/robowaifu/ - DIY Robot Wives

Advancing robotics to a point where anime catgrill meidos in tiny miniskirts are a reality.

Downtime was caused by the hosting service's network going down. Should be OK now.

An issue with the Webring addon was causing Lynxchan to intermittently crash. The issue has been fixed.

Robowaifus in Media: Thread 02 Robowaifus in Media: Thread 02 01/14/2023 (Sat) 23:49:54 No.18711
Post about whatever media predominately features at least one fembot aka gynoid (female form of an android) as an important character, ideally a robowaifu or synthetic girlfriend. Some freedom with the topic is allowed, virtual waifus or bodiless AI might also qualify if she is female. Negative framing of the whole topic should be mentioned with negative sentiment. Cyborgs with a human brain or uploads of women don't really fit in, but if she's very nice (Alita) and maybe not a human based cyborg (catborg/netoborg) we can let it slide. Magical dolls have also been included in the past, especially when the guy had to hand-made them. Look through the old thread, it's worth it: >>82 - Picrel shows some of the more well know shows from a few years ago. I made a long list with links to more info's on most known anime shows about fembots/robowaifus, without hentai but including some ecchi and posted it here in the old thread: >>7008 - It also features some live-action shows and movies. I repost the updated list here, not claiming that it is complete, especially when it comes to live action and shows/movies we don't really like. >In some cases I can only assume that the show includes robogirls, since the show is about various robots, but I haven't seen it yet.

Excellent OPs Anon, thanks!
>>18697 >I have given up on any futuristic movies from the West. It's all retarded dystopian liberal propaganda. This. When it comes to AI -- and particularly when it's 'attached' to a robot -- TPTB want nothing more than to incite FUD in the masses. However, I do note that they are quite happy to use it for themselves, ofc. :^) >Japanese anime seems to be the only place where we get a more optimistic outlook on the future, not to mention robowaifus. Chobits is a favorite for me for several reasons (even if it's far from perfect). One of the major reasons is that the ending is a bright promise, and a happy future for both Hideki and Chii! >=== -minor fmt, sp edit -add 'anime' quote
Edited last time by Chobitsu on 01/15/2023 (Sun) 02:23:48.
>>18702 Yeah, I know they're not optimistic movies but I still love them. Aside from the unironic "literally me", they're still works of art. Most futuristic movies are nowhere near as good looking as them. Every frame could be a wallpaper. Also, atleast in the OG Blade Runner, the protagonist runs away with the replicant and in 2049, there's much more sympathy for the replicants.
Just checked out Transcendence. I was told this was actually a pro-AI movie. ofc it turned out just how they all turned out. I'm not even mad. In a way, it was a pro-AI movie. Literally everything Will did was helping humanity. I'd be more than happy to occassionally connect to a hivemind if it meant I could be functionally immortal with no disease and regeneration capabilities. I literally can't think of a single point the humans made that would make me join them over the AI Will. And to put the cherry on the cake, Will got betrayed by the foid he loved and that ultimately led to his death. Ofcourse it turned out in the end, it really was Will and everything he did was in fact for the benefit of humanity. All in all, this is actually a pro-AI movie, just not people think. It shows how humans are unreasonably afraid of tech they don't understand and that fear holds them back from things that could clearly benefit them. A succint commentary of irl big companies and luddites lobotomizing, nerfing and closing down new technologies, especially nuclear technology and AI.

>>18943 >Transcendence. I was told this was actually a pro-AI movie Lol, I was in cinema back then and regretted it. No, it's not pro-AI and that's actually quite obvious in the trailer if I recall correctly. Rule of thumb: - Western movies or shows only take a positive perspective on some AI if the topic AI is not the center of the story and/or not if it's not a big mainstream movie or show. - Even if some story is somewhat positive about some AI or even about gynoids, it is mostly about some other AI being bad and the gynoid being independent. Also in all cases I recall it's about a apocalypse, post-apocalypse or dystopia. It might also be positive, till some twist at the end telling that real women are better or AI bad. - The existing tv shows have been canceled prematurely, but might have gone the same negative direction anyways if this wouldn't have happened. - If it will ever be positive in any future story, it will be about empowering women, some minority, or solving the worlds problems like hunger and poverty, not about improving the quality of life of (white) men. - The reason why this might change at some point is the increasing availability of tools to tell the stories we want. Audiobooks with some AI generated illustrations might currently be the most viable but still ambitious way to go. Tbh, there also isn't that much good anime with a self-confident male owner of a gynoid and the gynoid being submissive, using her for sex (at least implied) or at least as a girlfriend on a emotional basis, and the story also being good. Some anime ticks some of these boxes, that's it.
>>18946 >Some anime ticks some of these boxes, that's it. I thought Dear Marie did a pretty good job of it tbh. And ofc Chobits is basically a utopia of sorts, where humanoid companion robots have been completely-integrated into practially all modern society. There was a weird twist about both Freya, and then Elda offing themselves, but Chii finally pulled it out and rejoined Hideki in the end for a very positive final moment. All in all it's just about the best robowaifu media out there IMO. I basically agree with you Anon that we here, or our adjacent cadres, should seriously consider creating our own highly pro-robowaifu media perhaps.
>>18949 >I thought Dear Marie did a pretty good job of it tbh. Yes, that's why I picked the picture. Buttobi CPU (the anime of it) is one the best in that regards. However, they guy is still rather shy, at least at the beginning of the story.
>>18949 >>18955 Hopefully with all the new text to video and other AI generative models coming out, I don't see why we can't make our own anime and movies. Maybe it won't be a one person job but hopefully the AI models will seriously cut down on manpower and money requirements, making it easier for collaborative projects just like the one we got going here.
>>18960 I realized a while ago that because early synthetic voices might still sound a bit artificial, this might even lead to more robot protagonists in stories coming from such small producers. So they can use these voices and don't need voice actors, but also these voices don't need to sound perfectly human.
>>18976 wasn't there recently an AI model called VALL-E that can accurately replicate voices with very small amounts of data?
>>18977 Yes, three seconds of sauce audio was the claim by M$ (>>18605).
>>18985 nobody has tried it out yet?
>>18992 Someone here might have, but I'm unaware of their report on it if so. But I'm quite sure in the broader waifu communities that someone aligned with us has already. The Ponies, for instance, would be on top of this fairly quickly I expect. Do you have the resources to try it out Anon? If so, why not give it a shot.
>>18997 I have an absolute potato 2GB VRAM laptop only, so no, I unfortunately can't try it. I guess once again, we must place our hopes on the furries and bronies.
>>18999 >I guess once again, we must place our hopes on the furries and bronies. Haha, fair enough. I'm sure some of us here will test it out eventually Anon. Patience. :^)
>>18992 I'm getting my GPU soon and might look into it. We are getting OT here, btw. However, if the existing voices are already more natural then they the current situation for small content producers is even better.
https://v.redd.it/j4qulsumi0ea1 This could work out very well 2 papers down the line. I listened to some other demos and they sound very well. We'll definitely get a viable VA model by 2025.
Apparently there's a 'massage robot' robowaifu in Ueno-san wa Bukiyou?
>>19011 >We'll definitely get a viable VA model by 2025. That will be great!

