A subtle sci-fi anime
28 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Set in the not to distant future in a world where most households possess androids that look human to do the domestic chores some people believe others are getting too close to their androids. Rikuo is a high school student who possesses an android called Sammy; she can do basic chores but it is soon clear that she does not possess conversational skills. While she may look human it is clear to everybody that isn't due to the halo above her head. One day Rikuo finds something strange in Sammy's activity log; since she is fitted with a GPS he can track down where she went. He investigates with his friend Masaki and discovers 'Time of Eve' a café where it is the house rule that humans and androids are to be treated equally. At they are puzzled because the android they followed in no longer has a halo, something unthinkable outside. They feel a bit uncomfortable but soon that are chatting to Akiko, a young girl who clearly isn't bothered by the anonymous androids. It isn't until the next day they learn that she is in fact an android herself; it appears that androids have personalities just as complex as our own, they just feel compelled to hide this fact in the outside world. As they continue to visit they meet a range of customers including an old man with a young child, his grand daughter perhaps, a couple of young lovers and an android that looks anything but human. They also meet Nagi who runs the establishment and is always friendly but strictly enforces the equality rule. Sammy turns up there too and here she is just like everybody else; nothing like how she behaves at home and no halo. We later learn that Masaki's father works for the Robot Ethics Committee, a group wanting to shut down places like 'Time of Eve', will Masaki help his father or will he protect his new friends?

This was an interesting series, it was only six episodes long and the first five of those were only fifteen minutes long but in that short time it managed to tell a story that was both heart-warming and interesting. The characters were all a delight to watch and until it was revealed it was heard to guess who was human and who was an android; even the characters don't know which of their group is human in some cases. The backgrounds were stunningly created and the characters well animated. I'd certainly recommend this to anybody looking for a science fiction anime which isn't full of giant robots, explosions or space battles... if you watch the first episode and don't like it you've only wasted fifteen minutes but if you are like me as soon as that episode ends you'll be watching the next and so on till the end.

These comments are based on watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.
