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 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.
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.
Referring to viewers who's state on early depression, that depicts your inner epitome of life looking how bad it is. Nothing's casually way more worthless than an edgy satirical degenerate that transcends into a detestable c*nt.
There is NO well written gaps as on crossing a boundary between sub interior to deepen as well it keeps a shallow truth that lies on behalf mindsets. A balance we're indeed forced by contradicting uncountable amount of plotholes and fed up horrible pacing that intends to be left through it's current aspects of the whole show.
Oh look? a Former REDJUICE design coming from it's new ver. or indeed the new Guilty Crown mixed up with a lot of overly innuendo on Clockwork Planet. Which is an absolute trainwreck. Feel free to judge this simulator vile concepts cause it's beyond nauseating which includes in the trash.
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
the society fears them and acts violently towards them, by breaking the law, destroying these robots, which are only helping the elderly and serving as vendors, next to many useful task.
Exploring the details intricately of these concepts could have lead to a deep philosophical Sci fy anime, that could be mentioned next to the names of shows like Steins:Gate, in the hands of capable producers and writers.
Instead we get glorified teenage girls in overexposing clothing fighting with over sized mecha weaponry, a wannabe Shinji clone, my single most hated character in the entire anime industry in the form of Arato Yuka, and a story more pathetic than Mirai Nikki's ending.
Couple of spoilers from episode one an two:
Right after the main protagonist gets beaten up to the point that he coughs up blood, the heroine shows up and saves the day. Without visiting a doctor, or anything the now bonded by a (BS) contract walk home to find the MC's sister waiting. Without questioning the origin of MC's new hIE, or the marks left by the beating (which are miraculously healed by) she accepts the new member of the household and the three of them proceed to make dinner...
Later on the sister, Yuka registers Lucia, the newly found hIE in a beauty contest,, without asking permission from his brother which she wins.
Spoilers end here, the show is, and probably will be filled with poor and badly written cases, of witch, given the context should never have happened, given that Yuka is not existing.
You see, Yuka is my most hated character in the anime industry, and the creators have not even made her to be hated. There are characters like Seryuu Ubiquitous or Jofery Baratheon who are made to be hated.
I hate Yuka because she has no redeeming quality, she is ignorant, selfish obnoxious, reckless and idiotic. "Yeah, but we were able to get Lacia back, and I ate some good food, so I'm fine now!" (this sentence refers to an even of episode three, where Lacia was kidnapped ) is a line that perfectly describes her.
And the worst thing is her character is used to justify events like the beauty contest. Her character actively ruins the anime with every single second she is on the screen.
The animation is above the average, but its not something special. The music is kinda generic and resembles those which are found in futuristic technology videos that are complete bull-crap.
So yeah, if you wanted anything good about this show, turn around and don't let it fool you.
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.
The main character is probally the worst because it look's so stupid his relacionship with
his robot and he as no motivation.
Overall i didn't enjoy this anime (i hated) and i don't recomend to anyone.