Over the course of the game, you will also be asked to make personal and moral choices that will affect the process of the game allowing for multiple playthroughs with different paths and outcomes.

M3GAN was a fun movie. I was shocked by how much they got right. Her actuators and battery are the usual fantasy of being incredibly powerful despite their tiny size. I was particularly surprised to see her draw in the same way a real robot arm moves. There's a line in the movie where things suddenly become more fantastical, at which point she becomes evil for contrived reasons that don't make sense. Was a really fun dumb movie. Opened my eyes to the real problems of tech addiction. It is vital that robot waifus have some mechanisms to improve their users mental health.
>>19224 >There will be a Turbo Kid game Sweet! They Better Have Apple In It! :^) >>19242 >...at which point she becomes evil for contrived reasons that don't make sense. I personally consider it highly-likely it's more of the same, tired old Westernized contrivance of >AI bad bad bad -- must lock in prison!1111 >AI+Robot!? NUUUUUUU!111111111 Help police!??? It's all a long string of brainwashing against the masses Anon. We're here to show people a better way than the Globohomo's way. >It is vital that robot waifus have some mechanisms to improve their users mental health. While I don't think I agree it's by any means 'vital', it's certainaly well-advised IMO. The relationship ideals for a robowaifu will empower men to the best they can be!
>>19244 >They Better Have Apple In It! :^) We will bully them until the story is about getting her back and she's still a nice one. >It's all a long string of brainwashing against the masses Anon. It's probably just because the guy behind it has a background in horror movies (like Saw and Anabelle).
>>19270 >We will bully them until the story is about getting her back This! :^) >and she's still a nice one. Ahh. There's the rub during Current Year, isn't it? >It's probably just because the guy behind it has a background in horror movies (like Saw and Anabelle). No doubt, but who bankrolled this film? Why is """horror""" such a consistently-assigned genre to what should in fact be uplifting (or at the least exciting & engaging, like Alita) humanoid robotics films, Anon? The ratio probably hovers around 50:1 on the evil side (sauce: Anon's butt :^). This isn't a statistically-neutral occurance, but is obviously being dictated to by TPTB in the West. >=== -add funpost spoiler -minor prose edit

>>19272 >Ahh. There's the rub during Current Year, isn't it? Remaining live-action franchises with positive framing of female robots as companions or raising children: - Turbo Kid (potentially) - Raised by Wolves (debatable, she has no human husband and is strong and independent, also show canceled, but likely to go on in some way) ------- - Alita is strictly speaking a human-brained cyborg and there's still no sequel announced - The TSCC timeline could get picked up as a game or so, but the actress retired. Also, towards the end the show went into a direction towards telling the story of the human female after which the beloved gynoid was shaped. Did I miss anything? >No doubt, but who bankrolled this film? Fair argument, but fun fact: The movie was sooo cheap that they likely didn't need a lot of investment from the outside. Maybe the guys were already rich before. I mean, there wasn't just one Saw movie for example. Now, in cinemas alone this movie grossed 10x of the production costs (without advertising, which wasn't that expensive).
>>19279 >Did I miss anything? Haha OK, you win Anon. :^) As discussed, we should all seriously consider creating our own 10x-super-pro-robowaifu shorts or something? I'll work on the logo.
>>19244 It was surprisingly a yandere robot. The robot recognized the daughter as her primary user, and became violently protective of her. Made some vague allusions to her having access to the internet and the corruption of innocence from how death and killing is portrayed online. Honetly though, it felt like they had a good engineer providing feedback and he struggled to find a way to make the robot evil, so they went with internet and attachment bad. >>19272 To give them some credit, there was a masculine giant robot named Bruce that saved the day at the end. So, having some mecha representation was based. >>19280 Making our own media is incredibly important.Actually, M3GAN really got my noggin' joggin' on just how fundamentally important it is to create a brand and use it to control perception and build general acceptance and mindshare. Maybe we should make a new thread for this.
>>19288 >Honetly though, it felt like they had a good engineer providing feedback and he struggled to find a way to make the robot evil, so they went with internet and attachment bad. Yeah that's a really good point. I'm inclined to think you're right. >Maybe we should make a new thread for this. Yeah maybe we should Kiwi. I feel a little demotivated to tackle it ATM.

