With great advancements in technology, mankind has created hIEs, human-like robots that act as public and personal servants for society. Unlike many others, the kind-hearted high school student Arato Endou treats hIEs as equals, but his financial situation keeps him from ever owning one.

However, his normal life is shattered when an ordinary run to the local grocery store goes horribly awry. Viciously assaulted by a hacked hIE, Arato is on the verge of death; but luckily, he is saved by an abnormal hIE carrying a weaponized coffin. Her name is Lacia, one of five highly advanced hIEs that recently escaped the clutches of the mysterious MemeFrame Corporation.

Faced with a hacked car threatening to run them over, Lacia offers Arato a deal: in exchange for saving his life, he must register as her new owner, thus taking full responsibility for her actions. With little choice, he decides to trust this artificial girl and allows her to live in his home. Though Lacia begins to adapt to her new, peaceful lifestyle, she warns the entranced Arato of one thing—she does not have a soul.

Effects of synthesizing human intelligence due to expressing amount of emotions may considered to be just a petty schmuck cardboard detail. Let alone it brings no utterly sense of redeeming plot that tells within poor cringe setting apart it's memoir caricature.

Pretty sure, you won't expect anything usual besides it's turmoil humor other than the premises, Besides every visuals where too shiny more than came from a cheap third-rate crap. Along the details, Stories we're out linear on set of timing, characters we're too one dimensional with also had a self inserted whiny BETA c*ck, who regains her former fapping doll as his personal guest. read more

I have seen only 5 episode so far, but this anime has promise. It explores the role of AI in the human world. Some of the ideas are a bit cliché at first, but they expanding into more complex situations.

the main weakness of the show is the main character. He is rather two dimensional, and his interactions, and his interaction with the Lacia AI comes out of nowhere.

Overall, I would say, keep watching, and hope that the writers managed to pull it together.

This show can either end up as the sleeper hit of the spring, or a hot pile on the sidewalk.

Beatless is a show with great potential, but terrible play.
It lures the viewer in with its tag line: I trust in your smile, even if you are a robot.

As the synopsis says, this show's setting is about humanoid robots integrated in human society. The story revolves around a new model of hIE, which can defeat military grade forces, and there are multiple of them. One of these new hIE-s has formed a bond with a high school boy, and possibly face some drama in the future.

The show's robots, hIE-s are past the uncanny valley. They already seem to be great use to society, yet read more

becareful when you reading this, maybe contain some spoiler ok

lets take a look at the characters, its interesting to see weak male being helped by a strong woman, the effect is amazingly good but i only say this based on the first episode, well i hope the next episode is more than amazing lol

lacia is really really beautiful character its good to be paired with arato, i wish there will be a lot romance scene in the next episode, beacuse action genre will always be good to be paired with romance

the story in episode 1 is a litte bit predictable , so dont think read more
