So, it was a brief but amazing run and we're left with a little message after Naoko and Sammy have a nice exchange. What were your thoughts on the episode, the clip after the credits, and or the possible second season? Hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did.

It was great!
I loved it
This anime really makes you think, "what if that really happened, how would I react to these things?".
I might just enjoy a future with human like robots
Who knows, but I doubt they can develop human emotions, let alone cry, like sammy did at the end.
But it was a great season, I hope for more

First impulse after watching Act 6 would be to look forward to a second season.

But now that I watched the entire series in one go, I realized that it concluded satisfactorily and there is no alarming need to continue any further. Every major question was answered and the rest could be left to human imagination.

Yasuhiro Yoshiura can make a second season if he wanted to, that would be nice for the fans. The problem with that is it could take away the cleverness of the whole show if it ends up spoonfeeding details to the viewers.

With that said, Time of Eve is great. It was a good 1 year of waiting in between episodes. Kudos to Studio Rikka.

With all the usage of 'first season' on the website and whatnot.. I'm quite sure there's going to be a second season. On what facet of the plot it focuses is another matter all together

I love this entire season!
I can't believe that the first episode aired a year ago today (well it was yesterday where i am but its close enough)
honestly, it looks to me like there is tons of room for plot expansion is season two.
I dont want to infer what season two will bring because i will deffinetly be wrong. this show doesnt seem to follow any predictable plot line like other anime do. and thats just exactly why i love it.
im expecting big things from Yasuhiro Yoshiura in the future whether it be with Time of Eve or other projects.

It was awesome, nothing better than this Anime, I was crying at the end. It moved me, threw me, hugged me, and then made me smile, this is like listening to clasical music, or apocalyptica

I probably need to do what you did, because I come away only wanting more and feeling that more questions were created than answers were given.

However, the main thing I bring away from Time of Eve is the incredible artistry and story telling that you just can't find on a regular basis in the anime industry.

I will certainly be on patrol watching for more works by this author and team.

I think there are some mysteries left unanswered. What was the incident? Who was the "victim"? (I thought the photo looked kind of like Akiko, or even Nagi.) Why did they leave the Time of Eve open? Any thoughts?

In the end, coexistence between mankind and robot kind are achieved by the new generation. When the old generation are trapped by their own prejudices against robots and fear of their own imperfections.

However, while the new generation are still obeying the rules set by the old generation, so do the robots too must obey the orders born from those same old prejudices against robots and fear of mankind's own imperfections.

And only when hopes from within the new generation became a need, that new generation will create their own future. When "creation is a need to break free from the past by becoming something original."

A fitting end.

I think that they left obvious enough opening for them to make another season if they want to (the Japanese tend to always leave enough unanswered questions in there stories so that they can make more, which is why their squeals are usually good and ours usually suck) but they did show you that the cafe was safe. after all the bar-tender was the one who was hurt in the last demonstration by the "ethics committee" and they are trying to avoid the negative press she would generate. and Sammy showed emotion while talking to our main character in their house... and that end clip after the credits.. was that the sister that gave Sammy the flower?

I OTOH would rather leave the whole open ending where it's at. So that nothing is sat in stone, when we're allowed to think and ponder the various meanings of the story by ourselves. After all, we are humans because we can think for ourselves, when we're not machines that rely on others to think for us.

I've seen a number of movies and series left open like that and never continued. Usually, that's the creator's way of leaving the rest to the viewers imagination, letting the viewer continue the story in his/her own mind. It's a way of allowing the characters to live on long after the story is ended, which is really what we'd like to happen.

Still, a second season would be nice, too.
