More like painful memories.
How am I supposed to get through 12 episodes of this suffering?
more like Isla fap bait
if she wasn't there, noone would ever watch it
Isla was old and busted the moment Tsukasa stepped into the office and we met our new goddess.
☑ Flesh-and-blood human being.
☑ No expiration date.
☑ No emotional baggage.
☑ Shitty tsundere.
☑ Very cute.
It's melodrama, but it's actually very convincing and everyone can relate to it. Actually made me sad on several occasions.
Too bad the show's unfunny slapstick comedy drowns the rest and the characters are generic as fuck.
This is a show that has a great plot and can deliver some good message (about planned obsolescence and the capitalist society we live, how everything is turning to "easy-to-use, easy-to-throw") but it is shitting all over it with its awful and pathetic execution.
Not just the piss jokes, buddy. Every last one of the supposedly funny situations were predictable, forced, and unfunny. The worst were the so-called scene where Isla tries to "convince" the old woman. Repeatedly, with always the same stuff only with more. It's so overdone, I actually facepalmed when watching, and that happens very rarely.
The piss joke was funny, but wouldn't an android have the capability of holding fluids for an extended amount of time? I know a Giftia is supposed to mimic the appearance and behavior of a human, but I don't see the point in retaining physical human flaws in the design.
So a Giftia that exceeds it's time-span without retrieval "breaks" and causes trouble for everyone? Just what exactly does that mean, how is this worse than just returning them at the owner's leisure, after they brick themselves?
I want to see lolibot Nina go rampant, damnit.
>>123570233 here. It's melodrama, but this is actually the best part of the anime but it's actually pretty well done. If you don't think that this is sad and painful, you've obviously never dealt with the suffering of losing someone, and you don't understand the concept behind it the show.
The problem lies with the rest.
I don't know how you fucks think it's super emotional. It was good but you guys are making it out to be the 2nd coming of Clannad/Angel beats or some shit.
The execution is done well but the setting of how you're gonna have one patient per 2 episodes and their back story and how they're gonna day makes it seem like Death Parade was a show to go crying over about.
Specula: If a Giftia exceeds its designated time-span, it loses its chance at "re-incarnation" through a wipe and re-install.
Instead, it starts to experience errors, and then deteriorates like an advanced Alzheimer's patient. Through misguided compassion, the office chose not to "retire" Isla, and she is headed for Bad End.
Because it wasn't the body they needed to be replaced, you could keep the same body but without memories. It would be more like changing your hard drive and keeping the same case
See >>123571577 and that's also exactly what the show is trying to make you see. The limited time is a bad and a good thing.
Let's say you made lots of good memories with a person. If that person died all of a sudden but someone told you it would be possible to transfer the memories and personality into another person, would you really do it?
Is it better to hang on to the past with a shadow of what you had, or to let go?
At least they added some comedy parts though so it wasn't all sad.
I can't believe I cried in the first fuckin episode.
The last anime that managed to do that to me was Natsume.
> If that person died all of a sudden but someone told you it would be possible to transfer the memories and personality into another person, would you really do it?
Yes? It would be the exact same person. The container of the memories and personality is completely irrelevant.
The issue the show brought up was the opposite: keeping the body but uploading a new personality.
Ok, so it would be akin to the data in the harddrive being corrupt as opposed to the actual hard drive? Is there no way to save that before it goes crazy are or is the technology not that advanced yet?
>I can't believe I cried in the first fuckin episode.
I really hope no one on /a/ actually was sad after that episode.
They're fucking robots. Robots don't have feelings. You don't need to feel sorry for them.
> The worst were the so-called scene
I swear, no one on 4chan knows how to use "so-called" or scare quotes properly. It is a scene. This is not up for debate. What Isla was trying to do was convince the woman. This is also not up for debate. Learn how to use language.
I miss the days when this was only half a buzzword.
In case you are living outside of the glorious nippon.
Jesus people are so desperate to not like something or to stand out that they'll find a way to criticize and label negatively ANYTHING.
I'm not even joking, these criticisms have become generic and typical because these people use the exact same wording and buzzwords.
Clearly their memories are based on something less tangible. Maybe it's some sort of entangled photonic memory which inevitably degrades over time and can't be copied because of Heisenberg.
Does everyone have to love an anime to post in its threads? He's not even hating the show, just listing flaws that bring it down in his opinion.
I'm just waiting for the great twist to be that the memories/personality of androids are stored on actual human brains that simply can't be kept alive for longer than 9 1/3 years in mechanical android bodies because reasons.
Calling it now.
Why do companies make androids to begin with? As replacement family members or something, like in the case of that grandma? Is there some population for adoption/fertility crisis going on in this near future?
They are going to play up Isla's approaching expiration all season but in the last three episodes or so it will turn out MC has terminal cancer or some shit and he dies first.
Screencap this shit.
