Are You Enjoying the Time of Eve?

Updated on May 6, 2019

A Future of Humans and Androids

Imagine the future with androids. They walk and talk and resemble human beings. You aren't too worried about distinguishing androids from humans because of the halo around their heads. You fervently adhere to Asimov's 3 Laws of Robotics, just to reassure yourself that robots or androids are programmed to be man's servants. They can't think, they can't feel. They were made to obey, they are nothing but mechanical slaves... or are they?

In Yasuhiro Yoshiura's six episode original net animation (and movie), Eve No Jikan, or Time of Eve, Rikuo, a young student, realizes that his house android has been acting independently. He soon discovers in his android's activity log a peculiar phrase: "Are you enjoying the time of Eve?" He tracks her movements and finds himself at a cafe called Eve no Jikan. While it has the comforts and warmth of a normal cafe, there is one main rule: No discrimination between androids and humans. Therefore, androids must turn off the halo around their heads.

Of course, this is baffling. How can you tell who is an android and who isn't? As the series progresses, Rikuo and his friend Masaki learn more about the other customers and soon figure out who are androids and who aren't. While dealing with propaganda from the Ethics Committee (people who believe androids should be banned, etc.) Rikuo and Masaki manage to let go of their prejudices towards androids and realize, that even though they aren't human, androids have feelings too.

With beautiful animation and an interesting plot, Eve no Jikan is a series and a movie that you will enjoy countless times. It will make you think, how will you act in a future with androids, and are you enjoying the time of Eve?
