In 2039, helper androids are widespread as general purpose electronics.

Keiichiro lost his family in a traffic accident and retired from his band. One day, he finds an android of an old model in a garbage dump. He takes her home, but after taking her to a repair shop he was told that she couldn't be repaired, so he plans to throw her away. The next day, Keiichiro finds her making breakfast for him. Thus begin the summer days of an android with no memories and a dreamless boy.

The struggle Kowarekake no Orgol had to go through to become an entry on MAL was, in my opinion, nothing short of an epic battle, as such a wonderful anime should fully deserve to be here on the first second of its release - unlike anime-styled Windows commercials.

That being said, Kowarekake no Orgol is a story of an unusual summer, when Keiichiro found a "person" who helped him to get out of the misery life put him trough.

Many compare the storyline to Chobits, while I say it is pretty much nothing like it apart from the most basic settings - on the first read more

Hello this is my first review. Here goes nothing.

Well not to spoil this OVA (yes it is a OVA, even though some viewers don't like to watch OVA of anime because sometimes they aren't good enough) but there isn't much to write about.

[Story: 8/10]

The storyline I thoroughly enjoyed because it was lighthearted and easygoing. Yet I wish there was more and this did have (notice: did have) potential to be a good anime.

[Art: 9/10]

I went into this thinking that the art was going to be bad, because I have seen some OVA where the producers don't even care about this and just threw stuff together. read more

The story about a human and an android that helping human is pretty much common in these days. We can say "Sora no Otonoshimo, chobits, Eve no jikan, and many others". They present the same things, its about an android (a robot that looks like a human) that helping their master. But neither those anime really hook me off, until i met Kowarekake no Orgel.

STORY (9/10)
There isnt any strong linear plot on this anime. but basically, Kowarekake no Orgel is focussing on how Keiichiro Kawada spending time with Flower (his android) on the summer days. So what's the fun?

The synopsis may sounds boring, but dont read more

I give this tiny but powerful anime a 91/100

Most anime OVAs we see nowadays are either full-blown hentai, side stories to other mainstream anime, or just plain dumb ones. They're nothing like the OVAs we had back in the old days (like, oh, I don't know, Legend of the Galactic Heroes!?). But this is a first in this time: a totally original one episode doujin anime OVA featuring a totally original story! I don't know the history of doujin OVAs (or OVAs in general, though I know the first OVA ever was Dallos, made in 1983 though it was a flop), but this one seemed read more
