Haha, so I saw the Ghost in the Shell episode and noticed the striking resemblance between that episode and this animation. I would like to point out that I did not intend to write a story based off that episode.

Much thanks for the front page!


(I know it's a cheesy title, but it explained the animation well)

Read the emails at the "Replay" screen to uncover some back-stories.

Dr. Andrick builds a robot that "can express" emotions.

Gotta admit, this was really shocking... I don't know how to express what I felt when I watched this, but thanks!

OMG, it ended when it started getting interesting. Too sudden, it ended...
Not bad, though.

Thanks, it's better to end it early then drag it out.

Programmed, huh?

I feel kinda bad for Dr. Andrick. He obviously DOES care about her, but she's just parroting the words. It's a pretty good flash, though!

samsonloftin responds:

Much thanks glad you enjoyed it.


Pretty decent...nice....
Can't help but...
Feels like someone has been playing megaman, and watching Chobits lately....:D

samsonloftin responds:

I have been playing Megaman and haven't played Chobits.

Anime already did it

Check out Robot Carnival. The wording to some degree was similar ; p a very incredibly similar concept too.

samsonloftin responds:

Ghost in the Shell also had a similar concept. So I guess great minds think alike. :D