It's not an eroge adptation. It's not an eroge adptation. It's not an eroge adptation. It's not an eroge adptation. It's not an eroge adptation. It's not an eroge adptation. It's not an eroge adptation. It's not an eroge adptation. It's not an eroge adptation. It's not an eroge adptation. It's not an eroge adptation. It's not an eroge adptation.
It's not an eroge adptation.
>taking back androids after nine years and four month
>not offering memory expansion for shamelessly high price
Can you feel it
The smell of animation quality dropping like a meteor after this
>I've... seen things... you people wouldn't believe
She's obviously either beyond or nearing her expiration date. How long before she goes full Roy Batty?
I liked the first episode but it's one of those shows where I find myself too distracted by the contrivances of the whole scenario to really care about what's happening on the screen. It's kinda like Psycho-Pass.
Specula: If a Giftia exceeds their service time there's a possibility they
"become human", and we venture into a legal and ethical grey area.
Yeah, well, my dad is Dogakobo and he told me about her before the public announcement.
I can't even begin to get my head around your logic, anon.
She could look like anything really it's her personality that's charming, everything from her errors excuses to the little blushing pout when she gave him her childish diary. Of course her looks do help.
I wonder when well see an episode of a /a/non that has to give up their waifu
I wouldn't say "forced", but it is transparently contracted.
The moment they showed the put-the-ring-on-the-finder of the process was the exact moment I gave up on this show because the only reason it exists is so that they can have a scene later where MC puts the ring on Robot-chan as both a sign of marriage and here going into the box.
I already predict the ending.
>MC falls inlove
>Isla about to expire
>New androids try to retrieve her
>MC protects her
>More drama and crying
>Then some magical bullshit happens where her memories don't get erased.
I can't believe how much this bothers me.
"We can create perfect AI, but a backup-solution? Now that's just crazy sci-fi. I mean they have these robots for at least 15 years and people seam to not want to part with them. Why have they not develop this by now?
Not this shit again.
>Two humans who think each other are Giftia
>Two Giftia who think each other are humans
>Little girl "adopted" by a Giftia and not told about her identity, the Giftia doesn't want to leave but the girl knew the whole time
Let's see how Time of Eve we can get.
Let me tell you the reality of this story
>MC is a giftia who has been working at the terminal services for ten years
>When he was in the elevator his personality and memories had just been erased. Isla was crying because it was her farewell while he couldn't remember her anymore
>After rebooting he went back to the first programmed command in his system, which was to report to terminal services as his first job.
calling it right now.
I wanted my original SOL, didn't want to sign up for ride to purgratory
Actually what happens is
that the soul degradation is complete BS and they don't break down after that timeframe. And the synthetic souls themselves are not artificial at all, but rather the minds of others that will have their original memories begin to return once the time limit is hit which is interpreted by everyone else as errors in memory when its really just confusion as their memories resurface and conflict with the past 9 years. Why? MONEY
How long till MC gives Isla a kiss in her mouth?
You mean't melodramatic. And stop using words with negative connotations, when you didn't mean to. What you wrote meant
>It's bad and cheap drama, but this is actually the best part of the anime
What the fuck?
>there will never be a canon crossover
>tfw miss Mikakunin de Shinkoukei and GJ-bu
>tfw I'll probably miss this show too
Stop making up stupid twist endings. This will be a lighthearted but melancholic SOL about friendship, love, saying goodbye and what it means to be human.
Also the MC will die being crushed by main girl's mechanical pelvis when they try to have sex in the last episode
I can't believe they put these white outlines around everyone's heads
I thought they were just doing that as a mashiro joke in engaged. It's fucking hideous, what is wrong with these people?
>>123568103 is just a teenaged edgelord being himself.
>Taking this moe shit seriously
Are you guys retards?
Oh, just imagine if it ended with the team somehow finding out the "expiry date" was imposed planned obsolescence AND the oh-so-foreshadowed Isla reaching her expiry date.
The potential for MC rageface... someone fund it!
Bearing in mind we can not build anything even near like Isla right now (what with all the fance climbing, jumping, walking, even if we leave AI programming alone...), we need to go full SciFi on this.
Most scifi writers use cop outs, like superbatteries, portable nuclear power, zero point modules and shit like that.
But if you think about it logically, there's another method: internal fermentation of biomatter to create alcohol, methane and the like. Sure, burning those is NOT very effective, as it only gets about 2-5% of the total energy potential, but if you imagine some form of cathalythic processing on top... then creating a humanoid robot that can actually eat and make some use of the food begins sounding plausible. Of course, if you assume this, it'd be logical that when not in plain view, Isla would prefer to down some gas and wash it down with vodka for a quick refuelling, or would be used to clean out any leftovers and spoilt stuff, as it'd make no functional difference (only esthetic one). Still, having an android eat would still be viable.
Also, in such a setting, excess water would have to be purged... and Isla's behavior can be explained as a quirk of programming, which was done so as to cause "life-like" behavior graded with severity of the overfill of storage capacity.
