Time of Eve Movie Review
Time of Eve: The Movie
イヴの時間 劇場版 (Eve no Jikan Gekijouban)

Synopsis

In the near future, probably in Japan, long after robots have been put to practical use, and not so long since human-type robots, or androids have appeared.

Due to the Robot Ethical Committee, people take it for granted to treat robots as electronic appliances. However, because of their human appearance, except for the halos above their heads, some humans — called dori-kei (android-style) — are becoming too attracted to these androids, and this is causing new social problems.

Rikuo has been taught to treat androids the way he does since he was a child. He does not think of androids as human beings and uses them as useful tools. One day, he discovers that ominous words were recorded in home-android Sammy's activity log:

"Are you enjoying the time of EVE?"

Tracing her footsteps with his friend Masaki, they arrive at a strange cafe that has put up the slogan not to discriminate between human beings and androids.

TL;DR Review

A theatrical feature-length version of the six-part web series Eve no Jikan, with additional new scenes. Watch the movie instead of the OVA if you can, as it provides a better story flow.

The animation utilized a mixture of 3D CGI with 2D animation art. It is a beautiful anime that blend the two pretty well. Some parts were pretty apparent when 3D CGI was used, while others you can’t quite be sure.

The theatrical release version features a new theme song called “I have a dream”, composed by Yuki Kajiura and performed by the pop-group Kalafina.

The pacing is a little slow as this is a dialog driven anime. As the movie progress, we explore deeper on each character at the cafe. Are they human? Android? Does it matter?

The anime tackle a lot of hard subjects like discrimination and what is acceptable for a society. Though the topics can be heavy, the levities sprinkle throughout help keep the anime’s tone light. It is also a touching tale that may leave some crying, but not me though.

I really enjoy this anime and would recommend it to anyone looking for a deep well-written story. The Time of Eve movie contains mild suggestive themes/dialogs and is appropriate for young teens and older.
