The Time of Eve

Yesterday I wasted my time watching all six episodes of The Time of Eve (Ivu no Jikan). I have to say, I liked it.
The story takes place in the not so distant future where androids have invaded daily lives. That is, they do your chores for you. And such. And have a Sims-like ring over their head. Anyway.
There’s this cafe called The Time of Eve where robots and humans come together, and there are no distinctions. The anime talks about the adventures and realizations of the main character as he and his friend meet androids and humans.
The thing that stands out about this anime is the use of 3d backgrounds with 2d characters, which worked out very nicely in my opinion. Too bad the series was so short though, since it could have used more development. 6 episodes, all of which only about 15 minutes each except the last. Was very good though.

Also, the Taliban are apparently using Playstation controllers to detonate bombs:

Random Japanese Word of the Day:
wwwww – Okay, so it’s not a word. It’s the Japanese equivalent of “lol,” and I have no idea how to pronounce it. It comes from 笑う(warau) “to laugh” and was shortened to wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. The number of w’s is up to you. Not really applicable in real life unless you want to sound like an idiot.
