"Sepia Tears is a love story.

There are no robots or vampires, unfortunately. It's about a high schooler named Mark, an ordinary protagonist with a secret in his past that he tries very hard to forget. It's also about a girl named Myra who knows more about him than any stranger should and reminds him uncannily of his past.

Together, they search for a storybook romance and realize that love comes in many shades.''

"Mark, you do know what this means, don't you? This means that you have yet to experience modern Japanese visual culture in all its glory! Sure you've found yourself taking a peek at Rin's DVD collection at some point in the past sixteen years. Haven't you ever felt discontented with the path the story takes?"
