I still don't quite get this show. The main reason people think that associating with robots is bad is that robots are programmed to have no emotions. And yet, the robots in the show clearly have emotions. So how did those emotions magically come into existence?

Beautiful ending for a brilliant show.

When Masaki was gonna take Tex home with that touching music and all I was like "hey wait, are they gonna just pretend stairs don't exist?" What happened next made me smile. :)

This show lacks neither form or substance with great themes surrounding AIs. Every episode makes you think and reflect on your personal prejudices, without making it feel artificial or forced (what I'd call "intellectual masturbation"), rather keeping everything light hearted but not insignificant thanks to intelligent directing.

It can be funny without being mindless stupid, it can be touching without being melodramatic, and it can be serious without being suffocating.

This is truly a great piece of work among an ocean of mediocrity. 7/10 because I enjoyed my Time of Eve, thank you very much. 1 more as a tip, that makes it 8/10. :)

Advanced Computing Abilities + Prolonged Interaction with Humans = Development of Genuine Emotions

It's hardly a new concept in the realm of the science fiction.

hope they make a full season's worth. XD

What GreatRumbler said.

I assume that the ability to at least "fake" emotion would be a design feature of AI. But the anti-robot crowd might remain skeptical that even a sophisticated AI could ever have real emotions.

(There are certainly plenty of philosophers today who think a computer couldn't ever have conscious experience, and it's not clear any amount of Turing-test-passing would qualify as a compelling counter-argument from their point of view.)

Couldnt it be somethign more simple like law one, protect humans, and that becomes dont hurt humans in anyway, and bam things fall into order. the rule of the cafe is to treat humans and androids equaly and if a android was to not follow that rule it would hurt nagi, so in order to prevent hurting nagi they over ride rules like having the status rings over there heads and obeying orders..

Definitely a very good series, but I wouldn't count it as one of the best i've ever seen. If we are ever fortunate enough to see a actual full length series, and it's as good as this final episode, then I would probably consider it one of the best anime i've seen.

As it is, though, it is just very good and out performs the very similar Chobits in so many ways; despite it's much shorter length.

I'll give this series an 8/10.

i glad i watch this anime... my favorite part is the development between rikou n sammy (somehow i feel it is cute n pure) too bad it was short n unable to cover everything...

only one thing piss me off in this anime n it is the advertisement of anti-androids comity like the one "love between androids n human? it just doesnt work" blah blah blah...

This show is fantastic, but too bad it's so short. Just when it felt like something was starting it ends, hope for sequel of some sort in the future.
Looking forward to the blue-ray movie :D

I was lucky enough to see this in the cinema yesterday at Sci-Fi London's Anime All-Nighter, and it was definitely the best anime of the night. It had the entire cinema in hysterics most of the time, and the end was very touching. The best OVA ever made in my opinion.

This is unreal. This episode. This series. It stirs up so many emotions so well.
Even single episode just makes me feel more and more sorry for the poor oppressed robots.

It was a good episode compared to the others but I guess it's tough to end the series in a satisfactoy way, it kind of felt like a forced ending to me I guess. The part where they were trying to figure out why the android initially spoke was pretty good. I guess I expected a lot of the plot to centre around the plot in the first ep but it kind of switched directions.

Ok... enjoyable show but the whole Nagi thing really confused me.
Shiotsuki is the previous leader of the Robotics Ethics Committee?
Setoro works for the white haired lady who sits at the desk and is apparently watching over Eve no Jikan which means there is some connection going on such as an experiment to see if humans and androids can really cohabitate without discrimination?
Nagi is the girl who was previously injured in the Tokisaka incident so she's a human... she's not "able to bring anyone [there]", is she part of the experiment, just an observer of sorts?
Eve no Jikan is apparently rule #1138 also there were 1408 places to be checked by the Robotics Ethics Committee...could this be a large experiment where the androids are built with like a program with the locations of places that vary in the degree of acceptance or whatever it is that they seek and are led by the program to the area that best suits their wishes... where as Eve no Jikan is the complete acceptance and equality place? The Sammy not knowing how she found the place incident is what led me to this assumption... plus it was kind of strange how some androids just seemed to know where it was... like the nameless one.
I'm just very confused to say the least and grasping at straws to get any clues as to what's going on, any insight would be greatly appreciated.
In the End, was it worth it?