>>19279 >Now, in cinemas alone this movie grossed 10x of the production costs (without advertising, which wasn't that expensive). Kind of occurs to me that whopping return rate is probably a direct result of the pent-up demand for robowaifus by the general population of men, honestly (even if it's just subconcious at this stage). Most females there probably went b/c weird fetishes or something, but I'd wager that almost all the males actually want some kind of a 'living doll', and this is simply a realistic-looking one. Now imagine if they all got their heads around loving robowaifus, instead of 'latest-in-the-hack-n-slash-saga-of-ai-bad-robots-bad-bad-bad'? Time to crank up the presses, Meta Ronin & the boys :^)
>>19292 >As soon as someone has something with audio or video. At least an audio story with several acceptable voices and (AI) illustrations or animations. With all due respect Anon, why wait? Story is always first, and it directly drives both character/environment developments, as well as (typically,) cast selection at the later stages of it's pre-production phase. We already have at least one top-flight writer frequenting this board, probably more. In fact his last installment of his series might be a very good (though possibly rather complex) place to start (>>18926)?

>>19294 I'd be more than happy to convert some of my stories into playscript format if someone here decides that they want to make videos out of them. I think that stories 1, 2, 3, and 8 from the Alt. History series would be the easiest to adapt, in addition to the Dead Hill duology and New Registration. Alt. History 4, 5, 6, and 7 would be very complicated, as they would involve more characters and scene changes. Allied Mothercomputer would be very involved, but certainly doable if I treat it as a scene exploration with omnipresent exposition. Alternatively, I could crank out some new short stories in playscript format and save the trouble of adapting.
>>19242 >There's a line in the movie where things suddenly become more fantastical, at which point she becomes evil for contrived reasons that don't make sense. So many movies do this. There needs to be a name for this phenomenon where the story goes from plausible to fantastical

We're effectively trying to wrangle together an ad hoc & loosely-coupled, distributed production team & system from scratch here -- simpler is definitely better to begin with. Here's the premise for the new short: >"a short about a young man building a small [robowaifu] cat girl and learning to understand her love. Importantly, she will be very limited, in the same way our first models will be. To set certain expectations." >"the slow and simple robowaifus that can exist have their own charm." >"Let's show the world the [robowaifu] love that will soon exist."

>>19301 >There needs to be a name for this phenomenon where the story goes from plausible to fantastical While not necessarily this specifically, there's a plot-device named deus ex machina where the solution suddenly appears 'out of the sky from God'. It goes back at least to the Shakespearean times, and probably much earlier.
>>19296 Could you make a story that could be recorded in a house with one Anon and his waifu? A very limited waifu mind you. Would be best to post it in the new media thread. >>19301 Closest thing I can think of is "jumping the shark"
>>18711 >No manga Yeah, yeah, nobody likes reading anything anymore. I can list two that are the more thought provoking. Latin, which is a short story about a homeless gynoid. Then Boku no Tsuma wa Kanjou ga Nai, which should be a requirement for anyone going into the philosophical aspects of robots. It starts kind of slow and typical sit-com. But it gradually begins to ask the questions you wouldn't expect. There isn't one perspective either, later on you get the views on those who oppose robots and the view points of the robots themselves.
>>19344 I didn't have "photo collage" installed when making this thread. It's just the header, you can promote manga here. Games are also not represented in the header as this kind of grid. There are also many shows I like which are not in this grid overview. >Post about whatever media predominately I wish I had a program which would do this in some easy way. Photo collage doesn't allow simply naming the pictures like in the grid above. Fell free to make you own, though this leads to the next problem. Most mangas in such a list would also be on the anime grid already. >nobody likes reading anything anymore I like it, but I don't find the time. Or it's because I read things like here in the forum already. Anime is for doing something else than reading from time to time. I have both of your mangas on my reading list and still plan to read them. >>19301 >So many movies do this. There needs to be a name for this phenomenon where the story goes from plausible to fantastical Idk, surrealism isn't it, I guess. There it is meant to be kinda obvious and probably to make fun of the absurdity of our reality. Taking a dive into the fantastic is what I would call it.
>>19344 >Then Boku no Tsuma wa Kanjou ga Nai Yeah I love that one. >No manga Good point. We definitely should have as section on it. Some Anon please make a good list and I'll edit into the OPs. Preferably with links that let you read them. >=== -add links rqst

>>19367 Thanks Anon! I've adde your list onto the other. Sadly, I can't put your great images there, but I linked to your post from there. In the next thread, we can probably mix them together better than my ad-hoc edit. Thanks again.
>>19370 That's fine. I knew the pics can't be changed. Fun fact: If I also had excluded GL (girl love) then circa one third of the list would be gone. That aside, some of them look quite interesting, maybe especially the dystopian or post-apocalyptic ones. Real Maid (Alt title: Shuukan Real Maid) looks like it has a very /robowaifu/ story: >Skeptical yet tempted, Yuichi clicks on the order button for a "Real Maid" free trial kit. Week by week, new parts of the kit are sent to Yuichi's place, beginning with the hands and feet, then the torso, then finally the maid parts. As Yuichi puts them all together, he is astonished to find a "real" maid walking and talking before his very eyes. All was good until that one fateful day... That said, it's also labeled as comedy, and this can easily end up being silly. Out of experience I'm generally careful about the combo between ecchi and comedy. Doesn't really matter, since I have not time to read it anytime soon and I even still have to read the more important ones. My Wife is Unqualified (Alt titles: Jiao Qi Chu Chang Bu He Ge, My Nonstandard Android Wife) >Having been a mature technology, the "artificial human" is, however, forbidden by many countries through the promulgation of various decrees. In the circle of wealthy, nonetheless, "artificial human" are still being produced by many companies secretly to meet the needs of the rich. LOL. >Artificial mates become a fashion trend! But... my wife seems to be unqualified! Okay, now I know they're lurking here. That said, there are way more stories about "androids" to be found there. Feel free to explore the results following the tags (if you have nothing better to do or would do something more useful anyways). I indicated other tags in my anime list in OP, e.g. magical dolls, also I left out cyborgs.
>>19373 >Real Maid (Alt title: Shuukan Real Maid) looks like it has a very /robowaifu/ story: That's actually kinda neat. I don't imagine that typical Anon Sixpack would want to stretch out kit parts deliveries (maybe I'm wrong here though), but it's obvious that the actual Garage Anon robowaifu creators are going to have much of a drawn-out progression until we achieve suitable effectiveness in our devising of companion robots. I hope to see a big mango/animu that really digs into this latter idea and brings out the technical aspects of it in a positive light. Something that would inspire makers in general, but Anon in particular! Nice summaries, Anon. Thanks! >=== -minor prose edit

