In 2039, helper androids are widespread as general purpose electronics.

Keiichiro lost his family in a traffic accident and retired from his band. One day, he finds an old model android in a garbage dump. He takes her home but after taking her to a repair shop he was told she couldn't be repaired so he planned to throw her away, but the next day he finds her making breakfast for him. Thus begin the summer days of a memoryless android and a dreamless boy.

Kowarekake no Orgel was originally an independent animation released as an OVA. Later on it received a theatrical release that is a bit different and longer than the original.

The perfect choice for anyone with some time to spare and in the mood to have his or her heart touched. Despite being called one, this anime is not as long as the average “movie.” But do not worry! For what it lacks in length, it definitely makes up for in content.

This movie revolves around Keiichiro, a young man who has lost his family and his passion for music, and Flower, an outdated, clumsy helper-android with a bad memory. The two meet at a garbage site, where Keiichiro finds himself unable to leave her behind, despite the fact that someone has obviously thrown her away. read more

If you're wondering whether you should watch the theatrical release or the OVA, watch this version, as it has a small extra scene where the stupid loli robot hits herself in the face with a rubber snake from a vending machine and it's cute.

Very emotional piece of work here by POP, a titan among men of character designers. If you like having your heart tugged on this will accomplish that and quite efficiently at just a half hour length. Flower is super cute and makes me envy the man of tomorrow, for we are a long way off from having our own little moe machines read more

THE most touching anime I've ever seen. I first discovered it almost a decade ago, and recently re-encountered it on YouTube. It's power comes essentially from the contrast between the lil robot's fragility, known from the beginning, and her clearly parental feeling for the male character. (Note the generic name given for these robots in the anime sub.)

The terrible fact that we and all our loved ones are going to die makes all of us humans, even the young who are the main watchers of anime, carry a hidden wellspring of sorrow at that fact of inevitable loss, whether past, of our parents, or future read more
