Storyline

In the not too distant future androids have come into common usage. Taking the androids for granted, humans treat them as if they were common everyday tools, while on the other hand, some people empathize with androids due to their human-like appearance (save for a digital ring floating above their heads). This has become a social problem and these people are frowned upon as a result. Rikuo, one who has taken androids for granted for his entire life, one day discovers that Sammy, his home android, has been acting strangely and finds a strange phrase recorded in her activity log. He, along with his friend Masaki, traces Sammy's footsteps and come upon an unusual café. Written by ameershaikh52

I didn't know what to expect
21 August 2016 | by WebbehSee all my reviews

It was the first anime of this kind that I ever watched. And needless to say, it's definitely not the last one.

As I said in the title, I didn't have any expectations on the series, someone recommended me alongside Breaking Bad, Spirited Away and a few other titles.

The story itself isn't hard to understand. Without revealing any plot point, it describes the bond between humans and humanoids, happening in not-so-distant future.

The animation is neat, very pleasant to watch, although sometimes slightly slow paced.

I didn't expect to be touched by this story as much as I was. You understand every character's feelings, history and emotions. Each and every one of them has been given some work and some thought.

There is no point in explaining it further : this anime is surprising and worth the watch.

I don't think a 10/10 would be too much, but some slight, subjective details prevent me from giving it to this series. But it absolutely deserves a 9/10, without any hesitation.