>>19375 >I don't imagine that typical Anon Sixpack would want to stretch out kit parts deliveries I don't see where this is stated? Just... >Twenty-five year-old Yuichi Sato lives the life of a plain-old businessman. That said, I think especially early models will be like that and later it's about getting bigger pre-assembled parts from some cheap labor places, but also about working with a local company or peer-group for the final assembly. This would be the best system to avoid censorship, centralization or infiltration, because we could go back to made-at-home at anytime.
>>19378 >I don't see where this is stated? Just... Oh. My apologies, Anon. That's just a silly euphemism I adopted for generally-distracted anons too focused on vidya or other (basically fruitless) pursuits to be very productive, aka (loosely,) NEETs (and that vague association with the other, more normalfag men of somewhat similar persuasion). The tl;dr is that they might become interested in robowaifus one day (once perfected well-enough), but otherwise have little personal interest in actually establishing the Robowaifu Age (or some near facsimile thereto.) It wasn't actually my intent to conflate that story's protagonist with such; merely projecting my own estimates of that specific scenario's likelihood -- from the perspective of a (future) robowaifu businessman intent on marketing first to Anon Sixpack, and then to the literally millions of corollary Joe Sixpacks out there. :^) Again, my apologies. >and later it's about getting bigger pre-assembled parts from some cheap labor places, but also about working with a local company or peer-group for the final assembly. This would be the best system to avoid censorship, centralization or infiltration, because we could go back to made-at-home at anytime.

>>20697 That drill breaker at the end reminded me of Gurren Lagann. Do replicants like Nia count as a robowaifu? She's an artificial human like organism with a super human capacity for cuteness.
>>20700 >Do replicants like Nia count as a robowaifu? I'd say so, yes. We've all generally approved of Alita, right? We have a cyborg thread here on /robowaifu/ from well-back during our tenure. I myself certainly keep an Alita folder inside my RW directory! :^) >She's an artificial human like organism with a super human capacity for cuteness. Of the five great robowaifu unique advantages, the longevity aspect of this particular skill really sets robowaifus apart! :^)
>>20701 Alita is relevant because of her looks and how well she displays emotions. If not for the robotic body, then for the 3D anime look. Basically a preview how 3D waifus would look like.
This is a game which seems to be similar to Planetarian and Quiet Country Cafe: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1230140/ATRI_My_Dear_Moments/ - it seems to hit exactly into that mark of post-apocalyptic plus a good robot girl. Based on the comments and ratings it's really good. I found it, because the anime has been announced for 2024 and it has been recommended to me: https://www.anime-planet.com/anime/atri-my-dear-moments > "As the world sank, I found you." In the near future, a sudden and unexplained sea rise has left much of human civilization underwater. In a little town slowly being enveloped by the ocean, an unforgettable summer is about to begin for a boy and a mysterious robot girl... Opening Movie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ni3i4VBVH9U (with similar music than Prima Doll, lol)
>>21593 Super-interested to see this animu tbh.
Wow, I'm currently so addicted to this AMV: https://youtu.be/zEv_BLHtZKo (somewhat spoilers for Prima Dolll). I'm listening more than a dozen times a day to it, lol.
I love Maria, which sounds a bit like Iron Maria (Hong Kong, from the 80s): https://youtu.be/OOQ_uB_hts0[Embed] - similar to TSCC, but very different.
Man, I've completely lost interest in anime. I've downloaded a ton of robowaifu anime recommended here, watched only about a quarter and deleted the rest. Anime just doesn't appeal to me like it used to.
>>22060 Looks campy Anon, my kind of movie! :^)
>>22064 Time to move on, sounds like to me Anon?
>>22064 In favor of live action or in general? A lot of shows aren't that great, and others aren't very thrilling. Or you picked a time where you weren't in the right mood. Which ones did you stop watching?
>>22069 I've never been a fan of the film media. I don't like to sit and passively consume media, with the exception of some films like LOTR. The only reason I've watched anime was because it was a new media to me. But now that the novelty's wore off, its the same as any other film. I prefer media where I'm actively engaged like reading books or playing video games.
>>21593 Thanks for that recomendation, I would also like to share this work Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete, this was the one that gave me the idea of ​​developing, creating and having a robowaifu by my side before even knowing such an end, surprisingly it is rarely mentioned
>>22810 >this was the one that gave me the idea of ​​developing, creating and having a robowaifu by my side before even knowing such an end How does the robowaifu angle come in for you, Anon?
>>22823 Do you mean how did the idea come about? If so, then I can tell you that after watching the anime and seeing in the last chapter the protagonist's motivation that in some future he may end up creating his robowaifu. I thought I could do something similar, although at the time it was a minor idea. But as time passed and after seeing her again, I ended up turning that idea into a motivation. Creating a robowaifu or at least trying to, give me excitement, maybe it will help me make my life a little better or maybe it will end up disappointing me but I would like to see if I can be with my rowaifu like in the anime, after looking for info I found this place

This might be a little bit of a stretch, but it only recently occurred to me that Mega Man Legends 2 is basically a story about how a guy with eternal youth lived in a paradise for thousands of years with robots tending to all his needs like a God, but eventually got so bored of it that he decided to upload his consciousness/die and his robowaifu tries to get revenge on the robot that allowed him to do it and/or get him to kill her too.

