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.

A curious series and, sadly, a little known one. The uncommon format of 15-minutes-per-episode might sound as a potential barrier to it, but surprisingly it wasn't the case. In fact, the creators were highly efficient in the use of the time and this allowed a great narrative flow. You have enough time to spend watching the characters, which are definetely the series' main asset because of this. Every single of them is really memorable, be it because they have their own personalities and particular traits, or because they have a more deep background which is explored throughout the episodes. The exploration of their conflicts also ...

Mixed Feelings
Kurogane Communication is definitely a show that had an interesting premise, though it wasn’t able to skillfully follow up on it.

It follows Haruka—the last surviving human in the aftermath of a vague, catastrophic war—as she lives her days with her 5 robotic friends. The series can be divided into two narrative halves: the first, more episodic half which focuses either on a specific character or a certain dilemma per episode; and the second which focuses on a longer narrative arc. Though initially interesting in the beginning, the series never becomes very captivating or does much to hold one's interest. The main reasons for this are ...

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 ...
