Honestly I wasn't expecting much because I hadn't heard much about the series or the studio and it was so short- but the episode was great, one of the best I've seen in a while. The animation was very good and the concept was very interesting.

I thought the music was a nice deviation from the norm; the ending music was so happy yet still synthetic. The simple music almost feels out of place there, but the unorthodox mashing together of stuff actually works pretty well here.

I think the camera effects were very well done and not out of place at all, and it really shows all the hard work the animation staff put into it. I'll definitely be following the rest of this (fairly short) series; hopefully it will deviate a bit from the "androids have feelings, too" cliche more than the first episode. The cafe makes for a good contrast between the androids' inner vs outer selves, though, that I imagine will be played upon a lot.

Although I actually wanted to wait till the whole series has ended, I was too bored to do so and therefore just watched the first episode.

Just, wow.

Indeed, the robotic laws and androids vs. humans story has been overdone, but in this case, it has presented itself quite well. I feel like the androids are silently fighting for just a bit of freedom, instead of having this 'big revolution'. Reminds me of the woman's movement and unapproved religions back in the middle ages (who gathered in neutral buildings to practice their church).

Liked the camera effects. Don't really have a big screen so no nausea for me... animation was great, and the video quality too. Didn't suspect that from something that's been streaming.

Well, time to watch the second one, since it's out anyway.

They are not nice to their Androids :(
15 mins is like an ordinary anime (without op & ed)

Loved it! Really liking the mood and setting. I think it was pretty obvious that that waitress was an android.

Really nice episode, the animation remind me of the one of Pale Cocoon.
Now what's the most interesting is to see how the main character with this change of hierarchic order. Apparently he's disturbed by what he has seen in the Time of Eve and he's changing is way of thinking, asking himself about android and seeing them more like human.

Very interesting episode in my opinion, beginning was a little slow but got better as it progressed. Wasn't quite used to how short it was though.

i liked the episode a lot! it seems longer than 15 mins probably because of the pausing and whatnot, but it's a decent take on the human v robot trend.

Question ... did they plagiarize Asimov's three laws without giving proper crediting? I enjoyed the episode so far, but I had to stop if they just took it from Asimov without giving him credit of any sort.

Please tell me some form of credit or his name is mentioned somewhere =.=

Interesting concept. Great animation. I also like the atmosphere so... this is definitely something I'll watch until the end.

Yes, the whole idea is actually quite unoriginal, and perhaps something that has been done to death, but this still seemed fresh and captivating in its own way. Looking forward to seeing how this all unfolds and develops further! :D

Atlast I've found a DL link, been waiting for this! I feel like watching a 2d-3d animation, the characters are very easy to adapt and in some unique way I feel like I'm in the story.

How human and android should live eh? very interesting, regarding it is in Japan.

It was okay. It didn't jump out at me, like I thought it would do. I had only heard glowing reviews about it and so, maybe I expected a little too much out of the first episode.

The animation and the general feel and style of the anime is something that did like. Though I can't say the same for the character designs.

Interested to see where it goes...

*EDIT: Was that a different android at the end? That wasn't Akiko, right? She was taller...

I could literally not be more pleased with this right now. Feels more like watching a movie than an anime; while the episode lasted only 15 minutes, it was time well-spent, just enough to get you into the story. Animation is top notch of course.

That was purely excellent.

Being the opening episode, I didn’t expect myself to be so eager and interested as I am right now, but it’s too fascinating. The animation is top-notch, the sound is pleasant, fitting and atmospheric, and the argument, while over-used in most sci-fi works, it’s engaging and doesn’t feel monotonous at all.

I’m really digging this ONA; I expect it to be as great in the five episodes left.
I think, then procrastinate.
Therefore, I am.

Well, to be fair, it's kinda silly to say "Asimov" in a conversation where those laws are universally excepted and put into practice in the android's programming. They are merely stating the rules in respects to how the Android will act.

Given everyone here seems to know Asimov on some level. The need to take a moment and tell the audience would seem rather silly.

Some people didn't seem to be surprised by the big reveal near the end of the episode. However, i certainly didn't see it coming and was a bit shocked like Rikuo was. His depression afterwards seems understandable.

I think the story is a good one. "Dori-kei" seems like a good plot theme to delve into. How much interaction should Humans and Androids have. Should we treat them like tools or should we treat them as we would another human? The whole "don't be too nice to them or we'll call you a Dori-kei" aspect is hanging in Rikuo and Misaka's thoughts as they struggle with the Cafe rule. Even Rikuo's sister teases him about it 2 times in the episode. The Dori-kei stigma bares a striking resemblance to the Otaku stigma placed on anime/gaming fans.

Wow, this story completely intrigued me. I am glad I decided to download this because it seems well worth the space. The animation is unique as well as the story. I saw that it was compared to chobits and although the simularity is there (for obvious reasons) i think this will be a much more quality anime than Chobits was. Excited to see how everything turns out and will most likely not go to sleep until I watch the rest of it. :P Sure seems like it will make for a good night! ;D

This episode was amazing. I was feeling so torn between both opinions about androids. I can not wait to continue watching this show. This anime is refreshing to say the very least. I am really interested about where this show is going to take me..

I downloaded an episode of this and the subtitles didn't work, so I watched the raw. It was great.

Really fab animation and I'm in love with the OST already. Art style is nice too.

// Will edit this post when I watch subbed version.

Kay so I watched it with subs this time and I love it. I guess it was expected that the girl was a robot. After all, she was frozen for a couple of seconds when the guy asked her harder questions ^^; But wow, this is pretty good. The amount of emotion and suspense...
I like.

I honestly didn't see anything particularly amazing in this episode. It was alright, nothing special, a bit slow for my liking.

The ending on the other hand kind of pulled me in, which is good. The next episode might catch my interest, who knows! :D

I like this anime, very soothing and relaxing. Akiko is quite interesting so she'll probably end up as one of my favorites.

So the theme is equality between humans and robots. Hopefully there's some romance going on here.

Very interesting first episode. The story has been seen many times before, but somehow here it was presented in a way that made it more appealing. There's none of that violent confrontational edge one senses in other series.
