FIRST of all I would like to thank you for making SUCH an awesome anime!! I love it so much that I've applied to try and become a moderator of the series! XD Here's a simple question :

Might the last episode be named as "Eve"? Since the first 3 are all after the character's names...

First question:
What made you decide to create an anime like this?

2. Why did you decide not to focus on one or two character only like in other animes?

3. In you're own opinion if androids really existed do you think they should have human emotion/feelings?

Hi:D

Thanks for showing us viewers that there are a lot of options in making an anime.

And this is my question: How did you come up with the idea to mix future Japan with androids? Did you like have something that inspired you or?

Thanks again . D-O

Questions:

- With today's anime culture overflowing with "Humans interacting with Robots" scenarios and stories, how did your team approach this kind of problem? What factors and obstacles did you guys had to consider so that Eve no Jikan wasn't just another one of those generic animes?

- Lets face it: 6 episodes is too short for a real plot to unfold. Heck, the first 3 episodes were just character introductions and parts of it were Rikuo's realization that these kinds of Human-Robot interactions are possible. Will there be a chance for him to "apply" those things he's learning inside the cafe to the outside world were the human society has a clear stance on ethical issues? (this is basically asking if you guys plan to create a season or OVA with a real plot)

Comments on the show:

First thing I noticed was its art: it was "realistic" in an anime sense. Then the overall plot, because I prefer stories that can happen in the real world. The thing that got me hooked was its cinematography; it was fast paced, yet easy to follow. You never get bored during those 15 minutes.

Congratulations on being able to create a fanbase that is willing to wait 2 months for 15 mins of entertainment. Few studios are able to do that.

Hi, since the people before me already asked the same questions I was thinking repeatedly; I thought of some questions of my own.

I've always wondered ...
Could you show us/tell us what tools you use to create this anime?

Also could you show us around the studio or wherever you create this anime?

xD a Q&A huh?

my question: what was the purpose of creating the setting in a cafe?

Hi,

I'll just like to ask if you feel the 6 six episodes are enough to encapsulate this issue, and give a really good ending.

I understand that your answer to this issue will be expressed via the series, but it feels inadequate, especially since episode 1 - 3 all seem to be touching on different parts of the issue - with no strings attached. It feels like the remaining episodes are going to be similar, exploring and giving no answer.

I love the way this has been going, but I don't know if I can accept a " Life's just like that, get used to it" ending especially since so much effort has been going in plot wise and in the animation.

Not to mention waiting 2 months per episode...!!!

Thanks

p.s. I'll also like to ask if Yasashi Jikan had anything to do with this. Too similar.

Very Nice job with "Time of Eve". Here's a couple questions I thought of....

1: Did movies from Makoto Shinkai ("Voices of a Distant Star", "Places Promised in Our Early Days", and "5 Centimeters Per Second") have influence on the design of this anime? Or is this a new concept (new trend) for your staff to use for future titles?
2: How has the release of this ONA over CrunchyRoll (or with English subtitles) effected the series?
3: Do you think that because a series is Officially Subtitled over the internet ("Strike Witches", "Linebarrels of Iron", etc) that that diminishes the ability to license in North America?
4: I am a firm believer that CR is doing what other sites need to do; simultaneously release anime titles with official subs with an intent to purchase. What influenced you to go this route and will you continue?
5: Do you like Chocolate? (because if you come to an American anime convention I will be sure to give you some)

Okay, so maybe I thought of a bit more that intended. Sorry.

Hi there~

I must say that I'm a big fan of Time of Eve. I eagerly anticipate each of its episodes and found my time worth it after the very wait.

Questions:
1- What inspired you to do what you do?
2- Do you have any tips for aspiring writers and animation directors out there?
3- What are the drawbacks and the advantages of your job?
4- Do you feel the advantages out weights the drawbacks?
5- After you finished your latest piece of work, what do you feel?

Thanks in advance. I look forward for your answers and the latest episodes of Time of Eve. Again, I love the show and I thank you for bringing the show all together. Well done. =]

Greetings Mr. Yoshiura!

First off, I would like to commend you on your work. Your anime videos have given me a profound insight on many things in life.

Just one question for me:

Can you please tell us what hardware and software do you utilize to create your projects? I'm am hugely impressed by the quality of work independent anime creators such as yourself can produce and perhaps your disclosure of the equipment used in developing your project can greatly help aspiring individuals in the animation industry.

Thank you.

You seem to have a certain style throughout the works of yours that I've seen (Pale Cocoon, Mizu no Kotoba and now this) with dynamic camera angels, interesting lighting choices that sometimes seem subdued, and what seems like a limited color pallet leading to a lifelike atmosphere. When this is coupled with the character interactions in the works, it makes for very realistic situations in worlds that aren't possible yet.

Where did this unique style come from, and in your works, do you deliberately aim to create something that the audience can relate to, regardless of the situation the characters are in?

I also wonder if you might set your sights on doing a story set in a world "more" fantastical (magic, epic quests and such) than what you've done so far. Thanks.
