Looks promising. I look forward to a day when it's released. The plot a robot becomes like a human reminds me of Sasami-san@Ganbaranai, in which one of the characters is a robot who wants to be a human.

Reminds me of the art in Ao Haru Ride.

EDIT: Lol not surprised that the chara design is by Sakisaka Io, I'd recognize her eye style anywhere.

Already out the PV:

The girl (Kurumi) looks better in the PV (the first picture not benefited).

It seems that the main character is the robot (Haru).

I like the design, I will probably check it out when it's released/aired. I only wonder how "subtle" the sci-fi is, aside from the obvious fact that the guy is an android. I prefer realistic stories, to be honest, but as long as the robot is only the sci-fi part, I guess it's okay. (Maybe I'm asking too much, but I just don't like unrealistic things so much. Subtle sci-fi, fantasy, surrealism, etc. is okay, but... yeah, as long as it's not overwhelming.)

Well, will watch. Sounds like an interesting romance story + designs by Sakisaka Io.

Now, I hope for a Strobe Edge or Ao Haru Ride anime adaption...

At first I mistook it for the adaptation of this short story and thought "how the fuck is this original?" Then I read the synopsis.

To be honest, I wouldn't watch either.

Looks like it will be a nice romance.

I'm going on record saying this is gonna suck. For he had a part in the butchering of Guilty Crown.

The guy looks like a duplicate design of the main character from [C].
The girl though, she does have that shoujo kind of look like she was designed by the same people who made Penguindrum. Idk. .-.
