Kaze No Namae Wa Amnesia
(A Wind Named Amnesia)

© 1993 Hideyuki Kikuchi / Asahi Sonorama / Right Stuf Office / Japan Home Video
© 1994 US Manga Corps

Color / Stereo / 80 minutes / Japanese Language / English Subtitles


No one could have prepared for it; it came silently, sweeping across the earth. And everyone it touched forgot... everything. Who they were, how to speak, how to use all the implements of modern civilization. The amnesia wind swept away all of mankind's knowledge and thousands of years of human civilization vanished in an instant.

Now, two years later, a young man wnaders the landscape of an America reduced to barbarism. Miraculously re-educated after the disaster, he searches for the true heart of mankind... and for those responsible for stealing its memories. Accompanied by a mysterious woman who was somehow spared the wind's damage, he embarks on a coast-to-coast journey of danger and discovery pursued by a relentless killing machine.

Featuring the collaborative efforts of Kazuo Yamazaki (Urusei Yatsura 4: Lum the Forver), Hideyuki Kikuchi (Demon City Shinjuku), Taro Rin (Harmagedon), and Yoshiaki Kawajiri (Demon City Shinjuku and Wicked City), A Wind Named Amnesia is an action-packed mystery set in a world gone mad where humans, reduced to the leve of cavemen, struggle to survive in the ruins of the modern world.