Huh, I did not know that! Thanks for keeping the rest of us informed with your insightful geekyness. ^_~

Loved this series to death. There MUST be more to it or I'll just have to weep out a flood worthy of the Old Testament. They definitely opened up tons of possible directions and plot lines at the end, so I'm very hopeful. The artwork and cinematic psuedo-camerawork in this is groundbreaking. And this show follows my dramatic creed: Just because something is touching and dramatic doesn't mean it shouldn't have humor.

I applaud this show firmly!

Meh.. nice final ep.

But they could have done better especially during ep 3-4.

Like some of you viewers out there.. I wanted to see more of "Sammy".

I wanted to see how the protagonist would struggle with his 'dorei-kei' behaviour towards Sammy. And whether he could see Sammy as a 'person' or whatever..

The last ep was quite 'touching', but they should have presented something like that involved Sammi + Rikuo. Without letting it slide into shit like for example with Chobits..

Nice show.. but they could have done better.. meh..


I think the same way. The story involving sammi and rikuo was left entirely opened and I hope they tell us what happens on a next season.

slice of sci-fi? hehe..

this is good enough for a 10 on my part so yeah.. it's amazing.. we've seen these kind of things on many sci-fi robot-related shows but never presented in this way.. this show has both the heart and thought-provoking ideas.. and it even leaves it to be open for a sequel..

Awesome series. I hope the movie is more of a sequal then just the series with more scenes. To be honest I'm not too sure why they feel the need to turn the first 6 episodes into a film. Just give us a full length series!

It is totally AWSOME, really one of the best animes I have ever seen.
I just hope for the 2nd season as the story remains way too open for my taste.

Despite it being so short i can't give it less than 10/10.

Wow, this really is a great show. I'd say this is my favourite episode overall. I felt really bad for Masaki, even shed a few tears. This show manages everything superbly, and even gives us something to think about.

Easily a 9/10

I wish they'd make it a full 13-episode series... Oh well, now to wait for the movie.

I liked it. I thought the TX thing at the end was interesting and kind of sad. Like most people have mentioned, more Sammy would have been nice. I thought the ending left the show open for a sequel. I really wanted to know why the androids had personalities and such inside the cafe, but outside of it they were just.....robots. I enjoyed the series overall. =)

This episode was definitely and without any doubt the best of them!

The story with THX was really touching, much more intense than the episodes before...man, that made me cry... ._.

Ending was brilliant.

If only they give Sammy a bit more screentime, I'd like that...

Nonetheless, it's a pretty solid show, except our knowledge about the characters is ever so limited.

I see big potential in pairing Masaki x Akiko you know i think there was little electricity betwen them and it could be interesting to see Masaki father reaction.
For me Samy x Rikuo is not that interesting pairing since its little bit cliche.

Brilliant ending! :D Definitely satisfying. Really felt like everything came together [and eventually to a close] quite nicely. The whole thing with Masaki and Tex was unexpected for me, but it was the perfect explanation for his behaviour throughout the series.

I would have liked to see some SammyxRikuo... but meh! Whatever. I definitely chuckled a bit at the part when Masaki and Tex were leaving. XDD

A fresh take on a fairly overused concept... 'Twas refreshing and an enjoyable ride! 9/10 for me. :)

Wow that was a great series.Why did I ignore it for so long? Don't know why it's listed under romance genre. It's more drama than anything.

Great semi cliff hanger. They tie up enough loose ends and leave enough open to a second season. My only hope is that if they do pursue a sequel, they make it the standard half hour segments. I hate how they have to tease with "THE END....?"

Also, there wasn't enough Sammy. Really like her character design.
