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.

In a future where every family is in possession of androids, for which all basic human chores and tasks are delegated to, how does the relationship between humans and their robotic creations pan out when androids seemingly have artificial intelligence?

This isn't a new topic in the science fiction genre by any stretch of the imagination, but as a film Time of Eve manages to be a huge breath of fresh air with both its approach and execution to the topic.

The setting of the film mostly takes place at a cafe, called Time of Eve, where inside the cafe there is a rule that there will read more

Eve no Jikan is a story about the lives of the customers who visit a café where you are not allowed to disciminate against robots/androids to the point that when your in this café you have no idea who is human and who is an android. The film asks many questions concerning whether androids really should be treated as mere things or as people, and you get to meet people who are extremists for both sides of the point.

The setting is stated as 'probably Japan' and is set sometime in the near future, i like how they took a few current inventions that you see read more

This movie is a gem. One whose elegance and brilliance outshines most. There is one word I would use to describe Eve No Jikan, and that is beautiful.

Story: 8

All of the events in the movie are tied to the Time of Eve cafe, which is the main set shown in the show. The movie is told in linked segments that each transition beautifully into the next. I was truly touched by this film. The plot moved briskly from segment to segment bringing more elements which enhanced the overall theme of the story. Mentioning the theme, the concept of adversity that human like androids read more

When we live in a world in which Japanese android newscasters can deliver the news and other “Geminoids” are closer to mimicking the exact appearance and movements of humans, the line between the living and the nonliving is constantly blurring by the day. What are the implications and the consequences of having lifelike robots live among humans? Will they fulfill Sci-fi lovers’ fantasies and take over the world? Or will they blend into society, disturbingly so, eventually becoming more humanlike than even humans themselves? All these possibilities and concerns are just humanity’s natural reaction towards the uncertain, and answers are sought out through various forms 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: 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.

Anime: There She Is!!
Overcoming boundaries between different groups in the society is a common theme in these anime.

There she is relies more on a humorous and emotional approach to this issue, while Eve no Jikan focuses on deeper interactions between members of different groups.
