Default Re: Latest Anime you watched? - Part 1

Time of Eve.

Its a short 6 episode series set in the not too distant future, where humans have become almost reliant on androids in their day to day lives. They're treated as appliances and looked upon with indifference, despite the majority of them looking identical to flesh and blood people, and any close relationship between human and robot is seen almost as taboo. Time of Eve is an underground cafe that has only one rule: there's no discrimination between humans and robots. Androids visiting deactivate their status rings when inside, which is a holographic halo that circles an android's head identifying them as robots. It draws heavily on Asimov and his Three Laws of Robotics, but delves a lot deeper into what makes a person a person and the relationships between man and AI than say I, Robot did. It's a really great piece of science fiction anime, i hope it gets a second series that it leaves itself open for, but it can easily live in its own.
