This is not rare but another anime again tries to recreate real life locations on their show. These pictures was originally posted on reddit, in which a user compared scenes spotted on the television series to real life places in Singapore.

Here are some of the places in Singapore that are featured in the show.

Plastic Memories is a science-fiction series, set in the future, where androids that look exactly like humans begin to spread across the world. These androids have emotional, human-like qualities. However, due to limitations in technology, these androids have a service life and once that life is over, the android will go through technical changes. As such, a terminating service is created to retrieve all the androids that are nearing, or have gone, past their service life.

With Singapore’s high-rise buildings, modern infrastructure, and their nation’s plan to become a Smart Nation, this depiction hits quite close to their home.
