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 ...M@x...

An Excellent Head First Dive Into A Surreal World of Amazingness
15 December 2012 | by ohwoahitsmeSee all my reviews

Well where to being.... how about with... BAM!!!! This movie is beyond fantastic and is a great exploration into our own humanity and how things do indeed change over time!!!

I first randomly discovered this movie on an anime movie forum that specializes in obscure movies that most people outside of Japan will never here about or see. Boy was I sure glad after checking it out. This has quickly become my go to favorite anime movie that I have seen to this day!

The movie is very surreal in every way and becomes very believable to a creepy point. Although long and at sometimes somber and slow it completely suites the idea behind the film and doesn't hurt the film in any way but actually adds to it and makes it even just that much better! The movie is based around the concept of human emotion and understanding. A very strong moral statement on prejudice views and beliefs, which in the case of this movie, is aimed towards androids.

In a world where androids are slaves equivalent to butlers, and are strictly scolded for having any sort of feelings or wants that is besides what their owners want. Even treated as appliances, but slowly our main character discovers there might actually be the presence of feelings and a soul inside these androids that they hide and only let out in front of each other.

Touching on some very serious tones this movie delivers some amazing moral heartfelt vibes, along with a few comedic moments here and there that are quite a laugh or two.

As far as the art goes, the movie delivers nothing but amazing outstanding visuals in every sense of the meaning. This movie is by far a must see plain and simple!!! Can not wait to get a glimpse of some more amazing work by this crew of cast and director/writer!!!
