Lol that was funny.

Mira tries to connect with Kyouma while she also gets a new home. I think her lack of common sense is hmm face palm worthy. Episode felt kinda slow but whatever. I think it's to let Mira experience her newfound life. Meanwhile, I think there's more info dump with this series' society. The world building is kinda interesting for the show. Creepy ending D:

That was a weird ending lol

This episode overall was pretty chill and yet refreshing at the same time solely because of Mira and her interactions with the kids and it was sweet seeing how they all kept her secret after the accident

We got to see a little more into Kyouma's past which is what I wanted to see the most, as well as to get more info on these Number Coils and I think most of us expected them to at least be that powerful and since it seems like there's at least 100 of them, it looks like we're gonna be in for a great ride

Overall it was a great episode and for me the small character driven moments/interactions made this that much more enjoyable and I like how things at progressing especially with the introduction of the COO of New Tesla

There weren't any actions......but the world building and Mira's cuteness was satisfying to look at this time
....she behaves too similar to human for a robot, I still had a bit of doubt if she was really a robot....until after that car accident.

The visual was really nice....especially the water, at the place where Mabuchi met Claire.

Cliffhanger was rather unnecessary but overall very solid episode. Properly done exposition of numbered coils, natural character interactions (except for kids not being traumatized by a flying head or not exposing Mira) and a bit of character development that wasn't too ostentatious.

It's a real shame it's not a 24 episode series. Despite how good it was so far, I'm still worried it will get rushed or clunky towards the end. Rarely anything fits 13 episodes format. The "as many episodes as you need to tell that story" approach is long gone but it would be nice to at least have less series that end before anything even develops.

I like that Kyouma is warming up to Mira. He bought her a trailer, and didn't freak out about her using the bathroom. That was a plus.

When those kids entered the scene, I thought they were going to do something stupid like trash Mira's trailer. I was glad it didn't take that usual route, and they ended up being friends with her.

Good episode.

5/5

Fairly interesting episode, learning more about the number coils and new tesla. Mira's a cutie, but damn those bratty kids for reminding her she's a robot! :(

Well, they skipped an entire arc in the manga about the kids, but it was a nice episode. I also think that arc is a little too much for young viewer.
Mira is cute, as always.

Another awesome ep. 6 mil for that job O_o

But really, Mira's so cute <3 I love her cheerful personality. And that toilet scene LMAO
For some reason I find the way Kyoma ignores Mira hilarious lol

Lol'd at the kid asking if she's done it with Kyoma XD Must've been quite the sight to see her head flying off. Glad these brats didn't say anything or unneeded drama would've definitely happened.

The scene where Mira had her head in her lap was sad :(

Interesting info on Numbers. And the meeting with Claire.

Robots going out of control nxt?

Very chill episode, next episode seems to get back to the main stuff.

Kyouma's dead stare is priceless.

The ending though came out of nowhere. Like some Detective Conan mystery.

Not as fun as last weeks episode but this was more of character building. 6 Million yen sounds like a lot at first but then you realize this is 60 years in the future and hard cash probably has limited places to spend it.

I guess if those kids are not traumatized is beacuse they know what a robot is and that it is just broken and not dead or something like that, it shows that kids understand that in that ''world''.

Nice episode. The main focus was on world building instead of action, but I still enjoyed it a lot anyway. ^_^

Mira continues to be sweet and adorable with her interactions with Kyoma and the kids. The bathroom scene was pure gold though, with Mira trying to change the subject altogether while Kyoma showed zero difference with his reaction. XD

Mira made the brave decision to save the kids from the falling cars, even though she knew she would take a lot of damage in the process. I'm glad that she's alright now. =D

Kyoma's past is starting to interest me more and more. I'm sure that they'll show his past in good detail later in the series as to why hates coils so much.

@Alexmakina They didn't realize she's a robot until sometime after witnessing her head flying off. It appears that androids and gynoids are common to some extent but she's supposed to be nearly indistinguishable from a human. I don't think that knowledge would help them much after the fact to the point where they show up just a few days later to play with her.

I wonder why they removed the whole children's grades arc. Maybe cause the impact on the story is not large enough.

Just imagine if this was your typical ecchi, Mira definitely would have slapped Kyoma for seeing her on the toilet.

I wasn't really expecting that ending, so I'm interested to see what that was all about.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Well, the blond kid for sure is familiar with robots given her house.

After learning the police didn't find anybody hurt and with her seeing Mira do an impossible jump, it gets pretty clear she isn't human.

What's strange is her not telling about the robot, but maybe she didn't want to make trouble for Mira in order to play with her later.

I liked the episode. It showed new characters, developed Mira's situation as Kyouma's partner and expalined what the Numbers are.

Mira is very cute. I wish most animu would check this series to see they don't need a whatever-dere to make a cute girl. Just make her cute and give her a nice personality without any big stereotype and let her interact with other characters.

Now this is one from few "Scary" part of Anime for me, personally.It's when a character that you like at first, became a "pain in the ass" later. I really hope that Mira will be like that just for this episode.

I guess it says quite a lot about the quality of anime nowadays when people are so happy about the toilet scene. She's not a human, it would be weird if he did react in any way. Surely there have to be sex robots in that world but would you react to your automatic vacuum cleaner emptying itself?

I'm seriously all over a Blu Ray release of this series. Anyway a slower paced episode setting up the characters, pacing was good and I though the numbers and coils was explained well. Can't wait for next weeks episode.

Kyouma reaction to walking in on Mira on the toilet was hilarious. And Mira processing what that hand gesture meant and her reaction to that and the partner misunderstanding was cute and funny.
And the COO woman dropping the 'beast of Grendel' got me more curious about his past and what happened.

Anyway a good episode, 4/5.

The thing is, she's not a vacuum cleaner. She's a very cute gynoid. Now, Kyoma doesn't give two fucks BECAUSE he hates modern technology and thus she is a toaster for him.

But in many series, characters don't think like that and we have several ones where the love of man and machine is the focus. And I think many in this show's settings would be turned on.

What I do agree with you is that people focusing too much on it tells too much of the industry as a whole, since normally that would be a nose bleed scene.

What? You're totally wrong with that analogy. There is just no way you could treat her like just a machine. She might have an inorganic body, but she is self-aware, sentient, shows emotions. The only reason to tell her she's "just a piece of junk" would be to HURT her.

That was funny episode.
but kinda thrilling though, when i saw she was holding her head on her hands.
just imagine if she was a real human. a real human heads will fly with bloods everywhere.
Numbers was pretty interesting, i want to know what happened if someone use it.
looking foward to the next episode.

Edit: that toilet scene was freaking funny XD
i was expecting her to get angry like any other harem show, but i forgot that she is a robot XD, and i realize that after seeing Kyouma's reaction XD. i watch too much ecchi,harem anime XD

and that kick at the end. that was kinda...cruel even though she is a robot...but well, whatever...XD (you have to take care of your own robot........ even though she's not his robot...)
