[Anime]Time of Eve (Eve no Jikan)

so i was just reading the tokyo anime fair 2010 animation awards and this was apparently the winner for the OVA award

all the other awards being won by summer wars and tv series award goes to eden of the east and ... well k-on, so i guess this stuffs gotta be awesome

and indeed it is, actually just watched ep1 before posting this but its pretty interesting so far, and the drawing is epic, all 3D backgrounds with 2D characters top notch quality and its a shorty with only 6eps

Plot Summary from Wikipedia
In the not too distant future androids have come into common usage. Rikuo, who has taken robots for granted for his entire life, one day discovers that Sammy, his home android, has been acting independently and coming and going on her own. He finds a strange phrase recorded in her activity log, "Are you enjoying the Time of Eve?". He, along with his friend Masaki, traces Sammy's movements and finds an unusual cafe, "The Time of Eve". Nagi, the waitress, informs them that the cafe's main rule is to not discriminate between humans and androids. Within the cafe androids do not display their status rings, and, when patrons depart, the door is automatically locked for two minutes to prevent someone from following them to discover their true nature.

The first few episodes involve conversations between Rikuo (usually accompanied by Masaki) and the cafe regulars: the bubbly Akiko, child Chie and her elderly guardian, the lovers Koji and Rina, and others. These conversations make frequent allusion to Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics, often highlighting surprising interpretations of those laws, some of which form apparent loopholes. The overarching plot involves the beginnings of independence displayed by the androids, what they do with that independence within the bounds of the three laws, and what motivates them. Secondary plots involve the individual stories of each android the protagonists encounter in the cafe, and how they come to discover which patrons are androids and which are not.

They ended the series too soon. There wasn't much character development. You start to get a taste of each character and then they end the shit with no 2nd season. It had the potential to be an awesome anime but it ended with disappointment.
