Time of Eve
イヴの時間 (Ivu no Jikan)

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

Time of Eve is a six-part web series, but for the sake of keeping things simple, I will consider it as an OVA.

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 ending theme in episode 6 is “Time of Tenderness” (やさしい時間の中で Yasashii Jikan no Naka de), performed by Rie Tanaka, the voice actress for Sammy.

The pacing is a little slow as this is a dialog driven anime. As the series 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. There is also a movie version that compiled all 6 episodes together, with additional new scenes. If given a choice between the two, I would recommend the movie version instead. The Time of Eve anime contains mild suggestive themes/dialogs and is appropriate for young teens and older.
