This science fiction omnibus depicting a doctor who "treats" robot and humanoid problems takes place in the near future, when humanoids with artificial intelligence account for 10% of the population. The main character, Dr. Sudo Hikaru, also has the undercover name Moggadeet, under which he secretly takes on illegal medical procedures. For example, for a man who inadvertently infected his humanoid wife with a computer virus when illegally backing up her data, Sudo proposes an operation to rewrite her memory using backup data. Could an existence replaced by backup data truly be said to be the same as it was before?

Preliminary (7/12 eps)
Any fan of Sci Fi should be familiar with the phrase "Pulp Science Fiction". Short stories published in magazines that were as cheap as the paper they were printed on, and yet the questions and ideas they proposed became inspirations for nearly a century's worth of novels, films, games, and stories of all types. AI no Idenshi pleasantly surprised me when I found myself watching it and couldn't help but be reminded of the countless works of Pulp Sci Fi. It describes itself as an omnibus of short stories, and I certainly am finding it worth my time.

To briefly explain what this show is ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (6/12 eps)
This is one of the most simple animes. The plot seemed nice, especially the tags but yet 6 episodes in and nothing interesting seem to happen.

Everyone in this show is annoying, it has more "Romance" than what they say in the tags. Sudo looks like a great MC but his background and personality is barely there yet. Lisa is the most annoying character in this show, she is very useless to the "plot" we do have. And all those weird side characters make it look like it's a different anime each time.

The plot is a mix of grey's anatomy and weird science fiction. It ...

Preliminary (7/12 eps)
Look, I came here for the ideas it brought in the first episode, a hard sci-fi about the nature of thinking machines and how they would be treated by a society who already treats humans badly. Instead of focusing on the interesting ideas of "what is the legal status of AI people" and "how does a society treat a new class of people" it wants to go through what ifs and not develop them.
The show has one or two good ideas that I really liked, the episode where a dude makes an AI version of his high school crush for sexual reasons is a ...
