With the introduction of an ultra-advanced AI that surpasses human intelligence, beings that mankind is yet to fully comprehend made from materials far too advanced for human technology begin coming into being. Lacia, an hIE equipped with a black coffin-shaped device, is one of these. In boy-meets-girl fashion, 17-year-old Arato Endo has a fateful encounter with the artificial Lacia. For what purpose were these artificial beings created? Amid questions regarding the coexistence of these artificial beings and humans, a 17-year-old boy makes a decision...
So advanced android/robotic girls called hIEs have become common tools to help society in a futuristic world. And this Arato Endo has a fateful encounter with special high combat hIE: Type-001 Lacia during a near fatal incident.
There also appear to be other high combat hIEs too.
Character designs of the hIEs look great! Universe seems interesting. I do however have reservations about the animation. I thought Diomedea wasn't too bad as they did Kantai Collection: KanColle but the animation quality on this title so far is quite lacklustre.
Will certainly give this one a go for a few episodes.
