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.

Very underrated anime, the concept behind it is very overlooked by many and the story is actually quite emotional and tear jerking in my opinion. I highly disagree with the low rating this anime overall has. The story is really unique in its own way and doesnt really feel like it is comparable to something other i have seen. The art style is really well done and gives a certain dystopian/realistic feeling to it together with emptiness and also a really interresting emotion that folds with the way the story goes. I think again this anime is wrongly hated and looked down on because of ...

Mixed Feelings
This anime has a deeply flawed story, only matched by it's copout ending.

It has alright music and art, and the complexity of some of it's ideas deserves better than the farce the story and characters actually have to give. The mystery around the villainy was wasted on a basic AI, a mysterious AI ready to kill all in his way, which you would think would make it a simple enough task not to be stopped, but it does because reasons, mainly a lack of good plot, or malice or threat. A cheap way to take the bad guy down. Not much in re-watch-ability.

My teenage brother begged me to watch this so I spent a weekend marathoning it to make him happy God, this was bad. Like really bad. There are a FEW interesting ideas in here like the legal and moral issues of AI not being able to take responsibility for their decisions, the effect on the worldwide economy as human labor becomes obsolete and a few others but they do nothing to make up for how much of a trainwreck this story is. The characters are boring, the villains are wildly inconsistent and the story makes little to no sense.

The first episode was handled adequately ...
