    Default The new masterpiece-to-be: Eve no Jikan by Yasuhiro Yoshiura

    The creator of Aquatic Language and Pale Cocoon is making this wonderful 6 part OVA, Eve no Jikan. All his works so far are easily on par with Shinkai-sensei's works and his newest seems to not break this rule.

    Plot Summary:
    In the not too distant future androids have come into common usage. Taking the androids for granted, humans treat them as if they were common everyday tools, however, some people are unhealthily attracted to the androids due to their human-like appearance (save for a digital ring floating above their heads). This has become a social problem and these people are frowned upon as a result. Rikuo, who has taken androids for granted for his entire life, one day discovers that Sammy, his home android, has been acting strangely and finds a strange phrase recorded in her activity log. He, along with his friend Masaki, traces Sammy's footsteps and come upon an unusual cafe. This cafe's main rule is to not discriminate between humans and androids.
    After seeing this and Aquatic Language i think i know which is Yoshiuras favorite movie^^ but eve no jikan certainly has nothing to do with I Robot since Eve no Jikan is not an action series, it's like Yoshiuras other works rather critical of society.

    If you like non mainstream anime, watch this. i guess someone allready eng-subbed it even tho' its a webisode anime.

    €dit:
    http://www.pireze.org/blog/?p=3358 has subbed it in english. Enjoy.

    Is this in fact pandering, wish fulfillment bollucks aimed at ronery, basement dwelling degenerates which is posing as high-brow entertainment?

    I thought as much.

    Bullocks or bollocks are british slang for testicles, though they can be used to just generally mean something bad or unimpressive. Ronery is just lonely except with Rs to poke fun at the japanese pronounciation.

    well if that's the case, you're far of the mark jamie.
    it's far from mainstream rubbish like naruto, bleach and so on. (i guess those are the kind of stories you mean with "bollucks aimed at ronery")

    like i said, one can compare it with Shinkais works and Yoshiura being the author of pale cocoon speaks for itself.
    i wonder where you even get the idea that this is rubbish without even looking at it. Or maybe you've never seen Pale Cocoon and Aquatic Language before?

    You really aren't getting this. Naruto and co. are aimed at children and teenagers. When I said "ronery, basement dwelling degenerates" I meant otaku, which, judging by the synopsis you gave, it very much sounds like this show is marketed towards.
    So, armed with this new knowledge in hand, are you in a better position to answer my question?
