Legend tells that when the Earth was destroyed, the great clockmaker Y made a replacement from cogs and gears. Naoto Miura is a young boy who aspires to be a great clockmaker. However, despite his unique talent—sensitive hearing that can immediately understand clockwork mechanics from noise alone—he has made little progress. But this changes when a coffin falls from the sky into his apartment, revealing RyuZU, a female automaton forged by Y himself.

News of RyuZU's arrival brings Marie Bell Breguet, the gifted heir of a distinguished line of clockmakers, and her cyborg bodyguard Vainney Halter into Naoto's life as well. When she and Naoto both become embroiled in an action-packed battle for their lives, they discover an uncomfortable truth: the clockwork planet that humanity has lived on for over a millennium is beginning to break down—a secret that many people will kill to protect.

This is... really over hated. Like, really over hated. Most of what I saw in this was actually positive, the characters and plot were interesting, and it was totally enjoyable and worth a watch.

Clockwork Planet tells the story of 2 characters: The class wimp Naoto Miura and the daughter of the respected Breguet family, Marie, who are living in a mechanical world created by a person called "Y". Y created this world from Earth after it reached the time limit and continued allowing humans to live their lives, though the planet is run by gears and entire countries could collapse if something goes wrong. Marie ...

Mixed Feelings
Just felt like rewatching this, the first watch from years ago wasn't very memorable. Clockwork Planet is actually kinda cool, but nothing is that amazing about the plot and the characters' development to me. It just felt like I was getting to see the MCs adventuring, which was totally fine and entertaining. It's a short anime I rewatched in two nights, so if you want to see two genius kids and their robots just saving the world and stuff, I would say why not crank it out. Otherwise, I wouldnn't prioritize watching it, it's just a time-killer.

Oh I guess my review was too short ...

(This review has been adapted from my blog/reddit thread. Spoilers ahead!)

Clockwork Planet features and stars a couple of automata, robots who are more human than machine (on the outside at least).

Last year, a video game titled Nier:Automata stayed true to its name and did the same. I quickly fell in love with the somewhat niche project: 2B, the phenomenal OST, the amazing (true) ending. Not only was it my favorite game from 2017 but also it earned a spot within my all-time-best list. Alongside the likes of Banjo-Kazooie, Super Mario 64, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest, Dark Souls, The Last of Us, and ...