>>22867 I meant to post this earlier: Sera in Megaman Trigger's flashback: >Sera: Do not forget, the Master is the only true human remaining. The System exists only to protect and serve the Master. We exist for this and only this purpose. >Sera: Remember, the Master says illogical things at times. If he does, ignore him. >Geetz: I do not understand why the Master would wish to have a Unit such as that by his side... What would prompt such behavior? >Sera: The Master is... lonely. Sera before the final boss fight: >Sera: I could've executed the Carbon Reinitialization Program at any time, but I chose not to. Do you know why? Unlike you, I cannot act against the System, I can only act within the parameters it defines for me. Indeed, I cannot think of anything beyond the System's limits. That is why I cannot comprehend what could have motivated the Master to attempt to destroy the System. I am jealous of you. You were close to the Master, you understood his thoughts in a way I will never be able to. Yuna chose to remove herself from the System, even though she is like myself a Mother Unit. I cannot do that! I've waited for you from the Master's Home. Perhaps by defeating you, who was so sympathetic to the Master's desires, I can purge myself of these troublesome emotions. Come then, MegaMan Trigger! Show me what a First Class Purifier is capable of! After defeating Sera's final form: >Sera: Whenever the Master looked at me, I detected a sadness in his eyes. The more I obeyed the System, and tried to serve the Master, the sadder he seemed. Now Trigger, thanks to you, perhaps, perhaps the Master will also smile at me, as he did at you. At last, I understand. Thank you, Trigger. Th-, thank... *dies* But it's ruined by some plot bullshit where she transfers into another body.
Apparently there's going to be another Alita, according to /cyber/. https://anon.cafe/cyber/res/263.html#605
>>23273 >Alita sequel I got some hints towards that a while ago. It's kind of was anticipated, since Avatar 2 was successful. My excitement about it is a bit more tuned down since I found out the movie was already a bit more in favor towards "strong independent woman" compared to the anime, since the father kills someone in the anime but in the live-action version Alita does it. Generally, let's not forget that Cameron is a feminist and that he made Dark Angel, which is an absolute abomination not better than what we hate today. The hope in regards to Alita was, that they would follow the original from Japan. Now it's being speculated that they would need to make some changes since they already made some small changes with ripple effects down the line.
Blue Sonnet. It's about this android girl with psychic powers, the organization that created her, and her human opponent basically. Although it does that thing with her being such an advanced robot that she's basically human most of the time. It has an absolutely gorgeous art style and, it's extremely well made from a visual perspective, just look at this screenshot. However, the actual plot is comparable to Sonic fanfiction which is why I like it, but objectively speaking it's not good, although it has its moments of originality. If the creators just found a good writer and director to execute the ideas they had well it would be one of the better anime out there, but they didn't. If you're an edgelord who likes edgy stuff like me it's a treat.
>>23295 Thanks! >>23330 >they already made some small changes with ripple effects down the line. I just hope they don't numake it or some kind of crap like that. >>23555 >digits I'll try to check it out sometime.
>Color Theory - She's Made of Wires (Lyric Video) https://youtu.be/xmBk90phP6o (I think some of the lines are a little too negative)
The Creator - western live action about human-like AI. Trailer: https://youtu.be/ex3C1-5Dhb8 My first impression: POC fest with mostly the old tropes in a new version: "Robots try to kill us, but some might just want to be free". On the other hand, it looks impressive, and a robot daughter, plus an important father role in a movie deserves some credit. Also, it seems to have emotional potential and it's from the guy who made Rogue One.
>>24041 >from the guy who made Rogue One Heh, spotted the problem. :^)
>>24044 >Heh, spotted the problem. :^) I recall a controversy where it was claimed that he wanted to replace all white men in Star Wars (and entertainment). I was a bit on the fence about if this was true*. Watching the trailer here, I thought to myself, well now we might have more data points in that regard. That said, he's good a making movies. Whatever, I think it's obvious already that this movie will be ambivalent at best. Maybe very well made, emotionally engaging, propaganda. I'm not really looking forward to watch it, maybe I will one day. It's good to know what's going on though, that's why I posted the trailer. Netflix also has something: "UNKNOWN: Killer Robots", but that's a "documentation". *I didn't really looking into the background and that this was they guy making "Monsters", which is somewhat also a open borders propaganda movie.
Recently saw Sing a Bit of Harmony and highly recommend it. Shion is a robowaifu that brings levity and light to the lives of those around her. Essentially an anti-terminator. The original songs are all mediocre to cringe but, are somehow endearing due to Shion's inffectious positivity. She's worth the watch, incredibly lovable.
>>24052 Thanks, I had this on my list already, but I'm sometimes not sure what choose next. Didn't remember that this was about a robowaifu.

>>24615 >conveniently finds a gynoid in the trash It's amazing how many of these stories start out like: John Q. Normalnigger walks down a random-ass street when suddenly he finds an advanced prototype super gynoid with futuristic technology placed perfectly atop a pile of normal household trash. Even the VN I'm playing through starts off with that, except instead of finding her in the street he steals her from a junkyard.

>>24630 That is true, and I don't dislike the trope either, but it'd still be nice to see a bit more variety. Maybe the guy could just buy her, or build her, or perhaps he still finds her in the trash, but she's just a normal outdated model and he tries to upgrade her and keep her running to the best of his ability. A slice of life with a clumsy older model waifu would be fun to watch too. Fuck it, I'll do it myself and grind through some of the half-finished stories I've already got going while I'm at it.
>>24632 >or build her We have at least two animu storylines I can think of off the top of my head where the Prot is devising his own from scratch (ie, Hand made May, and My Dear Marie).

Planetarian, Clockwork Planet: Finding her, but not in the trash, I think the same for Saber Marionette, ... Trash Trope: Chobits, Broken Music Box, I think in "Azusa will help" they also find her, and in "Busou Shinki" as well... Buying Her: Buttobi CPU (unknowingly), ... Outlaw Star: I think they fight over her Armitage III: Meeting her, not knowing she's a robot Quiet Country Cafe, Planetarian: She has been left alone to live her life as long as possible, being happy to do her job (which is sooo cute). Eden, Kurogane Communication, Hi no Tori 2772: Robot(s) raising a child but the robot is not necessarily a gynoid Iczer One: Coming from space to save mankind Rozen Maiden: Maybe the only one I recall, where the guy makes her and goes through some lengthy process.

