She looks so realistic that most wouldn't know she's an android until she activates.

O.o Wow

Kinda creepy and yet pretty and amazing at the same time. It seems like artificial humans are not that far away into the future.

It's a steep climb. Until they reach the peak, I think my preferences will remain dialed on anime-inspired characters over these 'hyper-realistic' ones, personally...

That's nice that she can use sign language, especially since Japan has a large aging population so hearing loss will be common in the future.
