My Review

 

Plastic Memories Recommendation Chart

This anime is a love comedy, it is a love story more than comedy. This anime is made up of only 13 episodes. Why do they do that to an anime that I fall in love with? I am always like whyyyyyyyy! Do they like to see me bald from pulling my hair out? They could have made it longer and made the story better! Since it was 13 episodes, I felt like this anime was overloaded, and they didn’t take their time so that they could have finished it in a short time. That was the sad part of this anime for me. You know what I am talking about if you have watched this anime! This anime has the potential to be a great anime if they wouldn’t have rushed it! Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that it isn’t a great anime, I am just saying don’t rush it and let it build all the way to the climax. It is definitely the time to watch and is a must see, I must warn you though prepare to keep something by you to wipe your eyes towards the end!

It is a good world for Giftia! They have a Giftia rights, just like we have human rights. For example, in episodes 5 when a Giftia was kidnapped by the guy from the underground market, they had to search where she was at. I was like they are android robots, they don’t have GPS or something like that? But I found out that they have a Giftia right which the human has to give them as a privacy policy, I thought that was so nice! They recognize them as human too. But then that started me wondering, why does Gifitia’s only have a longevity of 9 years? Why do they have to erase a date?

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any answers. My guess is that this is the technology they have in this anime, that is as far as their skills would take them. Do you know what I mean? It is like we have a smartphone which we have to charge battery often (Or maybe only my smartphone lol). But I am sure in the future, they will find a way to use the battery longer as technology skills grow, and we don’t have to keep on charging battery often like we do now.

I think the reason why they erase the data is to protect the private policy for a human. That is why people from underground market try to steal Giftia from people, and blackmail them as seeing the Giftia’s data? I don’t know for sure, but that is what I think. Personally, I wanted this anime to explain those things through the episodes.

But it was good anime and will make you cry! I recommend this anime to people who want to watch a sad love story anime!