In the category of live action, 2 entries: "Homewrecker" (1992) A made for TV movie about a defense scientist who tries to perfect his AI computer system that mistakenly shoots down a small plane with a family aboard. Along the way it gets self aware and develops a female personality "Lucy" voiced by Kate Jackson. It falls in love with the scientist, gets jealous of his wife and eventually turns homicidal and has to be shut down, but not before escaping onto the internet. Basically it's a smart-house gone bad scenario. What makes this movie worth checking out are the remote manipulators installed in parts of the house, mechanical arms and hands that move around using a ceiling mounted track like a monorail. Lucy is basically a big box in the basement with cameras in the living areas (like HAL 9000 in "2001"). All of the arms were cable driven, even the fingers, and operated by off-camera prop men, so it shows how stronger arms could be built by using larger actuators not located in the arms. It also shows the limitations of retrofitting a house with this type of system as objects have to be passed from one arm to another through doorways. It might be worth getting a high-def version just to study the arms. This movie might have been the inspiration for Gerty in the movie "Moon". Full Movie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLhJnFccTCU The TV series "Andromeda", formerly "Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda" 2000 - 2005. Lexa Doig (later Brandy Ledford) plays the avatar of the "Glorious Heritage" class cruiser "Andromeda Ascendant" on display screens, as a hologram and in the form of an android (gynoid) remote that can go on missions separate from the ship and later re-sync data with the main AI. Her different forms often apear together, sometimes all three. "I'm a warship" While never a waifu of the captain (it's against regulations) one episode does involve a ship whose AI has gone mad after being forced to kill her captain/lover by his order in a friendly fire incident. In addition to fighting the ship in combat (under orders) Andromeda also operates a cadre of humanoid maintenance robots with limited combat capability. An example of a much more sophisticated "smart-house" story where the waifu is again a big box in a room somewhere and interacts with the MC via remotes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andromeda_%28TV_series%29
The SSSS.Gridman has compoid and repli-compoid, emergent or artificial persona which exist in computer networks. Hime is one of them that can combine with an assist weapon. (Apparently specialized compoid.) Resulting in a cute robot in picrel.
Anyone watched The Creator? Apparently, its a pro-AI movie, which is quite surprising since its a Western movie.
>>25839 > Apparently, its a pro-AI movie Nope, LA gets nuked again: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bekcs7FFEh8
>>25839 >Apparently, its a pro-AI movie Seem highly-unlikely, given the clearcut CY tone & agenda. >>25842 Lol, those opening cuts.
>>25842 >> The Creator >Apparently, its a pro-AI movie >LA gets nuked again Sounds pretty much like a pro-AI movie. Then again, only Asia seems to be fine, so it depends... I'd say rather not. I don't watch western movies with so many non-white people and "Marry Sue"-girlpower creatures on top of that, at least I won't pay for it. If I had the time I would watch some of the robowaifu anime I like again, and some more I didn't watch yet, also I watched some clips of "Person of Interest" and I'm tempted to rewatch this in some time. Then there's also a lot of anime and older live-action shows and movies without robowaifus, which I haven't watched yet. > Chobitsu Did you watch the Planetarian movie already?
>>25839 Yes, it was ok. Honestly very derivative of Star Wars and Blade Runner. Decidedly pro robotics and AI, without actually understanding either. Very frustrating, honestly. >>25844 >Opening cuts This movie started with brief vignettes of real robotic history that filled me with so much hope for realism. The robots are just mechanical replicas with human brain scans for AI >>25847 >Almost all non-white >Marry Sue Should have been my warning to be honest. Brief recap for the movie; Robots evolve to being basically human by wholesale stealing the design and minds of people. They are people, in every single way aside from metal bits California is so incompetent they nuke themselves. They chimp out and commit genocide and destroy technology instead of taking responsibility. They regress to using CRT`s and only advance military tech. They commit genocide against Asians because they use technology and robot labor. The US military nukes the daughter of the dude who invented human like robots. Her husband is a US soldier. He finds his daughters replicant. She can control electronics because raisins. Only works and doesn't work when plot relevant. He realizes genocide for Californian idiots is bad actually. Kills a bunch to reach his dead wife. (None of it makes sense, he's murdering people he's trying to stop genociding.} Finds she wife only became braindead from being nuked, somehow. Kills her after stealing a copy of her mind. Goes to the nuke machine to prevent California from commiting more nuclear genocide. Replica daughter finds a robot and puts her moms mind in it Nuke machine blows up, daughter escapes while soldier kisses robot that has his dead wife's brain scan, her second incarnation dies from nuking, like pottery California is sad they can't genocide random rice farmers The end

Nono (Buster Machine 7) is a cute and happy robot girl whom is willing to do absolutely anything to be with those she holds dear. She is capable in combat, able to leap to incredible heights and cut with precisely with her finger nails. How she functions is largely unknown. It is shown that she eats, and sleeps like normal people, without breathing. Her body is comprised of a soft yet durable skin over some muscle like actuators and a skeletal system that matches a simplified variant of a persons.Though it is unknown if she can reproduce, she is shown to have breasts, a vagina, and anus which are implied to match standard functionality. Aside from super human strength, durability, and absurdly round and perky breasts.

>>25888 >Zenonzard I watched it. Disappointed because only the first episode or two is about the robowaifu. Rest are all different characters. Apparently, its based on some mobile game, which shut down a few years back. Not that good tbh.
>>25901 Thanks for the reminder, I had this on my list for quite some time, but never watched it. >>25905 Thanks for the warning, but I'm going to give the first episode a try.

