro TsudaA veteran employee at SAI Terminal Service One, where he has been working for ten years. He has a casual attitude and a lack of motivation, which is unusual for someone with his experience at the Terminal Service.
Sherry (シェリー, Sherī)
Voiced by: AimiA Giftia who is Yasutaka's marksman. She has a serious personality and the appearance of a career woman. She tends to get annoyed at her partner's attitude and that he sometimes skips work. When angered, she can be as scary as Kazuki.
Ren Kawarake (土器 レン, Kawarake Ren)
Voiced by: Shinnosuke OgamiAn employee at Terminal Service One. He is described by Zack as a "pencil pusher".
Eru Miru (海松 エル, Miru Eru)
Voiced by: Sumire UesakaAn engineer in the Giftia maintenance team, who has been on the job for only two years. She is also an "android geek" who particularly dotes on Isla. Her friend, a Giftia named Olivia, was retrieved years ago, but had her OS replaced and is now living a new life as Terminal Service No. 3 marksman Andie, much to Eru's initial dismay.
Takao Yamanobe (山野辺 タカオ, Yamanobe Takao)
Voiced by: Nobuo TobitaThe section manager of SAI Terminal Service One. He originally had a job in sales, and as a result, he doesn't have any actual field experience with his current job. He seems to have trouble communicating with his daughter.
Mikijiro Tetsuguro (鉄黒 ミキジロウ, Tetsuguro Mikijirō)
Voiced by: Mitsuaki HoshinoEru's supervisor and the head of the Unit Testing Room, which is designed to measure the physical skills of a Giftia.
