About the Movie
Two high school boys grapple with their own humanity in a world where people are serviced by androids distinguished from their masters only by the halo-like rings above their heads. Public mores, enforced by the shadowy Robot Ethics Committee, dictate that androids be treated like appliances, and those who empathize with their robots are branded as "android-holics." Rikuo and his childhood pal Masaki find their assumptions about androids radically challenged when they come across Time of EVE, a cafe where androids and people are treated as equals. Liberated from the strictures of the Ethics Committee, Masaki and Rikuo must confront old wounds of betrayal and grief, and are faced with decisions that put their friendship and families on the line. Official selection at the Pusan International Film Festival 2011, New York International Children's Film Festival 2011, and Japan Media Arts Festival 2010.
Expanded version of the original series
I was a huge fan of the original series (available for free stream from crunchy roll). This movie version contains additional background scenes and all of the OVA content, some of which has not been available subtitled prior to now. Highly recommended, whether you saw the originals or not!
I'm a huge fan of the series. Saw the "webisodes" as they came out thanks to Crunchyroll.
This is by far the best version of the series. They've added a lot of new scenes that really expand the universe of Time of Eve a lot. And I mean A LOT!
If you're mildly interested, buy this. If you've already seen the show, you really must buy this!
Can't wait for a second season *fingers crossed*
I was hesitant to watch this film, but I decided to watch it anyway, and let me tell you, it's a really good film. I recommend it. I can't wait till the dub is actually released, even though most anime nerds prefer subs.