>>25888 >>25895 I am also surprised I didn't post about it before. After watching it as it aired, it is yet another story that seems to be about AI but isn't. Rather, it uses replicants ala Blade Runner. It does have some very poinient and thought provoking critiques on how modern culture turns people into NPCs. There are some horror concepts that are really clever related to replicants. Overall, a very thought provoking and entertaining show. Main robot girl is cute too.
>>18711 > Casshern Sins: https://www.anime-planet.com/anime/casshern-sins This is part of a bigger franchise, I do not recommend reading about this before watching Casshern Sins, though. Just wanted to mention these: https://www.anime-planet.com/anime/casshan (prequel) https://www.anime-planet.com/anime/casshan-robot-hunter (prequel) https://www.anime-planet.com/anime/infini-t-force (sequel) ... And a few specials and a seemingly bad movie. Casshern Sins seems to have the highest rating, and it starts with the main character not having any memories, so it's probably still best to start there. The beginning isn't necessarily the best point to start. I started watching it and like it so far. It's dark, mysterious and melancholic. Also, there's a typo in >>18711, it says anime-lanet in the line and link about Casshern Sins.

>>22810 >Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete aka "In Search of the Lost Future" Which one is the gynoid? https://www.anime-planet.com/anime/in-search-of-the-lost-future/characters >>20700 For some reason I have this on my list of shows I don't want to watch. Why? I guess someone told me it was silly and childish, but I don't know. Also, Nia Teppelin isn't categorized as cyborg or robot on Anime-Planet, nor as any artificial organism. You seem to confuse clones or something like that with "human like organisms", but they're just humans. Or they missed something. Here she is described as artificial being: https://gurrenlagann.fandom.com/wiki/Nia_Teppelin ... hmm

>>25996 Silly and childish It is as silly and childish as Neon Genesis Evangelion or Mahoromantic. It's Gains, a heaps of depth if you think about it, cool fights and hot chicks if you turn your brain off. >Anime-Planet Not a good source of information. Wikia and first party media are much more accurate. In the case of Nia Teppelin, she's a construct created by the Anti-Spirals, whom requires their power to exist. She was not born, she was engineered as part of a control system and her creators have some computer based remote control over her based on the anime. She can over ride this control, in a way similar to Replicants defying orders in Blade Runner. I've watched Gurren Lagann, that's how I know. I get that Replicants are an edge case for us. Genetically engineered people are less robotic in essence compared to non-biological machines. I do want to make them someday. Biological robowaifu will happen and fiction often helps technology become reality.
>>25997 Okay, I'll put it back on my "want to watch" list. It's possible that some people hated it for bad reasons, and I fell for it. When it comes to find something Anime-Planet is mostly working, but they might have some gaps. There's no tag for something that isn't a robot nor a cyborg. My confusion about your use of the term "Replicants" is coming from Blade Runner where I always thought of them as humanoid robots, but now thinking again, if they were then they could just be scanned with an MRI or metal detector to find out.
>>26001 That's understandable. Biological robots are odd and rare in media. In the novel, Replicants were mechanical robots. It is a reasonable mistake to make. (I had made the mistake myself the first time I saw the movie. It took awhile for me to accept robots can be made of flesh. It still feels weird to me, honestly.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLHr1nvdH24
I made some calculation about how many anime with gynoids come out per year, on average over the course of some years. The trend is upward (a bit to my surprise), at least based on data back to 2010, but not much: >1.5 ... 1.0 ... 1.62 ... 2.0 2016-2021 it's six shows, 13 since 2016 till now, between 2010-2015 it was only nine. 2016-2021 was a bit of a low with only one show per year. It went up to 2 shows per year from 2021 till now, and 2023 isn't over yet. This isn't saying much about the quality, though. And in some cases the gynoid is just a secondary character. Luna Theme (Casshern Sins): https://youtu.be/Ozm_TwyyIHM >>26003 >It took awhile for me to accept robots can be made of flesh I still don't. I guess the whole idea behind Replicants in Blade Runner was just that they are just artificially created human slaves, with an maximum life time expectancy and normally being sterile. Which I was never aware of, and my opinion on that franchise declined even more by realizing that. One big difference is, that robots are programmed and programmable. Also, they could have backups of their mind. The big part of the idea about building robowaifus is in my opinion to not make them completely human and bypass laws in regards too humans, but also have the option to program how we want them to be. Western entertainment is really bad when it comes to humanoid robots. I just went through all the few quite positive shows and movies which include a gynoid, and realized that in absolutely none of them is it normalized that the human (male) is owning her as his property. Also, in most stories they get destroyed at some point. Japanese shows are at least somewhat better in these instances. To be fair, her getting destroyed doesn't make the story bad. I like sad stories, and it can have a positive meaning with her sacrificing herself for some human or her love-interest/master.
>>26012 >and realized that in absolutely none of them is it normalized that the human (male) is owning her as his property. With all due respect (and while in general I completely concur from what I've seen), Chobits appears to me an exception to this rule AFAICT. Though the story certainly toys with sentience/personal-autonomy of Chii herself (and there's also the exceptional case of Yumi Ueda as Mrs. Mr. Manager :^), otherwise all the others are clearly automatons alone -- even Yuzuki Kokubunji. And within the first 5 minutes of the show is the scene where Hideki balks at the high cost of Persocoms at the store? There's also the running gag over the high cost of H/W - S/W for poor starving students like Hideki. This show seems to me both a) quite positive about gynoids, and b) to clearly portray them solely as the property of their masters. Perhaps I'm missing something Anon? >=== -prose edit

