That's kinda weird... Not really keen on the idea of androids based on the deceased.

I'm all for innovation and technical developments... but raising interest through litterature and poems "spoken" by an unrefined machine is a bit silly.

Not as disrespectful as Bungo Stray Dogs making a running gag of Dazai Osamu's suicide attempts. *side-eyes them*

A late novelist coming back from the grave as an android... Quirky, but interesting. Now lucky people decades after his era will have a chance of seeing him. Smile

So they are just making it look like him, and it will just recite his works as read by his grandson? What a kooky and utterly pointless project! Laughing

The classy thing to do would have been to make a hologram of him. Holograms can't go on murderous rampages through campus.

I was thinking something similar. Ghosts combined with a robot uprising seems extra dangerous.

I don't know about you but this seems a little creepy to me. To me,it would be like building an android version of Mark Twain and having his descendant read some of his books. The Natsume family may be alright with something like this but I hope the Clemens family doesn't decide to do something like this.
