Anime review: Kowarekake no Orgel

Title: Kowarekake no Orgel

Year: 2009

What is it about: A humanoid robot who rebooted herself after being trashed.

My review: This 1-episode anime (or OVA if you would) is quite similar to Chobits in terms of storyline. It's about a trashed robot who was picked up by a random guy, and was then rebooted (In this case, she rebooted herself). Then she was taught about the world around her.

However, don't expect this anime to be as ecchi as Chobits. Instead, this anime is really a potential tearjerker. However, the problem is that the main character is rather emotionless in expression. Then again, it really didn't matter because the focus is on the robot. While Chobits focuses on humour, this anime focuses on storyline. The robot even has a very special name: Flower. And Flower is downright cute!

There's nothing much to say about this anime though, as it only has one episode. This really puts Chobits to shame, considering how much this anime could convey in 28 minutes time. This is indeed a very impressive anime.

My rating (out of 10): 9