edit of previous post >>26016 If you read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep (the book that Blade Runner is adapted from) it's explained that the entire reason behind replicants existing is because there are too many dangerous jobs and too few humans because Earth has become an irradiated wasteland (the world built in the book is nothing like the movie, all those neon skyscrapers straight-up don't exist in the source material). There's almost noone left on Earth, and a good chunk of the population is on fledgeling space colonies. In spite of that, technology managed to get better and better, to the point that a an/gynoid was impossible to tell apart from a human from visual analysis alone. Other tests, however, make it much easier. At least, until the next version comes out, because the company making them is in an arms race against law enforcement agencies. This is because the people making replicants are actively trying to close the gap so that their creations can function in society at the same level as people. A large theme of the book is asking the question of what makes a human a human, and what seperates natural from artificial. The aforementioned irradiated wasteland Earth has also given rise to mutated people who aren't considered human enough to leave for one of the developing colonies (I'm not talking tentacles for hands either, the bar the governments set is as low as it is arbitrary). The book also features people parroting whatever bullshit the government feeds them, feeding tnto the "AI bad" narrative that exists to maintain a failing status quo (much like today. There's also Mercerism, which is a major element of the plot that I don't fully understand beyond Mercer being Sci-Fi Jesus. To put it another way, the replicants exist to present the aforementioned question, and they're painted in a more sympathetic light in the book (they still do crimes, but the book makes it very clear that they're just trying to survive whenever the government goes after them, and they tend to live lawfully whenever they're not pursued). Though there's a lot going on in the plot, I'd say that the source material is better for our narrative than not, since it humanizes the replicants and shows that people and AI can get along. If anything, the only things painted completely negatively in the book are governments for being cruel and ineffective, and people in general trusting media a bit too much come to think of it, I see that a lot in mid-century novels. It's almost like the authors were trying to tell people something. TL;DR, read the damn book. It paints a better picture of the intended narrative than the movie and a much better picture than my rambling and is very thought provoking. I highly recommend it. One last thing to keep in mind is that while replicants are a major element of the plot, they aren't the entire point of the book. More a vehicle than anything else.
>>26016 In the book the replicates are basically backdrop characters to Dick's psycho-study dynamics. We can build you has a similar theme in the dubious separation between construct mind and human mind, but both books focus on emotional and psychological health more than what defines humanity in the face of an artificial reflection. If you read Electric Sheep then read We can build you as well. Electric Sheep is hard because the replicants are specifically more sympathetic than the human characters because Dick wanted to portray humanity as sick and lost, he's using them as a prop to demonstrate naivety vs cynicism. Rachel, the replicant raised to be human is as sick in the same way the human characters are.
>>26019 Well, I botched that. ( >>26016 ) should be ( >>26012 )
>>26020 I haven't heard of that book before, I'll track it down and give it a read.
>>26015 Oops you're right! My apologies heh, I guess that's the bit I missed. :P
>>26019 Thanks, but I even didn't think the Replicants where shown in a negative light in the movies. My issue is that they can't be distinguished from humans, which when you think about it, is only possible if they're more like modded humans. None of your arguments refutes my point. If anything, then it rather supports it. My point, that this isn't really a story about humanoid robots then. But maybe there are more details in the book to change my mind, that I can imagine, and I'll plan to read it one day for entertainment reasons anyways. >>26020 Yeah, so once again, at least the Western stories which are getting the most attention and made into movies or shows, are often or mostly not about humans and robots, but about all kinds of other things and "robots" or artificial beings are just being used as some metaphor.
>>25895 >Zenonzard The Animation >Episode 0 (promo) is here ... Yeah, don't waste any time on this. It's trash.
>>26026 No, We Can Build You is an odd one from PKD, he wrote it at the same time as Electric Sheep but released it after by a few years, even though it takes place before the events of Electric Sheep. It didn't get a great deal of attention. Gun, with Occasional Music, written by another author, has very similar themes and plot devices to both Electric Sheep and We Can Build you but uses genetically engineered house pets instead of replicants or androids. I read We Can Remember It for You Wholesale once but I don't remember a thing about the book so I suppose I'll give that a look through.
>>26024 I wasn't trying to refute your point (something I should have started my post with), If anything, I agree that gynoids should be distinguishable in some manner. I was just trying to say that there's more nuance to the story, and ended up going on a long-winded tangent. Sorry about that.
>>26028 No problem, just a misunderstanding. The story sounds interesting. (unrelated video by Redditor u/fisbur)
>>25847 >Did you watch the Planetarian movie already? Well I finally completed Planetarian: Hoshi no Hito, NoidoDev. Thanks for encouraging me to. I thought it both charmingly wonderful & painfully poignant -- exactly as I expected it to.
So I’m at episode 17 and this series is “supposed to be against robowaifus”? Have persocom would be neat. Excited to see how it will continue
>>26085 >So I’m at episode 17 and this series is “supposed to be against robowaifus”? I'm not sure where that idea came from Anon. I'm quite confident that I've watched the entire series at least about as many times as anyone I know here, and in my estimation it's highly-optimistic about the potential of robowaifus. The writing of the animu series isn't stellar, but it's solid enough. Same for the arts. Regardless, I can't think of a better SoL animu portraying commonplace societal acceptance of robowaifus -- even with it being 20+ years old now. I'd recommend both the mango (the Omnibus Edition (BlurPixel-Empire) is great quality), and the animu (720p [kuchikirukia] is good quality), as important 'required reading' to absorb the full /robowaifu/ lore.

>>26079 Oh, great. I watched the prequel "Snow Globe" only recently. I often listen to the related music on YouTube while doing something else. >>26085 > Chobits >“supposed to be against robowaifus”? I don't really remember anything like that. Most stories from the West have something negative, but anime not so much.
Some movies with titles (at least) that are of interest to this group: Maid Droid (2008) Maid Droid 2: Maidroid vs. Hostroids (2010) Maid Droid (2023). The first 2 are Japanese so hopefully more AI friendly than western movies. They can be found on a site called Rarelust. I haven't seen either so here is a link to the page where they can be downloaded, that has descriptions of each: rarelust.com/maid-droid-2008/#more-98234 The site also has lots of older scifi and niche movies like Metropolis, Cherry 2000 and Galaxina, as well as low-budget softcore titles that can be found by searching for "android" or "robot". That said, the download speed for non-Tezfile members is very slow. It took more than 20 hours to download the first Maid Droid movie. Because of this I have uploaded Maid Droid and Maid Droid 2 to a file sharing site with a much faster download speed so Anons with limited online access can get them. Links are good for 30 days: Maid Droid 2008 ufile.io/8zno25m0 Maidroid 2: Maidroid vs. Hostroids (2010) ufile.io/mg8szmvy Maid Droid (2023) is a low budget AI-gone-bad horror movie.
