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.

I didn't expect much from this besides being a cute loli-robot doing cute things, what i found out was something much more emotional depth to it.

(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 ...

Finding out the little android girl is obsolete and broken he intends to dispose of it, but when she reactivates and starts housekeeping for him and offering him a sense of companionship/friendship, he begins to feel inspired to live ...
