1st 2 acts of Yasuhiro Yoshiura's sci-fi anime to debut online on October 2

The Crunchyroll video-sharing website and the media production company Directions, Inc. have announced that Crunchyroll will premiere Yasuhiro Yoshiura's Time of Eve (Eve no Jikan) anime series in English and French in North America and Europe on October 2. Yoshiura and Studio Rikka — the creators of the Mizu no Kotoba and Pale Cocoon anime — developed this "non-hard science-fiction" story about everyday life in a future Japan populated by robots and life-like androids.

The first two acts of the series will be available on October 2 at 1:00 a.m. PT through advertising-supported streaming and through a download-to-own (DTO) option without digital rights management (DRM). Crunchyroll also plans to host a live question-and-answer session with Yoshiura this November.

The first act of Time of Eve had already been streamed for free in Japanese in August, but not the second act. (In the linked page, select "Movie" from the top menu and then select "Act 01: Akiko.")
