The movie version is the complete version of the story. It includes all the OVAs and completely new scenes giving details on the background story of some characters.

Sometime in future Japan, androids have been involved in every aspect of peoples lives. One day, upon checking his android's behavioral log, Rikuo, a student, noticed his android's returning times have been odd recently. With his friend Masaki, they found out the place where his android, Sammy, have been visiting: a small cafe called Eve no Jikan where androids and human are not seen as different. Upon talking with the "people" in the cafe and discovering more of Sammy's behavior, Rikuo changed his view about androids and treat them as friends rather than tools. At the same time, elsewhere in Japan, the Ethics committee is trying to impose policies to reduce the involvement and use of androids in society.

Eve no Jikan is a rarity among anime/anime-movies. It innovates in many ways including first being broadcast entirely as web episodes as well as using entirely 3D backgrounds with 2D characters superimposed in front. But beyond these new techniques is a story that is masterfully executed and themes to keep the philosophically inclined at awe.

Eve no Jikan is about a futuristic world in which androids are commonplace and assist humans with tasks ranging from cooking to driving. Do these androids have feelings? Can there be "love" between a human and android? One might want to categorize this with shows such as To Heart ~ Memories read more

Do you like theories about human-robot social relations? Do you wonder what it would be like to have a robot that developed human sensations? Then, Time of EVE might be for you. If you're looking for something more than that, steer clear. This is more a romantic slice-of-life piece than a sci-fi flick, and even calling it romance might be a bit of a stretch. The concept behind this anime is indeed noteworthy, but unfortunately, most of your curiosity will be satisfied as a byproduct of the film not delivering in the atmosphere it builds off of. In other words, you'll be left imagining what read more

While deciding to watch Eve no Jikan I was a bit skeptical as to whether or not I'd even like it, but as the movie started and the story unraveled before my eyes, I found myself being dragged into it with each passing minute. It even caught the attention of my younger brother, who ended up taking the time out of his normally video game filled day to sit down and watch it with me. Which I must say, considering how well I know my brother, says a lot about the quality of this movie.

Technology plays a huge role in today's world and Eve read more

Eve no Jikan is a rarity. The stage in which the story is set may not be the most original but the elements that blend it all together as a whole makes a great movie. Issac Asimov the man who created the settings in which half of science fiction takes place in and this movie is no stranger to it. He is the one responsible for creating the three laws of robotics, and he is the one who also delved into the idea that robots could be much more than what we intend them to be.

In Eve no Jikan we see a multitude of read more

Anime: Plastic Memories
Androids: indistinguishable from normal humans, are part of everyday life in society. Both stories dive into what it means to be human, vs just simply robots. With the spice of comedy garnishing these two series, it's a hearty full course of drama packed with emotions, that will make us reevaluate our perspectives on the lives of both people, and androids.

Anime: Mizu no Kotoba
A short animation done by Studio Rikka and also set in a cafe. Despite having different stories it's overall elements make it a nice short and interesting look into the early beginnings of what would then be refined into Time of Eve.

Anime: Sakasama no Patema
Directed by the same guy. Both are set in futuristic Sci-Fi settings dealing with What-If scenarios. Eve no Jikan deals with how you define being human, in regards to robots, while Sakasama no Patema looks at a scenario where there are two types of people that are affected by gravity differently and how they interact with each other. Both take a deeper look at how people "work" and interact with others. Neither should be missed!

Anime: Computer Kakumei: Saikyou x Saisoku no Zunou Tanjou
"Computer Revolution: The Birth of the Most Powerful and Fastest Brains" / "Computer Kakumei: Saikyou x Saisoku no Zunou Tanjou" and "Time of Eve" / "Eve no Jikan" focus on how society would function in a future where people are surrounded by artificial intelligence.

In their respective universes, each shines a light on a competition between man and computer for jobs and tasks, the interactions between a person and an artificial intelligence in everyday life, and the possible relations that can develop between them over time.

Anime: Subete ga F ni Naru: The Perfect Insider
Both are mystery, and they have future life too. Their stories is about how to solve or find clues or theories, and they seem strange and surprise.

Anime: Pale Cocoon
A short film also by Yoshiura and has a very similar style. Pale Cocoon could well be let in the same universe as Eve no Jikan. I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoyed this, or sci-fi in general.
