Time of Eve!

Even no Jinkan, a.k.a Time of Eve, is a film of 6 OVA's collection which were realeased among the years 2008 and 2009. Moreover, this film put together all the OVA, it also adds extra material to make his comprehension easlier. Even no Jinkan take as base the three Isaac Asimov's robotic laws. We will enter in a world in which the robots are being used, mostly,  as servants and slaves; the human order them all kind of work. The robots will have a halo - the unique difference among a normal human and a robot - because the robots are so achieved that it's very difficult to distinguish if someone is a human or is a robot. In this world, we will meet to Rikuo - a student of the high school who have lived all his life with bots. Sammy - an engineer that works in the family of Rikuo - has discovered an anomaly after doing many investigations, this anomaly is a sentence: "Are you enjoying the time of eve?". Riuko will find out the results of Sammy's investigations, and he will tell everything to his best friend and classmate Masaki. Together will find a strange way to a strange coffee shop. This coffee shop, called 'The Time of Eve', would be completely normal, except a fact. There is a rule in this place, an idea very simple, and idea that will change everything and will be the main theme of the film: There's no differences among humans and robots.

I think that almost everyone has heard the three-law of robotic by Isaac Asimov:
- A robot may not injure a human, being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
- A robot must obey any orders fiven to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
- A robot must protect its own existene as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

If you are looking for action, you won't find it here, because the structure of the film are the conversations that the main characters will have with the customers of the bar. We won't ever know if the speakers are persons or robots. The robotss will be tied to the three laws in a way that neither Rikuo nor Masaki would can imagine, there are many interpretations of the film in which we will find obvious gaps and deep reflexions.

The characters will see that the caffee is a word completely different, as he would be in a dream in which everyone has his own rules. A dream in which everyone will be free, but they will be forced to wake up for facing the troubles of the real life. A caffee that will be the reality of the main characters, and their normal life will be an illusion from which they try to escape.

We will watch a world in that the more human are robots, who achieve the liberty in that small part of the world, because they are despised and treated like scum. Well, like everything isn't going to be pink. The film, crearly inspirated in the book 'I, Robot' bye Asimov; we'll watch that many people hate the robot because many facts, like for example, they stole the jobs. This faction is represented by the 'Ethics Committee', which promotes the separation between men and robots. This committee try to close all the places annuoncements like ' Would you eat a tomato grown by a machine? ' in which the robots are with humans for along time.
