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.
I usually rank things mostly on my enjoyment. Why? Because when you watch something, you are watching because you want to spend time and nobody likes to spend time on something they dislike so for me enjoyment is the most important thing.
You can go to my account and see that I'm not one of those persons that score everything bellow 5. I have many things score as 10, but this... this was trash.
This anime had a good promise and everyone was expecting good things about this, but this was awfull.
Reasons why I dindt like the anime:
-Main character as no motivation
-The relationship between him and
the robot looks stupid
-The story is a complete mess
-It just wasn´t fun to watch the show
Overall i didn't enjoy this anime (i hated) and i don't recomend to anyone.
This show had so much potential. For those of you who watched Chobits in the past you will find the premise and story-line eerily familiar minus the awkward innuendo's every 3 minutes. The character artwork for the female characters is bright and vivid. That alone is what stood out for me. The storyline as of episode 8 is somewhat unclear and rather like a lost puppy looking for what it wants to be.
The MC: is your average MC... spineless, indecisive, and at times lacking common sense
The Imouto: I didnt mind so much as I get the feeling her character is the comic relief you
need to keep you from asking why your still watching this show
The Heroine: Is a mixed bag. drawn to be extremely attractive(success IMO) however the premise she keeps stating is she has no emotions and yet seems to convey them over and over again if nothing else via body language.
All in all I find this show to be 5 out of 10. It wasnt so horrilbe that I wont complete it, nor is their glaring issues with every episode. I find this to be on par with other run of the mill anime being produced in this decade. I find it enjoyable enough to watch, but not so much that I would recommend it to a friend.
First off the music is 10/10 any ways lets get down to the rest.
Beatless pretty much stands as an example saying redjuice can mess things up sadly since I was expecting something along guilty crown however thats not entirely what killed this show since the story does sound very promising but ill go ahead and blame this on the director. Take Mizushima Seiji out of this equation I don’t think you have a peg to hang your hat on, to be honest there were more cringe-worthy moments in the premiere than I can shake a stick at, and not all that much to make
one believe there’s something worth wading through them to get to. Beatless does have a very nice look to it, but its eerie resemblance to Guilty Crown is certainly unnerving, given what a debacle that show turned out to be. There’s the nut of an interesting premise here, as played out as the exploration of A.I. having souls is. However there’s a lot of formula and really offensive anime cliche, including one of the most unspeakably awful sister characters I’ve ever seen and honestly Ive seen alot. Yuko may be a deal-breaker, that’s how bad she is but the other problem is that the two leads, Arato and Lacia, could not possibly be more of a trope than they are. Doormat schoolboys and Rei Ayanami clones again, seriously? If I’m going to put up with the really annoying otaku nonsense then this show should have been much better and right now I don’t see anything in Beatless with the potential to do it. I've sat quietly for every episode and the latest two recaps were possibly some of the worst possible thing you could throw in a short series.
Who wrote this shit. Honestly, there are places where our as-expected beta-kun MC steps it up, but other than that - the imouto is the most obnoxious thing in the show. AND the ending is an imouto montage? The premise of the world is interesting enough, it explores like chobits the relationship a robot and human can have - sure, fine, that's fun and all. Lucia best girl bait - fine. But damn is the plot an incoherent mess where the character's motives are simply NOT EXPLAINED. And let's not mention ep 6 RECAP - EPISODE 6.
Redjuice - yeah I'm a redjuice fan boy, bought
RedBox, BEATLESS when it first came out, been following since Supercell feat. Miku days.
OP - Garnidelia
ED - ClariS
AND YET THE STORY STILL MANAGES TO DISAPPOINT - I wished it would be a Guilty Crown first half+, but no.
MC - as expected
Waifu - I'm sorry Touyama Nao you had to sit through this writing.
Imouto - please just stop
MC Friends - not enough development to understand their motives
