Anime Limited has confirmed to ANN that it will be distributing Pied Piper's kickstarter-funded edition of the film Time of Eve, by Patema Inverted director Yasuhiro Yoshiura.
The 'International Release Deluxe Edition' (pictured) is listed on Amazon UK for release on Monday January 5, with the following description:
Influenced by the Robot Ethics Committee, it's become common sense for people to treat androids like household appliances. Their appearance - indistinguishable from humans except for the ring over each android's head - has led some people to empathize unnecessarily with androids. Known as "android-holics", such people have become a social problem.
Rikuo, a high school student, has been taught from childhood that androids are not to be viewed as humans, and has always used them as convenient tools. One day Rikuo discovers some strange data in the behavior records of his family's household android, Sammy. Rikuo and his friend Masaki trace Sammy's movements, only to discover a mysterious cafe that features a house rule that "humans and robots are to be treated the same"...
