The first thing I think of with "1138" is a reference to the movie classic "THX 1138". It involved a lot of AI.

I'm not able to come with any other references either in computer, AI, or even the year....

Some Japanese viewers at 2ch also think the number "1138" references the 1971 George Lucas film "THX 1138."

The number 1138 also appears in the various Star Wars movies and other movies by George Lucas (all of them references to THX)

Because of all this mention of THX 1138 I decided to start watching it.

Maybe just a coincidence but about 13 minutes into the movie they show a persons designation, and it's LUH 3417, and LUH 3417's mate is THX 1138. The model robot in episode 4 was LUH.

Maybe another reference to the movie, significant or not.

I'd say you spotted a ref .... its rare anymore for someone to make sci-fi film without easter egging little tidbits.

Something else I thought curious. I watched through all 4 eps again today, and in ep 4 Masaki says he's never seen an LUH model before. However there's one carrying groceries in episode 1. If not an LUH model, a very similar one.

Episode 5 has appeared on a streaming site, although not yet on the official site. Yet another great achievement. In 17 minutes, this gives us more than several episodes of most other shows, in thought and in feeling. More great camera angles and one fabulous bit of camera movement.

I just watched episode 5.

Sammi is so cute, I really hope they give more chances for her character to interact.

Is the next one the last episode? It worries me because we have a ton of questions left to answer...!

All of Tanaka Rei's characters are cute! Or so I think anyways.... Ep 5 was good. But hopefully we start to pick up soon and get some major development. OH WAIT, there's only 1 episode left huh? Dang....

I'll have to disagree, I despise Lacus Clyne and Mia Campbell too

(they're voiced by Rie Tanaka right? sorry if they aren't)

Just watched the episode over on Crunchy Roll. I really wish there was more Sammy. She is indeed cute.

I also wonder how the series will wrap up. With such short episodes and only one more to go... I feel it can only have a very open ended finish to the series. And the next ep seems to focus on Masaki, so I'm not really sure.

Perhaps the last episode will be twice as long... I hope so.

I don't remember when was the last time a series got better gradually at each passing episode. I've also noticed how little I've to say when I really enjoy an episode. Episode five was just......

I expect something open-ended and bittersweet. But I'm hoping the artistic success of this will get him backing to do a full series, if he wants.

I was looking at 2channel to find out how popular this show is among otaku (not especially) and discovered director Yoshiura Yasuhiro's own site. It has lots of news -- including the fact that he did a bit of work on the new Evangelion movie -- and a gallery of some of his drawing.

There and on the official site, there is also the info that there will be a Sammy image song CD, to come out on August 1, the same day that ep5 goes on sale, after its month of free streaming (on Yahoo, only in Japan). The singer, of course, will be Tanaka Rie.

Ep5 is on nicovideo now.

Here is an animated gif of Sammy from 2channel (2 megs). The poster wrote: "The moment when she became my waifu (jp.: ore no yome)."
Spoiler for animated gif from ep5:

Spoiler for animated gif from ep5:
See, this is why I think they're avoiding Sammy getting into a relationship with Rikuo. Consider that Sammy is technically Rikuo's father's property. How would his dad feel about his son "stealing" their servant? Not to mention how would he feel about his son getting into that kind of relationship? And yes, I think dealing with those issues could be very interesting - in much the same way as a drama set in the American South in the 1800's with the plantation owner's son running off with one of the slaves. But I suspect that would be a bit overt for what this series is trying to do...

Wow that certainly would be a plot twist! Actually the more I think about it, that would be a really intriguing way to end the series, with

I wonder how they would pull that off, I assume however that it will possibly deal with why he does have a robot at home, and maybe about his family's connections with robots and androids? Ahh I can't wait!

Here's hoping that will be the case. I simply don't want this show to end just yet. >_<
