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.

*This review contains some ugly words - such as fucking, robot-bitch, incest-curious and "ugly" - and may harm some viewers. Just like the anime did.*

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
-John Lennon, The Beatles

The anime, Beatless, is often misunderstood in similar manner. This is a romance story between two real human beens, except the other one read more

To star this anime doesn't air fully so you have to wait until the end of September to see ending.
Now review.
First before watching this anime be ready for long dialogue its going to be a lot. In order to understand it you have to understand almost everything what was said. The vocabulary is full of technical terms witch makes it even more harder to understand. I am not native English speaker so I had to do a lot pause in the middle of anime to fully understand the dialogue. Art: I would said its ok but studio could do better job.
Sound: Very good read more

What is a recap episode?

Recap episodes are the stuff that the creators put in because they either don’t have enough material to adapt further arcs of set anime or they want to have newcomers who are interested of watching set series to catch up. Unless you are a long running anime that has 50+ episodes I find the recap episodes to be pointless and lazy because honestly why would you watch 20 minute clip show that summaries a couple of story arcs that very often leaves out important stuff when you can easily go watch actual episodes themselves.

What does this have to do with read more

Back when I started the show as it aired on January 13 I liked Beatless. It had coloured me with joy and anticipation since it's first episode went so well. Compared to the other anime I started at the time, it felt like it could do a lot with it's premise. Tut Tut. It went out like a light for the whole first half and took a while to set itself on track, and unfortunately not the same track as I felt in episode 1, but hey, it had a direction, so that's already better than FranXX.

Having said that, Beatless is far from perfect, read more
