3rd episode is out now:

Now that's what I call confidence in a child. Poor Kido though but I think he got his words across. Still, I'm proud of these kids of the generation for their brilliant minds. "For now". I wonder if there will be more episodes in the future~

I wasn't expecting much from this, but I'm glad it wasn't bad. That call from the future was a nice touch.

Btw, thanks for providing the links, Stark. I had no idea they were out until I stumbled here, lol.

...yeah, I got nothing. I don't know anymore. I don't feel satisfied, and I'm a bit disappointed. Such potential, and this happened. It probably would've been better off as one long OVA/ONA episode and not separated into three parts that are only eight minutes long, and thus interrupting the flow of the story. Especially by having the host ruin the mood at the end of each episode by basically spoon-feeding us everything like we had no clue what the hell happened.

Seriously, the AI host is irksome, she was not needed at all.

5/10 is my final score for the entire series.

Aww man, another decent show ruined by it's length. :s It was an okay short series. Did not live up to its premise. Wish we could see more artwork by Umino Chika!

The premise was interesting, sucks that it only received 3 short OVAs. I feel as if it can go even deeper with the plot if it were longer.

With this ending we have a probability of a second season *-*

The girl said: "At least for now" or something like that. (at least they subbed it in that way in my language)

I liked it. 8/10 - it would have been better if it was longer.

The only thing watchable about this was the visuals.

Except, the host wasn't needed, but I thought she was cute regardless.
moving on.

The animation was nice, the story decent and the host a bit annoying. I liked it overall.

Lovely short yet powerful anime I must say! I really loved the concept and setting! Would definitely have loved to see this concept expanded upon!

Nice twist with the call from his mother.

The end of humanity? Apparently someone didn't like the answers he got.

Sealing the technology for the time being was the right decision.

I wouldn't mind to see more of this.

Communication with future huh? Yeah that was cool, and they made use of the 7mins they were given. I was able to get the story and the characters, but the protagonist was typical though I kinda wanted him to die in the 1st ep but oh well!

What's with those weird rectangular shadows on the noses? The "final fight" was kinda cheesy though, they could've made something better with the concept.
