Robotica * Robotics is a short - only 10 minutes long OVA from the outstanding director Soubi Yamamoto.

For such a short anime, Robotica is really amazing. It looks very very beautiful, the characters are simple but interesting and it deals with really important things. "What is love?" is the question what the characters try to solve.

This OVA has only 3 characters. Two robots; Haru and Natsu and their new owner Masa-san. Natsu is afraid of being abandoned again. Haru and Natsu are trying to find out the meaning of love. What is it? And can robots love?

And a few more words about the art. I read more

For a ten minute long short, this really packs a punch. Right to the gut. By punch I mean a stab and by gut I mean your heart. Really. It still hurts when I think about this.

It starts off simply enough. Two abandoned robot boys and a surly professor who has taken them in. 'What is love?' Haru asks. Immediately the phrase 'baby don't hurt me...don't hurt me...no more' pops into your head.

Goodness how you wish that came true and that this OVA did not totally destroy you in the most painful way possible.

It's a common enough premise for a story, an AI who wants read more

Yamamoto Soubi has done it again! She has found a way to take two seemingly "normal" characters and create a complexity and depth within them which is unprecedented and which takes true skill to accomplish.

The story is centered around two robots who try to become more human-like by trying to understand the true meaning of love. "An emotion which only humans can feel/understand". The anime takes you on what I feel to be reminiscent of a beautiful poetic journey and deals with themes of love, suicide, acceptance and humanity itself. It will make you reflect on life and is one of those animes which read more

'I am Haru, he is Natsu... and we are Robots'

This 10 minutes anime is possibly the best I have ever seen. After watching almost all of her work, I have fallen head-over-heels in love with Soubi Yamamoto's work. It holds such depth and raw beauty.

Story:: 10

Robotica*Robotics starts with two little robots, Haru and Natsu, sitting on an old couch with a sign, Junk attached. Then we meet Masa, the Shady Middle Aged Man, and he asks the two what they would do if he killed himself.

From there things grow and we have one simple question we must answer by the. What is love? read more
