Title:Time of Eve
Also Called:Eve no Jikan
Released on year:2013
In a future Japan, where state-of-the-art android housekeepers have become an integral part of daily life, the fabric of society is tightly woven around the Three Laws of Robotics. These laws dictate the behavior of all androids, treating them as mere appliances rather than sentient beings. However, a faction of individuals, known as "android-holics," dare to defy the prevailing norms and harbor a profound admiration for these mechanical marvels, enduring the scorn of the masses. Amongst these individuals is Rikuo Sakisaka, someone raised to comply with society's rigid beliefs about androids. For him, androids have always occupied a strictly non-human place in his world. But fate takes a dramatic turn when an astonishing revelation surfaces from the depths of his household android, Sammy's, activity logs. Suddenly, Rikuo finds himself thrust into a clandestine journey that leads him to a peculiar establishment known as Eve no Jikan—a café that operates on a single rule: there shall be no discrimination between humans and androids. Intrigued and driven by insatiable curiosity, Rikuo embarks on a quest to unravel the enigma behind Sammy's anomalous conduct. As he delves deeper into the mysteries of Eve no Jikan, he is confronted with the profound question of what truly separates humans from their artificially intelligent counterparts. Brace yourself for an enthralling adventure as Rikuo strives to unearth the truth and pave the way for a future where humanity and technology coexist harmoniously.
