In the aftermath of a great and terrible war, Haruka finds herself the last surviving human on Earth. Though humanity may have been wiped out, she is not entirely alone. Advanced robots have survived the apocalypse, and Haruka lives with five who care for her: Spike, a boyish android who is very attached to her; Trigger, hot-tempered with a penchant for firearms; Cleric, the intelligent problem solver; Reeves, whose thoughtfulness overshadows his intimidating appearance; and Angela, a sword wielding recluse with an aversion towards humans. Residing in a high-rise building at the center of the city, Haruka lives a relatively peaceful life with her mechanical family.

However, her life is far from a stable one. Not only is a lack of resources a concern, but violent, remnant robots from the war roam free, ready to destroy whomever they meet. Kurogane Communication follows Haruka as she tries to survive in an apocalyptic world while facing many dangers that will challenge her daily life.

When i first saw the Rating for this anime i was hesitant to watch it but after seeing it i was glad i did, first off the story of this series is very interesting. It sort of reminds me of Blue Gender crossed with Ergo Proxy, not quite the same but similar in the whole end of the world aspects and robots. This story left me with a heartwarming feeling that I don't get from most shows. There are some things it could have improved on, first off is the duration its a little short at being about 12 mins per episode not including credits, read more

This was quite the enjoyable title for me. While sentient robots and post-apocalyptic settings are nothing new to be seen in anime, Kurogane Communication puts a somewhat positive spin on the mix in its focus on Haruka and her robotic companions. Many of the characters seen throughout the series, both human and robot, get a great amount of fleshing out allowing you to connect with their characters and understand both the strengths and flaws of their characters, whether it be Haruka experiencing flashbacks about her past or robots like Spike comprehending whether they are "alive" if they are programmed as so. The plot buildup was read more

Kurogane Communication is by no means original. The story revolves around the only survivor of mankind, a young girl who has to live in a post-apocalyptic environnement. But she's not alone: a bunch of robots take care of her.

Throughout the 24 episodes of 12 minutes, we follow her life in this desolate world: a sci-fi post-apo slice of life.

Nothing wrong with it. But not really original. The sci-fi elements are so generic, so you can't caracterize the show. That's why it's so forgettable.
The characters are dull, the young girl is a pure hearted lady...

Of course, it's japanese so the robots have feelings and they really read more
