HAL and Chobits focus on a relationship unfolding between a human and an android. They both have heartwarming and sweet moments, and the events that occur throughout will keep you on the edge of the seat. I find it charming how both HAL and Chobits managed to add a realistic touch to the animations by featuring hardships the protagonists must go through in pursuit of happiness because - we all aware that a relationship between a human and a machine is complicated and can't be quite 'perfect'.
Both Chobits and Hal shows how Artificial Humans can fall in Love.
Romance is a dynamic feature in their storytelling as the main characters reveal more about their Past and Personalities. Throughout both series, we see how much they progress.
Hal is a touching Love story with a Twisted plot whereas Chobits is a Cute Heartwarming story with some funny moments.
Both are AMAZING anime ,which is why I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU TO WATCH THEM.
Hal and Chobits
* Future where androids are part of society, help humans to perform tasks and can be part of you, as a family, having a human form.
* A robot that knows about its owner, its sufferings and is feeling a nearby to him.
Plastic Memories is similar to Hal in it's human/android relationship. Androids usually are in place of a loved one. Both shows are focused on romance and deal with death/the loss of a person. Plastic Memories is more of a romance story versus Hal is a drama/romance.
"Hal" and "Plastic Memories" share the common themes of loss and dealing with loss. They both showcase how a society with life-like androids with artificial intelligence capable of everything human can help people from individuals who need company and to those who require even more assistance in life.
In additional, the lead characters of these two works are constantly together due to the job of the robot and attachment between them quickly grow as they get to know one another better.
Hal and Plastic Memories:
* Both set in a future where androids perform tasks to help humans. Among its main functions is to protect them, which can sometimes have a human form, similar to a family, making it company, sharing as part of their family.
* A human and an android are known, after one of them, has had sad experiences, which needs the company of other to move forward.
* Both show us that robots can feel, even like humans.
Both are about people dealing with the loss of their lover and trying to move on.
Both are very sweet with some touching moments and well animated.
In both main female character runs a cute little shop.
Both animes treat about sad theme - death, which is taking away person you love the most. At first shows look like very sad, depressing and hard series, but they're certainly not like this. If you look closer, they're quite colorful, though very peaceful. Quite modern art, colorful animation, soft (and not sad) music and theme of everyday life make them very light series, which can help you understand death and life more, but probably won't left you depressed for a months.
Both anime focus on the theme of human-android relationships in a time when androids are virtually indistinguishable from humans. Hal is more romance centered while Eve no Jikan deals with the feelings of androids.
We are in fact just like androids-we are programmed by our genes. We are readily conscious and have emotions, so why can't androids have them as well, if programmed to that extent?
Hal is like a longer but more boring version of Hotarubi no Mori e. They are both short, visually stunning movies with interesting characters and attractive story, setting, and plot. Both are fantasy/Sci-Fi, but focuses more on the slice of life.
Both movies center on a male lead with traumatizing childhood and past experiences but meets a kind, loving, and naive female partner which brings significant changes to their miserable lives and how they value it.
However Hal introduces certain unique plot-lines and twists unusual in a romance anime to compensate for its lack of emotional resonance and congenial/sympathetic characters which Hotarubi no Mori e has plenty of; a good compromise.
If you liked one, you will surely love the other. read more
Both are romantic drama movies that are beautifully drawn and animated. Both are pretty short yet manage to tell very moving stories of love and have a certain degree of bitter-sweetness to them. They are also different from most romance anime out there and have some kind of uniqueness to them.
I recommend this movie, I mean there's no body swapping in this movie but it does the same effect to your heart as much as Kimi no Na wa does, the art and love story is similar in predicaments because someone does die in it also so it is similar in ways. But i do highly recommend this movie to people who loved the touchy feely types of anime movies like Kimi no Na wa.
Both are movies (yep.)
Both are the similar type of romance, a heartwarming and bittersweet romance with a lot of surprises.
Both involves a couple who are at lost of each other. Body swapping in Kimi no Na wa & robotic human in Hal.
Both females are the similar type and both are dearly connected to the male protagonists.
Both involves life, death, time and memories.
DIFFERENCE : Hal is more calm oriented than Kimi no Nawa. Hal is also more realistic and possible. Kimi no Nawa is more funny and interesting. Kimi no Nawa is like making the impossible possible while Hal is turning the possible upside down.
Very similar feeling and mood overall. About "robots" or non-humans that show emotion. Both are about tragic romances and use their emotional music very effectively. Both have a subtle, elegant slice of life feeling to them.
Both Hal and Hybrid Child are stories of romance punctuated by tragedy and hardship, and they both contain major characters that are artificial humans, such as a robot in Hal and dolls in Hybrid Child.
These two films deal with the boundaries between human and machine. In particular, the emotions conveyed between the two and across both borders. In essence the message is emotions know no bounds for these two films.
Both movies focus on human - robot relationship in a way that not only deals with love, friendship and tragedy but also with much more deep themes like what makes them different, what role one's appearance plays in determining one's identity, what makes a human human, and whether it is possible to create a bridge between two species through ignoring the externals and focusing on the inside, etc.
Also, Hal is a romance-oriented movie whereas Time of Eve deals much more with society vs individual issue.
Still, they are similar in the questions they raise, so if you like one, give the other a chance.  read more
Heartwarming dramas. Take place when robots are being made to replace and fulfill role of deceased people. Provided with the artificial memories of real people (and also provided with something called "emotion"), they slowly build relationship with people.
Both involve robots whose purpose is to be of service to humans who are in the process of mourning a loved one.
Hal is moreso about the robot trying to help the mourning person, whereas Hotori is about a robot who makes a friend while still in the process of being prepared for the mourning persons.
Two stories about a certain person dealing with the lost of their love. While AnoHana focus on a group of friends, Hal focus in just a couple. Heart breaking scenes where main characters just seems to have lost the will to live. Both shows have a stunning animation, with a beautiful and touching OST. A must watch for persons who enjoy angst.
"Computer Revolution: The Birth of the Most Powerful and Fastest Brains" / "Computer Kakumei: Saikyou x Saisoku no Zunou Tanjou" and "Hal" both involve artificial intelligence assisting people from minor everyday things to matters of importance involving life and death. However, the more prominent focus is on the interactions between a person and an artificial intelligence and the potential relations that could develop amidst their time together.
These two slice-of-life works produced by Production I.G. also share similar character designs and a similar general art style, which of course are used to tell these respective stories that each send rather compelling messages.
