In future Japan, in a time when android housekeepers have become commonplace, society strictly abides by the Three Laws of Robotics, which all androids must follow. Under the influence of the Robot Ethics Committee, androids are treated the same way as lesser technology, such as household appliances. However, a minority with an adoration for androids exists, categorized as "android-holics," and are shunned by the general public.

Rikuo Sakisaka was raised to accept society's precept about androids, and is perfectly aware that they are not human. That is, until the day he discovers a strange message buried within the activity logs of his household android, Sammy. This leads him to Eve no Jikan, a cafe with only one rule that its patrons must adhere to: there must be no distinction made between humans and androids. Curiosity drives Rikuo to learn more about the shop, and he attempts to unearth the reason behind Sammy's peculiar behavior.

Time of Eve won the OVA Category during the 2010 Tokyo Anime Award.

Yasuhiro Yoshiura is a writer and director where mostly his concepts are science fiction, now, one of his earliest works (excluding the stuff he did independently) is a very good comedy/sci-fi/drama about mostly androids.

The story unfolds in different situations about androids and their "human" attitudes in a café, exploring more the relationship between being programmed and being able to express oneself with feelings. Especially the last episode shows more about this with one of the main characters and his former android.

On technical aspects, there is a recurrence in Yoshiura's works that he uses a lot of digital (clearly he has a good sense here), with ...

Mixed Feelings
Eve no Jikan is possibly one of the most difficult anime I've ever had to review. This is because, viewing the show in isolation as a piece of media, when you get right down to the essentials of it, Eve no Jikan is very good, and deserves a 7 or even an 8. It's by all accounts a good show, and that deserves recognition on that front before anything else. Though, when one reviews an anime, that review has to look at the whole picture, including the subtext and thematic messaging that comes with a given show, and it is for that reason that Eve ...

First of all this show seemed to me more like a propaganda than anything else, its premise is something like Toy Story or the Cogito Virus from Ergo Proxy but instead the androids keep following the laws of Asimov, so they develop their own personalities with their own desires that they only can manifest in certain areas but always attached to their owners good.

There are a few interesting moments in the show for example when 2 androids trick each other into making the other one believes they're humans instead but overall they are all portrayed as one sided good beings bearer of "hearts", it's just ...
