Synopsis

Satomi Amano is a model student as well as the daughter of the leading project manager of Hoshima, a company that has revolutionized AI technology. However, due to her standing, Satomi's presence has isolated her from her classmates—an obstacle she knows she may never overcome.

On an otherwise uneventful day, while preparing for school, Satomi uncovers her mother's latest exciting proposition: an AI that will prove whether robots can live alongside humans. Intrigued by how her mother will commence the project, Satomi makes her way to school, but standing in front of the class is none other than the AI herself.

As the subject of research, Shion Ashimori is tasked to fit in like a normal teenage girl without exposing her true identity. However, Shion has another goal in mind—to make Satomi happy instead. With her talent for singing, Shion strives to compose harmonious melodies that not only connect her with her newfound friends but also dispel the dissonance within Satomi's heart.

"You've Got Friends (あなたには友達がい)" by Tao Tsuchiya



Nov 11, 2021
This movie is a story of youth set in high school.
They spend high school life with human-like robots.
The hero can remind the robot of the importance of friends and important memories.
The robot always asks the hero like this.
"Are you happy now?"
In this movie, robots sing like musicals in some places.
It's like a Disney movie, but it naturally blends into the story.
There is no gorgeous production in this movie, but it gives a moving story such as people's happiness and friends.
It's not a big hit at the moment, but it's a very good movie.

It's got everything that makes anime fun and exciting to watch. Zany robots, Disney musical numbers, Shipping, big reveals, emotional reunions, princesses, evil scientists who don't understand the Power of Love, a group of plucky teens and also the main girl's Mom fighting against authority to save their friend. The art isn't the best ever, but they do some really cool big, flashy, eye-catching scenes with Shion using her powers to control all the nearby electronic devices. There are a couple of touching Power of Friendship moments that would have made me cry if I were a weaker woman. I genuinely enjoyed the cheesy musical ...

So... I did not expect this, but I didn't like Sing a Bit of Harmony as much as I've wanted to. Even now, I consider Time of Eve to be a quintessential cosy Sci-Fi and one of the better examples of playing with AI-related ideas (even transhumanist ones to some extent) in the medium. Harmonie and Aquatic Language were also really nice. And I tend to overrate everything slightly musical in nature too. Everything was looking favourable at first. Heck, if I were to compile my 10 favourite movies in a top, more than half would be musicals. But the main difference between those and ...
