This anime is a masterpiece, plain and simple. It tells the story of two kids and the friends they make while also building a nuanced and sprawling world around them. The show radiates with life as one can always feel the emotions, be it hate, fear, or love, emerging from characters, be they human or otherwise. Each character was carefully crafted down to the minutest detail to give viewers a heartfelt experience and a message of "peace and acceptance for all". I wholeheartedly recommend this anime to all those who question the need for androids in society as well as those who seek a greater understanding of the nature of humans when confronted by the stigmatized and submissive.
