In the near future, 10 percent of the population will consist of Humanoids—machines with advanced functions and artificial intelligence resembling human personalities, easily recognized by their sideways pupils. These specialized patients likewise require a special doctor. By day, Dr. Hikaru Sudou runs a medical clinic for Humanoids; by night, under the moniker of Moggadeet, he performs illegal procedures and gathers information about his lost mother.

Hikaru encounters patients with varying problems unique to this society: a Humanoid struggling with the question of whether she and the source of her backup data are the same person, a teenage Humanoid who cannot improve athletically, and even a robot teddy bear with memories of multiple owners. As the world's technology constantly evolves, newer and more complex questions surrounding humanity arise. With each new advance, it becomes more difficult to define what truly makes one human or Humanoid.

Ai no Idenshi is perhaps one of the most relevant anime to be released in recent memory. In an era of ever evolving technology and artificial intelligence, AI no Idenshi raises many complicated questions such as “how far is too far with technology” and “what does it mean to be human” Both are morally ambiguous and divisive, and what I like about this show is that it frames these topics in a neutral manner. It doesn’t shove an answer down your throat, but forces you to consider your positions on the matter. It’s a really interesting and thought provoking show that deserves much more love. ...

Mixed Feelings
DNA-focused anime, ID:Invaded, Plastic Memories...what has become of this barren land of science fiction that's not much focused in the world of AniManga? Is it that authors have a burning desire to share with the world the possibilities of AI, or are unwilling to cash in on a niche product that'll not catch on?

This season, there was one show that's more than enough to take on the premise of the world at large and its studies on AI, and that's mangaka Kyuuri Yamada's AI no Idenshi a.k.a The Gene of AI, a manga that lasted 87 chapters within 8 volumes, serialised between November 2015 and ...

Preliminary (7/12 eps)
Look, I came here for the ideas it brought in the first episode, a hard sci-fi about the nature of thinking machines and how they would be treated by a society who already treats humans badly. Instead of focusing on the interesting ideas of "what is the legal status of AI people" and "how does a society treat a new class of people" it wants to go through what ifs and not develop them.
The show has one or two good ideas that I really liked, the episode where a dude makes an AI version of his high school crush for sexual reasons is a ...
